I think this tea even got me hooked onto green tea. I used to find it too bitter, but this blend combines it wonderfully with mango and a pinch of ginger. Yummy!

I have had a nice birthday and an exhausting one at that so to end my night I’m having a cup of this camomile and lavender tea. Hopefully the lavender will aid in making me have a good nights sleep.
The colour once brewed is yellow and it has a floral and lemony scent. I brewed this hotter than I usually would for a green tea but I’m only following the instructions taken from the back of the tin.
Light, refreshing, floral, sweet, sour. The lavender starts off strongly and then lightens rapidly into a lemony sour fog. It’s not heavy or thick by any means which makes it easy to drink. I’m not a huge fan of lavender but when used in moderation like this blend it makes an enjoyable drink. I’m not a chamomile fan either but again this blend works well together.
The first tea from my London Tea Company box sampler. Thank you mother for my gift, new tea is always welcome in this house :D
This tea has a nice caramel touch in sweetness and smoothness. Rich, light, refreshing, malty, clean. Very nice for a bagged tea and great for an everyday tea. One of the cleanest tasting breakfast teas I have tried.
Hi everyone! Been a little quiet lately despite having bought some new teas, mainly because I’m trying to get through my opened teas before opening the new ones. My Strawberry Rooibos,Strawberry Sencha, Afternoon at the Palace, China Oolong and Rose Petal are all looking for loving homes. Also, I changed my username from melanchocolate, hope that doesn’t confuse anyone!
This tea has been in my cupboard for so long I can’t believe I’ve only just added it to my Steepster cupboard! They serve it in the cafés on campus here actually, and it’s so good I had to order some of my own at the start of the year. It’s brilliantly mellow and smooth, as a white tea, and the elderflower and apricot give it a natural sweetness. The elderflower’s not hugely noticeable but it is definitely present and goes perfectly with the white tea. Even when scalded slightly, this is delicious.
Over the past few days I’ve really gotten into cold-steeping my tea: leaving a bottle of water with tea leaves in the fridge overnight and straining it in the morning so I can take it to work or class with me later. I tried it with this tea but in a hurry, with chilled water in the bottle and the teabag still floating in it- but it’s managed to steep deliciously in barely two hours! With no risk of scalding the tea the elderflower has a chance to really come out over the apricot and tea flavours, and the resulting iced tea is a little dry but very very sweet. This is one of my favourites :D
I don’t have any idea what flavor the elderflower is adding here, but I love the apricot taste! Very light and never bitter. Needs no sweetener. I order 100 bags at a time from the UK. Even with shipping to the US, it’s worth it!
Thought the tea was very relaxing and tasted great!!!!!
This is now my fav Earl Grey tea!
My second best is “Eastern Shore Tea Co”!
Best Green Tea is “Good Earth” – the decaf blend!
Definitely not my kind of tea. It feels like we are drinking home fragrances.
Not the best Earl Grey I’ve had. The bergamot was very weak, but still quite a nice tea
I received this tea as part of a gift set and I am very surprised by it’s quality. Maybe it’s because I’ve been low on black tea lately, but I don’t think so. It has a real tobacco/raisin flavor that I can’t recall tasting in bagged black tea. I made this tea for the purposes of making iced tea, and drank it both hot and iced. It was definitely enjoyable both ways!
I love this tea. The first time I tried it, I hated it… I drink Starbucks chai tea lattes all the time and thought… this just doesn’t taste right. Now I make it with half hot water [leaving it to steep for a few minutes before adding], half whole milk and add 3 level teaspoons of white sugar. I leave the tea bag in the entire time which adds to the flavour. I could drink this all day every day!! Favourite for sure!
still a favorite of mine. added a dash of milk today.
A mild brew with a strong apricot aroma. I could sniff it from the packaging box. I love the sweet fruity and slight floral aroma. Works well for a mild headache. Add brown sugar or honey to taste.
Very mellow mint tea, but its to be expected with the green tea.
Lovely tea, have to find a shop to buy it :))))
I was so disappointed with this tea! I adore vanilla chai, but this was simply anemic – very weak despite me trying longer and longer steepings. I could barely taste the vanilla, and couldn’t taste the spices very well at all – and considering which spices are supposed to be there I was very surprised. I received this as a gift, now I’m wondering if it’s simply an old supply that has lost much of its flavour? Or is this the way it’s supposed to be? I’m not sure how much more I’ll try – maybe mix it with something else.
I haven’t drank this today but I did on sunday morning. Had a really late night on Saturday with lots of beer involved and didn’t wake up feeling too good. I popped one of these into my cup with an extra tea bag of Dilmah’s peppermint tea. The pairing really lifted my spirits immediately.
Because i like strong teas, i had to follow up the rose green tea with this little fella
Starting to get used to the idea of starting my day every morning with this. Perks me up in an instant.
It’s pouring outside. Nothing beats a hot cup of tea while staying dry and cozy indoors.
Found this at a new specialty grocery store today and decided i had to try it.
No notes yet.
I boil my water to the temperature necessary then dumped it into my teapot that already had my infuser in it..let it steep for 5. (a little bit longer than that) and Sprinkled some sugar. Plain and Simple.
