331 Tasting Notes
I found this at Safeway, and picked it up. I hadn’t seen a lavender earl grey before – two of my favorite things! And the price was pretty good for organic loose tea – it was under $8 for the 3.5 oz tin.
I brewed a mug tonight. The bergamot flavor was not as strong as I’d like, but I definitely tasted lavender. Maybe they had to tone down the earl grey in order for the lavender to come through. I think this would have been better if there was some vanilla or cream flavor too. That would be delicious. I may have to experiment later with some earl grey cream I have sitting in the cupboard.
I’m not sure I’ll buy thing again, but I’ll happily try some of the other flavors the company has for sale. It’s pretty decent quality loose tea for a very decent price. And at the supermarket!
I was expecting this tea to taste more like lychee, given how strong the lychee teas I have are. This tea tastes like a jasmine tea with a very subtle undertone of lychee. It’s very nice, but I’m not sure I’ll buy this again. It didn’t wow me, and the jasmine has a perfumy taste I’m not too keen on.
Thanks, Nicole, for the sample bag of this. It’s been floating around my bag for months and I finally remembered it and pulled it out tonight. The restaurant, when I requested tea, brought me Bigelow Green. Blech.
This is very nice – much nicer than other bagged tea I’ve tried that weren’t full leaf. The tea was full tasting, and mellow, and had a hint of spice in the aftertaste. This would be a good purse tea – stick some in my purse and pull it out when I’m in a restaurant.
I won a bag of this from Della Terra from a facebook contest, and I was really excited to try this.
I made up a jug of this last night with a 2:1 ratio of tea to sugar.
This is delicious! The cherry flavor is strong, and slightly tart. It tastes almost like kool-aid without all the artificial flavor. I’ll definitely be drinking more of this. I need to stick the rest of the bag into an air-tight container so I can enjoy this tea when the weather gets warm.
I brewed a pitcher of this last night and stuck it in the fridge over night. Despite the below freezing temperatures (thanks, Polar Vortex!) I’ve been hankering for some iced tea. I used up the last of my stash of this and I don’t think I’ll be reordering.
This tea still doesn’t taste quite right to me. I like it better chilled, but not by much. I do like that the predominant flavor is black tea. I don’t like that I get a perfumy taste in my mouth when drinking this.
ATR sent me a sample of this with my last order. I like it. It’s sweet without being cloyingly so, and the tea flavor comes through. It’s a little tart, but barely noticeable unless I’m looking for it.
I think this would make a nice iced tea, but I’m enjoying this hot right now. I’m not sure I like this enough to buy more, but it’s very pleasant for a snowed in winter’s day.
I was a bit hesitant to buy this because I loathe ginger, but the thought of creme brulee won me over. And I can definitely taste creme brulee in this tea. It’s obviously a chai, but a creamy version. And happily, I can’t really taste the ginger.
Though I am still not a huge chai fan, and probably won’t buy this again. I can see chai lovers loving this, though.
