Another great della terra tea. First almond tea I have had and agree with others it smells and tastes more like amaretto (which is similar anyway). This is likely due to the almond flavoring (almond extract?) that always gives this flavor. That said I really liked the tea as did my tea tasting buddy. Definitely recommend brewing time longer than the 2-3 minute stated on bag and to stick to 1.5 tsp/6-8 ounce. As others have said, this tea is good but lacks some in strength of flavor – but you can often compensate with combo of more tea/longer steep.
