There is a definite blueberry flavour and it tastes quite complex to me. The black tea is a bit sweet, but also tannic (but not overly bitter!) I really love this tea, I just wish they had a decaf version haha.
Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity, Honey, Sweet, Tannic, Winter Honey

So drinking Wonderland tea has been on my bucket list for a while. Mainly because having a tea bag with a little tag on it that says “Drink Me” is the sort of meta thing that a book nerd like myself just can’t resist. I wasn’t expecting anything extraordinary from the tea itself, so I wasn’t disappointed to find that this is pretty standard fair. The pomegranate is recognizable, albeit a bit weak, the base is ok. But the tea tag is so cute! There’s even a little picture of Alice on the other side sipping tea :)
Premium Blend of Indian Black Teas, Safflower and Calendula petals, Oils of Bergamot and Orange Flavors.
I added some milk and Stevia.
No sólo es el té, es lo que lo acompaña… Viene de un alegre día en Disneylandia en compañía de mi hermana y sobrino. Comprado junto a una bella tetera de Alicia en el país de las maravillas.
Flavors: Bergamot, Orange
Sipdown! Actually, I didn’t drink much of this one. My partner had a pretty bad cold, so I made him lots of tea with honey. I did sneak a sip before handing it over, though. This tastes like a pretty standard earl grey: slightly astringent generic black tea with a tart bergamot flavor. It does work quite nicely with the unique sweetness of manuka honey.
This came in a boxed tea gift set that I picked up when I was at Disney’s Hilton Head resort two weeks back. I didn’t have high hopes for any of the tea in the collection and bought it mainly for the novelty.
Yesterday, I found myself bleary-eyed and stumbling in the morning as I tried to make myself wake up enough to drive an hour north to meet some friends, to drive a further hour north to see a field of sunflowers in Jarrettsville, MD. The gift box was sitting on the counter and I cut through the plastic tape and grabbed this one, tossed a bag into a travel mug, and turned on the kettle.
This tea also has the distinction to be the first steeped with water brewed from my brand new kettle, which arrived on Saturday. My brand new kettle, which I had not planned or wanted to buy, because I came downstairs Thursday to find the cats had knocked my old one off the counter and the glass had shattered into pieces.
Cats, man. Cats.
But back to this tea. Which is… well, it’s drinkable. But not anything to write home about. There is only the faintest taste of bergamot, and it’s quite lost if the water is too hot. So, pretty bland Earl Grey. Which honestly, is pretty much spot on with my pretty low expectations prior to drinking.
This morning’s cold brew! I didn’t take a lot of tea with me for the trip; just things I thought I could probably sipdown that I might not get around to as quickly at home otherwise. This was pretty decent; I always like starting my day of with Earl Grey. Though this actually tasted a lot more like orange, something a bit floral and musk? I enjoyed it regardless, but I’m not sad that I’m all out of it now.
Tonight’s “Mini Vacation” adventure is grilled anise. I don’t have a grill at home, so I’m taking advantage of my Dad’s to try out a recipe that my friend Meisha has been recommending for months now. The smokey haze taking over the city might make that somewhat problematic, though…
This is a queued tasting note.
Had this one hot in a timolino with a little splash of milk. I had to finish it off before it went bad and EG traditionally takes milk well. I liked it more this way than I did as a cold brew, which is how I first tried it.
I still think the bergamot is incredibly light handed, but the orange and milk combined to make a very silky, creamsicle-like flavour which was really pleasant. And that weird clash of bergamot and sweeter orange notes is pretty well covered up. Still couldn’t make this a regular thing – but it’s a much needed improvement!
For someone who isn’t all that crazy about Earl Grey I’ve certainly been drinking a lot of it this week…
It’s about time I tried this one; my Mom was nice enough to hunt for it for me when she went to Disney last year and it took months to make it from her house back to me; and then months again for me to actually try it.
At least it not only was in a sealed tin (an absolutely gorgeous one by the way) but in a vacuum sealed foil back as well. Also, I don’t know why I thought this was Earl Grey and rose, because it’s not – maybe since the tin is covered in pink script with tons of decals of roses on it? But it doesn’t actually say rose anywhere so I should’ve known better than to assume.
Dry this smells very, very citrus heavy with more of a fresh peeled orange scent than a distinctly bergamot one. And, it actually does come off a tiny bit floral too. I prepped this as a cold brew because I thought since the orange seemed to be quite strong that it would brew up fairly sweet.
It actually does taste a little more like plain orange than bergamot, though the bergamot is significantly stronger in taste than it was in the smell. It’s kind of weird though; it doesn’t taste like the bergamot oil has turned or spoiled but it is clashing a little bit with the orange, which is more of a candy orange than a natural one and with the faint taste of floral notes, which are natural tasting, things aren’t fitting together seamlessly here.
What it ends up equating to is a fairly average Earl Grey that I think you’d find yourself drinking more for the Disney/Alice in Wonderland aspect than for the taste of the tea itself. And that’s perfectly ok because if we’re being honest here I think that’s who it’s ultimately marketed for anyway.
I’m quite happy I finally tried it though!
