A sample from ashleyelizabeth. I’ve had a couple of cups of this one over the last couple of days, primarily because I’m back at work and have reverted to rooibos or caffeine free blends in the evening again. I also wanted to compare with David’s Amaretto, as these are both almond/marzipan teas.
This one is mild in flavour. Even with plenty of leaf and a long brew time, it’s a very subtle nutty, almond-y flavour. There’s also a hint of apple, which is actually really nice. The almond is so delicate that it doesn’t overpower it, and it adds a nice additional element to the overall cup. It’s not fresh, crisp, sharp apple — more mushy baked apple like in a crumble.
This isn’t the tea to choose when you’re looking for a punch of flavour, but it’s a good choice for a light swirl of flavour. Like a snowflake on the tongue, maybe. If snowflakes tasted of almond and apple.
