So, I went for tea yesterday with a friend who is also pregnant and the coffee shop has this as their tea line.
This tea was a favourite of mine for a long time. I had a different friend buy me this one years ago and I drank it every night as I worked 4-midnights and it was just a great after dinner wind down kind of a tea. I always loved it. Then I got introduced to the loose-leaf version and I couldn’t be happier as it’s even better than the bagged.
But this tea is very good. It’s nice and smooth. It brings back so many good memories. It was so nice to have again and even though I’m still a fan of loose over bagged, this is a great option when you’re on the go ‘cause flavour-wise it’s very very good. It’s quite similar to loose-leaf. It’s very full of flavour. It’s not lacking in that way at all which can sometimes happen. Definitely recommend this one.
Though slightly watery, as bagged teas tend to be, this isn’t your standard CTC package. Instead of the bitter, short-flavored tea you might expect, you get a fairly well-rounded cup with a lot of chocolate and hints of barky, mossy, decomposing forest underneath. I like to pretend I’m somewhere exotic and completely elsewhere when I drink this tea.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Dirt, Moss
I thought the flavour of this tea was solid. I enjoyed my cup of it thoroughly. I had mine as a London Fog Latte. Really yummy! The only tea my partner will drink and likes is Earl Grey and he wanted me to try it done this way. I’m so glad I did! I’ve never been a huge Earl Grey lover before but done this way, I could drink it every day and it would be a real treat. It was freezing cold outside today and this really did the job of helping me warm up. I look forward to getting another one in the future.
This came in my October Tea Sparrow box. It’s a pretty simple rose flavoured white tea, nice enough but not my favourite rose-y tea by any stretch. I just got a little gram scale for weighing tea, and was amazed that 3 generous teaspoons of this only amounted to 2.8g – so I’m beginning to see why Tea Sparrow recommends 1 tbsp per cup!
This is by no means a bad tea, it just isn’t anything particularly special. It is an extremely floral tea, which you would expect with a name like white rose. It brews a light golden color and tastes like roses. If you enjoy rose milk or anything of the sort, there is a probability you will like this. I do wish it was a bit more full-bodied, there are plenty of blending agents that could boost this tea’s flavor and give it a more well-rounded experience.
This one isn’t really working for me. Having just come back from Poland I’ve had a lot of beets and cabbage recently so I’m very familiar with the taste of both, and despite how dark red this brews up the taste of it is mostly cabbage. It’s oddly sweet, but not in a way that reminds me of beet flavor—beets are just about my favorite vegetable and I would have loved to find more of them in here. Instead it’s reminiscent of cooked cabbage, but not balanced enough with salt or other flavors to be appetizing. The consistency is watery like the other savory teas, but in this case I find it more unpleasant than I found the others. I’ll be giving it a pass.
Standard Jasmine green tea. nothing special. I was cleaning out tea bags to give to a friend since I rarely/if ever use tea bags anymore and I thought I would try a few again before I passed them along just to make sure. I’m torn. Do I give It away or keep it? It’s not bad. I just love the flavor and smell of a strong jasmine. Think I’ll give it away. It’s a light scent. Nothing wrong with the taste. it’s just not special. And I’m sure I have other great choices to pick from so this one would get skipped over a lot.
What a weird and interesting tea. The last savory tea I tried was a lot like soup, and I’d say this is even more so. There’s a feeling of a thin tomato soup, maybe with some cucumber too, herbed and spiced and then packaged in a teabag. It’s definitely not bad and in fact I think it’s very drinkable, but you’d have to be in a certain mood for it.
Flavors: Cucumber, Mint, Pepper, Salt, Vegetables

I’ve been spoiled by excellent shou pu’erh. This shou is pretty weak, but its notes – coffee, damp earth – go well with the chocolate flavoring, which itself is good as far as bagged tea goes. Makes a comforting cup on a cold autumn day.
After a chaotic morning and early afternoon of middle school, I popped down to the lounge to fix a big mug of this to regroup with because genmaicha equals comfort in my little corner of the tea world, and I’m trying to use up the last few bags of this while I wait for my Harney order. It’s not the very best genmaicha I’ve ever had, but I think it’s decent for a bagged variety, and it is very forgiving on long steeps. I haven’t ever had it go bitter on me.
As far as bagged Earl Grey goes, this is a very good one. The bergamot is subtle but enjoyable, with no oils floating to the top as there may be in stronger blends—I think this is due to the aging process they describe. The tea base itself is quite mellow and smooth, not knock-your-socks-off as others of this kind can be. I only had a sample of this, but I would be happy to have it on hand for busy days, it’s definitely above average in the bagged black tea department.
Ummm…..I am most certainly not ready for pu-erhs I guess. Dry—this smelled exactly like goldfish food to me. Not exactly wonderful. Brewed, it smelled exactly like mud and ash. It tasted pretty ashy and smokey, as well. This was not for me. I’ll definitely try more pu-erhs over time…but probably not for a while and maybe I’ll start with the flavored ones I’ve seen.
Flavors: Fishy, Mud, Smoke
Well goodbye savory teas – this was the last one given to me by Cameron B. and now I am out. I actually enjoyed them all a lot more than I ever expected to. I may look into buying them; I wouldn’t mind having more of the Tomato Mint around! That was probably my favourite out of them all.
This was definitely, in my opinion, the mildest out of all the flavours. Mostly, it was broccoli and onion but in a much gentler way than one would think those flavour could come across. Decent and enjoyable; probably somewhere “in the middle” of all the ones I tried as there were far better, and far worse.
