I made this by cold brewing it! Tastes delicious iced, especially on a warm day. The scent is light, but I can still smell the apricot.

Good tea. Smooth and tasty without being overly sweet or rich. Good dessert tea that isn’t heavy.

Woody, with what another taster described as a little briskness. I agree! Tasty.

I had this with milk this morning. Since I’ve pretty much already said all that there is to say about this tea, you can go back and read my past tasting notes.

It’s been awhile since I had this. Its canister seems better at staying full than say Thai Chai for some reason… ;)

I do wonder why =P

I take it this is not Earl Grey Bravo but Earl Grey Yukko. I’ve never had it, so I’m tasting vicariously through you two.

My boyfriend certainly thinks so! Me, I don’t mind it, but it’s a bit too heavy on the bergamot for me.

I normally drink this tea with milk, but with my cold I figured it might be best to skip that, so I just drank it plain with a teaspoon of honey. Even after a relatively short steeping time and added sweetener it has a pretty astringent bite to it that left a bit of a dry taste in my mouth, so I can see why many people don’t like this tea.

Yeah I’m not too big on Earl Grey myself…there’s sooo many other great options. I think I just really dislike bergamot and the astringency…

Urgh, it’s too early and the boyfriend is being pesky. Hopefully this tea will make me feel a bit more lively.

I cut the steeping time back a bit from normal and that seems to have reduced the pungency of the bergamot.

I have found that to be true as well!

Yeah the bergamot can sometimes be a bit much at the full 5 minutes.

I think I was right when I said earlier that this tea is like a high-quality version of Twining’s Lady Grey. I think it’s a bit too harsh and astringent plain but when I add milk or honey (like I did this time) it takes the sharp edge off of it.

Brains….. BRRRAAAAAAAAIIIIINNNNNS!

In case you hadn’t guessed I stayed up all night studying for a midterm. Guh. At least this tea is helping me perk up a little bit.

I feel your pain.

Side note: ever played this? [I will forwarn you, it’s extremely addictive. Might want to put it off until after midterms.] http://www.popcap.com/games/pvz/

Now I totally have Jonathan Coulton’s RE: Your Brains stuck in my head. Go Zombies!

Skim milk does take the bitter edge off of this tea without masking the citrus flavours.

Scrumptiously citrusy with some floral notes, just how I like my earl grey. The tea was surprisingly bold; I think it might be a bit better with some milk to take the edge off the tannins, but even without it was still a lovely pick-me-up this morning.

This tea was really smooth. Not a strong flavor. It was a very mellow tea, and quite good.

WOW! Loved this! The coconut is the best part! I am totally going to purchase this in the future!

This almost tastes like chai instead of a green tea. It’s delicious! Definitely one of my favorites.

I have the sample tin of this and it’s the first time I’ve brewed my own Jasmine tea. It has a very pure flavor and I look forward to drinking it. Like @thestranger said, I’m not sure if I should order more or if there might better Jasmines to try first.

Steeped this one for about 10 minutes and then let it cool before drinking, and it came out really smooth. The smoky flavor was downplayed, and it came out with a nice, rich black tea taste.

Loved it! Earthy, with a hint of chocolate taste at the end. It was also fun to watch the pearls unfold (I used 4 for a good-sized mug of tea).

Wow, tasting a nice sweetness today that wasn’t apparent before.
