10081 Tasting Notes
I keep meaning to try this tea cold but I guess that will have to come another day! I’m not a great fan of this tea. It’s not a terrible tea but there’s something about this blend that just doesn’t quite tickle my fancy. I’m sure it has a home with someone out there who will appreciate it, but I won’t be picking it up again unless I manage to get around to brewing it cold and love it heh
Let me preface by saying I’m not a fan of English breakfast teas. I find them fairly “boring” and there’s usually something else I’d rather drink, though I don’t hate English breakfast.
This English breakfast is, as my other half put it, a better English breakfast tea. :) I enjoyed the smoothness of the tea and the subtle favors that came out as I drank it. In essence, if I had to drink an English breakfast tea, this one would be first on my list.
Loooooove the smell coming off of this! It reminds me of cider or some childhood memory from winter. This is for sure one going on my list of winter teas As the second sample I’m trying from Epi Tea – I have to say this is my favorite so far. I don’t add milk/sugar to my tea and the flavor isn’t too intense.
Tried this iced and still not impressed. I’ll have to try a few more white teas to see if it’s that particular type of tea that I’m not partial too or if it this particular tea. While it tastes nice, the flavor isn’t strong and there is a bit of an after taste I don’t like. I’ll try it a few more times to make sure but likely on my list of things to share with someone else who might love it.
Pre-release sample! My samples arrived today so I dived right in…which to choose? I ultimately went with the one that had the fewest reviews here :)
I’m with Michelle on the convenience of the pyramid bags. The scent from the tea through me off a little bit – it brings back memories of being sick and having to down that weird red triminic cough syrup.
On the plus side, the taste of the tea is nothing like that! It’s a bit mild for me as I prefer my teas stronger (at least so far) and the flavors don’t fight for attention. While the tea didn’t knock my socks off, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends who enjoyed a milder tea.
I’m not sure if a bit of honey/sugar would have enhanced the flavors – something I’ll have to try another time :) overall not a bad little tea.
I tried this today iced and wasn’t terribly impressed. Maybe it was just the strength of the brewing (a friend made it) but the flavors didn’t pop the way that some of the reviewers have mentioned. Was it blueberry? Sure. But it wasn’t anything to write home about. I’ll likely give it another shot when I can make it myself though to be sure.
