Almond Biscotti from Teavana

Scent in package: like warm almond cookies.
Ratio: 1 tsp. to 10oz water
Steeped: 5 min. @ boiling

The point of any flavored tea is really the flavoring more than the tea. But the tea has to be good quality as well, and this blend seems to handle the balance very nicely. The dry mix is very appealing, and would make a great gift in a clear container for a wedding or other fancy occasion.

The brew is robust, and slightly cloudy (due to the flavorings?). It’s slightly spicy and warm, with the taste of almond cookie dough, a hint of vanilla coming through. It’s okay straight up, but a little sugar really rounds out the flavors and makes it a wonderful dessert tea.

This is definitely a blend I’d recommend, and I’m considering buying more to have on hand for gifts throughout the summer.

  1. It definitely sounds yummy. Congrats on finding a great flavor tea! I agree that the quality of the tea should be up to snuff despite what flavoring is being offered. At the very minimum, it is what contributes to the taste of the tea, as a whole.
