I am not a fan of this tea. It has a weird cinnamon cookie flavor.

Travel the globe to faraway Scandinavia where we’ve found the creamiest of marzipans and added a scrumptious decadent mix of toasted roasted almonds from the West, nutty cinnamon and sweet saffron from the exotic East. This truly delicious dessert tea adds a pale blush of red rose petals taking you far away on a decadent black tea journey. CONTAINS NUTS
Full-bodied nutty infusion with cinnamon and rose undertones.

It appeals to me, because it has an incredibly light tea body. It’s not heavy in flavor since it is a white tea. There is also every slight citrus note that compliments the peppermint in the background.It is not bitter at all, there is even slight sweetness. The color is also amazing and appealing, it really is golden.
It’s been a while since I’ve had this tea and my opinion has changed, so I thought I’d re-log it. This is a really great black tea. I’m normally not a fan of black tea, but WOW is this basically perfect. The rose just does something wonderful to whatever black tea is in here. I had it with just a bit of rock sugar; it doesn’t need cream at all (unlike most black teas). It’s a shame that Teavana is discontinuing this.
(Sample from silentrequiem. Thanks!)
For the longest time I refused to try this tea because of the floral smell. I’m not a fan of flowerly things and this one smells like baby powder to me. Finally a friend came in and really wanted to try it, so I had a sip of his. It’s not bad! Definitely not my go to, but for something that I found the smell to be unpleasant for, it’s not terrible. I was pleasantly surprised.
I was looking for a replacement for their Rose Marzipan Delight, and this looked like the closest thing. I am a big fan of floral teas, especially rose, so I was hopeful. Amandine Rose is more cookie-like than it is rosy, but it’s still a delicious tea, especially as a dessert tea.
This tea is amazing with honey and cream (and indulge yourself- use actual cream, not milk). The flavors don’t overwhelm the base black tea, and the aroma is wonderful.
