Tasting Notes

When we first tasted these unique almond blossoms, we were astounded. The spring pollen gives the flowers a delicious honey flavour and sweetness, combined with rich notes of almonds, and a soft, green note of buttery globe artichokes.

Quantity

Use 0.1 oz of blossom, (roughly six flowers) per 5.5 fl oz of water (0.5g per 150ml).

Temperature

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

41Β’ per cup based on 0.1 oz of leaf per 5.5 fl oz 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 biodiversity are among the factors that make an area unique - also affecting 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 do tea bushes and almond trees.
