I’m not a fan of Lapsang so I got this to try it again in a less potent blend. It really wasn’t wretched. I think I might slowly be turning to the dark side.
12 Tasting Notes
Mmm…delicious. Has a wonderful distinctly honey flavor to it without being obnoxious.
How could I forget this was in my cupboard? Once again, I’m reminded how delicately calming and magical this tea is.
Make sure you don’t leave it to steep too long and that the water is not boiling for best results. Treat this tea right and it will treat you right.
I’m happy with this one every time I make it. Just a tad of honey this time to let the flavor of the tea be the highlight. Now…I think I have papers to write, but this is the best excuse to procrastinate.
I had this tea again this morning. First time having tea after being sick. It was wonderful. Two small teaspoons of honey bring out the flavor even more.
Wasn’t feeling great this morning (stomach a little upset) and decided to make this tea with a little honey in it. Now I feel much better. Helped settle my stomach.
Had this again tonight with a little sugar. I’m still happy with it. Even shared some with my roommate and her boyfriend. They think it is excellent too.
When I opened the bag, I thought, “Hhmmm, that certainly smells like it’s from India. This should taste interesting.” Then I tasted and was not super impressed, but still rather enjoyed it. I think it’s definitely getting better every time I drink it. I’m quite the fan now.
This was okay, but I really enjoy Twinings Darjeeling. This was really temperamental to brew. If you don’t watch out…it’s easy to brew it too long and have it come out bitter.
I really enjoy this concentrate. I’m not a big fan of powdered chai mixes. This is very good as a dirty chai latte (coffee, chai, milk).
My favorite version of this tea: decaf. It’s my late night tea; best with milk and sugar and a good book. Side note: my family has found that using several of these tea bags makes some of the best decaf iced tea when paired with some bags of decaf green tea.
This is one of my go to teas. It’s definitely strong enough to stand up to milk/sugar. I really enjoy the flavor of this tea with just sugar in it as well.
