Smooth…not as hefty as I wanted for my first cup but it’s not bad!

I love “heft” as a tea adjective.

Well, not terrible but I find this a little soapy. Thankfully not overly so…but there is that taste that I am picking up. I’m sure it’s the smoothness of the actual tea along with the Bergamot flavor. I prefer Culinary’s other flavored EG’s better, however, I was able to finish the entire cup.

Soapy? That doesn’t sound appealing at all. No bubbles right? LOL :-)

WOW. This one is odd…but sometimes odd is GOOD, right!? Well, let’s see…

The dry smells like toasted peanuts with a slight woodsy smell hiding underneath. The wet leaves and post infusion liquid smells like soy sauce. Yes…It reminds me of soy sauce. The color of the liquid is a medium drab brown. The taste is surprisingly good. It has a nutty taste to it but also a roasted or toasted flavor as well as a little like mocha but oddly smoother than I anticipated.

Yeah…this one is odd but good. Not bad at all. Fairly Complex. Makes you think…

Thank you Doulton for allowing me the opportunity to try this tea.

Slightly bitter and a bit creamy. The maple is there but it is almost like a bully forcing him/herself into a situation that they are not invited to. I found this tea to be rough around the edges. I do see potential if the blend percentages were tweaked a bit.

Extra points were given for potential.

This is excellent! I like the trade of orange instead of the chemically or fake bergamot I have been tasting in eg’s lately. I like the lemongrass addition as well! Bold yet smooth finish!

I’ve been wanted to try a Watermelon Tea!!! Woot! Here it is…

This smells lovely a little more watermelon than kiwi. It just intensifies as you infuse. Ahhhhh! Awesome and flavorful aroma! It looks like a typical green tea.

The taste is wonderful! Incredible juicy and thirst quenching. You can still taste the mouth-watering green tea but it’s almost equally paired with the watermelon/kiwi tango-dance of goodness! YUMMY!

Caitlin

That sounds uber yummy!

What?! Watermelon AND kiwi in a green tea!!?? Ooooooh I must try this one!

This has a chewy-nutty-earthy-manly type taste and scent. It’s slightly astringent. Pretty good as far as Darjeelings go!

This has always been one of my favorites. Currently I am drinking it iced and the flavors really shine in the cold – I do the cold brew in the fridge method. Used about 7 teaspoons for 1 1/2 quarts, about 7 hours. Really good, refreshing stuff!

This is truly incredible! :)
If you are looking for a pear flavored tea – this is IT!!!!

This is highly scented and highly flavored! I don’t think it would get any more PEAR than this!

LOVING this!!!!

Hi there TeaEqualBliss! Long time no see!!! I see we tasted the same tea – and had quite the opposite opinions. That’s Ok… I saw somewhere else that someone hated one of my favorite Ceylon teas :-) Nice to see you!

TeaEqualsBliss

Hiya! I totally see what you mean about the Jolly Rancher. At the time of logging this I was looking for a HIGHLY flavored pear so I was jazzed! LOL

I’m not tasting the Jammy-ness today but I am getting a strong, burly, peppery punch and those ‘boxed’ raisins – passing the rest of this on to a friend.

BOLD. I was looking for a Bold one this morning and this is the first bold one in my stash that I found. It did the job!

This is one of my favorite Assams, and definitely my favorite from Culinary Teas.

When I first smelled the dry leaves I was thinking it smelled like those Raisins in the lil red boxes…just a tad tho.

Post infusion it smells like bakey black tea.

The taste is a BOLD black tea taste a little sweet at first but then turns a bit jammy. This is a good strong tea, indeed! I like it!

gmathis

This is my favorite Assam from Culinary Teas. Good call.

This is a VERY Creamy Earl Grey…emphasis on the cream and black tea a hint of the bergamot. Nice twist on the EG…decent flavored cuppa! :)

This was the tea for today’s virtual tea tasting via Skype with Sandy. It was more vegetal than I remembered. I like darjeeling tea much better now that I know to only steep for 3 minutes!
