130 Tasting Notes

I bought this tea awhile back and just finished it. It had very faint flavoring from the beginning, more of a plain green than a flavored green. It needs more ginger and some more mint.

Flavors: Green Wood

Twinings! How could you do this to an oolong? This is absolutely THE WORST oolong I have ever tasted. Overwhelming flavors of dirt.

Really disappointing. A chalky, earthy flavor that I really don’t like. I think this tea will be thrown away. : (

Solid, good Earl Grey. Nothing fancy but very dependable. I am always happy to see these at hotels that have a selection of tea bag teas.

Flavors: Bergamot, Tea

The aroma for the teabag and the steeping aroma is heavenly! I just wish it had a stronger pomegranate flavor. I am going to look for this in a bulk loose leaf to try that; I have just one sampler tea bag right.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Pomegranate

Really like this tea! It’s not showy, but it is what I expect from Earl Grey. Perhaps a bit more bergamot? I am drinking this every morning now, competing with my husband.

drank Headache Halo by DAVIDsTEA

This tea has willow bark in it, which according to WebMD (and many other sources) contains the chemical Salicin. Salicin is similar to aspirin. That being said, it really has no flavor except mint. It has nana mint in it, which apparently has medicinal properties too. I really just can’t get into this tea because of its lack of flavor and aroma! It also leaves an odd taste or sensation on my tongue; could it be the Salicin? I’m generally not sensitive to aspirin, but then, I also don’t take very much. AT LEAST IT DOESN’T HAVE STEVIA IN IT! Wouldn’t drink this again.

Flavors: Alkaline, Mint

drank Nutcracker by Wisteria Tea Room

We bought this tea after having afternoon tea at the Wisteria Tea Room in Fort Myers, FL. This was a selection by my husband. I have been clearing out old teas or questionable teas to make way for new ones I want to try. This one was still hanging around, so I made a cup this morning. Honestly, I did not entirely care for the aroma which was rooibos. The first tasting note I experienced was alcohol, and then an artificial taste. The tea has “natural flavors” so that has to be it. I am keeping it for my husband to retry when he gets home….

Flavors: Alcohol, Artificial, Rooibos
