Whew, haven’t had a tea like this in a while.
Yes. Amaretto in tea form.

No rooibos woodiness. SO SO flavourful (less almond flavour on the second steep, but good for 2 at least). The apple is barely there (thank goodness). It’s creamy, and the aroma is just as strong as the dry leaf. Amaretto, all the way.

I’ll admit I don’t think I would drink this all the time, or in the summer months, but in the fall/winter it’s going to become as permanent a tea in my collection as I can make it.

A great pair with my… bologna and baconnaise sandwich. Jealous? Probably not. But you have to admit I’m pretty damn fancy.

I bought this when I went to the store this afternoon based on the smell and your review. Can’t wait to try it.

DaisyChubb

Oh my gosh I hope you like it! One of the best rooibos’ I have ever tasted!

Cattibrie

If I don’t like it I will just regift it to my SIL who loves Amaretto. I am sure I will though.

You are SO right. Definitely amaretto. I probably wouldn’t have identified that properly without reading it, but that is exactly how it tastes.

This is def one of my faves, based on your review. It is a staple for fall and winter for me too.

Profile

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
