227 Tasting Notes


Teabag smells like orange (vitamin C) candy that I like :) Cant really smell cinnamon.
Tea still smells the same. Who woulda thought that the orange smell can overtake the cinnamon smell….
Hmmm first sip was weird. Nice aftertaste but the very first impression was a bit wtf. Lets try it again.
OK its not bad but I’m not overly delighted with it either. I prefer the apple cinnamon one. This orange tastes artificial to me…

I ‘stole’ one teabag of every Twinings tea I haven’t tried yet in a hotel the other day. Shhhhhhhhhhhh ;)
This one smells awesome. Mmmmm apple pieeeeeee. Downside of it is that I’m hungry instead of thirsty after steeping and smelling it.
Tastes good – of apple pie (apples, cinnamon and raisins) but the black tea is veeeery vague. It’s a good fruit blend. But as TeaEqualsBliss said more like juice. I’m sure it would be yummy cold. Sweetened too.

So i really like it as a drink and that’s what counts for me but it’s not very tea-like. I’ll still rate it good cuz it’s kinda yummy :) And I’d gladly drink it again. But with a piece of apple pie on the side.

This one really looks and smells great. Kinda sad to see the ratings it got before me. But I yet have to try it. Maybe I’ll like it more…
I’ve used just a half of the sampler to make it.
Color is deep yellow. Smells interesting. Bit different than most green teas. Idk how to describe that difference tho :)
I actually quite like the aftertaste. It’s delicious, smoky and full. But the first feel is more watery and slightly acid or something like that. I like the contrast of the first taste and aftertaste. It’s not bitter at all.
It’s different. I like it. Quite a lot.

Smells like good black tea. Color is nice dark brownish.
Tastes quite common for a black breakfast tea. I assume it would be really good with milk and honey. Anyways quite tasty but not really wow-ing.

This is still the best tea i ever bought in Croatia. The smell that comes out of the bag when i open it wow’s. Tastes rather good too. Very nicely flavored. Among the best flavored black teas I’ve drank…

In advance I’m just sayin Lord help me! :)
Pure Jasmine tea is always a danger for me.
But lets go open the bag…
Haha while cutting the bag open i cut my finger with scissors. Thats soooo not a good start :)
Smells like jasmine – for me ewwwy…
Tastes not so bad. Somewhere in between of good and bad. Jasmine flawor is quite strong but green tea flavor is there too. The black vanilla jasmine was bit better tho. Better combo.
Am not rating it again. It would be round 50ish if i did… Wouldnt buy it.

Smells really nice. Quite gentle maybe of honey…
Tastes similar. Quite sweet. And quite flavory. Nothing overwhelming or impressive but its very smooth and drinkable.
Not a bad black tea…

OK, so it has that jasmine smell i kinda hate in tea. So far I either hated or loved jasmine flavored teas. Just something about jasmine and me. Hope it’ll be on the good side but I honestly doubt it. I hate the smell of this tea…
OK I don’t hate it. I love the initial taste in my mouth but I slightly dislike the aftertaste. It’s very subjective tho so i wont rate it. Tastes like good tea but there is an issue of jasmine aroma for me :) But I’d even rate it on the good side…
And yeah all the aromas – jasmine, vanilla and black tea blend in quite nicely.

Smells wonderful.
I put in milk and sugar. I’m expecting tasty tea judging by the smell of it. Whole office smells indian :)
Yep not bad. Should be steeped longer than 4-5 minutes tho. Quite tasty.

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…

Rating system (i’ll try to use it from now on):
0-20 sorry, can’t do it. ewwy
