71 Tasting Notes
I had this tea for the first time just a couple of days ago, but forgot to submit my review. I love it! It’s a nice, light tea, with layers of orange, lemon, and bergamot over the black tea. I found it quite refreshing as an afternoon tea, and it’s definitely one of my favorites.
I’ve always thought hay smelled SO good, but I was a bit skeptical when I tore open the bag and smelled a strong, fresh hay smell. I’m still not too sure what I think of this tea, but it’s not exactly horrible, either. It does taste exactly like it smells, though, so if you’re not into hay, this might not be for you. This was also my first Rooibos ever, so I don’t have anything to compare it to in terms of quality. I will be trying this one again to see if I warm up to it.
Well, this tea definitely showed me what ‘malt’ was like! I love it- it’s a nice and clean flavor, strong but not bitter, with a lot of good malt. I like that it doesn’t have a ton of astringency to it- just a touch. This is one of my favorites, even though it’s ‘just Twinings’. lol
The jasmine smell was nice, but pretty strong for a cup of tea. I also got a pretty bitter flavor. Not one of my favorites, and I definitely won’t have another cup of this one. I’d be more than happy to try other brands of jasmine green, though.
Let me start by saying that I am definitely a licorice fan. I tried this tea for the second time this morning, thinking that maybe I was just too off-put the first time. I was wrong. I still don’t care for this tea. The flavor is overpowering, and the aftertaste, while pleasant at first, becomes a bit cloying after a few sips. Just not my thing, which is disappointing since I love all the ingredients individually(usually).
Got this one in a round robin, and I LOVE IT! I’m new to tea(I’ve drank tea all my life, but always the same kind lol), so this is opening up a whole new world for me! I loved the bold taste, and there was no bitterness to this one at all. One of my favorites to date.
I didn’t associate this with Magnolia. I grew up with several magnolia trees here in the south, and this was definitely not it. Disappointed.
Loved this one. I got it in a sampler box, and wish now I had just bought a box of this instead! It was a nice full flavor with sweet, non-cleaner-like bergamot. I got no bitterness or dusty flavors, and it was near perfect for me. I may just be deprived, though. ha!
I enjoyed this tea. It was strong enough, with just the right amount of chocolate and mint(which was very light). I didn’t get any dusty or musty flavor from mine. This is one I’d definitely try again if I had it on hand, though not sure I’d go to the trouble of finding it to buy it myself.
