11 tasting notes

Picked this up at the Christkindlemarket in Chicago this past weekend. I generally stay away from gimmicky, flavored teas, but I am a big fan of almond flavored items and marzipan and since I wanted a tea for Christmas time, I decided to pick this up.

Opened the tin and the aroma screamed Christmas with accents of cinnamon, almond, and orange zest. Brewed a small pot for me and my wife following the recommendations on the package although I wasn’t dead on with the temperature. Slightly sweetened the tea with honey which I think helped accent the almond flavor.

A number of the reviews complain about the tea component of this drink, and I agree that there might have been better choices for a base for this tea, but overall, we really enjoyed it and expect that this will probably make it into regular rotation around the holidays.

Flavors: Almond, Bitter, Cinnamon, Citrus Zest, Orange Blossom
