58 Tasting Notes
Delicious! I don’t remember the taste profile since it’s been ages since I made it but I just had to tell the world that this is an awesome tea. Not to overpowering and not too wimpy…but just right! I’ve got to make more tomorrow! I’ve been on a coffee cycle these last few months and tea hasn’t seen the light of day for me until recently and now I’m back on a tea cycle, lol. I need to go through my huge stash…cause I’m the only one that drinks the stuff.
I don’t know if I used too hot of water or steeped for too long (4 min too long?) but this was very astringent while hot and warm but once it cooled down it was decent. It would make a better iced tea in my opinion. I’m normally a fan of Assams and Assam blends but this is a straight Ceylon with no flavoring (like French Breakfast – which I like). Worth a try at least once! I’m glad I was able to get this as a sample (Silver Tips Tea does one free sample with every order:)
I like how you can use boiling water with this one. It’s just easier for me then having to wait for the water to be “just right”. Anyways…
This tastes just like a Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie:) Simple and well balanced. I may acquire some in the future. Thanks Shelley ’s mom for this sample!
My mom is happy to hear that you like it. She is on steeps text as Susan P if you wanna be formal about the credit :) I convinced her to sign up, but she doesn’t log anything unless I am over her shoulder at the computer and tell her to. And she doesn’t do her own swapping, so it’s all through me.
When they call this Thin Mint I think of Girl Scout cookies..but this is not it…nor do I think that’s their goal. I taste a vegetal green tea and a side of peppermint. It tastes like a basic kind of tea to me…nothing amazingly special. But that’s why I’m trying every kind of green mint tea out there…so I can find what I like:) Thank you Shelly for this sample!
This is a very lovely cuppa! At first I was put off by it but once it cooled down I LOVE the strong vanilla that comes through:) It’s smooth and strong. Not as strong as an assam but quite good. I thought being a Ceylon it may be very astringent but not much if at all. I love everything I’ve tried so far from Silver Tips Tea…thanks for this free sample guys! I love your company so far:) Generous sample sizes are great:)
This was what I was looking for from Arbor Teas!!! I ended up getting a sample from Silver Tips Tea of their Assam Organic tea and was trying to find a similar one from a company that sells organic Moroccan Mint AND organic Assam. Unfortunately, Arbor Teas regular Assam tastes nothing like Silver Tips but this English Breakfast one is a close contender! I love how deep and robust it is WITHOUT a hint of astringency…unlike Arbor teas Assam, Nillgeri, and Irish Breakfast(this one is a runner up to English Breakfast). Two thumbs way, way up!
