From DAVIDsTEA

Love at first sip

If you’re looking to set a romantic mood, look no further than this delicate almond-laced blend. It’s a sweet marzipan dream, made of almond slices, apricots, orange blossoms and rose petals, all in a base of lapacho bark. Never heard of lapacho? Sometimes called “the tea of the Inkas,” people of South American have been using it for ages to cure just about everything, including a lacklustre love life. Get ready: your next grand romance is just a cup away.

Ingredients: Lapacho, almond, apricot kernels, orange blossoms, rose blossoms and artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Tree nuts

Another one done! This tisane has a strong over the top almond taste and smell. It has a good variety of ingredients but it still seems like it needs more depth and dimension for my liking. This isn’t bad, and I’m glad I gave it a try, but it didn’t really suit my taste. I won’t be repurchasing this one – I’ll leave it for all you true almond lovers out there.

Amaretto indeed! This tastes like almond extract! I should use the liquid to make pancakes or something. I feel it would be better in baked goods than on its own. It’s a bit thin, yet intense at the same time. This may be better with some added chocolate. But who am I kidding? Everything is better with chocolate. I like this ok, but I can also do without it. Perhaps blending it with some other tea would be good. :)

Bonnie

I have yet to find an almond that does not taste fake! In my opinion only real almonds taste like almond…and nothing else will do. EXTRACTS ARE OUT! You end up with either bitter or a sour overdone blech. They should just give it up.

Mercuryhime

How do you feel about marzipan? I usually love almond flavor. But this one didn’t work for me too well.

Bonnie

You’re right! In baking I’ve used almond successfully with pastries. U got me there.

Mercuryhime

well, I wasn’t trying to “get” you, but I’m glad we agree. :)

Bonnie

It’s funny that you say this is better for baking cuz these over sweet tea’s I save to add as flavors to cake or cookie batter or muffins when I just can’t hack drinking it.

Mercuryhime

Before I was tea obsessed, I was baking and cooking obsessed, so the two interests often go hand in hand for me. Fortunately, this tea obsession won’t make me fat like my interest in cakes and cookies would.

Finally moved into my new place! But I’m coming down with a cold. It’s in the very early stage so my senses are still sharp enough to review this.

Ever since I was a young child, almond has been my favourite nut, so I just had to get this. The dry leaf smells like almond extract! The lapacho bark doesn’t seem to have any scent, or if it does, it has no chance against the almond. I would also like to point out that it’s genius to pair apricot kernels with almond to kick up that bitter almond flavour.

The taste is very bang on too. I haven’t had anything with amaretto in ever but this definitely conjures up memories of almond biscotti and Blueberry Tea (the cocktail). By far the most almondy tea I’ve ever tasted in my life. And the level of bitterness is perfect.

If you feel like a non-alcoholic drink that resembles alcohol, this could do the trick. I just wonder though, seeing that apricot kernels and lapacho bark can both be toxic if an excess amount is ingested, I wonder how much of this tea one could drink without noticing any side effects.

Hope it doesn’t turn into a full-blown cold. Luckily you have tea for comfort! :)

This sounds delicious!

Fjellrev

Thanks! I’m sure it will though. But better to get it over with now before class starts again. :)

Yeah, this tea was a positive surprise.

Went for my 20-week ultrasound on the 1st, everything looks good and… it’s a BOY! We’re refraining from telling anyone but a few select individuals (who can keep a secret) and, well, my fellow Steepsterites! I figure the chances of me seeing any of you in person or any of you telling anyone I know are pretty slim.

Since I’m feeling pretty good lately—the nausea is mostly gone, my stomach hasn’t spasmed in 4 days (knock on wood), and I can tolerate most teas again—I thought I’d celebrate with a big mug of Amaretto Latte. While the tea didn’t brew up quite as strong as I wanted, it does pair nicely with hot, frothy milk, which brings out its more marzipan-like qualities. Delicious. And baby boy must think so too because I can feel his little kicks…

A boy! Congrats!
Good to hear you’re feeling better.

DaisyChubb

whee congrats! How exciting!

Alphakitty

Congrats!

Faith

Thanks all! It’ll be interesting to see how my 22-month-old daughter reacts to the little guy come spring…

Indigobloom

Congratulations!! that is awesome!!!

alexandra1

HEY just wanted to let you know that if you’re pregnant you shouldn’t drink this tea because it has lapacho bark in it.

Kittenna

^^ Good catch, alexandra. I’ve read that as well, but didn’t even twig when I read this post.

Faith

I read that too, not that they really explain WHY pregnant women can’t drink it. But just to be safe I have retired the bag to the back of my cupboard…

Thank you Raritea for this tea try! The verdict is still out on this one since midway through enjoying my cup, my parents called to a) freak out about my impending trip to china that they’re worried about since OMG their only child is going to be so far away in a communist country on her own and AAAHHHHHH! (nevermind that it’s on business) and b) Show me all the tea that mom was awesome enough to pick up while she was in London @ selfridges…namely 3 different teas from Mariages Freres. Yep! I get to have Mariages Freres sometime in the future whenever i can meet up with my parents (they’re about 3 hours away from me).

But anyway this tea? It smells divine and seems to taste mighty swell…but i kind of drank it without paying attention to it lol

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?

revlisx

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 :)

Having a small cup of this before letting my roommate take it. I have too much tea. It’s horrible, so horrible.

Smells strongly of marzipan, as before, and the flavour is like almond extract, only less sweet. Not a bad tea, but not something I really want to drink.

Farewell, little pouch of tea!

Oh my goodness, yes please! This was an absolute delight iced yesterday while we were wandering around to celebrate my sister in law’s birthday. It was creamy and nutty and full of delicious goodness. Because it was purchased in-store, it was a little weak. I hate their method of brewing it “twice as strong” and then pouring it over ice. It always ends up weak for me. Yummers, though. Might have to try some here at home, letting it cool instead of icing it.

Kay Kanada

Better than Alpine Punch? In any way comparable?

aisling of tea

Hmmm…for me, Alpine Punch tastes like a cookie, whereas Amaretto tastes like a creamy liquor.

Kay Kanada

Which means that they serve completely different purposes, so it would be necessary for DT to keep Alpine Punch around permanently. Thanks ;)

I had this going to bed last night. Yummmmmy! This was ij my HUGE swap from Janelle. You definitely can taste that there is almond extract. But I love that flavor for some reason. One of my favorite relaxing drinks to make is almond steamed milk. Its just so soothing. This would be great with a lot of foam and some steamed soy. Thank you for this sample. I have about enough for one cupfull left. Then I’m ordering it from Davids along with brazillionaire. :D
