7 Tasting Notes
This tea is amazing. Ever since the very first box, it became a staple in my tea closet. It is every bit as tasty as the name suggests, and it’s one of the few teas I would buy again as it ran out. I also like that it’s decaffeinated and tastes much smoother than your average green tea. There are very few green teas I would whole-heartedly recommend, and this one is a must-try in my opinion.
I like this tea. Not my favorite from Tazo, but it’s not bad and I enjoyed drinking it. It does have a bit of a bitter aftertaste considering it’s a white tea, and I think the name sounds better than the tea tastes (I picked up on a hint of the apricot, but couldn’t really taste the vanilla). For someone who’s used to Celestial Seasonings’ more vibrant vanilla flavor, that part was a bit of a letdown. However, this is still a wonderful late-afternoon relaxing tea that would be a great pairing with a good book. It doesn’t compare to a luxurious Fujian white tea but if I wasn’t looking for a dessert tea or a posh treat to serve to guests – just a nice afternoon tea to enjoy while I relaxed – this would not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this English breakfast tea, and love that I found a decaf black tea that I actually like. It’s perfect for brinner, I think – had it as an accompaniment to a vegan version of a full English breakfast and it was absolutely perfect. The reason I don’t give it a higher score is because I haven’t tried a wide enough variety of English breakfast teas to see how it stacks up against other brands. Once I do, I’ll be able to tweak the review. So far, very satisfied.

I like this tea when prepared with a splash of almond milk. It’s a good sweet summer red tea, even though the flavor palate seems more autumnal. The only reason I don’t up the rating is because the licorice flavor is overpowering, and for those like me who despise licorice tea, this is a drawback. However, it’s still worth keeping in stock and will be a big hit among the licorice-tea lovers especially. When toned down with a bit of almond milk, it makes for a nice dessert tea.
