300 Tasting Notes
Hello old friend. The perfect cup of Ceylon tea with an orange hit.
I find myself choosing this one over and over. Ceylon base is perfectly balanced and the sweet punch of peaches takes this simple bagged tea over the top. Must buy more:)
This is soooooo goooood. Added milk and sugar=perfection. Creamy, bergamot sits nicely in the background.
Oh, how I love you PG Tips, let me count the ways….
The rich flavor
The briskness of the blend
The addition of sugar and milk yields a caramel color brew in my cuppa=perfection!
The small white teapot dedicated to pleasing my eye as the tea pours from the spout
And, who could forget the Monkey!? Not me! Everytime, I drink tips , I think of this video clip:

A black chai blend, this seems promising….brewing….brewing…..sipping….nice, very drinkable. Caramel notes come through nicely with an almond note at the end. I am drinking this with no additions.
TTB A sampler #1
The tea leaves remind me of Blood orange black from Drink the leaf with one exception: rose petals. The smell is very petallie….brewing…brewing…brewing…sip one….it is like drinking a cup of perfume. If you like that sort of thing, this may be it! Down the drain.
Today, I am not feeling well. Today, will be a honeybush day. I started my day off with Cinnamon Roll Honeybush. It smells just like a cinnamon roll! I don’t know how Frank does it, but all of his HB blends are just fantastic. A six minute brew yielded a mild, tasty cuppa.
Part of my saturday sampler day. Ground up cinnamon and plum. Time to break put the Chatsford infuser basket. Tart, cinnamon. On first sip, I did not think it was very good, but I continued to sip and found it to be tasty and a nice edition to evening tea choices.
Part of saturday sampler day. Very light on the plum and spice and thankfully light on the green tea. This is ok if it were the only thing available, I would drink it.
At first glance of the tea description…rose petals ugh…smoke ugh! But I am pleasantly surprised at the layers of flavor. First, you smell the smokiness, but it is not the over the top smokey, just a slight smoke. Second, you taste a delicate backdrop of black teas and then on the back of your tongue the cream of a rose. I have not added milk or sugar this time.
