Lovely! The fennel is oh-so-slight and not over powering! Which is perfect because the last several teas with fennel in them that I have tried the fennel has been too forward. This is nicely done! The chamomile is also nicely done…I’m not overly fond of Chamomile usually…but this is just the right amount for me! And the Mint is great! This made my stomach stop growling! YAY!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try!

I brewed my cup pretty strong, using a little extra leaf, and I’m very happy with the result. It produced a very hefty cup of tea! Very robust and flavorful. I usually add milk to breakfast blends but this one is quite flavorful without the milk so I decided to not add it.

I’m off to write a review of this tea for the SororiTEA Sisters Blog!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try.

My husband came home the other night with flu-like symptoms, and I am starting to feel similar symptoms. (Fortunately, my taste buds haven’t been affected yet!) So, I thought that this was a good tea to try today… hopefully, it will help with some of the aches and pains I’m experiencing.

Wow! This is really good. It’s like … tasty enough to drink even when I’m not feeling under the weather kind of good!

The flavors are gentle and smooth. Nothing overwhelming. Delicious!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sample of this to try!

This is a very good Earl Grey. The dry leaf has a very strong bergamot aroma which is something that I always look for in an Earl Grey – I LOVE that fragrance! The brewed tea is not nearly as fragrant (that is to be expected) but I can still smell a very lovely citrus-y note.

The flavor here tastes fresh and lively. The black tea base is unassuming and unifies with the bergamot to create a nearly seamless flavor. I almost want to say I am tasting just a hint of lemon to this blend, because it tastes more citrus-y than most Earl Grey teas that I have tried. That is not to say it doesn’t taste like bergamot because it definitely does, but it almost tastes like there is a little something more…

It’s very good.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sample of this tea!

It smells yummy! LOTS of huge cardamom pods in this blend.

Wow! All I can say right now is it’s a really good thing that I love licorice because this tea has a strong licorice flavor and it is YUM. There is a lot of complexity and depth to this tea.

A very pleasing chai tea.

This is a very nice Sencha with a smooth, sweet flavor. A nice vegetative taste – a bit like steamed vegetables … spinach, perhaps? – but without the prominent buttery notes that I often associate with Sencha tea. Yes, I’m definitely getting a spinach like taste here, although the flavor of the cup is really quite gentle.

Very nice!

This is surprisingly incredible! I was afraid it was going to be herbally and/or boring but it’s a delight!

It sort of smells like Adagio’s Foxtrot with a little lime and sweet flower and less chamomile. Well, to the eye, there is a lot of chamomile, imo, but when you taste it – it’s just enough and everything else works well with it! The Cinnamon is barely there…but I think that is perfect- I think any more cinnamon and it would ruin what’s going on with the tisane!

Ahhhh! Very nice!

I randomly chose this one from my “NEW” pile and thought I would try.

The Herbal scent is mellow which I appreciate. The color is a little cloudy and drab looking. The taste isn’t bad! I’m pleased with this revelation of flavor. I’m not saying it’s over the top but it is satisfying. It’s not overly herbal tasting and that is why I am happy!

The Lemon Myrtle and Elderberries are what ‘make it’.

This is pretty good for an herbal!

Fairly standard run-of-the-mill peppermint smell and taste. The only difference I noticed was the very slightest hint of, perhaps, chamomile??? Whatever it was it was nice!

Not much for aroma. It’s a dark brown with a reddish tint to it post infusion. This is a very mellow English Breakfast Tasting Tea. A nice average English Breakfast to have on hand.

I’m going to have a long day today and thought I would give this a whirl before I have to continue on with my day!

I can smell floral ingredients along with hibiscus and fruit!

It’s an interesting gray-ish/brown color with pink hues.

This is pretty darn good. I was a little afraid because of all the fruity tarty contents and that dreaded hibiscus!!! BUT…I’m diggin’ this! This is nice! This is different!

I’m going to try this iced at some point but for now I am going to say proudly that I am pleasantly surprised by this one!

Woot! Woot!

There is a very gentle green tea scent on this tea after infusion but it has a powerful Sencha Taste! VERY Green Tea! By the time I get to the end of the sip it calms down a little bit almost resembling a celery-type taste. Not bad at all!

This is my very first taste from Byron Bay Tea Company. The sample I received is HIGHLY scented…much like Orange GLO. It’s dark brown in color. The surprise is in the taste! I mean…everyone can do an Earl Grey, right!? Well, here’s what’s different with this EG…

Based on the aroma I thought it would have a stereotypical EG taste but it doesn’t! It’s VERY sweet and malty and you can still tell it’s an earl grey BUT without the faux bergamot. You can still taste the black tea and HELLO THERE IS A LEMON even!!!! WOW! Right at the end the Bergamot does a Superman/Clark Kent maneuver into a LEMONY goodness!

When they said “with a twist” – they were right!
Nicely done!
Cheers!
