Sample sipdown, woo! one more ziploc bag down, 60 or so to go. About a month ago I received this from TheTeaFairy and since it was a generous sample I am only now finishing it off.
The very first go at this, a month ago, gave me not a whole lot besides base. This time around I sniffed the dry leaf in the bag before deciding whether I was in the mood for this one or not. Surprisingly, I smelled a berry tartness that I did not detect before. Anticipating nice juiciness I brewed the entire sample, enough for a 16 oz mug.
It is a lot better than the first time I had it, I actually do get a faint berry flavour this time. Not sure about the almond. I still will not restock this tea but I am definitely thankful for the sample. This tea has such rave reviews on here that I would have bought a 4 oz tin without blinking. And I’m sure I would have found many people willing to take it off my hands (cough, Dexter3657 cough).
As it happens, I have Silk True Almond- Vanilla in the fridge and I added some since the tea supposedly has almond flavour somewhere in there. Makes for a way better cup.
Thanks TheTeaFairy ! You saved me from a purchase that would have been disappointing.
