This (unfortunately discontinued, but Teavana sells a suspiciously similar variety I’ll have to try..) wonderfully sweet tea has to be one of the most heavenly scents I’ve ever smelled. The tea itself is gorgeous to look at, with bits of red cinnamon and white almond slivers amongst a generous amount of black tea.. honestly, I could just leave this tea in a bowl on my table to look at and smell and be happy without bothering to taste it.

A tad bland on its own, a teaspoon of honey and a dollop of milk (almond milk in particular does the trick!) makes this tea live up to its look and scent. There is little tea flavor to be found here, the creamy vanilla flavor of the cinnamon and almond completely dominating both the nose and the taste, but that’s not a bad thing at all for a dessert tea. I’d prefer this to a real almond cookie, honestly. It’s particularly good on a snowy winter night but I find myself making a cup of this once a week even in the middle of our humid DC summers.

This is the joint account of Cash and Chris, two American University seniors and roommates with a love of tea and a shared collection that makes two separate accounts pretty pointless. Each tasting note is signed by which one of us wrote it.

In our photo, Chris is on the left in the plaid and Cash on the right in the poncho.

Cash is studying psychology and works at the Apple Store. He enjoys drumming, overanalyzing, and hoarding.

Chris is studying criminal justice and works for the EPA. He enjoys being terrible.

Send us a message if you’d like to do a tea trade, we’re always down to try new varieties!

Cash: I am on an epic quest to acquire some of 52teas’ Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. It sounds like literally the perfect tea to me, and I will trade ANYTHING in my cupboard for it. Seriously. Send me a message if you’ve got some to spare.
