18 Tasting Notes
I love this tea in the evening when I’m reading and need to focus. I don’t feel like I’ve had a caffeine overdose when drinking this tea, but I’m alert and ready to take on any evening projects.
My first taste of this cuppa was at the Omni in Philly a couple of years ago. I added cream and sugar and was very impressed. Bold in taste and color, this is my go-to tea when I feel the need for a cup of coffee.
This is my first tea with rose petals so I was very exciting my this purchase. I love roses so this may be a tad biased. This tea is delicate and would be great for an afternoon tea with scones. It smells really good as well. For my net cup I may steep it for a couple of more minutes. If you love roses, this tea is for you!
I’m so excited to drink a local tea! I was pleasantly surprised this morning with drinking this. Subtle hints of vanilla and cherry makes this black tea enjoyable to drink. I steeped it for 5 minutes and it wasn’t bitter so I’m thinking if you left the bad in it won’t turn bitter. I’m glad I picked this up.
This is hands down my favorite bagged tea. I’m on my second box and giving boxes away! I simply love the full body taste and it simply makes my morning. Highly recommended if you are an Earl Grey fan.
I remember buying this box and looking forward in trying something new and was really disappointed because it was very harsh for me. It could be the steeping time and temperature. It took a year for me to finish the box. Maybe I will try again with a different brand or a loose altenative.
1/16/2012- Okay, so I bought a second box since it was on sale. I carefully steeped this tea for 2 minutes or it becomes bitter quickly. I raised the rating since I like the favor the second time around. I’m not sure if this will be in my regular rotation of my tea, but I will give it a chance to grow on me.
I’m not a big fan of lemon in my tea, but it’s delightful with a lemon scone or biscotti for a mid-morning treat. It’s not too lemony.
My friend getting over a cold gave me a box so this is what I’m sipping on this afternoon. Very smooth- I’m even able to tolerate the lemon, as I have to be in a mood for lemon in my tea. I wish I had this tea when I was getting over my cold last month!
I passed this tea out to my co-workers and it was a hit during the holiday season. A nice tea for the season.
My first mint tea in a long time to wind down my work day. Since I don’t have anything to compare to, I will say that ‘s nice to sip for the afternoon. I think I was expecting something special, so maybe I’m a bit disappointed.
