This one courtesy of Doulton! Thank you!

Taken with a little half and half and sugar. Mmmmmm. Very delicious dessert tea. It reminds me of Torrone Italian candy. Almond extract, sweet. Another treat we only had at Christmas.

I had to add the candy to my wish list with tears in my eyes. So beautiful!

I love the tea even though it’s making me miss my grandparents something awful.

I love almonds and almond flavors so I came to this tea with a propensity to like it and I feel abundantly rewarded. There are many flavored teas that disappoint me because I just cannot pick up on the flavor. Perhaps the fault is in my tongue or my nose, or perhaps the teas are insipid and/or cheap.

SpecialTeas has done a bang-up job with this one. With a very small amount of sugar and milk, I have a sweet and creamy and very flavorful brew in which the almond flavor really “pops.” I’m about to order some more from SpecialTeas, which is my highest accolade. When I want to make sure that I am within a minute’s reach of a tea, I know that I like it.

If you like almond, you might want to try this. It’s the first really successful nut-flavored tea I’ve had.

Nice review! I’m looking on SpecialTea’s website right now and this tea is 75% off! I thought you might like to know since you seemed to enjoy it so much.

Doulton

Thank you, Erin! I know! I already got a pound of it. Maybe I should get more. I tried another almond tea today and was quite disappointed in comparison.

Hrm. I don’t have any milk at work, otherwise I’d try this with the splash. As it is, I’m underwhelmed. It’s just slightly almondy black tea. I was hoping for something a little more taste-bud-popping.

I added a little bit of milk to this and the almond flavor is greatly enhanced! Without milk, the taste is like a mild amaretto. But with milk, the almond turns wonderfully creamy! This is less sweet then Almond Cookie and non-bakery. It reminds me of those egg-white, Italian almond-puff like things. Like a bittersweet almond. The black tea base is mild and softly astringent.

This is actually pretty delicious. I’m glad I bought it at such a great deal! I may “splurge” on even more! I think this is a very good “everyday” flavored black tea.

This is perfect for when I’m gloomy and tired. I didn’t want anything complicated that I’d have to think about, just something simple and comforting. Drank, as usual, without any cup additions. Mildly sweet and maybe a little creamy with an almond extract, rather than roasted almond, flavor/scent.

LENA

I’m a big fan of the almond. Sounds like a good one.

Angrboda

I have a rather nice almond tea actually. So inspiring you are…

Is my batch stale? I just don’t know what to make of this blend after reading the other reviews here. I basically taste a bland black tea- maybe a faint trace of flavor, but nothing more. I’d save this for when I’m in the mood for plain black tea, I suppose. I just really like almond, so I was disappointed. I’ve tried adding vanilla almond milk to it, and it certainly didn’t help anything. I’m not easily impressed by flavored black teas, so …. yeah. The dogs weren’t impressed when I let them sniff it either, and they like tea ;)

Yeah, I got that one because of the fantastic reviews. Was also very disappointed. Glad to hear I am not crazy.

Kristin

Oh wait. I was thinking of the Almond Cookie one. I still had the same reaction though!

Lisbet

I would love to find an almond one that actually tastes good and almondy to me. Hmph.

zeitfliesst

I think they’re getting rid of the old batches. Maybe that’s why they’re on sale right now. Whatever the case, major dissapointment for me too. I’m looking forward to the Almond Cookie since many people seem to be rating it high.

Kristin

@Liz – I like teagschwendner’s Gina Amaretta. I’ll send you a sample of that one too.

Hmm…I was just taken by surprise by the smell of this cup. It almost felt like I had gone back to the days of kindergarten. Why? Well it smelt almost exactly like Play Doh!!! It’s not that I really remember the smell of Play Doh from almost 20 years ago(there goes my age) but it definitely did seem to have some correlation. The smell might not be so bad for some people, but for me; I just can’t get the idea of drinking clay out of my head! Anyways, the taste of the tea wasn’t as bad, the almond was there although it’s not a strong roasted almond taste. Very subtle. I tried this with some milk the second time and it definitely killed some of the scent, so I will have to experiment with less tea and more milk to entirely kill the scent. What an experience :S

Oh dear. I may have ordered a sample of this in my sample ordering frenzy (can’t now recall), but if it is playdoh-smelling… well just ugh. It is one of my least favorite smells, the only one from my childhood that is worse is the smell of comic book ink.

zeitfliesst

Comic book ink might come a close second in worst smells lol. The scent might be subjective though, so give it a try anyways if you did happen to order it.

I’m really not big on flavored teas, but I love almond so I figured I’d give this one a try. Definitely has a heavy almond extract/amaretto thing going, in a good way. Has a nice natural sweetness and creaminess. I’m really enjoying this cup a lot.
