Get ready: your next grand romance is just a cup away.

I like this one a lot better the second time trying it. I actually got a really good amaretto flavour out of this steeping, but I must say… it’s very strange.
Amaretto and coke is my drink of choice. So, it’s kind of weird to be drinking it in a different form. Comparing this tea to the actual amaretto is… not quite the same.
This tea isn’t as sweet as the actual liqueur and isn’t as strong, but it is very nice.
I really am enjoying this tea the second time around a lot lot more.

I used 2 David’s Tea Scoops for my ~470 ml thermos.

Sweet and floral with smooth almond flavour coming through. The fruits give the tea a fuller flavour but it has an overall slightly dilute taste. Unpleasant artificial-type aftertaste that lingers.

For the second infusion the artificial aftertaste becomes muted and the tea develops a cherry flavour.

Very bitter flavour when cold-brewed. Highly unpleasant. Artificial after-taste- reminds me of the flavouring of the pastes used for teeth cleaning.

What is lapacho?

Wikipedia told me that it’s the inner bark of the Pink Ipe tree. I’ll tell you what else it is. Delicious.

I’m a fan of nutty things, and amaretto is a usual suspect for me in the liquor cabinet. So no surprise really, that I like this tea so much.

It’s spiky and exciting to look at, with an almond scent that’s almost too strong. Almost.
When brewed, it has a rusty brown liquor that’s pretty thin looking, but has a surprising amount of body to back it up.

I drank this one beside the fire at Emerald Lake Lodge while on our winter vacation. It was pretty idyllic, and I can see myself recapturing that moment with this tea for the rest of the year.

Oh. And just to put a damper on the whole “I love this lapacho tea” moment I’m having, Wikipedia also told me that “One should be careful, using the Lapacho internally. Don’t overdose Lapacho tea and don’t drink it longer than six weeks without break.”

Well. Fine then. I’ll take a break in six weeks when my bag runs out. Maybe. ;-)

More amaretto than alpine punch?

the dry leaves smell amazing, it’s enough to make you dizzy,mmmm i love amaretto

Steeping the smell is even stronger and the liqueur is a very light caramel color.

Time to taste: I taste toasted almonds sweet amaretto but not nearly as potent as the Alpine punch, if you like almonds but not a super strong flavor than this is for you.

Personally i’m glad i bought a tin of the Alpine punch because comparing the two it’s my favorite

Oh. My. Goodness.

The scent of this this tea is amazing. Strong, rich, the almond and fruity notes melding to create something reminiscent of cherry.

This comes through in the taste, though it was more subtle than I’d have liked it. I definitely want a longer steep and/or more tea in next time, and see how that changes the flavour. Still, especially with the scent, which blew me away both in the can and in the cup, and the lovely almondy notes, I can’t find much fault with this tea at all.

Not putting preparation details down because I was literally handed a full cup of this when I went into DAVIDsTEA today — an extra had been brewed and I was offered the results. I was down at in the dumps at the time, so this was the best pick-me-up I could’ve possibly ask for. While it didn’t affect the flavour at all, it certainly made the cup much more cheerful than I ever could have expected.

Yum. I really like this one :) I find it pretty intense all by itself! The flavor got even better once my cup got cooler. Very nice tea! Spot on amaretto in my opinion :)

My fiance bought me this tea for Christmas. The smell is very sweet, like marzipan but in the taste it is a mellow sweetness. With a little bit of agave added it tastes almost like a (almost) calorie free marzipan – a wonderful dessert tea. It would probably be even more like marzipan if I had used white sugar instead of agave. Before I added the agave the taste was very mild even though I had steeped the tea for the full 7 minutes. This is not a tea I would be able to drink every day or in the morning but as a dessert tea this is amazing! I am so glad my fiance chose to bring this tea home to me for Christmas!

Dry, this smells like pure marzipan-y goodness and conjures up memories of decorating a gingerbread sleigh with marzipan when I was a kid. Since my mom built the entire sleigh while I watched, it seemed only fair that I would roll the marzipan. Mmmmmmm. My brother thought it smelled like cherries. I get that a little. I told him he was crazy though, because he’s my brother and that’s my job.
I think I may have understeeped this a little. It was a bit weak. However! With milk and sugar it became almost impossibly decadent (milk in an herbal? gasp! but it just completes the thing so nicely). Delicious, pretty, fragrant…this is a keeper.

The smell of this tea alone is entirely enchanting to me. I love the scent of amaretto.

I find that this tea does not have much in the way of colour when it steeps and I often find that I steep it longer to accommodate this fact.
It works well with a touch of sweetener, though I often forget that I am allowed to sweeten my teas and tend to drink them straight. That being said, it’s also quite nice on its own.
Even with my extended steep time, I find that it still retains a nice light flavour.

I love almonds. I like them as snack and in drinks. I really like the aroma it gives out as well. This tea smells just what I wanted.

Unfortunately, the taste didn’t came out as good as expected. It is very….thin. Couldn’t taste much almond. Maybe it’s because I’m use to those instant almond drink before. I do agree with some says it can be used in cooking, or mixing with another drink. But for me, I like to drink my tea plain, and this one can’t meet my satisfaction.
