I think the white tea somewhat dilutes the peppermint, and the two mix to give an aftertaste slightly reminiscent of toothpaste. It’s not a bad tea, but I’d rather have pure peppermint in my cup (:

The peppermint masks the white tea, unlike Snowman’s Magic Spell, where the peppermint gives more of a fresh accent. Those who are pure-peppermint tea fans might find this blend a little artificial due to the additional presence of the white tea. But overall, a relaxing blend with a pleasant, subtle aroma.

Adding more sugar might help tone down the peppermint. Do not steep for more than 3 minutes!

Backlog: I had this tea a couple of nights ago after a particularly stressful afternoon. The smell dry is LOVELY! Steeped, there’s a bit of funky smell, but upon tasting, it is not evident in the brew. Very nice! The mellow menthol is just right, and it blends wonderfully with the other flavors. It isn’t my favorite tea, but it is pretty good.

This is a satisfying herbal tea, comforting, in fact, though I didn’t need comforting when I drank it. So like welcoming an affectionate hug or a warm bath without having sought that out. The fruit flavors are gentle and blend wonderfully together… must be the elderflower that set it apart from other tisanes… a soft but not at all boring flavor profile. Thank you, KittyLovesTea, for the gift of an unexpected hug :)

There is a lot going on in the aroma and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I can smell cocoa, fruit, flower, and the tea itself. It may be my fault for being a slipshod steeper, or it may be the tea, but the taste just doesn’t live up to the smell. It tastes like black tea with sourish notes and a flowery flavor that makes the addition of milk a bad idea. I don’t really like flowery teas, in general.

Yummy! I love peppermint teas. The tea base is good, the floral notes are subtle, and I have no idea what ‘cream flavoring’ is supposed to be, but there’s this note of something I can’t quite put my finger on, so i’m just going to attribute it to that.

I am so impressed by this tea. It tastes just like actual dandelion and.burdock, only not fizzy. I’m not saying that it is delicious, because it’s not, but it’s about as good as you could.hope for, from an adaptation of a sweet fizzy drink.

I’ve been experimenting at work by getting people to guess what the smell is. Most people have guessed aniseed but I think that’s just the Burdock coming through. It’s sweet-ish but not sugary, so works ok.

I couldn’t get into this tea really. It’s a bit grassy, but it doesn’t have a whole lot of flavour. I suppose it is comparable to supermarket bought frozen vegetables, I don’t dislike it, but it’s a bit bland and doesn’t have enough flavour to get me excited

I haven’t drunk too many everyday teas – the only ones I can think of, off the top of my head, are Yorkshire Tea (my parents’ tea of choice), Tetley and PG Tips – but in all honesty, I’m not sure there’s a massive amount of variance within the genre. How much can you change the formula?

I find that Clipper’s tea is the slowest to brew and produces a fairly low-tannin tea if you leave it longer. It isn’t very rounded, rich or smoky, but has a tang to it. For me, this is good – I mostly drink green and white teas and can’t much cope with a gutsy breakfast tea, especially as I don’t take milk, sugar or lemon. I tend to brew it until just golden.

The mint in this is perfect – tingly, cooling, and slightly sweet, it reaches out and shakes you by the shoulders (in a good way!). It also doesn’t seem to get to the bitter stage, which is usually a problem I have with bagged tea; I can easily leave the bag in while I drink it, though I don’t like to. When it comes to all-nighters or fighting colds, this is my tea of choice.

Before this I was drinking Pukka’s mint green tea, which completely pales in comparison – here, the mint plants itself firmly in front of the tea and makes sure you notice. I would happily choose this over any other British green tea.

I discovered this tea at my local co-op, and got hooked. I drink it every day and enjoy its lightness. The raspberry flavor is noticeable but not artificial tasting. I love the fact that it’s organic, because most days I drink 2-3 cups. it’s no longer available on Amazon (US), so I order it from Clipper in the UK — it’s worth the high shipping!

The raspberry is really noticeable, it’s a delicious light tea.

really, really nice, fresh, thought-cleaning tea. all the better, suddenly deeper, if you inadvertently leave the bag in.

A nice, warm clovey Chai that doesn’t even require milk. It’s only got 4 or 5 ingredients, so it’s simpler than other Chai mixes (notably, it’s missing cardamom). Worth checking out.

I found Clipper tea when I was at Marshalls and was drawn to the design and the fact they’re organic and fair-trade. I bought the White Tea, Chai, Chamomile and later Mixed Berry and Green Tea. Chamomile and White are my favorites. They’re light and purifying and perfect with a teaspoon of honey.

Satisfying tea for me when i urge for something sweet n stimulating. The taste seems a bit perfumey and blendy though. Good for the money

Its flavour seems quite artificial to me. Not a fresh flavour -dull dusty and blah, lol. Not a fan at all.
It says 5% “natural orange flavour” -wth is natural flavour, could someone explain that to me please?

After drinking so many wonderful sweet tea’s I felt that this morning I wanted something bog standard (for me anyway). This tea is in my tea caddy in the kitchen that my husband occasionally dibs into when he fancies a cup, we are not one for plain black (although I do have plenty of it on my tea cupboard).

This is still as lovely as I remember, sweet and fragrant with strength on the black tea itself. A drop of milk and if I’m feeling particularly sweet I also have half a spoon of sugar. Destination yum yum.

Earl grey tea is the perfect drink for the morning with it’s combination of strong black tea and citrus sweet bergamot.
I find that one way to tell a good Earl Grey tea apart from a not so good Earl Grey tea is the smell of the bag or loose tea before it’s actually brewed. Good tea’s (such as this one) will have a strong yet fresh smell with notable bergamot fragrance which is enhanced once brewed and creates a perfect blend.

Smell (once brewed): Sweet and tangy (almost like orange which is the bergamot).
Colour: Dark brown (I don’t have milk)

Taste: With our smell test done that leaves the taste and waiting an average of 3-4 minutes for this beauty to brew is well worth the wait. The black tea gives your body charge while the bergamot awakens your senses. Each mouthful is naturally sweet with strong earthy tones from the black tea and it leaves a beautiful and somewhat perfumey after taste.

Due to it’s natural sweetness it’s perfect for those of us on a diet as it helps keep our calories to a minimum. I also love that this tea is yummy with or without milk so you can either go for strength or smoothness.

If you have the patience, try brewing it like I did in my cold brew Teas 4 method. I steeped for 10.5 hours overnight, but you could probably get away with 7-8 hours. I ised 4 teabags of Twinings EG, which I believe are 2g each. My loose tea tea guesstimation would be 1 level to slightly heaping TBSP. My glass press I used is roughly 20 Oz.

KittyLovesTea

Sounds wonderful _ I will give this a try when I get some space in my fridge.

ScottTeaMan

Is your version bagged or loose??

KittyLovesTea

I have the bagged version and quite a lot of it.

ScottTeaMan

I just bought quite a bit of Twinings EG, otherwise I’d consider it. I found it on Amazon, but it is temp sold out. It is almost double what I paid for the Twinings. I’m not sure the Twinings has natural bergamot, but sinnce the Clipper EG doesit’s probably worth the price. :))

KittyLovesTea

Wow I just checked Clippers shop to see how much international shipping is….it costs a minimum of £40 which is at least $70! It is a very nice tea and worth the try. Twinings used to be my usual Earl Grey supplier but Clipper is much more fragrant and natural, much nicer. Not sure how much it is on Amazon but maybe you could treat yourself.

ScottTeaMan

It’s $20 for 120 teabags [12.84 pounds], plus in US it’s eligible for free shipping on orders over $25. it’s really a fair price.

After Twinings started to, ahem, experiment, I went in search of a new bagged Earl Grey. This is by far the best I’ve found so far.
