I love almond; I love oolong, so I ordered a sample of this from Adagio. It’s a smooth oolong that’s quite flavorful – however, I think it tastes a bit more like chocolate than almond. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing because this tea is still quite drinkable and delicious, but it is a bit of a letdown for an almond fanatic like me who wanted a tea that tasted like tasty tasty marzipan.
However, if I forget this is supposed to be almond, I quite enjoy this tea. I think this would mix quite well with Maraschino from American Tea Room. This tea is screaming for cherries.
