drank Thyme by tess tea
1174 tasting notes

Another tea from postcrossing I believe. Or it was a swap, who knows?

I was quite happy to see another Tess tea, as last one I had (Goldberry) was quite okay. But, unfortunately, I think this one is even bit worse. The tea is really watery and lemon peel in is overpowering other notes. In aroma of dry bag it was nice, full of thyme tea – but when brewed it seems like all thyme disappeared and instead there is a lemon. Lemon juice in black tea. I am getting so little of thyme so I think it is just black tea maltiness instead.

Not recommended for thyme tea. As for lemon flavoured black tea it is something to go.

Any ideas where to get decent black tea with thyme?

Add some homegrown to black tea?

I will try it that way. But winter have to be over at first, so I won’t grab all the thyme we have now.

I just had a tea a couple days ago – Fauchon’s Peach and Thyme. It’s so old though, I have no idea if they still make it.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

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 :)
