I wanted a Hersey’s Bar…for a change…but this is healthier! :) LOVE the smell! It’s so Dark Chocolate smelling…just what I was craving!

Has a very earthy and floral aroma that takes me straight to the garden. Having trouble tasting the passionfruit though (not necessarily the fault of the tea, probably just my untrained palate). The tart bitterness is present, but I am still missing fruitiness from the passion fruit.

Pretty nice flavor for a more run of the mill lunch tea. Really powerful roasted nutty tones, both in flavor and aroma. A little bitter towards the end, but nothing that isn’t manageable.

Resteep. This is definitely not a tea that can be resteeped. I should have guessed, considering it’s a mild tea, but I like trying anyway. Tastes like coloured water.

I’m a little confused by Fortnum & Mason’s categorization of this tea as black, as I put pouchong generally in between green and oolong.

The aroma is subtle – and to me, the best part. Like with all floral teas (rose petal, etc.), it’s a complex tea. The flavor isn’t for everyone. I like it, but it’s a tea I would not drink every day. Rather, I’d save it for violet season or other celebratory occasions.

Run over with hot water first, seep only ten seconds in a smallish cup, then take a sip and breathe in slowly over your tongue. You will experience an inexpressible kind of sweetness. After your first cup, you can seep again six or seven times, ten seconds at a time, until the flavor is gone.

I drink all my teas – as is – plain. This was a FREE SAMPLE for ordering a catalog. It’s very dark in color. Scent and taste are a little above average, but I really like it. I’m sure this will be good for more than one steep.

I was more careful about the steeping time and water temperature this time and was rewarded with more flavour. :)

That’s more like it. Just what I needed.

I think I’m going to have to give away the rest of the tea I just had.

It’s 85 degrees outsides and sunny, great day for another pitcher of iced tea. This one is inspiring in all its sugary sweet goodness. If you like fruity teas, you’ll love this one. The pitcher comes filled with fresh strawberries and balls of watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe. The honey is star of this show by far, but it works in concert with the combination of fruits and tea flavors. It lingers just long enough to allow you the pleasure of savoring its great taste, but isn’t like normal honey that sticks in your mouth. Its timing is perfect, staying just long enough to make its point but not so long as to overstay its welcome. But once the honey as calmed and receded to the back of your tongue, the cool juices of the watermelon and honeydew massage your taste buds. I just think these “watery” types of fruit work so well with an iced tea like this. Their flavors are given the chance to show their true colors when blending with the rest of the liquid. Very enjoyable! It’s also interesting how the oolong flavor rides in on the tail of these powerful fruit flavors, reminding you that you are still drinking a tea and not a juice mix.

They really make the extra effort to perfect their tea here at the Radiance Tea house in Manhattan, I highly recommend them if you’re in the area (55th near 7th).

Mildly smokey, or peat flavored. A drinkable tea, especially on a cold winter day.

A nice smooth cup, the green smooths over the chai spices, while the spice add new depth to the green. A solid cup :)
