Finally got around to a new review today. My husband just got home and needs warming up and I have been waiting to try this for a while so it was a good excuse to pull it out the cupboard. :)

In appearance I can see a good amount of both rose petals and almond slices amongst the black leaves. It really does have a very real marzipan scent, it’s amazing! Sweet, nutty, floral and a little fruity. I say fruity as it reminds both me and my husband of cherries (which is a little odd but nice).

Once steeped the tea soup is brown in colour with a sweet rose aroma with an undertone of rich earth.

The first few sips reveal a fresh and sweet rose flavour that is also a little creamy and nutty. There is also a strong earthy malt black tea taste that adds a little sourness when mixed with the sweet floral tones. Reminds me of Keemun (not sure if it is) mixed with rose petals that always has a sweet and sour affair very similar to this blend but this one is sweeter.

It does have a marzipan taste but in a thick way…sort of like more towards marzipan and thick rich fruit cake which tones it down. It’s nice and very similar to quite a few Keemun and rose blends I have had before but I think the sweetness in this is delicious and it really stands out. It still has a cherry thing about it too.

This is my first foray into the world of flavoured teas. I wasn’t too sure when I read that it was made with “marzipan flavouring”, but it’s natural, and I do love marzipan, so I figured what the heck and bought a bag. It also helps that the price wasn’t too high, so I could justify the risk.

Just opening the bag you are hit with the smell of marzipan. I mean, it is strong. I brewed up a mug (it came out copper coloured, not super clear but still nice-looking) and again… marzipan. Marzipan everywhere. All the marzipan!

Then you take a sip and… yeah, it’s kind of marzipan-y. After all of the marzipan aroma I’d be expecting more on the taste, but still, it’s nice (if a little muted). The rose does come through though (possibly because I grabbed a big rosebud and added it to the infuser).

This is an interesting one. It’s a delight to drink because you get a whiff of that lovely aroma whenever you go in for a sip. The taste isn’t as strong as I had imagined it would be though. Perhaps next time I will add more or steep for longer (although I think I’m nearing the limit where bitterness would creep in if I altered any more variables too radically).

Ultimately I would recommend this tea if you like these flavours and want something different. It’s certainly an interesting one to be able to offer guests. I’ll be having a cup from time-to-time, but it won’t be an everyday cup, that’s for sure :)
