12 Tasting Notes

Funny how I’m drinking Golden BREAKFAST at 10:30 pm. I do drink it with breakfast sometimes and it’s always good. I thought it might help tame the outrageous burning of my mouth from my dinner and it did. (Also, if I had a loose leaf mango or peach I would so try the Rex Barrett’s idea above. Alas, I don’t despite the two and a half cupboards full of tea.)

I was a little surprised to note that the taste of this reminds me of the iced tea you can get in restaurants around here. Not exact but oddly similar.
I steeped for four minutes because this is my first time drinking it. Added some honey after drinking a little, it was good but I like the teas I drink at night to be a little sweeter. I might have this with breakfast tomorrow without anything added.
(Also, I feel kind of awesome having this. Like I’m helping someone out by drinking their tasty tea that they were paid right for. Very cool.)

You know I used to buy the equal exchange coffee at my church….huh…had no idea there was tea too.

The smell of the cinnamon while steeping reminded me of big red gum (which I don’t like) so I went for a shorter steeping time. I didn’t realize we were out of milk until I finished making it so I simply put extra honey in.
It’s good, but I don’t think I’ll get it again. (Unless the milk tones down the cinnamon and brings out the other spices, I can’t really taste any of the others. Cinnamon is good but if I wanted cinnamon tea that’s what I’d be drinking.)
[May update later when I’ve gotten some milk.]

I had to sweeten this a little but I think I may have steeped it a little much for this particular brand. I’ll have to have another cup of tea to make sure [:)]. Anyway, this is fairly good. Not my favourite earl grey but, for a bagged tea, it’s more than acceptable. It does have a definite citrus taste (not too strong) and the bergamot taste is a little stronger, in my opinion, than the Twinings Earl Grey.

I’m drinking this with a little bit of honey. I know I drank it before, but I have some vague recollection of wanting it sweeter. Anyway, it’s sweet with a strong fruity taste, though I can’t quite pinpoint exactly what fruit I’m tasting.
Smells very nice (and strong, I made one cup and the whole kitchen smells like it now) and it’s a very pretty dark red.

I’m drinking this right now. A good morning tea. The smell (pre-brewing) really reminds me of Earl Grey but the bergamot is not nearly as strong of a flavour as most Earl Greys I’ve drank.
A bit bitter, I think I’ll brew it a little less next time. Or I might just add some milk as another taster mentioned. (I don’t drink tea with milk often so I can’t (yet!) tell right off if a tea would be good with it.) Added a little honey.

I love this tea lately. I haven’t been posting any ’what’s in your cup’ things because this is all I’ve been drinking.
I like it with a little milk (I don’t know how much I kind of wing it) and some, more often than not, some honey (also unmeasured). I skip on the honey if I’m not wanting something too sweet. I don’t really taste the coconut much but my sister who doesn’t like coconut says she can taste it quite well.

This is very lemony. Thankfully, I happen to like lemon a lot.
