Drank this tea gaiwan-style at the Pekoe Tea tea shop. The oolong and rose flavours were very nicely complimented with each other. I remember thinking that even if I was someone who didn’t like rose tea, I would still enjoy this one.

Citrus notes. Black tea not bitter and balanced well with the citrus. Flavouring tastes a tad dilute.

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
541 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.

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
541 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!
