Discovery tea box – Tea #7
A wrapped teabag from the teabox. I seem to only find this brand in teaboxes. I didn’t expect such a strong Ceylon. To me, Ceylon isn’t very strong. But this one was quite dark in the mug. With hints of strawberry. Definitely not the worst for Ceylon… I’m usually expecting a cardboard type flavor. This was more of a solid black tea. Maybe nothing special, but definitely not bad. Not the worst teabag I’ve had (and there have been plenty.)

A standard supermarket black tea in the Middle East. It’s drinkable & quite a bit better than the ubiquitous Lipton Yellow Label which dominates the region, but not quite up to Twinings level. But it’s cheap, and frequent supermarket promotions push the price down even further.
I surprisingly found this tea quite good. I am a big fan of Cardamom in general, (but wait, isn’t it cardamon?) Anyway, the flavour really stood out with a strong black base. I had no bitterness through any of the cups I steeped of this, but a light astringency toward the bottom. I did not add anything to it though, mind you. I would be glad to have it again if given the chance.
Flavors: Astringent, Cardamom
Oh man this is good!! Another one from the travelling tea box.
At first I was skeptical. Surely this one would be too much for me. But it is super pleasant!
Other reviews are so right. With a splash of milk, it’s just perfect. Spicy, refreshing, and brisk. Quite astringent mind you. My mouth is super dried out feeling.
Still, if I see this in a store, I’m gettin it!!!
From MissB! Thank you! (also a sipdown, whee!)
This tea is so good, IDEK. With milk, it’s just amazing. Strong base, WOW cardamom, dash of milk to even anything out (not that it really needs it, I don’t think), and yum.
… and I’m sitting here thinking I should have sent my last bag to Dexter. Sorry! But if you see this in a grocery store, get it. It’s actually really nice!
A sample from MissB! Thank you. :)
This is really really good. It’s exactly what it says it is – a cardamom black tea. Nice and strong, very spicy, amazing with a splash of milk.
I really like it, and if I was in the market for a cardamom tea I’d totally hunt this down and buy some. As it is, I have Too Many Teas. ;)
Grabbed this at a Middle Eastern Market in the Mission while I was in San Francisco. I’d say this is really coffee-like with zero coffee in it – although that may be because my son’s grandparents put cardamom in their coffee grounds prior to brewing. (Try it, it’s delicious!) Rich, full, heavy and thick tea, and surprisingly tasty for bagged.
Flavors: Cardamom, Thick
’Here’s Hoping’ traveling teabox Round #2 // Tea #17
Steep #1 // 35 min after boiling // 2 min
Ceylon green? I had to try this one. It looks like a dusty gunpowder green. The first sips are very marine & vegetal. Not as strong as a gunpowder. There is a nice sweetness to it. I like it! It’s a different green tea. Fellow teaboxers, give this one a chance!
This has a pretty nice strawberry flavour, tart, bright and fairly natural. Tastes convincingly like fresh strawberry. The flavouring is pretty strong over a light Ceylon base. The tea was more bop size rather than the dust you usually find in bags, faintly astringent and enough body to give the tea depth, but it`s flavouring is pretty lost to the flavouring. I taste just a bit of bitterness underneath. The tea has enough depth that it could take milk. Not bad for a tea I only bought so that I could meet the minimum for debit!
