Received my Twinings samples in the mail and since I’m running fairly low on loose leaf altogether and am almost completely out of my go-to morning teas, I gave this a try. I guess that’s life as an unemployed college student who’s just finished Christmas shopping for friends & family. Ah well. This tea kind of makes up for it!
A lot better than I expected from a bagged tea, but I see that’s a trend with Twinings. I definitely taste the almond, sweet with a bit of a floral note, and extremely fragrant. I don’t really taste any spice or much of the black tea base, just the almond. It’s getting a bit astringent as I reach the bottom of my cup, but I quite like it. Not bad at all.
