Recent Tasting Notes
This has a nice strong orange flavor with some spices. I drank it sweetened without milk. It tastes nice, though not super special or anything. I’ve been drinking a lot of teas with this flavor profile lately, and this one wasn’t very memorable. It gets terrible reviews, which it doesn’t deserve. Thanks tea-and-cats!
Thanks to tea-and cats for this tea! I’m enjoying it more than many other pumpkin spice blends. I taste something pumpkin-like, and I also taste some mild spices. I would have liked a bit more power from the spices, but it was still enjoyable sweetened with milk. I put it in the fridge overnight, and today, it’s really a pretty great cup of tea. I get some fruitiness from the pumpkin and warmth from the spices. I don’t taste much black tea, but this one isn’t lacking any depth, so that must be where the black tea is coming in. I would drink this again.
I get a nice orangey flavor here. I don’t necessarily taste the black tea. The flavoring isn’t tangy, sour, or fake. It’s well-balanced and pleasant warm with some sugar. I didn’t taste cranberry specifically, which was fine. Thanks tea-and-cats! I don’t think this was special enough to have again, but it was nice.
I wanted to follow up the theme of chocolate teas today with this tea from getanzt
After 8 minutes of steeping, this smelled like strawberry candy and tasted like a delicate strawberry hot cocoa. I added a little but of milk to make it creamier, but it ended up drowning out the flavors, so I don’t recommend doing that!
Overall, I wish the flavor was stronger, but what is there is tasty!
I’m currently in possession of the latest Reddit TTB, which is always fun. This is the first tea that I decided to try, and it’s quite nice! It’s the loose leaf version, and it’s pretty high quality. I taste a pleasant malty flavor. It goes well with milk and sugar. It could be a little stronger/heartier, but it’s been a good way to start my day!
steep 5 minutes boiling water
color translucent dark orange brown
hint earthy (coconut) in aftertaste if you look for it
Added cream and sugar, now it tastes like sweet milk
meh, not a fan
this was a free sample
additional notes: Having this one again a month later and raising the rating from 74. I’m surprised I only gave it a rating of 74 a month ago, as there are some real clunkers of bergamot blends out there and this is NOT one of them. This IS a solid Earl – just as long as I use two teabags in a big mug. The flavor is quite good. I really like it. This could be a go-to tea for me, if I’m looking for STRONG, BRISK, TASTY BERGAMOT. It seems like a tea I’d drink at a lighthouse or something… Or great on a sunny yet brisk and windy day (as today is). As whoa, this tea is also brisk yet sunny. It’s a real energy booster and brightener.
Tiffany :) sent me a TON of these teabags! THANK YOU! Luckily I like them! I will be doubling up on them though. Eyeing the CTC leaf, it looks like half a teaspoon in each teabag. It might have been a LITTLE strong, but note to self, use a big mug if you steep two. But I love when an Earl is brisk. The bergamot itself isn’t my absolute favorite, that’s tough to match, but it isn’t bad bergamot at all. Also strong! Well, this IS named “Earl GreyER”. I’m glad I like it… I will have plenty around when I want a solid Earl.
Steep #1 // 2 teabags for big mug // 23 minutes after boiling // 1 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 3 min after boiling // 3min
Flavors: Bergamot, Brisk
Decided to immerse myself in all things Eire today: shamrock green sweater, Irish Whiskey Tea (Teamaze) for breakfast, rereading an installment from “An Irish Country Doctor” series, listening to The Irish Rovers, and this for my work break because, well, green.
I don’t have a lot of matcha experience so this may just be ignorance talking, but it was a little too high on the bitter and vegetal scale for my preferences. I’m lily-livered and want my green teas gentle, sweet-ish, or flavored. No harm done, horizons expanded, and with that, I’ll leave you with this little Irish blessing I found: If God sends you down a stony path, may He give you strong shoes.
One of my favorite teas to drink iced in the summer. Super refreshing. Light on the ginger and heavy on the peach and tea flavor. It’s decaf, so it’s a little flat tasting compared to non decaf black tea, but it’s perfect for this blend.
Flavors: Peach, Stonefruit, Tea
I don’t really care for red rooibos but I’ve seen some people mentioning they have a strong preference for either red or green so I thought I’d give this a try when I found a tin at the grocery store. I think it’s quite a bit tastier than red rooibos but I’m not in love with it. It’s just a big cup of meh. There are other caffeine-free options I enjoy a lot more. Maybe it would be better for me in a blend instead of straight rooibos? Or maybe I’m just not a rooibos person.
This blend is gorgeous. I love jasmine—the fragrance, the flavour, all the things. And while I like it with just about any tea, I think it works best as a white tea blend. (Oolong might be nice, too? I haven’t tried it.) This one’s super simple and straightforward, and utterly lovely.
