I steeped this with not-quite-boiling water; I think it resulted in a weaker tea.
This tea reminded me of pu-erh, it had the same earthy aroma. I personally don’t like either tea, but someone else might

This was nice in that it had a beautifully light floral aroma, paired with a woody and slightly nutty undertone (like dark chocolate).
The tea is drying to the palette even with the addition of milk to mitigate, but it’s lovely all the same.

Flavors: Floral, Nutty, Wood

Trying to log from memory, when I had this tea about a year or two ago.
Nothing remarkable, but not unpleasant.
Reminded me of….bread. In a good but kind of weird way. Definitely something I’d have at breakfast.

I awoke in the middle of the night to review this tea, because I suddenly remembered that I’d forgotten to. That’s how much I liked it.
Straight off the bat, this is absolutely amazing tea. A resounding YES from the moment I tore the packet open. The roasted aroma is strong and incredibly rich, with very dark layers. If smells were sound, these are a lot of low-pitched notes, straying almost near bitter, but artfully keeping away from it. I’m impressed.
Especially delicious with a drop of milk to balance the strong taste while enhancing its richness.
Sadly I only had a teabag to sample. After my exams, I’m definitely going to stock my cupboard with this.

I was opposed to the peach flavoring at first – it reminded me of those jellies with artificial flavoring. Once I got past that, it was great, though. Strongly jasmine and peach in the aroma, and mostly just the jasmine and green tea in the flavor. Good stuff, I’d say.

I am pretty much addicted to this stuff now.
I have to admit that I didn’t like this tea at first. It was heavily perfumed and smelled very, very, sweet – I was taken aback. Add to this the fact that the label was in Japanese and I had no idea what I was supposed to be smelling or drinking. However, having shoved it to the back of my cupboard for a few months, I decided to pull it out and try again. There is much to be appreciated in this tea, though I have to guess at the make up of the blend. The aroma is complex, at first floral but underpinned by fruit. A very tropical scent. The tropical fruits come across more strongly in the taste of the tea itself, which balances the sweetness with the soft tannins of the base tea.

Flavors: Flowers, Mango

This is really lovely, as TWG always is. I like to consider this tea a ‘green tea’ version of the usual black chai masala. It’s spicy and yet tempered with a sophisticated sense of restraint that makes the blend smooth and not as punchy; I think its name is very apt. Great to wake up to if you don’t like teas that kick you between the teeth.

It’s not…. unpleasant. It definitely isn’t. That being said, it’s partly because the tea is so weak I can’t taste anything. I like the liquorice aftertaste, but other than that, it tastes like water. I think I’d enjoy it if I could taste it though.

Not quite as strong as i would like it, unfortunately. Still decent though, and doesn’t really oversteep so I can leave it in the cup/thermos.

I was actually hoping this would be a weaker version of M&S’ extra strong teabags because my system can’t take it. However this was pretty similar to their Gold blend, actually. It’s smooth, but just not my cup of tea (har..har… okay I’m sorry). I’ve had a friend tell me she liked it, but I personally prefer their extra strong teabags for the malty taste. I do wish they’d sell these in smaller packs, I had to give most of it away because I couldn’t possibly finish 80 bags.
