19 Tasting Notes
This tea…it will be odd at first! It has black pepper, resulting in an odd peppery taste – it may grow on you. The pepper manifests as an aftertaste, blending with the Cardamom, Ginger, and Cinnamon. This tea is cheap….and it tastes decent. I would buy it again and recommend it to anyone wanting something different (it was my first encounter to tea with black pepper in it)

The first tea I tried that I absolutely hated – even rinsing the leaves and discarding the first infusion.
The flavor is terrible and will make you wince. I got exited about Pu Erh, but this has totally turned me off of it. Trust me, this Wegmans “Bold Leaf” Pu Erh will make you go
Its the only bagged raspberry tea I have found locally. Unfortunately, some of the flavoring is artificial. Regardless, it does taste like raspberries. Do not drink this without sugar – the artificial flavorings will not work out and will taste disgusting! It needs at least two teaspoons of sugar in a large cup.
I am a nut of iced raspberry tea…so I logically enjoy it hot as well. If you like raspberry tea…this is for you!
Well, I have a LOT of experience with this Earl Grey, Its the tea that I had every morning at my college cafe (where the guy who works there would say in a strong unknown accent “My freind, you want da Earle Grey Tee!?”), powering me through horribly long days of studying and dealing with incompetent professors.
For starters you can taste the Oil of Bergamot in this tea – the whole point of Earl Grey.
The flavor is smooth and perfectly complemented with a little bit of sugar. Brew it for a LONG time and it will be strong. Even the non-tea people I know liked this tea!
While I had a good year with this tea, it seems that recent batches have gone downhill in quality with an off-chemical taste. I have no idea why this is but the bags at the Cafe, as well as the most recent box I bought at a local grocery store taste wrong in comparison to the previous hundreds of cups I have had. So, I must forewarn you, try this tea at your own risk – perhaps its back to the way it was a few months ago (and if it is, its worth a try. But due to this, I cant recommend it)
