Almond Biscotti Black Tea

My Tea Thoughts:
December 19, 2009

Almond Biscotti Black Tea leaves look like normal black tea, with one important difference: the almond slivers. After brewing, it's a clear auburn color, with minimal sediment compared to some teas.
Smell. The smell of Almond Biscotti is almost unbelievably sweet, nutty, and luscious.
Drink the steam. This tea's steam is not very flavorful; I could hardly taste the tea quality of it. (Fortunately, steam drinking is not a very important step.)
Sip. WOW! What an incredible basenote. It's sweet but not too sweet, with a really good black tea as the main event.
Slurp. Slurping highlights the 'biscotti' notes. Almond and honey are a couple I can pick out.
Gulp. This tea's texture is smooth yet strong. I am in love.
Think. Almond Biscotti Black Tea could go well with real almond biscotti! I'll have to pick some up. This tea was a Christmas present, so thank you -- you know who you are.

Happy Sipping,
