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

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.

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.

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

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

So upfront I will admit that this sample is about a year old. There’s something about it that doesn’t quite work. The initial scent and taste is just like an almond cookie, but then the vegetal green tea is a jarring second note. There is nothing wrong with either flavor, but they just don’t blend together at all. I feel like there’s real potential here, but more tweaking is needed. I have cut back drastically on using additional sugar or sweeteners, but I suspect that might be helpful with this tea. I’d probably give it about a 60, but I won’t rate it officially since my sample is old and may not be representative.

Day 19 of the 2016 advent calendar! My boyfriend is a huge fan of this one but I never really drank it, probably because the smell was so strongly of artificial almond. I will say that it is a pretty tea to look at as well. After 9 months though, I have noticed that the smell of the almond has died down quite a bit (chances are it evaporated?). Sadly the tea smells a bit musty, but I’m going to brew it up anyways and see how it is.

Steeped, the tea is a nice light green tea color, and the aroma is much more almond-y than my sample of dry leaf which is a pleasant surprise. By itself, the tea isn’t really that sweet, but it does come off as a decent almond-y green tea. I did add a touch of sugar and it helped in my opinion, making this tea into a sweet and smooth treat.

Overall, I don’t know why this tea gets a bad rap. I thought the flavor was great and had no bitterness from the green tea base. I hope they bring it back this coming winter because I will buy more.
