What makes Turkish Honey different than other honey!? I guess it probably doesn’t matter, this tea didn’t taste anything like honey anyway – but it was really good! The aroma of the teabag (yes, I am the weirdo who smells the teabags) was all sweet almond/amaretto but the steeped tea? Surprisingly complex!
It’s obviously quite sweet, and that’s fair and expected for a nougat flavoured tea. It’s got the the rich sweetness coupled with the strong almond notes and those just go hand in hand, but it’s also a little creamy and a bit bitter like burnt sugar. Everything is in just the right proportions for nothing to feel too heavy handed but all the flavours are crisp and clear, and well defined. I’d actually buy this, if I had any clue how to.
