whistlingkettlesnowflakeI checked out The Whistling Tea Kettle's website before choosing to review a few of their teas. It's a wonderful website with lots of tea options, Tea Ware and even a Tea of the Month club!

When I chose Snowflake, I knew that I generally like teas with almond, teas with coconut and teas with cinnamon. But I couldn't quite imagine what these 3 flavors would be like together.

The sample packets were quite large so I was able to have several cups of tea. I usually have one cup, form my opinions, have a second cup and begin writing the review in my head. If I made a mistake in brewing I like to make sure I have a third cup before writing the review. And I like to spread those cups out over time to make sure I'm not just influenced by a nice sample.

Well, in this case, I drank my sample up in 3 days!! After the first cup, I craved another cup so much I couldn't resist and brewed up a second cup that day. I forced myself to wait, but I continued to crave this tea! It was delicious!!

It was a nice dark tea, with little bits of coconut sprinkled throughout. It had a wonderful nutty scent. I used one teaspoon in my tea strainer. I brought fresh cold water just to boil and then I steeped it for 5 minutes. This was perfect!

It looks light, not heavy, but I found that it took milk wonderfully! It had a naturally sweet flavor which made it a perfect afternoon treat or dessert tea. The coconut flavor actually takes a backseat to the almond and cinnamon, which I liked. The cinnamon was not very strong, but I was amazed at how well it blended in with the other two flavors.

I'm not sure why it's called snowflake as it doesn't conjure up winter flavors for me. I tend to prefer certain teas in certain seasons. This was much more like coconut almond flan that I might make in the fall. I say that because it blends a taste of summer with a taste of fall. But a name is not really important. The flavor is and I loved the flavor of this tea.

I figure since I have craved this tea ever since I tasted it, I ought to give it a high rating. If you like dessert teas, and enjoy nut flavors, I would encourage you to try this tea. I think you'll be as surprised as I was at what a great experience it is!
