I really liked this tea. The bergamot was just right and I love bergamot!

Down to 111. This bag is also three years old and in a paper envelope. What are the odds this still has any flavor? Interesting, definitely deteriorated, but also better than I expected. Tastes a little more fake than I recall.

This was one of the first Earl Grey teas I tried. This was when I first fell in love with the Earl. I still enjoy this brand, however, I found it could be a little tart/bitter and not so smooth. Does not taste too good if it steeps for too long.
My favorite tea but not my favorite brand.

I love this tea. I make ice tea in my coffee maker and this tea turns out perfectly.

drank Lemon Fresh Rooibos by Hedley's

Lemon additives, in my opinion, are generally really, really right or really, really wrong.

Hedley’s got this one right in a nice little bagged tea. Instead of being tart or bitter, the lemon just freshens and brightens the rooibos.

Nice little picker-upper without the caffeine.

Mmm…sounds lovely.

drank Rooibos Wild Cherry by Hedley's

Definitely has that “red cherry syrup” vibe, even without sugar. Luden’s … popsicles … Shasta cherry soda …

But not undrinkable, if you know what to expect. Bet it’s good on ice.

hopefully Hedley’s can take a bit of honest feedback

I think the red cherry syrup description was pretty much how Mom worded it as well.

I like this tea a lot. I usually don’t like flavored teas, but the flavor in this one is mild, not overwhelming at all and actually adds to the taste.

I only wish I could find it again to buy it.

Picked up some of this for cheap just because I have never tried it before. So far it’s been ‘win some – lose some’ with Hedley’s for me…but this one is alright! It smells very pleasant – I can smell both the kiwi and pear. I can also taste both of those flavors as well as the green tea. For bagged flavored green tea this is pretty good!

I might have to try this — I think my grocery store carries it.

Contains Ceylon tea with flavoring. I have never seen this brand in the store. My son got it in a gift basket. There were ten bags in paper envelopes all wrapped in cellophane – so you know it was fresh ;-). Upon opening, the envelope had no distinct smell. The bag seemed on the smallish side but the tea dust did expand quite nicely when brewed. The brew itself is dark and typical in appearance of other Ceylon black teas. The aroma was lightly flowery and pretty. I added a packet of sweetener (sorry to the purists) and tasted. Immediately tasted peach, then the apricot. Even using my 10oz mug this actually seemed strong enough to my tastes. It was very sweet. I should have used less sweetener. I am sure this is an inexpensive tea but I must admit, I rather enjoyed it.

I have no idea where how I came to have a can of this tea, but WOW!!! I love everything about it. I also added sweetner and at times some half and half. I have no idea how long I’ve had it, but it tasted really fresh. It is round tea bags, 20 of them packed into a round can. The smell is awesome and the taste is out of sight. The Peach and Apricot flavors are distinct and blend together so well. I’m going on-line now to find a store or an on-line site to purchase more to satisfy my desire for more of this wonderfullly delicious tea!

What I had was regular square tea bags but it was pretty tasty for old tea bags.

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

I was leery of this tea immediately upon opening the package. I could NOT smell any bergamot! I cannot recall (at least, not in recent memory) of an Earl Grey tea where I’ve opened the package and I couldn’t smell any bergamot. Sometimes the aroma is softer than other times, but, I can’t remember ever encountering an Earl Grey where there was no bergamot fragrance in the dry leaf. Discouraging, to say the least.

The scent of the brewed aroma did very little to relieve my dismay. I still can’t smell bergamot. Maybe a faint… chemically… somewhat orange-like aroma… but certainly not the bold, citrus-y, floral-esque bergamot that I adore.

This tea makes me very sad. Very sad indeed. I feel like someone stabbed my beloved Earl Grey right in the heart. This tea is no Earl Grey. Not at all. It doesn’t deserve that title. I don’t think it even deserves to be called tea.

Sad.

I am glad, however, that I got to try it. Why? I don’t know.

Just sad…
