drank Dutch tea blend by Pickwick
330 tasting notes

I’ve got a bit of a tickle in the lungs this morning, so tea is in order (when is it not, though?). I received a single teabag of this in a card from a Ravelry aquaintence, and I don’t have many other black teas here at work this morning.

Not much of a scent to it when I opened the teabag. It wasn’t sealed very well, so I supposed the aroma may have dissapated. Once brewed, it does have a nice scent to it – the label says it’s “Oranje Pecco” which I assume is orange pekoe. Besides the words “Dutch tea blend” the rest of the wrapper is in Dutch.

I took a sip of the straight tea before adding anything, and it’s fairly pleasant. I wouldn’t fuss about drinking it with no sugar or cream. But, it’s a workaday morning, so sweetening is a must. A single packet of Splenda is enough to really bring out the taste. I know the “orange” in the name doesn’t mean it’s been flavored with orange, but this does have a slight citrus taste to it. Added the creamer tub. Hmm… a little bit of creamsicle now.

Not bad for a teabag that looked like it was pretty much dust.

I wouldn’t go hunt this down to buy a box for myself, but if it was one of a limited selection at a restaurant, I’d order it.

drank Smooth Chai by Pickwick

I’ve tried many brands of chai…this one is VERY good. Good balance of spices, and the rooibos is a fine addition. Overall it’s a very enjoyable Chai, especially with cream and sugar.

drank Minty Morocco by Pickwick
1300 tasting notes

Colour: Dark Brown (coffee coloured)
Smell: Minty cinnamon heaven.

A minty and refreshing brew with a little spicyness. The liquorice is quite strong despite it being a more background flavour and I really dislike it. (I am not a liquorice fan at all in tea’s). It’s not undrinkable but just not to my taste, without the liquorice I think it would have been delicious.

drank Smooth Chai by Pickwick
1300 tasting notes

Another one off tea chosen at random from my stash.

This is a nice reddy brown colour when brewed without creamer and goes the usual tea colour with creamer added. I usually don’t drink tea with sugar or creamer but made an exception today (with the creamer at least).

Smells like a typical Chai, looks like a typical Chai and also tastes like a typical Chai. Cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and clove all noticeable in taste and smell. I am not a huge Chai fan because of the ingredients, while I love Cinnamon I am not so sure about cardamom and clove. And with Chai it’s the cardamom that is usually most noticeable.

Nothing special about this tea but I feel I am judging it slightly unfairly since I am not a Chai fan.

drank Chocolate Mint by Pickwick
5 tasting notes

I loved the smell of this tea once I poured the water… taste wise, however, it was like peppermint tea with a bitter undertone. I then waited until the tea is room temperature, and this is when it tasted like mint dark chocolate… bitter then sweet with a hint of mint.

drank Rooibos by Pickwick
2012 tasting notes

This is really good because it is a red tea with “spices” but it isn’t clear which spices. If it were a plain rooibos, I think this one would be too plain. But the addition of the spices is great. They could have added more to my taste!

I didn’t get a hint of grapefruit or orange – I think there are better citrus teas out there that use more dried citrus in the blend.

I found this tea very bitter. Perhaps it is the acai berry.

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.

drank Genuine Green Tea by Pickwick

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.

My personal favorite when it comes to rooibos. My experience is that it gets even better when you let it steep for a longer period of time.
