10 Tasting Notes
My first Darjeeling ever! As I have nothing to compare this to, it was pretty good; there was a nutty undertone that came close to being too bitter, but the buttery aftertaste evened it out. There are a multitude of flavours in this, so it’s difficult to determine the exact flavour of this tea. Anyway, I liked this but it certainly doesn’t compare to my darling Earl Grey!
My feelings are kind of mixed on this tea. It has a naturally smooth, milky quality and the perfect amount of sweetness. However, as far as flavour goes it was kind of bland. I was definitely expecting a more voluminous caramel component. If you’re looking for a rich desert tea, this tea isn’t for you; however, as a simple and comforting sweet tea this is great!
I tried this tea yesterday and wasn’t very impressed. It was too artificial & sickly sweet; the flavours of orange and vanilla didn’t seem to compliment each other in this blend. The aftertaste was okay, but the taste itself was again just sickening. Adding milk does help this tea, but definitely don’t add any sweetener!
