From Teavana

A black tea with the scrumptious “cookie-like” flavor of almonds and cinnamon bits, especially tempting sweetened with rock cane sugar and a splash of milk.

How to Prepare
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 195-205 degrees and steep tea for 2-3 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ingredients:
Black tea, almond pieces, cinnamon pieces, and safflower blossoms.

So glad this tea wasn’t discontinued to make room for their new blends!!! If they got rid of Almond Biscotti I don’t know what I’d do (… I would probably spend a small fortune stockpiling the stuff.)

Today I decided to try something new! I love this tea on its own, it is nutty, fragrant, sweet, and hearty. I added a bit of cream, a drop of vanilla extract, a touch of meadowfoam honey, and stirred. Holy cow. It paired perfectly with the batch of Italian wedding cookies we had sitting on our counter! Mixing it with cream made this blend utterly decadent!

One of my favorite teas from Teavana. It’s yummy smelling and tasting. A little bit of sugar is great but vanilla creamer is also great. So many ways to prepare. I’ve been drinking this tea for a good while now and had not noticed the cinnamon notes in the tea. I guess I just accepted the almond and moved on.

The second brew, though a little weaker is still pretty good.

I put in a little more than one teaspoon per water, just for that second brew.

I bought this tea thinking it would be AWESOME with Matevana. Like it would be a chocolate almond biscotti. I’m not a fan of chais or teas with spices so knowing this I still bought this tea even though it has cinnamon in it. The tea is good just not something I particularly like.

Did you try this one by itself or only in combination with Matevana? I only ask because I initially mixed the two and it was okay, but I thought Almond Biscotti was much better by itself.

i have not tired it on it’s own. I will tomorrow but have found I just am not a fan of cinnamon in tea or chai teas.

Cinnamon can definitely overpower everything in a tea, but if I remember correctly (and I may be wrong, it has been quite a while since I have been out of this tea) there wasn’t a strong cinnamon taste to it. So I hope you like it, it was one of the first teas I was really crazy about.

Soooo good. I added sugar and a bit of almond milk. At first sip I was immediately taken in. Yummy! Thanks darby!!!

I made a pot of this for me and a friend who was with me for breakfast. We had pancakes and scrambled eggs with it, and it was thoroughly satisfying. :)
I really think this tea is a fantastic tea, but… it is rather easy to oversteep it. And this tea oversteeped is not fun to drink, because it gets VERY bitter. But if you do it just right, with a little milk to bring out the “biscotti” flavor, it’s quite pleasant to sit and sip. _

I was nervous when I got this because it had the exact same ingredients as the Amaretti Cookie I got from Todd and Holland. The Amaretti cookie has been sitting in my cabinet because there’s something off about it – some flavor that just doesn’t sit well with me. It’s ok if I blend it with some Matevana, but I just didn’t like it on it’s own. So when I got this I thought I had a larger bag of iffy tea. Goody, love spending my money on tea I don’t like.

But upon closer inspection (and some side by side sniff tests) I noticed that the Teavana blend smelled a little different. That off smell wasn’t there. It still made me nervous which is why I put off trying it for a while. I didn’t want to make it for work and then have to endure icky tea all day while enduring icky work. But my spidey sniffer was right on. Whatever was wrong with Amaretti Cookie is right here and oh, so yummy. Glad I bought this!

This tastes and smells exactly like the cinnamon glazed almonds that they sell at the state fair. Sooo yummy. The cinnamon tastes like the cinnamon in baked goods, not the typical cinnamon candy flavor found in most teas. I really can’t taste the tea in this blend at all. It is a little on the weak side, so I will use more leaf next time. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.

I’m pretty picky about flavored teas, but this one is pretty good. The base tea isn’t terribly interesting (probably a Ceylon tea, which I’m never fond of), but such is the reality of many flavored teas. I drink this straight, no milk or sugar, and enjoy it for the sweet almond cookie flavor (which is light, but rather tasty).

Almond flavoured teas can be so good!

I’m not a big fan at all of coffee named after food. Typically it is too bitter and over flavored and the coffee isn’t as noticeable. So, I was a little leery at trying a tea named after a food. Was I surprised. It is flavorful, aromatic, very satisfying. I am hooked. I still won’t drink coffee with the same name though :-)
