225 Tasting Notes

Malt, honey and strawberry jam in aroma.
The taste is malty and fruity, with no sweetness. Nice brew where the fruity flavours don’t overshadow the base tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Jam, Malt, Strawberry

I like teas, which are fruity, but you still notice the base. Unfortunately here it is not easy to find.

Balanced aroma with base malty black tea, raspberry and passionfruit.
Very watery, bland taste, barely giving the impression of drinking black tea and with only slight traces of fruit.
Well, it’s Lipton, I didn’t expect much, but certainly more than this.

Very delicate herbal aroma.
And so delicate, faint, watery taste.There are some flowery and herbal sensations, but way too weak. It’s like drinking water, not a herbal steep. Huge disappointment, because I was really looking forward to taste this particular blend.

The bundle consists almost entirely of flower inflorescences.
Smells really nicely, flowery, with oregano and wild thyme dominating.
Unfortunately the taste is very faint, watery (I brew all the herbal teas from the set in the same cup and using the same amount of water. There are some nice herbal and flowery nuances, but certainly not enough.

Interesting composition. Very leafy, with strong bison grass notes, a bit flowery, a bit summer-y. Too bad I don’t sense the pine shoots much in the aroma.
But they are very evident in taste. Fortunately I beer geek and I love heavily hopped beers with a lot of bitterness, because this tea is really bitter (in a lingering way, that get’s a bit unpleasant). And has a lot of bison grass flavours.
Good idea and good choice of ingredients, but I would limit the pine shoots amount a little.

Pines in aroma is hard to have, when it is mixed with other herbs. But hey, I love beer with pine and resinous taste!

I know that. Here it was completely losy behind the other ingredients.
And I also love it in beer, but there it almost always comes from hops.

Very flowery aroma, with lavender and (I presume) heather and hawthorn flowers in the foreground.
Plus a lot of lemon balm in the taste. It indeed is a very soothing, relaxing herbal composition

Brews into a beautiful brown colour, like black tea.
The aroma is heavily dominated by mint, with only traces of sage and oregano (I have no idea how sideritis should smell like).
The taste is more balanced, very herbal, a bit leafy, very soothing and refreshing.

Strong aroma, herbal, straw-like, flowery.
Very leafy taste, delicate, melllow.
I’m not a herb expert, so it’s hard for me to describe more sensations, but the tea surely is interesting.

Blend of two herbs I never tasted before.
Strange herbal aroma, a bit like mint, a bit like sage, a bit soapy.
Distinct taste, soapy, chamomile-like, slightly sweet.
As a one-time brew it’s nice and unique, but I probably wouldn’t like to drink it more often.

Interesting tea packaging.

dreamloomer

It’s a gift set I got for Christmas. It’s a very clever way of packaging herbal teas, because it allows to use the whole herbs, bundled together on a bamboo stick.

Martin Bednář

It’s indeed unique and I haven’t seen it before.

dreamloomer

If you’re interested, you can buy herbal teas packaged this way at the producer’s website: darynatury.pl
Unfortunately not everything is translated into English, but since you’re Czech, you probably understand at least a bit in Polish.

A blend of wild mints and catnip must smell and taste with mint, obviously.
So yes, it’s a lot of mint, very refreshing and soothing. Nothing less, nothing more.

Bio

I drink tea almost all the time.

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.
