3 Tasting Notes
It is a good tea with mint but it isn’t a standout. It reminds me of Moroccan mint blends that include peppermint in them, like the one that Dilmah has. I can taste the stronger flavors of the black tea but mostly as an aftertaste. If you’re looking for a little higher caffeine level on a tea blended with mint, this is probably your brew.
Flavors: Astringent, Mint
I’m used to Earl Grey Teas having a black tea base but I’ve tried an Earl Grey green tea before but I did not like it very much. The bergamot scent was too strong and overpowering. The Earl Grey Buddha is light and refreshing though. It is grassier in flavor and a lighter alternative to the usual Earl Grey. I’m more of a green and white tea drinker now and it’s a delight to know there’s a Earl Grey green tea blend that’s not too overpowering. You can enjoy the lightness of green tea and the scent of bergamot at the same time.
Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot
I’m not a fan of mixing tea and chocolate but this blend does it well. It’s a great pick-me-up in the morning and the chocolate does not overpower the black tea. I enjoy the flavor of the mix of the malt and the chocolate flavors.
Flavors: Astringent, Chocolate, Malt, Sweet
