304 Tasting Notes
A good friend purchased this tea for me while she was on vacation.
First, let me say that the tea is most adorable tea tin I own:)
Second, the smell from the dry tea leaves was to die for, the aroma from the ginger and the apricot, oh my… I quickly brewed up a cup of this and tapped my foot for 2 minutes while it was brewing.
First sip, was like heaven in a cup, all soft and warm with tingles from the ginger.
Second sip/no make that a gulp, I am so glad I asked her to purchase this tea for me, I am in love.
I have certainly drank this tea more than 2 times as I am almost out!
This tea is earl greyey, it pairs well with chocolate and I generally like it. Do I like enough to reorder, I think not. There is just something about this one that leaves wanting more…more of what I do not know.
The smell of fresh ripe strawberries in my cup puts a smile:) on my face.
I have not had this tea in a long while…just too darn hot here in Texas to really enjoy hot tea. As the weather starts to turn over to ole man winter, I fear my tea cabinet will begin to dwendle and this tea will be the first among the casualties to disappear from my tea cabinet. I am so thrilled that this particular blend is on the permanent list at 52 teas and thus my fears abolished.
The first sip is pure delight, I have missed drinking this one at night.
I made a pot of this tea earlier in the week and last night and today. The smoothness of this tea is refreshing. Once upon a time ago, I wrote a review of this tea on It’s all about the leaf…I reread that review last night and I still feel exactly the same way toward this tea. I will include the link here just in case you are curious:)
mrawlins2 gave me three bags to try. OMG, they are so full of orange goodness you would swear you were eating a mandarin orange!
Tart in a good way & spicey. Makes me think about fall spices…nutmeg comes to mind. None of the bitterness you sometimes get with green teas.
This one is a keeper:)
Lowered the brewing time to 5 min. That was the Loooongest 5 min! The smell emitting from my cup made me look over my shoulder to see if anyone thought I was baking:)
added 1 tsp milk and 1 tsp raw sugar…OMG, I am in love with this tea. Come on Frank, move this one over to the permanent collection:)
