I’ve tried about 7 teas from this brand and every single one has been disappointingly lacking. The kind of tea where if you drank it, you couldn’t place the flavour until someone told you what it was, then you spend the rest of the cup convincing yourself you’re drinking said flavour.
So I usually steer well clear, but I was lured into buying a packet from the smell of the leaves! The smell is heavenly and incredibly almondy, which instantly made it a contender to replace The Best Marzipan Tea In The World from The T Shop (which I believe has been discontinued). I couldn’t have been more wrong! The tea base seems to be a typical for Tea Total, meaning it tastes like nothing. You can get away with a crappy tea base on occasion if you have some kick-ass flavourings, but surprise – it barely tastes like anything. I can pick up a very faint hint of weird vanilla, with perhaps a ghost of an almond. Or maybe I’m imagining the almond simply because its in the tea name and I want to believe I can taste it…
Oh Tea Total. You are like the on-again-off-again boyfriend I keep going back to even though you treat me like crap because I want to believe you can change! But after 8 tries, I think we are finally done. For good. I’m blocking you on all my social networking sites and will cease to answer your texts/calls/emails/weepy knocks on my door at 3am.
