244 Tasting Notes
hmm, this one is sneaky. Initially I was put off by the citrus peel and cornflowers? in the mix and the scent was off…not the powerful bergamot oil smell I expected. I figured, at best, this would be like Twinnings’ Lady Earl Grey. Once steeped (212&6-7 minutes), allowed to cool…here comes the flavor! Earl Grey it is! Very flavorful with a long finish. I’ll put this one on my favorites list.
(and a nod to teaequalbliss for pointing this one out to me, TU)
(edit: research indicates that the citrus is likely bergamot peel!)
A nice spicy Chai. I drink Chai’s straight..no milk..sometimes a touch of sugar. This Chai was inherently sweet tasting…a by-product of the solid cinnamon presence. Ginger and Clove provided that spicy, tingle-in-the-mouth kick. I could identify cardamon seeds in the mix as well. Good flavor, well balanced.
OK, something so bad, I had to create an entry that I otherwise wouldn’t have bothered with. I had a sweet “tea” from Wendy’s yesterday. OMG! There was nothing “tea” about it…open a sugar packet and suck on it! Seriously, I couldn’t identify any tea flavor, artificial or otherwise. I ended up brewing some other tea when I got back to the office and used Wendy’s as sweenter! If I could put multiple thumbs down on this stuff, I would.
