11 Tasting Notes
This is a great quality tea and looks beautiful. The leaves are rolled up into tight little balls, and unfurl to deliver a liquor of good strength and freshness. I personally don’t like to let it steep for too long or it becomes a tad bitter. The people in the Taylors shops are always so lovely too!
I used to drink this infusion a lot, but after drinking more loose leaf, this one tastes less fresh in comparison. It also tastes slightly artificial… I wonder whether the added flavourings were natural. Having said that, in order to get any flavour into a fruit tea in a tea bag variety, I guess you have to add extra flavourings. I prefer my drinks to be a bit more natural tasting, but then again I have lots of friends who don’t drink infusions that much but like this one because of the stronger taste and deep red colour. I like Twinings tea a lot, but I’ll gladly give this one to my friends.
Am I missing something here? PG Tips scores so well amongst you lot and I can’t stand the stuff. In fact, I bought some Yorkshire, Hampstead and Teapigs for friends that still have this rubbish in their cupboards. I hope they have now seen the light.
Completely agree. I can’t see why it is so popular on here. I actually find it makes a bit of a change sometimes because it tastes different to the other standard teas, but I certainly wouldn’t buy any of it, it’s much more bitter than anything else, and it’s so hard to brew because in those pyramid bags, it brews in only a couple of seconds.
I haven’t had any Hampstead tea, but I like Teapigs and Yorkshire – must look up Hampstead and see what I’m missing…
Well I like their Ginger Green in the morning. A bit of zing and a detox. The ginger tastes very fresh, unlike a Twinings version which was just a bag of chemical flavours…
More delicate than the Yorkshire tea variety, but still with plenty of kick. I don’t like to leave it to brew too long, or it becomes a tad bitter for me. Needs a good dash of milk. This is my hang over / afternoon pep up tea.
