drank Almond by Adagio Teas

I’m not entirely sure how to feel about this one.

The tea itself is pretty solid. It’s not as sweet as I expected — more of a raw almond flavor than toasted almond — but I actually appreciate that. It blends pretty well with the tea to make a nicely flavored but sort of unexciting cup. Overall, it’s not bad, though.

BUT my problem comes from the scent. It smells like almond extract, but in an artificial way that is pretty off-putting. Steeping it mellowed the smell, but not nearly enough. It’s kind of ruining my enjoyment of the tea.

Bio

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
