4550 Tasting Notes
Good Morning Mr. Grey!
(yes its still morning here)
Today I must not have been paying too much attention to when I was measuring out the tea, because it’s quite strong. (Too sleepy when I prepped the teapot I suppose!)
Other than a somewhat stronger presence its still a nice way to wake up!
This is surprisingly good!
It has a bit of a spicy kick (ginger is strong in this blend) and it nearly mimics a chai tea – but not quite. I love the anise in this tisane… it tastes licorice-y and sweet.
I didn’t think I’d like this one at first, but, I’m really glad I decided to try it because it’s good!!!
Starting my day with this Earl Grey, today! (poetry!)
I want to thank Stephanie for so generously gifting me with the remainder of her tin of this outstanding Earl Grey. Thank you Stephanie!
Oh… delight! I do love this Earl Grey.
I think that I shall struggle with my splint today and finally finish the review of this tea that I started so long ago!
I am not crazy about hibiscus, and this blend has a bit more hibiscus than I’d like it to have. Some hibiscus in a herbal/fruit blend is good because it gives the tea a nice body, but, too much gives it a bit more tart than I care for.
So this is a bit more tart than I’d like it to be. that being said, it has a decent berry flavor.
Not one that I’d order again, but glad I had the opportunity to try it.
I am finishing up the last of a sample that I had of this tea. I visited their website and it doesn’t look like they sell this one any longer, and that’s a shame because it’s really good! Sweet and nutty – I am not getting a lot of that woodsy flavor from the rooibos nor am I getting that funky artificial sweetener aftertaste … just a really tasty nutty treat! The only thing that might make this tastier is chocolate!
I wish they were still carrying this – I would love trying it mixed with my favorite banana chocolate rooibos (52teas) and see how that tastes – I’m betting it would be too yum for words!
Nice! The flavor is sweet and very coconut!
There is a faint bitter note towards the end of the sip that rests in the back of the mouth. I’d rather it not be there, but it isn’t strong or off-putting, and otherwise, I’m really liking this tea.
Other than the faint bitterness, the black tea goes by pretty unnoticed in this blend as the coconut really dominates. The more I drink it the more I like it.
