…do mom’s make marzipan!?

I’m sort of confused by the marketing angle of this tea. Maybe it’s my own limited experience with European culture but I always thought marzipan was more of a store bought holiday treat versus something that was “homemade” seasonally? And I guess I’m really just assuming the seasonal part based on the visual of the tea, which is loaded up with snowflake and other frosty blue sprinkles? It seems weirdly hodge podged together, but I suppose this would be the T Kettle version of Alpine Punch!?

Anyway, weird marketing aside, this is a nice tea. It’s very straight forward sweet almond and rooibos – which isn’t anything new, but is also just a very tasty combination. I love that almost amaretto type of flavour paired with honeyed and naturally nutty rooibos. The two just compliment really well, and I think this is a great execution of that flavour profile. The thing is, you can find this profile from a ton of different companies – and even Alpine Punch slightly sets itself apart because of the addition of coconut, rose, and other spices. That said, if Alpine Punch has a bit too much going on for you, this feels pretty classic and I do appreciate a good, direct flavour concept when it’s well done.
