I thought this might be another in the same vein as Brioche and Almond Biscotti, but after smelling the dry leaves I think it’s a different type of almond. It’s less pastry and more Amaretto.

I find it interesting that The Cultured Cup sells this under the Mariage Freres brand, but it’s not available at the Mariage Freres web site.

But I digress. The steeped tea also smells and tastes like Amaretto, but without the alcohol. The underlying tea blends pretty seamlessly into the almond, to the point where it’s not really discernible as a separate flavor. Admittedly, I have a cold so my taster may be a little off, but I don’t think I’m missing anything here.

It’s an interesting change from the usually pastry flavored almond teas. It’s the sort of thing I might consider having around even if I also had Brioche because they’re so different.

I am puzzled by the fact that it doesn’t appear on the Mariage Freres web site, though.

Anyone have any thoughts on that? Does Mariage Freres have different flavors that they sell to other outlets?

Brioche is particular. Accept no substitutes. This one sounds lovely, but only if I was not anticipating Brioche.

Agreed. I have been hoarding my last little bit of Brioche but one day soon I will have to let it go.

It does look like MF sell an almond flavored black tea on their website. Do you think this is the one you tried? https://www.mariagefreres.com/UK/2-amandes-T802.html

__Morgana__

It probably is! No idea why it didn’t come up on my search on their site. I tried both French and English.

Maybe they fiddle their products according to the market, like DTs does.

That is to say that some of their teas are available through the Canadian site and not through the American one.
