14 Tasting Notes
This herbal tea is very unpleasant (both cold and hot) because of the overly sour and citrus-y flavour. This tea tastes and smells very artificial. The color, however, is pretty good-looking (a beautiful, bright red!), but after tasting it I can assure you that this tea is only enjoyable with the eyes as your other senses with not be pleased.
I’m really not sure what I am going to do with the rest of the bag…
Flavors: Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Sour
Having no strainer around, I decided to go for the bagged stuff and drank this “Zen” blend.
Unsurprisingly this is a sad, bland cuppa. It is indeed “zen” as one will not experience any strong reaction to this tea but rather be soothed by the taste of verbena.
I picked up a bag of this green tea at half-price in Fortnum and Mason’s Piccadilly store in London and I would be a little disappointed if I paid full-price: this green tea is very astringent and bitter.The leaves are good quality but I couldn’t find any whole leaf.
Whilst being certainly not a very delicate and complex green, it is better (and cheaper!) than any grocery store bagged tea.
This is a very delicate floral tea that is not very sweet for a David’s Tea tea (Yay!). The cherry flavour is not overwhelming but feels very synthetic as others have noted.
That being said, it’s still a nice tea for a rainy day.
Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Blossom
I am not normally fond of herbal teas, but as I needed a caffeine-free drink and I had a teabag of Ridgways Citrus on the hand, I decided to taste it.
The first thing I noticed is the smell: the incredible scent of fresh lemon. I tasted the freshness of the lemon too when drinking it, though the flavour faded away after a couple of seconds to become a less fresh lemony taste.
I did not expect much from this tea bag but it’s certainly the best Citrus-y infusion I’ve ever tasted. It’s not tea but it’s pretty good.
Flavors: Lemon, Lemongrass
