2132 tasting notes

As soon as we got home from our trip this past weekend I made myself a huge mug of this tea and took a moment to enjoy the aroma wafting from my cup— this blend smells nearly as heavenly as it tastes. The bergamot comes through the strongest, with a good dose of vanilla to temper the flavor and prevent any of the harsher notes that are sometimes found in an Earl Grey. This is one of the smoothest tasting Earl Grey teas I’ve had the pleasure to drink (and I’ve sampled a lot of Earl Grey over the years, it is my favorite after all.) I did taste more flavoring than tea, but that might be a plus if you aren’t normally a fan of black tea.

Honey, Chamomile, and just a hint of Tulsi make this a very unique herbal blend. It’s soothing and especially nice when you have a sore throat. I could see this being one of my go-to teas when I’m sick.

Peppermint tea has always been one of my favorite teas, but I thought this was an interesting twist on an old stand-by. Just underneath the bright peppermint flavor is the spicy Tulsi. It’s a great combination.

I saved this one for last because rose tea has always been my favorite, but it’s also the most fickle of flavors. If there is too much rose the tea becomes very cloying and difficult to drink. Unfortunately that’s the case with this blend, I’m really not a fan of this one.

I could sit there and smell this tea all day, it reminds me of summer with its faint scent of basil and peaches. It’s an interesting combination of sweet and tart that is slowly growing on me the more I drink it. I’m not really a fan of the hibiscus, but to be fair, I really hate hibiscus.

This isn’t my first experience with Organic India’s Pomegranate Green, it’s one of the samples I picked up at Whole Foods. I’m not a fan, I think it tastes nothing like pomegranate and leaves me with an odd aftertaste in my mouth.

Profile

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Single Origin Teas, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Teawares:
FORLIFE Curve Teapot, 24oz
Adagio ingenuiTEA, 16oz
Adagio Iced ingenuiTEA, 32oz
Zojirushi Water Pot, 4L
Libbey Country Fair drinking jars for ice tea

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
