237 Tasting Notes
Twigs and dust in the loose leaf version…. But nice nutty flavor.
I was surprised at how much I liked this. Not usually a fan of fruity tea, but it works here. Having failed to read the ingredients, I was not expecting peppermint and ginger. I didn’t smell them either (just the fruits), so the taste was a surprise. It really grew on me after a few sips, though!
Man, I need to get some better teas here at work. . . . For most of the week all my true teas sit unloved in my cupboard, because I’m avoiding caffeine in the evening. It’s sad.
Actually a good tea! It has whole leaves and stuff!
Making it from a single steeps packet this time. This one’s a bit dusty too, though less so than the other two black teas I’ve opened lately. Tea Forte, I’m not sure “loose leaf” means what you think it means.
Seems less flowery this time around. More bergamot flavor.
From Saturday. Another packet of crumbles and dust, where the picture implied otherwise…. I must have done something wrong, since I could taste next to nothing here. Black pepper might have agreed with me. Instead, my cup tasted like milky water with a little chair flavoring…. This was despite giving it a full 5 min to brew. Guess it might need even longer?
From Friday. The contents of the single steep packet were pretty crumbly—not like the leaves illustrated on the box front. Nonetheless it tasted nice and robust, a little tart. I enjoyed it a few times over with milk and a touch of sugar.
The jasmine was overwhelming on the first brew.
Second time was more balanced.
