I am absolutely shocked that this tea was already in the database. I found this tea at World Market last night when I was there shopping for a friend. I’m not really sure WHAT I was thinking when I put it in my cart. I must have known that I wouldn’t care for it, I must have known I was setting myself up for tea dust in a tea bag, and pretty much, that’s what this is.

It’s a Ceylon tea. It’s nothing all that spectacular. It’s kind of verging on horrible. Not really rich, or flavorful. It tastes astringent and nasty. Maybe I must have thought I needed to revisit what bad tea tastes like? I really don’t know what I was thinking when I bought this. But I won’t again.

The company that sells it is actually Vision Pack Brand, and they seem to supply to gift basket companies, So, if you’re buying a tea gift basket, and you happen to see this tea in it, do your gift recipient a favor and skip the basket in lieu of better tea.

The one redeeming factor of this tea? The package is kind of cool. I might use it in my art at some point.

I was a bit worried when I opened this and couldn’t smell anything at all! The most I could get off the dry leaves was a faint grassy smell. After steeping, it smelled faintly of grass and…french fries, of all things. My friend distracted me, so I’m not sure how long I let it steep, though it tastes as if it was just a tiny bit too long. I think it may go well with milk, I have one bag left that I will have to try milk with.

This tea actually got mellower and much better as it cooled

My lovely co-worker brought this little 2-bag pack to me this morning as a gift. I’ve seen it in World Market and passed it by, figuring the only thing it had going for it is the lure of the name of Ernest Hemingway. And I was correct – it’s inoffensive enough, drinkable but thoroughly unspectacular.

Bog-standard dust and fannings kind of tea bag. The flavour isn’t bad, but it’s a bit flat and cheap tasting. I want to say kind of similar to Red Rose?

Drinkable enough, but not something I would ever reach for given other options.

Hell of a name for a tea to have to live up to.

I wasn’t expecting much from a teabag but I was hoping for something a little bit better given the name.

I have been a tea drinker for many, many years. I received Ernest Hemingway as a gift over the Holiday. It is an excellent tasting tea. However, I have not been able to find more. Would love to know when it will be available.
