181 Tasting Notes
I first bought this from First Class Teas but this time I bought it from Aurora. It’s a fantastic black tea with a really interesting flavour and it doesn’t need milk at all
I have this quite regularly at home as a standard black tea. It’s pretty good really, and my housemate Paul was pleased because I brewed it good and strong
I made this using my infuser so I’d just gt one cup. Left it slightly longer than I normally would, and it was strong but sill not bitter. What a lovely way to finish the evening
Brought back from holiday by some friends, I was initially put off by it looking a bit like cloudy pond water. But it is a nice gentle blend with anise and bilberry taste well balanced with the taste of the tea. You can’t drink this with milk – I did try it once but it wasn’t pleasant!
Using almost boiling water, it took 2 1/2 minutes to brew, and it tasted sweet and fantastic. Any more and it would have got bitter, and this is quite sensitive to brewing time in my experience. Maybe I should use cooler water, I’ll keep experimenting
I drink this a lot at work. I will not tell you every time I do it, it seems a bit unnecessary
I don’t think I have explained… the ingredients in this are Ginger, Pu-erh tea, cloves, chinese date and apple. And it’s still good. I will drink this every day at work now until the packet is gone.
Unlike the darjeeling earlier, I prepared this well, using water at well under boiling point and leaving it for around two minutes. So gooood!
Last year’s first flush darjeeling is starting to lose some of its fresh sweetness, but it’s still one of my favourites. On this occasion I brewed it too long on the first brew and not long enough on the second one, so I was slightly disappointed. I’ll have to drink it again tomorrow and do it better that time!
This was another tea I had at a friend’s house. It is good loose leaf material, with Ceylon and Chinese green tea in it. Not sure whether ginger goes well with green tea or not, it’s definitely good with black tea. I’ll have to try it again. I know I like this tea, but I’m just not sure quite how much
