Wow! I enjoyed this cup.
Yes, the Jasmine was quite fragrant,
But no soapy taste for me.
This was quite a relaxing tea for me…
leaving me with a comfy, cozy feeling
like your favorite sweater, sleeping in on
the weekend with your lover…
This may not be my all time favorite,
But I will enjoy it while it’s here.
Different strokes for different folks ;-)
The dry tea smells mildly sweet
Taste is delicate and mildly sweet
My first cup~I overpowered it with a bit of honey
The re-steep I added only 1packet of Stevia and it was much better
The Bergamot was barely perceptible
This is one of those green teas that you have to be really careful with. Even though I was under the 2 minutes of minimum steep time I still feel it’s somewhat bitter. However, that could also be the pomegranate. If you’ve ever eaten pomegranate seeds straight from the fruit you know they can be kinda intense.
I’ve added some honey now. Definitely think that it’s the pomegranate that’s causing the slight bitterness.
Woke up way earlier this morning than I’m accustomed to, though for a fairly good reason (and a blameless one; I can’t expect people to instantly know that 1 PM is still a time when I’m typically sound asleep) – I have a job interview! It’s for the Calendar Club/Go Games! which would be something different than settings I’m used to – having only worked at a carnival and a movie theatre (both places focusing on food services). It’s also only a seasonal position, but really at this point a little money over a temporary period is better than no money at all.
Since it was an early morning (technically afternoon) for me, I really wasn’t in the mood to go through a more elaborate tea making process – so bagged tea it is! I quickly skimmed through the box of bagged tea I keep for unadventurous family, Tre, and people who in general I feel are not worthy of my loose leaf tea and this is the one I settled on.
The baggy itself smells like raspberry, albeit a more artificial smelling raspberry. It has a black tea base, and that’s present too. There’s no steeping instructions (something I hate about bagged tea) so I basically eyeballed it.
The raspberry in this tea is most present in the aftertaste, and even then it’s super mild and artificial tasting. The black tea base in this just tastes off and unpleasant. There’s some slight bitterness to it as well.
I’m wishing I had made a different cup of tea, and when I’m more awake I definitely plan to make something better.
So my first rating on Steepster can be called nothing but a head smacking moment. I am new to proper brewing and I have had this tin of tea since I received it as part of a Christmas package. I received this tea and another that I finished long ago because I could never get anything out of this one. What I mean is that I was so frustrated with it that it never went any deeper than a light yellow and had absolutely no flavor. WTH? I mean I was boiling the water, probably rolling, so what is going on with this tea. For almost a year I just thought it sucked.
So today. I am left with the left overs in my cabinet and I decide to steep a cup of this as I am into a cup of light tea and I really want to make it a little sweet. So, I heat some water to the point just before a boil and set my steepster app to white tea. What happens? I get this lovely, deep honey color tea with very pleasant flavor. I’m astonished that I have wasted 48 out 50 bags with boiling water. #49 I get it right and begin to like the tea. head smack I can finally taste the ginger and smell the lovely peach aroma. It’s a real treat. I think this tea needs to be in my cupboard forever, just because.
I’ve had a good experience and a bad experience with this tea. I tried this once when I was working a flight and thought it was pretty good even though the passion and papaya flavors were very mute. Then I tried it again this morning and couldn’t taste much.
This tea tasted so flowerly that I felt like I was drinking perfume. Gag. Ugh. No.
Pretty good as an iced tea, the blueberry comes out strongly.
I like to make iced tea out of this, and it has such a strong taste of rose petals for me; reminding me of my grandmother.
Received this as a Christmas gift as part of the Bentley’s Finest Tea Green Tea Sampler Pack. I wasn’t really sure of how the tea would taste. It is light on the blueberry flavor but not so light that you can’t taste it. Slight bitterness as well even though it wasn’t steeped for long.
This is one of my favorite teas as well and I don’t normally go for a bagged tea. I’ve had trouble finding it lately so I’m saving my last few bags for when I’m sick, it does wonders for an upset stomach. It’s a very slight and slightly sweet tea.
So the website calls this tea “Oriental Treasure Green Tea” and again, it has a tiny tea bag. I made around 16oz with a single bag. It was more bitter than I wanted it to be, but it was still good. It made me want cake or cookies.
These tea bags are on the small side, so I only used it to make a single mug as opposed to my regular teapot. It’s what you expect from an Earl Grey. I’m perfectly pleased with it and it’s worth the money I spent on it.
One of my favorites- not usually a person for tea bags but this tea is perfect when you’re looking for something fruity and light. I have also found it is great for an upset stomach!
Got a whole gang of Bentley’s teas for Valentine’s day from my dad and am just now remembering to add them to my cupboard. So far, I can’t stop having this one. It is pure heaven. And my husband says its “not as bad as the other ones” so that’s saying something since he absolutely hates all things earl grey. Earl grey has always been my “safe tea” when I’m out because its the one tea that most restaraunts that offer tea carry an earl grey and they always taste pretty similar and enjoyable to me. I would list this one today as my 2nd favorite earl grey tea. My 1st being Kusmi’s Bouquet of Flowers No. 108 which I should really get to ordering soon.
I received a big Bentley’s sampler cube for Christmas and I decided to go with blueberry. The black tea base is actually pretty smooth and sweet. The blueberry adds a nice fruity touch to it and it is very natural tasting. No fake flavors here :) It’s not too strong but you can definitely tell that It’s there.
This can easily be called the worst tea I have ever tried. It tastes of a disgustingly sweet vanilla. I taste a bit of milk. However, there is no tea taste. Just from taste it would be impossible to tell it was a black tea at all. The sweetness just adds to how bad it really is.
You might like this tea if you enjoyed watching Two Girls One Cup because it feels like warmed vomit going down your throat. I don’t think anyone would(or could) drink this completely.
If I was stranded on a boat in the middle of the ocean with no way to purify any seawater and all I had to drink was a gallon of this tea I would simply drink as much seawater to make my life end short so I would never be put into the situation where I actually contemplate drinking this pathetic excuse for tea.
On my first sip I spit back into the cup hoping it would just go away. On my second sip I took the down it quick and don’t think about it approach. On my third sip my gag reflex kicked in and I decided I might as well pour it down the sink.
So in recap, DON’T drink it.
It really is mediocre to the point of almost being bad.
On first sip it tastes spicy with a faint orange tang. Halfway through I realized it just was not cutting it. This tea is gross if you don’t give it enough time intervals between each sip. In other words you can’t drink too much of it.
It does, however, have a tangy orange peel aroma to it.
So in recap, you might as well put it in a jar whenever you want to smell the orange musk because drinking just makes you rethink why you bother drinking tea at all.
I agree that the orange flavor is somewhat lost in this, but adding some cream and sugar with two tea bags seeping through consumption made the spice in this tea stand out for me. When prepared this way, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
