drank Rose Marzipan by Nothing But Tea
23 tasting notes

This is my first foray into the world of flavoured teas. I wasn’t too sure when I read that it was made with “marzipan flavouring”, but it’s natural, and I do love marzipan, so I figured what the heck and bought a bag. It also helps that the price wasn’t too high, so I could justify the risk.

Just opening the bag you are hit with the smell of marzipan. I mean, it is strong. I brewed up a mug (it came out copper coloured, not super clear but still nice-looking) and again… marzipan. Marzipan everywhere. All the marzipan!

Then you take a sip and… yeah, it’s kind of marzipan-y. After all of the marzipan aroma I’d be expecting more on the taste, but still, it’s nice (if a little muted). The rose does come through though (possibly because I grabbed a big rosebud and added it to the infuser).

This is an interesting one. It’s a delight to drink because you get a whiff of that lovely aroma whenever you go in for a sip. The taste isn’t as strong as I had imagined it would be though. Perhaps next time I will add more or steep for longer (although I think I’m nearing the limit where bitterness would creep in if I altered any more variables too radically).

Ultimately I would recommend this tea if you like these flavours and want something different. It’s certainly an interesting one to be able to offer guests. I’ll be having a cup from time-to-time, but it won’t be an everyday cup, that’s for sure :)

I like tea.

Also, I make websites for a living. I’m lucky enough to work remotely for a lot of it so I drink massive quantities of loose leaf tea all day long.
