6 Tasting Notes
Prince Vladimir makes a nice cup of tea.
It’s very light, sweet and refreshing.
The vanilla in the tea makes it smooth and easy to drink, very relaxing.
I had it black but I imagine it would be just as nice with milk and something to sweeten it (honey, sugar, etc.), though it would make the tea more heavy and I would assume you would have steep it a little long so the flavour of tea is not lost to the milk.
The teabags themselves smell lovely, shame the actual cup of tea doesn’t smell that amazing and it tastes terrible.
It smells chocolatey, spicy, sweet and warm though the taste is very different, it is slight sweet and warm, very artificial and has no real taste of any spices.
I have found that with the Yogi teas that I’ve tried, they all have this sweet and artificial taste that dominates over any other flavour that may be there.
So if you are after a spicy tea you better off going for a chai tea instead.
The prefect cup of tea in morning when you need gently poke to wake up.
Rich, dark and with a touch of citrus.
Perfect when made with Scottish spring water with a dash of milk, though work just as well served black.
This is my favourite everyday black tea.
Though I did find the UK Twinning Earl Grey is a bit stronger than Twinning’s European brand.
I was in need of a cup of decent black caffeinated tea and since my cupboard is and has been for sometime,
barren of my usual Earl Grey, I was in a bit of a bind.
So in my desperation I went through my collection of tea and found a small tin of St Petersburg, which did smell quiet appealing (slight hint of Earl Grey from the bergamot).
The taste was light, refreshing and quelled my need for black tea but it was not amazing like Troika and Anastasia (Kusmi Tea Russian Earl Grey blends), though this could be because I’m just addicted to Earl Grey.
If you like a warm and light Earl grey taste to your tea this would be the blend for you, though I prefer the tea to standout a bit more from the other ingredients and the overall taste to be a little more bold, full bodied.
A nice cup of tea overall.
