drank Apricot Amaretto by Tea Forte

Darn. Don’t taste sweet, apricot, or amaretto. What I taste it metallic, on the sides of my tongue. I’m pretty sure I followed the preparation recommendations. Now I’m wondering whether that’s the “off” almond flavor I’m getting.

It smells fruity. Going to wait and let it cool down a bit more. Maybe I’ll be able to raise my rating.

A little later: Nope. Mostly tastes like hot water now. At least the metallic taste is gone. Dumped in another bag and left it. Will update again shortly.

A little later still. Nope. I can taste the almond a bit — it doesn’t taste sweet like amaretto. I can’t taste anything else.

The box is very well constructed and nicely decorated.

Tea Forte’s flavors always sound so good but it seems like for the most part they’re kind of a bust.

Yeah, I kind of got that idea after scanning some of the “popular” listings for them. It’s interesting that the ratings on this one are so all over the place. I’m back to my Earl Grey binge again — nothing new, just enjoying what I have.
