14 Tasting Notes


This was a truly delicious tea. I liked the way the orange, spices, vanilla, and almond all blended together so well that they became one flavor. I also liked the fact that I could taste the black China tea. The spices didn’t overwhelm the tea the way they can so often in teas with added flavorings.

This was one of the most perfectly blended black-lemon iced teas I have ever tasted. I was very pleased that the lemon didn’t overwhelm the flavor of the black tea. I like my tea unsweetened, but you could definitely sweeten it without weakening the flavor.

I loved this tea. I drank the version in teabags, but the tea pieces were big so it had full flavor. The teabags are muslin and very roomy. I could taste the tea and the liquorish and other spices. It was all very balanced and smooth.

Earl Grey is my favorite tea in the whole world. I love the Twinings in the tin. When you lift the lid, it fills the air with a beautiful aroma. I have a tiny tea pot that brews about 1 1/2 cups at a time. I use two teaspoons of Twinings Earl Grey, pour on the boiling water, and let it sit for about six minutes. Then I pour it all into an extra large cup.
Before I drink it, I just hold it and breath in the fragrance for a long time, waiting for it to cool. I never drink it when I’m in a hurry. I want to savor it for as long as I can.

I am a writer, an educator, and a tea lover. I write about tea, mostly, but I write about other things, too. I want to see what other tea drinkers are doing out there.
