This is nothing special. The addition of Saffron is kinda nice, but you need to focus to actually pick it out.
However there are those nights when “nothing special” is exactly what one wants.
So I picked this one up at the our discount store chain in Northeast Ohio(Marc’s) for about $2.50. I’ve tried their Earl Grey infusion which isn’t bad. This one’s pretty disappointing. I would say it’s more of a muddle of flavors. The nice wine like quality of the rooibos doesn’t come through and neither does the jasmine. It’s not bad though for work in a pinch quick bagged pick me up.
Saffron Fusion Earl Grey by Taja Tea provide best taste for tea lovers.
New-ish tea goals.
If I have a tea in my cupboard that has no notes, or I havnt tried it, what exactly is stopping me, eh? Get a move on! You own this tea, drink it!
This….. is chamomile. Its not bad, standard issue. I expected the saffron to add something more to it, but it didnt quite brew up that well. In the box it smells a bit roasty, but I’m not noticing anything special about it in the cup.
Still, I like to have a chamomile in my cupboard at all times.
I decided to make a pitcher of this one iced. I used the directions on the box. 3 tea bags in 4 cups boiling water, steep for 15 minutes, add ice. I used about 1 tray of ice cubes.
I love Earl Grey but have never actually made on iced. I often drink it cold though, as in it was in my cup for so long that is got cold. Which I don’t mind.
This iced tea is ok. There is a slight saffron taste, and very little bergamot taste as compared to when brewed hot. It is mostly a slightly sweet black tea taste. I did not add any sweetener to this one, but I could have. I think I may have put too much ice in it.
I love beragmot, so I am not in love with this one iced, but it is still good enough to drink.
I love how Earl Greys are open to interpretation: this one has a bright orange flavor along with a faint base note fragrance of saffron. The black tea blend is light, blending nicely with the citrus flavors. Taja Tea is marketing this as a health promoting tea due to the saffron. Is there enough saffron in each serving to truly have a health benefit? Well, let’s just brew another cup and see!
I found this at the local Winners/Home Sense store. Was totally not looking to buy tea, but of course I ended up in the tea/coffee cup area and stumbled across this tea. It had been on my shopping list forever and I didn’t think I would ever come across it in a store. But voila!!
The dry tea bags smell just of Earl Grey.
The steeped tea smells not too good. It smells of saffron and black tea, which is not a good combination. I got sad, because I love saffron almost as much as I love Earl Grey.
However, the tea totally redeemed itself of first sip. It tasted lovely strong citrous bergamot Earl Grey. You can taste the saffron notes in the background. The saffron makes the tea very smooth, and it makes the citrous “pop”.
I am happy this tea tastes much, much better than it smells!
I found this tea at a discount store and decided to take a chance. I don’t believe the claims on the box regarding saffron’s health properties, but the tea itself is delightful. It is similar to a Lady Grey, with a delicate flavour, though less orange and more Saffron (and no bitterness to speak of). I enjoyed it enough to return to the store and buy the two remaining boxes on the shelf.
Thank you Jillian for trading for this tea. The blend of saffron and mango interested me too and it was something I really wanted to taste.
I have had this for a while and over that time had many cups of it so I was surprised to see that I have not yet reviewed it. Until now that is.
Steeping time and temperature as stated on the box (despite my distaste for boiling green tea) I have followed instructions exactly.
The liquid created is burnt orange in colour with a potent juicy mango fruit smell. The fruit is not as strong as the smell (unfortunately) and there is also a little sweetness with a slight bitter and perfumey taste.
In honesty it’s hard to detect anything special about this tea when it comes to pure flavour. It’s quite tasty for a bagged tea don’t get me wrong but it’s not quite what I had in mind.
Love this tea! I buy it at Marc’s in Cleveland whenever I am in town I stock up because I have never seen it anywhere else. I brew my tea in the cup by microwaving for 2 minutes makes a perfect cup everytime!
It is a wonderful Tea and I have it in my store at heavenlytreasures22, It is an eBay Store. I love this tea as well and it works for so many health benefits!
Found this tea at Marc’s for about 2.50 a box. It’s not too shabby for a bagged tea. I’m not sure if I’ve been on the receiving end of a bigger energy boost because of the saffron, but still a tasty tea. The Assam is pretty good and I can tell that it is a darker oolong. I like that semi roasted oolong flavor to this tea. In a pinch it’s a good quick work pick me up.
Light and wonderful
I love the way this tea picks me up. If I need a little pick me up around lunch time, this is just the tea for me. The taste is mild which I prefer. I actually have used two tea bags for an extra feel good boost when preparing my taxes. Along with the benefits that come from the virtues of Saffron this is a tea I like to keep in my cabinet.
I also leave the tea bag in my cup until finished, I want to make sure I get all I can from such an inviting tea.
I really liked this tea a lot. It was actually my first time trying Saffron tea. I do taste the earl grey but that sort taste reminds of an organic oolong tea I’ve had a while back.
The tea was OK, more saffron-ny than Earl Grey. Here is the part that freaks me out though: what is in it?! Is it even legal not to list the ingredients? Apparently there is saffron and bergamot (indistinguishable in the flavor). The label claims that is an “herbal infusion”, which eliminates Camelia sinensis. I drank it after drinking some strong black tea, so I could be wrong but it doesn’t seem caffeinated. How do they get away with this?
I just love the Saffron infused Chamomile tea! But I only bought it once at Ross’s Dress for Less and can’t find it any more!!! Bummer…such a great tasting tea!
I was attracted to this tea by how unusual it is – saffron is an expensive substance and rarely used in teas. Regardless of how much was actually in there, I was curious enough to give this a try. It has a nice fruity smell and if the tea doesn’t taste as fruity at least it doesn’t have that generic tropical fruit flavour either. There’s a hint of sweetness from the mango and a slightly bitter herbal flavour which might or might not be the saffron mixed with the green tea. It’s a pleasent combination that manages to be something other than the usual bagged fare.
Very good and satisfactory, has healing capabilities. Excellent
This is the WORST tea I have ever had!! I am so upset that this company has ripped me off! I am very familiar with Saffron, and there is basically no saffron in this tea. The box is deceiving! No where on the package does it state the ingredients in the tea, all it does is teach you about saffron. I will follow up on this company, and I will demand my money back. In my opinion, half a strand of saffron mixed with cheap chamomile is NOT acceptable!!!! My fellow tea drinkers, If you really want to benefit your health by adding saffron to your diet, buy some good quality saffron and put a couple strands in your favourite tea. DO NOT GIVE THIS COMPANY TOP DOLLAR FOR CHAMOMILE CRAP TEA!!!!!!!!!!!! RIP OFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!
