This is a full-flavored tisane, or caffeine-free infusion, with lots of yummy berry flavor. Perfect warm or iced, good for kids, and also ideal for baby showers where the mommy-to-be is probably going caffeine-free.

I LOVE this tea. It smells wonderful and has pretty pink rosebuds to make it aesthetically nice as well. I like the natural sweetness of the cinnamon and it isn’t overpowering. It is a pale amber color when steeped, but not real good for multiple steepings. I’m lucky to steep twice before it’s just colored water, pretty normal for an herbal blend. Good quality tea, excellent price considering it comes in a tin to keep it fresh. Highly recommend trying if you like the herbals.
This is my go-to Earl Grey tea for daily use. I like it not only because the company is based in my native Kentucky, but because the tea is very well-balanced between the bergamot and the black tea. As much as I love bergamot, I was drinking Earl Greys with too much such that it was ruining other types of Earl Grey for me. This was a good compromise. I enjoy with a bit of German rock sugar from Teavana.
This is a such a treat for a black tea. It has just the right mixture of delicious orange peels that awakens the senses and plenty of creamy floral notes of the Sri Lanka Silver Needles, not to mention an added small jolt of caffeine from the Golden Yunnan black tea. Delicious!
It’s December 1, which means I start getting into the Christmas spirit. I thought I’d celebrate with a Christmasy tea. This is a tea I’ve had forever… I bought it years and years ago. It’s been in a tin all this time, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s diminished in quality. At least the dry leaf still smells pretty cinnamon-y.
The steeped tea smells pretty much like cinnamon with a brightish black tea base behind it. I don’t get much orange (there is orange peel in the blend), but I never remember this one having much orange flavor to start with. I remember I loved this tea way back before I was a tea addict. I also think I used to drink it sweetened. This tea is still remarkably pleasant to drink after more than five years. The black tea base is pretty smooth and the cinnamon is festive and spicy but not too strong. Still, overall it’s a bit meh, which is likely due to it’s extreme age. I bet that I would drink this one more if I took it home, brewed it really strong, and drank it with milk and sugar.
Slightly tart, definitely berry. Not really sweet at all, just berry. I wouldn’t say that the blueberry is the star of the show, but is definitely a main character. The currants and hibiscus are much more prominent.
I brewed for 5 minutes. Next time I’ll brew for 10 and see if I get a stronger tea.
Another one from my cousin. A pleasant surprise! I’ve tried English Breakfast tea before and found it quite bitter and hard to drink. Granted, the tea I tried was cheap, bagged, and probably stale. This one was very strong and rich, but not in an off-putting way at all. Just wonderful with milk and honey. A good staple.
Another sample from my cousin, who works at Elmwood Inn. Thanks to her, I won’t be running out of tea for a long, long time. XD Made 16oz of this with 2 teaspoons of the loose tea, a little bit of whole milk, and a tablespoon of honey in the rough. The taste was strong, but not overpoweringly so. There was definitely a lot of variety in the spices, and every sip tasted different. It’s naturally sweet, making it a great desert tea.
