Slight jasmine aroma, slight straw notes from the base green tea.
Strong malty taste with solid jasmine notes.
Not bad, certainly better than I expected and better than an average Pickwick tea.

Nice fruity aroma.
The taste is a mixture of decent green tea and fruits, warming and refreshing at the same time. Rather watery, but passable.

drank Green Tea Mint by Pickwick

Strong peppermint aroma, with subtle green tea and citrusy notes in the background.
The taste is well balanced, with slight base tea bitterness, mint and lemon grass/lemon peels.
Really good as far as Pickwick goes (they usually don’t set the bar high…).

Overwhelming aroma after opening the can!
Brews to a straw colour, After steeping the flavour is dominated by apple and quince, very fruity and intense mix.
The taste is rich, with solid green tea base and fruity notes only in the background.
Good tea. I need to try it as a coldbrew. In fact the manufacturer strongly recommends it.

Milk, caramel and sweetness are dominant, you can barely taste the black tea. Not actually bad and it really brings the proper chai to mind, but could use more of the tea component.

But if dissolved not in water, but in previously brewed black tea, it becomes much more interesting, more rich and complex. I suggest this way of preparing.

Flavors: Caramel, Milk, Spices, Sweat

Poor quality base green tea, strong astringency, very low lemongrass and lemon peel aroma (and adding lemon peel to “enhance” the sparsely used lemongrass is pathetic). Never again.

Flavors: Astringent

Bio

I drink tea almost constantly.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
