From this month’s Tea Runners subscription. I could have sworn this was advertised by email as being a black tea – if I had realized it was a green blend I honestly likely would have swapped it out for a different sample. That said, I’m glad I tried it because it wasn’t half bad!
The almonds and sort of gentle nuttiness that come through in the taste combined with the slightly more generic “red fruit” and acai notes (versus pomegranate in particular) did confuse me at first because they don’t seem super complimentary but it clicked for me as I was writing tasting notes tonight that they might be inspired by an acai bowl, which do often have nuts in them, so I feel like I’m more willing to forgive the seemingly random addition.
Medium bodied and very sippable without any true off flavours – just kind of pleasantly consistent from start to finish.
