Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
The question we get asked most is, “What’s with the name?” Our answer? When life pisses you off, that’s the best time to break out the vodka. But let’s be honest… sometimes you just can’t hit the bottle when you want to. But it’s ALWAYS time for a soothing cup of tea!
We are tea lovers. We’ve been there, done that, and have gotten pretty angry along the way. We’ve had jobs. We’ve had spouses. We’ve had kids. You know that all of them make you a total loon at some point until you can’t keep it bottled up any more and you start slamming a kid’s plastic golf club on the front stairs screaming at the top of your lungs, “I HAVE HAD IT!!”
Their motto: We Understand..
Personally: I ran into The Angry Tea Room on social media and contacted them about their tea. They were more then happy to send me a few samples to share with all of you. Of course I was curious about the name and the Logo is just as interesting as the teas. They are unique and different with an edge and the descriptions of the teas are fun to read and these folks, are real, they have been there, done that as they say and it shows in their products and descriptions.

Price varies according to how much you purchase.
REVIEW: On first open of the container I said out loud, to myself because not one other person was in the room “ That smells just like a cookie, smells sweet and vanilla like”.
Prior to brew: A lovely scented tea that will remind you of a cookie. It’s a beautiful mix with a sliver of real almonds here or there.
Brewed: A very slight light amber brew.
Scent: A sweet scent that smells not so much like a cookie but of a sweet fruit mixture.
Flavor: Surprisingly flavor with a fruit background. After that first sip you can taste more of the almond (sometimes the pallet has to adjust to the new taste sensation). One sip is never enough to taste a tea. After that you will taste a more sour slightly bitter tea, I’m not quite sure where that bitter taste is coming from looking at the ingredients and honestly does not remind me of an almond cookie at all. I’m curious as the added “flavors” have anything to do with it.
Sentiments: I loved the scent of this tea, however after a taste test I do not think the name matches the brewed tea. The tea is good however it is not reminiscent of an Almond Cookie.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “6”.
Till next Tea….
