The tangy, bright and perfectly balanced flavors of Ceylon black tea are a great canvas for many flavor expressions. The very best Ceylons blend easily with flavors giving them excellent depth and complexity. Take our Almond Black, for example. Touch of raw Almond aroma, plush mouthfeel reminiscent of creamy marzipan, with nutty sweetness upfront and a balanced, clean astringency. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      I just couldn’t find the almond in this one. Mixed with other teas was ok, but not one I’ll repurchase.

      Rather tasty tea. No bitter aftertaste and pairs well with honey

      I love almonds and amaretto and thought I would like this sample, but actually didn’t care for it. Others have so I may need to blend it with something else.

      I didn’t love this as much as the almond oolong. I found the almond flavor to be somewhat artificial and just too much.

      I'm not a huge fan of this one, and I love almond. It seems like it gets bitter really quickly, and there isn't much almond flavor to it. I still have some, so I may experiment with the steep time to see if that helps.

      Potently almond and reminiscent of marzipan or almond cookies

      The almond flavoring is very artificial and overpowering. Not my favorite

      I like to add it to other teas. Too strong of a flavor for me to do it on its own.
