10 Tasting Notes
This is the other green tea available at Aldi. I like it, and at $1.19 for a box of 20, that’s an achievement. Unlike the regular green tea, this one is a lot more sensitive to steep time. I would not recommend going past 1-2 minutes, the lemon peel tends to get a bit bitter beyond that point. High marks for value. If you’re looking for value, this is a good pick. I drink this at work daily.
I’m giving this tea full marks due to its value. It’s an Aldi tea, $1.19 for a box of 20. I’ve always been a loose tea fan, but I switched to bags for work, as it’s far more convenient. I tried several upscale bags, then picked up a pack of this stuff when I was at Aldi. It tastes just fine to me. I’ve tried other brands of bagged green tea, they all seem to taste the same. For $1.19, I’ll be drinking this for a while. It doesn’t seem to be vulnerable to overbrewing, either. It’s $1.19, if you’re curious, give it a shot.
This one’s a bit of an odd duck. Like others have mentioned, the spice is the star of the show here. I only get a small taste of apple, and it’s a bit …off. I’m actually giving it a decent score, because I’ve bought more than one box. It’s a bit different than you’d expect, it’s a bit peculiar, but in the end, I still seek out a cup every now and then. I guess it grows on you.
This tea really caught me off guard! I’ve had some pretty awful holiday-themed drinks, but they actually put some thought into this one! It’s incredibly complex, you get a little orange coming through, cinnamon, mint of course, but also vanilla and some other unique flavors that really make for a great wintery drink! You’ve got to try this one.
This has become one of my all time favorite hot drinks. I’d call it tea, but it really isn’t. It’s a cinnamon-spicy drink that has a lot of bite to it, and makes your house smell awesome as well. I don’t bother taking the tea bag out, by the time you get to the bottom, you can literally feel the hot tingle of cinnamon on your tongue. I know there are plenty that are too snobby for tea bags, especially inexpensive ones, but this is such a fun drink. It starts out sweet and spicy (this tea already tastes very sweet, I see no reason to add sweetener) and ends with a spicy punch. After drinking it in the morning, I can feel the spice all the way to work. I absolutely love it.
