Simpson & Vail Advent Calendar – Day 6
(originally written November 6th)
Yay, almond sugar cookie! This is one that I got a full 2 ounce pouch of when I ordered this advent box. Simpson & Vail’s shipping is crazy expensive, so I added a few teas to reach the free shipping threshold. Their teas are so inexpensive, it’s crazy!
Anyway, I’m perfectly happy to have a cozy cup of this tea while eating my homemade adult lunchable and listening to Christmas music at work. Yes, I know that it’s only November 6th. But by the time I post this, it’ll be December 6th, so ha! I happen to love Christmas music, so I try to get as much mileage out of it as possible. :)
Yummy sweet almondy cookie goodness. This is also tasting a bit earthy this time around, which reminds me of black walnuts. But still tasty – like a buttery shortbread cookie with almonds (and walnuts). It’s quite a light tea overall, and I think the light base tea lets the almond cookie flavor shine.
Flavors: Almond, Butter, Cookie, Cream, Earth, Sweet, Walnut
