Had a cup with milk this morning. Not really a fan – too cinnamony no matter what I do to it – so I’m trying to drink it up so I can get something I like better.

Mmmm, this is great iced with a teaspoon of honey too.
Mmmm, tastes awesome with milk too!

Camomille and green tea with fruity undertones make this Cancer girl a happy camper. Steeped for 3 min in steaming water.
There was a significant amount of fine debris – probably from the camomille – that had escaped my strainer at the bottom of my cup, which was a little annoying.

Skim milk does take the bitter edge off of this tea without masking the citrus flavours.
Brewed for 3 minutes in less-than-boiling water. Still a bit too minty.
This tea is delicious and combines two of my favorite things: tea and chocolate.
I think I may have over-steeped this a little as it was a touch bitter and the white tea was difficult to taste.
Not a fan of this one, it tastes to me like mint-flavoured water. However I’m used to drinking sweet iced tea so your mileage may vary.
ZOMG this stuff is awesome! The spices were less intense or bitter than with the traditional chai and the coconut flavour was well developped, the hint of citrus from the lemongrass making it stand out even more. This is on its way to becoming my new favorite tea.

Scrumptiously citrusy with some floral notes, just how I like my earl grey. The tea was surprisingly bold; I think it might be a bit better with some milk to take the edge off the tannins, but even without it was still a lovely pick-me-up this morning.
Drank it with milk this time, not bad.
Tastes good with milk too. ;)
What a difference making ice tea out of this made. It really brought out the fruit flavours, giving the tea a rather citrusy tatse.
I like the blend of spices in this chai, the coconut flavour is there even if you have to ‘look’ for it – a touch stronger would be nice.
Had this with dessert tonight – it went very well with chocolate cake. ;) It was a bit bitter, especially as I got to the bottom of the pot. A combinations of too much spice ‘settling’ and maybe oversteeping the white tea, I think.
I got two steeps out of this tea, the first at 3.5 minutes and the second at 4.5 min. The second one was turned into a very refreshing iced tea, although I like it both hot and cold.
The ginger flavour is the dominent taste although it isn’t overwhelming and it has a nice undertone of juicy peach that takes the edge off of it. The flavour of the green tea itself is largely masked although it lends a sort of freshness to the tea.
A light, pleasent green tea with a hint of fruitiness. I think this would be great iced, too bad this is my last bag of it. :(
Steeped it for 5.5 minutes in boiling water and it seemed to bring out the flavour of some of the other spices a bit more.
I made a strong cup of this forgetting that we had no milk. Ah well, it’s still drinkable even though it’s too bitter for my liking without milk.
It’s interesting that despite it’s robustness it still tastes better plain than the generic orange pekoe made the same way.
