On the seventh day of Christmas, Della Terra gave to me…Almond Biscotti!
Dry, this smells really, really delicious. Like marzipan, with a biscuitty undertone. Or a freshly opened box of biscotti, more to the point. I usually do get a tin of Italian biscotti for Christmas, so it’s quite an evocative scent for me. Looking forward to this one!
I was worried at first, because the liquor was quite dark green/yellow, even after just a couple of minutes. It actually tastes delicious, though. The almond flavour comes through first, and does have a biscuit like taste about it, too. It’s hard to describe accurately, but it does taste like an almond biscotti! The green tea base is fairly unobtrusive, but matches the almond flavour well. The flavouring is so strong it’s quite hard to taste the green tea at all, actually, which is a bit of a shame. Still, I’d rather have good flavour than a lot of bitter green tea. I have a feeling this one might actually have been okay, though. Still, great stuff this is.
