10 Tasting Notes
I really like the nice red tin :D I honestly chose the tea because I like the tin.
I love the soft warm spicy-ness, but this is unfortunately one of those teas which tastes like water when brewed too short, and undrinkable when brewed too long D;
I originally got this as a Christmas present for my father but kept it for myself (sorry dad!) as it was just too good.
It smells diviiiiiiiiine, a little like mint when in the packet, but tastes like biscuits.
It’s looooooooovely, I can’t get enough.
Even though it’s double use, like many of Harney and Son’s teas, I tend to make a big mug of this rather than save the bag.
I love this first thing on a cold morning with a cinnamon quill…mmmmm :D
This has to be my all time favourite tea, it completes my morning <3
I really love milky, sweet teas, and I think that this tea is THE favourite because it takes milk and honey really well. Indeed, it tastes ‘incomplete’ without them.
It’s best piping hot, although if I don’t finish my pot in the morning I have been known to bung it in the fridge for the afternoon.
It always cheers me up, a large mug of creme brulee, a good book and my nutbag cat are the best thing for a rainy afternoon like today. GAH, is summer a foreign concept, New Zealand?
I adore this tea. I have been drinking English Breakfast with my father since I was 8 years old, and it remains a fast favourite, even though I drink flavoured tea more often. I got a tin of this tea for Christmas (2011) and by the beginning of the next February, I am down to two tea bags. I think it is because this version of English Breakfast is creamier than others, which have an earthier flavour. I love it.
Hmmm… I am not quite sure what to think of this tea. On the one hand, I love the scent, like Turkish delight~ so delicious! But on the other, the taste is so disappointing! It tastes nothing like the scent, it tastes nothing like anything. It’s so disappointing D;
