12 Tasting Notes
Really fond of this tea for an early afternoon pick-me-up. The orange is a little strong, but the ginger plays well with it.
This is a solid breakfast tea. Fairly smooth, though a little bland. Very good with a touch of honey.
A good strong Irish Breakfast tea, but not overpowering. Lovely on its own, which is more than I can say for some of the Irish Breakfast tea I’ve tried.
Used an extra teaspoon of this today; made for a bracing, full cup of tea. Robust but not too bitter. I brew mine for just over three minutes. Also good with a splash of milk.
I don’t care for this tea at all. It’s very pretty loose leaf tea — full blossoms, dried orange peels — but multiple efforts to steep it at different temperatures and times only leads to the same bland, somewhat bitter taste for me.
Mixing this with the Samurai Chai Mate at the moment; it’s like a mouthful of red hots, but soothing. Really great for a quick pick-me-up.
A bit standard for an Earl Grey, but always quick and easy to brew. Not the first one I reach for, but sometimes hits the spot perfectly.
