64 Tasting Notes
I love the way this tea smells, which is why I bought it. I was almost underwhelmed by the taste when I brewed it because of how good it smelled, but I’m on my third cup, and it’s now won me over. It tastes pretty great, and quite different from other vanillas. It also has recognizable pieces of vanilla bean in it.
This is a very good vanilla. I like it over Adagio’s and Harney & Son’s. Perhaps not quite as much as Betjeman & Barton “Le Classique”.
I really approve of this hazelnut. I’ve tried ones that tasted like cheap McDonalds coffee, where I couldn’t get the flavor off my lips afterwards, but this is more subtle and well mixed (although the smell is nice and strong).
I really like this strawberry tea. It’s not too strong, and it doesn’t taste artificial like some I’ve had. I think I even like it better than Mariage Frère’s strawberry, which is saying something. It’s about on par with Ahmad’s strawberry.
I was afraid from the smell that it would be too overpowering, but it was just right, and the base black tea was really smooth going down, too. It’s a really great dessert tea.
This tea is a variation of earl grey, and it’s great. It’s simultaneously less bitter, but stronger than most of the other earl greys I’ve had.
Super coconut-y and delicious! The black tea is mild and the scent and taste of coconut really comes through.
I’m having my favorite this morning, but it’s with the horror of realizing I’m almost out. I MUST ORDER MORE. I think I let it steep for too long. Anything past three minutes and it gets bitter, even with the sugar, but if you steep it just right, it tastes like rainbows and magic.
Still so good. Much better than a lot of other “strawberry” black tea blends I’ve had. This one doesn’t really over-steep and never gets sour.
I like it, but it’s not my favorite. I haven’t tried it with milk and sugar yet. It smells amazing, but the quality of the black tea isn’t as amazing.
