This is pretty good. I have this weird relationship with Earl Greys and bergamot in general, where it tastes like licking a bar of soap plain, but somehow becomes oddly appealing with milk. Same goes, here. The extra citrus isn’t overwhelming but gives it just a bit of a zing that most Earl Greys wouldn’t have.

I enjoyed this, but was surprised to see that it smelled more like lemon dry than I could smell or taste it brewed. That said, the mint is the real deal. It is a bit spearminty, but frankly, real mint to me usually doesn’t have a strong flavor. It iinstead creates this cooling mint effect that is more of a feeling than a taste, kind of like drinking air conditioning. Which I LOVE in an iced tea.

I enjoyed this – it is very smooth, not bitter at all, and has a malty rich flavor. What differentiates it for me from other blacks I’ve tried is the hay flavor mixed in there, which I normally don’t taste in black teas. That said, it didn’t wow me enough to want to buy more.

This might be one of the most interesting teas I have ever had. It is making me CRAZY that I can’t pinpoint the exact herb/savory flavor that this so strongly reminds me of. It is food for sure. Makes me nuts.

Anyway, this is sweet while also being a bit savory and definitely has strong pine and herb components. I steeped it twice before needing to go to sleep and I enjoyed it very much. Here’s hoping I pinpoint the flavor or flavor combo that is evading me…

I drank this before subbing yesterday, when I realized I was battling yet another stomach issue. I don’t like ginger, but I know it soothes upset tummies, and this has lemongrass and other herbals in it to help cut that. I am not the biggest fan, but it is drinkable for me. Whether or not it worked is anyone’s guess.

I enjoy this brand, as I’ve said before. I like this tea – it is great hot but also is very good iced. It is juicy and tropical, with a bit of green from the tea itself. A solid bagged option.

I normally find earl grey to be soapy, but found that the creme versions help cut that, alongside some milk. I like this most in the morning, even more so now that it is spring and the citrus reflects the freshness of spring.

I got this as a bonus sample in a Birchbox order. Makeup and tea? Pretty much my favorite things ever. I like this brand as a teabag option, they might even be my favorite. This is strong, a bit sweet, and is very forgiving to a bit of oversteeping. It is mostly orange with just a hint of dessert-y vanilla. I would definitely repurchase this.

This is delicious and refreshing. I made it with the intention of icing it, and it was floral and fruity and green and basically tastes like springtime. Excellent to get me through the long days of subbing and help me decompress when children decide to flip their desks over like little maniacs over things like not being line leader.

True story.

I enjoyed drinking this. The first steep was really smooth and creamy and sweet, with florals in the background. I’m not cool enough to be able to pick out more specific flavors. The later couple steeps are much more floral and fruity and tasty. I love oolong, and this one would be good for every day.
