Thank you Izzy for tea bag to sample.
I took this, becasuse it should include green tea and I need something to wake up.

Weirdly I used boiling water (it was even recommended) and results are cloudy, somehow yellow brew with lots of dust.

I can’t smell cinnamon at all. Not even in taste. Ginger, black pepper and Fennel. Where is green tea? Some base is missing. It tastes like brew just from spices. At least it is warming up a bit. But taste is bleh.

Flavors: Fennel, Ginger, Spices

I’m wondering if maybe I did something wrong with this tea. It just doesn’t taste good at all. Yet this blend won a Great Taste Award in 2013, with judges saying:

“Lovely delicate liquor. Happy marriage of delicate flavours. Gentle and well blended. An apple note coming through, along with really well-managed flavours.”

I didn’t get any of that at all, it’s very bland and generic. I brewed as recommended and there was no flavour to this tea other than a hint of herb. The black pepper stung my tongue and the ginger actually made my eyes water. There’s no way I’m going to brew this for longer next time – even if the cinnamon, cloves and green tea are finally detectable, I think the pepper and ginger will kill me.

I’m disappointed :( I’ve now reviewed 2 out of the 4 teas from this company. The first was meh, this one was bleh. Really hoping the last 2 will save the day.

My scoring system for teas includes the quality of the ingredients, as it’s important to me that I’m drinking something real, organic or healthy, not artificial. That plus the dry aroma (which was actually alright) and my overall score has been bumped to about 50. The flavour score column is 1/10 though. If there was no flavour at all or it physically made me ill, I’d be giving it 0 for flavour.

I’ll finish the last of these tea bags with an unhealthy dose of honey, or maybe have a go at making a masala chai with them.

If you don´t know what to do with it, you always can send them to me.
As for me of tea bag (the outer wrapping) collector, I bet I can find a solution for them :)

Izzy

That’s interesting, do the wrappings have to be in perfect condition for you to collect them? I’ve been hoarding mine, but the tops are ripped where I’ve taken out the tea bags. I can send you 2 tea bags (sealed in individual wrappers) for each of the flavours: Orange & Fennel Bliss, Cinnamon & Ginger Spice, Saffron & Cardamom Delight, Ginger & Lemon Zest. If you are interested :)

Martin Bednář

Izzy – they look better when they are perfect :) and certainly better for swaps :)
I made few years back an article how to open the foil bags, you can follow it every time and then send me an evelope full of empty tea bags.

https://colnect.com/cs/collectors/wiki/title=How_to_open_a_tea_bag

I will write you an e-mail (because messages are hit or miss here) later today or tomorrow.

Izzy

Awesome, thank you

Roswell Strange

Huh, that’s interesting @Martin and good to know! I’ve got a couple teas here that come in tea bags AND a box cutter just lying around – I’ll try following your guide and see if I can stockpile some tea bags to send you! I’d much rather send them to someone else than toss them out ^^

Martin Bednář

Roswell Strange – thank you. I have it in my bio, but apparently many people are still surprised how to open those foil wrappers. I guess I will try to update my bio with that article.
