Recent Tasting Notes
I enjoyed this one, mostly because I think it’s great fun to try someone elses favorite! I’m looking at you aisling :D
It was a great black tea, I can see why it’s a staple in many cupboards. Just the right amount of sweet mint. oo and I ate one of the candies and it was sooo good. It’s creamy and dark, I tried it plain every time and haven’t even wanted to try it with additions.
I did do a half and half with this and read my lips to make them both last longer as I’m almost out of both :(
Had a cup of this this afternoon at work as a smooth Friday afternoon tea. Was just perfect for my brain-dead end to the week.
Also did up a cup for my boss. He’s been wheezing and sinus-ing all week with a cold, thought I’d try and be helpful. He liked his cup too, said it was very smooth and creamy, which I don’t think he was expecting with a tea. He also thought it would be nice with honey.
This tea was another discovery from the advent calendar (totally ordering another one later this year, best tea investment I’ve made in a while!). Was a bit reluctant to try it at first, as I’m not a huge fan of nuts usually. Well! This tea confirmed my suspicion it was the texture of nuts, not the taste I usually don’t like. It was so delicious! And helped fight off the sore throat I got just before Christmas! (no, not placebo it works dammit!). I liked the walnut taste, and the white tea base set off the other flavours nicely. Was very calming on my throat and didn’t need extra sweetening (which is good as sugar is bad for a dry inflamed throat). Definitely going on my reorder list.
This is the first tea I’ve ever just wanted to LOOK at. The glitter is quite pretty in the light — I was jokingly calling it the Twilight vampire of teas.
The taste reminds me of Bigelow’s Constant Comment with the combination of orange peel, cinnamon, and cloves. However, the vanilla adds a different touch. The vanilla actually comes through much clearer than the orange, though. I’d like more of a balance between the two. That being said, the amount of sweetness added through the sugar balls and crystals is perfect.
Perhaps it’s just my love of constant comment, but I can’t say that this tea is my favourite without improving on the taste I already love. However, it’s a very nice take on a simmilar flavour pallette. I would love to have a cup of this while having an orange cake — I think that would be the perfect compliment, and add more of the orange flavour that I crave to taste more clearly in the tea.
I steeped two and a bit teaspoons in my two-cupper. First cup at five minutes — clear was very pretty. Second cup — some time later, with milk. I actually preferred it with milk — it added another nice layer that matched with the vanilla, and didn’t seem too bitter. However, it wasn’t anywhere near as pretty as it was clear. I guess you can’t have everything…..
I’m not a rooibos fan. I’ve found the methyl salicylate in “red tea” can be too pronounced for me and adds a mint flavor to everything. This one was different.
The fragrance was a soft, spicy coconut and it held through to the flavor. This was a warm, not hot, chai and the spices balanced with the coconut well. This is decaf so it’s a nice selection for fall or winter evenings.
Ended up biting the bullet and got a 50g bag in my last order. A very weird day today, so this seemed like the perfect night time post workout tea. And it was! Very tasty, and my bag seems to have more lavender in it than the sample tin from the advent calendar! Hmmm….. Taking away all the craziness from my Monday. Thank you, Jessie Farrell!
Unexpectedly enjoyable. A lavender tea? It sounded quite weird before I tried it, but I’d learned to trust in David!
Turns out its very comforting, just like the scent of lavender. But I think the taste comes more form the rooibos and coconut, it tastes nothing like I imagine a sprig of lavender would! All in all a very enjoyable tea.
I wanted to love this one. Like, if I was on a desert island this is the tea I’d take love it. Like, I vow to take this tea above all others for the rest of my days. And in theory, I should’ve. I’m an earl grey fan. And I like berries. And I’d previously tried and liked both Davids earl greys and berry teas. And this one smells truly amazing in the wall tin/bag. Just stunning. But see, I’ve gone through my 50g bag I actually bought in person in a shop, and I’m always left wanting. There has been a bitter aftertaste with every mouthful of this tea I’ve tried, and I’ve varied the temperature and steep time, changed the level of sugar/agave I’ve added (yes, tried to get both to work), and nothing. Well, nothing a amazing as this tea smells (dry and steeped). It’s mightily puzzling and disappointing. Will just have to stick with my other earl grey faves, Cream of EG and Countess of Seville.
The carrot flavour is not as pronounced as I was led to believe by the name of this tea. I can mostly taste the flavour of coconut mixed with the oolong- which is an interesting experience on its own. I’m not sure what the “artificial flavour” added to this tea was for, but there seems to be an unpleasant taste (which can be described as “artificial”) in every sip.
When cold-brewed this tea has an unpleasant, sour quality to it.
This is a lovely fruity earl grey. I really liked this as something different but still classic.
I thought that the fruitiness really came out in this tea and gave it a little punch that I wasn’t expecting.
In my opinion, the aroma in the bag is the same as in the tea, and it tastes that way as well!
I got this one as the valentine’s tea and chocolate tins from my husband.
I really liked this tea and have been drinking it on Sundays or as a special treat when I deserve one! lol
First, I taste the chocolate, and then the strawberries….chocolate covered strawberries. As I sip more into the cup, I get the floral taste of the rose petals.
My little tin is now all gone, I will be re-stocking this one!
