I was a bit afraid of this one, because of the cherry. Now, I don’t know. I can’t seem to find the cherry? Or really identify anything else. It’s definitely flavored, and it’s a fruity flavor, but beyond that, I have no idea.
Not sure if the flavor was lost much faster than it should have been(the box says 12/2019) or what else.
This is a delightfully robust black tea that stands up well to milk. It does get bitter fast if you over-brew it, but brewed for 3 minutes or less in just barely boiling water it comes out rich and chocolatey with just the slightest hint of smoke. Also, this shouldn’t matter to me as much as it does, but the tin is just so darn cute! One of my favorite breakfast blends.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Smoke
Sipdown! And a way overdue one – I don’t know exactly how old this is, but it’s at least a few months older than my tin of Anastasia, and the date on the bottom of that says 01/2019, so most likely this one was past its best-by date. I think most flavor had been lost, but it wasn’t outright unpleasant – I guess none of the ingredients are prone to going rancid?
(I really need to find someone to send some of the Anastasia to, I do like it but have way too much of it)
Pretty sure I’ve never had a white Earl Grey before, so it’s hard to compare. Though, so far there isn’t much to compare anyway, because it mainly just seems really light/mild. There is a sour-fruity, citrusy taste, and just a hint of the white tea, but I think I’ll need to make it stronger next time.
My brother in law brought this tea for me from France. He doesn’t know much about tea and asked someone there to recommend some good teas for a family member. Unfortunately neither he nor the person selecting the tea knew of my disdain for hibiscus in teas.
From the dry scent, I could tell it would be a tart, fruity tea. I prepared in advanced by mixing in some honey before I drank it. It helped a bit but that devil dog we call hibiscus still is prominent. I cannot fault a dog for being a dog. But I don’t think this tea is on any of my favorite lists.
Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Tart
