Surprisingly balanced! Strong earthy and maty notes from base tea, no sweetness, solid orange notes and some spices in the background. Nicely warming and definitely worth repeating!

drank Liquorice by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

The aroma is dominated by liquorice, but you can smell some oolong notes.
And the taste? Very sweet from liquorice, that totally shadows everything else.

Very one dimensional tea. There should be 50% liquorice in it, not 70%, because both oolong and black tea are as well nonexistent.

Flavors: Earth, Licorice, Sweat

Both aroma and taste are totally dominated by liquorice. I really like it, but I realise that a lot of people can’t stand it.

drank Just Indulging by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Strong, sweet aroma of blueberry cake with cinnamon. A bit artificial, but indulging indeed.
Malty base tea, slight blueberry notes, not too strong cinnamon note. Nothing spectacular, but quite passable and drinkable.

drank Calm Chamomile by Pickwick
658 tasting notes

Sipdown number 17. This is actually quite good. I find that chamomile is one of those herbs that really can be excellent in a teabag. This particular version is gently sweet with a hint of hay and a lot of that apple-like flavor certain chamomile has. So soothing.

drank Green tea with jasmine by Pickwick
658 tasting notes

Sipdown number 16! I have completely failed at the advent concept so I am retconning this endeavor into a December sipdown challenge.

This is an ok bagged jasmine. Not as good as loose or even pyramid bags, but not disgusting either. Just meh.

drank Golden China by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Strong earthy aroma. And besides it? I don’t know whether I smell a very, very subtle jasmine note, or am I just imagining it, knowing that it allegedly should be present…
The taste is quite bland, very mellow, rather dusty, again with only subtle or none jasmine.

After drinking this so called tea for a while I can state, that the jasmine is present after all, but it’s barely noticeable. Creating such crap is an achievement in itself even for Pickwick.

drank Tropical Fruit by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Passion fruit, mango and pineapple are evident in aroma. Banana – very subtle, I probably wouldn’t sense it if not the ingredient list. Slight earthy notes from the base tea in the background.
Passion fruit dominates the taste, with banana a little behind and other fruits and base tea notes in the back.
All in all it’s not bad, really fruity.

drank Lemon by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Good balance between malty character of the base tea and fresh notes of lemon peels in aroma.
In taste the peel notes are dominant, the base tea is in the background.
Nice, refreshing, with strong essential oils.

Flavors: Lemon, Lemon Zest, Malt

Very strong and very fruity aroma, with evident notes of blackberry, raspberry and strawberry.
The taste is not that rich. There are fruity notes, of course, no sweetness at all, very subtle sourness and some maltiness in background, but the overall impression is very far from overwhelming.

drank Indian Assam by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Nice deep colour.
Strong malty flavour.
The taste is quite characterful for a Pickwick, rich but at the same rounded, with only slight astringency.
Nothing special, but for a Pickwick it’s quite extraordinary. :)

drank Earl Grey by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Boring, bland aroma with bergamot on the sensory threshold.
Generic corporate black tea as the base, with subtle malty notes and again, barely discernible traces of bergamot.

All in all it’s a just a corporate vision of Earl Grey.

Flavors: Malt

drank Strawberry by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Very strong but rather artificial strawberry aroma, like in sweets.
Nice, maltish base, subtle strawberry notes (in taste they seem more natural).
The overall impression is not bad, especially for a Pickwick.

Flavors: Malt, Strawberry

drank Winter Glow by Pickwick

I received a box of this as a gift and fell in love with it. I don’t use sweetener anymore, but this tea doesn’t need it. When I taste it, I immediately think of apple cider, but it doesn’t have apples in it; it’s orange. I think I taste apple cider because the same kinds of spices are used in it.
Every person I’ve let try this has loved it. I ordered several more boxes for myself when I managed to find it online.

Very weak aroma.
And the taste? Very generic poor black tea. No bitterness, no character, no strong notes. Not so bad in the morning, but it has nothing to focus.

drank Turkish Apple by Pickwick
117 tasting notes

Smells just like a baked apple with cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. Fantastic!
In taste it’s too bland, the apple and spicy notes are too subtle, too much in the background.
Adding a bit of sugar helps focus the taste a little, but I remain disappointed.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Vanilla

drank Mango by Pickwick

Really strong and sweet mango aroma.
Still strong in taste, but not as dominant. Too bad the basic blakc tea is very bland and mediocre.

drank Orange by Pickwick

The proper black tea is very bland, and the orange peel flavors are too subtle. I suppose that this might taste better with a little sugar.

Cinnamon is the most evident, there’s also nice spiciness from pepper and ginger, as well as subtle anise and clove notes.
The problem is, there’s not enough tea in it, so it tastes much better when brewed along with an additional bag of black tea
And even better when made more “chai” style – with a solid splash of milk and some sugar.

Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Pepper

Refreshing scent of lemongrass combined with lemon peels.
Refreshing taste with subtle bitterness, very slightly sour.
Casual but good.
