I was really hoping to find the next Teavana’s Almond Biscotti or Butiki’s Almond Indulgence or ATR’s Brioche in this cup and it’s just not happening. It smells hopeful when the tea is dry, but it’s not even close to the others when steeped. It has a nice malty flavor and I totally get the French cookie part. It’s sort of a buttery malt with a little almond mixed in at the end of the sip, but it’s bland. It’s okay if I’m not comparing it to long lost favorites, but it’s just okay. It doesn’t have anything that grabs me and makes me want more. I’ve tried steeping a few cups and keep coming to the same conclusion. To the reject pile it goes while my search for a new favorite almond black continues.

I love S&V’s Almond Sugar Cookie. :3

Hmm. I thought that almond tea won’t be hard to find. But I was wrong. This is only one I have found: https://tipsontea.com/products/almond-thai-tea

It looks like Adagio has an almond black tea, but I couldn’t say if it’s any good or not.

I got a bag of S&V’s Almond Sugar Cookie years ago and recall it not being as amazing as the other three favorite almond teas. I might have to give it another go anyways.
I’ve never heard of that brand, Martin! There are a ton of almond teas out there, but there is a certain flavor profile that I’m looking for. I can’t quite describe it, but it’s one of those things that I’ll know it when I taste it.
Adagio has a ton of almond fandom blends, so much so that I don’t know which might possibly be a match. Maybe I can hunt down reviews here and narrow it down.

I believe they are a sister company to Basilur. This one seems to be chai-like with some almond flavour. I never had it, so I can’t tell. But it seems they are quite cheap, so you can give them a try :)

“Brioche” was a catalog blend from Wallenhaupt (original name: Candied Almond) that is purchased wholesale by other, smaller teasellers. I’ve found it (exact ingredient match) under the name “Almond Biscotti” by The Tea Smith, as well as others. Search “Black Tea, almonds, cinnamon, safflower, flavoring” to find different tea shops offering it under varied names/sizes/price points.

You are the best tea sleuth ever! I just ordered it from Tea Smith since the price seemed good. HUGE thank you!

Dustin, we look forward to your reviews. Thank you, Mastress Alita.

This tea and I became instant besties yesterday. To the point where I’m contemplating an 8oz purchase of this tea. I know I know its sipdown 2021 but I’ve been looking for a black flavored tea that I could easily enjoy without worrying about the tea cooling and becoming bitter or accidentally oversteeping. This tea withstood it all yesterday and deliciously so. I literally almost took down an ounce of this tea yesterday (I was using the biggest teapot I own. Think it holds 40oz).

Bright pops of vanilla and almond totally make this tea taste very cookie like. I never really picked up on the orange notes but when they do show up, they will just add to this delicious ditty. Really delicious and simple but oh so good and comforting. By far the best tea I’ve tried from Friday Afternoon yet.

Looking forward to enjoying this tea on the long commutes coming our way with the kids going back to school next week. (We live about 30 minutes away from my kiddos’ schools).

Flavors: Almond, Cookie, Vanilla
