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 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 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.

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.

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 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!

I brewed it at 85°C 1minute, drowning the tea infuser into the water.

As I slurp introducing air ah so noisily it revealed flowery nutty flavour with more precence and aftertaste than most of the top noch DJ’s I’v tasted thus far. This was the case for the batch of 2009-2010.

Btw, I prefer red tea classification over to the black.

I am sorry I messed up and added my review to the tea info box aswell. I’ll behave in the future.

Finnish tea I received in a travelling tea box. The black tea is nice and strong, the fruit flavours are tart rather than sweet. I don’t know about the “cheery” part, but it’s a nice cuppa tea on a rainy day.
