104 Tasting Notes

95

I’m not sure how to describe the aroma other than very fruity and light, almost like blueberries wafting from the cup, but slightly different. With creamer the tea tasted a bit like blueberries and cream (well, huckleberries and cream). Good strong brew, despite the decaffeination (which means for those of us who are affected by caffeine have an alternative).

One of my new go-to teas; a good strong brew (I tend to nearly always add milk and sugar or creamer to my black teas, and this held up very well with the addition thereof). Be careful not to oversteep since it’s on the stronger side.

Excellent decaffeinated tea (especially with milk and sugar or creamer); strong cup of tea doesn’t taste like you’re missing the caffeine. No bitter aftertaste, nice rounded flavor.

Nice nutty tea with good banana aroma; does almost taste like banana walnut bread. Big chunks of freeze dried bananas. I brewed mine a bit longer than the recommended three minutes, and added milk and sugar.

Perfectly serviceable Earl Grey tea (in tea bag form, but good quality tea bag), medium strength brew, holds up well with cream and sugar. Not an especially strong bergamot/citrus aroma or flavor.

I’m not generally a fan of green tea, and while I didn’t love this one, it also was better than many of the other green teas I’ve had in the past: nice light fruity, lemony aroma, and the lemon and strawberry negated whatever bitterness or grassy notes that can be prevalent. I added a teaspoon of honey which muted the lemon and strawberry flavors.

One of the teas I sometimes want, it’s got a nice creamy strawberry aroma, and a nice strawberry flavor, although it’s a bit of a heavy flavor. Holds up very well with cream and sugar.

This is one of my absolutely favorite teas: It’s got a gorgeous aroma, both before and after brewing, and does smell like carrot cake. I love this especially with a vanilla or sweet cream creamer (makes it creamier).
