6 Tasting Notes

VERY aromatic, very tasty, good plain or with honey — all the good cooling volatiles remain in the leaves. Wants a full 2 teaspoons to brew a full-tasting cup. Doesn’t get bitter if left to steep too long, as some peppermint teas do.

Have yet to try Upton Teas, but from what you say it sounds good. I personally never have tea with honey, did you notice a positive difference with it or only slightly?

EXCELLENT. Good for colds, flus, or just cold days, good iced, good with honey and without. Real, spicy ginger flavor. I get two, sometimes three or four brewings out of a couple teaspoons of dried root.

Nothing fancy, but a very good decaf green tea.

Too much vanilla flavor for my taste. Drinkable with milk and honey.

Good clean and simple Ceylon flavor. Nothing fancy. My go-to breakfast black tea, the only thing I drink enough of to buy yearly.

Excellent. One of the best Earl Grey teas I’ve ever had — the bergamont flavor is present and strong but doesn’t overwhelm the smooth, clean black tea flavor.

1 tsp leaves, 212F water, steeped to taste.
