15 Tasting Notes
I love this tea! It smells great, it tastes great, it warms me up around the holidays! It is a little sweet, which normally I don’t like, but I think is necessary with these flavors. It is reminiscent of mulling spices. I like that it has a bit of caffeine in it too, I always need a little something to keep me going.
I’m not a huge fan of Earl Grey, but that’s because of the overwhelming bergamot that most companies make it with. This doesn’t have any bergamot flavoring or scent, but it is very creamy. It’s almost chemically tasting with the level of creaminess it aims for, and I don’t think it’s very good. The creamy flavor leaves an aftertaste, and because of that I don’t think I’d try this tea again.
Not bad but for lemon flavors I prefer the La La Lemon. The dry tea smells great, but once it is brewed it has a very earthy odor. However, the taste is much better than the smell! The lemon flavor is very delicate, I think the oolong comes through well. It isn’t too sweet, which I like, but is reminiscent of pound cake.
After the first sip I didn’t immediately want to toss this, but after a few more I had to. I wish that the orange flavor came through a bit more and was expecting something fresh tasting, but this tea missed the mark. I do like the hint of white tea coming through, but other than that this tea wasn’t very good. It also has a bad aftertaste.
