With all the after-holiday coughs and sniffles, I reached for this one hoping for strong antioxidant qualities. I often have a problem with the color of white tea since I like to sample the tea with my eyes first then taste. While the color is light, both color and taste are very rich in this blend so but I enjoyed it. This was a sample but I think that I am going to add this to my shopping list.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I just must not like Ginger Black tea. To me, it has an almost Licorice taste. If it’s not twizzlers from a bag, I don’t like licorice, eck. Perhaps this is how it’s supposed to taste as Ginger and black, I don’t know. It wasn’t horrible and I could drink it, but it’s certainly not “my cup of tea.” I did love my Ginger lemon green tea from Coffee shop of horrors but with green tea perhaps it’s different. This is the second time I’ve gotten this taste, with two different teas, so can only assume it’s from when a decent amount of Ginger is used.
A soft, light, but tasteful black tea. The background flavours blend well and subtly to create a soothing, smooth, almost creamy black tea. Have had it twice now. The first time I think the flavours came through better, may have not steeped enough the second time. Not bitter at all and mild, soothing, calm black tea.
I enjoyed this while at lunch with girlfriends at a nice tearoom Sugarplums and Tea. We had great food and tea! A lovely time!
This tea was greatly flavored strawberry and I also got the cream part while using a nice light green tea base. Super yummy, refreshing and relaxing! We each had our own pot of different tea but I think everyone purchased some of this one loose to take home. We all loved it!
After posting on the discussion board about my son eating this tea, I raced into the kitchen to fix a pot of this. We usually drink this in the summer as ice tea but it is fun to switch around sometimes. With so much cold weather, we’ve been drinking a great deal of hot cider so this was a nice change.
On a side note – I love it when a tea becomes more than simply a beverage. Fixing this always floods me with fond memories of my grandfather. The strong aroma when you open the tin reminds me of his pipe tobacco which must have been fruit flavored.
With a name like Russian Black, I expected a smoky flavor but got quite a surprise. This is a sweet fruity blend. According to the description, this is a popular blend created for one of their tea parties. You can easily taste the strawberries and raspberries. I definitely will be picking up more of this so that we can try it as ice tea next time.
This is probably my favorite of all the green teas I have ever tried. Very versatile. It doesn’t taste too “green” (bitter might be a better word there). I feel it’s smooth and not too mellow. I like it iced and hot, sweetened or not. It’s a nice one to mix with florals or herbs. I have used it to make a nice remedy for sinus infections/congestion and have mixed it with clay to make a facial!
The black adds body but the white gives it a subtle sweetness and mellows it out. The pomegranate is just right, not too pungent. I don’t get the cream so much…maybe it’s making it smooth rather than giving it a cream flavor. I typically sweeten my tea but didn’t feel it needed it at all. Very nice treat to wake up to.
This is one of my summertime favorites. I always drink it cold and sweeten it with stevia. It almost has a floral quality to it on the back of the tongue. It is very mellow and delicate so I tend to steep it up to 10 minutes for a stronger flavor. I have used about 4 teaspoons for a 5 cup pot but thinking I might up it to 5 teaspoons.
Happy to say my efforts move the entire family away from soda to ice tea have been successful. This seems to be my husband’s favorite ice tea. The fruit bits add a pleasant raspberry taste. I’ve had plenty of others that had an artificial taste afterwards. We’ve already downed the entire pitcher. Looks like I’m going to have to start making a double batch.
Anna Marie’s Tea Shop was serving this at the Taste of Liberty event this evening. Given that the weather was warm and humid after a storm, this was a delight served iced. My husband enjoyed it so much that he actually suggested that I purchase some to fix at home. What a shock since he is usually teasing me that I have too much tea stock piled. Who was I to argue???
