Finally moved into my new place! But I’m coming down with a cold. It’s in the very early stage so my senses are still sharp enough to review this.
Ever since I was a young child, almond has been my favourite nut, so I just had to get this. The dry leaf smells like almond extract! The lapacho bark doesn’t seem to have any scent, or if it does, it has no chance against the almond. I would also like to point out that it’s genius to pair apricot kernels with almond to kick up that bitter almond flavour.
The taste is very bang on too. I haven’t had anything with amaretto in ever but this definitely conjures up memories of almond biscotti and Blueberry Tea (the cocktail). By far the most almondy tea I’ve ever tasted in my life. And the level of bitterness is perfect.
If you feel like a non-alcoholic drink that resembles alcohol, this could do the trick. I just wonder though, seeing that apricot kernels and lapacho bark can both be toxic if an excess amount is ingested, I wonder how much of this tea one could drink without noticing any side effects.
