Tangerine note is subtle in aroma, stronger in taste. And it’s the peel, of course, not the fruit flavour. Plus decent base black tea underneath. Not bad but also not great, just a regular corporate tea with decent fruitiness.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Tangerine

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Creme Earl Grey by Good Earth

Coconut and creme flavouring give a really interesting twist to an otherwise classic Earl Grey tea. They give it richness and depth, but are subtle and don’t conceal the basic bergamot and cornflower character. Tasty and drinkable.

Flavors: Bergamot, Coconut, Cream, Earl Grey, Flowers

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 g 10 OZ / 300 ML

What can I say here? It’s just a casual tea from a big company, nothi9ng spectacular, but not bas for “sipping while working”. A bit malty, with decent depth.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 g 10 OZ / 300 ML

drank Lychee by Dilmah

Lots of lychee that feels rather natural despite being just a flavouring (probably due to perfume -y specific of the fruit). Malty and slightly astringent base black tea, a touch of sweetness impression. Not bad.

Flavors: Astringent, Lychee, Malty

Casual Earl Grey tea with only a trace of bergamot. Not bad for a cheap tea in a hotel, but nothing much.

Complex fruit flavour with slight sourness and a bit of tartness. Great black currant undertones in the background and aftertaste. Not bad for a cheap hotel tea.

Bio

I drink tea almost all the time.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
