It seems I am the very first to review this tea, damned…had to create the tea in the database as well.
I was curious about this tea especially because I like very much nutty teas.
Of course I wasn’t searching something similar to Pleine Lune as Amande Amaretti is a simpler tea, with a single flavour : almond and even bitter almond.

The dry leaf scent is really strong bitter almond, like the amaretto cocktail. It reminds me childhood as well as we got in France a glue with this scent, the glue Cleopatre.The problem was some children were eating it !!! Anyway it was inoffensive :)

So no worries, my tea has not a glue taste ;)
The way the almond comes on the tea base is lovely, they perfectly pair together.The balance is really perfect.

For sure it won’t replace my dear Pleine Lune but this a tea I will drink again with pleasure.

I wish their delivery wasn’t the equivalent of $20something, they have some teas I wouldn’t mind trying. Maybe I’ll order from Romania when I’m there. I wish I could drop by.

Dinosara

Haha you are trying all the teas that are on my list for Paris! Glad to hear your thoughts about these before I go. :D

Well Dinosara, as you I never had a bad Dammann Frères tea, there are just some I prefer to others.I still have 7 other Dammann teas to taste and as you are coming in Paris in July, you’ll get all my reviews before :)

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
