I bought this tea a while ago at a tea shop near my house because I couldn’t resist: I love love love marzipan, so I had to get a sample. I’ve made it before, but not since I’ve become really into tea. I noticed just before I made it that it has papaya bits in it too, which add some natural sweetness, but I was afraid that they would make the tea fruity and that I didn’t remember it right or notice it before.

I needn’t have worried about the papaya; this tea actually does have a fruit undertone, but it says stone fruit/apricot to me more than tropical papaya. Anyway, the flavor is all robust almondy marzipan. It’s very strong, which I totally love. Yum marzipan!

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.
