I’m ok with this tea, but get cravings for it. I like the black tea base, but the ginger/peach is a bit effervescent. The scent is wonderful, though, and that’s why I usually brew this. Personally, I like tea that has more body.

Went to the same restaurant. Had the same tea. Tastes the same. Good for finals week, though — warm and has some kind of taste to it.

I’ve had two cups with milk for studying tonight, since I’m between finals (both of which are horrible and terrible and all sorts of other superlatives). I’ll have at least two more before I finish studying. Tomorrow, I’ll take a cup to my molecular biology final to ease my terror of homologous replication.

Good luck! You’ll do fine. :)

I’ve been trying to dilute one cup of this down with milk all day. The natural cherry flavor is really strong and it’s difficult to taste much else except a very flat blackberry leaf note. I would have personally been happier without the cherry flavor — it’s a bit like medicine. Sugar does make it better, though.

I’m not a fan of this one either!

I made a pot of this — personally, I like the black tea that comes from the US rather than India, despite the fact that the import tea releases faster. I added milk and a splash of raspberry sugar free Torani syrup. I added a bit too much syrup, but diluted it down with milk and tea as I went along. A little syrup goes a long way….

I like the taste of this tea; it reminds me of peaches’n’cream instant oatmeal. Neither the tea or the oatmeal truly tastes like the peaches grown in my region of the world — but I like it nonetheless. The only other peach tea I’ve had that I would rate better than this would be Lipton’s discontinued Sunspree Peach.

My mycology professor gave me a bag of this. I had to get over the kombucha part before deciding to try it, but it’s actually a very pleasant tea. A bit hard to describe the taste, though. The lemongrass was tangible for the 1st infusion, but the taste diluted out for the 2nd and 3rd. It would be good for a day full of statistics programs and thesis writing.

I put one teabag of this tea into a cup of milk and microwaved it for ~ 1 min 20 sec. With a bit of sugar, it’s a perfect nightcap! Made as regular tea, it has a light taste that’s somewhat creamy and smooth.

drank French Vanilla by Bigelow

This is one of my favorite flavored teas. It’s great with lots of milk and a bit of sugar. It has a strong vanilla flavor that isn’t too bitter or artificial-tasting, but also has a warm black tea body. I’ve found it difficult to oversteep (if it tastes bitter, add more milk!), but it can be kind of wimpy if you understeep it. It’s a great tea to put into a thermos for a picnic or to take to work, and it also makes a good iced tea.

I got this tea not expecting much, and I’m pleasantly surprised at how good it is. It’s not my favorite, but the ginger is bold and warm and the lemon has a nice soft tone.

Wish it weren’t so hard to find!

I can only find it for pretty much one week at one store! It’s sad, really!

Bio

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.
