My first steeping of this had to be done with microwaved water (1:30 minutes), so I’m sure it’s reducing the quality. I can taste a light hint of almond but the tea is really light. Going to try steeping longer…

I’ve been eating a lot of nuts lately (mostly pistachios and almonds), so I thought I’d break out my almond oolong sample as my first cup of the day. The dry leaves have a very strong smell. It smells like a concentrated almond extract more than typical roasted almonds that you would eat in a trail mix or something. The resulting tea is a bit perfume-y and has a strong almond extract taste. It also somehow reminds me of rooibos with a slightly medicinal/minty taste. This tea is a little confusing to me and did not turn out exactly as I had imagined.

I love almond-flavored things and I love oolong, so this was definitely a tea I wanted to try!

The leaves smell sweet, slightly almondy, but just kind of sweet in general.

Brewed, I smell that same sweet, slightly almond scent. But it’s not what I would consider almond to smell like. I’m probably thinking of almond extract, and this isn’t quite that.

The taste? Unfortunately, I can’t seem to taste anything over the apple I had a bit ago, so I will have to try this again some other time. :sigh:

Nice almond flavor, but perhaps it does mask the oolong a little too much.

This is a fairly tasty oolong base, but the almond flavour comes across as rather artificial…it’s not one I’m enjoying drinking, but since I’ve a seriously stuffy nose I’m not going to even try rating it.

I really just want to clear out my sinuses so that I can taste again…this is miserable.

I was excited to try this flavored oolong because in the past I’ve generally liked oolongs. Almond is one of my favorites. The aroma was terrific when I opened the bag. I followed the directions on the sample 212/3-5 min. Leaves have a good strong aroma after steeping. Tea a little bland after steeping. I was expecting a bit more flavor since the initial aroma was terrific. I added a little monk’s fruit sweetener but it didn’t bring it up to the level I had anticipated. I did a resteep and no improvement just weaker.

Maybe add some extra almonds when you steep it the next time to give it more of a nutty flavor?

Good idea! Which would be better raw or toasted, whole or sliced?

Nutty, but in an almost sweet way. Not my favorite nut-flavored tea, but still a nice cup.

Pretty unimpressive as a whole. It doesn’t taste bad, just very artificial. It smells the same as most scented almond bath products – fake.
