42 Tasting Notes
I love Earls with lavender, but this lavender tastes beyond delicious. It’s strong & aromatic. The black base is nice not strong. I love how well it pairs with the bergamot, even when the lavender is stronger, you still can taste the bergamot.
I liked it a lot, but not as an earl variation, can’t taste the bergamot, but it’s tangy & floral. I bet iced is great. The black base is nice, but I need to brew it a little less time, a little too strong with 5:30 minutes. Quite yummy
Light green liquor, earthy & soft taste, smells like a rainy forest. The leaves are so pretty, big & green. Drinkin’ it straight, anyone use any sweetener &/or milk with oolong?
This was a gift from China, straight out of the company’s tea house. It’s floral, fresh, earthy, the liquor is amber. One thing I’m learning is to manage a generous tea spoon. It’s unbelievable when the green tea is fresh. The jasmine is really nice, not perfumey or dominant. I have another box waiting so I better start drinking :D
It smells so good. Once brewed the liquor is reddish, like a red ale. The assam base is quite nice, bold, malty & strong, most of the Earls I’ve tried have this assam base. I don’t know if my whole milk is killing the citrus/bergamot flave, but you hardly taste it, even without the milk. Have to try it again.
It has become my earl grey of the moment, last time I mentioned it was light I meant colour wise. As for flavour it’s a nice wake up slap, perfect for a morning or pick me up cup. It’s earthy, grassy, a wood aroma with hints of freshly pinched tea leaves. It tastes really fresh like it was recently packed ready to send out to the vendor. The bergamot tastes like it was carefully selected. I wonder if the same care is put to the rest of the TWG Teas. Love the amber liquor. Im not a fan of re steeping but this is the first tea I re steeped & tastes good, a little stronger, but good.
A really nice surprise. I’m used to earls with a bold black tea base, either ceylon or assam do the trick but this darjeeling is really not malty or bold, it’s light with a small hint of floral. It reminded me of the Oolong Earl Grey by Red Leaf Tea. In my humble opinion it shouldn’t be considered a black tea. The liquor is light ambar, the scent is floral & fresh & the bergamot is strong, but not over empowering. After brewing the bergamot looses it’s strong scent but I guess it’s because the flavor blends right in with the darjeeling & lingers beautifully after every sip.
I’ve tried a 2nd infusion & unlike most of the teas I have, this one holds the flavor pretty well. I think I’m in love <3
This is my second cup. Let’s say I was used to just brew my chai just like any other tea: Aprox 7 min, whip a little milk just to release the barista in me, add honey & ready. Tried this with the first cup & wasn’t pretty good. Today I followed the instructions & turned out perfect. I was a bit lazy but the result it’s pretty much worth it. The only thing that I’m confused about it that if this blend already has the black tea in it, the instructions says to add 1/2 tspn of your fave black blend, may be to add a little strength? but for me the amount of black in the blend is perfect. So far I’m liking Samovar teas a lot.
This Earl reminds me of why I started drinking tea. It’s a bergamot party which if you’re not crazy about it might taste over empowering. But it just blends in with the boldness of the black tea so nicely. It’s taking me some teacups to adjust the right brewing time, started with 5 minutes, then 8 & guess I’m staying with 4 minutes. I usually drink EG’s to wake up, with a dash of milk & honey, but experimented with raw sugar crystals & is a nice treat. On my top 3 EG’s now.
