Drink Me: Distinctly Tea, Almond Cookie Green
Every year my sister goes up to Canada to attend the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. This year she brought me a trio of teas from Distinctly Tea. The first one I decided to try was Almond Cookie Green.
From the label, the blend contains green tea (China sencha), coconut rasps and almond flakes.
It is available in a variety of sizes and prices: 50g for $$6.75, 100g for $13 (Canadian prices), 250g for $31.75 and 500g for $52.75.
When I opened the package I could smell the coconut and almond. Once brewed it smelled just like an almond cookie. There was definitely a green tea flavor but it, like all the other flavors, were mild. This was a lovely mid-afternoon treat. I also think it would be sweet iced.
