6686 Tasting Notes
This one is great for this afternoon! Still LOVE the coloring in it – would LOVE to try Crafting with Tea-Dye or something!
I have been oversteeping this lately so this time I was REAL careful. The cup was PERFECT!
Resteeps #2 and #3 – A.O.K.!!!
Was looking for a super dark and bold tea for the start of work today…this was it! Opversteeped and will be resteeping!
While brewing a large amount of this to be iced for later I decided to save a hot cup for myself and it was delightful. Looking forward to the iced later, too!
It was just what I was looking for at the moment…
Resteeped 3 more times…all good…
Oops! Added way too much of the loose leaf…Still smells great and tastes exceptional. I really like this tea. It’s hard to screw up. YUM
As I took the first bag from the box the scent was awful but I followed thru with it. I began to steep and the aroma morphed into something more of a Lemon-Honey than the undesirable first-scent. It’s Yellowish in color. Once you taste it you can taste more lemon than honey and more of both than chamomile but the chamomile is still present. I must say that the smell and the taste are quite different. Almost like once you smell it you think you know what it is going to taste like but then it’s so NOT the case. It’s an average cup…not tremendous but not bad. I’ll give it a thumbs up but not much over a neutral.
Really enjoyed the resteep
Must have oversteeped today because it’s extremely dark and bold in taste but it’s still good if you like the bolder side of tea which I do
3rd steep – still nice but not as dark. Still good flavor tho!
Excellent on the resteep!
I am just finishing up my tin and oversteeped and used a larger amount. I am going to put it to the Resteep test but for the time being enjoying the cup…dark and bold, very nice!
Nice way to start a day! Nice dark color and taste!
I actually bought this today because it looked neat. A 5-bag sample of Bag Ladies Tea -TEA. They feature different tags on each bag and claim they are all different ‘sayings’. This one reads…Be Careful He Might Have Caller I.D. The tea is very dark in color and is fairly bold in taste for a bagged tea. I like it. Fun Cup!
Good on the resteep…might even be able to get a 3rd steep out of it
I’m finishing up what I have in my tin. It’s about a serving and a half. Still tastes great but the scent was a little different this time around – almost musty smelling. Will be testing the resteep…stay tuned.
I’ve already mentioned in previous logs of this tea that I LOVE the aroma of this one…but…the colors of the blend is awesome as well…you have your green tea elements but vibrant purple highlights and a tad of yellow as well. Just a very uplifting and brilliant Tea. LOVE IT.
Decided to finally join the Twinings English Breakfast Gang…the most popular tea on Steepster as of June 09. Super dark in color. Strong Black Tea scent. D-lish Black Tea taste without going overboard. Yummy. Little to no after taste which is always a plus. Good Cup!
Prior to steeping I must say I was very turned off by the smell…it was a cross between a sweet smell and a medicine-E smell…not pleasant. Once you begin steeping and while steeping the scent changes to a more lemon-E Scent which is certainly more pleasant and on the verge of relaxing. It’s a very light shade of Yellowish Green in color. The taste is quite pale but nice to kick back to at the end of the day. Please give this one a shot – don’t base it on first smell! it’s a decent cuppa in the long run – if you are looking to relax, that is.
