The flavouring may be natural, but it smells and tastes artificial – maybe there’s just too much of it. The tea is also very sweet, considering it contains no sweetener.
I’ve had worse but I won’t buy this one again.

Nutty and nice
Our favourite part of the holiday season? The treats, of course. And those little almond-scented cookies have an extra-special place in our hearts. Buttery and sweet, with the nutty crunch of an almond on top, they’re a dangerously delicious part of any festive cookie spread. But with a nutty kiss of almond and an organic base of green tea, this sweet and subtle tea is our guilt-free version of the classic treat. Because indulging yourself should have no strings attached.
Ingredients: Green tea, almonds, marigold flowers, cornflower petals, natural almond flavouring

Ashmanra’s Sipdown Challenge | February 2023 | An afternoon tea
I’m drinking this tea in the afternoon, therefore it is an afternoon tea! Faultless logic! XD
This is one of those days that is not REALLY cold at all, but because it’s grey and damp, the mid-40s temperature just feels kind of nasty. I’ve been chilled all day long!
This was today’s afternoon green tea of choice. I’m enjoying it alongside some dried (unsweetened) mango slices, which I consider the food of the gods. It’s a pleasant pairing.
I stand by my comments and rating from last time!

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #150 overall / Tea #21 for April
Wednesday 04/14 — Sweet Almond Green by DavidsTea TINZILLA B***HES! This is the first green tea I ever fell madly in love with. Sadly I have so much of it now and it doesn’t have the same taste as it did in the past. I went to reach for this last weekend to make a cold-brew pitcher and I happened to have enough to finish the tinzilla! Most of my sipdowns are enough for a single cup so it’s always nice when I finish a bigger size of something. I guess I’ll need to keep working on this to get rid of it.. at this point it’s not like it’s bad or anything just a little stale/flat tasting.

I’d like to wish everyone on Steepster a belated happy new year. Let’s hope 2021 will bring better things. (After 2020, the bar is set pretty low.)
In honour of National Marzipan Day, I’m drinking this very old tea from 2016 or thereabouts. I steeped around 4 g of leaf in a 355 ml mug at 185F for 3.5, 5, and 8 minutes.
Surprisingly, the aroma of almond and amaretto is still pretty strong. The first steep has notes of almond, marzipan, cherry, and grass, though the tea is a little stale. These flavours persist in the second steep, with the green tea becoming more grassy and slightly astringent in the third.
This is a nice, if not memorable, tea that probably hasn’t been improved by sitting so long at the back of my cupboard. I enjoyed the amaretto and marzipan, but the green tea not so much. I’d give it a 65, but will hold off since it’s so old. Thanks, Mastress Alita, for the suggestion to revisit it.
Flavors: Alcohol, Almond, Astringent, Cherry, Grass, Marzipan, Nuts
17 is my lucky number, but apparently Plum Deluxe didn’t get the memo… since I had to toss out my advent tea for today, I had to dig through my stash to find something else to brew. Anyway, found this who-knows-how-old-it-is sampler packet and decided to go with it… came to me from Ost’s cupboard sale in summer of 2018, but who knows how old it was before it was passed onto me. Brewed the whole 5g to 500ml which is stronger than I usually do greens, but eh, it’s old and flavored and I want to clean it out of the cupboard so hopefully it’s fine…
I smell an amaretto sort of aroma coming from the cup… that mix of honey/almond/cherry with a slight bite to it, but is likely a marzipan flavoring (I usually read marzipan more as an amaretto in aroma/taste! But then, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten anything with marzipan…) And it tastes… pretty much just like amaretto/marzipan. I am getting a bit of a generic nutty note as well, and the green base tastes pretty stale at this point, which I’m not going to hold against it because of the age. It’s a little off-putting against the really sweet flavoring, but not so much that I won’t be able to finish the cup. And, ya know, still better than drinking a certain-ingredient-that-shall-not-be-named…

I didn’t think I would like this one, as I find most green teas to be quite bitter. I really enjoyed this one tho. For a green tea with medium caffeine (some days I like a higher caffeine content) I would try this one again. I really enjoyed it with a bit of milk.
Flavors: Almond, Nutty
I was plenty surprised when i opened the little baggy of tea from my David’s Tea advent calendar this morning. It smells so amazing! I thought for sure it would be over poweringly sweet, but it really isn’t! I only added 1 sugar cube and its absolutely perfect. Definitely one of my favorites
Flavors: Almond, Grass, Vanilla
This smells delightfully like marzipan. It tastes like it too, along with notes of grass and umami. I get two solid steeps out of the tea. It reminds me of Della Terra’s Almond Biscotti blend, although that one had a cookie note absent here and this one has a grassiness absent there. The almond candy flavor is a dead ringer though.
This is probably one of my favorite DavidsTea blends even though it’s not particularly unique. It’s just extremely solid and tasty, especially if you drink it before it cools.
Flavors: Grass, Marzipan, Umami
