I bought myself this for Christmas since my family didn’t get the hint when I got the catalog in the mail and I circled this one in the gift set and left it on the coffee table for all to see (I left it open on that page too). Anyways, I’m on my second cup and it’s a decent blend. The tea base is a stronger white tea than I prefer and the immediate smells and taste coming from this tea are almond and vanilla. I can get a hint of cardamom in the aftertaste, but I can’t say I taste the chamomile at all. This tea isn’t bad, although I think it would be better with less almond in it.
