56 Tasting Notes
given to me by a dear friend, this tea is a lovely lemongrass variety with a good gingery flavour. steeping it 7 minutes is great, brings out the hint of orange in the flavour as well.
this tea is so great to soothe the stomach & appease troublesome sinuses. this time i added a bit of honey to ease a throat that’s a wee bit sore. it’s a go to comfort tea for sure.
gifted by a fellow tea lover. whilst i’m not big on fruity teas, this one has a lot of flavour. the cinnamon isn’t very cinnamony, but i love the idea of this combo.
tastes mostly like a standard black tea but its finish is more complex, a higher note, a bit sharp. perhaps fruity.
gifted to me by a friend. i steeped it for four minutes, added a brown sugar cube & a wee dollop of milk. it isn’t as strong as Irish Breakfast, but its flavour has more complexity than English Breakfast. there are some light finishing notes. do i detect the taste of whisky? could be my imagination. a delicious tea to savour & enjoy.
gifted to me by a kind friend who knows i like different varieties of tea, this tea is surprisingly delicious, uplifting with a hint of spice. mirabelle is apparently a small yellow plum. the tea comes from Poland. it’s probably one of the nicest, more complex fruit teas that i’ve ever had. i’d like to take this taste & wrap it in chocolate.
a kind friend gifted me a bunch of tea recently, including this one. i’m not big on herb/fruit teas, but this one is quite sunny & soothing. i debated adding sweetener, such as honey & i think next time i’ll do so. i brewed for 8 minutes & found the tea, as i tend to with fruit teas, a tad astringent. i can’t taste the ginger per se, but there’s a ginger effect, a bit of spice hitting the tongue. it’s a lively tea. perfect for an afternoon pick me up.
such a delicious tea. it’s silky. i put the leaves in a pot so that they could expand & steeped for 4 minutes for first cup. not sure if it is de rigueur to add milk & sugar, but i did so. i find it just enhances the flavour. delicious!
this is a personal blend made up of Maple Valley Tea World’s Ceylon & orange peels. it has a very subtle orange taste. the base could be stronger.
this is a very nice orange pekoe. they had the bag version in my grocery store. i don’t know what’s gotten into the buyer at my local grocery store. we have a lot of tea varieties of late. this one is tasty & flavourful when stepped at 4 minutes but don’t go overboard. 4m30seconds & it becomes a wee bit bitter. it loves milk & sugar. this is the tea that you offer to a friend in need of a shoulder & a good cry.
