This is an absolute middle-of-the-road Earl Grey. It’s not bad, but it isn’t particularly fantastic either. The sachet boasts of hand-picked tea leaves and real bergamot imported from Italy, but it actually tastes less authentic than Twinings, which lists “bergamot flavoring” as an ingredient rather than actual bergamot.
The bag smells nice, but I’ve been fooled by some very nice-smelling bags before. The problem here is that the nice aroma from the bag really doesn’t show in the cup. If you steep it for too long, it gets bitter, and if you steep it for a reasonable amount of time, the flavor is weak. At best, this tea will remind you that you enjoy drinking higher quality Earl Greys, but I assume it would suffice in a pinch.
I had this tea after breakfast this morning. I found the peach taste in the tea almost completely masks any taste of green tea. The peach is fairly strong but not fake tasting or super sweet. The second sip is where I tasted some very light green tea taste. This would be a great way to interest someone in green tea.
I know this is random and not timely, but for some reason, there are these teabags in the break room where I work now. So I tried it. In August.
It’s actually really delicious. It’s smooth and creamy, like eggnog. But it doesn’t really taste like eggnog at all. I taste warm cinnamon, vanilla, and honey.
I’d drink this year round. I mean it. What a nice surprise!
Mourning the death of Robin Williams, big time. The man had so many demons. I hope he’s with the angels now.
I missed my Vanilla Caramel Lipton tea when I finished it. It’s a comforting, sweet flavor. I figured I’d give this one a try too. And hope that it makes me a little less sad.
I taste burnt cocoa, popcorn, sweet vanilla, and a hint of caramel. This brand’s Vanilla Caramel is much more dynamic and less dessert-y than Lipton’s. I like it!
Smells divinely of peach flavor. First of all, I haven’t added a tasting note in awhile. My grandma passed. Funeral was Friday. This was my mom’s mom. Last grandparent, laid to rest with grandpa, both cream mated. I just need to relax tonight, so I’m drinking tea. I like the peach flavor very much. Wishing everybody well, I haven’t really been around lately. I still love Steepster though.
I haven’t been posting here much, still recuperating, waiting to get my full sense of taste back (I can taste sweet, & bitter, but I’m missing so many flavors), & swamped with life.
I did sample a bag of this tonight, & quite honestly, it’s better than I expected! I added a little sweetening, which set it all off, & not bad for a no-caffeine cup.
Great introduction to a variety of herbal teas! My favorites are Orange & Spice, Sweet Dreams, and Mint Medley. The Chamomile one is good too!

Very good, nice and strong (but not too strong). There are tones of rose and a hint of lemon. I really enjoy this one, especially when I have a sore throat, congestion, or headache- or just for a little boost of energy. I find it works and tastes best when I drink it as hot as possible.
I tend to mix 1 bag/1 tsp of this with Celestial Seasonings “Sleepytime Sinus Soother Wellness Tea” for a bit of a mix. They taste very good together.
Flavors: Lemon, Mint, Peppermint, Rose, Spearmint
Nice, I enjoy this very much- it gives me a natural, pleasant, sleepy feeling. The taste is soothing, sweet with a touch of orange and mint. The sweetness is stronger thanks to the touch of mint. This is one of my favorite herbal teas, especially for relaxation or before bed!
Flavors: Mint, Orange, Rose, Sweet
I admit to having been spoiled by Harney & Sons’ super fresh and delicious Egyptian Chamomile, but even Pukka Love is a lot better than this Sweet Dreams chamomile blend from Bigelow. It tastes either stale or sour—or perhaps both. Perhaps the mint is old, or perhaps the hibiscus is making the whole mess taste sour. I know that this particular bag is not old, because it came from a new box in my housemate’s cupboard. It’s just not good.
To dump or refrigerate? That is the question.
