You ain’t seen the half of it TeaEqualsBliss. LOL :-)

TeaEqualsBliss

Well…it may be a few weeks – but if you are interested in another swap!? LOL Let me know!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

We will have to wait and see I am working on one now plus with the holidays I am sure things will get crazy. I am sure we can work it out for some time though. Just send me PM’s or E-Mail me a list of what you would like so I can keep a list going for you if that works.

This lost a few points. It tastes different today. The amaretto is too strong and lingers on the tongue uncomfortably long. I wonder what happened. Maybe I used too much tea or hit a very concentrated flavor spot. Whatever, it is it was way to overwhelming.

Well I’m normally not much for flavored black teas, particularly those with caffeine in them (which I try to avoid), but this smelled so good in the sample K sent that I just had to make it this morning, when the weather is making me groggier than usual. It’s absolutely delicious in the bag- not the usual rank artificial amaretto. Brewed, this actually makes a really satisfying cup of tea without the bitterness that black tea can impart. It’s important not to oversteep it, but correctly brewed it has a soothing mildness and nutty sweetness that I really like. It’s great with a little milk- unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my case. I dig this one- for a black tea ;) Nice and relaxing, despite the caffeine.

I’ve pretty much given up on flavored blacks. This is the only flavored black in my tea drawer (and I drink it infrequently because of the caffeine). It is getting pretty old (maybe a year) and yet it still smells & tastes that good.

I’ve had a love of Amaretto/Almond flavored black teas for as long as I can remember. It’s so hard to find a good one though. This TeaGschwender tea is really really good. The almond flavor is not overpowering, but is more of a background flavor enhancing the black tea. The black tea tastes like a ceylon. It can get a little bitter if you over brew it.

I had a happy accident happen to me: I accidentally knocked over my cup sitting on my bedside table and got this tea all over my carpet and the hard to reach areas between the bed frame and the baseboard moulding. So, areas that… let’s just say I should probably clean a little more regularly than I do.

Why was it a happy accident?

A) This tea smells amazing. It’s literally the best and now it’s over everything;
B) the mug also knocked over my lavender oil (that was on my bed table too?), which also smells amazing and pairs surprisingly well with amaretto;
C) there was still plenty of the delicious tea remaining in the cup; and
D) bedroom cleaning and de-cluttering occurred! Huzzah tea!

Now I want to try lavender paired with Amaretto!

CrowKettle

I’ve never tried the combo myself but am also curious now. A quick google search reveals some intriguing but untried cocktail, crepe, and dessert recipes

Leafhopper

That sounds like an interesting combo. Glad your tea-related accident was so productive. :)

Martin Bednář

Not sure if I should cry over the spilled tea, or laugh that you found positive notes on it!

Veronica

This is the most positive spilled tea note I’ve ever seen. Love it!

gmathis

Wanna come spill some tea all over my house? ;)

CrowKettle

Oh, gmathis, if I spilled tea at your or anyone’s house I’d die from embarrassment on the spot and the floorboards would swallow me up. Whether the spilled tea would be efficiently swallowed with me is a coin toss D:

Lexie Aleah

Love this!

The almond is more mild than I expected, but the black tea is rich enough that I decided to not mute it by adding milk. The almond has that sweet amaretto quality to it. I’m sure it was stronger when it was fresh, but even now, this one seems pretty high quality.

Sipdown no. 2 of 2021 (no. 622 total).

I did not really intend to sip this one down. I thought it was a different Tea Gschwedebalaboop tea that I had rated lower. So there was some confusion, but also I think I had almond on the brain from the Brioche substitute discussion.

I stand by my original assessment — not a substitute for Brioche. It’s not sweet enough, and not pastry enough for that. Though it is more of a pure almond flavor, which also has a place in the flavor pantheon. With age, it is less alcohol like and more just nut like.

Look at me, on a sipdown roll in 2021!

Tea Geschedebalalboop always makes me stop and think. I also now realize I spelled it incorrectly in the letter I sent to gmathis two hours ago!
