Steeped this one a little longer this time at a lower temp, and it really brought out the almond. Immediately after steeping I got a very vegetal aroma with an almond background, but as it cools the veggie slides to the background and the aroma is primarily almondy bakery/cookie.

It’s quite tasty, and if I divorce my expectations of a marzipan/almond extract-like almond flavor from the tea, I’m really enjoying it for what it is: a smooth green tea with a nice cinnamon cookie-type (almost a slightly almondy snickerdoodle?) taste.

Bio

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: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: 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
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
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.
