Cold-brewed overnight using 3 heaped tsp tea for 500 ml water.

I’ve tried this hot, and like the other reviewers found it disappointingly light in flavor, especially considering how wonderful the dry leaf smells. Fortunately the lovely fruitiness comes out more in the cold brew – and even more with a drizzle of agave – yet remains quite delicate. It probably would have been more appropriate for them to call it a scented tea rather than flavored, but the gentle stone fruit aroma lingers on the palate very nicely. It’s much better as a cold beverage than hot (which makes sense, with the Ceylon base and the Jubilee itself taking place in June), but for some reason the packaging doesn’t indicate this, nor does it give steeping amounts or times. Get your act together, Whittard!

If you still have some of this left and were underwhelmed when you first tasted it, try a cold brew. It might change your mind, and help get you through your stash!

Just noticed I hadn’t written a note for this one, even though I’ve tasted it so many times and even left a review on the company website… Oh well, time to catch up!

This tea smells incredible. Many people are swayed to buy it in the shop just by its perfume, this beautiful strong peach/apricot/mirabelle and marigold smell that seems like it might make a perfectly sweet, absolutely divine brew.

I’m sorry to say that, like many Whittard teas, it doesn’t copy the scent exactly (so few teas can match up to how good they smell, anyway). Kind of a shame because I am a MASSIVE fan of peach flavour and it’s rare to get juicy rich peach flavours in tea, but hey ho, this is still good! The Ceylon base is just too strong to let the peach and apricot flavours take over, but it seems to work well with them, instead. It’s not dry at all, has a kind of slight sweetness to the fruit flavour that’s more nuance-y than actually just like the fruit. The aroma of the brew is lovely… And this is just floral/fruity enough that I don’t take it with milk, but with a teaspoonful of honey.

It’s a lovely, well-balanced tea, but it’s always going to be disappointing how little it tastes like how the leaves smell. Oh well! I’ve got plenty of this to get through ♥

This tea smells very fruity, but it doesn’t taste like what you would expect from the smell. I almost can’t taste the fruit, but it’s still a good black tea.
