116 Tasting Notes
This has definitely become one of my favorite teas, one that I’ll be ordering again. Beautifully strong, holds up excellently with milk and sugar, doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste that so many black teas have if you don’t add the milk and sugar – just the way I love my tea! Fantastic hearty taste.
Had an okay citrusy, orangey, vanilla aroma, but not much of an orange/vanilla taste. The vanilla was very subtle and made the tea sweet (in that there was no bitter aftertaste), but I couldn’t muster much enthusiasm. Might be okay with milk and sugar, but didn’t try it with these additions.
I liked the taste of this one very marginally more than the Cooling Mint Tulsi; there were complexities there I couldn’t identify, but as with the Cooling Mint Tulsi, it was an interesting blend that I’d never had the likes of before. Herbal, in an herb garden-type of way.
This was one of the more interesting teas (in a good way) I’ve ever had. Listed as a tisane, it smelled more like an aromatic herb (and the plant from which it comes belongs to the same family as basil and rosemary).It smelled really fragrant, like an herb garden. It wasn’t very sweet, but had a nicely rounded subtle sweetness to it, likely the result of whatever mints were added. I couldn’t taste any strong mint, but there did seem (to me) to be some subtle peppermint and spearmint. Very interesting and quite nice!
This was fantastic! And is now one of my favorite Earl Greys. I could smell the lavender before I started brewing my tea, but I could taste the rosemary more when I drank the tea (with milk and sugar). Surprised at how much I enjoyed this; had a lovely rounded taste. I love lavender Earl Greys but the addition of the rosemary worked very well.
