Right of the bat, you get a deep smell of Amaretto, complimented by the nutty smell of almonds.
I steeped for 5 minutes, let it sit for 30 minutes, and than began to drink.
It was spicy sweet, and incredibly delicious.
“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...” Read full tasting note
“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...” Read full tasting note

Love at first sip

I saw this when it was first being introduced in stores (I checked online and saw no description of it) and bought it without even thinking because 1. I LOVE amaretto and 2. it smelled absolutely captivating.
I tried it as soon as I got home, following all the steeping instructions. The tea came out very weak and barely tasted like it smelled (you know what I mean?)
Anyway, because it smells so delicious in the bag, I’ve been steeping it every now and then when I feel like giving it another try.
I’ve tried steeping it with just hot milk. I’ve tried hot water, a bit of milk, and condensed milk. I’ve tried Just water. Tonight I tried hot water and a teaspoon of condensed milk.
Conclusion: 1.5 spoonfuls might not be enough OR I’m just not familiar with how lapacho bark should taste OR this tea just isn’t actually all that great.
I adore this tea. When my best friend got tired of me stealing hers, I finally bought a bag myself. This is a tea I offer to tea virgins, who’ve yet to experience the majesty of tea, and every one so far has loved it. The smell is intoxicating, warm and sweet, and the taste is very gentle. A go-to tea for me, undoubtedly, and one I fear running out of.
In general, the almond is not very strong, perfect for relaxing after a looooong day :) It tastes a bit like marzipan! Apparently there is orange in it hmmmmm I don’t taste it at all! This tea is delicate and smooth. I would say it is almost romantic? Haha yea, and the flowers, I love finding flowers in my tea!
I love this tea. Perhaps it’s my Italian-Canadian heritage, and my fond memories of almond flavoured goodies from childhood, but this tea is just delicious. It’s like drinking Armaretto, sans alcohol. It also reminds me quite a bit of Dr. Pepper, but in a good way.
If you like almond flavouring, this tea is definitely for you! As soon as you open the package, you’re blasted with a strong mix of almonds and cherries, with an amazing tang. You can taste it, too ;)
