I love the smell of this tea right out of the tin. I love the touch of sweetness, and the almond scent. Brewed, it’s a different story entirely. Just from the scent, all I can think of is yams/squash. Weird, right? I did not like this by itself, so I added a half tsp of turbinado sugar and could actually enjoy it. Makes me sad because the dry tea is so deliciously fragrant. I’m thinking maybe I brewed this one wrong? I will definitely try it again to see.

EDIT: As I sat and finished my cup, I liked this tea more and more. Still, next time I’ll play with the brewing time.

Bio

About Me: newlywed! I studied biomedical sciences and will start up medical school here soon. I love to read, paint, sketch, bake, crochet, knit, and lounge around with my Samoyed (Kenai) and two cats (Callie and Maya.) Fandom nerd and Disney girl.

About me and tea: I think I will always and forever consider myself a tea newbie.

I love learning new things about tea, and continue to branch out and try new tea as much as I can. For the most part my favorites seem to be dessert teas. Sweet tooth anyone? lol. I’d love to hear about other people’s favorites, and where you go for tea! My local choices are pretty limited, i.e. Teavana, so bring on the online shopping ;)

Rating System: I’ll try to stick to it ;P

75-85: Like it! I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, I might get this again if the craving hits me
55-75: I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, but probably won’t get this again
35-55: Hmm, Not bad, not great. I guess I’ll finish this cup… might try another depending
