Received one tea bag from Postcrossing again. It is nice to receive different tea bags and more over, they are sometimes new for my collection. Not this one, but Dilmah – IMO quite good brand for Ceylon teas, especially for tea bags.

I even heard a interview with founder of this brand:

I hope it will work and I hope it is not geoblocked. Otherwise, you have to use VPN to Czech Republic. The interview is very nice and enjoyable with cup of Ceylon tea.

Ah, why I am studying logistics and not marketing. Hihi.

Okay, the tea:
The tea brews really dark, cloudy black colour with aromas of bergamot peel and citruses. I steeped it for “minimal time”, as said, so, it was only 3 minutes. It turned out perfect. Tea base was mild, but noticable; full of flavour. On the other hand the bergamot part of this tea was highly aromatic, but in taste it was well pronouced and together it worked very well. Nothing was too strong and I think longer steeping time would make it worse and it would turn bitter.

Refreshing morning tea! I have to rate it unexpectably high, because, for tea bag, oh boy, it is great.

Hey all. Sorry for the extended absence. My mood has been really down lately, and I haven’t bought new tea in awhile, so there hasn’t been anything new to review.

All that being said, when my parents went on vacation, they brought back four teabags. Two of this, and two chamomile from the same brand. Today, I am trying the peppermint.

Ok, For starters, I brewed this a minute more than it said. I like a good strong herbal, and I thought it might help. However, upon tasting the result, it was hella bitter. So I opted for a single stevia (I’m at the parents house, they don’t have splenda). It made it taste marginally better. It’s certainly minty – which it should be for supposedly containing nothing but peppermint leaf. Yup I can totally tell that is peppermint. It actually, with the stevia, tastes remarkably like one of those red and white peppermint candies that grandma used to horde. I can handle that. I like those.

Overall, I would say this is a decent peppermint tea. Taken straight, it is bitter, but with a touch of sweetener, it has a lovely peppermint candy flavor. Not bad at all.

Flavors: Peppermint

Welcome back! Always good to see old Steepsterites return to action

Glad to see you back! Peppermint tea is very much not my thing, but you’ve made this sound oddly appealing. Probably because I also have a fondness for those silly candies.

drank English Breakfast by Dilmah
71 tasting notes

I found a couple of bags of this and went ahead and brewed some up to have in…a latte! My handheld milk foamer broke a couple weeks ago so now I have a manual one which I’m loving. I can warm the milk directly on the stove and pump it a couple of time and have really great foam. Regular milk just won’t do. Anyway, added my milk and sugar and was pretty happy with it. Just a slightly malty black tea that’s pretty nice. I’m guessing it will make a pretty good iced black tea as well. I’m going to enjoy the couple of bags I have of this.

Fruity, sweetish aroma.
Taste dominated by lychee, with peach more in the background, but the fruity notes are balanced with the base black malty tea.
Soothing, warming, not bad.

drank Strawberry by Dilmah

Day 1 of my homemade advent calendar: strawberry teas

I found this tea to taste artificial, but not like chemical/undrinkable strawberry candy artificial. More like the processed strawberry flavour in strawberry flavoured jello/pastries/pie glaze. So…not really artificial but more “not fresh” I guess. The black tea only barely came though. I think my teabag was fairy old and had lost some flavour.

Flavors: Artificial, Fruity, Red Fruits, Strawberry

I drank this with a splash of vanilla soy milk. The black tea is fairly plain, a bit tannic, but the peach flavouring is decent. It is quite flavourful. I got this teabag for free from a breakfast buffet, so I’m not complaining. I knew a bagged flavoured ceylon wouldn’t be amazing. xD It makes for an interesting cup and now I can say I’ve tried it.

Flavors: Fruity, Peach, Tannic

Great tea! I’m not sure if it’s indeed caramel that it tastes like, but it is good nevertheless.

Strongish, good and reassuring. Nothing special mind you, but in the price bracket I think it’s well worth at least trying.

Flavors: Peach, Pear

drank Darjeeling Tea by Dilmah
2 tasting notes

This tea is cheap comparing to Twinnings or Ahmad Tea counterpart, it provide the distinguished flowery and fruity taste of Darjeeling Tea, but you need to avoid oversteep(personally I recommend about 30 second to 1 minutes) and dont use boiling water(I recommend 80 celsius degree). I am looking for Darjeeling second flush tea leaves now.

Flavors: Flowers, Fruity

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 0 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 250 OZ / 7393 ML

drank Mango by Dilmah
1 tasting notes

My sister brought me this tea from one of her adventures. The flavors are really soothing and you can taste the mango flavor in every sip. Dilmah did a good job of capturing the fruity flavor of mangoes but not losing the fact that it’s tea. Perfect for after dinner or afternoon tea time.

drank English Breakfast by Dilmah

I brought back a couple teabags of this from Sri Lanka as they were in my hotel room. (I bought lots of other types of tea too!) This is a good breakfast tea. I can’t say it’s more impressive than my usual choice for breakfast tea, but it was enjoyable and the first sip did take me back to my trip. It didn’t sustain flavor well through the second steeping, but I didn’t really expect it to either.
