I’m having this tea again this morning. My wife and I are getting ready to go to the mall on a tea hunt. This is a very mild tea and I’m going to look for some more robust ones. I think I prefer this tea with Lapsang Souchond added. Its still a nice cup of tea.
429 Tasting Notes
Having my last cup, I’ll miss this tea. I am experimenting with blending tea trying to recreate this tea as close as I can.
Looks like I’m on a English Breakfast kick this week. This one is very mild and smooth and I like it a lot. It doesn’t have the harshness many EB’s have because of the cheap teas that they use. The tea has a very balanced taste with no smokiness that I can taste. Its reddish brown in color and has a very slight fruitiness. I wish I could tell which one but my espresso drinking in my youth have probably killed some of my taste buds. Overall I like the taste and will buy it again.
I’m a little lazy this afternoon so I’m drinking bagged tea. This is an ok tea by Darjeeling standards but nothing to write home about. The tea seemed a little bitter for some reason. Might be that I forgot to set my timer and had to guess. (oops) So, the water was boiling and the steep time was anybodies guess. This was my last bag and I don’t think I will restock, there are many other bagged teas I like much better.
This is one of my favorite bagged teas. I really enjoy drinking it as it is never bitter and its really a light black tea. A very smooth cup of tea.
I bought this to mix with Keemun, but it is excellent all by itself. Its very smoky but not overpowering like the twinings tea bags. I added 1/4 tsp of splenda and its a very comforting tea on a very cold day here in Maine. I love smoky tea and would not recommend this tea to anyway who is not so inclined.
I actually bought this as it was 100% Keemun to mix with my Lapsang Souchong. I decided to try it alone this morning. Its actually a very nice tea all alone. Its a very mild Keemun and easy to drink w/o sugar or milk. I can taste a very slight sweetness on my tongue as I sip. The kick I get reminds me of morning coffee and is very eye opening. A very enjoyable cup and I will drink more of this in the mornings.
This is a nice brew to have w/o sweetener or milk. Its a very mild black tea with out any astringency that I can find. This is a great afternoon tea.
This is a good smooth tasty tea, but I think it could use just a little more lapsang souchong in it. Thats just my tastes though, I like smoky tea. It is an enjoyable tea and I could drink it everyday.
I just love a good Earl Grey and this one is one of the better ones that I have had. Its smooth, slightly sweet, and tasty. It has just the right amount of bergamot and its really a pleasure to drink. I added 1/4 tsp of splenda and it brings out the bergamot.
This is a very nice tea for a tea bag. You can taste the ginger and cardamon. You can also smell it coming off the hot tea. I added about 1/4 tsp of splenda and this tea is very warming and satisfying. It is organic and very tasty.
I’m in love with this tea. I’ve had my can of Caravan about 2 weeks and its just about gone. I wish I knew how much of each tea was in this blend because I would try to blend it up myself. I do have an idea and I may try anyway. I just wish I could buy this tea from them w/o the other 2 teas. I’m looking at my empty cup and wishing it was full again. Is this like an addiction? “sigh”
I bought this tea at my health food store. The tea is in fine rolled pellets hence gunpowder. Its a very mild tea and I didn’t taste any smokiness which by the way I enjoy in tea. This tea was just bland to me. I have had Adagios gunpowder which I enjoyed because of the slight smoky flavor. The tea is organic but I really just did not enjoy this tea.
I really like this tea. Its lightly smoky because of the Lapsang Souchong in it. Its not a heavy tea. I can taste other tea in the blend but I’m not able to tell what it is. Its very similar to Caravan but not as strong. Its good, but I would prefer a little more smoke in it.
You can drink it w/o sugar or milk. I may buy some Lapsang Souchong and add it to the blend to see what I come up with.
This is my second cup of EG this morning. This EG is one of the more mellow and tasty that I have drank. The bergamot is not overpowering and the teas with it are quite good. My only wish would be that I could buy this tea and Caravan without the jasmine from Andrews and Dunham.
This is my standard go to tea I’m having this morning. I can taste the tea and the bergamot. Its easy and taste the same every time. Thats what I like about it. Just the perfect blend and I’m happy this morning. :)
This is the second time for me with this tea. The first time was so much jasmine that I decided to lower the steeping time to 2 minutes. The jasmine wasn’t so overpowering this time. I think I like this tea even better this way. Now I can even taste the tea and not just the jasmine.
This tea is so mild for me that I can’t really taste any of the notes that others have tasted. I guess its an ok tea, but it just doesn’t do it for me. The plus is that I only bought an ounce of it from my health foods store. So when its gone I don’t see me buying any more of it.
I like the way this tea feels on the tongue. Its slightly sweet and smoky. It reminds me of coffee in the morning. It smells of lapsong souchong, but doesn’t taste heavily of it. This tea is on its way to becoming my go to tea.
This is a very enjoyable tea. Its smooth and smoky and gets better every time I drink it. The tea smells great and I just enjoy smoky teas. It has a dark amber color and warms me all over when I drink it. As cold as it is here in Maine, I need this tea.
Jasmine, Jasmine, Jasmin… All I can say is wow. It hits you in the nose like a prize fighter.
The tea is clean and mellow and is stronger than any other jasmine tea I have tasted, and not in a bad way. You can smell the jasmine wafting off the tea. My wife could smell the tea sitting 5 feet away. This is not a tea I would drink everyday, but its a nice change of pace. I really enjoyed this tea and will drink again when in the mood.
This is a very good Earl Grey Tea. When you open the tin, the bergamot hits you on the nose. The taste is smooth and mellow with a little more bergamot than Twinings. I use about a 1/2 tsp raw cane sugar and it brings out the bergamot. Its a very tasty brew and I like it a lot. I drink EG tea every day and this one is one of the best I have had.
Ahhh smoky tea. This tea is very smooth and very tasty. Only a touch of lapsang souchong which is good for my tastes. This is really not a heavy tea. Its light on the tongue with a hint of sweetness. I could really learn to like this tea a lot.
I just had my first cup of this amazing tea. I love it. Its smoky, but not overly so. Its very smooth and not bitter at all. It doesn’t taste as heavy as it smells. You can smell and taste the lapsang souchong in this tea. It has to have Yunnan in it. I wish I knew the other teas in this blend. I used tsp and 1/2 with boiling water for 4 min. Later today I intend to go 5 min. I will rate this tea after I’ve had a few more cups. After a 5 min steep, I felt like I was just getting off my camel. It was just a little stronger but still smooth and smokey. All I can say is that this is a very good well thought out tea. Andrews and Dunham should sell this tea alone without the other 2 teas (which I haven’t tried yet) and in a larger size.
