It’s been too long since I’ve actually gotten affordable, non-fancy loose leaf, and I was really stoked about this one. I had a hard time deciding what to sample-I wanted to get some of the Dragonforce or Needlejuice, but those were not in the sampler option. Fortunately, I got this, Chaining, and Evoolong-all of which were exactly what I was looking for.
This one is pretty unique. I love the flavor combo, especially the rich almond, cranberry, and pistachio, though this last nut is more subdued and creamy in comparison. I drank this tea straight, and though the marizipan was a bit much, I still liked it immensely. I think I’ll try this with milk and sugar, maybe just sugar next time. Either way, I’m pleased.
