Easily one of my favourite black teas, and a lovely twist on the standard Earl Grey. The tartness of the grapefruit is more forward than the usual bergamot, and the scent divine. When steeping a second time, I reduce the steep time to 2 minutes or less. I often add just a pinch of extra tea to my second steep just for that fresh burst of grapefruit.

A very relaxing herbal blend, but a hint of bitterness… perhaps the valerian? The chamomile isn’t overly strong, which is nice, but adding some extra peppermint (I have a plant on the windowsill) made it even better. That said, I like Teaopia’s Sleep Well blend a bit more, although Mother’s Little Helper is still a nice cup before bed and it does help with sleep.

For a night-time herbal, this is one of the better ones… no bitterness to it, and the flavour is pleasant. Nice colour in the cup, very easy to drink, and relaxing before sleep.

A lovely green tea with an almost grassy flavor, which I I like – fresh, nice light color and clean on the palate. Can be steeped a couple of times. Tastes better when the water is a bit cooler and not over-steeped.

One of the nicer jasmine green teas I have tried – I have purchased this one repeatedly. Smooth flavour, nice fragrance and can be steeped 2 to 3 times assuming the water isn’t too hot. I steep it a little cooler than recommended… not usually over 75 C.

Love this tea! The fragrance is divine… lightly floral, but not overpowering and the green and black tea combination is a nice balance.

I’m not overly fond of this one as a hot tea – perhaps it’s the combination of the cinnamon with the floral or herbs. I’ve tried it several times, all hot, and while I wish I could like it, I simply don’t. It’s OK as an iced tea but there are plenty of others I prefer iced over this one.
