drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA
1291 tasting notes

When I saw this in the store, I could not resist!! I’m a sucker for amaretto… every time. and wow is it good! I only wish that it wasn’t herbal.
The sweet amaretto really pops(too much I think!), and the almonds peek out a bit too. Not much mind you, I do wish they were more present.
It made me sad that the earthy Lapacho taste was so hidden. I was so looking forward to that part. Oh well.
I think I under-leafed the cup. Next time, this just might blow my socks off! :)
—I wonder, can you do milk with Lapacho?

Are there whole almonds in the tea? That would make it realllly heavy :(

Indigobloom

not really, more slivers than whole pieces. The lapacho is super light so that helps to!

Faith

How does it compare to Alpine Punch?

Indigobloom

Hmm, Alpine Punch is ok… I enjoyed the sample I had but it didn’t blow me away. I’ve been meaning to buy a smidge to try it out “my way”- since they always mess it up in the store!

Amariel

I think I like this better than Alpine Punch, but there is a slight apple cider taste with AP along with the amaretto that I like too. I can’t decide. Wonder if adding some mate or pu-erh of vanilla oolong would be good to cocktail for a kick.

Indigobloom

oooh yes that might go over well!! let me know how it turns out if you go for it :)

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
