13 Tasting Notes

I really want to love this tea as much as I love the Dark Forest chai from Townshend’s, but it doesn’t quite get there for me. It gets a little bitter later in the pot, but overall is a pretty nice morning cup.

In general I rather dislike bergamot, so was quite surprised to learn that I really enjoyed this brew. It’s smooth and mellow with a citrusy nose and a slightly sweet finish. The assam is definitely in there, but is not overpowering and gives the cup staying power.

Not recommended for resteep.

Hm, I really enjoyed this one, it’s a lot more subtle than I was expecting, however. Some peach and apricot teas can be almost cloying in the application of fruitiness, but this was perfect for a morning that began too early.

As with many teas, I added a bit of extra tea and time to the process, as I like a strong cup. Taken with a bit of Truvia and skim milk.

I’m beginning to think Townshend’s really can’t do wrong. I’d like to drink more Foxfire teas, but they’re clear across town and I am a lazy sipper.

Holy teagasm! This is an amazing tea and bound to make any day feel better. Tastes like Earl Grey mixed with marshmallow and cream, in the best way possible. I used 1.5 tsp as per instructions and a splash of nonfat milk. Stellar.

This was really lovely. The strawberry and lemon are present, but subtle. If it weren’t caffeinated I could drink this all night long.

Had it with one Truvia and a dash of nonfat milk.

I bought this tea on a whim, not really expecting to love it and was very pleasantly surprised. It smells beautiful and is highly flavorful, although I think a 5-minute steep would have enhanced the flavors.

It literally forced a grin onto my face that hasn’t left yet this morning.

I’m not a big fan of green tea, usually I say it tastes like lawn clippings. This one was an accidental purchase, but turned out to be really lovely. It’s very mild and while the strawberry scent is intense, the flavor is mellow.

This is my go-to sleepytime tea. I like it with 16 ounces and a fair amount of milk.

This is the one my best friend keeps around her house for me to drink, so I have a soft spot for it. It’s a decent tea, not terribly strong, not terribly interesting.
