Tea #2 from the Here’s Hoping TTB

I’ve been wanting to try this tea for awhile, it seems I lucked out with this being the second tea I pulled out. After taking my first sip of this tea, I understand why so many people have recommended it to me, it’s absolutely delicious! It really does somewhat remind me of brioche, even though it has been years since I’ve had any. This tea has a very rich flavor with an almost buttery feeling to it and the almonds taste like almonds. That may seem like a silly thing to say, but so many times almond flavor comes across as artificial and somewhat gross. I’m really glad I ordered some of this in my first American Tea Room order, I can see myself quickly going through two ounces of it. It also gives me high hopes for the herbal version I ordered as well.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec

Totally agree about the almonds, and how much almond flavor bears little resemblance to the actual nut, more like amaretto liqueur.

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
Pu-erh

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Teawares:

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
