I was hesitant at first about the almond flavoring in this tea. I trusted it would be high quality, but almond flavors vary widely. Oolong is one of my favorites, so it was no question I would like the blend, only how much. I have since made this tea five times and I only fall in love with it more each time I taste it. The almond is strong, but completely enchanting. It’s like I am enjoying tea and cake all at once! I even baked a batch of cookies tonight to enjoy with a cup of this blend. Though the tea itself is not really sweet, I find that it needs no sugar or honey, though I’m sure either would be wonderful with it.
