98 Tasting Notes
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 really need to stop buying artifically flavoured teas.. Most of the time they are just too much for me and I get tired of them after a few cups. But every season I just can’t resist trying some of Davidstea special collections teas!
Anyway, this one is my favorite out of the three teas I got from the winter collection. It really tastes like cake. It’s obviously artificial flavouring, but I would say it is nicely done and it doesn’t have a bad or fake aftertaste.
A note for my fellow quebecers : It’s called Brioche fruitée. When I picked it up in the store I didn’t know what to expect because I had never heard that name in my life. Then I realized it probably means Gâteau aux fruits. That is exactly what it tastes like.
I am not a pu’erh expert but I liked this one. The packaging is very nice and it’s not fishy. In fact, I ordered a lot of pu’erh samples from Teavivre and so far I haven’t been disappointed by any of them. I would need to do side by side tastings to pick out my favorite.
This one tastes very creamy with an hint of pistachio. Even if I was expecting the other way around, I find it has a great balance and is pretty tasty. I’d be curious to try mulberry leaves on their own.
This tea smells incredibly delicious, it reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum. I thought it would taste very fruity with a hint of spices, but it really tastes more almond-y than anything else. It’s good when you know what to expect, but I don’t think I would repurchase it. It has an aftertaste that bothers me, maybe some fake almond/cherry flavour that lingers.
I can’t get this one to taste strong enough for my taste. I found it very bland, even with agave and foamed milk added to it with a little cocoa powder sprinkled on top. I thought it would be the perfect dessert tea but it only has a faint nutella aftertaste, I find it disapponting.
This is my first Assam tea. I was expecting my first sip to be very strong and flavourful, but I find that it’s mostly strong in the aftertaste and very astringent. It’s good, but I think I prefer other kinds of strong black teas.
