This one I threw into my order of samples because I couldn’t not! Almond oolong, oh yeah. And yeah, this one is fab. Tons and tons of almond flavor, like amaretto or marzipan. Yum. I’ve mostly had almond black teas, and I think the oolong base works well with it. It supports without overtaking it, and the almond brings out the buttery-ness in the oolong. I prefer it to the roasted oolong base of the Fauchon 2013 Sweet Almond and Orange in part because I don’t need the roastiness all the time. I think this would be awesome combined with a rose oolong, which is also on my list of oolongs that need replacing, since DF seems to not be carrying Rose de Mai anymore. If only My Green Teapot had a rose oolong too!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
