This smells sweet, with a spiciness. I can make out the almond, marzipan scent.
Boiling/2 min – Also, I went with 3g/8 oz of water, even though I normally use 3g/6 oz. It smells very strong.
Now, once brewed, it smells very cookie-ish and sweet. Just like marzipan, actually. The taste confirms that this tea is indeed marzipan flavored, and quite well. How do I know? Because I detest marzipan! I bought this tea for my husband. So, I’m rating it according to how well I think the actual tea reflects what it is supposed to be, and the truth is that I hate this tea because it is exactly what it claims to be. My son loves this. My daughter just asked for more. My husband is happy, but wants it to be stronger. I want nothing more to do with it. So, I’d say it’s a success.
I think that this would make a very nice winter holiday tea. It’s spicy, tastes like marzipan and tea (actually, the black tea flavor – not flavoring – is very nice and is not bitter or overwhelming at all.)
