7 Tasting Notes

Well, it smells a lot better than it tastes. if I drink it slowly it’s quite bitter. A full mouthful has more spice flavor, but still not exactly delicious. Maybe it’s better with milk? Drinkable, but not something I’d buy again.

Very mild, a little grassy. i was surprised how short the recommended steep time was—45 seconds?—and then I see it listed as longer here. I’ll have to experiment with a lower temp and longer time.

I only drink this for cramps, but it’s really not that bad. It tastes a little like a cup of weak generic black tea—not delicious, but not repulsive. Drinkable for a purpose. I’ve had mixed results in terms of pain relief, but sometimes it seems very effective!

This is a really light and refreshing tea—I always want a second cup when I have it. The mint and lemongrass is very light, not overpowering, and adds a pleasant sweetness.

Tried this instead of my normal Irish Breakfast at work when I ran out. I thought it was much more bitter and less flavorful. I’ll drink the rest of the box and see if my opinion changes.

This is my normal office tea. I tend to forget that I put a tea bag in and steep it way too long, but it’s still quite drinkable. I like the bitterness and astringency that it has (even when steeped a more reasonable amount of time). This is a serious no joke black tea.

This is my first foray into “fancy tea” and I’m pretty happy with it. We brewed this as the first tea in our new cast-iron pot, so I had several cups over a few hour time period.

I thought it had a really light, almost sweet flavor. No bitterness at all. My uneducated tastebuds liked it a lot!
