The dry leaves have a nice sweet almond smell.
The liquid is very strong with the almond and a hit of fruit afterwards. I started out liking this cup, but I think for me the almond was just too much. I do like almond but more as a compliment to the tea and not the main note. I think I’ll mix the rest iced or add it to some black tea to spruce it up.
I’m starting to think that where they went wrong with the 12 HoliDays set is that all but one is herbal. I think there needs to be some tea added.
Tomorrow is Ginger Lemon Bash! I’m very excited as I love ginger. I recently had a Lemon Ginger Oolong that I didn’t think I would like because of the lemon – but it’s very good.
