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.

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.
