1 Tasting Note
I like this tea on occasion, especially since I like to serve it to my composer friends in honor of Stravinsky. The almond flavoring takes some getting used to, but it grows on one. I was sorry, therefore, to see that it has apparently been discontinued by Kusmi. This is not the first time I grew to like one of their teas and then had it withdrawn. They made many flavored teas with fruit essences, including my favorite “Figue.” The fig flavor was musty and just right, unlike lots of fruit-flavored black teas. I purchased this at a shop in Florence in 1999. I have tried repeatedly to find it again and even wrote to the company. They claim they never made it. But I have the tin with brown label to prove otherwise. Has anyone else ever tasted this?
