24 Tasting Notes

drank Berryblossom White by Tazo
24 tasting notes

As a hot tea, Berryblossom White is failing to wow me. I steeped it for the 3 minutes recommended on the package, and the tea has little flavor or scent, just a mild cranberry and tea astringent aftertaste.

As an iced tea, this one was even worse. It had a vaguely berry related aftertaste that I found lingering and icky.

drank Earl Grey Cream by Tea Guys
24 tasting notes

This is my standing favorite loose-leaf tea. I prefer it with just a touch of honey and a little milk. When I first buy a canister of this tea, the creamy vanilla note is perfectly balanced with the Earl Grey. After it’s sat in my cupboard for a while (because I don’t drink just ONE tea, now do I?) the vanilla fades away, revealing smoky notes that are different from other Earl Grey Cream teas. I enjoy it in both phases, but a little more when it’s fresh!

I had high hopes for this cold brewed iced tea, since I’ve enjoyed brewing Lady Grey hot and drinking it cold in the past. Alas, in this case, Twinings has made bergamot into a bat and then beaten my tongue into quivering submission.

I don’t think I’ll even drink the rest of the box in my cupboard unless I somehow forget this terrible iced tea experience.

Even though I was drinking it old and stale, this is a lovely tea with strong notes of lavender. It’s good hot or iced (I’m drinking it iced today) and I feel, best sweetened.

Profile

Bio

I’m a stay-at-home mom in Western MA who loves cooking, baking, gardening, reading, writing poetry, and tea!

I prefer drinking loose leaf teas for flavor and a more satisfying tea experience, but end up drinking bagged tea at least half of the time for convenience’s sake.

I like iced tea in the summer, spiced tea in the winter, and a good earl grey any time. Chocolate teas are nice, since cocoa tends to upset my tummy. I also enjoy some herbal teas, and I look forward to someday growing herbs for tea in my garden. I despise rooibos. And Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime is the only way I’ll drink chamomile.
