Not going to rate this one, as I MASSIVELY over-steeped it. The package didn’t include tea type and I was too lazy to look it up last night, so I just looked at the dry leaf and assumed it was an herbal blend. Unfortunately, there’s actually some black tea hiding amid all those fruit and nut pieces and the resulting brew was so bitter it was almost undrinkable. A splash of milk made it tolerable, but I definitely didn’t experience this tea at its best. Like most pistachio teas I’ve tried, it tasted more like almond than pistachio. Makes me sad, because Butiki’s Pistachio Ice Cream was one of my all-time favorite tea blends and it proved that a genuine pistachio-flavored tea is possible!

Flavors: Almond

Boiling 7 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
