302 Tasting Notes
Strong zabaione and fruity aroma from the bag.
Dessert like, warming aroma after steeping, the tea smells definitely more like zabaione than like the candied pineapple or flower petals, but the overall impression is really nice.
And the taste fortunately is not overly sweet, slightly astringent.
Decent dessert tea, but not the one to repeat.
Lovely fruity biscuit aroma from the bag.
Very sweet, fruity, warming aroma after sweeping, with a great combination of raspberries, lemon peel and sunflower petals. Slightly astringent.
It’s not a spectacular tea but it’s not supposed to be.
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Lemon Zest, Raspberry
Dry leaves smell with spices, fruit and honey. A bit unusual for a black tea but really charming.
Very warming aroma after steeping, with honey, a bit of nuts, sweet bread and spices. Very complex and attractive. Malty and caramelly flavour, very slight sweetness, no astringency.
Really exquisite tea. I certainly didn’t expect that much.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Caramel, Fruity, Honey, Malt, Nuts, Spicy
Wonderful aroma from the bag. Dried apples, cinnamon, freshly baked apple pie.
And after brewing? More subdued, mellow. Stewed apples, cinnamon, general warming sensation.
A lot of cinnamon in taste, more than of apples. Plus the tea is more on the dry than on the sweet side – I really like that.
Very nice and warming, but not oversweetened brew. I like it. A lot.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Stewed Fruits
Looks really nice before brewing – a lot of dried blackberries, lemongrass, pieces of lemon peel. Smells very perfume-y, with artificial honey flavouring in the foreground and citruses in the back.
After brewing it’s still a bit artificial, but much more mellow. Citruses, flowers, honey, berries create a very warming sensation, perfect on a grey and rainy day.
And the taste is mainly lemongrass, lemon peel, flowers, honey and berries, slightly acidic, a bit perfume-y, at the same time warming and refreshing.
Not a bad tea, but would be better with more natural honey flavouring.
Flavors: Berries, Blackberry, Citrus Zest, Citrusy, Flowers, Honey, Lemongrass, Perfume
Another very old favourite I’m having after many years.
Cream and whiskey aroma, as can be expected. And for an artificial flauvoring it seems pretty natural, warming and pleasant.
Full, malty body slight sweetness.
Not bad for a big company bagged tea.
Flavors: Cream, Irish Cream, Whiskey
Rooibos definitely in the front, but berries compliment in it very nicely, they stay in the back, do not dominate, contribute to the overall impression.
Slightly sweet, slightly sour taste.
Nice warming tea, craftily connecting rooibos with unusual additives.
Flavors: Berries, Blackberry, Raspberry, Sour, Sweet
Really nice colour with the reddish hue.
And very refreshing aroma with pomegranate and lime in equal amounts plus a bit of yerba mate in the background.
Flavour is fruity, a bit sour, not sweet.
Tasty mate-based tea, really refreshing and invigorating. Not exactly my style, but I can appreciate it.
Flavors: Citrus, Lime
Not very strong aroma. A bit herbal, a bit citrusy, with tangerine peel in the background. The bouquet is not very expressive, but it is soothing and relaxing in a way.
And the flavour is way better. Citrusy, slightly sweet, with the tangerine peel tang.
I’m not a big fan of lemon balm, but here it fits.
Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Zest, Lemon, Tangy
