I love this entire set of white Nordqvist teas. When I don’t want to make loose leaf tea, I can just pop a bag in a mug, and set my Keurig to run some plain water in there. And considering how fast I can down a mug of this stuff, I wouldn’t want to spend so much time on it! This is a very light, lovely pear flavored tea. There’s a bit of other flavors in there, just to give it an extra bit of fruity flavor.
I would move to Finland to have more of this tea all the time.

I tasted this tea in the teabag version. The name of this tea promises something very special, but I was disappointed. Firt, the smell isn´t very original. I tasted this tea raw (meaning without milk/honey/sugar) and I wasn´s impressed. To me, it tasted like regular assam tea. It was ok, but I could´t find any real aroma notes that would have really spiced the tea.

Flavourings don’t fit together and are way too sweet.

It’s a pretty nice black tea. The packaging and name are also cute.

The smoky taste is quite strong but doesn’t completely override other nuances.

The flavourings override the taste of the actual tea, so in the end it doesn’t really taste much like anything.

Pretty good everyday sencha, this tea is definitely one of the ones that I consume the most.

I quite like this tea. The blueberry muffin aroma is not too strong, and the tea smells lovely.

A cup at a cafe. A fruity black tea. Not too strong and nice orangeish brown color. Nothing exciting.

A cup of this at University’s cafeteria. It was interesting. I immeadiately wanted to know what was in it. Bancha gave it a nice touch. I migh consider buing it.

I wish I had never bought this. I think it’s related to China Pai Mu Tan. Leaves and the tea looks and behaves the same and I hate both teas. I also think Aloe Vera disagrees with my taste buds. I like citrusy flavors so I don’t think the problem is in grapefruit flavoring or lemon peel. But under the added flavors is the same Pai Mu Tan which I dislike. I’m probably gonna toss this one.

This was my first white tea and I was so disappointed. It was a bit expensive and I had high expectations. It has awfully lot of crushed big leaves in it and suprisingly few leaves and tips that look like white tea to me. I taste mostly those bitter crushed leaves in the tea.

This time I tried picking the best looking leaves and tips but it didn’t improve the taste much, but this time tea looked like white tea. I’m considering tossing this tea, because I very rarely drink it and don’t like it.

Tea becomes dark brownish (stays clear of course) when it gets cold.

A cup at work earlier today. I must have accidently steeped too long. I’m too used to drinking tea at home and having a timer and no distraction. I’ll have to do better next time.

I tried the teabag version of this tea, and the teabag said two minutes steeping time. I didn´t like this tea so much eitheran dwrote a rewiew about it.

A cup of tea bag Emperor’s bride. I was expecting it would be terrible but it was ok. Not great but it was ok. I like loose tea version much much much better.

A nice green tea. The “other” flavours are not too pronounced. A warning, despite the name I do not think, from previous experiences, that this is low in caffeine!
