Its quite bright coloured – orangy.
Smells nice. Like it should…
It leaves a full taste in my mouth. That I love. It has the slight bitternes which goes well with black teas. This tea is quite yummy…

EDIT It’s refreshing and good cold…

I didn’t drink white tea in ages. Was never in the mood for it somehow. Or was I lazy to wait for the water to cool down? :)
Anyways now i remember. I like this one. It has that smoothness that white teas sometimes have. Ginger is quite present but in a very delicate way. It’s not as peppery as I’d expect. Can bearly feel that side of ginger.
But all together this is quite an enjoyable white tea…

It’s very dark. Smells like earl gray. Imho it’s always a good thing when something smells the way it’s supposed to :)
Tastes quite smooth. Bit bitter. Strong on bergamot. I went for a wake-up tea this morning and i think this could do it.
Not bad…

Really smells like roses. Quite surprising.

MMMmmmmm yumm it’s really yummy. I didn’t know that roses taste so good :)
It’s a strong yet gentle flavor. Very overwhelming. Very good black flavored tea. Maybe even best one so far. Definitely best one with flower-flavor. Rose totally beats jasmine for me…
I’d buy this one again and i’d buy it as a very nice gift too. Thumbs up Golden Moon…

Teabag smells like orange (vitamin C) candy that I like :) Cant really smell cinnamon.
Tea still smells the same. Who woulda thought that the orange smell can overtake the cinnamon smell….
Hmmm first sip was weird. Nice aftertaste but the very first impression was a bit wtf. Lets try it again.
OK its not bad but I’m not overly delighted with it either. I prefer the apple cinnamon one. This orange tastes artificial to me…

It suited me today. In that jasmine/weird way :)

I ‘stole’ one teabag of every Twinings tea I haven’t tried yet in a hotel the other day. Shhhhhhhhhhhh ;)
This one smells awesome. Mmmmm apple pieeeeeee. Downside of it is that I’m hungry instead of thirsty after steeping and smelling it.
Tastes good – of apple pie (apples, cinnamon and raisins) but the black tea is veeeery vague. It’s a good fruit blend. But as TeaEqualsBliss said more like juice. I’m sure it would be yummy cold. Sweetened too.

So i really like it as a drink and that’s what counts for me but it’s not very tea-like. I’ll still rate it good cuz it’s kinda yummy :) And I’d gladly drink it again. But with a piece of apple pie on the side.

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
