I managed to restock this and I am so happy! The taste is slightly different than what I remembered back when it was called Bourbon Vanilla, but the packaging is also different ( 50 teabags in that british no-string format rather than 20 envelopes teabags) but let´s give a discount to differences in memory, packaging and tea being a natural product which might have some variations in taste.
This is a camouflaged flavoured tea. The vanilla is really imperceptible, more noticeable in smell than in taste. But it does give a resonance to the tea taste, adds a sort of sweetness to it. I do love this tea, even if I do not usually like vanilla teas. Though if you want a very intense vanilla (or vanillin, most probably) tea, this is not it. The vanilla is hiding pretty subtly!
I hate vanilla scented teas usually. I dislike Assam-based teas. I love this tea and am desperately looking to buy more.
The vanilla flavour is so light one almost does not notice it, but it´s a rich natural vanilla-pod scent, it melds perfectly with the maltiness ( as the manufacturer puts it and they are right) of the tea. I love it. If you like vanilla and hate vanilla teas, this might be the one for you as well.
This is my first bagged white and, honestly? I wasn’t expecting much.
The scent af the the dry tea is of overpowering raspberry. I couldn’t detect the tea at all. I would say the steeping times on the box are a bit long – 45 seconds produced a cup that was on the way to being bitter.
The brewed tea smelled really, really nice. The raspberry had subsided and the tea was holding it’s own. The first sip tasted of plain white tea and the aftertaste was raspberry, but by the third sip the raspberry came through and I could taste it in the tea.
A really clean, refreshing cup. I will be buying more of this.
I was a bit wary of this tea because it smelled very cinnamony and I was afraid it was going to be too strong, but the flavour was suprisingly delicate and well balanced. I also left it a bit lobger than I should have, but it did not detract from the flavour at all. This tea is one I will be drinking regularly
As long as you’re careful not to brew too hot or for too long, this is very nice. Not going to set the house on fire, but good for the times you just want to throw a teabag in a cup and have a green tea quickly.
Also Clipper is a fantastic company – this one is fair trade and the new boxes are very attractive.
I made a huge mug of this to chase away my mild headache. When brewed correctly, it is nice and sweet with a pleasant taste without being complicated. It’s just a tea cupboard staple for when you want something simple, you know? That’s exactly what I needed now.
Very light [which is how they describe it!], smooth and delicate. It just kind of floats along with you. Definitely doesn’t overwhelm you. A tea for those moments of thought and calm, peaceful and relaxing. As I take milk [in most teas] I left the teabag in the whole time just to keep the flavour.
Lovely taste, could drink it all day. The “unbleached” teabags can be a bit of a turn-off because they look a bit dirty but less toxins and rubbish huh? I like the fact I don’t need to steep this tea forever to get a lovely strength and flavour. Very smooth, tastes like real tea should.
I’m trying this tea whilst sitting beside the Serpentine within Hyde Park. As I sit I’m watching the swans preen themselves, people riding horses on the far bank and listening to the Queens Guard bellow orders in the distance.
It’s a brisk morning and my partner and I needed a warm cup of tea to warm our bones. Earl Grey (my favorite) should do the trick.
The first time I tried this tea I found that although a balanced tea it is, it lacks the ompf I’ve come to expect from my Earl Greys. After brewing longer it’s starting to come out but it’s not quite there. In saying that I do enjoy it as it’s a ‘pure’ example of Earl Grey. It’s unadultered by citrus, rose and anything else they care to add.
It also is nice for an organic as most I find are selling karma not tea but that’s an aside.
Despite the fact I’m sure my enjoyment of the tea is biased by the cold and locale I’d still rate it highly. In short a good traditional tea in a country built on both tradition and tea.
I received some of these as a free sample from Clipper. I was so enthused, but I just cannot bring myself to like this. I find it a fickle brew, with a tendency to go straight from watery to astringent without ever seeming to pause at the sweet spot. I may give it another go, but I don’t hold any great hope.
