This tea has a refreshing citrus smell when you open the tin – like that mist of fragrance as you peel a fresh tangerine. When steeped for three minutes, I found this tea to have a delicate flavor, with no acidity. The citrus flavor is not as pronounced as the fragrance, but still an enjoyable cup of tea.
8 Tasting Notes
My China Mist Organic Black was just the plain black blend. It is smooth, yet robust. I steeped the bag for four minutes. liked this tea.
This tea was a little hard to measure because of the larger size leaves and this may have affected my brew. That said, I did enjoy this tea and did not find it to be overly vegetal – a trait I’m finding hard to adjust to. It was very smooth with no bitterness and a light pleasant fragrance.
I also discovered this tea at PF Changs restaurant. Oolong is a newer taste experience for me. I found that I really liked this particular tea. The larger pyramid bags (makes a whole pot) were quite convenient. The flavor has a hint of smokiness without acidity and a little sweetness. Very pleasant.
This tea was brisk, but quite smooth with the addition of milk. It is a fine morning tea. I gave it a shorter brew time than some blacks and found that some of leaves were broken enough to escape the filter basket. This is an enjoyable Ceylon tea.
This is what I call one of my “everyday teas”. A perfect morning blend; a very robust tea with lots of body, that takes well to milk. It is a smooth tasting blend of Assam and Kenya teas in convenient round teabags.
This tea has the most wonderful fragrance. It is 100% Ceylon tea, with the added flavor of four fruits. I enjoyed this with a little milk and honey. For some reason the fragrance was very soothing and not overpowering like some flavored teas.
This is one of my everyday teas. I like to start the day with a pot of robust black tea such as London Cuppa, Yorkshire Gold, or PG Tips. The trick with the PG Tips is a shorter brewing time – I usually give it three minutes – and add milk. To me it’s brisk, yet smooth. I’ll be drinking a lot of this tea, since hubby gave me a case for Christmas.
