Dry: This smells intensely of marzipan, which I love. Of all of the Winter Collection teas, this one is my favorite scent-wise. You can see the green tea with marigolds and cornflowers. It’s pretty.

Wet: The marigolds and cornflowers disappear and you’re left with a green tea with leaves that have opened up nicely. I recommend using an infuser with plenty of room.

The liquor is a golden green color. I can definitely taste the almond flavor and there is also some grassiness from the green tea. I also detect a very slight cherry flavor. This sort of reminds me of Zhi Tea’s Cherry Sencha which I am a huge fan of.

Overall, I love this tea and it’s my favorite from the Winter Collection so far, with 2nd place going to their Hot Chocolate pu’erh/black tea blend. Green tea and marizpan? HECK YES. I need to quickly buy a full-sized tin of this.

Flavors: Almond, Cherry, Grass

I’m a registered nurse working in the ER and currently a family nurse practitioner student. I’m also a tea enthusiast, video game nerd, foodie, fitness junkie, introvert, & nature lover. You can find me wherever there is tea and food!

I got started getting into loose leaf tea a few years back at (hate to admit it) Teavana. Since then I’ve started branching out. Black and oolong teas are my favorite and that’s what I drink the most of. I also like green tea, and white tea is okay. I like some rooibos tea blends and I’ve never had pu’erh.

My usual brewing method: 12oz mug, 1.5-2tsp loose leaf tea, fresh water heated to correct temp and steeped for correct amount of time (depends on what I am drinking). I use a Cuisinart 1.7L Perfect Temp Electric Cordless Kettle.

I want to get into the gongfu cha way of brewing.
