25 Tasting Notes
Tastes the way freshly mown grass smells. No thanks. Glad this was a free sample.
I can definitely taste the citrus more strongly in this than in its black counterpart. The green tea seems to add a smokiness that was not present in the black version, either. Red fruits are less present, but the caramel is here in force. An enjoyable cup.
Almonds, vanilla and spices. Does what it says on the tin, but the tea manages to overpower the added flavours, and also taste somehow weak. It does not evoke a sense or the spirit of Christmas to me, so I think I prefer the French name. I swear I taste rooibos in this.
Love it. While I can’t taste much Sencha (or tea at all, really) in it, it definitely has a strong flavour that borders on sweet without crossing the dessert line. Smells as good as it tastes. I’ll definitely purchase this again.
It claims to be “Earl Grey with citrus fruits and flower petals”. It tastes like an oddly spiced soup with lemon. Not at all like tea. I’m almost getting a hint of mushroom… an oddly savoury beverage. Not really my bag.
Tastes like a warm candied (caramel) apple, minus the sugar. I quite enjoy it, though it doesn’t feel like I’m drinking tea.
It’s chai. Most reviews and such I saw online said it was radically different than a run-of-the-mill chai, but it simply isn’t. It tastes about on par with chais I can get far cheaper, so I shan’t be purchasing it again.
Not terrible, not even bad. Just uneventful. I expected more, but perhaps that’s due to reading up on it before trying it.
A weak Earl Grey, with lemon and other citrus. Move along. Nothing to see here. Probably a fine cuppa for those who want more of a citrus note to their Earl Grey, but I’m all about big, bold, boastful bergamot.
Spices. Nuttiness. Warmth. Autumn in a glass. I love this tea, especially when it’s cold outside. I couldn’t see myself enjoying it in a warmer climate or during the summer. It tastes like sitting by a fire.
Very mellow, the taste lulls me to sleep so I often drink it in the evening. The smell of the unsteeped tea is reminiscent of Ribena crossed with a pharmacy’s perfume aisle, but as soon as the leaves are removed the scent mellows out, and matches the taste.
