drank Amaretti Cookie by Todd & Holland
96 tasting notes

I don’t know why, but Todd and Holland black teas leave my mouth feeling like the Sahara but I may have figured it out. Their steeping instructions call for boiling water and a steep time of 3-5 minutes. My other black teas (primarily Teavana) call for a shorter steep and slightly lower temperatures. I think next time I’ll try a lower temp and shorter steep.

Otherwise, this tastes pretty good, albeit a little bitter (probably overbrewed). The almond notes are subtle but they are there. A nice addition to my tea cabinet.

I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
