The smell from this tea is much more stronger and appealing than the taste. This tasted like a watered down chai to me. The spices didnt come through in the taste, only the smell was nice and the white tea was nonexistent to me. I am saddened by the drastic difference between the smell and the taste as for I had high hopes.
Hmmm this tea is… hmmm, it is a good black tea with an almond flavor and a slight cinnamon flavor lingering around and I must say that by adding about a third of a teaspoon of german rock sugar the “cookie” like taste became more apparent and even more so once it cooled down slightly. I enjoyed this tea, but not one of my favorites… for me it was more so-so, but that is probably me just being biased since I am more of a white and green tea lover.
Update on my wonderful vanilla rooibos…ahhh how I love thee! I must admit I used to get the vanilla rooibos lattes from Starbucks at $3 something a pop and then I had an epiphany, why not try to make my own latte?! 1 cream and 1 sugar later and this is an exact replicate of the Starbucks version and so now I am even more in love with this treasure!
This is a very good tea, my only complaint is that the ginger is too much of a bite for me! I like ginger, but as a side note, not the main event! The other flavors make their self known as well, but not like the ginger! If the ginger was toned down this would probably be a regular for me to blend with other teas.
