Today I hosted a couple of my close friends for a tea tasting event. We tried all of the winter collection, and some of the new permanent teas from DAVIDsTEA.
This was by far the winner of the afternoon, with three out of four choosing it as the tin-worthy tea. (I prefered Snow Bunny to this, but, heck, I can get more than one tin!)
First impressions – The yummiest smell possible. I could just bring Alpine Punch around with me, sniffing it periodically during the day. Amaretto all the way. And, surprise surprise, it smelled just as awesome once steeped!
Flavor – Oh. Goodness. Gracious. Wonderful. Warm and rich and complexe and just slightly sweet. I love it. I’m just confused as to how this wonderful tea that smells like almonds and tastes like almonds doesn’t even include almonds in its description. Let’s review the DT description:
‘’We like to think it’s with a fortifying brew like this spiced rooibos ( don’t even taste it ), with apple ( nope ), cinnamon ( nu huh ), and ginger ( wha? ).’’
Loveability – heck ya. This one is a keeper.
