Honestly, I forgot I’d purchased this blend. I discovered it while frantically searching for my stash of Peachy Lychee (which I realized I’d shipped to, ironically enough, grandma’s house and not my home in Houston — grrrrrr Harvey!).

This is lovely. I’m glad I bought two large bags. It has reminded me how much I adore teas that feature apricots. The warming spice blend is really nice and compliments the flavor of the dried apricots quite nicely. The almond essence really helps give it that cake-y vibe. It reminds me a lot of an applesauce cake I made last year for, again, my grandma, that was heavily spiced and laden with dried fruits.

Needless to say, I’ve worked my way through most of the first bag. It makes a killer latte, but it’s a lovely hot/straight cuppa too. It’s very comforting and reminds me of my childhood spent baking, whilst perched on a little step stool, in granny’s kitchen.

Flavors: Almond, Apricot, Baked Bread, Cake, Ginger, Nutmeg

How did I miss this one! How sad is that.

If memory serves, I believe it was the tea of the week at the tail end of August. I’m hoping it’ll be re-blended later this year. It’s proving to be a very cozy, warming blend on a day like today where the temperature hovers around freezing.

It will definitely be on the poll when we run it to determine which teas will be in the 12 Teas of Christmas box. It sold out pretty quickly!
