553 Tasting Notes
I am thankful that I stole two teabags of this from my boyfriend because one just isn’t enough for me. It is a really nice bold flavor. The bergamot is a little bit lighter than what I am used to, but I think it makes for a slightly better cup. Mostly because it doesn’t make the tea get bitter at the end.
I took a Chinese Breakfast: Certified Organic Yunnan Black Tea tea bag out of the assorted box that my boyfriend had. I love him to death because he lets me steal his tea.
I wasn’t sure if I had brewed it long enough because it brewed to this lovely golden topaz color instead of the deep brown I have been used to with my black teas. But I had brewed it for four minutes and I did remember that different teas brew up to different colors. This was the first time I had had this tea and it was good.
I drank it hot with nothing added.
It tasted light and fresh. It also tasted sweeter than the English Breakfast tea I have been drinking. I really liked that even though it was a black tea, it didn’t taste heavy like I was expecting it to. It was very, very nice and I really wish I had more.
Time to get back into tea. I find it difficult to keep up a consistent tea habit when I am at school because I don’t trust the kettle at school and I keep forgetting to bring tea bags to meals. But when I’m at home, everything is fair game.
This has been my comfort tea recently. Hot with a drop of milk.
I took a bunch of teabags from my boy so I could try them at school. I finally got around to trying this one.
It was nice. It smelled like vanilla and I got a small taste of vanilla. I think the only problem was I had someplace to be and I had to eat and drink fast so I didn’t get to enjoy the tea that much. But it was pretty good.
This tea just stares at me each time I make a cup of tea at school. Now, I don’t have a whole lot of tea in my room so it depends on what they have in the cafeteria. This one was pretty good. I didn’t even have to put milk in it like I do for some of the teas. It is a little less flavorful than my Tea Company Earl but I wouldn’t turn it down.
I am down to this tea after finishing off another box of Twinings Irish Breafast.
I have figured out that I really like this tea with a little bit of milk. It doesn’t overpower the tea and it just rounds out the flavor a bit. I even got my boy to try some and he liked it fairly well. He prefers Numi though.
