Very drinkable with a nice peppery finish. My wife’s favourite everyday type of tea. A very good value tea.

This is a great black tea! It’s strong enough to stand up to milk and sugar, which I’ve been enjoying in the brisk mornings as the weather has been cooling down (it reminds me almost of chai!). It’s a perfect morning tea- just the smell of it is enough to get me out of bed :)

Steep up to slightly dark yellow color, smell great, taste even better if steep for another 15sec more. Gets bitter even if steep for another 10sec so watch your timing. Currently my favorite morning tea~

This is a pure black tea but it does has hints of fruit! I guess that shows the fine quality of the tea leaves and clearly differentiates it from other low quality, astringent Ceylon tea in the market. :) So far Dilmah’s tea has not disappointed me!

Hmmm. It’s not bad, per se. Highly astringent the way ceylons can be. The leaves must be either a first flush, or something akin to that because it tastes rather “fresh” but has very little depth to it, as Wayne mentioned. The tea is quality though. Very smooth for being bagged and not at all dusty.
Except, well, the maltiness is so minimal that I’m actually not looking forward to finishing the other 19 bags I have left. Atleast it was free! I’ll never turn down a free tea sample if I haven’t tried it before :)
I made Mum a cuppa to. If she doesn’t like it, would anyone else like to try this one? It just isn’t my cup of tea…

and she doesn’t like it, so anyone who wants it, it’s theirs!

drank Earl Grey by Dilmah
1945 tasting notes

This tea is pretty common at coffee shops here in Warsaw, and I had a pot of it this afternoon. For a bagged tea, it was actually pretty tasty. I know for sure that this is a Ceylon base, since the company makes a big deal about how their tea is 100% single-origin Ceylon. The bergamot was strong enough to be the main event, but not overpowering, and overall the flavor was fairly well-balanced.

A nice basic tea, and a decent option when on the go, but once again I’m finding it lacking a certain depth of flavor, as with the bagged Twinings EG I had earlier, though I do think I prefer this one of the two, probably due to the origin differences of the black tea base.

drank Apple flavoured tea by Dilmah

I know I know, the aroma of apple is purely artificial…. but still, I find it irresistible! :P I am glad that unlike some apple teas, there’s no odd colouring in it. A nice, relaxing tea to round off a meal.

I steeped this first in some water that was sitting out for a while (this is my first pure white tea and I didn’t want to, er, I dunno, burn it?), so the first liquor was subtly sweet and reminded me of Black Needles from DAVIDsTEA.

The second steeping was close to boiling and a much deeper yellowy golden liquor that was very pleasing. I’m trying to savour this one as it’s a bit pricey, but still around $1 per bag is not that bad when you compare it with anything from a take-out joint.

Definitely developing an appreciation for this one, citrusy notes come out strong, a bright flavourful cup

So I have yet to try a Ceylon black tea that I really, really like – I think maybe it’s just one variety that doesn’t have the characteristics I’m looking for in my tea. I prefer a more full-bodied malty taste like Assam, or with some other interesting characteristics like Keemun or Yunnan Gold (Black Needles).

I can’t say it’s bad, but I can’t say I love it either.

drank Rose With French Vanilla by Dilmah
61 tasting notes

I am drinking this one as my afternoon pick me up at work today. It does the job pretty well. If you ever wanted to drink roses, this may be you tea. :) It also reminds me of turkish delight but it doesn’t have any orange or pistachio flavors, maybe it is just the vanilla making the rose taste sweeter.

Normally I get mostly rose from this tea but I have just hit my office jellybean stash and I am getting more of the vanilla notes. I take this tea plain but now I think I may have to experiment with sugar and maybe even milk in the future.

drank Rose With French Vanilla by Dilmah

I drank this one last night. It is very fragrant and lovely. The flavor and aroma is mostly rose but is is softened by the vanilla. The vanilla, to me anyway, didn’t really have a distinct note in the tea but didn’t make the tea any less good. I felt very spolied. It is a light tea.

Agree with Veronica that it’s a mood booster… this rose tea is an elegant drink. It smells so fragrant and sweet that no matter how busy you are, you can’t resist the temptation to pause to enjoy it. I feel like a princess as I take a sip, even though I am rushing a report at home in my old pyjamas!!!

Fair to middling supermarket-acquired tea; good tea bag, but the tea itself looked a bit broken (not whole tea leaves). Held up with milk and sugar, but didn’t have an especially pronounced, strong tea flavor or aroma. Would brew with a longer steep time in the future.

Drank this tea the 5th time and I decide to up the rating a bit. I like this tea more and more – particularly the fact that it smells really sweet and enticing but the toffee flavour does not overwhelm the original flavour of black tea. A perfect balance! :)

Ooooo… sweet toffee candy! The nostalgic scent stopped the time and put me into a relaxed mood. The peppermint was refreshing too. I am glad that I have found yet another great mint tea! Thanks Terrible for the tea bags ;)

I thought the pure peppermint tea by Twinings was good, but it’s not until I tried this Arabian Mint Tea with Honey did I realize the true definition of “good”! When I opened the box I was already overwhelmed by the aroma of honey, which was sooooo lovely! The tastes of mint and honey in this tea are in perfect balance, so that it is neither overly minty/herbal nor overly sweet. It’s a tea great for cold evenings I think. Thanks Evil who bought me this tea! :)

A seductive tea, combination of quality tea and sensuous fragrance of rose petals. The rose fragrance is tinged with the flavour of French Vanilla, heightening the romance of this tea and softening its character.

Tasting Notes Light brown-yellow with green nuances. Bright, breezy, effortlessly light and snappy yet with tannins of fortitude. Long lasting in aftertaste. Like Champagne made from cool climate grapes picked just before they get too ripe. An exquisite and alluring tea.

This is my favourite brew for the morning.
