23 Tasting Notes
This was the tea I drank growing up… it doesn’t live up to my memories now I’ve reviewed it in a semi-professional way. It has that classic earl grey taste, but it doesn’t taste fresh. It feels stagnant and dull. To be honest, I still drink it regularly as I have a box of 100 tea bags to get through. It’s an everyday I-just-need-a-quick-cup rather than a great tea that I take the time to savour properly.

Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon
Bought this as a Valentine’s gift for myself – it was disappointing. The name would suggest some sort of rose based tea… but actually, there was no hint of rose at all. The blooming tea ball expanded to reveal 2 very pretty marigold blooms and the tiniest rose bud I’ve ever seen.
It was delicious, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. If you’re still interested in trying this tea, check our my full review https://www.immortalwordsmith.co.uk/whittard-rose-bloom-flowering-tea-review/
Flavors: Floral, Grass, Nutty, Sweet
I have this loose jasmine green tea in the new Whittard Tea Discoveries caddy. It’s quite good, I love the soothing aroma and flavour once brewed. I buy it online… for the quality, I think it’s a little overpriced but still worth it.
It has a clear, golden yellow colour when brewed and a light, slightly sweet flavour. I have noticed that some batches have a little musty taste to them – I would guess because they’re old stock.
