Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea, grabbed because MilitiaJim loves almonds
MilitiaJim: It tasted more almondy than it smelled which is a good thing.
AmazonV: The smell was so sweet, I think the tea needs sweetening to match the scent. I also think a splash of almond milk would do it well. This was a great tea.
