6 Tasting Notes
I don’t have too much experience in instant teas, but this one is really tasty. I’ts a nice combo and you can taste all of the flavours. Maybe I’ll try some other instants of Whittard. Their range seems tempting.
Flavors: Apricot, Honey, Vanilla
I know it’s not a high quality tea but I’ve got less than I expected. I liked the sweet scent of it but thats the only positive aspect can be mentioned. I found it rather poor with an odd character. I would not offer this to my friends thats for sure :)
Generally I like flavored green teas but I’ve got a problem with orange peel in green tea (or at least in this one) but it’s just a matter of taste and to others it might seem hair-splitting. If I steep the tea a bit longer then the orange peel will dominate the tea (for my taste) but if I steep it for a shorter period of time then it’s going to be too mild. Maybe experimenting with the amount of tea will solve the problem. Still, not a bad choice, I can enjoy the mild infusion in the evenings.
(p.s.: I used loose leaf not the bagged ones)
I got this tea from my friend and had doubts about it because mint is not one of my favourites (therefore I’ve never drunk mint tea before so i cannot compare). Unexpectedly I really enjoyed it. Quite refreshing and fine taste but still would not buy it by myself. Glad that i own it, though :)
I really like this one, it’s very delectable especially if “oversteeped” a little. The time recommendation about steeping that the packaging says is not enough for all of the flavors to be released. It’s a simple but lovely fruit infusion.
