I’m cheating a bit since I didn’t actually drink this recently, but I did go through the entire pack of teabags and I have no idea where my last one went. Maybe I drank it and forgot to say, or maybe it’ll turn up one day and then I’ll give it a proper write up. For now I’m just updating my cupboard to say I don’t have this any more. My dad bought me these for Christmas back when I was first getting into tea, and it was probably one of the first of these types of herbals I tried. I remember it being fairly heavy on the lemongrass and pepper, with some sweetness from the liquorice. It would probably be great for me right now getting over this cold…
Average quality for average tea. I was lucky enough to find this reduced from £3.99 to £1.99, but I wouldn’t pay the full price.
Simply put, it’s a black tea with heavy notes of vanilla. Nothing more, nothing less. I have this tea whenever I don’t have anything fancier in my cupboard and need my loose leaf hit. Milk is also nice with this tea, sugar isn’t needed but up to one teaspoon is enough. I usually steep for 3-5 minutes.
I received the EU-TTB back today and I wish to thank everyone that took part in the second round. There will be a third round to be set up in a few months time so keep your eyes open. This tea is my first sample since the box returned.
I’m finally starting to watch Sherlock and I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. It’s like House MD but crime scenes/cases rather than a doctor. The intellect and wit is awesome! I shall be watching the second episode while I sip this. (Ok the start of episode 2 there is a Yixing Teapot….I just giggled like a school girl and clapped my hands).
The bag is nice and clear, I can instantly spot lemongrass. Once steeped flavour is light and sweet citrus with high pepper notes. Rather fragrant with a nice sweet and spicy affair. As it cools I can taste a little licorice in the after taste, makes the lemongrass taste more refreshing, as does the mint though they are subtle.
I liked it but honestly it’s nothing special, I feel bad saying that as the ingredients taste nice and fresh but I suppose I’m trying to say that flavour wise it isn’t memorable.
