8 Tasting Notes
The mango is not dominant in the flavor of this tea. The spicy kick provided by the “chili” gets your attention. Nice black base. Not for everyone but this makes an interesting cup. I enjoy it iced.
My experience with Whittard teas (after receiving several as gifts) indicates that they sometimes take some getting used to but they are worth the effort. This one is no exception.
Strawberries and raspberries – that sounds good; currants – not a favorite but OK; good balck tea base – like that. But then there’s this juniper which seems strange in a tea (to me anyway). I’ve tried this straight on its own and with both sweetener and a little milk. I think I prefer it with sweetener and milk. Unusual mix but it works.
The aroma of the dry blend is lovely – primarily cinnamon with a hint of cardamon. The brewed tea is a deep golden brown with the aroma of cinnamon, cardamon and cloves. This is a solid chai choice to be enjoyed by any and all!
I am a big fan of this tea – a bold and robust Earl Grey! A little astringency but no bitterness at all. The citrus aspects of the bergamot are much stronger than the sour rind notes – works quite well with the black tea. Both the dry leaf and the brewed tea have a strong and delightful aroma. This is a very refreshing tea!
This is my favorite iced rooibos tea. It is delicious and my family loves it!
Smells wonderful! Very sweet flavor. A yummy tea – my favorite white tea.
Nice tea to have on hand. It is great cold brewed – very refreshing.
