600 Tasting Notes

It is a day for a cup of hot tea; after bringing fresh water to boil, then pour over tea bag and let brew for about 3 minutes. Wanted it to be mildly strong since drinking it with no sugar, lemon or milk as suggested for desired cup of tea.

It is smoky in flavor and a full bodied drink.

This is an every day kind of tea and economically sound; less than a penny to a cup, although I cannot do the math.

ms.aineecbeland

Really nothing exciting about this tea; when one opens the box, all the tea bags are individually wrapped in a red with blue border paper wrapping and the box smells nice enough; smoky in fact. Other wise it stops there. Blahhhhhhhhh, sorry. I will not be buying Bromley again, I don’t think.

ms.aineecbeland

Stored this one away; back to my Orange Pekoe daily brew and store brand Green tea. Sorry Bromley is not for me it seems, although their websites have great recipes.

This is tea sampler I received with another purchase a whilst back. I decided to give this a try; as it is a day for remedy so a mint cup is the brew of choice.

It is recommended that pure boiling water be poured over one tea bag in a cup, immersing it for about 1 minute; 2 minutes (for strong). The aroma is lovely with the mint; freshness in the cup; first sip is strong depicting almost a black tea instead of green.

Over time the strength in the brew is weakened and flavor is to be enjoyed immensely. I decided to have this with my regular green tea (store brand) with the spring mint as flavoring for the remainder of the days brewing.

To drink tea is to calm the nerves, the anxieties etc. and I associate mint with curing something; an ailment or discomfort; soothing the mind when tested beyond its limit as this mind has been put through the ringer.

Another grateful cup, tea sampling mint tea. Thank you Bon Jour Gourmet for sending me this sampler.

Thank you to the Republic of Tea for sending me this Pomegranate Green Tea sampler. I decided to give it a try today.

This tea is rich with the flavor of Pomegranate, making for a very sweet cup, liquor like brew. I am grateful for having this cup; I sip it slowly; as opposed to slurping.

Lightly sipping this tea while taking in the sweetness in the flavor of the pome. Looking forward to the day, is my mantra. I pray it last.

This Premium Pekoe Blend is very good for iced tea by the jar.

It is brewed hot; steeping time for between 3-5 minutes (using one tea bag per desired cup) usually I would used between 3-5 bags for one full jar/gallon. After letting it cool I would pour into jar and for daily jaunts out and about it would be transported in a smaller tea bottle at times a small slice of lemon is added. No sugar.

It is best with some ice in the tea bottle to preserve the coolness of the drink.

Premium blend is not costly at all. Should not have to apologize for lack of tea name brand.

I am down to my last few bags of the Pekoe tea…a good thing since I can’t wait to open the new box of Bromley Estate Tea. I am just counting the days, by weeks end for sure. I have to remember to buy some lemon/limes. Ice tea heavan, well a bit.

ms.aineecbeland

Used up the last of the Pekoe tea. I think of it as Pekoe, Sheriff Roscoe Pekoe from that show Dukes of Hazard folks…and that rowdy Sheriff Roscoe and his assistant always saying Roscoe Pekoe…etc. Nothing to do with tea. Since Pekoe is the leaf’s top layer and length; Roscoe Pekoe was a little guy for a sheriff.

Tea is gone, box is empty…adding it to future shopping list.

ms.aineecbeland

Back to Orange Pekoe haven were I so inclined there is haven. For iced teas brews for sure.

This Green tea is best for daily consumption. It is easily drinkable.

Suggested serving after steeping for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes is to serve with sugar, milk or lemon. I prefer mine plainly brewed and piping hot. It is remedy for all that ails.

This is a daily drink when not trying one more expensive like the Matcha Japanese Green tea.

ms.aineecbeland

Today, I am made myself a small cup of the Matcha Japanese Green; can’t tell you how nice to have the real stuff; and this is a slurping, mouth watering and lip smacking drink. One day away from it and I was salivating. Oh, but it is such a small can.

ms.aineecbeland

Out of Matcha, so I am back to plainly Green store brand tea. It is a choice-liken daily drink. Less than pennies to a cup. Well again the math is wrong.

My time on Steepster.com may be coming to an end since I cannot fight the grimness in living, I am on the losing end of things and this is no forum/decorum.

ms.aineecbeland

I have been having daily brew of Green tea. I am grateful for a cup of green tea; to be able to brew one’s own cup of tea is very good.

Grateful is I.

A well blended robust, deep, rich flavor which is ideal for my busy morning of doing house chores. I would sip and clean; and return to sip some more. I am thinking this London Cuppa is sort of like English Breakfast tea is what comes to mind.

Freshness is maintained as claimed once packed.

Enjoying my Cuppa along with my daily green drink; in that I alternate between the two teas. I drink the Cuppa and think of English Breakfast or Earl Grey even; but I could be mistaken. Tasting buds not as prime as professional tasters.

I like the Cuppa that is all.

Makes for a nice cup of froth green tea. A very potent brew. There is something about opening the tin and tearing at the foil and once open to smell the pure milkyness of the green powder and to just savor the creamy texture, milky dew of it is so very wonderful. A bliss of sort, elixir elation.

It is like taking all of your green veggies and placing them in a blender and whipping them up, then pour in your glass for a full morning breakfast.

Matchaly strong tea drinker, I am.

Skimping on Matcha since it is nearly done; the container was very small; need a bit more next time. Even if I don’t drink it, just nice to open the tin and inhale the milkiness of the flavor.

One of my favorite teas to brew. This is a specialty tea, Green tea bagged. It is mild and tasty; a delightful cup of Green tea and one can’t help but to think of health benefits found in Green teas.

This tea soothes the stomach and relaxes the mind and should be name ‘tranquil tea’ with a hint of camomile added to it.

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
