I smelled the tea at the boutique and remembered it to be a lot more sweet rather than spicy when I opened my bag… but maybe that’s because it was sealed up? Or maybe I’m crazy.

But anyway, I was a little worried at first that there would be a mystery icky flavor but was immediately relieved of that stress when I took my first sip.

Lovely, absolutely lovely. It’s spicy enough to really warm you through but the apple keeps it smooth on the throat and heart. I don’t really taste the almond, but I can kind of feel the texture a bit.

I really enjoy this tea. I’m excited to keep drinking it throughout the fall and winter!

“Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzo Okakura “The Book of Tea”
