299 Tasting Notes
ahh, the taste of morning: PG Tips. I don’t know why I like this so much. But it is convenient and cost efficient. The taste is bold and coffee like to me.
Please, Keep in mind that I am not a coffee drinker. I think of this tea as my “coffee” in the mornings.
On a side note, I just ordered my Den’s Tea sampler!
I have tasted some really good green teas here lately and wanted to broaden my horizon to Japenese greens:) Great deal for three bucks!
I am not a green tea fan, but this blend is really good. light and very drinkable.
I drank two pots tonight, considered a third, but one look at the time and I stopped for the day. How many infusions have you guys gotten out of this one?
Lime baby:) who knew this would be a good combo!
I can hear the ocean waves as they hit the beach…peaceful, a perfect end to a dreadful day.
Tea bag one:
First sip: dirt, was that dirt I tasted? second sip, no not dirt, mint? Really?
As I empty my cup, definitely mint of some sort. Not what I expected from an EB tea.
Tea bag two:
My second cup of this tea was better than my first. I still taste the mint, but I do see what others are saying about this tasting like a Darjeeling.
Drinkable, just not my cuppa.
I took Marcus Stouts advice about quick rinsing the leaves. WOW, what a difference in this mornings cup. Smooth, OMG wonderful, I remember why I love this tea so much kind of diffence.
I just love his weekly emails offering tips about tea:)
Mild green tea with a hint of ginger lingering on the palette.
I will try to steep the next cup at 2 minutes and see what I think…the last few sips of the 3 minute brew time were bitter:(
Nice peach flavor. I am not getting the ginger kick that I would like.
I have varied the water temp in an attempt to find the ginger, but alas I fear that Ginger has left the teabag.
Overall a nice peach flavored tea in the convenience of a tea bag. No astringency which is my number one criteria for a tea.
Mrawlins2 shared this tea with me:)
The weather today is chilly, seemed like a perfect time to try out this tea!
Added a few rock crystals in the brew basket, waited…..added milk and the smell is to die for, chocolate wafts to my nose as I take my first sip: sweet notes intermingle with the chocolate. Smooth tea taste:) First impression, I am so glad this on the permanent collection! and I really must get off the computer because I have to drink this tea while it is hot…later!
Loooong day at school. This has been the looooongest week in history, while last week was the shortest wk known to mankind(spring break vs back to work).
I am really tired and the tea that seemed right was the Earl. Love the smoothness of this one. The citrus notes are just right and the tea base is in balance:) Astringency is low to null. Taste is high to perfect.
This is definitely a must order tea for me!
Well, the box is almost empty, so I must have drank this more than two times!
Smooth cup of tea for the morning wake me up. This tasted so good paired with my english muffin topped with Nutella. Good morning to me:)
