1 tea bag used

Extremely bitter and flat-tasting. I was given this tea bag as a part of “student welfare week” at my school so I’m not sure how fresh it is. It smelled fruity in the bag even though it tastes like a breakfast tea. I’m guessing that this may not be a representative of the actual flavour and I will withhold my rating.

drank Heartwarming by Yogi Tea
530 tasting notes

Used 1 teabag. Infused for 8 minutes.

There’s a savory aroma in the brewing tea that reminds me of the smell of horses.

I really like the savory mix of spices with the mint. It is balanced quite nicely.

drank Choco by Yogi Tea

1 teabag used. Infused for 8 minutes.

Creamy and chocolate-y. I would definitely try to infuse longer for a longer time in the future or use double tea bags to get a stronger flavour.

Brewing tea has a minty and creamy candy aroma.

Minty with a background hint of creaminess and pudding-like sweetness.

drank Christmas Tea by Twinings
530 tasting notes

Brewed tea has a strong warm apple cider aroma with clove spice. I can also detect a type of soft smoothness/creaminess that I think is coming from the black tea. Fruity notes in the brewed aroma.

3.5 minute infusion may have been a bit too long for this one. I’m sensitive to the bitterness here. I would also consider infusing at a lower temperature Seems to be a very nice mix of flavours. I would definitely give this one another try in the future.

Thanks to MissB for sharing a sample with me!

drank Cottage Night by T by Daniel

Aroma of dry leaf reminds me strongly of Forever Nuts (it probably is the same blend, as was pointed out by Kittenna). Baked goods sweetness. Walnut. Cinnamon warmth. Thin mouthfeel. Unpleasant sour aftertaste. This is a tisane which requires a strong concentration to get good flavour but the parts of it are quite heavy resulting in a relatively expensive brew. As I have seen in the past with Forever Nuts, this tisane would not likely do well with a re-infusion.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Sweet, Walnut

Boiling 7 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML
