I got this as an extra from David’s Tea when they mixed up something in my order. I probably wouldn’t have chosen this particular tea as I’m not hugely fond of walnuts – they irritate my mouth. But it turns out I didn’t have anything to worry about with this tea.
First of all the smell – oh the smell! – like sugar cookies that were straight out of the oven. Adding the water made the tea smell distinctly more nutty, more like a even combination of sugar cookies and toasted nuts.
The walnut flavour wasn’t nearly as strong as it could have been, which I’m perfect fine with, BTW. To be honest it’s more of a general nutty flavour that doesn’t really fit any particular type of nut. I can taste notes of coconut and almond in there as well as the walnut and there’s also a bit of sweet fruitness that comes from the pineapple.
