I went outside to check my mail but nothing was there, so now I am of course cold. This was in the nearest container full of tea, and the first one I grabbed that I’ve yet to try, so it was clearly a winner.
I was thinking it would be very almond, but the predominant smell is most definitely honey. I get the same taste from this tea as Bonnie: it actually reminds me far more of baklava than it does of biscotti. This has quite the bold base tea! It’s malty, but it blends so nicely with the sweet honey. The nuttiness adds a good bit of savory flavor to the cup, but I am still enjoying it a lot.
I don’t think it’s something I will buy for myself, but I will have no problem making myself a cup with the rest of the sample. It will definitely come in handy on a much colder day, preferably in the morning!
Funny story I have to tell now that I remember. I bought a couple tins of tea when I was with CupofTree and I left them in the paper bag and stuffed them in my suitcase yesterday morning. So what happens in the security line? They cannot see into the tins or whatever so a TSA agent has to take them out to inspect. I’m like seriously, they are tea. So of course they checked out as not being drugs but tea, and at least the agent was a super nice lady. In Atlanta they are SO mean which I thought was funny because on Saturday night, I was saying that the bartenders at the wedding were like genuinely touched when you thanked them. And people kept telling me it’s because people aren’t nice in Florida.
Anyway I was glad I had not purchased any oolong.
