81 Tasting Notes
I thought I would like this tea more than I did. I’ve enjoyed (and still enjoy) a lot of black teas with maple flavouring, but this feels a little too sweet and too creamy, and slightly artificial? The blend looks lovely, and it’s totally drinkable, but not my favourite.
Flavors: Cream, Maple Syrup, Tannin, Vanilla
really, really love this tea!!! it’s so beautiful. i’d never tried a black tea with rice before (i’ve had a few green teas with rice) but this was just beautiful. it looks lovely when steeped. it’s very sweet and very aromatic (filled with berries!) and a pleasure to drink. i’m sad i only bought 50 grams. <3
Flavors: Blueberry, Brown Sugar, Caramel, Maple, Nutty, Rice, Tannin, Vanilla
One of my favourite breakfast teas of all time. It just doesn’t compare! So malty, warm, full of tannins but never bitter, even if I over steep it. So, so beloved. The leaves even have this beautiful brown/green moment when steeped. I enjoy it so much.
Flavors: Caramel, Malt, Smoke, Tannin, Tobacco, Vanilla, Wood
I like this one, but I don’t know when to drink it. I love black and green tea together usually, but this is sort of … mossy and smoky and black tea. It’s a finely made tea, but I’m not sure if it’s for me, or if I would buy it again.
Flavors: Grassy, Green, Malt, Tannin, Vegetal
I bought this tea for my mother-in-law, whose tea of choice is Blackcurrant black tea from Twining’s. It worked well enough, but wasn’t as fine as Twining’s tea. It was a little overly sweet and you could separately taste the tea and then the flavouring. Not the best, but it works in a pinch.
(Also so bizarre that I forget about this random website and then recall it once every two or three years lmao.)
Flavors: Black Currant, Floral, Sweet
