drank Marzipan by TeaGschwendner
56 tasting notes

Its name is no lie. This stuff smells like marzipan. The greatest almond, sugary dessert known to mankind. When I open the bag, it’s a whiff of almond that doesn’t go away when the cup is steeped. The leaves have little bits of almond in it, which provides the delicious scent.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t translate too well to the tea. The black is a bit too strong to carry the subtle almond flavor, and it eventually tastes like simple black tea. I gave it a few tries, with varying steep times and water temperatures, but the result remains the same. So disappointed that the marzipan scent doesn’t come out in its taste. This probably would have been my favorite tea ever.

Guess I’ll have to eat real marzipan instead (such a sacrifice).

I had the same problem with another almond tea I had! If it has almond bits in it, I found if I steeped it for about 7-8 minutes, the almond flavor was more predominant :D Each tea responds differently to longer steep times, however. _ But if you’ve tried steeping for that long, then I agree, SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE! :D

Yikes, I haven’t gone that long! I’m almost afraid to. I might have to experiment…
