38 Tasting Notes
Wow. WOW. Definitely my favorite straight black tea. The flavor is strong, malty, and very unique. The smell is kind of smoky, but the taste isn’t. Filling too. I will definitely be buying more than this!
Drank this a few days ago and forgot to log it. I much prefer this to the Lover’s Leap. The leaves are bigger and the taste is more complex. It’s naturally sweet and delicious with milk.
This tea is basically the liquid version of York Peppermint patties. At first sip, the mint does tend to overpower the chocolate, but the very chocolatey aftertaste makes up for that.
I think I put a little too much honey in this; I could barely taste the tea itself. I’ll have to try it again.
Had some to keep me awake while finishing a term paper (procrastination is never worth it, kiddies). The flavor was simple and straightforward, not too bitter, malty, or sweet. Just a simple, no-nonsense black tea.
I wanted some tea before bed, but didn’t feel like using my Teavana Perfect Tea Maker (which is a pain to clean) or even a filter bag, so I pulled this out. As always, the quality was excellent for a bagged tea and the taste was delicately sweet.
Really malty for a white tea. Just not for me.
I think I may have oversteeped it; it had too much bite and I could barely taste the peach and ginger. Fortunately, it was drinkable after I added milk. Maybe I’ll try it again and steep it for three or four minutes.
Another one from my cousin. A pleasant surprise! I’ve tried English Breakfast tea before and found it quite bitter and hard to drink. Granted, the tea I tried was cheap, bagged, and probably stale. This one was very strong and rich, but not in an off-putting way at all. Just wonderful with milk and honey. A good staple.
