8 Tasting Notes

95

This tea seems to taste different whenever I have it. This time for Breakfast it woke my mouth up, got me doing some warm ups and then prepared me for a big dose of English Muffin. It’s just great on any occasion again with a little milk and some sugar. Oh, how I love the versatility of this tea.

A very straight forward Chinese green tea. Bitter taste and of course without milk or sugar. Not bad for a straight drink, but doesn’t wash down well with a meal.

A nice light tea for drinking on occasion. Definitely not a full-bodied tea for those used to drinking a strong black blend, but worth a try if you are looking for something different.

Tastes great without milk or sugar as well as with. Personal preference is without but find it with just as pleasant.

Not as full-bodied as my preferred Irish Breakfast, the English Breakfast from Twinings provides a nice pick me up when you just roll out of bed. It really isn’t the most flavoursome tea in the world, but its good for just a plain black tea. If brewed for long enough, you can get a bitter taste which is good or bad depending on your preferences.

Best served with milk and sugar. Boiling is also key to drinking this black tea.

A lovely bitter oolong that I just can’t get enough of. I can drink it to the very end, and it settles my stomach after a long day at school. Just a good tea to drink on its own.

Best served on its own without milk or sugar. Allow it to steep for a longer period to get the full flavour.

My daily religious tea. No matter how many other teas I drink, I can come back to this tea in the confidence it will give me a solid tasting bit of comfort. There is no bite on the aftertaste and it goes down smoothly every sip.

Despite its $2 price tag, this tea shouldn’t be snubbed at, as I find it one of the better mass produced black teas out there. It is a MUST TRY for all tea drinkers.

I think the key to this tea though is drink it hot! Any colder than boiling and a real bitterness comes through. This tea is perfect with one, perhaps two sugars, and just a dash of milk. It’s also not bad black with just one sugar.
