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.

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).

First off, I should have checked the ingredients before having this – I need caffeine in the morning so the fact that this is decaf makes me sad. Second, I couldn’t get behind the taste of this at all. It seemed like there was too much going on in the cup – the flavors didn’t blend well. Not my cuppa.

This tea has a wonderful mango aroma with a lighter mango taste. A great anytime tea but especially good cool or iced. Add a little sugar to make it a perfect sweet tea.

LisaD gave me this one… and I don’t get it. I cannot taste chocolate and the strawberries are very faint. It’s not bad, but it’s not over the top awesome either… I may not be partial to Ceylon… I don’t know..

I don’t dislike it – I will probably try it again sometime!

I wonder if you got some older leaves? I bought a big 4 oz tin of this tea, and then didn’t drink it for well over a year. It’s very light and bland now, not at all as wonderful as when I first bought the tea, when the chocolate-strawberry flavor was strong and delicious.
