drank Honeydew White Tea by Inko's

A very fresh-tasting cold drink with the sweet (but not too sweet) taste of honeydew melon.

Mmm, I love the smell of jasmine tea. This one was nice even if the Harney & Sons one is still my favorite.

The black teas used in this earl grey are a bit too harsh for me to drink it without milk, but other than that it wasn’t bad. The bergamot flavouring was fairly weak and the overall taste nothing special. A decent tea, but not one I’d write home about.

I like this one. I bought it after seeing how popular it was here and I don’t regret it. It’s light and gentle enough to drink without milk (although I would like to try it with aswell) and the hint of extra citrus is very refreshing.

drank China Gunpowder by Lavender Basics

The tea it makes is pretty dark for a green tea, it tasted kinda grassy with a bit of astringent bitterness at the beginning. I’m not sure if the latter is because I steeped it too long (4 min) or if the water I used was too hot. This is another one I want to play around with before I can say if I like it or not, but as of right now I’m not really feeling the love.

drank Russian Caravan by Lavender Basics

The Lapsang Souchong mixed in gives it a hint of smokiness in its scent and taste but it’s not so overwhelming that the smoke is all you get. It tasted very smooth and it went very well with a bit of skim milk.

I tried it with boiling water this time instead of just steaming water and it brings out the ‘toasty’ notes in the tea’s description.

I couldn’t really taste any mango or passion fruit distinctly – mostly all I could taste was the safflower (which isn’t unpleasent mind you). I might just need to steep it longer so I’ll reserve judgement until then.

OMG I love it! The tea was wonderfully fragrant and the taste was just the right balance of flavours. It was hard to see the pearls ‘unfurl’ inside the sachet – this one might be better as a loose tea just for that reason.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
