I have to stop buying black tea, thinking that because it’s “flavoured”, I’m miraculously going to love it. That being said, this isn’t bad. I think they achieved what they were going for, flavour-wise.
A black tea base which is a little bitter and astringent with a predominant coconut taste. You get the tropcal vibe but I don’t get anything pineapple-y per se, it’s just a hint of sweetness but it works. Nothing lactonic at all. I’m wondering if this might be nice with some almond milk and sugar? Perhaps. Still, it absolutely does remind one of a Pina Colada so it gets points for what it advertises. A solid 7/10!

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Coconut, Sweet, Tropical

Sounds like this might ice down nicely when the weather gets hot.

Good idea! I have plenty of it so I think I’ll try it!

Another Winners/Homesense find. (Can you tell that I work there?!?!) Haha
A lovely, simple, mild, smooth green tea with the flavour of plants (not vegetal though, milder than that) and a slight tinge of citrus orange. It’s quite understated and I knew straight away that this would be perfect as a morning-time tea before I leave for work. Destined to be a new staple!

Flavors: Green, Orange, Plants

Since I’m guessing Winners/Homesense works a lot like my favorite outlet stores (grab it NOW because it might not ever be here again), you are perfectly positioned for some great finds!

I’ve worked there for 7 years and have found so many amazing things! Yes, you have to get it when you see it or else you lose out! Our Winners and Homesense stores are the same at the American TJMaxx and HomeGoods stores. My store is a combo store so I get the best of both!

This tea is such strange.

Although I took it from huge bags – it was completely fresh (well wrapped in foil wrapping) and I thought it is some fresh tea when I smelled the bag.

It was huge hit by grassy notes of green teas, little bit of grass seed but no way hay-like aromas! And then floral notes. Mostly present were chamomile, naturally, but hints of meadow flowers too. That counts as well for brew aromas

To the taste – it was actually delicious! Green tea was similar to aromas, that said mostly grassy and overall floral, meadow flowers and, athlough I am not fan of chamomile – it was great there.

To be honest I could not imagine green tea with chamomile – but it works fairly well! Trying fresh tea with fresh chamomile would work better, loose leaf than tea bag as well..

But decent! If you want to try something new… I can suggest trying it.

Flavors: Floral, Grass, Grass Seed

You’re right…you don’t see those two “basics” blended together very often. Sounds interesting!

derk

Oof, that company’s website. I’ll pass.

Martin Bednář

gmathis: yep, exactly my thoughts. Two basic teas and together. And moreover it works!

derk: Ahh, I had open US website to see what’s wrong. Everything!

From huge bags, so old.

Probably age has indeed affected the taste. It was nice, bit chocolate like base tea with malty notes, but linden blossom? It was there, but very weak and almost non-present. Such a shame.

Overall, quite okay. I have expected more linden notes; as dry bag it was very aromatic, but… when brewed, it’s not.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

It’s a “ho-hum” kind of tea. Rather boring in my opinion. The green tea flavour is far too light and the lemon flavour is barely noticeable. I guess I should be grateful that it wasn’t bitter at least.

Flavors: Green

Another tea from huge exchange. Another random picked, this time black tea.

Well, it is what you can expect. It is black tea with herbal notes, maybe bit too strong are those. When it cools down the tea base is stronger. Probably lots of not carefully selected herbals are in, because I notice as well some woody notes.

Overall, it is not a bad tea. But maybe past from its best, or just bit boring one. Black tea base not much present, overpowered with herbals – making it sweet as well bit woody for my tooth.

Flavors: Herbaceous, Sweet, Wood

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML
