471 Tasting Notes
I made this one like an English person— brewed Western style, milk in first, no sweetener.
It was HEAVENLY. I have never drunk Earl Grey with milk before, but oh my God, I’m never drinking this one without it again! It gave it like this creamy, fruity, tannic, chocolatey, scrumptious dimension that has been previously untapped by me (I almost always take my tea black).
Bumping up the rating.
Flavors: Bergamot, Burnt, Citrusy, Cocoa, Creamy, Tannic
I’ve been craving black tea at night lately, for some weird reason…
I’m pretty sensitive to caffeine, so I needed a decaf option. This bagged EG is pretty inoffensive. It has that depressingly flat taste that decaffeinated tea leaves take on, but the bergamot makes it tolerable.
Nothing else to really say about it.
Scooped this up at Shaw’s because I wanted an herbal dessert tea.
This’ll do! It’s packed with flavor. Cinnamon, butterscotch, vanilla, non-cloying sweetness, ginger, chicory… Ooooooo, this is tasty! The hazelnut turns up in the aftertaste as a creamy, nutty note.
Every so often, Yogi gets it right. I think that’s why I keep buying their stuff.
9/10, would recommend.
Flavors: Butterscotch, Cinnamon, Creamy, Ginger, Hazelnut, Nutty, Sweet, Vanilla
I like this one… I actually really like dandelion teas in general. The cocoa shells make this one special. And the lack of weird herbs that I’ve never heard of.
It’s light, toasty, relaxing, and healthy. I get burnt bread, cardamom, cinnamon, cocoa, and dandelion when I sip it.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Dandelion, Toast
This tea is meh. Watery cinnamon with a vague cocoa taste. Not terrible for a bagged tea, but not exactly setting the world on fire. At least it woke me up. It lends itself well to travel-mugs, so it makes a suitable companion on the drive to work, at least.
H & S whole-leaf silk sachets have spoiled me!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cocoa, Tea
Why do I even keep bothering with Tazo? I guess in this case, it was free at work, so I grabbed a teabag.
It reminds me of Yogi teas. That same mushy, herbaceous, vaguely medicinal experience, you know? I even taste dirt! Yuck. I blame the star anise and licorice. What a tragic waste of perfectly good cinnamon.
Work has been totally miserable today. I hate having to work Sundays in general, but today has been its own hellish kind of crazy. At least it’s nearly over!
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Dirt, Herbaceous
I was a bit wary of this one— double bergamot? Wouldn’t that increase the likelihood that the tea will taste like floral soap?
But no! It’s creamy, smooth, and delightful! This bagged EG is better than any loose EG I’ve had. Honestly. I can taste notes of vanilla, fresh cream, flowers, citrus, and a hint of spice. This is simply amazing.
I found my new go-to EG for sure.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Cream, Floral, Spices, Vanilla
Picked this up because I realized that I have almost no caffeinated bagged delights to drink at work! How did that happen?
I wasn’t expecting it to be this good. But it is abundant in everything about chai that I love (cinnamon and cloves!), and lacks everything about chai that I hate (looking at YOU, nutmeg!). It’s smooth, full of delicious cinnamon, and the orange peel adds a nice bite of citrus. Num num num.
Only complaint is that the cuppa didn’t last long enough! Time for another.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Orange Zest
