There’s something profoundly magical about the combination of stone fruits and almond, and this is indeed a profoundly magical tea. The first thing that hit me straight out of the bag was the scent of sweet, ripe cherries. once brewed, it’s joined by the fragrance of almond, with notes almost reminiscent of glace cherries and marzipan. The first sip, however, reveals a much more understated, pleasant sweetness, with a tart undertone and crisp, lingering apricot finish. Magical. It’s sweet, slightly playful, definitely sexy, with a complex mouthfeel that’s at turns sharp and velvety plush. If you could hug tea, I’d hug this one until my arms stopped working.

Also, discovered on the way to dinner this evening that the tea place that’s hiring in the same building as my erstwhile dayjob. As far as dayjobs go, I think I could handle selling people tea, yes?

They’re my greatest and most beloved vice.

Wow. You really know how to sell this tea!

I may slightly still have unrealised and unrealistic ambitions of being a food writer when I grow up.
