From Thunder Mountain Tea

A blend of Ceylon Black and a delicious Chinese Green, roasted almonds and almond flavoring. Just open the package and let the familiar fragrances sweep across you. Let your mind wander. The tea is delicious, such a wonderful blend. This tea can be steeped from 2 -4 minutes, if you can wait that long.

Another blend from the tea box! The flavor for this definitely gets better as it cools, and it’s best of all with sugar and milk. I like mixes of black and green tea since just black teas can sometimes be too strong for me. This tea has a pleasant almond flavor that’s not overwhelming. It’s really nice! But with how much sugar and milk I put in this one, any tea would taste nice…it was just a little bitter at first, so I decided to help it out.

Autumn Harvest! Decided to go with another nutty offering this morning. I got this tea from a Boise Farmer’s Market, and it is a black/green blend with roasted almonds and almond flavoring. The smell of the leaf at the booth had me sold! It reminds me a bit of amaretto, with those sweet honey and cherry notes, and has a sweet marzipan dessertiness to the aroma, but it has a bit more toasty and nutty depth to the scent than many almond teas I’ve found.

Since the tea is a blend of leaf that normally get such different brewing parameters, steeping took a bit of experimentation to get it the way I liked it. I use 190F water, the best happy medium I can get to not turn the green tea bitter while extracting as much flavor as possible from the black tea, and steep for 2-3 minutes depending on how dark I want my tea that morning — no longer, or the tea gets too astringent for my tastes.

The tea brews a very toasty brown color, and despite the leaf having the strongly sweet marzipan smell, it isn’t a syrupy-sweet cup. It actually has a more roasty nutty flavor, with a bit of a sweet or dessert-like finish that is slightly honey-like that surfaces right at the finish of the sip. The base of the tea has a very subtle earthy/vegetal quality that compliments the nuttiness really nicely, and the mouthfeel comes off somewhat thick or rich. I like the transition of the deep nuttiness to the sweet marzipan finish. It reminds me a bit of TeaSource’s Roasted Chestnut tea, as both are quite good in getting a nice savory almond nut quality to their flavor, except Roasted Chestnut has a more roasty profile overall to its nuttiness, and this one has a sweeter, more honeyed quality.

Yum!
