1088 tasting notes

I have had this tea from foil tea bag. It must be quite old, as it was from huge bags section, but we will see.

Dry aroma was saying that this tea is apparently flavoured, but I could not find any flavours listed. (I found out later, that I am blind and I haven’t saw “Vanilla Grenadine Tea” on backside).

But I put that bag in mug, used boiling water and waited 3-4 minutes. Then I took the bag out. It was somehow aromatic, but I could not found out, what exactly it is. Vanilla? Yeah, some sweet notes, but not vanilla like I think.

After few minutes I took first sip. It was very similar to aroma, with one differencce. The base tea was quite strong and noticeable. When it cools down, the taste profile became more clear and I clearly noticed a pineapple flavour and bit like pomergranate, no vanilla. It wasn’t that overpowered as it could be (and sometimes even is), so I have liked it.

Moreover, this tea is apparently full of caffeine.

Flavors: Grenadine, Pineapple

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Ah…in my early tea drinking days, before I realized how long it would take to go through it, I ordered a pound of the same Monk’s Blend! Haven’t had any in a while, but it sounds tasty today.

It was certainly nice to drink. The tea base was nicely present and the flavouring was just okay. I usually have troubles with both, base too weak or too much flavouring. This was alright in both.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
