27 Tasting Notes
It was okay at first but before I got halfway through it, it just started tasting like cough medicine. gross. the pomegranate just seemed too artificial
probably my favorite rooibos-based tea so far. tasty and sweet without being as shockingly sugary as soda or juice. makes me feel better on a cold night without keeping me awake. the blueberry flavor is in there definitely but without overwhelming the other tastes of the tea.
I like most forms of earl grey, but I found this one to be a bit too weird for my taste. I found the vanilla to be a strange combination with the bergamot. I would try it again but was not impressed initially.
I didn’t like this tea the first time I tried it with the recommended 200 degree water and 4-5 min steep time. I found it to be a little too oversteeped for my liking. I made it again now with a lower temp and shorter steep time but with more loose tea and I like it a lot better. the taste is stronger without that gross overcooked taste that comes with excess steeping. I added a bit of sugar too.
I tried this tea on a whim. I liked it a lot. it’s nice to find a black tea with spice that isn’t overwhelming like a lot of chais are.
a very solid earl grey tea. thought it was a little too earthy at first but I like it a lot more now. has become a staple for me in the morning. I like it with sugar but no milk. and it’s pretty cheap for teavana.
steeped about 3 minutes this tea is at it’s best. they’ve definitely improved it since last year. good combination of three different blends of tea.
though still not my favorite, it is a decent cup.
was kind of boring in my opinion. I prefer lighter teas and this one was just too light, I felt like I was simply drinking hot water. not at all bad tasting, but completely unremarkable. I would try again to make sure but my first impression was it being pretty meh-tastic.
