This is a very interesting take on Earl Grey. It’s clearly the classic flavours, but much more fragrant. I tend to brew it black with only a little leaf for a few minutes as a very refreshing pick-me-up. The other way is to brew it for 5 minutes with a fair amount of leaf, then have it with milk. This gives a good smoky Earl Grey and is excellent in the morning.
I was really disappointed by this tea. I bought it in a fit of homesickness – I’m very far from my native Vermont, and when I saw it in a Russian mall I thought it was too good to be true! It came in the coolest tin, too (UVM green and gold!) so I figured it would be worth an impulse buy. But I’ve been so disappointed! I’ve really tried to make this tea work – experimenting with steeping times, water temperatures… even cold steeping it! But nothing seems to make it taste good. Like Jillian said, it’s got a really weird, synthetic flavor to it that makes the whole thing taste frankly kind of gross.
This is the first time I’ve had a really bad experience with loose leaf tea… but I suppose it had to happen eventually!
This nice wooden box I bought in a japanese store about this premium sencha its something to talk about. As my nose detected the smell of the Sencha i knew it was a quality tea, the smell is something to remember, a little spicy and a little sweet, has that perfect sense of humor the green teas have, the mixture.
I had bad experiences with other normal sencha teas that taste too much to seaweed or it dont taste at all, but in this case, it was great. In the aroma you can perfectly smell that characteristic thing of all sencha and when you try it i promise it would be a green tea that will warm your soul a little :) i reccomend it.
This is definitely in your face flavoured tea – but a nice one. Ceylon tea, very nice base, strong but not bitter or tanninic and a lot of flavour. The flavouring does not seem too artificial to my tastebuds, though I am on expert on cranberry. It reminded me in strength and character of some russian brand (no idea which, packaging was in Cyrillic) flavoured teas, though perhaps this was nicer.
Received from a friend in Italy. A perfectly serviceable vanilla tea, but the flavour of the vanilla is not quite potent enough to stand up to milk, which I always use for black tea. Perhaps it would be better without milk… I sweetened my cup with agave nectar and enjoyed this as a morning tea. It’s not as bracing as Earl Grey, so I would suggest as a mild, smooth afternoon tea. Good, but not as creamy as I had hoped.
Not only does this tea taste great, but it is great for its original purpose, staying up for long periods of religious meditation. I often stay up for hours just sitting and thinking, and this tea makes you feel awake, but not jittery or how caffeine makes you feel. Regardless, this tea is a great blend of sweet and savory (i especially like the hints of vanilla). I highly recommend this to all fans of traditional teas.
