Pretty good as an iced tea, the blueberry comes out strongly.

I like to make iced tea out of this, and it has such a strong taste of rose petals for me; reminding me of my grandmother.
Received this as a Christmas gift as part of the Bentley’s Finest Tea Green Tea Sampler Pack. I wasn’t really sure of how the tea would taste. It is light on the blueberry flavor but not so light that you can’t taste it. Slight bitterness as well even though it wasn’t steeped for long.

This is one of my favorite teas as well and I don’t normally go for a bagged tea. I’ve had trouble finding it lately so I’m saving my last few bags for when I’m sick, it does wonders for an upset stomach. It’s a very slight and slightly sweet tea.

So the website calls this tea “Oriental Treasure Green Tea” and again, it has a tiny tea bag. I made around 16oz with a single bag. It was more bitter than I wanted it to be, but it was still good. It made me want cake or cookies.
These tea bags are on the small side, so I only used it to make a single mug as opposed to my regular teapot. It’s what you expect from an Earl Grey. I’m perfectly pleased with it and it’s worth the money I spent on it.
One of my favorites- not usually a person for tea bags but this tea is perfect when you’re looking for something fruity and light. I have also found it is great for an upset stomach!
Got a whole gang of Bentley’s teas for Valentine’s day from my dad and am just now remembering to add them to my cupboard. So far, I can’t stop having this one. It is pure heaven. And my husband says its “not as bad as the other ones” so that’s saying something since he absolutely hates all things earl grey. Earl grey has always been my “safe tea” when I’m out because its the one tea that most restaraunts that offer tea carry an earl grey and they always taste pretty similar and enjoyable to me. I would list this one today as my 2nd favorite earl grey tea. My 1st being Kusmi’s Bouquet of Flowers No. 108 which I should really get to ordering soon.
I received a big Bentley’s sampler cube for Christmas and I decided to go with blueberry. The black tea base is actually pretty smooth and sweet. The blueberry adds a nice fruity touch to it and it is very natural tasting. No fake flavors here :) It’s not too strong but you can definitely tell that It’s there.
This can easily be called the worst tea I have ever tried. It tastes of a disgustingly sweet vanilla. I taste a bit of milk. However, there is no tea taste. Just from taste it would be impossible to tell it was a black tea at all. The sweetness just adds to how bad it really is.
You might like this tea if you enjoyed watching Two Girls One Cup because it feels like warmed vomit going down your throat. I don’t think anyone would(or could) drink this completely.
If I was stranded on a boat in the middle of the ocean with no way to purify any seawater and all I had to drink was a gallon of this tea I would simply drink as much seawater to make my life end short so I would never be put into the situation where I actually contemplate drinking this pathetic excuse for tea.
On my first sip I spit back into the cup hoping it would just go away. On my second sip I took the down it quick and don’t think about it approach. On my third sip my gag reflex kicked in and I decided I might as well pour it down the sink.
So in recap, DON’T drink it.
It really is mediocre to the point of almost being bad.
On first sip it tastes spicy with a faint orange tang. Halfway through I realized it just was not cutting it. This tea is gross if you don’t give it enough time intervals between each sip. In other words you can’t drink too much of it.
It does, however, have a tangy orange peel aroma to it.
So in recap, you might as well put it in a jar whenever you want to smell the orange musk because drinking just makes you rethink why you bother drinking tea at all.

I agree that the orange flavor is somewhat lost in this, but adding some cream and sugar with two tea bags seeping through consumption made the spice in this tea stand out for me. When prepared this way, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Did a latte with this one, too, and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
The Earl Grey flavor is smooth and rich, and the milk gives it such a wonderful creamy taste. I added a bit of honey, but I can’t exactly taste that, now that I think of it. All yummy, and a short note. :-)
I think I lowered the rating on this one a while ago, and I am trying to remember why?? IT’S SO YUMMY! The Bergamot and just wonderful smell and everything in this tea is smooth and amazing. I love it!
I added some vanilla caramel latte coffee creamer to this and it is ABSOLUTELY divine! :-)
I AM BACKLOGGING LIKE CRAZY!! This is from…..Yesterday? Sunday? I don’t know. To be honest, I have had several tea-less days, partially because I slept in and wasn’t craving a morning tea, partially because I haven’t had time, and because I was making fruit smoothies recently and enjoyed those!
Anywho, on to this tea. I am, to say again, going back through my bagged teas. And also, I had to re-discover green tea before I tried the green tea I recieved from Teavivre.
This tea was pleasant, with a vegetal taste and a nice, slightly honey-floral type taste going on. This review will be short, however, because I think I steeped it in the same cup that I drank my Pureh in, and that was a bad experience/taste with Pureh, and I think the smell and taste seeped in a bit. So I’m actually going to re-try this tea in a fresh, clean cup. But it was good!
This tin of “office” teabags has had a hard life, more than 2 years old and a storm survivor to boot. And even with that said, it’s a pretty fair bagged green when you’re light on the temp and time.
First time I drank this, it was ok. 3 minutes was the maximum suggested steep time and it tasted a bit bitter. I also forgot to add my review. Lol
Second time, first review.
Smell: Eh, you can’t really smell the tea. I’d blame the bag, but I’ve had lots of fragrant bagged teas. Once steeped, the smell is nice and fragrant but not too much.
Taste: I steeped it two minutes and it was AMAZINGLY good! A nice and smooth EG, not too strong, and very accepting of cream. :-) All in all, I’m very happy!!
Orange teas are one of my favorite types of tea, so I usually have high expectations for orange teas. Unfortunately, this tea didn’t quite reach my high standards, but didn’t completely fail, either.
Color: A reddish-black tea, smooth color, not too dark, not too light.
Taste: Bentley must be known for subtle fruit flavors. I can taste the orange in this a bit more than the other fruit teas I’ve had so far (raspberry, and one other, I think?) but this has a slightly stronger orange taste, so I’m happy. It’s not too much, could even be a bit more, but with a fair amount of sugar, it’s actually pretty nice.
I love peach, and I think this satisfies as far as a peach tea goes. It’s a simple black tea with a nice, smooth peach flavor. Not as subtle as Bentley’s other fruit teas, I’m glad I can actually taste the peach. Maybe a bit of cream would do nice, but I have yet to try it. A little bit of sugar makes the peach even peachier, and I think it would do fabulously well if iced. Over all, a good tea.
The bag that the green tea raspberry is also the same for this one, but this is black tea. Just a side note, I’ll change the picture later. :P
I happen to like this tea. :) It’s a smooth black tea with a subtle raspberry flavor. It’s not really strong, and it could possibly be stronger, but I like it. A little bit of sugar to taste and it’s a good cup. Over all, a nice tea.
