First to make a tasting note for this one? Thanks Darby, for sending this with our trade!

The steep color is a medium brown. I guess I always expect black teas to have a deeper color. But this one didn’t have a ton of flavor either. That’s a good thing though, because there wasn’t a ton of almond flavor that would have been masked by a stronger black tea. I’m pretty sure most of the almond taste didn’t come from the few tiny almond bits in the blend, but the “natural flavoring”. And the almond was really only present with a few of the sips and mostly at the top of the cup. I wish there were more to say about this one! Nothing terrible but nothing special.

That’s a shame. With a name like that, it should be fragrant with almond with hints of rose, orange, and vanilla. I’m a big fan of the stuff it’s named for.

Tea Sipper

I had no idea what what marizpan is.. but I definitely don’t think I got any rose or orange in this. I’ll keep that in mind though, the next time I drink it!

Marzipan is traditionally ground almonds with sugar and rosewater. Sometimes it’s made with orange blossom water and/or vanilla. It’s an old world candy traditionally colored (sometimes gilded) and shaped into fruits or used to cover cakes.

Tea Sipper

ah, okay. That sounds delicious.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
