372 Tasting Notes
Purchased this tea at the airport. I think that it was brewed at too high of a temperature and is astringent. Otherwise, it seems that it would be quite good.
0.5 tbsp for 375 ml
Slight biterness. Punchy wheat-like flavour.
Thanks Indigobloom for sharing!
0.65 tbsp from 1 pre-prepared teabag for 188 ml of water
Good flavour combination. Thin mouth-feel. Peppermint flavour at the forefront with trailing mild cocoa flavour. Hint of lavender. I think the vanilla gives it a bit of a sweetness but the actual flavour is difficult to detect.
1.5 tbsp for 375 ml
Dilute-tasting. Good mix of spice. Slight medicinal tinge. Possibly too many different flavours in this one.
Very perfume-y in aroma and flavour. Black tea flavour is mild.
1.5 tbsp for 375 ml
Straw-like black tea taste in forefront. Strawberry and graham cracker flavours mingle at end the sip. A bit bitter at the end of the cup.
Thanks Sil for sharing with me!
0.5 tbsp for 200ml
Extremely mineral tasting- I felt like I was drinking a carbonated beverage. The strawberry is mild in flavour, more apparent in the aroma. The ginger is very faint. There is a baked-goods note; like a pastry on the roof of my mouth in the aftertaste. As the tea cools the strawberry flavour becomes a bit more punchy.
Thanks to Sil for letting me try some!
1 tbsp for 375 ml
Smokey hints. Light lemon flavour. Green tea flavour is oceanic-mineral. The cardamom flavour is not overly apparent. There may have been some flavour lost due to age.
I will not give this an official rating because I don’t really like lemon-green tea and because I’ve had this one around for so long. I received this in my 52teas 12 days of tea box last year.
1.25 tbso for 375 ml
Black tea base is smooth with a delightful straw-like note. Fruity notes are more present in the aroma than the flavour. There is a bit of a sweetness.
Thanks to Nina’s Paris for the sample!
1 tbsp for 262 ml
Light sugary plum-pear flavour. Well-balanced with the spinach taste of the green tea
