30 Tasting Notes
It reminds me of a red hot or those cinnamon peppermints you can get. No, thanks.
No. It tastes like candy to me. I have had Bigelow’s perfect peach and it is excellent, at least in comparison. Also I recently had a loose leaf peach tea at a restaurant only a few weeks ago and now i see the difference. Maybe I should stop buying Celestial Seasonings. I only like their Chai tea so far and Bigelow’s is just as good.
This is my new go-to tea for sore throats. I get very bad sore throats sometimes and I’ve tried every remedy from lozenges to cough drops to concoctions known to make sore throats better and this one of the few things that really provides relief. The lemon is great because it has healing properties. Combine that with honey and you’ve got everything you need to get back to feeling good.
I last logged this tea around this time two years ago. Must be my time of the year for Lady Grey. I’ve made it a lot of times with non-dairy creamer and sugar, but a few times without creamer. I kind of prefer it without the creamer, which is not how I usually take any black tea. The creamer really dulls the bergamot and citrus flavors. So I suppose if you find those flavors too strong, put some cream in. :)
This is my first rooibos. As soon as I smelled it I knew I didn’t want to steep this one for very long. It’s quite woodsy, but I can’t decide if that’s good or bad. It is borderline unpleasant, but not so much that I feel I must throw it down the drain without another sip. My cup has a bit of plain creamer and sweetner in it, and I’m fairly certain the water that was already in the kettle is not unfiltered. Maybe I will try this again with better water and such. I hope it can be better than this or it will take a lot to get through 19 more tea bags. :(
Someone from the UK suggested Yorkshire tea to me. I was glad the store had the gold version since I’d heard such good reviews of it on Amazon. I’ve never been a big fan of basic teas—they have always been too plain for me. This one, however, has a really nice, rich flavor to it. I used filtered water and heavy whipping cream for the first cup. I’m curious how it would have been with tap water and cheap powdered creamer. I probably wouldn’t have liked it. I will definitely get this again. Good thing it came in a box of 40!
First, it’s important to note that I’m not big on fruit teas. Out of all the fruit blends I’ve had, Peach is one of the better ones, just maybe not this particular one. It tastes a bit too artificial to me. I also like fruit teas better cold, so I’d enjoy this more in the summer.
With cream it’s almost like drinking coffee. The hazelnut flavor really comes out, more so than the vanilla. Don’t go by smell because the smell of it in the packaging isn’t that appealing, but once it gets brewing it smells wonderful. It’s just a bit too much like coffee to be something I’ll drink all the time, but the fact that it’s decaf is nice.
Unfortunately I threw away the box before I could post the information about this tea. It’s very much like Celestial Seasonings’ Blueberry herbal tea. I don’t even know what acai and pomegranate taste like enough to say if those flavors were prominent. I do know it was pretty good with milk, but for some reason had a candied flavor.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but I really enjoy the tangerine flavor. That’s the only flavor I can detect from it though, except a bit of berry. I like it! It doesn’t try too hard to be spectacular, just something nice and warm for a rainy day or iced for a hot summer day.
