I love the smell and taste of this tea, it sometimes doesnt even need to be sweetened, but just a small portion of splenda or agave nectar and this tea makes it taste like 2x as much… my favorite green tea!

drank English Breakfast Tea by Hyson

I took it as a bad sign when I opened the little paper package and sniffed. There was no scent at all coming from this tea. As it brewed, dark and cloudy, there came a hint of aroma finally. It reminded me of the big tea brewer I used in my waitress days at a country club. I tried to keep my expectations positive, as I love Ceylon.

I added 2 teaspoons of sugar and tasted it. I mostly tasted sugar, with a bit of a Ceylon aftertaste at the end. It tastes cheap and mass-produced with lots of filler. Leaves a sour taste in my mouth and is pretty astringent. I do not recommend this unless it’s a last resort.

I just remembered I forgot to log this from Sunday! I had this at Bible Study before church. I’m not a black tea person, but I was disappointed w/ the strawberry green I’d had last time and I love apple so I went for it. JUST like taking a bite of an apple! If you like black teas and you like apple, this is actually a very good bagged tea. I’m impressed.

drank Strawberry Green by Hyson

Drank this at Bible Study so I dunno how hot the water was. The green tea was pretty good for a bagged, but the strawberry tasted like I sweetened it w/ strawberry simple syrup. NOT my cuppa.

I hear you. I often feel bad about rating a tea when I am not the one in control of the steeping and brewing times. Same deal with the water quality. It’s hard to judge a tea when the water already tastes funny. It happens, I guess.

No, that’s not it. If it was, I wouldn’t have rated it. I don’t think the water could have changed it enough increase the rating a lot.
