Not quite as strong as i would like it, unfortunately. Still decent though, and doesn’t really oversteep so I can leave it in the cup/thermos.

I was actually hoping this would be a weaker version of M&S’ extra strong teabags because my system can’t take it. However this was pretty similar to their Gold blend, actually. It’s smooth, but just not my cup of tea (har..har… okay I’m sorry). I’ve had a friend tell me she liked it, but I personally prefer their extra strong teabags for the malty taste. I do wish they’d sell these in smaller packs, I had to give most of it away because I couldn’t possibly finish 80 bags.

It’s not terribly complex, but absolutely lovely nonetheless. Both flavors are well balanced. The dry leaf smells very sweet, but it mellows out once steeped.

It’s been over a year since I first started out with this tea. Since then I’ve tried various other Earl Greys, but this one tops the list. There’s something about the bergamot in this one that isn’t as sharp as the others. Finished my canister a while back, and I find myself missing it dearly. Saving up for a new one! This tea is going to be a permanent presence in my cupboard once I find the space for it!

The dry smell is extremely sweet, but once the leaves have been steeped it mellows out a little. Absolutely lovely though. Smells exactly like their strawberry jam.

This is great. Love how strong each bag is. Also love the flexibility of the steep time.

Ooookay I have cold steeped it and the tartness isn’t so sharp or strong this time. Still tastes like fruit-scented soap though

Very dark red color. The taste and smell remind me of fruit flavored chewing gum. The raspberry flavor is kind of artificial, and pretty sour. There seems to be a light minty feeling that lingers though. I like that.

I prefer Marks & Spencer’s raspberry white tea, I think ):

I haven’t tried cold-steeping this yet. I will review again when I do.

Well, it’s not as good as the Extra Strong Everyday Teabags. I liked the malty flavor in those. But I wanted to try the Gold Blend ones because my body reacted negatively to the strength of the Everyday Teabags.
Smells kind of odd, reminds me vaguely of cod liver oil capsules.
After steeping the taste is pleasant though. Mellow, smooth, and good with milk.

drank Rose With French Vanilla by Dilmah

I have mixed feelings about rose. Sometimes I kind of like it, other times I hate it. I think I like it in this tea, the flavor isn’t too strong. Can’t really pick up on the vanilla notes, but oh well. Good with or without milk (:
