141 Tasting Notes
I found this in my mother’s cupboard, so I thought I would give it a try. Tastes like mulled cider lite, as if it were made with bottled apple juice rather than cider. Having said that, it tastes natural, if a little subdued, but then I don’t like it when herbal tisanes are over-spiced. A good drink when you come in from the cold, but then most hot teas are!
Good strawberry flavor. I oversteeped this, so it was a little astringent (It is so easy to get distracted). Nice with a littlel half and half – strawberry and cream – Mmm!
My second cup of this tea. It is not only less citrusy than Twinings Ceylon, it also maltier: perhaps the malty taste covers up the citrus notes.
This has become my regular first cup in the morning tea. I hardly notice the astringency anymore and it has a wonderful rich, malty, full-bodied flavor.
The box does not list the specific fruit flavors, but I can taste banana and pineapple, which appear in a picture on the box. The picture also shows a mango and a pomegranate , but I don’t taste those fruits. The flavors are not overpowering, which was what I was expecting of the banana flavor especially. A pleasant flavored tea.
The taste is natural and enjoyable. The mango flavor is not too strong, but complements the black tea. Ahmad has updated the box, and perhaps the tea as well, since they now call it Mango Magic with real fruit pieces, and list 2% mango in the ingredients.
Much better than their Orange tea; more natural tasting. The flavor is of raspberries and blueberries, in a good ratio. The blueberry gives the raspberry more depth. Another dessert tea, good with chocolate.
Backlogging from earlier today. A standard Ceylon tea, on the same level as Bigelow and Dilmah, not as flavorful as Twinings, and much more astringent at the finish, though no bitterness. I used the teabag version, with milk and sugar.
I oversteeped this bag, but it did not become bitter. Nice citrusy flavor, comparable to Twinings, but with a more astringent finish.
I have a hard time making up my mind about this tea. I don’t generally use cardamon, so I am not used to the taste. It is sweet, but unusual kind of sweet. I can taste both the cardamon and the ceylon tea base, which go together well, but I think I would only drink this if I were eating spicy, especially Indian food.
