Another tea bag I have received through postcrossing.
And more over, steepster entry is wrong, but I could not access Harris Teeter website to download a new picture and/or add some information about this tea.
Received just only foil wrapping without any inforamtion, not even steeping parameters. It is just plain purple wrap saying “Harris Teeter Organics – English Breakfast Black Tea”
So, steeping paramters for blacks. 3 and 1/2 minutes, boiling water, 300 ml.
It seems it is dusty tea, not even trying to be quality, dry bag smells after basic cheap black tea. Maybe a little of bergamot or citruses, but that’s all. Moreover, I cut through the bag when opening the foil wrap with box cutter, so some tea “leaves” went out. Luckily not much of them.
Wet bag aroma – at least it is not somehow bad. Otherwise is is common, bit cocoa like + malty. Brew aroma is strongly malt.
In taste it is indeed very malty. As well it is quite drying. Few drops of lemon juice will make it better, but I do not have lemons at home. And I like my teas straight.
Overall, it is average, but tasty tea. Do not expect anything extra from this one.
Flavors: Cocoa, Malt, Tea
This tea…it will be odd at first! It has black pepper, resulting in an odd peppery taste – it may grow on you. The pepper manifests as an aftertaste, blending with the Cardamom, Ginger, and Cinnamon. This tea is cheap….and it tastes decent. I would buy it again and recommend it to anyone wanting something different (it was my first encounter to tea with black pepper in it)
