298 Tasting Notes

Looks really nice before brewing – a lot of dried blackberries, lemongrass, pieces of lemon peel. Smells very perfume-y, with artificial honey flavouring in the foreground and citruses in the back.
After brewing it’s still a bit artificial, but much more mellow. Citruses, flowers, honey, berries create a very warming sensation, perfect on a grey and rainy day.
And the taste is mainly lemongrass, lemon peel, flowers, honey and berries, slightly acidic, a bit perfume-y, at the same time warming and refreshing.
Not a bad tea, but would be better with more natural honey flavouring.

drank Irish Cream by Teekanne
298 tasting notes

Another very old favourite I’m having after many years.
Cream and whiskey aroma, as can be expected. And for an artificial flauvoring it seems pretty natural, warming and pleasant.
Full, malty body slight sweetness.
Not bad for a big company bagged tea.

Flavors: Cream, Irish Cream, Whiskey

Honestly I don’t recall drinking it, but certainly saw it on shelves in the stores.

drank Premium Assam by Greenfield

Pretty decent Assam black tea, malty and earthy, slightly astringent and a bit sweet. I bought it to blend it with other varieties, but it turned out surprisingly good when brewed pure.

Rooibos definitely in the front, but berries compliment in it very nicely, they stay in the back, do not dominate, contribute to the overall impression.
Slightly sweet, slightly sour taste.
Nice warming tea, craftily connecting rooibos with unusual additives.

Really nice colour with the reddish hue.
And very refreshing aroma with pomegranate and lime in equal amounts plus a bit of yerba mate in the background.
Flavour is fruity, a bit sour, not sweet.
Tasty mate-based tea, really refreshing and invigorating. Not exactly my style, but I can appreciate it.

Not very strong aroma. A bit herbal, a bit citrusy, with tangerine peel in the background. The bouquet is not very expressive, but it is soothing and relaxing in a way.
And the flavour is way better. Citrusy, slightly sweet, with the tangerine peel tang.
I’m not a big fan of lemon balm, but here it fits.

Strong fruity aroma from mulberry, sweetish, a bit perfume-y.
Fruity, rich, warming flavour, a bit natural, a bit artificial.
Nice tea. One of the few I encountered that contains white mulberry, a fruit I really enjoy both in raw and dried version.

Really refreshing citrus aroma with fruity/floral notes in the background.
Slightly sweet, citrusy flavour with apple, rosehips, chokeberries and the base pu-erh tea in the back.
Warming, passable.

The aroma is subtle, mostly with pineapple plus a bit of apple and base green tea in the background. Seems a bit too perfume-y.
Fruity, refreshing, not too sweet flavour. The pineapple is in the foreground. The whole composition is decent and warming, but the tea itself is very weak.

Flavors: Apple, Grass, Pineapple, Sweet

I think I had this tea, though not from Detox series. Interesting blend nevertheless, but not a tea I would crave for again.

This one is from the box containing six teas in total. I’m not sure about the others, but I know that this tea is available as a separate product.

Straight from the bag this tea smells much more like Irish Cream than like crème brûlée, with distinct whiskey and cream notes.
But after steeping the aroma seems right. There is cream, toffee, toasted notes, nuts, Danish pastry. Yep, it’s flavouring, but it gives the correct sweet dessert impression.
And the taste is sweet but not oversweetened, caramelly, toasted, not overdone with flavourings. Satisfies my sweet tooth.

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.
