Beautiful blossom grown on a rocky hillside where olives and carob trees grow amongst the marcona almonds, beside deep, fragrant orange groves.

This is the flower of a nut tree - please do not drink it if you have a nut allergy.

Naturally caffeine free.

A Tea Lover’s Crown Jewel

I’ve always been a devotee if strong black teas, like a bold Darjeeling or breakfast tea. But when I first heard about this herbal tea carefully harvested from Spanish almond blossoms I was mysteriously intrigued and snatched some up. The moment the hot water met the leaves in my cup, the aroma of the steam that wafted up into my face was absolutely divine—sweet, floral, and herbaceous. I sipped the pale gold brew as it steeped, and each sip was better than the last. This tea has such a wonderful mouth feel and a complex delicate flavor. What a truly brilliant herbal tea. It’s taken me to the almond orchards of Spain in a single cup, and I don’t believe I’ll be coming home.

Rare Spanish Almond Blossom

Tasting Notes

When we first tasted these unique almond blossoms we were astounded. The taste is so sweet and honey-like it really is a little like drinking a soft, floral honey.  The flavour is deep and heady. Almonds and honey with a delicious note of globe artichoke.

Quantity

Use 5 flowers per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 100°C (212°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse these flowers at least three times.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

30p per cup based on 0.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.

Terroir

Unique Almonds

Terroir is crucial to all plants: the pH of the soil, rainfall, sunshine, flora and fauna and the biodiversity among all the factors that make an area unique - also affect the flavour of the plants that grow there.

Just as grapes can differ from field to field, region to region and country to country - so too do tea bushes and almond trees.
