I picked this up from my local supermarket today after I realised my husband has run out of bagged tea. It says this won a great taste gold place award in 2011 so I’m more than happy to give it a go.

Brewed with sugar and milk.

This tea is light and malted with slight smoky and and fragrant citrus notes. Very clean tasting and mellow for a Ceylon. Also has elements of wood and musk.

It’s a delicious tea, very surprised with it. Worth the risk buy this morning :)

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Had a cuppa at a bikie pie stop. Didn’t expect too much but it was really really lovely! It was steeped perfectly and the water temperature matched it wonderfully. I’d definitely have it again :)

I have been subsisting on bag teas the last few days as I’m staying with a friend, though their espresso machine has been of more interest to me! This tea was hidden way back in their pantry, and as a peppermint fan I had to try it. The first time it was uninteresting and kind of tasteless, but steeping 2 bags in one mug yielded a minty and pleasant tea. I also forgetfully over-steeped this a couple times (I’m talking like, 15-20 minutes+) and that possibly made it better.

This is Aldi tea. I first started buying it because it is very cheap, 160 bags for a mere…um I can’t quite remember but it’s not very much! Actually, I’m getting £1.99 from the crew which represents stunning value indeed.

It’s just fine tea, I like it!

67 points seems fair giving your critique.
