32 Tasting Notes
It’s been over a year since I first started out with this tea. Since then I’ve tried various other Earl Greys, but this one tops the list. There’s something about the bergamot in this one that isn’t as sharp as the others. Finished my canister a while back, and I find myself missing it dearly. Saving up for a new one! This tea is going to be a permanent presence in my cupboard once I find the space for it!
The dry smell is extremely sweet, but once the leaves have been steeped it mellows out a little. Absolutely lovely though. Smells exactly like their strawberry jam.
This is great. Love how strong each bag is. Also love the flexibility of the steep time.
Ooookay I have cold steeped it and the tartness isn’t so sharp or strong this time. Still tastes like fruit-scented soap though
Very dark red color. The taste and smell remind me of fruit flavored chewing gum. The raspberry flavor is kind of artificial, and pretty sour. There seems to be a light minty feeling that lingers though. I like that.
I prefer Marks & Spencer’s raspberry white tea, I think ):
I haven’t tried cold-steeping this yet. I will review again when I do.
Well, it’s not as good as the Extra Strong Everyday Teabags. I liked the malty flavor in those. But I wanted to try the Gold Blend ones because my body reacted negatively to the strength of the Everyday Teabags.
Smells kind of odd, reminds me vaguely of cod liver oil capsules.
After steeping the taste is pleasant though. Mellow, smooth, and good with milk.
I have mixed feelings about rose. Sometimes I kind of like it, other times I hate it. I think I like it in this tea, the flavor isn’t too strong. Can’t really pick up on the vanilla notes, but oh well. Good with or without milk (:
This was actually not bad. Kinda reminds me of bread, for some reason. I think milk drowns out the black pepper.
I think the white tea somewhat dilutes the peppermint, and the two mix to give an aftertaste slightly reminiscent of toothpaste. It’s not a bad tea, but I’d rather have pure peppermint in my cup (:
