    Overpowering Almond Flavor

    Though the description of this tea suggests a blend of primarily apricot and peach, I noticed little of the former flavor and almost none of the latter. The almond taste overpowers all of the fruits, resulting in tea with a flavor and fragrance very similar to almond extract.

    My friend enjoyed this tea

    My friend enjoyed this tea, but I was expecting a stronger apricot flavor.

    Don't love

    Not sure exactly why, but this tea is not a fave. Has a wonderful bouquet but the taste is not balanced-too strong of an amaretto flavor for me. And I love amaretto! So I'm disappointed

    If you love almond, get this one.

    I received a sample of this tea along with four other herbals that I will be reviewing this week. Since I had five of them, I decided to begin with the Apricot Amaretto. My first impression was that I really loved the smell. The aroma is sweet, and I could immediately pick out the apricot, peach and almond notes. The fruit dominated the dry leaves and I was pretty interested in how it would taste. I used my perfect tea maker to infuse it. I generally brew herbals around 208ish and the instructions on the back said to let it steep for 5 minutes. I loved out dark it got when it brewed, but the fruit smell began to fade as it steeped and the almondy flavors became much stronger. I let it cool to about 140 degrees and took my first sip. The almondy amaretto was very strong, so much so that it really overwhelmed and took over the apricot and peach notes that I’d smelled when I first opened the packet. I drank the cup with no sweetener, because I try not to sweeten a cup of a new tea when I first tried it. However, while it wasn’t a terrible tea, I was really hoping for that fruit that the title promised, leaving me a bit disappointed. Its tasty enough and would be interesting to try iced or sweetened, but I only had enough for the one cup. By the time I’d finished my first, I wasn’t interested in trying to re-steep it and see. I might pick up a small amount on my next tea order and try it again, but at the moment, I’m not that impressed. Still, a lovely almond flavor so if that is what you are hoping for, you’ll be satisfied.

    Sweet herbal flavor

    This is a mild herbal tea with an interesting flavor. Perfect for an afternoon tea break.

    Not bad

    This tea is not as flavorful as I expected. I find I like to blend it with another almond tea that I found at the local health food store. The apricot is nice and refreshing in this richer blend.

    Good as a hot tea. Sweet, doesn't need sugar. I can't wait to try this iced. I bet it will be fabulous.

    Interesting blend

    Again I haven't had time to use this tea, but I did have a sample of it from a box of tea I bought and liked it, so bought this canister.
