drank Italian Almond by Dilmah
2 tasting notes

i’ve been mourning the loss of lipton “almond pleasure” tea for 15+ years now, and i am happy to say that i’ve found a decent replacement in dilmah’s “italian almond”. while i agree with other reviewers (both here and on amazon, where i ordered this tea) that the flavors of this tea are not complex, “almond pleasure” was definitely not complex either… so it doesn’t bother me very much.

after drinking it as-is the first few times, i had the idea of cutting the tea bag open and mixing the leaves with a heaping teaspoon of “coquelicot gourmand” from dammann freres. i think this will be my preferred combination from now on. the almond taste comes through quite delicately at the end of the sip, giving “coquelicot gourmand” a bit of an almond boost as it already has marzipan flavoring.

the tin smells heavenly when you open it. i wish i could purchase this tea in loose form rather than tea bags, but thats nothing a pair of scissors cant fix!
