Bigelow Fruit & Almond Herbal Tea Review
A delightful tea from Bigelow...at long last!
Summary : Who would've thought - a Almond Tea from Bigelow that I would actually like. But I did. And if you like almonds or amaretto, you'll like this tea too.
Review : I'm not a boozer, although from time to time I make a feeble attempt to become one. See, I hate beer. But...I have a weakness for mixed drinks. And top among my favorite mixed drinks are drinks with Amaretto in them, such as Amaretto and Seven, or Amaretto and Sour (the good sour, not the junk!). Indeed, the only thing that prevents me from becoming a "amaretto boozer" is my inability to afford to buy enough of the stuff.
And so I'm reduced to getting my amaretto fix in other ways. And one such way is, of course, through tea.
As such, I was quite pleased to open up a sampler box of Bigelow herbal teas to discover a "Fruit and Almond" tea. And since almonds = amaretto, I really got my hopes up!
Here is what Bigelow says about this tea : "If you like the taste of almond, you're going to love the tantalizingly delicious flavor of this herb tea. Lots of almond flavor combined with just the right amount of fruit, it's an almond lover's delight."
The tea contains the following ingredients : cinnamon, natural and artificial flavors(soy lecithin), orange peel, rose hips, roasted carob, hibiscus, roasted chicory root.
Well, I've been misled enough by Bigelow to not exactly trust their advertisements anymore. Yet, I was wrong...happily. The smell of tea out of the foil smelled exactly like what I hoped it would - almond/amaretto! With just a hint of other stuff thrown in.
And the taste was even more pleasing. This tea comes awfully close to tasting like a warm mixed drink that has amaretto in it. I know I've had a mixed drink that tasted almost exactly like this tea did, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it is.
But regardless, this tea is a rarity among Bigelow Teas - it's good. No false advertising here. The tea does indeed taste like Almond - and the taste is also pleasant. I was a bit worried that the "fruit" part of this tea might overwhelm the almond taste. But alas, my fears were misplaced. This tea is ulatimately an almond tea and anyone who likes almond or amaretto should enjoy this tea.
Recommendation : Absolutely. If you like almonds or amaretto, you should almost certainly enjoy this tea. Forget about the "fruit" part of the label - I couldn't taste any fruit at all. Which of course, is probably good - since I wanted the almond and amaretto taste!
