This tea is fantastic. Simultaneously mellow and flavourful, a great afternoon or evening tea. (Or drink it in the morning, what am I, your mother?) One of my favourites.

A nice strong black tea. Beware of over-steeping, becomes astringent if steeped over, say, 5 minutes. Either way, a great way to start the day.

drank Earl Grey by Higgins & Burke

I’ve had plenty of Earl Greys, and this one has been my favourite insofar. I drink it as often as I can. For me it seems to have the perfect blend of very strong tea and aromatic bergamot.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

A pretty bog-standard Earl Grey. It’s delicious (as any Earl Grey is) but nothing to write home about. I’d drink this as readily as any other Earl Grey.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 15 sec

It smells absolutely fantastic, but by and large it’s just another Earl Grey. The flavour isn’t much different than Stash’s standard Earl Grey, but when when you brew it there’s the added benefit of making your immediate surroundings smell wonderful.

Not my favourite. It might smell like rooibos, but it’s rather bland by comparison. Tastes somewhat like grass, but not in a bad way. I’d drink it again if it was the only thing available quite happily, but I don’t love it.

Love it! I love everything about it, except the price. I can’t track it down outside of a Mighty Leaf sampler pack anywhere other than online, and then the price gets… a tad ridiculous.

195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more

I just bought a box today at my local Whole Foods. Maybe try there? I think the price was $8 or $9.

I’ll have to look into that next time I see a Whole Foods! Thanks for the tip. :)

drank Rooibos Chai by Gathering Place
30 tasting notes

Honestly, don’t drink it hot. It makes quite a nice iced tea, but if you try to drink it before it cools, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

It’s around 70% chai-esque spices and 30% rooibos.

A perfect blend of Pu’erh and coffee. If you dig coffee and want to try tea, this is where to start.

Makes an amazing iced tea that needs no additives for flavour. I love it. (Also great hot during the winter.)
