From DAVIDsTEA

Nutty and nice

Our favourite part of the holiday season? The treats, of course. And those little almond-scented cookies have an extra-special place in our hearts. Buttery and sweet, with the nutty crunch of an almond on top, they’re a dangerously delicious part of any festive cookie spread. But with a nutty kiss of almond and an organic base of green tea, this sweet and subtle tea is our guilt-free version of the classic treat. Because indulging yourself should have no strings attached.

Ingredients: Green tea, almonds, marigold flowers, cornflower petals, natural almond flavouring

Price per 50g: $8.98

I’d like to wish everyone on Steepster a belated happy new year. Let’s hope 2021 will bring better things. (After 2020, the bar is set pretty low.)

In honour of National Marzipan Day, I’m drinking this very old tea from 2016 or thereabouts. I steeped around 4 g of leaf in a 355 ml mug at 185F for 3.5, 5, and 8 minutes.

Surprisingly, the aroma of almond and amaretto is still pretty strong. The first steep has notes of almond, marzipan, cherry, and grass, though the tea is a little stale. These flavours persist in the second steep, with the green tea becoming more grassy and slightly astringent in the third.

This is a nice, if not memorable, tea that probably hasn’t been improved by sitting so long at the back of my cupboard. I enjoyed the amaretto and marzipan, but the green tea not so much. I’d give it a 65, but will hold off since it’s so old. Thanks, Mastress Alita, for the suggestion to revisit it.

Happy 2021 to you, Leafhopper. :)

I had an old sampler packet of this tea that I finally drank during advent season (to replace a banana tea that came in my advent — that’s the only flavor I can’t do) and felt much the same; fairly certain the green leaf in mine was also stale!

Leafhopper

Mastress Alita, that’s totally my fault for keeping it so long. Too bad I have most of a tin of it left.

17 is my lucky number, but apparently Plum Deluxe didn’t get the memo… since I had to toss out my advent tea for today, I had to dig through my stash to find something else to brew. Anyway, found this who-knows-how-old-it-is sampler packet and decided to go with it… came to me from Ost’s cupboard sale in summer of 2018, but who knows how old it was before it was passed onto me. Brewed the whole 5g to 500ml which is stronger than I usually do greens, but eh, it’s old and flavored and I want to clean it out of the cupboard so hopefully it’s fine…

I smell an amaretto sort of aroma coming from the cup… that mix of honey/almond/cherry with a slight bite to it, but is likely a marzipan flavoring (I usually read marzipan more as an amaretto in aroma/taste! But then, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten anything with marzipan…) And it tastes… pretty much just like amaretto/marzipan. I am getting a bit of a generic nutty note as well, and the green base tastes pretty stale at this point, which I’m not going to hold against it because of the age. It’s a little off-putting against the really sweet flavoring, but not so much that I won’t be able to finish the cup. And, ya know, still better than drinking a certain-ingredient-that-shall-not-be-named…

Organic version: Not quite cherry/almondy enough. Not very “green” though, so that’s a plus.

I didn’t think I would like this one, as I find most green teas to be quite bitter. I really enjoyed this one tho. For a green tea with medium caffeine (some days I like a higher caffeine content) I would try this one again. I really enjoyed it with a bit of milk.

I was plenty surprised when i opened the little baggy of tea from my David’s Tea advent calendar this morning. It smells so amazing! I thought for sure it would be over poweringly sweet, but it really isn’t! I only added 1 sugar cube and its absolutely perfect. Definitely one of my favorites

This smells delightfully like marzipan. It tastes like it too, along with notes of grass and umami. I get two solid steeps out of the tea. It reminds me of Della Terra’s Almond Biscotti blend, although that one had a cookie note absent here and this one has a grassiness absent there. The almond candy flavor is a dead ringer though.

This is probably one of my favorite DavidsTea blends even though it’s not particularly unique. It’s just extremely solid and tasty, especially if you drink it before it cools.

Flavors: Grass, Marzipan, Umami

Almond is my absolute favorite, so I was pretty excited to try this tea. I really think it would have been better as a white or oolong tea. The green just does not go well with the almond. The almond smell is very strong, and the flavor is too. It’s like an almond dessert. It’s good. I just would’ve preferred a different base.

I really enjoy this tea but starts to get too repetitive after a while and for me it ended up as something hard to drink anymore. This is a problem for me because I drink too much tea, so I find very strong teas are not a fit for me. However, I strongly recommend!

Marzipan. Green tea and marzipan. Definitely not for me. Honestly, I have no clue why I bought it because it even smells strongly of marzipan which I just don’t love. This is going into the swap box…or the Sil bag unless she objects :P.

Lexie Aleah

Maybe it was really marked down?

VariaTEA

Nah. I probably just said to give me 10 g of the whole collection and didn’t pay attention

Sil

nope. i dislike marzipan…

Smells really good. Not my favorite green tea for drinking unfortunately.
