9 Tasting Notes
the black tea taste is strong because I steeped for longer than recommended. It is a very pleasant tea. The pomegranate comes through well, which you can taste just as you finish your drink. the aftertaste isn’t bitter, and honestly, I find helps each continued drink taste better. I like it unsweetened, there’s no bitterness at all. I imagine it would only enhance the natural sweetness of the pomegranate, but might become overwhelming.
The first time I tried this tea it was delicious. This time though, I think it’s too old. It was a canister that belonged to my roommate, and it just seems like the taste has faded away. I only taste a bit of mint in the aftertaste.
Just a fresh strong peppermint tea. Steeped for 10 minutes- 2 minutes over the recommended 8 minutes, because it has been in my cupboard for about 8 months. Was still fresh and rich tasting, and was excellent on it’s own, as well as sweetened with a hint of splenda.
Flavors: Mint, Peppermint
I tried Lavender tea yesterday. It was not my thing. I found it kind of bitter tasting, and had to sweeten it. I loved the smell though, and sipped away at the cup over a couple hours while knitting. It was very relaxing. I actually found the taste improved once the tea had cooled to slightly warmer than room temperature.
Recommended of only because of how excellent it smells. Might just steep a cup and set it on the counter during bath time because of the relaxing smell.
Flavors: Bitter, Fruity, Lavender
Bought this at the Bulk Barn because the smell is very enticing. The taste on the other hand is pretty bland. It tastes mainly of black tea, and a little sweet because of the stevia. I ended up adding two teaspoons of splenda to finish this cup of tea.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Sweet, Tea
