25 Tasting Notes
A truly remarkable blend, by a truly unremarkable company. New English teas are not my favourites – the bergamot is too pronounced in the Earl Grey, the green tea is preposterously bitter and the hibiscus is just rubbish – but this is one is something to rave about. The tea is a kick, as any black, but it doesn’t feel like one. It’s so pleasant and delightful, the 25-bag box I bought shouldn’t last a week.
Eek. This tea is rubbish. It’s far too sweet – even if you don’t sweeten it – and it doesn’t taste good at all. I’m a fan of Celestial Seasonings teas, but this is one I will not be buying again. Perhaps it would suit the taste of a young child or sweet-toothed adult, but blimey, it tastes like being slapped in the face with a giant apple-infused sugar cube.
