Amaretto indeed! This tastes like almond extract! I should use the liquid to make pancakes or something. I feel it would be better in baked goods than on its own. It’s a bit thin, yet intense at the same time. This may be better with some added chocolate. But who am I kidding? Everything is better with chocolate. I like this ok, but I can also do without it. Perhaps blending it with some other tea would be good. :)

I have yet to find an almond that does not taste fake! In my opinion only real almonds taste like almond…and nothing else will do. EXTRACTS ARE OUT! You end up with either bitter or a sour overdone blech. They should just give it up.

How do you feel about marzipan? I usually love almond flavor. But this one didn’t work for me too well.

Bonnie

You’re right! In baking I’ve used almond successfully with pastries. U got me there.

Mercuryhime

well, I wasn’t trying to “get” you, but I’m glad we agree. :)

Bonnie

It’s funny that you say this is better for baking cuz these over sweet tea’s I save to add as flavors to cake or cookie batter or muffins when I just can’t hack drinking it.

Mercuryhime

Before I was tea obsessed, I was baking and cooking obsessed, so the two interests often go hand in hand for me. Fortunately, this tea obsession won’t make me fat like my interest in cakes and cookies would.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
