100 Tasting Notes

Wow. I didn’t expect this tea to have a fruity flavor, but there is some type of sweetness I can taste….I like it a lot. A mild but full flavored black tea with an intriguing and pleasant taste.

I have a song to dedicate to this tea… or that maybe the tea should dedicate to ME.

“You wanted more… more than I could handle… more than I could offer…”

I thought this was going to be amazing, a smooth, chocolately flavor mixed with tart raspberries, almost like candy in a cup.

But then it turned out to be just somewhat watery, strong on the black tea flavor, light on the chocolate-raspberry, which really just felt more like an accent or an aftertaste.

Now I do enjoy it – having a tea with a raspberry-chocolate aftertaste is lovely. But I would advise you to lower your expectations… expect a black tea, and come out with a fruity-chocolate flavor after your sip.

I tried it hot – will see what it’s like cold.

I could definitely taste the cream and it was such a pleasant and welcome surprise. I will drink this again and again – it may even be hard to go back to regular Earl Grey now that I’ve had it with the lovely cream flavor! Also, I enjoy the bergamot flavor, and this tea did not disappoint.

Tea reminds me of home and family. Black tea with milk and honey was a gift of love growing up.

I’ve since gained an appreciation for Japanese green tea and matcha, chai (brewed Indian-style in milk with a very strong black tea and spices), Kashmiri tea, and tisanes. My tastes definitely have broadened since I stopped having sugar in my tea.

Since joining steepster, my world has been transformed by Laoshan Black 1st Picking – can’t believe an unflavored tea can taste like cocoa! It made me wonder what the black tea I’ve been drinking all these years is. My current favorite is Metropolitan Tea’s Cream Earl Grey.

I also have really enjoyed the tisanes – especially Roasted Almond by Capital Teas, which I keep bringing with me to share with others.

My tea tastes are also heavily influenced by the places I’ve been… ginger tea reminds me of Southeast Asia, sage tea reminds me of Syria, very strongly brewed black tea reminds me of Iraqi family, milk chai reminds me of India… I love to rekindle the tastes of places, from home to far away, in my cup.

Loves- matcha, rose, cardamom, bergamot, saffron, almond sencha green, cinnamon, ginger, and chocolate.

I do NOT like chamomile, rooibos, genmaicha, or flavored green tea, and I have an odd relationship with hibiscus, oolong, and licorice (I like them only on select occasions).
