I’ve yet to try an English Breakfast blend that I did not like, and this was no exception. Very hearty, smooth, silky…altogether a very enjoyable cuppa black tea.

I don’t know precisely what I’m tasting, but this particular tea reminds me of going to the grocery store while sick and grabbing some kind of medicinal something that promises to make you feel better, and it kind of does but also it’s a little gross and then the box is relegated to the back of the cupboard until you get sick again or toss it?

Again big bags tea bag. It is from their “A gift from London” series.

This tea held its qualites great. It was like brand new, full-bodied tea. I am pretty much impressed. And it wasn’t bad at all, flavourful and bold, quite tannic, quite malty. Decent English Breakfast bag, athough drank in the afternoon.

Nice caffeine boost as well, and very welcomed today.

Flavors: Malt, Tannic

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Samurai TTB #2

Didn’t love this one nearly as much as the Apple Refresh. The lemon lime flavor is very light and somewhat sour. Adding honey made it a more pleasant experience, but I don’t think it’s something I’d drink again.

Flavors: Citrus, Lemon, Lime, Sour

Samurai TTB #1

It feels like Christmas came early with this huge box of teas to try! I didn’t have time to go through the TTB properly yesterday, so I just grabbed a handful of teabags to take to the office with me. This was the first one I tried. The name is very appropriate; this is a refreshing, lightly flavored black tea that tastes like a whole Granny Smith apple. No caramel or cinnamon, just lots of appley goodness on a nice smooth base.

Flavors: Green Apple, Smooth

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Another cuppa with tea from Izzy. Thank you.

And this tea is for our hibi lover Mastress Alita. Well, seeing hibiscus already in name is, well — not something I look into.

The bag was smeling quite of artificial fruits. But as well quite good. It wasn’t really off. After 5 minutes of steeping (recommended) I get deep red drink.

The aroma is quite nice and berry-like. The taste is though quite watery, tart and completely weird fruityness. You just can’t pick a simple berry from it. Maybe blueberry is most prominent. And hibi tartness isn’t great for my mood right now as well. But it’s in the name, so I expected it.

In conclusion, according to the name, it’s exactly that. It’s fruity, unfortunately it’s in mixed bag, so it’s some generic fruity. And tart… hibiscus is taking its part as well. Not bad actually, but not my cup of tea.

Flavors: Berry, Blueberry, Fruity, Tart

One day I’ll just have to start up the Alita Happy Hibiscus Rescue Home.

I don’t mind hibi, but here… it was just too much maybe? Or just the combo didn’t suit me well? I don’t know…

tea-sipper

haha, I can imagine you would acquire so much free hibiscus tea, Mastress Alita!

I’d have to create a dedicate drawer for them all!

Three entries of same tea. I decided to use this one.

Huge bags section after loooong time. A tea bag. A tea that old, that Ahmad doesn’t offer it anymore in the Czech Republic.

The bag was in foil wrapping, so I have hoped it will be still quite fresh. It wasn’t much overpowering when I have opened that outer wrapping, but it’s black tea blend! I took a sniff on the bag and noticed citruses. Not sure if bergamot, it was rather lemony for me, but again it’s old!

I went for two and something minutes steep and mug was filled with dark brown (read: mahagony) liquid.

Aroma of Chinese teas mostly — think Keemun chocolate note, with hints of citrusy. Probably bergamot as they say.

Taste is very mellow (I bit blame the age, to be honest), again Keemun taking most part, smooth, and hints of citruses. Again the bergamot I suppose. Backbone of malty notes.

Whoa, I haven’t expected such a great flavour for that old tea. Just be careful with steeping time I guess.

Flavors: Cacao, Citrusy, Lemon Zest, Malt

Hey Martin-Take it from an old tea bag here-we are full of surprises! LOL!

Bought as part of the Ahmad herbal assortment. Delicious blend, heavy on the chamomile with just a suggestion of something else. Perfect before bed. Love it. Can’t wait to try the other flavors.

This one surely took its time in my cupboard…
Very faint aroma, malty, the flowery and blossom notes are almost nonexistent.
Solid malty and earthy base black tea with slight astringency plus marigold and orange blossom flavouring in the background.
Not bad. Surely not as overdone as the majority of Xmas teas.

Flavors: Astringent, Earth, Flowers, Malt, Orange Blossom

drank Barooti Assam by Ahmad Tea

This is a smooth cup of black tea for morning. There are no harsh notes but it also does not have a lot of flavor. I would say it is moderate for most Assams I have had, and moderate for most black teas.

Flavors: Malt

Has a broth-y mouthfeel to it. This one is heavy on the fennel and ginger, with the peppermint giving it a little bit of a green, cooling edge in the aftertaste. I do wish I were getting more of the dandelion and rosemary.

It’s medicinal, but not unpleasantly so. It reminds me of tulsi, but not in terms of how it tastes— in terms of what the experience of drinking it feels like. Is that weird? It just FEELS like it’s good stuff.

Did not have high hopes for this one. Another boring plain Ceylon? Thanks, Sips By…
But this is actually really nice! It’s flavorful and hearty, but doesn’t have the icky astringency that Ceylon teas usually have. And I’m getting a note of… ginger? Whatever it is, I’m liking it a lot.

Samurai Travelling Tea Box – Tea #5

When Shae asked me if there were any teas in her cupboard that I wanted to try, I must have really been craving apple teas because I ended up asking for A LOT of apple blends; apple cinnamon and apple ginger in particular…

I’m glad she added this one in though – it’s a tea bag and without having the chance to sample in this type of format, it’s a tea that I would have likely passed up/ignored. However, I thought the flavour was really nice this afternoon and of the five teas I’ve tried from the box so far it was actually my favourite!

Simple in execution – this is basically a medium to full bodied and slightly astringent black tea coupled with a consistent sweet green apple flavour and a hint of something floral to the undertone. It’s rare to get a green apple tea without any tartness/sourness, but that’s what this tastes like to me and I really appreciated it!

Smells like pinesol tastes like limeaid. Don’t really taste the black tea, but I know it’s there as I see the bag expand in size. At least its not bitter, and I think this would actually be a good candidate for grampa style brewing. Maybe throw in a bag of ginger(which typically disappoints as a solo cup). I am always looking for bags that taste good as they travel much easier than loose leaf, but I’m not sure I’d purchase this again. I’ll experiment with iced tea, but as hot tea the lime taste seems decent up front, then lingers into meh as a chemical afterthought. A small dollop of honey makes it a little less aftertasty and more limey.
It’s nice that there’s a best before date on the box as I’m not sure I’ll be drinking this all that fast.

Flavors: Lemon, Lime
