drank Berry Almond Amaretto by Teavana
1850 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: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
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: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
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.
