drank Roasted Almond by ESP Emporium
2165 tasting notes

2nd tisane of the evening… no I am not having a rocking Friday night but I have big plans for the rest of the weekend so I don’t feel too bad for being nerdy today. This tea should be called “almond apple” because it is quite fruity in addition to the almond. I wonder if this is the same exact tea that Joy’s teaspoon carries? Has anyone tried them both?

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I have – I have them both and to me they are exactly the same. I love them both dearly :)

TeaBrat

Thanks Azzrian, they do look the same

Indigobloom

and there is an almost identical one at Tea Emporium and David’s! popular blend huh

TeaBrat

I guess they are all using the same wholesaler or something!

Indigobloom

In the Toronto area, for sure… I saw one at Tealish as well, but I never had a chance to try that one though the ingredients are very similar

Kittenna

I feel like DT would have blended their own…? But yes, i have the same thing from Caraway Teas as well.

Indigobloom

yah I asked the people at tealish about it once because they had so many similar blends to other shops… didn’t really get a straight answer. They use different suppliers, so they say. I imageine David’s does as well, so I guess these are all copy blends?

TeaBrat

I bet it all comes from the same place… ;-)

Indigobloom

Amy I wouldn’t be surprised!

Tea Sipper

Yes, I’ve tried them both and I’m pretty sure they are the same. It’s one of my favorite blends though, so I’m not complaining!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
