8 Tasting Notes
Cinnamon is one of my favourite flavors, so I love this tea. The apple comes through more as background sweetness than as actual apple flavor, which to my tastebuds balances the cinnamon nicely. I usually let this steep for at least five minutes, or it’s too bland for me. I’ve not noticed any bitterness, as noted below.
The first tea I remember drinking was Constant Comment, but I hadn’t been able to have it in years as black tea often gives me headaches. Finding that they now make a green version had me through the moon before I even tried it! So I’ll admit that my rating is as much for the nostalgia as anything else, but I also truly think this is a very pleasant cup of tea. Love the spiciness. Just don’t let it steep forever, as it gets as astringent as any green.
Sometimes it takes me several cups before I decide how I really feel about a tea, but this one hit me right from the first sip. Very clean green flavor.
Other than the Earl Grayer, this is the only of RoT’s flavored green teas that I can drink. While it’s nice enough, and the honey flavor pleasant, it isn’t something I bother to keep at home; just my go-to cup at Panera. It does hold up fairly well to a long steep, but some bitterness doesn’t bother me.
A nice green tea with only some of matcha’s fullness. Given how expensive matcha can be, though, I’ll take it!
I love sour cherries but don’t much care for the sweet, and so was worried that this tea would be too sweet. But the intense cherry flavor strikes a nice balance, and it’s wonderful iced.
Like most Earl Greys, I have to be careful not to let this steep too long or the bergamot gets overwhelming for my taste buds. It’s a good wake-me-up cup, however, and a necessity in my tea stash at work.
Hands down the best green tea I’ve had. Light and grassy and not at all bitter (as long as it gets only a quick steep, that is). I’m definitely partial to Japanese greens, but suspect this would be well liked by anyone who enjoys green tea in general.
