I have had this tea for a while but I wasn’t impressed at first. I think my tastebuds were baked by too much strong coffee and nicotine. Since I’ve given up those vices I am enjoying my tea much more. I am not in love with Taylor’s and Harrogate Earl Grey but I do like it very much. The tea base has always seemed a little light to me but the bergamot has a good amount of intensity. Over all the tea has a wonderful floral nose and a light citrus after taste. This tea also holds up well to a second steeping. The second steeping is lighter on the citrus of course but hints of vanilla and actual tea taste come through. Both the first and second steeping are good hot or cold but room temp might be the best of all.
I don’t generally like this kind of tea, but Amazon sent it to me as a mistake, so I gave it a shot. Was even worse than I expected – had a bad sour taste, with some bitterness. Even adding milk didn’t really help. I ended pouring most of it out. This tea will live in the work kitchen for others to drink. It is a very fine loose leaf – would not recommend for someone using a normal tea ball, needs a very fine strainer.
This is a tea that has that “classic” tea aroma when steeping. I would not know how to more precisely describe that smell, but I will add that it is lovely and evocative and reminiscent of long ago rainy mornings in early spring. As for the taste, when two teaspoons of sugar are added, the taste of this tea is absolutely solid, reassuring, traditional, malty delight. This is a tea you can really count on to give you that flavor, that boost, that comfort that you are looking for in your tea. I salute the makers of this tea!

Taste:Wow, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I picked up this individual tea packet at my local British shop (I live in the US). I never tried a Taylors Of Harrogate Tea, so i thought why not at only $.50. Opening the foil packet I noticed the tea bag is quite large, bigger than your typical bag. The aroma of the steeped cup was citrus accompanied by a reddish brown hue.I let the cup go for 5 minutes as for the taste it was very bitter difficult to drink with out making a face. To see if this cup could be helped I added a packet honey pearls. It helped to greatly reduce the amount of bitterness without altering the flavor profile but not add much sweetness.Overall I didn’t enjoy this tea which also left a dry mouth feel once I finished my cup.
*update: I took the same used tea bag a steeped it in about 2 cups of water & it was much better than the first cup & very light in flavor with no bitterness.
I’ve been taing this tea for a week now as an english breakfast tea, with a hint of mil and a dessert spoon of honey.
I’m a red version lover of this tea, simply amazing, so I wanted to taste this one.
The thing is that’s too wea for me to do a propper english breakfast, it’s more a more delicate tea, with less caffeine, velvety and weaker. espite all that, I thing that’s a really good choice for someone that wants just this.
I’ll have to taste it alone to see how it tastes without mil and honey.
Pretty good for a bagged tea blend. Has a pure taste—no additional flavors outside of the black tea fannings used in the blend. I can taste a bit of maltiness to the tea—not unusual for black teas sourced in India.
It was a gift and I enjoyed it, but don’t know if I’d go out of my way for it again.
Somebody left a stack of these bags on the pay-it-forward table at work. I snagged them, chiefly because you don’t often see a bagged Assam that simply advertises itself as an Assam.
It performs as advertised. Not top shelf, but a decent bagged tea that isn’t sharp or acidic and behaves exactly as you expect with some low, sweet, bready flavor. Excellent choice for work or groggy mornings.
Sipdown 54/375! I’ve decided I want to try to get to 200 tasting notes by the end of the year, and under 400 teas in my cupboard by my 3rd Steepster birthday. Since I don’t know when I’m going to be working (zero-hours contract) and I have family over tonight for a pre-Christmas party, I’m trying to fit a couple of notes/sipdowns in now before it gets too hectic.
I made this the same way I did when I had the flu, and I’m pleased to report that it wasn’t just the illness making me think this tasted nice! Man I wish I’d brewed it this way more often. More concentrated with milk and sugar, the citrus flavour comes out way more and it isn’t just a lame-ass chai, it’s the embodiment of Christmas in tea form. Still, I’m glad we parted on a high.
