113 Tasting Notes
Not usually a big fan of chamomile tea, but this blend had a lovely citrus aroma, spring-y and light. Tasted mostly of citrus, not terribly strong (at least in terms of chamomile flavor), but a nice light tea that I would prefer in the evenings. The aroma was especially pleasing.
I wasn’t sure at which temperature to heat the water, so I chose 200 degrees, and brewed it for 9 minutes. Next time I might try full on boiling water, but time-wise, 9 minutes seemed a good length.
An absolutely excellent tea: I brewed and steeped mine for four minutes, which is a minute longer than the recommendation, but it was very well-rounded. I couldn’t taste the notes of raisin and molasses as such, as they were quite subtle, but there was a depth to the tea, no bitter aftertaste that sometimes comes with black teas; there was a definite pleasing aftertaste that reminded me of raisins.
I’m not normally a fan of cranberries, but I enjoyed this tea much more than I thought I would, especially with the dried cranberries. The tea has a good cranberry aroma, with a hint of tartness and with the slight sweetness that comes with dried cranberries. It held up excellently with milk and sugar.
Gorgeous smelling tea! Very fresh strawberry aroma; good, strong, fresh strawberry flavor, too, although more a medium strength tea. Wish it were a bit stronger, would hold up better with milk. (And I would need to add milk, otherwise any accidental oversteeping would cause a bit of a bitter aftertaste for this tea.)
Such an amazing tea! Strong lemon aroma when I opened the pouch before brewing; brewed mine longer than the recommended eight minutes (about 15 minutes), and it was fantastic. Strong but not bitter lemon flavor, and as odd as this might sound, held up very well with milk and sugar, still being able to taste a LOT of lemon. This is really excellent.
