Tea no.6 of the Tealish experiment:

The name should be AMARETTO Pie…Yerk, this one is not for me… My entire fault, shouldn’t have ordered it, the description did mention Amaretto. Though it might sound contradictory, I love true almond flavor but somehow I’m not a fan of anything Amaretto. Does it make any sens?

In this tea, I think the Amaretto flavor comes from one of those small bottles of artificial almond extract you put in cake. A few drops are OK in a whole cake, but a cup of it is too much for me!

So I can’t rate it, since I usually don’t appreciate this kind of flavor. On a positive note, it has lots of coconut in it, so if you are a fan of strong Amaretto taste, I guess it mixes well with coconut and you would probably enjoy it.

I taste none of the other ingredients, the Rooibos is lost in that overpowering almond essence.

I think my next Tealish testing will be a more pleasant one for my tastes. Creamy Cranberry. Does sound yummy :)

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)
