8 Tasting Notes
A beautiful ceylon tea, with warm notes of honey. This tea is loose leaf however it is not full leaf by any stretch, more of a Pekoe honestly. But the taste reminds me of Sussex tea house gardens, with scones and other delights. I would rate this exceedingly high quality even with its grade.
Simply the best tea. The greatest of all of the teas … then with something extra.
My tea. I first had it 27 years ago. Damn I’m old.
But it takes me back to where I grew up sitting on my mums red velvet couch watching Star Trek while my parents played dungeons and dragons with their friends.
It isn’t a loose tea, it is a bag, it is Twinnings and it is comfort. It also helps me beat the Alliance when I play World of Warcraft and yes I called my character Cassis after this tea.
I grew up on this tea and it ruined me for almost any other bagged earl grey. The bergamot is strong with this one, do not think it can be twisted into a London Fog without a heavy dose of vanilla!
It is either this or Mighty Leaf in my house!
Perfect tea for a cold rainy morning before getting on the train. Unfortunately for this tea I now live in Southern California and don’t commute anymore, however when I need a good kick in the pants first thing it is quite tasty.
Make strong with lots of sugar and no milk. Delish!
This is a very interesting tea. I adore the Australian / New Zealand blends including their cheap tea bag version, however it is difficult to track down in the US. The version sold in the US as Breakfast Tea and not English Breakfast Tea.
My first experience with this tea was on Maui and I thought I had gone to heaven. Simply my favorite jasmine tea.
Not a fan. I found it distasteful in the extreme. Will not purchase again.
