Smells like pastries/bread. Tastes like marzipan. The base is pretty weak, but I’m just here for the almond, so I don’t mind. No bitterness, but I also used a pretty low water temperature. I like this one.

So there’s not really a whole lot to say about this one.

It’s just a light black tea with almond extract or amaretto flavoring. Nothing special, there’s definitely no shortbread here in my opinion. A touch of bitterness at the end.

So this would be a good low-cost option for anyone who was looking for a plain amaretto black tea.

I received this tea as a sampler size from Beleave Teas as “Pistachio Almond,” but the blend was sourced from TeaSource. I took it to work today and had a nice sipdown.

The leaves have a very sweet marzipan aroma that reminds me of amaretto: there is a honey-like sweetness, the nuttiness of almonds, and just a slight hint of cherry. The tea steeps up dark with a very inviting sweet, marzipan scent. Though the tea smelled very sweet, it is surprisingly quite well balanced: the base is dark, full, and smooth, and the finish closes with a satisfying sweet, almond dessert flavor. It has a dessert tea appeal, but the black tea and nutty flavors hold up enough that the tea can pass for something heartier (a few extra strong, dark brews to get through the work day can attest to that!) As for the pistachio, it is a more subtle flavor, but noticeable enough if you are looking for it. Pistachios have never been my nut of choice, but here it blends well with the other flavors.

This is actually aptly named. I can taste some pistachio (and almond/marzipan), cream, butter, cookie, and the mouthfeel is malty. I’m really digging it.

Pistachio… shortbread? Double drool.

Just the idea is intoxicating.

I got this one in my swap with Inkling. Weirdly, it tastes a lot like DF’s Pecan Pie, which is one of the teas I sent her. Like that tea, it bears very little resemblance to its namesake but tastes quite strongly of marzipan. It’s fine, but, like with Pecan Pie, I was hoping it’d do what it says on the tin, and it really doesn’t. There’s a hint of pistachio at the end, and a certain richness and sweetness that I suppose could evoke shortbread. Decent, but not a standout.

Lol that almond just takes over everything it touches, doesn’t it?

This is a new blend that TeaSource came out with before Christmas and I just had to try it when I placed an order during their recent sale. Butiki’s Pistachio Ice Cream is one of my all-time favorite teas and I was eager to see how this one compared. As it turns out, there is no comparison! Despite the name, this tea doesn’t have much of a pistachio scent or flavor. Instead, there are strong almond notes, along with a rich, buttery scent that really does remind me of a shortbread cookie! Although it’s not at all what I expected (Spritz Cookie would have been a better name), this is a delicious dessert tea that I’m happy to have in my cupboard!
