299 Tasting Notes
Drank this after supper. Wanted dessert, but decided tea was a better option. I have been wanting ice cream here lately, so I choose this tea. OMG, it is so wonderfully good. How can tea taste just like ice cream….I scream, we all scream for Neopolitan Honeybush!
added asplash of milk which really bought out the creaminess:)
My daughter brought this sample to me saying “I think you will like this EG”
I have tried it this morning and have decided that this must be what Picard was drinking on Enterprise. This is smooth, not perfumey(I am so glad, I hate drinking perfumed teas and I can’t imagine Picard liked perfume either:), the citrus notes are light and flavorful. This is like a cross between a mild EG and Blood orange Black: the base contains Ceylon(I am a huge fan of Ceylons) and the citrus notes are present(not as strong in this tea as the Blood Orange) but I do like it. My search may just be over for an EG. I have found a few others that I liked, but they were out of my price range due to shipping to the US.
I think if you really liked a traditional EG, you may not like this too much. But for me, it is the perfect ratio of everything. Now I can say “EG hot” and get a tea that is very much drinkable!
Thank you Mrawlins2 for the sample:)
OMG, breakfast never tasted so good:)
one pg tip pyramid & a few rock crystals to 12 ounces of water in my Chatsford teapot.
2 minute infusion time. added a wee splash of milk in my tea cup and viola~tea perfection in a cup. Smooth, not bitter. PG tips are hard to describe…I am reminded of their commercial:
The man and monkey are sitting in a restaurant. Having just poured fresh cups for both of them, the man askes the monkey, “how would you describe the taste of PG Tips?”
The monkey takes a sip, swirls it around in his “sock mouth” and exclaims loudly “Splendid….yes, yes, YES,YES” he carries on for a few seconds more. The lady at the booth next to theirs tells the waiter “I’ll have what he is having.”
Priceless….every time I drink this tea, that commercial comes to mind…it makes me happy! No other tea in my cupboard has the ability to make me laugh out loud with pure joy. You gotta love the monkey:)
Here is the link to the video I was trying to describe…but did not do it justice. Watch & Enjoy:)
This is the last pot of this tea:(
It is light and needs no additions, perfect all on its own!
Another cup of the irish after lunch today:)
This purchase was my St. Paddy’s day celebration!
Love this tea. So smooth. Perfect compliment to breakfast:)
Nice green tea with vanilla notes on the finish.
I will be looking to buy another box come Thanksgiving/Christmas time.
Nicely done for a bagged tea.
I did not think it was possible for hot tea to taste like ice cream. But it does!
This is so tasty. I just love it.
The chocolate is sweet and not so over the top chocolate. Nice.
The strawberry is juicy and luscious. Very Nice.
The vanilla brings creaminess to this blend. Sweet:)
As Picard would order: “Earl Grey (de la creme) HOT.”
Finially, an Earl Grey that I like!
This one is mild in bergamot but BIG in creaminess. Love the scent of vanilla wafting from my cup:)
If you like cinnamon, you may like this. If you want a mild black tea that can be drank without any additives, you may like this. The orange is not present in this tasting session, the cinnamon and clove are all I taste, that is ok with me, I like both of these flavors in tea. Overall, I like this tea. It reminds me of simpler times.
