I don’t know what these guys are on about. This tea is awesome the way it is. I used to have this every morning as a pick-me-up before class, and it was so much better than plain Assam, Darjeeling or other black teas.
The almond flavor is where it’s at. The Republic of Tea describes it as a ‘dessert tea’. It’s really sweet and flavorful, so, try it as that. It really puts a nice touch on the end of a good meal with friends.
Be careful not to oversteep it. If it’s bitter, it’s a disaster zone.
