I didn’t care for this one (Almond Indulgence, not Almond Cookie). The tea base is very weak, and I don’t taste a strong almond flavor either – this tea tastes a bit like I imagine hot water mixed with a bit of almond extract would. I’m not really tasting cinnamon either.
I tried using more leaf, since I like my tea pretty strong – this has made a big difference with some other Butiki blends, but no luck here. The tea was still weak, and there was this sweet flavor I couldn’t quite identify but really didn’t enjoy. Soy milk didn’t help either – it only enhanced the mystery sweet flavor.
This was my first almond-flavored tea, and I think almond teas are probably not for me – I generally go for fruit flavors or chais when I drink flavored teas, so this was a bit of a departure. That said, I have enjoyed Butiki’s Maple Pecan Oolong.
