Leaves: tea bag

Measuring Spoon: no

Steep: 5m

Aroma: Citrus

Color: reddish brown

Clarity: slightly cloudy

Taste:Wow, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I picked up this individual tea packet at my local British shop (I live in the US). I never tried a Taylors Of Harrogate Tea, so i thought why not at only $.50. Opening the foil packet I noticed the tea bag is quite large, bigger than your typical bag. The aroma of the steeped cup was citrus accompanied by a reddish brown hue.I let the cup go for 5 minutes as for the taste it was very bitter difficult to drink with out making a face. To see if this cup could be helped I added a packet honey pearls. It helped to greatly reduce the amount of bitterness without altering the flavor profile but not add much sweetness.Overall I didn’t enjoy this tea which also left a dry mouth feel once I finished my cup.

*update: I took the same used tea bag a steeped it in about 2 cups of water & it was much better than the first cup & very light in flavor with no bitterness.

I really got into tea early(2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

I’m apart of Teavivre Free tasting activity,I joined after making my first purchase with them.
Thank you Angel & Teavivre
