drank Amandine Rose by Teavana
7 tasting notes

I’ve been through a few Teavana incarnations of this tea-Rose Marzipan Delight anyone? Almond Biscotti? Overall, this is my least favorite version of it because I kind of find the rose a bit cloying this time round. It’s a very pretty tea and I do enjoy the almond flavor, which I think it is a bit more nutty and less almond this time-perhaps with the additional spices this brings these notes out? But for some reason I find the rose to be a bit unpalatable this time-kind of like I added rosewater to the tea. It doesn’t hit you over the head, but it’s hardly subtle either. I just don’t like the almond to rose ratio this time round and the other flavors (slight spices) don’t make up for it. I did find that with a longer steep the almond comes out more and the rose dies down but I think this will be the last time that I make an effort to buy this tea. Kind of wish I had saved the other versions to do a taste comparison.

I love all caffeine but mainly tea. I’m kind of a tea junkie and I’ll try anything, although I’m more likely to be found with a black tea, pu’erh or oolong than with anything herbal. I live in the US and enjoy traveling and picking up new teas. I’m not a tea snob-I still enjoy a cup of Constant Comment now and then!
