This is good!!
But startlingly similar to my Almond Rooibos. Not so much on the “marzipan”, unless it typically has degrees of almond in it? I really don’t know, but the stuff I’ve had was more cakey than pure almond candy. Anyhow, piping hot, I do get some of the orange but then I just burnt my tongue a little- not really worth the oh so fast burst of citrus… (though my mind immediately went to: nice! this is Kalahari meets marzipan! if only that had lasted!!! It was a brief moment of heaven) and besides, this is one of those flavours I’ve had trouble grasping lately. Even with orange lifesaver candies, all I get is sugary goodness.
Between this and my other almond tea I’m not sure which one is better. I’d have to try a side by side! I will say this though, the Orange Marzipan smells incredible steeped. Mmmmm.
Oh oh wait!! now that it’s cooled a little more now, I do believe there is a hint of orange in the aftertaste. I don’t normally get backhints with my rooibos, but I swear, sumthin is there :P
Note to self: next time, try this with a dash of milk!
