30 Tasting Notes
I think I score this tea it as highly as I do because I find it so unexpectedly drinkable. Normally, I dislike Irish Breakfast blends. I often find them too aggressive and too bitter. This is uncommonly smooth and surprisingly pleasant.
Bland and flat. Tastes like a blend of powdered baby aspirin mixed with tea dust.
I wanted to like this tea, but there’s no pumpkin flavor to it, just spice. Frankly, with milk, it tastes like so-so chai. Which is okay, but not what I was expecting from this tea. I would not buy this tea again.
I know this tea is tremendously popular, but honestly, I think I’m just not a fan of English Breakfast as a blend.
I live in the South. It’s August. Sometimes, you just need a big glass of iced tea (I prefer mine unsweetened). This is not one of those glass-pitcher-garnished-with-mint photo opportunities. This is about heading directly to the refrigerator to quench your thirst after coming in from 90 degree temperatures.
Harney it ain’t, and it doesn’t pretend to be. Of the big bag, always-on-the-grocery-store-shelf teas, I much prefer Tetley to Luzianne or, heaven forbid, Lipton.
This is the best mango tea I’ve ever had. Fortnum and Mason does not skimp on the quality of the black tea, and they are very generous with the mango pieces. My parents very kindly brought this back to me from London, and I will definitely purchase more when I run out.
I like this much better than regular chocolate tea. The hazelnut really seems to enhance the chocolate flavor by providing a nice contrast.
This is almost like drinking chamomile on steroids: it has a surprisingly rich flavor for a tisane. A very pleasant brew.
I absolutely love this tea! It may well be my favorite green tea blend.
I very much wanted to like this tea. It was a special order based on a Teamailer’s recommendation, however, it seems that our tastes diverge on this blend. The smell is overpowering: the fragrance dominated my tea cabinet so badly that I had to seal it in extra Ziploc bags. The flavor is equally intense. I found it too perfume-like for my palate.
