Well, at least I THINK it was Monk’s blend … I have room for just one biscuit tin of teabags on my desk, and I had made some little fill-it-yourself sachets and stuck them in a baggie and they filtered down to the bottom of the tin and I’m not sure how long they were there. Some cheapie mint foil bags have seemed to permeate the whole mess …
…but if it was what it was, despite gross neglect and mistreatment, the aroma was still quite pleasant and it was a gentle little un-tea for a cloudy lunch hour.
…and the moral to this little cautionary tale is…
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.
Received from a friend in Italy. I enjoyed this tea sweetened with agave nectar and no milk, and it was very good. A good balance of fruity sweetness and nice Ceylon black tea. I am unfamiliar with the brand, but I would put Mlesna on the same level as Bigelow or Stash tea for quality.
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.
It is just a black tea with no detectable apple flavor. Although the tea bag smelled strongly of apple this did not translate into tea aroma or flavor.
Most fruit MlesnA teas seem to have a strong rose flavor. While itself a nice flavor it makes it hard to differentiate between various fruit teas and this one was no exception. Nice fruit/rose blend with a strong flavor perfect for afternoon pick me up.
Nice black with distinct chocolat flavor that is not too sweet. I prefer their Earl Grey Chocolat better but that is just a personal taste.
Very smooth black tea with very little tanning bitterness.
As the name implies plain ol’ black tea. Although I generally dislike black tea this one was quite mild and had a nice nutty flavor and texture.
No particular flavor to this one, tastes like a mild black, a bit on the sweet side. Not bad in any way, just not worth buying or brewing, simply nothing special.
Quite a delicious mix. White peach is very strong while Earlygrey could have been a bit stronger. I also did not like the amount of bitterness on the first brew but I think it was just my excessive steep time. Second brew of the same tea bag provided a very mellow white peach flavor tea.
Very nice black, has a strong sweet “dessert-like” flavor like an orange added to desserts (not to be confused with candied orange peel) very nice indeed.
Rose flavor very pronounced, peach taking a secondary seat in this taste concoction. Still makes for a pleasant early morning black.
Amazing flavor of melon with this black tea, it must really be my first melon tea. It was such a surprise and then I drank 5 cups one after the other, just could not get enough of it, pity the sample box only has one of each.
I am not able to pin the flavor. It tastes like a very mild black with no tannin bitterness at all and is nice with milk. Seems like a very light desert tea. Not unpleasant, but without being able to associate the flavor with something in my mind it seems like there is a mental gap that affects the tea drinking experience.
Very yummy. Earl Grey is my favorite tea and when mixed with the flavor of chocolate makes a great combination. I would like to have tasted more of the Bergamot in it but oh well, it is a good one nevertheless and the whole tea pot was gone in 20 minutes.
Mild black tea with a very fragrant Rose flavor and taste. A very pleasant way to start my day.
Was quite a strong tea for a fruit tea, the smell and taste of strawberry was very well pronounced, but the peach component was none existant as I did not even know it was in the mix until I translated the word “momo” which means peach apparently.
Second brew was much more mild with no black tea bitterness and was very enjoyable.
Without much experience with black teas I can only say it was definitely a mild one, without too much tannin bitterness. My partner also commented he picks up some lavender notes in it.
Had this tea at MlesnA Tea House in Kyoto. It was so good it made me cry a little. I think it is about time I confess to myself that I am not necessarily a tea connoisseur because what I love most about my teas are the flavorings. I don’t care much for black teas and get bored quickly when drinking only green tea, but I have a flavored or fruit tea almost every day and when I find a really good one it is an out of this world taste experience for me.
And so it was with Snowy Apple Pie. First upon pouring it I am greeted with a sweet apple cinnamon aroma raising from my cup and filling my nostrils. Then comes the taste test, majority of flavored teas are nothing but bitter (pardon the pun) disappointments. But this one came through, not necessarily loud and clear, but ever so subtly and at the same time also unmistakably, it was indeed like eating a cinnamon and apple pie but in a liquid form. I guess one could add sugar and milk to complete this taste mirage, but I was content with it as it was, subtle beautiful flavor.
Really strong scent and pretty strong flavour. Not my favourite Earl Grey. Tastes ok with some milk.
I believe Culinary Teas sells this brand in bulk, which is what I have. I’m on the tail end of a pound, so it’s starting to get a little old, but still a fruity favorite. In the summer, I ice it down and add a little extra grenadine syrup.
It smelled lovely but the taste left a lot to be desired. It was quite bitter for a Ceylon so I had to add milk to make it drinkable. It’s flavoured with something that sort of vaguely tastes like maple syrup, but is more strangely synthetic than anything else.
This Canadian is not impressed.
