94 Tasting Notes
This is just SO good!! It’s smooth, not bitter and it has a subtle chocolaty aftertaste with mild astringency. I could drink it all day long. It’s easily one of my favorite black teas.
This is less mineral and more vegetal than other oolongs I have tasted. I find that it doesn’t taste a lot like milk, but the mouthfeel and aftertaste are kind of creamy. I haven’t had any other milk oolongs so I can’t compare. It is very good but I don’t think I will find myself craving it just because right now I am not liking oolongs as much as I did. I don’t know what happened, when I started drinking them I was amazed that tea could taste like this, but now they are all kind of meh for me. I need something that will knock my socks off!
This review is about the bagged form of this tea. I really don’t have a lot to say about it. I like it but it’s kind of flat tasting.
The bergamot flavour in this tea is subtle and I am happy about that because the last earl grey I bought was wayyyy too strong on citrus and I wasn’t able to enjoy it. I’ve been luckier so far with bagged earl greys than with loose leaf. I wish I could find a good loose leaf earl grey because I always find that the bagged ones lack in flavour complexity. Anyway, this one is a safe bet! If you’re not sure about earl greys I would suggest trying this one first because it’s nice and light and the bergamot flavour isn’t too perfume-y. But don’t expect to be blown away by this.
Finally a tea from Twinings that tastes like tea! This one brews very dark and strong with a mild astringency. It’s fine and I will enjoy drinking the bags that I have, but I feel like it doesn’t have the complexity of flavours that I am used to with loose leaf blacks.
Not bad, the bergamot flavour is light and the other citrus aromas are nice, but I can’t taste the black tea as much as I would like to. This is something I find disappointing in several Twinings blends. Overall, this is truly refreshing and it goes down very well. This review is about the bagged form of this tea. After reading other tasting notes it seems like the loose leaf version is better. Oh, and Uniquity is so right about it tasting like Froot Loops!
I drank this hot with a spoonful of honey and it was very soothing for my sore throat and it tasted exactly like cherry jell-o!
I’m not sure why I bought this but I am glad I did. I had never tasted straight mint tea but I thought it would be something great to have in my cupboard. Right now I am coming down with a cold and it really helps with my sore throat. I add honey to it and it becomes sweet and minty, yum! Way better than chamomile as a cold remedy in my opinion, but both are really good to keep on hand at all times! This morning I am still sick and in the mood for something stronger, so I mixed a tiny bit of this with my nepal black and some honey and it was sooo good! When I am out of this I really want to try the peppermint tea, they didn’t have it in stock the last time I went to the store. I feel like I am going to like it even better than spearmint.
I just brewed a cup of this following the instructions from Den’s exactly. It was sooo bitter! And not just in the aftertaste.. I’m pretty sure it’s because I didn’t drink it as soon as it was done brewing. I removed the infuser but it sat there for a couple of minutes. Maybe the tiny tea particles in the bottom of the cup oversteeped. The second infusion tastes good though. I’ll need to try this again before rating it.
