Is my batch stale? I just don’t know what to make of this blend after reading the other reviews here. I basically taste a bland black tea- maybe a faint trace of flavor, but nothing more. I’d save this for when I’m in the mood for plain black tea, I suppose. I just really like almond, so I was disappointed. I’ve tried adding vanilla almond milk to it, and it certainly didn’t help anything. I’m not easily impressed by flavored black teas, so …. yeah. The dogs weren’t impressed when I let them sniff it either, and they like tea ;)

Yeah, I got that one because of the fantastic reviews. Was also very disappointed. Glad to hear I am not crazy.

Oh wait. I was thinking of the Almond Cookie one. I still had the same reaction though!

I would love to find an almond one that actually tastes good and almondy to me. Hmph.

I think they’re getting rid of the old batches. Maybe that’s why they’re on sale right now. Whatever the case, major dissapointment for me too. I’m looking forward to the Almond Cookie since many people seem to be rating it high.

@Liz – I like teagschwendner’s Gina Amaretta. I’ll send you a sample of that one too.
