A nice rooibos, not too much earthy taste. Scent is light and lovely. I would definitely steep at least 4-5 minutes next time.

I’m not experienced with tea. I have no sense of smell so the subtle flavors of tea go right by me. I can taste sweet, sour, bitter and salty. That means if there’s a bitter after taste, that is ALL I taste. I like this one. It has a smooth flavor, no biting after taste. It’s a good one to start the day out with.

I’ve tried a lot of teas for doing the Fridge Brew for iced tea, and this is one of the best!

Hm, not too crazy about this one.
To me, it just kinda tastes like a glass of hot, old oranges.

To be fair, my roommate seemed to like it – and she’s a good deal more fond of fruity/herbal teas than I am. So, ymmv.

I brewed this tea in my Keurig with 10 oz water selection. I made this with honey and then added some agave, because it tasted pretty bad. This tea does not taste like chai, pumpkin, or pumpkin spices. It just has this weird spice, and not the way that tastes good in tea. It’s a biting spice that quickly shows up and then fades to a bland black tea taste. Not going to get this again. I may try with steamed milk when I try it again.

The first few times I made this one, it didn’t taste like much of anything. Kind of a watery, plain black tea.

I made it again today, mostly because I wanted to get rid of it. I then proceeded to let it get cold because work picked up, and I made an accidental discovery in the process!

This tea is AMAZING when it’s cold. I got notes of honey, nuts, molasses, and chocolate. The flavor just kind of came to life once the heat left. I think it’s a delicate tea, and it needs to be prepared as if it’s a particularly sensitive white tea.

I plan to cold-steep it, or maybe make it iced instead next time. Either way, it’s gonna be delicious.

I’ve been itching to try this one for a while now. It says on the box that people who like Darjeeling would like it.

It doesn’t taste like Darjeeling to me at all! It has almost a smoky scent, and it has a very milky quality to it. I taste burnt corn and molasses.

Maybe I didn’t brew it correctly? I don’t hate it, it just doesn’t taste like what everyone else says it does, quite.

Flavors: Kettle Corn, Milk, Molasses

I really enjoy this Tea it has a very nice orange taste with a very slight cinnamon in the background. This is a tea that is light on taste but great on flavor. Great for people who love a semi sweet taste but not something overpowering.

I don’t love this. It tastes kind of artificial and tart. I’m sure someone could love this, especially someone who likes fruity teas. I am not that person. It’s not bad for a bagged tea, but it’s not to my taste.

I picked up a box of this while on vacation a couple of weeks ago, and am just now getting around to trying it. I think it’s gross. It’s bland, and has a weird medicinal aftertaste from the Rooibos. Celestial Seasoning’s Mandarin Orange Spice has a much better flavor. I’ll stick with that in the future.

I drink this before bed every night. A nice herbal mix that is calming and I love the minty taste. Usually nighttime teas have a very strong chamomile taste to them, but this one is really nice. I love the way the tea smells when it is steeping.

drank Chai by Twinings of London
105 tasting notes

So this is a Keurig K CUP version of this tea. This is one of the first Chai teas that I ever had when I first started drinking tea (the bagged kind) and so I have a respect for this tea, and the tea company.

The thing is, it just doesn’t have a ton of spice or flavour to me, and it always tastes a little watered down? I don’t mind the tea, at all, and it’s not BAD, but it’s not my favourite Chai. I did mix it with an iced Chai drink that had soy in it, and so it gave it a milky, extra spicy taste. That made it 10x better.

Not a bad tea, but not my favourite.

So, I needed to deep clean my french press to keep it working really well, but I was impatient and went out and grabbed a box of tea. I have been drinking nothing else since. I have two teabags left and I only got it (maybe) a week and a half ago.

On a scale from blech to yum! this tea rates in at the yummy factor. I drink it hot with a splash of milk and it is so comforting. There is this slight caramel undertone to the tea and it is never bitter. I accidentally overbrewed it one time and it still tasted like I steeped it for four minutes, so this tea is pretty forgiving. Nice when you have limited brain space after working two jobs or first thing in the morning.

I wouldn’t seek this tea out again, but I might grab it if it was on the shelves and I wanted a break from my fancier teas.

It’s not the best of Twinings’ flavoured blacks, but it’s certainly not the worst. It’s not very remarkable, not particularly tasty. I’ll drink the whole box, but I will not buy it again.

Lazy Hot Tea Toddy: This tea, Pimm’s, ginger syrup, honey, and a splash of lemon juice.

My brother bought this and I’m too broke to buy tea lately so I figured I’d try it! I’ve had most of the other Twinings teas before and they weren’t really stand out. This is probably the best one I think. I am getting a rather malty Assam flavor which I like. It left behind a sweetness that lingered in my mouth for about 10 minutes. Didn’t need any sweetener or anything creamy.

Flavors: Malt, Molasses
