19 Tasting Notes
YUM! It’s a great pairing. I wouldn’t usually want to mix Silver Needles with anything, but this works.
It has this dry and clean taste, and I mean that in a very good way. The earthiness of the flowers really compliments with brightness of the tea. There is some depth in the tea, but it not overly complicated or picky. I usually shy away from floral teas, but this one keeps my attention more than others.
This is a weekend teas. When I have errands or work to do at home, I’ll brew up a big pot and drink it all.
One of the smokier Lapsang Souchongs I’ve tried. I liked it. I first got into this tea because it seem strong, and manly, to a guy who used to drink a lot of coffee. If there was a tea that could grunt, this would be it.
The longer you steep it, the more the smokiness overpowers the tea.
Not the best out there, and I like their Irish Breakfast a lot more. But, for the price and availability, it’s a good find for Lapsang souchong.
While the taste isn’t the most wonderful in the world (I always add honey to it), I keep this around because it does makes me feel better.
I first tried this mate years and years ago — and I found it at Whole Foods because a friend recommended Yerba Mate, and this was my first experience with it.
It’s good. The flavors match well. It’s nice hot or over ice, and doesn’t really get bitter. Still, that said, if you didn’t have a lot of internal motivation to specifically drink mate, I’d have to say that the same flavors in this blend work as well, or better, with green tea.
With my first sip, I got a nasty mouthful of bergamot. (It was a sample and I suspect it might have been a little old. Maybe the stale bergamot was stronger) But, the tea really mellowed out after and at the last sip, I was craving more. Strongly flavored.
I just didn’t care for it. Couldn’t taste much blueberry and had a really bitter aftertaste.
Maybe because this is one of the first teas I ever tried and enjoyed, but I really love this tea. Malty, smooth, consistently good. It’s not so delicious as to make you re-think your life, but I’ve always gotten enjoyment from it.
I had a sample of this and it was fantastic. One of the best black teas I’ve had in a while. Highly recommend trying it.
I really enjoyed this tea. I’m a coconut fiend, and I’ve searched around for a great coconut flavored tea. This, so far, is the best. It was wonderful hot, but especially delicious iced.
