Only one tasting note for this? HOW? I do remember someone on Steepster saying they loved this one, so I’m happy to try this sample. I wanted a nutmeg tea today and somehow this just happened to have it, so I went with it. Apricots even! Mmmm. I love that this blend uses three base black teas: golden Yunnan, Fujian and Assamica. (I’m also VERY glad that the new 52Teas uses the fancy black teas because I always hated the Ceylon in the old blends.) The flavors result in a lovely cup: mostly notes of apricot and hints of nutmeg. Exactly what I had hoped. I’m not really tasting the almond or cakiness. But that is completely fine, I like what I’m tasting!
