This tea tastes refreshing in the morning.
Nice cuppa tea,infused leaves and added a littrle milk. Nice in the morning
This is a nice stand-alone black tea. Medium Strength, Medium flavors of aromatic floral and bergamot – maybe a bit on the lighter side of medium, actually. But regardless this is a really gratifying cup!
While this isn’t my favorite Darjeeling I am going to rate it higher than most on this specific tea. I don’t think it’s that bad. It’s not overly memorable but it’s tasty. It’s a nice standard Darjeeling to have in your stash to share with anyone anytime of day! It’s slightly crusty and slightly misty with a bit of satisfying astringency. A fair Darjeeling!
Light refreshing white tea with a subtle cherry flavour. The scent of cherry is quite strong before brewing. Afterwards the scent and flavour is more subtle but I think it works well.
I have found it’s best to steep for around 2-3 minutes, any longer and the taste can become slightly bitter.
One of mine and my fiances personal favourites!
Great tasting rooibos with a stronger than expected strawberry flavour. The strawberry is pleasant tasting – great in an afternoon with a biscuit or two. Naturally sweet.
My co-workers commented on the nice strawberry scent in our office after I’d brewed this. If you like fruity teas then I would definitely recommend!
Grabbed the first thing I could find to combat the taste of the last tea I drank!

Although I do not particularly like this tea, is still a nice tea for a late afternoon sip. The flavor is not as strong as other Earl Greys, but the bergamot is noticeable.
It’s a bright and warm day in Leicester today so I coaxed my husband into helping me do some spring cleaning. Only going to manage downstairs today but it will be a good start, sort my house out for when it gets looked after at the end of the month before I go on holiday to Brighton.
I forgot all about this tea until I pulled it out of the back of my cupboard this morning along with my last tin of baked beans (which was used for breakfast). A delicious pineapple and coconut instant tea drink that can be brewed hot or cold as it’s an instant mix. Very delicious and non time consuming in a pinch.
Full review tomorrow April 5th on http://sororiteasisters.com/ but here are my snippets:
Oh yes, this is an oolong after my heart! Organic China Oolong from Whittard of Chelsea has every bit of that smokiness I adore in a dark oolong and a berry sweet note that drives me wild! The aroma alone is intoxicating, I would wear this as perfume, not that it tastes like perfume at all but it smells so dreamy!
The cup steeps into an amber vision of beauty with a clear view to the bottom of the cup. The first note I pick up is a light honey note, with a backdrop of maple, and wood. This is a very sweet cup considering its dark smoked nature.
I also get a brandied candied flavor in the tea, a brothy sensation in the mouthfeel that is welcoming and warming.
This tea does not really conjure up feelings of sitting by a campfire as much as it does feelings of walking in the deep woods sipping a hardy grog from a chalice or a canteen perhaps. It makes me feel more like Robin Hood than Roy Rodgers!
Finishing up this sample :D with a toasted tomato sandwich and leftover bunnyday chocolates. I love a good earl grey first thing.
The bagged version of this is what I’ve taken to drinking at my in-laws’ house. It’s rather old (best before date was 18 months ago), but it’s still better than Twinings Everyday!
Lately I just haven’t felt up to evaluating tea, so I’ve been sticking mainly to my old reliable strong bagged black + soymilk + sugar. But now we’re in the throes of a cold snap and I’m drinking cup after cup to keep warm, so I figured it was about time I tried a loose tea from my stash that I haven’t reviewed.
I still don’t have the vocabulary to describe this one, but I really like it! “Earthy” is probably a good word for it. It’s smooth and kind of sweet and savory at the same time, and it went nicely with the sourdough rye toast I had with it. I happily drank the whole cup without even considering adding milk or sweetener. I think I would prefer it a bit stronger, so I’ll just have to watch how much water I put in my cup next time.
This is a great EG! I had all sorts of tea plans for this morning and threw them all out the window because this one said “breakfast” – it’s breakfast OBVS. ;)
Another pot for breakfast! I can see why people like this (it was voted one of Whittard’s top 3 teas by customers) because it’s not bad with milk & sugar. Only 79 more grams to go…
Definitely better with soymilk & half a teaspoon of sugar per cup. Better, but still not that great. And I have more than half of the 125g bag to get through – anyone want to help out?
Had another pot today prepared similarly to last time, except I decanted all the liquor into cups rather than leaving the remainder stewing with the leaves. Got some harshness again (though not as bad as yesterday) which was ameliorated by adding sweetener. Drank both steepings black – will try the first with soymilk next time.
Made a pot of this for breakfast with my porridge (oatmeal with raisins, chopped apple, and walnuts, if you wanted to know). I’m still a bit awkward getting my tea ready at the same time as my food even when using my usual bagged tea, but today I guess I felt up to the task of trying loose.
I’m probably not following protocol for tasting, so I won’t get too into specifics, but for all brews I found it a bit harsh yet low on flavor, if that makes any sense. Brewed more lightly it was bland, but drinkable after it cooled a bit. The stronger brew was almost shockingly bitter/astringent – it was improved with soymilk & sugar, but still pretty meh. Tried a second steep, which was much of the same, though a bit milder.
Now about half an hour after finishing, I can still taste a sort of tarry buildup on the back of my throat, as if I’d been smoking. I don’t think I’ll be buying this again.
way to go on me that i waited that long before drinking this tea. let’s see, that trip to london was in ‘05 and i started drinking this in ’12 … no harm done. it’s still good.
A pretty good fruit infusion that lifts you up. I especially like the tangy taste.
I’ll have to try it it cold next time, I bet it makes a great iced tea for those scorching summer days.
Hello! For my first tasting note I thought I’d start with the tea that really kicked off my
The tea smells wonderful; when I first got the packet I spent the next few hours holding it against my face and sniffing it. It smells that good: warm toffee and nuts. I remember wishing that there was a perfume of it.
The last few times I’ve had this tea I’ve found it very easy to overbrew, but it didn’t help that I probably put too much tea in the mug to begin with. This time I took more care and it’s made a real difference to the colour – more of a golden brown than the almost-black I had before.
The toffee-nut smell isn’t so strong anymore now the tea is brewed, there’s more of a malty aroma instead. After tasting it I think I could have made it a fair bit stronger with the shorter brewing time. The toffee seems more of an afterthought than anything else, but it builds up while you drink more.
This wasn’t an amazing cup of tea, but I’m still experimenting with strength and brewing times. If nothing else, I’d keep it for the smell. And thank you, Melissa, for the tea.
