A perfectly smooth blend of the finest tasting (or as far as I can tell haha) green and black leaves mixed with the essence of Beragmot. It may not really be considered an Earl grey because it’s first ingredient is green tea but it is by far the best “earl grey” that I have tasted.

Go look up Lapacho. I’ve never heard of a tea with this ingredient but it tastes pretty good and it’s good at soothing a sore throat. All of the flavors blend together very well but I think it is better with just a bit of honey.
how do i purchase. i don’t see a sight
I am completely hooked on this tea, if you want to add green tea to your diet, this is a winner, it has no “fishy” taste like you usually get with green tea, the lime is wonderful. It is an acquired taste as is anything good for you, but I have been drinking this for years, and keep a huge supply on hand. It is great for weight-loss, and also helps calm you, while giving you just a small dose of caffeine to help you wake up gently. LOVE THIS!!!
The citrus (lime) in this reminds me of cleaning products, which doesn’t do much for the appeal of this tea. Not much to write about in the taste department either, unfortunately. Last bag of this (from a variety pack), and I won’t be repurchasing!
I blended this tea with fresh mint. I used 1 teaspoon of each tea and let it steep for 4 minutes. This will be a favorite personal blend that I will find in my cup often.
I truely enjoyed this tea this evening while relaxing with a book. This is a very mild tea for quiet moments of relaxation and enjoyment.
Brewed this for over 5 minutes and the tea was still fairly light in colour and pretty flavourless. Definitely not much to write about. I only have a couple of bags left of this and I won’t be sad when it’s been used up!
This one is completely fail for me. It smells faintly citrus-y, faintly lime-like, but never quite right. The flavor isn’t there at all. I was very sad to see this taste test flop.
One of my favorite oranges (just behind Tazo’s Wild Sweet), this one needs a long steeping time at a high heat. But it turns out perfect. It really is the scent and taste of oranges sticky and sweet on your fingers and in your mouth. Sometimes I find it just a touch too abrasive or sweet, but it’s really the perfect back up.
From yesterday morning. This is still what it was when I opened the sampler box, boozy and warm to the scent but too sharp on my tongue.
A long time Island Rose favorite. This is warm, fruit and gorgeous. The hibiscus and cinnamon make this one amazing. I can never advise it enough.
I’m finally down to my last bag of this—it used to be a favourite, but my interest in it waned. The rum adds an interesting twist to the black tea (and it smells really good and a tiny bit boozy), but overall it’s a pretty bland tea. I barely get any vanilla from it, and the black tea is really generic. I probably won’t bother buying more.
Delightful melding of rose and tea.
This is a decent blend, but nothing special. It’s fairly mild and smooth, and doesn’t get bitter even when over-steeped, but really just a run-of-the-mill black tea.
It’s alright. The black tea is nondescript, but fine – tastes typical of non-premium bagged black tea. The rum aroma and flavor is strong, and there is just a hint of vanilla flavor. It would probably taste good mixed with a chai.
