Substitutes for American Tea Room's Brioche and Limoncello?
Hello Steepsters, my giant bag of American Tea Room’s Limoncello finally is no more and I went online to replenish [and restock Brioche as well] only to find that American Tea Room is no more! What do I do? I have never found teas I like as much as those two. Suggestions for substitutions? Help please.
I don’t know of a substitute for Brioche, but if you find one let me know — I’m looking for one, too.
Hey tea blenders, can you make us one please?
I have not tried this but perhaps Simpson & Vail Almond Sugar Cookie?
I was going to suggest Simpson and Vail’s Almond Sugar Cookie! They might have one like Limoncello too.
This sounds promising — ingredients are pretty much the same if the “flavoring” in the S&V is cinnamon.
I’ve tried both S&V and ATR and they might not be exactly the same, but it’s probably the closest blend you’ll find if you can’t find some from the same source.
I find Almond Sugar Cookie to be much sweeter and, well, almondy than Brioche. I would classify it as a cousin if these were people we were talking about, but not a sibling.
ATR’s herbal base Brioche, I think it was called Brioche free, is exactly the same as Davids Teas Forever Nuts.
Thank you for these wonderful suggestions!
It’s a touch sweeter, but T2 Toasty Warm somehow makes me think of ATR’s Brioche.
I did a google search for the ingredients. Almond Biscotti came up and looks promising. If anyone buys it, please update and let us know how it compares!
Looks like they also have “Lemon Chiffon Rooibos” that appears to be the same as Lemoncello, from what I can tell. I’d guess they are both buying from the same supplier.
Good find. How is it I’ve never been on tea smith’s site before? Many of their blends sound delicious. It seems that Tealyra also carries some of these teas, since I notice the Tiramisu blend that Tealyra once had.
I don’t think I had seen Tea Smith before either! There were a few other companies that came up with the same tea, but Tea Smith had the most reasonable prices.
