I have been looking for teas to enjoy at night time, and therefore I choose this decaf version of Vanilla Almond. I tend to love both nutty and vanilla flavors and therefore had high hopes. I detected a strong cherry almond smell at first dry sniff, and then while steeping it mellows out to a rounded vanilla/almond essence both in smell and taste. I find adding a bit of soy milk made it more dessert-like and brought out the cherry undertones. I really enjoyed this tea as it has a very natural taste and I find the aroma to be so relaxing. I would def re-buy this when I run out.
