5 Tasting Notes
This is a lovely treat tea! It is good iced or hot, sweet or not. I turned a non tea lover onto this tea and she searched for it and kept it in stock. Then I turned a tea lover onto it as well. It’s a solid tea, and a good staple to keep for quiet afternoons designated for day dreaming. It’s great to give to guests as well. You can really taste the coconut and rum. Quite yummy.
I’m not always in the mood for Earl Grey but I buy this tea loose and keep it on hand for Grey cravings. Earl Grey was my favorite starter tea, and the loose variety tastes what I think proper loose leaf earl should taste like. It’s a bit bitter… but I like the bite. It’s a bit oily, but it gives it character. It’s a good mid priced loose leaf to keep on hand (mine was only 7.99). I recommend!
One of my new favorite autumn teas! Sad it was seasonal so bought a large tin full which I don’t think will last the year. It is very tasty but is also very messy. Since it mostly has things in it that aren’t just tea leaves DO NOT leave in your steeper for hours. Wash it immediately or suffer glazey ick all over your steeper. Also leaves films on things. So savor fast. A good tea to use the Rishi bags with. Good for resteeping on a rainy day you want a spicy treat. Good sweet or non sweet! Unique!! But could have more oolong.
