I got very excited about the idea of this tea, but unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. There’s something slightly off about the pumpkin flavor of this tea- possibly the issue is that it tastes more like squash and less like pumpkin pie. The spice notes were very faint. This is not a tea I would repurchase.
53 Tasting Notes
Surprisingly good! I wasn’t sure how well grapefruit would sync up with black tea, but it proves to create a delightful morning tea- a nice variation from Earl Grey for those who like a bit of citrus.
This is the tea that got me hooked on loose-leaf teas- a nice blackberry black tea that’s not too sweet or fake-tasting.
This is a good fruity black tea, but it is not the most flavorful that Whittard offers. Sometimes it’s difficult to taste the mango, and it’s just not as lush as some of the others.
One of the few teas that I will drink in bags, rather than loose- this tea has one of the nicest strawberry flavors I’ve tasted. The flavor is not at all fake, just sweet summer strawberry.
I love Lady Grey tea, and I love Twining’s best of all- it’s basically a lighter version of traditional Earl Grey. I’ve found this to be a very versatile tea- drinkable at any time of day.
I’ve never been able to get into this tea. I’ve never really understood black/green tea blends, because they have to be brewed so differently. It seems like one of them is always going to be suffering, and I didn’t find anything especially wonderful about this blend’s taste. I’d rather have either a black tea, a green tea, or an oolong- just not all together.
If I’m getting a cup of tea at Starbucks, this is generally what I get. This tea has a fairly strong spicy flavor that works well with milk, and I find it more interesting than the Awake blend, which is basically the only other option for black tea when one is at the ’bucks.
Basic black tea- there’s very little remarkable about this tea, but if you require a cup of black tea, this gets the job done.
A delicious dessert tea- the maple and cream flavors blend beautifully with black tea. This tea makes me feel like I’ve had a sweet treat even when I’ve only had a cup of tea.
Coffee flavored tea sounds like a weird thing, but it really is quite nice. Basically, it’s like all of the good things about the flavor of coffee without the harshness- think a coffee flavor on the smooth base of tea. In any case, I love this tea- the coffee and cream flavors are both evident, and it produces a lovely after dinner cup.
A lovely afternoon tea. Apple flavoring goes surprisingly well in black tea, and here the flavor balance between tea and fruit is just right.
A very strong earl grey- this is the strongest-scented earl grey I’ve ever had. This is excellent for those who like a heavy bergamot flavor.
Very tasty! This tea has a fantastic coconut flavor, and it’s the flavor of real coconut, not a super-sweet fake flavor. I agree with the other reviewer that it makes a delightful dessert tea.
This is one of my Adagio favorites- a nice tropical fruity note on a black tea base. It had enough flavor to keep me happy, not so much that I was overwhelmed.
I like this tea. It’s a little bit tart, with the just the right amount of fruit to balance the black tea. Refreshing in the afternoons, for sure.
It’s taken me awhile to appreciate this tea. The rum flavor is not at all strong, which is a shame. After drinking nearly a full cannister, I think that maybe I can taste the rum. That might be a figment of my imagination, though. A solid mild, non-offensive tea.
I don’t like this as well as I like Adagio’s straight up chocoloate tea. I’m not entirely sure what the difference is, except that this one tastes a bit faker and less smooth than the chocolate. I’m still quite willing to drink it, but purchasing-wise, I go for the chocolate.
An absolutely delightful caramel-flavored black tea. This tea has just the right amount of sweetness (it doesn’t taste sugary), and has a distinct caramel flavor, which doesn’t obscure the flavor of the tea itself. I have purchased this tea several times, and continue to keep it on my shopping list.
I agree that this was somewhat dissapointing. It’s a spicy black tea that is just not as flavorful in the cup as it smells in the bag. Upton’s New England Harvest blend is a much better choice for a spicy, flavored black tea.
A very tasty tea- light, with a flavorful tropical fruit taste. Mighty Leaf calls this “a good introduction to green tea” and in many ways that’s true- the flavor of the green tea is not so strong, and it’s tempered by the tropical fruits. This is a good, slow introduction to the flavor of green tea.
Very strong lavender- stronger than I was expecting. The lavender does overwhelm the taste of the black tea- great for the lavender lover.
This is a very smooth tea- a good black base, with just the right amount of caramel flavor, and not artificially sweet. This is an excellent afternoon/evening tea.
Nice rose flavor with pleasant white base. A very good afternoon tea- delicate, but no so much so that you’ll miss the flavor.
