17 Tasting Notes

I’m thrilled with this kettle. The temps are accurate and it’s fast to heat up. It also has a small profile; I keep it right on my desk so I can have tea at any time of the day.

One suggestion: it would be awesome if the kettle could emit a small chime when the water has reached the right temp. Sometimes I get distracted and forget I had water heating. This would probably need to be optional, but it would be a really nice option to have!

This is such an easy to drink tea. It’s technically a black tea, but I actually group it in with (and prepare it like) oolongs. It’s brisk without being bitter, and edges toward sweetness.

I don’t typically like flavoured black teas (other than Earl Grey and bergamot-based teas), and Marco Polo is a rare exception. It’s flavourful without being overwhelming, making it easy to drink, and perfect for a cold morning.

This is my new favorite Green, hands down. It’s the perfect mix between Harney’s Chinese Flower (a delicious, but overwhelming green) and my previous favorite, Twining’s standard Green. The citrus is light, but present, and it brings just the right amount of flavor. With a bit of honey, you absolutely cannot go wrong!

It’s a classic. With a few spoonfuls of sugar, it really is a great breakfast tea. What more is there to say?

Wow! I am really impressed. I’m drinking it right now so I can’t attest to how fast it relaxes and puts you to sleep, but the taste alone is great compared to a pure chamomile tea or similar teas from other brands. This is definitely my new bedtime tea!
