Not my favourite earl grey blend but it does nicely if you like your earl grey slightly stronger, with a ‘burnt’ taste.
This is a very refreshing drink. The mint taste is quite lovely.
Since I like most of Gryphon’s blends, this chamomile came across as a disappointment. It doesn’t taste much of anything.
Quite a delicious tea. The vanilla enhances the osmanthus with a silky feel to it. Highly recommended.
My body doesn’t like eucalyptus. If tea tree aromatherapy blocks up your nose, you will likely find this a very bitter tea no matter now you brew it. I had to give it all away.
It’s quite a gentle tea, which has a hint of lemongrass and ginger. I prefer something stronger.
More of a rose tea than a jasmine tea. I love the fragrance!
It has a strong mango taste which tastes and smells quite nice!
Interesting blend. I was pleasantly surprise the blend of bergamot and shiso. It leaves a fragrant aftertaste on the tongue and in your nose. It is lightly sweet as well. However resteeping doesn’t taste good.
Well balanced, not overpowering, just as it should be. No milk required. Pleasant drop.
Fresh, invigorating, a great pick-me-up tea. Recommended also for helping to avoid on-coming colds.
Elegant drop perfect for late evening. Hints of marshmallows and musk. Lovely !!!
This is just exquisite – I might have to review my line “don´t like flavoured whites”, because it seems if the flavouring is right, I do!
How peculiar that the pairing of a herb with a flower produces such fruity notes – like strawberry almost. Really lovely.
I thought this one from Gryphon was very nice. Clean, tight flavour and a good afternoon tea for sure. Nice one !
Whilst this drop is enjoyable I think it’s unremarkable. I agree that competing herbs seem to dull the effect of each other. Perhaps the ratio could be adjusted by Gryphon.
A very elegant and relaxing tea indeed. Perfect for late evening. Not overpowering, beautiful leaf blend, and a sophisticated drop to the last.
Another GTC tea from Treasures variety box! It’s also the last bag I have for this flavour…
I know everybody has different preference, but it’s hard for me to believe that there are ppl who don’t like a beautiful tea like this. It’s quite a strong tea but it’s “feminized” by a generous amount of bergamot and lavender. When I picked up my cup, I thought I was holding a bouquet of lavender! The floral fragrance was natural and very calming, and it took a cup of fairly good Earl Grey to an even higher level. Lovely.
My last bag of Hanami from GTC’s Treasures… I am sad to see it go! :( Unlike TWG Tea, I don’t think I can get GTC’s tea anywhere but in Singapore…
This is surprisingly creamy, a quality that I do not expect in a sencha. Sakura presents in the form of soft floral fragrance and subtle sweetness in the tea, which is lovely. The sweet flavour reminds me of sakura-scented Japanese sweets I had before. It certainly evokes the image of sakura bloom in spring (in fact, hanami is Japanese for flower viewing)! I can almost see sakura petals in the cup. ;)
The Japanese often pair sencha with sweets (wagashi), and I think this tea is exactly the result of such pairing. I am impressed :)
This is my first lavender tea ! Thank you so much LaFleurBleue for sharing it with me.
we are first hit by a wonderful scent of lavender, I mean a real true lavender exactly like the one you can smell everywhere in Provence (or in the grand’ma’s armory ;) ) this is really enjoyable.
Again, I love the high quality muslin sachet of this brand…so perfect that none tea leaf manage to pass though !
the tea base is pleasant and really good but I was thinking it may have been a little bit stronger – but it’s perfect like that either.
The taste of lavender is absolutely lovely.
While cooling, the tea becomes stronger and different but the wonderful taste & scent of lavender remains intact.
A very lovely tea
