I love almond, and I love almond rooibos. There’s no way this shouldn’t be a winner. Unfortunately, I don’t like it as much as other brands’ versions of this tea. Hot, I found it a bit weak, and cold, it has a sort of strange flavor. The marzipan-like almond is there, but it’s overwhelmed. I think I might just not love the particular rooibos used in this blend. It’s just a little, I don’t know, sour? Okay now I’m looking at the ingredients. I bet that’s the orange causing that. Orange with rooibos can sometimes be great, but I don’t love it here mixed with the almond. Maybe if it were an orange cream instead of a sour orange. It’s not terrible, but I don’t need to seek it out.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
