drank Berry Almond Amaretto by Teavana
1962 tasting notes

I bought a couple of ounces of this a while ago on sale just to try it out. Never got around to it until now.

It has hibiscus, so it’s not surprising that it brews up tart and probably is meant to be served with sugar. At first I got the sense of a pretty normal hibiscus-y fruit tea, meaning that the hibiscus drowns out most of the other potential fruit flavors. However, as I keep drinking this one, the intense almond/amaretto flavor built and built, almost lending a light sweetness or at least a diminishment of the tartness. I enjoy it. I also think it would be an awesome agua di jamaica base.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
