A pretty standard-tasting earl grey, although certainly better quality than most of the stuff you’d get at the grocery store.

drank My Friend by Bag Ladies Tea

The tea bag smells good enough to eat right out of the package. The Ceylon masks the taste of the rooibos for the most part – not that I mind, rooibos by itself is too tart for me. The caramel and vanilla are a nice little aftertaste, not overpowering but definitely there.

A very mild black tea with little of the bitterness I tend to associate with other black teas. Tastes fine without milk.

Tried it with milk, it’s decent and the chocolate/carob sweetness is a bit more pronounced, but it still smells more exciting than it tastes. A bit underwhelming.

The re-steep is pretty weak and watery, I guess that’s the downside of bagged tea.

This tastes sweeter and less peachy than what I remember. Hmph.

Not bad for a tea that’s pretty obviously made out of tea dust and fannings. The smell is an interesting mix of apricot and a faint ‘toasty’ smell, which I don’t think is characteristic of white teas. Taste is smooth and there’s no bitterness. The hint of apricot is pleasent and not too artifical-tasting.

drank Wild Raspberry by Stash Tea Company

It wasn’t as sour as I expected it to be – most raspberry teas make me pucker from the tartness. I suspect that a lot of the ‘raspberry’ flavouring was really the hibiscus (which is the first ingredient on the list and has a tart cranberry-ish taste). I’m not a big fan of raspberry-flavoured things in general, but this one isn’t bad at all.

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!)
