This is growing on me. It does have a nice mouthfeel especially if I go heavy on the leaf.

Getting a lot of creamy mouthfeel from this today, and a lot of bright flavors.
No notes yet.
Love this tea. having a MEH kind of day, so I wanted to cheer myself up. This is helping.
Try as I may, I never seem to be able to taste that citrus-y flavor I was promised. Also, to me at least, the bergamot makes this tea smell like soap or cleaning product. That being said, the tea itself tastes okay and it doesn’t smell as soapy as it cools. I probably won’t buy this again, though. No offense to people who like Earl Grey.
Backlogging I got this tea sample from TeaEqualsBliss thank you so much! This mainly smells like peach. The taste is a good medium strength sort of juicy natural tasting peach with abit of ginger thats not over the top and a light plesant white tea. I think this is a great peach white tea the perfect amount of peach taste for me. Thank you so much for letting me try this I am very thankful.
Backlogging. I got this in a swap from TeaEqualsBliss with a nice assortment of tea. Thank you very much. This tastes like passionfruit with abit of tartness and a little bit of mango and peach with the honeybush/roobios mix. This is pretty good even though I am not sure about red roobios its tolerable in here with the fruit being stronger. I drunk this lukewarm but I think this would be great cold.
After drinking my cup of Raspberry Lychee tea at Pickwick, I chose a pot of this Grand Earl Grey to have with our meal. They had a delicious array of sandwiches, and the girls and I decided to split three sandwiches three ways. My favorite was a Turkey and Provolone on Marbled Rye with Raspberry Honey Mustard. Wow was it a great sandwich.
The grand earl grey was a nice pot to sip on while enjoying our meal. It had quite a smoky aftertaste, which was not something I expected. I haven’t had a smoky earl before.
We ordered chocolate cherry scones for dessert, served with raspberry jam and clotted cream. OMG….this was the perfect tea with such a sweet dessert. I love how Earl seems to go with just about everything. I may have to pick up some of this, it is so different from other teas I have in my cupboard!
Two co workers and I decided to go out for afternoon tea today at the Pickwick Society tearoom after work today. We started by each choosing a dainty cup (china tea cup) of tea we wanted to enjoy. They the full line of Octavia teas. After smelling several samples, I decided on this tea. I love the ripe, tart berry and sweet lychee fruit aroma and I needed the black tea base to pick me up. Once they brought the tea out to me in a pretty white with pink roses tea cup and saucer, I let it steep for four minutes. The brewed tea had a highly floral scent. Maybe a hint of jasmine? I loved how the sweet lychee hit my tongue first and the berry in the end of the sip. This was devine. I bet it would be great iced as well!
VERY Strong today…Great!
Had two cups of this so far today! Lovely Black tea and floral, vanilla, caramel combo! Ahhhh!
Another SIPDOWN for today! BUT…I will miss this one!!! Sigh…
Upping the rating! This has a lot to it but it all works and I can pick out each ingredient but they all work really well together. Nothing is over powering the others. This time around I can identify the apple which I couldn’t do during my first cuppa. The chocolate is very nice and I swear I can taste orange in there…maybe it’s just ‘leftover’ from my holiday Orange Chocolate phase…LOVE Orange Chocolate! YUM! Anyhow…the Vanilla is really smooth and yummy in this and the rooibos is a little lighter than most but still stands its ground. The mint is wonderful! Gentle but terrific! LOVE THIS!
SIPDOWN #2 for the day! This one will be missed! I’m not much for New Years Resolutions but I think I might add Octavia AND Bird Pick as TWO Tea Companies I hope to place orders with in the new year!
Honey, Berries, White Tea…very nice!
The taste is a bit on the lighter-side. If you are looking for a more intense flavor I suggest doubling the amount and shortening the time by a little! The Raspberry really came out when I attempted this!
Sipping a small cup before sending the rest to Ashley…
Remains a lovely, fragrant brew. Perfect first thing in the morning.
Finishing off this sampler…it’s an absolutely grand mix of hibiscus, rooibos, and peach. I’ll definitely be getting a big tin of this come summer…it’ll be fantastic iced!!
I’ve been craving chai all day, ever since I finished off the gingerbread chai from 52teas. This one is very nice, and it’s caffeine free! I’m finishing up this sample with a big pot. It is very cinnamony, but if you like that, it’s wonderful!
Finished the last cup of this sample. Not quite as bitter this time around, but it’s not improved enough for me to bump the rating up any. But it’s another sample sipped down!
Finishing up the sample that I had of this. Wasn’t quite enough for a full pot, but it works really well regardless and is delicious. Hopefully it’ll keep me calm around the family this afternoon. Oh, sometimes the holidays aren’t worth the trouble. Perhaps I’ll go to a beach next year and avoid all of it!!
I’m having one last cup of this before sending the rest to Ashley. I have been throwing together a Mystery Box for her for quite some time and it’s taken me way too long so I am adding more to the package! I know by saying this on here this specific one will not be much of a mystery but there will be plenty of others in there as well!
This has a hint of hibiscus in it…not much more than that…thankfully. This is the right amount of hibiscus for me!
I want to say the Peach is a little bit more heavy on the flavoring than the other ingredients in here but not by much…all of the flavors seem to work really well with each other! VERY NICE!
The color is a golden red brown with emphasis on the brown. Almost like a translucent brick red.
I love the smell of this tea. You can really smell the lychee and the raspberry, but not the black tea all that much. The color sort of indicates that it’s not a very strong black tea. Most of the flavor looks like it comes from the fruits while the color comes from the black tea.
The first taste is a strong taste of lychee. The fruit is very strong and is almost over powering to the other two tastes. The black tea is soft and comforting and by far over powers the raspberry. I have always found lychees to be a little sour. What this means is that the tea is a little sour. I want to make it clear that it isn’t bitter though. It is also sweet. The black tea is a little milky to the taste. They have definitely added extra lychee and raspberry taste to the tea. I’m generally not a fan of extracts.
