Ok, can I say…YUM?
Firstly, it smells awesome and yummy, and that’s hard for me to say, because I usually dislike anything with rooibos. There is that certain unpleasantness…I think rooibos is a love it or hate it tea. I really only like it when it isn’t so bold, and takes a backseat in flavour…or basically if I can’t taste it. There are very few blends that I am ok with.
Anyhow, taste? I figure I should get to that. As Daisy says “Yes. Amaretto in tea form.”
I love amaretto. I LOVE AMARETTO!!
Funnily enough, when I first tasted the tea, I knew I liked it, but I couldn’t peg my finger on the taste or why I liked it until I reread the tastings here and saw the mention of amaretto and then I made the connection. I was like, “Aha! This is it! It’s all the almonds! That’s what I’m tasting!”
I am not sure I get the fruit punch flavour, but perhaps that comes out with a second steep? It doesn’t matter though, because I love the almond flavour, and that’s all I care about.
I think this is a tea I can get more of! It is something I will feel comfortable with drinking later in the evenings when I want something without caffeine.
I really didn’t think I’d like this tea, but I do!
