225 Tasting Notes
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.
This one really looks and smells great. Kinda sad to see the ratings it got before me. But I yet have to try it. Maybe I’ll like it more…
I’ve used just a half of the sampler to make it.
Color is deep yellow. Smells interesting. Bit different than most green teas. Idk how to describe that difference tho :)
I actually quite like the aftertaste. It’s delicious, smoky and full. But the first feel is more watery and slightly acid or something like that. I like the contrast of the first taste and aftertaste. It’s not bitter at all.
It’s different. I like it. Quite a lot.
In advance I’m just sayin Lord help me! :)
Pure Jasmine tea is always a danger for me.
But lets go open the bag…
Haha while cutting the bag open i cut my finger with scissors. Thats soooo not a good start :)
Smells like jasmine – for me ewwwy…
Tastes not so bad. Somewhere in between of good and bad. Jasmine flawor is quite strong but green tea flavor is there too. The black vanilla jasmine was bit better tho. Better combo.
Am not rating it again. It would be round 50ish if i did… Wouldnt buy it.
OK, so it has that jasmine smell i kinda hate in tea. So far I either hated or loved jasmine flavored teas. Just something about jasmine and me. Hope it’ll be on the good side but I honestly doubt it. I hate the smell of this tea…
OK I don’t hate it. I love the initial taste in my mouth but I slightly dislike the aftertaste. It’s very subjective tho so i wont rate it. Tastes like good tea but there is an issue of jasmine aroma for me :) But I’d even rate it on the good side…
And yeah all the aromas – jasmine, vanilla and black tea blend in quite nicely.
Loose tea smells nice. Very teaish :) And rumish.
Nice dark brownish color and a still very black teaish smell. Bit of rum and gentle vanilla too.
Tastes very ummm plain black plus some scents to it. Isn’t very full and smooth. Wouldn’t say bad. It’s really drinkable if you want a non sweet dark tea. But it has no wow effect. Nothing really special about it. Kinda like buying plain black/indian teabag tea in the grocery shop.
I’ll rate it just as average…
The leaves smell very intense, both fruit and honey smell. Tea smells similar which is actually really nice. Nice brown honey color.
Its sweetish with a strong honey taste. Not bad for a fruity thing. Pear is mixed quite well with honey.
For me this is pretty good…
