I’m a little surprised this one wasn’t already in the database; I know Tea Desire isn’t the most popular company on Steepster but this is one of their more popular blends, so I was expecting at least one review?
I got it as a latte to go yesterday while I was in the mall; the smell is delicious dry: very fresh with the smell of sweet almonds and apple fritters. As a latte, I definitely did enjoy it, but I thought that the apple flavour was actually really lacking/muted by the milk. Instead it was more like I was drinking this very buttery, liquefied pie crust which -while not bad – wasn’t what I was exactly hoping for. I could also taste the sweetness of almonds as well as a very soft, floral rosiness in the aftertaste. I’d try it again – but straight. Hopefully the apple would be more present that way.
I drank most of it while talking to the sales clerk, but I finished the last while browsing the fancy candy store in the same mall to kill time waiting for the bus. I ended up buying Beer flavoured jellybeans and Rosewater Turkish Delight, although what I was really looking for was that green tea latte candies, but they were all sold out and only had the coffee ones from the same company.
Haven’t tried the jellybeans yet, but the Turkish Delight was DELICIOUS! Way better than any other Turkish Delight I’ve ever tried…
