108 Tasting Notes

A good solid, Earl Grey; wasn’t any more aromatic or than other loose leaf Earl Greys I’ve tried, but a good tea. Recommended steep time was three minutes, but I steeped mine for five (I like my teas a bit stronger). Held up well with milk and sugar.

Has a surprisingly sweet, mellow aftertaste that worked very well as an iced tea. Pleasant and smooth as a hot tea, with shades of peppermint (which left a nice menthol aftertaste) and had the sweetness of spearmint.

I was surprised that I had bought just the spices; as such, I could whichever tea base I wished (I used Upton Tea’s decaffeinated Assam). Since I’d only bought a few ounces, I brewed the concoction too strongly this first go (and I like my tea strong). The spices were good: strong and pungent, and held up wonderfully with milk and sugar. Good aroma, too, and I enjoyed having control over the amount of spiciness I wanted in a particular cup of tea.

I tried the decaf tea bag version, and was a bit unsure as to what to expect, since I’d never even heard of huckleberry tea before (nor have ever tried anything huckleberry-flavored). I thoroughly enjoyed this, though, It’s milder and rounder that the Market Spice Signature Blend, and the aroma is also sweeter and something I would be able to drink more often than the deliciously pungent Market Spice Signature Blend. It smelled delicious!

I drank the decaf loose leaf version, as well as the iced tea version, and I thought this was a truly excellent tea: Very strongly flavored (which I like), excellent cinnamon flavor, and hints of citrusy orange. The cinnamon made the tea both sharp and sweet, and the orange added a bit of sweetness also, such that milk and sugar weren’t necessary – although one could add either milk, sugar, or both, and the tea would hold up well (although I did notice that when adding milk, the orange aroma all but disappeared.)

I tend to like black currant tea – I’ve had it from other tea companies previously – and I liked this one, also. Not especially mind-blowing, but a good currant aroma, not too strong a flavor, but a decent cup of tea.

Was pleasantly surprised by this tea, since I normally have a strong dislike for anything peach-flavored (including peaches). However, the aroma was very nice, and it tasted very slightly sweet, with a nice rounded peach flavor. While I normally prefer my black teas with milk and sugar, this one was better without.

Not a bad tea; not my favorite, but had a nice slightly plummy and cinnamon aroma, better with milk and sugar, which brought out the subtleties of plum and cinnamon.

Comparative to a straight up lemon myrtle tea, this was a bit muted, but still very bright and lemony, both in fragrance and in flavor. Good iced!

Not a bad tea; not my favorite. Apple overtones, which is not my favorite base flavor, but I do like the black tea/green tea blend of teas.
