15 Tasting Notes
This tea tastes like a cookie. It really does. It’s the perfect answer to those evening dessert cravings if you’re watching your waistline or your wallet. I only wish that it was a little stronger; I find I usually have to use two bags or add another bag of plain Lipton or something.
I accidentally read the name of this as Cinnamon Blossom, and that’s the only reason it made it home. I gave it a good try but it was even icky when iced. Just a strange combination of flavors… Bleh.
Probably my favorite commercial tea, this has a wonderful malty flavor that pairs perfectly with a dark agave nectar and some milk. If you can get it from the UK, I suggest you do so! A good introductory Assam.
There are few commercial bagged teas that I really enjoy, and this is one of them. I got a box on my last trip to Scotland and I will sorely miss it when it’s gone! It’s nice and light, perfect for a mid-day pick-me-up at work, especially with a little agave nectar and milk.
Eh. It’s interesting to see everyone else’s take on this blend. I don’t especially care for fruity teas, and this is no exception. It’s not bad but I only bought this because of the black tea element and those flavors are totally absent in the flavor profile of the resultant beverage. I don’t taste any mint either, just a mild fruitiness. It’s not unpleasant, it’s just not what I was hoping for. I’m going to have to try it iced, because I think that would be very refreshing, but this isn’t at all what I expected.
