From Simpson & Vail

Originally native to the Mediterranean, almonds are now domestically cultivated in many places around the globe. References to almonds can be found in the Old Testament, and, even after all these years, almonds still hold an important part in people’s diet. The almond aroma in this tea resembles the heady smell of almond extract.

When brewed the amaretto aroma and taste is reminiscent of marzipan. This Chinese green tea blend has a rich, sweet taste and an aromatic fragrance that will delight your senses! The light, delicate cup has a prominent amaretto aroma, however, the taste is light, delicious and not overpowering. For a treat add a little sweetener – it balances the cup and brings out a little more of the green tea taste.

Ingredients: Green tea, almond pieces and almond flavoring.

Brew tea at 180º – steep for 2 minutes.

This one was a sample from jessiwrites in my awesome package of samples and orders.

I’m honestly getting mostly green tea with a hint of almond. The scent of marzipan-almost almondness is pretty strong, but the taste is nearly as much. I’m not huge on either almonds or green tea, but I’m enjoying this cup.

Also, you guys! I’ve done two swaps with MirandaGou and she seems to have disappeared! I opened my inbox message with her and it’s only my messages to her – she has just vanished! I tried searching for her under “Explore” and nothing. What is happening?!

Stephanie

Weird about the missing person!

Courtney

I know! I suppose she could have deleted her account? It just seems bizarre, I was always chatting with her.

Steepster is acting weird today, I just added a bunch of new teas but I can’t find them when I do a search on them. I tried re-adding this one and it said it was already in the database. Hopefully the problems sort themselves out.

Anyway this is a standard Chinese green tea that smells kind of almondy and contains slivered almonds in the bag. I was hoping for something a bit more marzipan-y after tasting it, so I decided to add a pinch of stevia. That did help make it more dessert-like. The almond flavor seems natural and not overwhelming. It’s a nice every day afternoon tea, I think. Not too bad with almond milk, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. ;-)

Amy – my daughter, Superanna, is planning a future trip to San Francisco. Can you recommend some tea shops and other places for them to visit?

TeaBrat

Sure! What else are they interested in besides tea? Feel free to DM me.

I had that steepster thing happen to me before… the teas showed up the next day, so they should be up then.
