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

This was one of the last teas from the swap with Aimee Popovacki that I had yet to try. Once Jake gets home and I steep the cup I’ve prepared for him, this will be a sipdown as well.

And I’m kind of sad about that, as this smells amazing! I am a bit of an almond nut, and adore using almond extract in things like almond poppyseed cookies and scones and the like. Since I split the sample in half, I didn’t strictly follow the steeping guidelines and just kind of winged it. As such, while the aroma is heavenly the flavor is a little lighter than I would like, and it doesn’t have much staying power after the first wave of almond… it just kinds of dissipates on the tongue.

Should I get this one in the future, I think I’ll use a little more of the dry blend. But for now, that’s one less thing in my cupboard!

There are so many “never hads” about this tea. I’ve never had Amaretto. I’ve never had lapacho. I’ve never had a rose flavoured tea or beverage… etc.

I have had Alpine Punch, though, and this tastes and smells pretty similar! Both remind me of those instant angel food cakes. There are vague hints of creamy sweet marzipan, mostly coming from the nuttiness of the flavour. I don’t know almonds very well but the finish is distinctly full of them.

Hm, I don’t know how I feel about this one. I think I prefer Alpine Punch. Would Amaretto go well with real amaretto? Maybe iced, or as a latte? Altogether, not bad, but I’ll have to try some of the alcohol to see how this holds up.

Eating dry blend: The lapacho is rather bitter tasting. All the dry bits have this artificial sweet cherry taste to them. That same flavour is also noticeable mid-note when it has been steeped.

I tried this again, because I always give a tea at least 2 chances, but I just don’t like it. I am so surprised because I like amaretto and I love almonds??? wtf. Anyway, I just can’t handle it. I have to decrease the rating
The most troubling part is that I am not sure what the problem is :(

Erin

I find it tastes overtly artificial.

daydrm_believer

100% agree with you, especially the part about not knowing what the problem is. I want to love this tea so badly because it smells so amazing in the bag, but after steeped, it tastes…just…blah?

Tea to go for me, and free at that. The initial SA buggered off and passed me on to another person, who was very helpful, and she comped the tea for me.

It tastes lovely, but I can’t tell if there is much difference between this and Alpine Punch. I might need to pick up more of each and evaluate at home. Anyone know if lapacho is better for you than rooibos, or are they really just two peas from the same pod?

More later, but it was yummy and I enjoyed it.

Indigobloom

I think the main claim to fame for lapacho is its cancer and infection/parasite fighting ability. There are rumours about it, and even the cancer society reports potential benefits, or so I am told.
Otherwise I think it also has the standard antioxidant properties. (Also anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and so on)
I tried this a few years ago, with no added flavourings… I quite enjoyed it!

Amariel

Is this going to be a more permanent addition once Alpine Punch goes away after the holidays? It would be great if it was, so I could still get my fix. I think I do like the lapacho base better over the rooibos, but there is an apple cider/punch feel to Alpine Punch that Amaretto doesn’t have. So I like both for the slight differences.

Indigobloom

I hope it is… I like it quite a bit!! one day I’ll try it with some real Amaretto. mmmmmm

Amariel

Ooooh! Nice! I like it and will likely get more.

Is that a hint of cherry I smell? I don’t see it in the ingredients hmm.

This one is pretty delish, despite my initial skepticism. Excellent.

Another positive – I love when tea brews up clear with nothing floating round the top :)

Alright. I’ve never had Amaretto. And super-almond extract-laden things tend to be a little sickening to me. So I’m not really sure why I tried this! I suppose it was to try lapacho, though I now have another lapacho blend from Herbal Infusions.

That said, this wasn’t awful. But it was too potently sugary-almondy for me. I found myself drinking it quickly to get it down since it’s not bad enough to waste and not good enough to savour. It’s odd that I do like Alpine Punch, but so it goes.

this one was very good, I needed something without caffeine before bed and I picked this one out. Very almondy. smells amazing! I have never been to a davidstea, i just get some samples here and there. I wish you could just oder samples of the teas so i could try everything. well, time for bed rehearsal in the morning and a show at night…. but I will continue to keep trying as many teas as I can each day so I can have this box out to the next person as soon as possible :)

One word….AMAZING! The smell is divine, the taste is heaven. I can’t believe I am going to say this, but I think I like it better than Coffee!! If you do not have this tea…RUN NOW and get some!

Tried this in store and it was pretty good. I’m not sure if I would buy it though… would have to try it hot.

This tea smells SUPER over the top amaretto-y. It still holds a ton of that scent when brewed and the taste is pretty strong too. I’m not a fan of it plain, but it’s pretty yummy with a bit of sugar. I tried one cup with sugar and cream which was quite delicious as well. No other words to describe it except yup, amaretto! Unfortunately, this tea gives you all it’s got on the first steeping. The second steeping is just a shadow of it’s former self, which knocks it down a couple points in my book these days. The second steeping has a faint paper taste to it too. Oh, and word to the wise… those almonds mixed in with the tea are not for consumption. Imagine putting 1/4tsp of almond extract in your mouth and that is pretty much what they taste like. Very bitter!.

Aside from the unpleasant almond chewing experience and the fact that it is good for only one cup, I did enjoy it and will be buying it again.
