Had this for lunch with a little bit of milk. It was my last bag and I am a little sad that it is now gone.

It is amazing that when I say I’m not going to drink a type of tea again, I try it again for good measure. It still didn’t taste like anything but I prepared it with milk. It made a pretty good plain milk tea. Something to have when you want something simple. Rating boost.
I think I finally found a Grey that is a good day to day Grey. It is nice and smooth. It isn’t rough at all but it isn’t weak either. It is just a nice well-rounded tea. I am sad that I don’t have more of it.
This was a little disappointing. It didn’t taste like much to me. It was nice and warm but it made the back of my throat dry. It was also a little bitter so I sweetened it with a little sweet red grape juice. Just a couple of drops out of my biggest grape.
I don’t think I’ll drink this again because it just didn’t taste like much.
I had two cups of this for dinner. I had them in a school coffee mug which is a little smaller than my normal mug so it was strong. The first one I had plain and the second one I had with some milk. The milk mellowed out the flavors but drinking it strong was an interesting experience.
This was one of the teas that my friend gave me. I actually made it for breakfast this time. I tried a few sips of it plain and it was nice. It was a stronger flavor but the flavor did not punch you in the face. It was more of a “hey, it’s time to wake up now” buzz.
I put a little bit of milk in it, just enough to turn the tea from a nice rich brown to a nice toffee color. The milk let the flavors mix better and made for a smoother cup.
Overall, I really like this tea and I wish I had more of it to drink.
Big cup + hot water + two bags + long steep = happy
I just steeped this as my cuppa before bed. My friend went to the tea plantation this summer and brought me back some samples.
It smells nice and peachy. This is my first peach tea so I’m not sure if I’ll like it. It is just hot and plain right now. Something tells me that I should have let this steep for much longer than I did. It doesn’t taste like much but I’m not sure if it is just because I have a bigger mug or not.
It isn’t bad but I was expecting a stronger flavor. A few more sips later and I have decided that the tea is very light and almost buttery. It leaves my throat a little try but it isn’t unpleasant. Maybe if I had more fruit teas, I would like this more.
My cafeteria is running out of tea. I had a choice between this tea and some green tea. Since I didn’t really want green tea, I went with this.
The first glass I had tasted like pumpkin. I think I was impatient and I didn’t let it steep for very long. I think it was more like two and a half minutes than my usual four. And I put some normal milk in it. It reminded me less of gingerbread and more of pumpkin pie.
Then my friend came down to eat with me and I had a second cup. I decided to experiment a little. I let it steep longer (it had a stronger flavor so I must have steeped it around four minutes this time). Then I put chocolate milk in it. It was fantastic! It was this nice spicy chocolate flavor. It was just a little sweet but it didn’t overpower the tea. I was so glad I had this version at the end of my meal because it tasted more like a dessert tea to me this time. I might have to try putting a little bit of chocolate milk in the rest of my teas and see what it does to them.
Hot with milk for lunch. It compliments pulled pork sandwiches pretty well actually.
I had this a couple of days ago for lunch and it makes me so sad that I only have two bags of it left. It tasted so good. It wasn’t sugary sweet which was fantastic but it had enough flavor to compliment my meal.
I just need to start making myself hot tea again instead of going with the big pre-prepared sweet tea that my school has.
I was browsing my teacher’s tea basket and found this instead of the tea I was looking for. So I decided to pick it up and make it for dinner.
I wasn’t sure how to make it so I just dumped it into a mug of hot water and stirred in the powder until it was dissolved. Because I wanted a cooler drink with my meal, I then dumped the mixture into a 16 oz glass filled 1/4th with milk.
It was really interesting. The milk made it very creamy. I thought it tasted like a pumpkin pie. It was good. I would probably have it again but not very often. It was almost too sweet for my taste.
I got excited when I saw this sitting in my teacher’s tea basket. She was excited that I wanted to try it. So, after several attempts of taking a drink (and burning myself) I finally got a taste.
First, it doesn’t really taste like much. It tastes a little peppery to me. Not bad but not something that I would drink all the time.
Second, this tea smells like bacon. I swear it does. One of my classmates sat down from me and asked where the bacon was so I wasn’t the only one.
Overall, it isn’t something I would drink all of the time but it was interesting to try.
This is my mom’s favorite tea and I was happy to see it in my school’s cafeteria. I remember trying it before when I was little and hating it because it wasn’t sweet enough. So, I decided to try it again.
Now, my mom doesn’t really like gingerbread but this is what the tea reminded me of. Fresh baked gingerbread. It wasn’t bad, and I actually drank it a few times. I actually like it best when I brew it together with Twining’s English Breakfast.
Well, it has been a long time since I have written a note. My English teacher loves tea and she keeps a very well stocked basket of teas. I found this review on an index card with my notes with a note on it to put on here after class. Well, that didn’t work but I remember writing the note! Here is what it said:
faint carmelly taste
probably needs sugar to bring out more of the sweetness
would make a better sweet tea, not desert tea
I remember not being very impressed with it but I may take a bag to try it out as a sweet tea sometime during the weekend. My teacher keeps her room open and urges us to come and relax in the room. And I have two reading days coming up so I will probably be making this tea again to try as a sweet tea. As much as I love the school’s normal sweet tea, I need more variety.
So, I’m finally getting around to writing about this tea. I find it a very light Earl Grey but I like it a lot better than Stash’s Earl. It is very nice to drink before bed and at any time of the day really. I bet this would taste a lot better if I didn’t have to estimate steeping time but I have been rushing at college recently. Maybe next time I’ll be able to slow down and actually enjoy a cup of tea.
Yummy. After putting up with a no-name tea with coffee creamer at work, this is fantastic with a little bit of milk. It is a bit of a balance to find because if I put too much milk in it then I dilute the flavor but I find the flavor to be lacking with no milk in it at all.
Don’t remember how long I prepared it but I do remember that it tastes really good with the leftover milk from my honey nut cheerio bowl.
I figured out how I like drinking this.
Two teabags for about 4-6 minutes, a half a mug of water, and fill the rest with milk. It isn’t my favorite tea so far but I have apparently been on a kick because it is now all gone.
This is quickly becoming my standard cuppa. Hot water, steep for 4 mins (mostly), add a splash of milk, and enjoy. : D
After a dirty cup ruined my first cup of tea this morning, I’m making another one. This time I am making it strong and adding a little bit of milk to see if that improves the flavor or not. I have 20 bags worth of this stuff, I have to experiment with it to see if I can make it pleasant or to see if I shouldn’t buy it again.
Edit: The longer brew made the flavor a little stronger and the milk helped cut any bitterness in two. I am just not impressed with this Earl at all. I would much rather Twining’s Earl. Worse comes to worse, I’ll just pitch the teabags at the end of the summer. I will have to see how long it lasts.
I wanted a nice warm drink before going to bed but I know that if I drink a stronger black tea I will stay up a little later than I mean to. (Still have to go to work in the morning.) So, brew it weak, put milk in it, and out comes an instant cup of comfort that will actually help me get to sleep. For some reason this type of tea really helps me relax.
Having a nice hot cup of this. If I add the milk right after it has finished steeping I can taste more of the flavor in the cup. I might have to remember that. I am trying to see if I can make it differently to bring out even more of the flavor.
This tastes….different. Hot and plain. I might end up drinking this one with milk. It isn’t bitter, it just doesn’t really have the flavor that Twinings did. It doesn’t have the aroma that the Twinings did either. Not bad…just not the OH-MY-GOD good that I was looking for.
It tastes like tea that has something else in it but you can’t tell what exactly it is. I think that is supposed to be the signature Earl Grey flavor. It just doesn’t taste like much. The more I drink it the more I go “meh”. I mean, Twining’s Lady Grey has more flavor than this. I must try it with milk next time. Maybe that will help.
Edit: With Milk Thoughts
Dark Builder’s Brew: brings out the flavor a little more
Builder’s Brew: the flavor is a little stronger than the first
Dark English: it starts to get creamy here. Not really any more flavor.
English: Nice and creamy. Probably tastes like a very traditional black tea with milk.
Milky: tastes oddly like a weak glass of chocolate milk to me. The flavor is mostly the milk. This would be a very nice cup to give to little kids that want to drink what mommy and daddy are drinking.
Overall, I will probably drink this probably with some milk. I’m going to try it with different sugars to see if that has any effect on the flavor at all. Other than that I am going to share it with my little brother because it is a very boring tea for me but it would be a nice black tea for him. I don’t think I would pick this tea up again unless it really wows me sometime in the close future.
I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.
I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.
I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.
If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
