Holy Almond Cookie! Almond Cookies from Georgia Tea Company has really made me fall in love! Georgia Tea Company – be put on notice, I will be making an order with you again soon!
I have never ordered from Georgia Tea Company before but considering this tea, which is amazing, and their more than fair prices, I am holding myself back from ordering more now!
Now I do adore almond cookies, when I get one served to me at an Asian restaurant I squeal. I always seek out a better almond cookie in stores, and I am always looking for the perfect almond cookie tea. I have found mostly tisanes that make me happy when it comes to this flavor. Yet now, this beautiful green tea, with the sweet yummy goodness of almond! You know, as for the coconut, I don’t really get it as coconut like I do in other teas. However it must play some form of a good supporting role to the other elements in this tea because this is one of the best almond cookies I have ever had! Err, umm, I mean almond cookie teas!
I can taste the almond, obviously, the green tea gives a wonderful flavor and a healthy base, and yet I swear I can taste the crispy crumbly cookie in here too! You know how good almond cookies have that buttery, crispy, crumbly texture? That is this tea! And if I had to describe this tea any other way I would go with vanilla cake batter.
I think that the green base is affording the tea some of that buttery quality. You know quite honestly, I don’t want to explain this tea anymore. Call me selfish but I just want to sip on this all day, in bliss, and I think I am going to go order more, I mean its so inexpensive its crazy!
IN LOVE with this tea!
Snow Flake Tea from Sands of Thyme
Where To Buy: Sands of Thyme
Ingredients: black tea -Ceylon, -South India, -China, coconut rasps, flavor, almond flakes
I’ve said it before and I will say it again…I HATE WINTER. I don’t like being cold. I guess that is another reason I love tea…it’s a nice warm-up! I live in the snow belt and we’ve gotten slammed with snow this week so I thought it was only fitting to post a review about Snow Flake Tea from Sands of Thyme. Now THIS is a Snow Flake I like!
The Coconut and Almond gives this a neat flavor! I’ve had a few Snow Flake Blends from other companies before but this one has a mixed drink type taste to it that I am really enjoying! It also seems to leave a cookie-like aftertaste…this is a treat!
Another winner from Sands of Thyme!

Chai is a funny thing…It’s one of those “you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time” sort of things. Many people take their chai VERY seriously. Some people say the more spice the better where as others enjoy it more mild. Others always add additives and some no additives at all. I know of many people who swear by chai prep via stove top and others who have never tried that method and think that way of preparing chai doesn’t matter. AND…several people go back and forth about which countries are famous for their chai and which are not.
As for this specific chai…I thought it was ok. There really isn’t anything wrong with this chai at all. Not in my book at least. It smells spicy but not overly. I can certainly taste the spices. The spices are THE flavor. It has a bit of a funky aftertaste for me but it’s still ok. The thing that stands out on this chai, for me, were the spices. I can taste little else past the spices, actually, but still think this is a decent chai to have on hand.
Question of the day: What are your personal preferences with chai?
