drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA
620 tasting notes

Tea to go for me, and free at that. The initial SA buggered off and passed me on to another person, who was very helpful, and she comped the tea for me.

It tastes lovely, but I can’t tell if there is much difference between this and Alpine Punch. I might need to pick up more of each and evaluate at home. Anyone know if lapacho is better for you than rooibos, or are they really just two peas from the same pod?

More later, but it was yummy and I enjoyed it.

I think the main claim to fame for lapacho is its cancer and infection/parasite fighting ability. There are rumours about it, and even the cancer society reports potential benefits, or so I am told.
Otherwise I think it also has the standard antioxidant properties. (Also anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and so on)
I tried this a few years ago, with no added flavourings… I quite enjoyed it!

Is this going to be a more permanent addition once Alpine Punch goes away after the holidays? It would be great if it was, so I could still get my fix. I think I do like the lapacho base better over the rooibos, but there is an apple cider/punch feel to Alpine Punch that Amaretto doesn’t have. So I like both for the slight differences.

I hope it is… I like it quite a bit!! one day I’ll try it with some real Amaretto. mmmmmm

Ooooh! Nice! I like it and will likely get more.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
