Palais des Thés Advent Calendar – Day 24
This is one of the PDT blends I wanted to try, yay! It’s an almond, vanilla, and spice green-oolong blend. Almond teas tend to disappoint me, but still I find myself intrigued by the concept…
This is stone cold now that I’m getting around to drinking it. But that’s okay, I usually prefer my teas room temperature anyway. There is a lovely sweet cinnamon note that’s warming but not overpowering. I do taste the almond as well – it has a marzipan-like flavor but is mild enough to not be cloying. The two together taste quite cookie-ish. Maybe something like a snickerdoodle but with added almond? The base is smooth and fairly docile – I can taste maybe a hint of the green tea’s grassy and leafy notes.
It’s yummy! I would consider ordering this one.
