Another find in the office kitchen. I’ve had (probably) the world’s worst cold this last week, and all I wanted today was some normal tea. It’s a thing with me when I’m ill, and I can’t taste anything particularly well at the moment anyway, so…
I used one bag for my cup. They’re individually wrapped in the cutest red, white and blue envelopes. I gave it a good 3.5 minutes, and added milk. To taste, it’s pretty much as you’d expect. It reminds me quite a lot of Bluebird’s Great British Cuppa, in that it has a waxy roast white potato aspect to it. There’s also a hint of saltiness in the mid-sip, which works well with the potato note. The maltiness comes out mostly towards the end of the sip, and in the aftertaste, and adds a pleasant sweetness to round off on. It’s robust-tasting, but not as strong as some I’ve tried – just a pleasing, everyday kind of cup. Just what I was craving!
I am so over this. One more and it’s a sipdown. It’s just a plain, one-note rooibos, and not even a good one at that. It’s got a sort of chemically taste which I find really odd. On top of that I bought it in a rooibos four-pack, the other three being flavoured, and every single one of them, despite being individually wrapped, has always tasted the same. It’s not exactly foul spit-it-out-immediately tasting, but it’s boring my tastebuds to death and I’d be happy never to drink it again.
I can taste a nice hint of blueberry in this tea. The mild blueberry flavour is enjoyable. I’m not sure what elderflower is and therefore, I don’t know what it’s supposed to taste like so I have no idea if I’m tasting it or not. Really, I just taste the blueberry and that’s fine by me.
Fantastic tea. The smell I found slightly off-putting at first but was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it! It tastes completely different from its smell and this is a good thing. One of their best teas. It is a delicious treat with shortbread cookies for the winter holidays.
A wonderful flavor if taken just black, adding milk just adds to the overall great taste. Without milk or sugar, it may be a bit of an overpowering impression that cancels out the peach with its black tea base. This tea is great taken in any way.
