I thought for a moment that I’d started doing something wrong with these, after last week’s Candy Cane experience, but then I read a few of the other reviews and it turns out this one just doesn’t have a lot of flavour. It’s good to know I’m not the only one! This one got the usual SBT treatment (3 minutes in 1/4 litre of boiling water, topped up to 2 litres with cold water, and into the fridge overnight).
To taste, it’s lightly creamy, but I’m hardly getting any almond flavour at all – just the tiniest smidgen of nuttiness, and mostly in the aftertaste. The black tea base is smooth and refreshing, as always, so it’s pleasant to drink, but I was hoping for more flavour. Not loads – because almonds can be quite strong and overpowering and I’m not a huge marzipan fan, but a little more than I’m getting. Having said that, actual almond milk is a fairly mild thing, so maybe I’m being unfair. I’ll enjoy sipping on this one, nonetheless.
