Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox – Round #5 – Tea #22
Oh what a magical list of ingredients this is! Almond, Apple, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Ginger, Oolong Tea, Papaya, Pineapple, Pistacho, Roasted Almonds, Roasted Chicory Root, Rose Blossom Leaves, Walnuts! A ton of things I love to find in tea. I’m very happy I get to try it. The fruit pieces are huge among the dark oolong. I’ve had baklava once years ago and as far as I remember, this is very similar. I wish the splenda like flavor wasn’t there, since it’s not even in the ingredients list. But I love the honey fruity sweetness nuttiness to the blend. The oolong doesn’t seem to do much but make the cup darker than the black tea I sipped today. Other than the splenda-like flavor, I just wish there was more flavor from these awesome ingredients.
