Dry leaf…WHOLEY BERGAMOT! It kind of smells like Orange Glo!

After infusion – gladly – I can smell more of the black tea.

The taste is very, very strong and bold. Bergamot, floral, and a little black tea. I don’t know if it’s ‘superior’ but it’s different and gets the job done for a morning cup! I would probably drink again.

Go Granny! It’s Yo Burff-day! Party Like it’s Yo’ Burff-Day! Sorry…all I can think of is like a little old granny dancing or singing or something…Kind of like the old lady in the Wedding Singer!? I soooooo LOVE that movie!!!!

Anyhow…on to the review. It’s simple. It’s nice, evenly flavored green tea. The smell is what sold me! This is a good chugging or sipping tea…good hot or cold…fruity and fun. True to the apple tho! A nice change!

This is an incredibly unusual oolong, and one I’m very glad I tried. When brewed, this tea has a sharp fruitiness to it, which reminds me distinctly of dry white wine and something else that I can’t quite put my finger on. It tastes as it smells; that unusual sharpness a wonderful contrast to the smooth vegetal aftertaste. It’s really something else and I am not doing it justice. Each infusion had the same wine-like aroma and taste. I don’t think I’ll drink this often but it’s a wonderful addition to my tea cupboard.

This is very much not my thing, I’m afraid. I have been intrigued by the ‘milk’ oolongs since I first read about them on a tea forum, and this seems like a good one to start with. I can clearly taste that it’s a good, high quality tea with that distinctive ‘sweet milk’ aroma. The only problem is that it just isn’t to my taste. I find the smell far too sweet and cloying, and the taste on the first brew is far too creamy and odd for my liking. The second infusion is much more pleasant but I couldn’t stomach any more. I don’t want to put people off since it’s clearly a high quality oolong but I really do not understand this fondness for such a cloying taste!

I definitely need to try this more so expect this note to change. However, as it stands right now, I’m not exactly blown away by this tea despite its description as a high quality oolong. It’s not bad by any means but has none of the complexities I like in my oolongs. I find it quite strong with a vegetal bite. Maybe I like my oolongs a little more flowery? I’m sticking with this for now because it might be a brewing issue. Definitely worth a try for oolong fans, though.

Just a note: I have yet to procure this particular CC Cran Rooibos, but in general, cranberry tinge is a good balancer to the trademark rooibos flair and taste, as per palate. I didn’t like rooibos as a start, and vanilla in addition doesn’t even come close to hinting rooibos as delectable. Purely subjective, but I’m forming this review to those as a good gateway to enjoying rooibos and similar red teas.

This tea has a very strong smoke taste. It makes me feel nostalgic for the camp fires.
It’s not an every day tea for me, but when I am in a right mood, it’s unresistable.

Very interesting Earl Grey. The blue flowers add a lot of good flavour

Looks beautiful in the tin. I am not the biggest jasmine fan, but I gave some to a friend who is, and they were greatly impressed, they soon bought a large tin of their own

I have had earl grey tea for years and never had it taste so delicious. The flavors are rich and flavorful but with no bitterness or strange aftertaste. I would highly recommend this tea for a morning or afternoon treat

It took me a few cups to appreciate this tea. It’s very strong-flavored, so you will probably either like it or not. Definitely the highest grade of jasmine teas

I love earl grey and this is about the best i’ve ever had. It’s wonderful plain or with cream and sugar. The bergamot does not overwhelm like it can in other teas.
