DArjeeling fan here, who usually (over) spends dearly on 1st flushes, and rare summer picks.

Went out for another tea, and had to pick another tea to go with it. (promotion sales) to get one for free. Was not particulary interested in the teas that were offered, so in the end went for this bagged organic Darjeeling.

Never seen this brand here before.

Downside: o.k. it’s bagged. :( not my fave pick.

Plus: it’s one of the best bagged teas I had, and for a Darjeeling, it’s pretty darn good.

Will def. buy again when I need a quick brew at work or when commuting.

I tried one of these at work a while ago and really liked it. Bought myself a box last night, though, and the first cup was really overpowering. I left it for 3-4 minutes as directed, so might try a shorter brew next time

It’s one of those rare occasions that I actually fancy a ‘nice’ cup of chai. This is a new brand to me so I approach with caution and am sticking to the instructions: Steep time 4 minutes, boiling water, splash of milk.

Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, black pepper and natural flavour.

A few ingredients there that I am not keen on (cloves and cardamom) but hopefully this will be a nice blend rather than being heavy on one taste in particular.

First few sips: I can taste the cinnamon and cardamom so spicy and citrus with a slight after taste of clove but the milk has weakened that somewhat (thankfully). So far it tastes as I expected.

Half way down: The cardamom becomes stronger and now I am having trouble to taste anything else, I think that is one of the reasons I hate cardamom. No longer can I taste the delicious cinnamon or spicy ginger :(

For me that makes this cup average for chai and I dislike average chai. Nothing personal Dragonfly Tea but I shall not be buying this again.

I love this tea! Sometimes I try to avoid caffeine, so am always looking for herbal infusions and this has to be my favourite! I like Rooibos, but find the plain one a little boring. This Earl Gray version is really versatile. You can drink it with, or without milk, hot and even left to cool and drunk cold it’s really refreshing. I just really like this Rooibos version of Earl Grey!

This is a very nice Redbush with a nice enough vanilla flavour. Thankfully this flavouring isn’t overpowering or overly artificial tasting. Doesn’t quite knock the Lord Nelson Vanilla Redbush from it’s top spot but it’s a very comfortable runner up.

A nice all round tea that is perfect if you wan’t to relax with a hot drink and avoid the caffeine buzz

Increasingly dusty (see previous tasting note): eventually I gave this one away.

An unimposing rooibos with barely-noticeable bergamot. The tea itself has a pleasant floral honey scent, but it suffers from being individually-bagged. The leaves are a nearly uniform autumn reddish-brown, and it produces a golden-red brew. I find it underwhelming and disappointing; it’s currently being used up in my cupboard rather than delighted over.

Great with milk as an evening drink. The vanilla provides a subtle sweetness that doesn’t overpower the flavour of the rooibos.

Received in a swap. I love rooibos. I love chai. Was intrigued to see how they mix. This gentle rooibos is lightly spiced, and it tastes great. It doesn’t have quite the bite of black chai, it’s a little more soothing while still being full-bodied. I’m sitting here sipping it while listening to a storm rage outside. Perfect.

Bought this for the kids as I generally prefer black chai, but it sounded good and I was in the mood for Chai.
