Can be quite strong if not prepared just right. Best without milk. A good once-in-a-while tea. I should try it cold some time…

Brewed it a little longer and drank it accompanying a light meal of cheese, cold cuts and pate on crackers. Marvelous fit.

I’m usually not a big fan of instant tea, but this one, stolen from my mother’s cupboard, is actually quite nice, and will probably be a hit in the summertime (if I can make it last that long, that is).
I’d advise against the three teaspoons of instant tea per serving as suggested in the can, though. Two teaspoons is enough, otherwise it’ll be way too sweet.

The flower on that tin totally looks like a cat face.

Water just short of boiling and a long steep time makes for a very strong tea. As always, no sugar and no milk. Just the ticket!

This tea has a very strong after-taste of bergamot which I do like during the day, but I prefer to keep it a little bit under control in the evening.
That is why I brew it quite lightly in these occasions (around 2 minutes for one teabag in a cup).
Delicious.

I don’t drink a lot of moroccan mint, because I don’t like gunpowder. That said, I did enjoy this tea: there’s a great balance between green tea and peppermint, you can clearly taste both without one overpowering the other. I don’t know if it was good enough to make me want more of this tea, though.

This is the best earl grey I’ve ever had! It’s very tasteful and doesn’t have a strange aftertaste. Definitely recommended!

I was expecting some delicate green taste, so I was surprised to get an immediate impression of oolong. It’s honey-grassy, quite nice, and the taste develops and follows through. It stands up to subsequent infusions, and keeps its moreishness. Well worth buying, you can get it at Whittards without having to go to snobby expensive tea specialists. All the same, it tastes to me like a reasonably agreeable oolong.

My aunt was in Durham for July to work on her degree. Luckily, she brought me back some tea! I am fairly certain this is the tea I have, though mine is a 50 count of teabags rather than loose. I was thrown off at first by the talk of mangos and tropical fruits because I expected a black tea with rose (and nothing else) but the smell was very enticing. My grandmother thought it smelled terrible, but she mostly likes to mock my teas.

Last night, the beau and I decided to try it out. We sat around drinking tea with candles lit. Sounds romantic, right? Well, let me add that we were playing Magic. You know, the card game. Yup, we’re cool. Anyway, the tea actually impressed me. The black tea was very mild and the “troical” flavour more forward but in general it was still on the milder side. Granted, we steeped it a little weak, but I really enjoyed it. It was wonderful to sit and sip mindlessly which is exactly what I need sometimes. Definitely reliable and quite tasty, but I wouldn’t call it English Rose. I don’t know much about Rose teas but I didn’t identify any rose flavour.

bah, Magic is fun!! I still play my rpgs :)

I made a pot of this with two, heaped teaspoons brewed for four and a half minutes.

It has an aroma of pizza base and ‘pine-fresh’ disinfectant.

In the mouth it has butter, conifer sawdust, wood-smoke, the basic tea-flavour, of course; but all well-blended together with none prominent above the others. There are tiny hints of mixed, dried fruit and cut grass and the tiniest ‘bite’ – something reminiscent of white pepper or root ginger, but almost more of a feel than a taste.

For purposes of comparison, I made this exactly the same way as the Nothing But Tea Smokey Souchong I wrote up yesterday. I strongly suspect these two are the same tea – both excellent, though, and among my top favourites.

I brewed this hot last night and it has been in the fridge chilling overnight. I put sugar in this time because I find when it is chilled, it doesn’t really make it taste like sugar, it just enhances the toffee part of this tea.
