I have been slowly savoring my bag of Marzipan as I was aware it was no longer listed on the shops website :(
Welllll – it’s back!!! Oh My Goodness, this has made me so happy I could dance ╭☆╯
An absolute treat of sweet almond flavour, that can only be likened to drinking a battenburg cake – something so deliciously morish that I think I’ve made myself sick each and every time I’ve been faced with one .. Not that this tea will make you sick, oh no, but you WILL require more than one cup :D
PS: info above says it’s good with Danish biscuits, well I’m currently munching on home-made Springerle, and the combo is utter perfection ♡
Why do companies insist on giving their teas misleading names? The aroma of this is divine creamy-spicy-chai, but the flavour is a lot more muted and is more like a basic vanilla cinnamon tea. Still tasty, but I wish more of those chai spices would come through in the cup!
Luckily I wasn’t “looking for a legendary experience” as the description asks, otherwise I would have been sorely disappointed. A little fruity, a little floral, all around a “nice” tea. Nice in that inoffensive and uninteresting way though, and far from ~ legendary ~. SIGH.
For about the last two weeks, every time I brewed a cup of Earl Grey Excelsior aka The Fierce-est Earl Grey That Ever Earled, I made a mental note that I needed to buy another packet. Today the unthinkable has happened: I have run out completely!
A thorough and frantic rummage through my cupboard thankfully unearthed this sad wee forgotten packet with a single teaspoon left inside.
Perhaps I have an earlier version of this earl grey, as the ingredients only list bergamot and lavender in the blend. The resulting infusion makes for a very mild cup – too mild for my tastes and similar to a bagged earl grey with the smallest hint of lavender. At least I don’t have to wait too long for a proper bergamot fix!
Miss Sweet REALLY IS Sweet! She sent me this tea as well as others from NZ and I’s so grateful for her!
This smells awesome! The taste is equally as strong…it totally fits the description STRONG ALMOND…and I mean STRONG ALMOND!!!! It’s all about the ALMOND here, folks!
Did I mention it has Almond!?
Thanks again Miss Sweet! Can’t wait to try the others you sent! :)
A darker and more warming cinnamon black tea than Hot Cinnamon Sunset, but I still think this tea is let down by the low quality tea leaves (which doesn’t make a difference with their Marzipan blend because the almond flavouring is so strong). I would definitely drink this plain, as adding milk mutes the flavour of the tea completely. However this is a great option if you find the Harney & Sons cinnamon too sweet, and the t leaf T cinnamon too dark!
One of the most delicious flavoured black teas I have ever come across! With natural almond flavouring and almond slivers, this tea is an absolute delight – I prefer mine with a tiny splash of milk, but it stands up well on its own. Fingers crossed they get this flavour back in stock soon, I’m not sure how long my current bag will last…
