drank Raspberry Indulgence by Ahmad Tea

Very strong aroma as the tea is brewing. Much better taste than Bigelow’s Raspberry Royale – the raspberry flavor is natural, though I do not taste the tea underneath at all. A good dessert tea; it would go well with dark chocolate.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

Smooth and sweet, without any bitterness and not much astringency. At the same time, it lacks something – Twinings Ceylon has more citrus notes. As it cooled, however, it began to have some of the floral taste of Darjeeling

drank Orange tea by Pickwick
141 tasting notes

I tried this tea this morning. The orange flavor tasted somewhat artificial, even though the flavoring is supposed to be natural. The orange was so strong, that I could not taste the underlying tea, except for a lingering astringency afterward. Wihtout sugar, it was somewhat bitter, like orange peel, but with sugar, it was like drinking hot Tang. I may try brewing this again with a shorter steeping period, or perhaps cold-brewing it.

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Apricot Sunrise by Ahmad Tea

Another solid fruit tea from Ahmad. The flavor tastes natural, like fresh apricots. I think this would be great as an iced tea or cold-brewed.

drank Darjeeling by Twinings

I cold-brewed the tea this time, using three teabags in an 18 oz. jar and left it to brew for about 24 hours in the fridge. The slight bitter aftertaste and astringency disappeared, leaving only the floral sweetness and aroma of the Darjeeling. There is nothing quite like it.

Profile

Bio

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
