This is an ok tea. I think that I’ve had so many marzipan teas at this point that are amazing that it makes this one seem a little blah by comparison. It’s definitely not the best almond tea that I’ve had. There is a touch of bitterness and the marzipan aftertaste is a little too artificial. I think this one definitely needs milk; it tones down the bitterness and adds to the creaminess to make the aftertaste more authentic (but not quite amazing). I would drink it, but only if there wasn’t a better almond tea in my cupboard.
