So the only other review for this tea is by Dexter3657, who loved this, but as I sip away at my mug, I can’t help but feel like we are drinking two completely different teas. I am finding the taste a bit off, like rather than the tasty flesh of the almond, I got all the woody skins (wow that sounds more morbid than I intended). Nothing is really coffee-esque to me and there really isn’t anything in the ways of chocolate either. I suppose this one is just not for me, though I will play with it a bit more to see if I can make it work. Hopefully, OMGsrsly’s experience with this tea will be more akin to Dexter’s when I finally get around to sending her her half (I am sorry it has taken so long btw!)

Sorry you didn’t like this one. To each their own – but maybe try lower water less steep. LOL That’s what I’m telling everyone who doesn’t like a rooibos tea. 90C 3 minutes….

VariaTEA

I did 95 for 5 minutes so maybe that was the issue :P

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
