Not bad! I get a little artificial aftertaste, but for an at-home mix, it does just fine.
55 Tasting Notes
Finished up this box; its not gourmet but I like it fine; a cup of comfort.
Still liking this “Lapsang – Lite” very much!

Strong bergamot balanced nicely with a creamy bouquet, very nice when Earl Grey is what you crave!
Playing catch up — I get so wrapped up in the moment that I forget to log the experience. I have brewed this up several times and find it to be “OK” — that is pretty good from me, since I am not a huge fan of anything strawberry. It is a nice one to share with friends.
Playing catch up. Sometimes I spend so much time indulging in lovely teas that I forget to log the moment…
I am not warming up to this tea. Maybe it is user error, steeping too long? Not fragrant, mostly a bitter tonic. Does it require sweetener or cream? Didn’t like it enough to experiment. Maybe I will, on a day when I have time to play around with it.
Made a pitcher full to serve iced with dinner tonight, can’t wait!
Is it wrong to brew the just for the bouquet?
So I saved it and iced it later…waste not, want not!
Found this interesting blend during a recent vacation. Visually it is pretty and the aroma is sweet and intoxicating so I bought a big bag…
On the advice of the salesperson, I steeped it for less time than I would have left a typical green. I was glad that I did this, as I learned later that too much time makes it very bitter. But a short steep was fragrant, floral, sweet, and nutty. Very almond-y, as I like it.
This is a versatile tea and is equally delicious hot or iced. A little sugar is a modest remedy if you get distracted and leave it to steep too long.
I am just loving this tea this summer. It is surprising, refreshing and perfect for summer sipping. Sadly, it is also about all gone…
I am not a huge fan of hightly flavored tea, but this one is good occasionally. Its honey flavor is prominent, and somehow the bouquet makes me think of fruitcake. Darkly sweet, fruity, texture is a bit heavy.

Dense, complex, naturally sweet; those are its nice qualities. But I have to be in the right frame of mind for this tea, on the down side it is decaf and its bouquet is like a strong vanilla candle.
I really cannot add anything that has not already been said. The lovely color, aroma, and taste transports me to an exotic part of the world and makes me crave a delicious Larb salad, crispy fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce, or anything with basil.
Sadly, finished off this package of tea today. Happily, a new package arrived this evening! Magical!
Still loving this tea, it is pale in color but suprisingly complex and flavorful. I think I will go prepare another cup right now!
I have way too many teas in my cupboard and so I don’t get around to visit each one that often. But I really should make a point of visiting Queen Catherine on a more regular basis as this is truly one of my faves for black tea. Tonight, I sweetened it just a tad with some cane sugar that is infused with real red raspberry juice, produced by a small Indiana company called “The Salt Girls”. (This sugar is good enough to just eat) Might need to have one more cup…
It seemed so good in the shop. But at home, it is just sorta … meh … not offensive, just not that enticing.
Yep. It IS a chocolate tea kind of night. MMMMmmmmmm…….
Something so primal and soothing about this tea, and girlie. It is becoming my addiction.
Mmmmm, I like this one more and more…it is becoming my go-to tea!
Shared with Mom and Cyndi on Mothers Day Weekend. Made sure that I was heavy handed with the leaf and turned out a delicious pot, enjoyed by all — especially by me, who did not really enjoy it so much the first time.
