300 Tasting Notes
This is part of my birthday shared teas from my daughter.
Upon sniffing the dry leaf, smoky notes waft…brewed it anyway. This is good. I have been in a tea slump here lately…I don’t like what is in my cupboard.
This is very tasty plain, which is how I am drinking tonight. I think I will try it in the morning with milk and raw sugar. It is not smokey when you drink it. I think I like the Queen:)
OMG, this is a smooth Ceylon. This could be the base for my beloved Black Orange black from Drink the Leaf…no longer in business:(
Not astringent, pairs well with dark chocolate. Added cinnamon chips in the second infusion…yummy:)
Mellow, drinkable. I like this EG cream!
I need to work on my brewing perimeters, but I am glad I went for the full 4 ounce package.
Just a quick note about this company: very fast shipping, all my teas are packed FULL and the shipping was less than $4!
My cupboard says I have drank this tea 25 times, let’s do some math 25 X16=400 cups of PG Tips!
I feel I have crossed over to the expert level on this brew. Brisk, drinkable and my morning go to tea. Don’t let those pyramid bags fool you, the tea will expand to fill up the pyramid. This tea requires a quick 2 minute steeping time. Get your cup ready…raw sugar, a splash of milk, twirl in cup, pour in the tea and watch the caramel color show…perfection in a cup.
When I first started drinking tea, I wanted a good morning cup of tea with consistency. A tea that was coffee like and tea like and would take well to milk. After spending hundreds of dollars on fancier blends, I found this unassuming tea and my morning routine became consistent with a perfect cup of tea each and every morning.
Someone once described this tea as a “ratty” tea.
I have a few ratty teas in my cupboard, they have been there for a while, they are ok, just not what I want to drink. PG Tips is far from being ratty, it is THE one tea I would not be without in my tea cupboard.
What is your one morning tea you will not let yourself run out of in your cupboard?
I am so sad that Drink the Leaf is closing. This is my all time favorite tea. I am kicking myself for not ordering a few weeks back when I had the chance. I did grab a new teapot and a Timolino in ocean blue for 50% off!
I have not been drinking hot tea, it is hot enough here in Texas. Tonight I made a teapot and savored each sip. So light and sippable. No astringency. Orange tones hit as I swallow the best Ceylon base. I am sadly in tea bliss.
Emptied my cute tin and enjoyed my last pot of this tea. A great blend that I will miss in my cupboard
This has been my morning tea for the past month or so, great brisk flavor. A perfext start to each and every day.
Have not had this tea for way too long. This is my go to tea when I am wanting ice cream and not willing to just go ahead and have ice cream. Tea seemed like a better choice today…yea for me..making a good nutritional decision, really this is a no brainer cuz this is really good tea:)
Thank you Terri harplady for this wonderful brew:)
This is soooo tasty, I have added it to my shopping list. This is smooth, fragrant and essentially delicious.
