20 tasting notes

Right when I opened the bag, my nose was assaulted by an almost bacon/jerky-like smell, possibly like a cigar. Odd, but seems like it’d be good if you’re in the right mood. I steeped it with milk (hence the 5-minute steep time) as per the instructions on the bag.

I’m actually a little scared to try this because of the intense aroma.

Tastes a little like I’m drinking a cigar. Maybe if I sweeten it… Okay, I added some honey.

And I’m still underwhelmed. It might be good for people who like smoky teas, but this one’s not for me.

Oh, this tea is fantastic! It may have become my new favorite. Great with milk and some brown sugar.

I actually made two cups off of one teabag and intend to use it again tomorrow at breakfast, since this is the only bag I have of this tea. It’s delicious! Similar to London Cuppa, which is my current favorite, but it has a little more heartiness that’s hard to pin down. Excellent with milk and honey.

Bio

I hated tea growing up. Then something wonderful happened.

I was introduced to my first delicious cup of tea in Costa Rica, when my host mother made me a cup of Royal Blend by Fortnum & Mason. I was hooked.

Probably because of that first cup, black teas are my favorite. I’ll sometimes go for herbals or fruit teas if they have the right flavor, but usually they feel too weak; I’d rather just eat the fruit itself. A rooibos will almost always get a low rating from me; it’s just not my thing. Green teas are okay if iced or prepared well hot.
