This is really good. It’s not as almondy as other almond teas – the pistachio is actually the strongest flavor here. It provides a bit more of a savory edge, and some buttery taste to the tea that is really nice. A nice nutty tea when you don’t want something sweet.

I had this tea first without sugar a few days ago. It was fine, but the flavors were subtle and the black tea smokiness was a little strong for me. I’m having it again now with sugar, which improved the flavor in my opinion. I can taste the pistachio and I think I taste the almond as well, but the flavors aren’t as distinct as I would like. This is still tasty overall, however.

(Sample from silentrequiem. Thanks!)

When it comes to tea, I’m kind of a creature of habit. I mostly know what I like and what I don’t, which is what enables me to purchase (and review) mostly teas that I know I’ll enjoy quite a bit.

One thing I have found I don’t often like are these dessert teas that taste like something else. However, during my last trip to Capital Teas I was 2 oz. short of the pound discount, I love all things pistachio and I was feeling a bit adventurous, so I decided to wander out of my tea comfort zone and give this one a try.

I’m so glad I did.

The one thing that attracted me to this tea was the smell. It had a mostly pistachio smell, along with what I think was coriander. I usually don’t like teas that smell like that, but I was all in.

I added some sweetener, which is my custom for these dessert teas.

Simply put, I have never had a tea that tasted more like a cookie before. It was great.

While I taste the almond and what I believe to be coriander, pistachio is very much the dominant flavor which is probably why I like it so much.

No dessert tea will ever taste as good as a nice iced black or hot white tea, but this one surely gets to the neighborhood!
