2786 Tasting Notes
A tin of this was a gift from my boyfriend, who knows my love of tea, and also my love of Darjeeling. So when he returned with this expensive brew from Teavana, I was eager to try it.
Meh. Its a perfectly drinkable cup, but its nothing special, and is rather light for a Darjeeling.
Still, I will drink the rest of this, but I wont be heading out to get it myself.
Ah. I like this. This is a no frills rose tea. I realize that its a polarizing topic, but I really like rose teas. And this one is as straightforward as a rose black can be. It has a soft and (yes) perfumy aftertaste. I like this, but I realize that its not everyones cup of tea. But on a cold and rainy morning (in June! What up, weather?) its just the right thing.
I am about to commit tea blasphemy. I don’t really like Earl Grey. I try! I keep trying, but I never can really find one that speaks to me.
Lady Grey, however, is a different matter. I do like Lady Grey. The citrus just really works for me. This is a nice tea, for what it is (see, in tea bags) (or, at least, mine is). A solid, not inspired but perfectly presentable cup of tea.
Oooh, I love vanilla.
An unexpected crisis after a very long day kept me awake last night much too long, and due to my canine companion, I needed to get up early. So with five hours of sleep under my belt, I turned to a tea that would both wake me up and help manage stress. Vanilla black, you never disappoint. I have brewed up a trusty pot of this, and it makes everything just a little bit better. Highly recommended, especially if you, like me, cannot get enough vanilla.
I find this to be quite a full bodies camomile, if that makes any sense. I find most camomiles to be a little bland, so its nice that this one has a distinct flavor to it. Its almost a little bit spicy, which I like, but still a good, soothing cup in the evening. And the different floral notes are interesting. I particularly was interested in the addition of rose, which I hadnt seen before.
