One of my favorite dessert teas. A touch of cream and a little honey…mmmmm good.

A black tea with the scrumptious “cookie-like” flavor of almonds and cinnamon bits, especially tempting sweetened with rock cane sugar and a splash of milk.

Medium bodied, slighty sweet, and with definite hints of almonds and sugar cookies in the flavor. It’s my favorite tea to drink in the mornings; I brew a pot full when I wake up. I think it might go well with just a bit of sweetener and milk, for those so inclined, but I drink mine “neat.” Doesn’t handle a second infusion very well, unfortunately. And it will get bitter if you leave the infuser basket in the teapot for too long — I take it out after about 6 minutes.
Okay, the smell of this one SOLD me at Teavana. Those sneaky salesmen are pretty intense in OKC. Geez… Anywho…
I brewed this bad boy up and found that I’m just not a huge fan almond in tea. There is a dough taste, an almond cookie (duh) taste that is just too watered down to really be enjoyable. Side note, I took this with sugar only, no milk
This tea will taste fantastic with cream and more sugar, I used 1/2 a teaspoon for eight ounces. This review is, however, only covering water and light sugar.
So, in my opinion… This tea needs to be richer, a deeper black tea would have suited the other components quite a bit.
