’Here’s Hoping’ Teabox Round #4 – Tea #16

The black tea here is a little odd and also tastes a TINY bit like that cardboard flavored tea I don’t like (maybe that means it’s Ceylon?) but the almond sure helps. It tastes like marzipan! I think there is an almond flavoring here as well as the almond pieces. Not bad, even if the base isn’t my favorite.

The dry aroma was great. Lovely almond. I brewed it according to the directions on the baggie. 3-5 minutes, I chose 4 min. I found it rather astringent/bitter. The almond came through more in the aroma in the back of the mouth rather than in the taste. I see that other people recommend a 8 minute steep. I have enough for another cup so I’ll try it again.

I have a sample of this tea sitting next to me. It’s not on the plate for today, but definitely I’ll have to try it one day later this week.

Another sample from mj1851 :) I love this tea! I added a bit of sugar and some milk before tasting it, just because I couldn’t do straight black this morning, so the flavours may be a bit different straight, but I’ll make another tasting note when I have it black.

I don’t know if it actually contains amaretto flavouring, or if they used a super fruity base with a bit of a malt taste plus the almond flavour, but whatever it is, it works! This is really very good. I’m usually not the one to jump on a tea containing nuts, although I enjoy them but I would definitely buy some of this. I wonder if I cold steeped it and added lemon juice, would it taste like an amaretto sour? Probably not.

This tea has a delicious almond flavor and it smells even better than it tastes. I really am in love with it right now! The black tea base is also great. I drink it with a bit of milk to mellow out the almond flavor. It’s a great way to start the day. I think this brand is only sold in Minneapolis and not on the web at all. But for anyone in the area, it’s worth the trip to Coffee and Tea Ltd. They have a TON of flavored black teas. This is the first one I’ve tried from there and I was completely impressed.

Where are they located?

They have a location at 2730 W 43rd St in the Linden Hills neighborhood, right near Wild Rumpus Books for Young Readers (which is also amazing if you have kids or nieces or nephews or whatever!). They apparently have another location inside the Sears at the Mall of America, but I haven’t been to that one so I don’t know how big it is in comparison to their Linden Hills location.

Interesting! I might go to MOA next week

I tried their raspberry black tea today. It was also amazing!
