The sweetness in this is very artificial-tasting. It would be nice if there was a stronger black tea flavour.

Relatively mild chai flavouring which is balanced nicely with the green tea flavour. The green tea itself tastes rather bland with just a hint of deep vegetal flavour at the end of sip. I really like the warming cinnamon and ginger notes in here and they pair very nicely with the green tea.

Flavors: Cinnamon

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

A bit too astringent for my liking. I would probably try infusing for less time if I had the opportunity to drink this again in the future.

I can’t taste any flavouring in this one.

I will withhold my official rating for now as I have a cold and may not be able to taste properly at the moment.

Colds that knock out your sense of taste are the worst! Hope it’s over soon!

Black tea is smooth. Very perfume-y flavouring but not too overpowering of the black tea. Reminds me of fruit punch drink.

Bruntsfield is a small area near the city centre of Edinburgh, where I am currently living.

The flavour is smooth with just enough astringency to remind you that you’re drinking a breakfast tea. Nice malty flavour.

This tea is probably best infused at boiling. I remember this tea as being one of my early favourites from when I started drinking loose leaf tea. I love the combination of black tea and peppermint flavour. There is a medium mouthfeel and the black tea is mildly detectable. It is too bad that there are so many artificial flavours in there which muddy the tea and mint taste.

Cinnamon candy-sweet. There is a bit too much sweetness in this one for the use of rooibos which has a clashing savoury note. Good mouthfeel. This tisane feels like it would give the warmth and sweetness required after some time spent outdoors on a cold day.
