Very,very bland. I didn’t add sugar, because I am trying to cut back on that, but it needed it. I did add milk, just to make it drinkable. Really not a fan of this one.
35 Tasting Notes
When I was little, a family friend used to bring me the little figurines from his boxes of Red Rose tea.
I’ve been going through some rough times, and haven’t been feeling the best. My more expensive teas have just been set aside for now, I don’t want to waste them. I came across one of my little figurines in a recent move, and so I picked up a box of this for nostalgia’s sake.
So now I am sitting here, with a little sandcastle in my hand, sipping this tea. It’s your basic store-variety black tea, nothing astounding…but it’s familiar. My husband was thrilled when I opened the box. He caught a whiff, and it was familiar to him, too. I guess everyone knows someone who has had this tea in their cabinet.
I added a bit of 1% milk and a packet of sugar to this. Settled on the couch, wrapped in a blanket, and two purring kitties beside me. Maybe this can heal my heart.
This was an enjoyable cup of tea for the price. The base, the bergamot…not strong enough for my liking. I find the Wegmans brand bagged to be a little stronger.
It was a comforting & light Earl, though. Definitely “Earl Grey Light”.
I’ve been spoiled by loose leaf tea. As I drink this, I’m comparing it to all of the nutty, wonderful loose leaf teas that I like better. That’s not really fair to this tea, but there it is.
This is a light, sweet treat. I think that’s what it is…I’m used to black teas with a little more “Oomph”. I’d like it to have more kick. That being said, it tastes like a cookie when you add a packet of raw sugar and some milk. Yummy.
This has a very “bakey”, thick flavor. My guess would be that that is the barley. I had this with milk and a packet of raw sugar and it was a great sweet treat. I’m pretty sure that I will be picking up another box of this before the display runs out because I am liking it more and more each time I drink a cup.
I steep this for ten minutes. The poor indicator at the bottom doesn’t even go that high! :)

A good, everyday cup of tea. Not too strong in the citrus department. I’ve had other Earl Grey teas that I’ve liked better, but this one is an affordable staple to have around. You can usually find at least a packet or two of this around my place at all times.
(Oh, and five minutes, and I didn’t ruin it! Bonus!!!) :)
I like Bigelow Teas. Perfect for tucking a few different teas into your pocket before you head out for work.
This one is yummy. I just read here that the box says to add sugar to bring out the peach flavor. I didn’t do that, since a friend gave me this packet, and therefore, no box to read. I like how sour it is without sugar, though. I really dislike it when I feel like I HAVE to add sugar to a tea to enjoy it.
It’s a little artificial tasting, but not enough to turn me off. Is it my favorite peach tea evah? No. Would I purchase it again? Gladly.
A friend of mine recommended that try some chamomile teas because I’ve been having trouble sleeping.
I am not sure why I tried this…(could have been the free tin, I won’t lie)…because I loathe spearmint. Oddly enough, I love this tea. Everything blends together well, and it is just so soothing. It is such a comforting cup of tea that it has helped me wind down before sleep on a number of occasions now. I will definitely be repurchasing this one. :)
I’ve been feeling very grumpy lately, and this is the only tea that I have been wanting. So much so that I’ve gone though a full box in less than a month.
The first time I tasted this, I really wanted it to be snowing. It seems like it would be perfect for that kind of day.
If you like candy canes, this tea will not disappoint you. I am not a fan of peppermint teas in general…it’s the extras that make this one. Just ask my husband. I pointed it out to him in the middle of the grocery store when he tried to get me the regular peppermint tea by Celestial thinking that they were the same thing. ;)
I do not like what I think is the amount of stevia in this blend. (I do not make a habit of using sweeteners other than sugar, so I could be wrong.) It’s just too darn sweet, artificial tasting, and there’s nowhere near enough pumpkin. I literally had to drain the cup after two sips, and now I am stuck with a box of tea I hate. Boo. :(
