This isn’t as awful as I thought it would be based on everyone elses comments. It’s still not wonderful but I was worried I was going to give it a “1” for a rating…I will go a bit higher tho…I was really wanting to like this one then was a tad influenced by other reviews…but am still trying it for myself, of course. I think I was thinking it was going to taste like Pumpkin Pie. Oh well. Then when I came to the conclusion it wasn’t…I was thinking the spices that were in Pumpkin Pie. Still kind of wrong. To me, it’s very much like a Chai.
So, I’ve finally finished this sample. I didn’t have enough for the two cup pot that I wanted to make, so I added enough decaf ceylon to make up the difference. It’s good, but as I’ve been having really good tea lately, it’s not as good as I remembered. The other tea takes an edge off the earl grey that I didn’t notice before. So, I still am happy with this as a decaf option, but don’t think as highly of it as I did before.
So, I just couldn’t shake that berry-flavored medicine feeling for the last cup, so I didn’t even finish it before brewing up a cup of this. Yay for something more like tea. I spent a while looking in my cupboard for something decaf, and I realized I’m down to just a little bit of the decaf adagio sampler at home. I’m wondering how long I can draw it out (or if I really can make myself drink the herbals/rooibos samplers in lieu of the decafs).
I wanted something tea-like, but with low caffeine, so this is what I ended up with. It ended up being a fitting choice as we just watched the first episode of MI5. However, I didn’t just have this plain as I typically do. I had read someone’s tasting note (I’m sorry, I forget who!) about adding some sugar and just a touch of milk to their Earl Grey, so I gave that a go with agave nectar and soymilk. Yum! And, I might actually prefer that for this decaf cup. Decaf never tastes like Real Tea to me, so it’s nice to mask that a bit.
over steeped this :( i can finally taste the pepperyness of this now though. i think i like it stronger. i was looking for a cup of something boring and un flavored, but i didnt get it lol. this tea is always interesting when i have it. it has subtle differences each time and i look forword to the next new thing that this tea pops up for me :)
very nice, im drinking it now :) it has a nice flavor. not as strong as i would like, maybe i could steep it longer but it is a very nice cup of tea! i added sugar to it (like i do with all my teas) i will deffinatly be making more of this. ill try re-steeping it if im in the mood for another cup once this is gone :) it has a good leafy after taste and no bitterness at all.
This I’s green tea. And the green leaves a a fair sized. I’t smells slightly like green tea also. I steeped I’t a really short time. The taste a light not heavy or overly strong green tea. I’t luckily I’s not grassy to me also. Being a got this from a buddy and green tea I’s usually drank by me when I’t has fruit in I’t. This I’s really drinkable but not going to become a favorite.
