|Type of tea
|Flavor aspects and Aroma
Flavor aspects: Natural
Aroma: Strangely enough, like a soft, rich cupcake from a bakery.
|Where I got it
The local grocery store
$9.99/canister (50 bags each)
|How I brewed it
Boiled water in electric kettle. Poured in travel mug w/ teabag, steeped for 5 minutes.
Good for rebrewing. I didn't notice any decrease in flavor the second time. Maybe a slight decrease the third time. I didn't try any further.
Lipton's Blackberry Black Tea has a far stronger blackberry flavor (and makes a delicious iced tea). The blackberry flavor in this is very subtle, as is the sage. It's pleasant, though. The blackberry comes in first, followed by the sage if you hold it in your mouth for a second. I can't for the life of me figure out why it smells vaguely like a good cupcake, but it's nice to have the sweet aroma with a hearty flavor.
This tea does not have a strong flavor of blackberry or sage, but is nicely subtle and rebrews very well.
No second review yet.
