1027 Tasting Notes
This is so tasty. I really like it hot (which is how I’m currently drinking it), but I think my favorite way to have this is iced. When this tea is cold all of the fruit flavors really pop, and the bergamot has a slightly stronger note. Since I’m an Earl Grey fan this is a win in my book.
Some mornings I spend far too long looking over my tea stash and deciding what to put in my cup. Other mornings I know exactly what I want, and the only thing between me and happiness is a boiling kettle. This was one of those ‘other’ mornings. I wanted the Queen Catherine now. It’s such a tried and true favorite with its lovely malt, cocoa and hay notes. Plus I get that wonderful smokiness right at the end of the sip. Love, love, love.
Tea of the morning. I have really been enjoying this tea lately. In fact, I’ve been enjoying it so much that my bag is almost empty. There are notes of chocolate, stone fruit, bread, caramel, and honey. There’s a light floral note as well that becomes more apparent as the tea cools. Really, really nice for a Saturday when it’s after noon and I’m still in my pj’s. :)
This tea was a HUGE hit at the tea party I hosted on Saturday. Several of the older ladies commented on it, as did one of the five year old girls. She called it, “the bestest”. A few minutes ago one of my closest friends texted asking for the name of the company that sells this, so I’d definitely serve this at future parties.
After my friend’s text I decided to make a cup of this for myself. It really is a nice twist on Earl Grey. I still think it has a lemon pudding flavor to it, but the bergamot is still there. Yum.
Since I still have over 200g of this I think I’ll tell my friend she can have half the bag. Even though I love it, and I’ll definitely drink it, there’s no way I’m going to get through all of this tea before it starts to lose its lovely flavor.
Tea of the morning. I actually also drank this tea yesterday while I hosted a tea party for twenty-five ladies. It was a lot of fun, and everyone really enjoyed learning about new teas. There’s already talk of having a garden party this summer which I think would be lovely.
Back to the tea, this is such a staple in my life now. It has delicious notes of chocolate, fruit, and bread. It’s sturdy enough for me to reach for it in the morning, but it’s lovely enough to make me stop what I’m doing and enjoy a quite moment with a really nice tea.
Yep, I’m a fan.
I don’t know what it is about this tea, but I am loving it right now. It has a nice passion fruit flavor and a fair amount of red berry flavor as well. Raspberry seems to be the berry note I pick out most often, but there’s a nice strawberry note, too. The base tea isn’t my favorite as it’s slightly on the astringent side, but other than that it’s really nice.
Maybe it’s because this tea is so summery, or maybe it’s because it’s some tasty stuff, but I’ve been drinking this pretty much everyday this month. This is easily my February favorite.
I finished this off yesterday… maybe the day before… at any rate, it was really nice. There was a nice balance between the pear and the cinnamon, and the base tea had a nice malty note that blended in as well.
This is definitely high on my list of 52 Tea favorites!
