I just realized how “nut” focused my nighttime line up was tonight. Three out of four cups had nuts of some variety as central flavours. Huh; that was totally not intentional. I guess that’s just what I was in the mood for tonight?
Thank you VariaTEA for the sample! It didn’t smell too bad, but it seems like other reviewers I was rather unimpressed with this one. Overall I did get honey notes from this and some super vague, generic nut notes but nothing that I’d venture to call Pistachio. As for the Biscotti; I don’t know whether that came across at all other than the same generic, vague nuttyness.
Another downside; it was pretty astringent and, by the end of the mug, bitter. So any nice honey notes that slipped through were quickly drowned out with an unpleasant aftertaste.
At least it was a sipdown though; and I am happy to try it because this is something that probably would have appealed to me based on the name alone. And now I know that it really wasn’t my thing.
