Another new tea! Seriously though, I really have to stop buying tea. I’m in job limbo right now and playing Russian roulette with my bank account by buying tea. Grrr… I have no self control.

Anyway, I had never seen this brand before. I bought it after consulting Steepster while in the tea/coffee section of the grocery isle this morning, but really the words “Italian Almond” sealed the deal for me. I pretty much love anything almond-flavored and Italian, well… I’m pretty sure if I hadn’t married my husband, I would have sought out an Italian man.

The first thing I noticed upon opening the foil wrapping of the “20 luxury leaf bags” was the smell – amaretto filled the nose. So far so good! The tea bags bugged me a little. They felt like dryer sheets, which to me belong in the dryer, not my cup. After brewing a bag, it became even more weird. Kind of like a tough cocoon. That part I’m trying to not dwell on…

This is not a complex cup. Someone likened the taste to almond syrup, and I’d agree with that having added sweetener to it before even trying it. The taste is not strong enough for milk on it’s own, but maybe if it were brewed double strength it’d be alright. (I’ll try this sometime.)

So the tea itself is pretty good – not fantastic, but I like it and would probably pick up more, especially at 24¢ a tea bag!

I was given a single tea bag of this, and I’m thinking it must have been old. I couldn’t get any of the wonderful smell talked about by Auggy. And once it was brewed, I couldn’t taste any almonds. It mostly just had a bit of a tea and musty taste. I don’t want to give it a rating. since I feel like I definitely didn’t get to actually experience this tea, but I hope it was because this tea was old and left out, and not because that’s simply how the tea tastes.

I remember, I need more time to get used to this tea’s taste, at first. But now, I like it warm in the cool morning.

With or without honey, it’s great to cheer my morning up!

Having this tea in the morning would lift up my day. But enjoying it after dinner, on a cool evening, would be pleasant too.

I like to enjoy it in the morning, while breathing the fresh air on the yard and listening to bird chirping.

I love to have it in the morning or late night. Sometimes I add plain milk and brown sugar or simply sweet condensed milk.

I love to have it hot in the evening. After a busy day. Add a little brown sugar to please yourself with an exotic sensation.
