433 Tasting Notes
Can’t wait to finish off the tin of bagged tea I have of this blend so I can try the loose kind that seems to be so much better! Today I brewed it for a long time, hoping it would be a bit spicier, but no go. It’s not terrible, just dull.
Haven’t had this in a while as I’ve been going to Caribou Coffee instead of Starbucks lately (I don’t like their chai blend nearly as much though), and it tasted fantastic today. Two huge thumbs up!
Oversteeped this this morning, so added some half-and-half (which I never do). Not bad, actually. Not much else to say about this one!
Got a sample of this in the traveling tea box (I assume it’s the same blend listed here), and am trying it today. I brewed for 5 min., as was noted on the bag, and was a little paranoid about it coming out bitter, but it’s really nice. It’s a lovely golden-brown colour and smells good as well. It doesn’t scream “earl grey” to me (maybe the bergamot isn’t very strong?), but it’s very pleasant. Not too heavy of a black tea blend, and very nice for morning tea.
Drinking the last of this… I think it’s fairly old as I can’t remember buying it! This blend is on par with other black currant blends I’ve tried. None of them has really stood out much from another, to be honest. Decent cup of black, slightly fruity tea.
Predictably meh, but so is my day so this is somehow fitting. It should be called “good enough standard black tea”.
