I am enjoying a cup of this tea now. I’ve had these teadrops a couple of times now, and overall, they’re pretty good. I also want to say that I love the company. They are very nice. That is always a big plus in my book.
The aroma is amazing. I love the smell of cardamom, and I have to say that Teadrops did the cardamom well. There’s a delicious, spicy flavor to it, but there isn’t too much cardamom to this. I can even taste that hint of citrus to the cardamom. Nice.
The tea itself is a satisfying black tea. It has a good flavor to it. It doesn’t taste like a dust/fannings sort of nasty tea that you’d find in the supermarket. It tastes like a good quality tea that has been turned into a teadrop.
I do have a couple of issues (as I point out in my full-length review of this tea, you can check that out here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/01/24/product-review-cardamom-spice-teadrops/ ) :
1. I’m not crazy about the fact that it’s pre-sweetened. I like to decide if I want sweetener or not. Typically with a spiced tea like this one, I would add a little bit of raw sugar to it because I think that the spices need a little bit of sugar to really pop. But I guess I like to decide how much sugar goes into the cup and not have that decided for me.
2. There is some undissolved sediment at the bottom of the cup when you get there. I resolve this by stopping when I’m down to the last 1/2 inch of tea at the bottom. I don’t get any sediment in the sip before that point, and so, the tea above the approximate 1/2 inch to the bottom is good stuff.
It’s pretty good, and goes nicely with breakfast. Yes … I’m having breakfast now. I just woke up a couple of hours ago. I find that if I stay up late, then I sleep through morning. And since I’m not a morning person … this works well for me.
