drank Saffron Fusion Earl Grey by Taja Tea
765 tasting notes

I decided to make a pitcher of this one iced. I used the directions on the box. 3 tea bags in 4 cups boiling water, steep for 15 minutes, add ice. I used about 1 tray of ice cubes.

I love Earl Grey but have never actually made on iced. I often drink it cold though, as in it was in my cup for so long that is got cold. Which I don’t mind.

This iced tea is ok. There is a slight saffron taste, and very little bergamot taste as compared to when brewed hot. It is mostly a slightly sweet black tea taste. I did not add any sweetener to this one, but I could have. I think I may have put too much ice in it.

I love beragmot, so I am not in love with this one iced, but it is still good enough to drink.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
