36 Tasting Notes
I made a huge mug of this to drink while doing my writing project at work today. I got one of the big pieces of citrus, so this cup was particularly on the citrus-heavy side, which was just fine.
Later, when I wanted cold water, I poured it right into the same mug to mix a bit with the tea that was leftover and has some yummy water to drink as well.
Almost ridiculously sweet, I can’t say I loved this cup. Did I like it? Debatable. It was drinkable, and I drank it, so that has to mean something, yes?
At one point, I found myself thinking ‘It tastes like juice warmed up.’ Which, pro or con, I’m not entirely sure.
I got a sample of this, hoping to find a cheaper alternative to Teavana’s Earl Grey Creme. It’s def. not a replacement, but it does stand on its own as a great morning tea.
There isn’t the same level of creaminess I get from Teavana’s Earl Grey Creme, but (and I’m totally guessing here) there does seem to be a smoother bergamont flavor (I’m assuming that what I’m tasting is the bergamont anyway. Still learning!) than straight Earl Grey’s – which I like.
So, not a substitute (still looking, might just have to cave to The Man), but a tea worth drinking of its own accord!
I really enjoyed this blend. When I went to the shop, I knew they had loose Twinings tea and was hoping to find Lady Grey – but that was sold out. So, on a whim, I snatched up Prince of Wales because it was on the lighter side. (I’m still easing my way into strong black teas.)
I found this to be so yummy! I added a bit of rock sugar to sweeten things up a bit and really, really enjoyed this. I could see drinking this one on a very regular basis.
I made a super weak brew of this tea last night because I wanted to get a taste for it before I made a stronger version of it. I really, really liked it. A great note of grapes and sweetness that really tasted delicious in the cold of night! I can’t wait to try a strong version of this.
