I gave it a low rating because I don’t like flavored black teas – take that into consideration. I was given the tea bag which does not contain an ingredients list, so I did not know this was black tea.

fruit tea with honey and lemon this time. not my favourite, bit too sour for my taste. than again, this one have been in my collection for years now, it has possibly lost its flavour on the wait. i was actually surprised when i read it should have some vanilla in it. so i think that’s what happened. too bad.

This was a good tea, but when I steeped it, it put on a rather different colour than I expected…Adding milk did nothing to the taste, which is almost exactly like black tea, with the addition of an aftertaste.

I thought this tea would be worth a try since it’s hard to find tea with grapefruit flavour. However, this tea hasn’t convinced me. There’s a really light flavour that reminds me of grapefruit and oranges. It’s more a herbal tea.

More orange than peppermint; otherwise, generally mild-tasting. Sometimes I just want to drink something that isn’t too strong and like other Pickwick teas, this fits that bill just right.

I just ordered this to go from a small cafe. It ended up being perfectly fine. I liked that it had a light, not overwhelming, bergamot flavor. I didn’t use milk or sugar. The base tea, however, was weak. It lacked oomph.

I’m almost finished with this box, and am rather sad to see it go. It’s a warm, winter brew that is well-balanced. The orange and spices give this tea a Christmas-y taste. Which is really great when Tuesday’s acting like a Monday.

…Yuck.
I swear to God that I only steeped it for like 2-3 min. It’s awfull, I tell you.
Some things have feelings engraved to them and this has HATE blended into it.
(It’s sour, salty and astringy and taste of nothing but unloved, unprotected tea.)

There is really only one thing left to say: NEVER AGAIN!
It’s so awfull, in fact, that this will be my ratingssystems bottom!

(… Go to hell english breakfast by Pickwick)

Rabs

Wow. A “1” and a damnation. Sorry you went through that :(

Angrboda

Blended with hate. Hee! The awful ones are often the best. :p

Rijje

… I really should learn to stay away from pickwick.
But I craved tea, and it was the only one on the shelf :(

And yes, it’s awesome to be a little mad at awefull teas.
I like to type really LOUDLY on the computer… It’s fun

KeenTeaThyme

Thanks for taking one for the team so no one else has to suffer. I hope you blended up your favorite tea to rid your tastebuds of the stench!

LENA

LOL…your post had me laughing and THEN I read the comment from Rabs. Sooo funny!

I neeever saw a black tea with jasmine. Have you?
Should be packing now, we bought a new apartment, and we are moving tomorrow. (it’s actually 3 in the morning over here and I should also be sleeping) but oh well.

Back to the note.
I was not able to see the color of this tea, but I am guessing BROWN. I sniffed at the teabag (God, it’s a oldfasion teabag) and I can’t detect any jasmine at all. Took a sip or two and tried really hard to find the jasmine flavor but to no avail.

No jasmine.

Bummer. They get one star for trying. (Out of TEN!)
Black tea and jasmine… never saw that before…

Cofftea

Yep I have. Couldn’t give you a brand name off the top of my head though lol.

Angrboda

Well… It is Pickwick.

Cofftea

Angrboda, I meant yes I’ve seen one other than this. If I meant this particular tea Iwould have said, “Yes I’ve seen (or drank) this before.”

Angrboda

My comment was in reply to Rijje’s post.

Cofftea

Ah ok sorry. I didn’t catch the connection so I thought it was directed at me.

Angrboda

Pickwick is one of the most common teabag brands here. Think Lipton. Most people who have had better stop expecting ambrosia and nectar from Pickwick.

Rijje

Aww… Just moved to another place and haven’t logged on before now!
Cofftea – did you try another brand? Did that taste good?

And yes Anrboda… It IS pickwick. I don’t know what went through my head when I made it! Thank god it’s not my tea (it was on the shelf of my workplace)

Cofftea

No Rigge- I didn’t. I’m not a fan of non chai flavored blacks, sorry.

Rijje

Oh! Okay, I misunderstood your post then ;)
Well we’re opposites then. I have a hard time drinking chai for the moment.

This Tea have a strong taste of Lemon.

When I drink this Tea, I get a image in my head, of the Lemon Crescent cake (Citronhalvmåne), but with a stronger touch of Lemon.

I’m not sure, about I will drink this Tea again.
But it’s not a bad Tea.

This Pickwick bagged Tea, smells wonderful of Southern Fruits across the room!

This Tea is actually one of the best fruity Teas, I’ve tried.
No sweeteners added.

My mouth feels a little dry after this Tea, but it’s okay.
Second sip, it wasn’t dry anyway.
I think it was the combination of the Tea, and the bread I were eating.

I picked this up in Jungle Jim’s, a giant “foodie” indoor market. It’s a humble, plain tea, as billed by the bags’ description of “liquorice with Ooolong tea blend.” Ignoring the box’s instructions to brew it at an alarming 1000 C (computer translation typo?), it’s a relaxing, lightly woody brew and, at a low price, I can forgive the absence of heartiness I like in licorice.

Your standard black tea. Has a nice sharp taste to help wake you up in the morning, for the rest nothing too special. I usually like pickwick teas for their strong smells (doesn’t always transfer over to strong taste), but this one doesn’t really have that.

drank Melon by Pickwick

I’ve had nothing but water and peppermint tisane to drink since mid-morning saturday. I am absolutely dying for a cup of proper tea now. I was already yesterday, but I was still feeling delicate enough that I didn’t dare have anything with caffeine in it. The only decaf I have was given to me in swaps and they deserve more attention that I would be able to give them while sick. Today I’m down to the monumental headache that always shows up post illness, so I’m having a tentative go at a small cup of tea.

Just in case, though, I’ve chosen a cheap and mediocre one. It wouldn’t feel as much of a waste.

Mediocre or not though, you lot have NO IDEA how good this is right now!!! This could have been the worst quality tea in the world and it would still have been lovely. If this had been the first time I logged this one I would have given it a 100. I don’t care about the semi-synthetic melon or the way that the tea is only barely present underneath. Just having a cup of tea is enough, and any tea will do.

Maybe I can even have some real food today too…

JacquelineM

I hope this is the sign that you are on the road to recovery!

Luthien

Glad you’re feeling up to some tea at last. Feel better!

Grabbed 1 single bag from the TTB just because I have never had it before. It doesn’t have any scent to it. It brews a light brown. It tastes like warm water with a little lemon. Not too sure about this. It’s not gross, but it’s not good.

I’m drinking this now…grabbed a bag because I really don’t have access to much PICKWICK stuff believe it or not…

Yes, it’s bagged, but I am getting more and more lazy as the day progresses. This isn’t too bad, really. It smells like MELON scented chapstick I had when I was a kid. The aroma is the plus here…the taste is fairly average.

I’m bagging it this morning. Just to be provocative.

That is all.

JMKauftheil

Tea bags?!
May the Iron Goddess have Mercy on your soul…

Angrboda

Think the Loose Mafia is going to come after me? :p

Jillian

Le gaspeth!
;)

Angrboda

I know! I’m sure I’m some sort of traitor now or something.

JMKauftheil

Loose Mafia? You mean the Teavana employees?
They’re tough pushers.

Angrboda

Haven’t been subjected to those what with Teavana not existing in Denmark, but from what I’ve heard, they could be. ;)

Jillian

Nah, they’re just the Greedy Corporate Mafia. XD

Dan

I have to agree, we have a Teavana in the mall here. They are very expensive and I just won’t pay their prices.

JacquelineM

I learned there was a Teavana not 10 minutes from my house by car, but I’m afraid – very very afraid!! to get jumped on by the salespeople!!! A huge pet peeve of mine! I’ll stick to my lovely little local tea shop and online orders :)

wombatgirl

I’ve actually had pretty decent luck with my local Teavana. Just say no, and they go away.

Teaman

Our local Teavana sales people respond the same… ask if they can help, but I tell them I’m just looking and they leave you alone. So for me it’s the right amount of help… offer once but then no more. I wouldn’t want to walk in, look interested and have no one offer help either. While I find their quality to be good, I find their prices a bit high compared to online sales. But then they have a lease to pay and you can get the tea right away.

Robert Godden

The Loose Mafia knows who you are. Don’t start reading any long novels….

drank Christmas by Pickwick
1255 tasting notes

I’m bagging it this morning on purpose so that I can get my chores done instead of hanging around on Steepster all day, writing novel-length reviews.

In the season spirit I found this ancient bag of christmas tea which I figured I’d be able to drink without the urge to elaborate on to the usual extreme.

No clue what’s in it, but being a christmas tea I think we can all make some educated guesses. I find that it smells like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and dentist. No, really. That smell when you walk into a dentist’s clinic. There’s something orange-y underneath also, I think.

It kind of tastes like dentist too. You know that stuff they use when they polish the teeth? Imagine that cinnamon-flavoured. I think, though, that if the bags hadn’t been as old as they are, the dentist-y flavour would have been different, hopefully not present at all. I’ll finish my cup because I need it, but I can’t rate it higher than this.

takgoti

Tea that reminds me of the dentist’s office would make me a little depressed.

Pickwick used to be my grandmother’s tea of choice, so there is a sentimental element to my opinion.
Good with some milk, if you are into that sort of thing.

Cofftea

Yay for sentimental tea even if it isn’t superior!:)
