I found this tea by accident. I was staying over my mothers house and finished the tea stash that i had brought. So when i stop at the gas station i decides to buy something hot and found this for $1.99 for the hole box of 20 teas. A deal!
Ive never tried a tea that came in a triangle silk sachets, pretty cool. I’m a sucker for presentation. =D
It was astound by the balance of flavors. This is a very light white tea with a very subtle hint of pear flavor. Definitely will repurchase.
Finally tried this with milk—much better than it is straight up. Some earl greys seem to be fine without milk and some truly need it: this is one of the second type. The milk makes it smoother and cuts the intense herbal taste the lavender can develop. On a side note, I’m pretty sure I oversteep this on a regular basis. Oops.
Very nice afternoon tea with a sweet floral aftertaste. In my opinion there’s nothing better than something floral for calming down.
I received a sample of this with a gluten free box I ordered a while ago. It stands to reason that mint is gluten free, but anyway I digress.
This comes in a pyramid sachet and is 100% peppermint. It’s difficult to rate a thing like that, I mean you either like mint or you don’t. I enjoy it after meal times. I would say that I slightly prefer the peppermint tisanes I’ve tried that grow in the Pacific Northwest – both Silk Road teas and Steven Smith have nice ones. This is a nice strong mint though and tastes nice & fresh.
p.s. also resteeps well
This sat on my desk while the water was boiling, and I have to say the smell – of just the dry tea – completely filled my area. I kept wanting to look around to see who was enjoying some very fresh and juicy-smelling fruit!
I was a little hesitant about the idea of oolong in a teabag, but it seems to have room to expand nicely. While the smell is still very present, the fruitiness is toned down in the actual cup, allowing more of the oolong’s butteriness to come through.
This is a fantastic change to the Teavana sample I grabbed this morning – it’s washing away the melted cinnamon candy flavor of that earlier poor choice and replacing it with something much, much more enjoyable.
Well, this could be better, but it not bad.
I hate that they put Darjeeling into the mix
as that is one of my least favorite teas.
But, this is nice and refreshing.
I enjoy the taste of the black tea mixed with Ceylon
as well as the light flavor of the Bergamot here.
You can definitely smell the lavender before steeping…
very nice…it also lingers on the palate in a lovely way
after the tea is gone.
This cannot match the Creamy Earl Grey From David’s Teas
that Whiskey Buzz sent me,
But for the occasional pick me, it is worth the coins (not expensive)
& on a different tip, the flow through infuser bag is super nice
for a tea bag…allowing the tea leaves to expand nicely.
I received a tea sachet of this tea in one of my Love with Food boxes. I’m always excited when I get tea in one of my foodie boxes, because the only thing better than getting a foodie box in the mail is getting tea in the mail! So, I am doing the happy dance when I get a foodie box WITH tea in it! HAPPINESS!
Overall, this was alright, not my favorite from Revolution, but, it’s certainly tasty. A little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and there is some bitterness to it which I can’t be sure if the bitter tone is from the Sencha or from the Acai … but, it’s not an off-putting taste … it’s a nice contrast to the other flavors.
This is the first lavender earl grey I’ve tried, and I’m impressed. Dry, it smells very strongly of lavender. The brewed tea doesn’t taste as strongly as it smells, but the bergamot is much milder than in some earl greys. That makes it a nice, smooth tea. The aftertaste is my favorite part of it, though—strong, sweet lavender. Delicious!
Not all that thrilling, in my opinion. Tried it hot, and while it smelled and looked nice there wasn’t a whole lot of flavor. Delicate and a little bit sweet and otherwise indistinct. Not enough pear flavor to impress me.
I am chilling the rest of the box for use as iced tea right now, and I suspect it will be much better that way. In general I like white tea better cold.
UPDATE: This tea is much better iced! The flavor is subtle and cold suits it well.
A very refreshing mint tisane. Minty, crisp, minty, flavorful … minty. Did I mention it was minty?
A very fresh and exhilarating cup. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/04/19/southern-mint-herbal-tea-from-revolution-tea/
I think this was the first Earl Grey I ever tried, as well as the first tea I had in a sachet. All these years later, I didn’t think it would live up to the memory. I thought maybe I had built it up in my mind.
I was wrong. This was one of the best lavender variations I’ve tried during my Earl Grey project. There’s no missing the floral note, but while it is unmistakable it is also fresh and subtle.

When Revolution sent me some of their Earl Grey for the Battle of the Earl Greys, they included a whole passel of various single-servings, and I am having a lot of fun sampling through them. This sachet was in a little individually wrapped box. I couldn’t find a suggested steep time on the box or their website, so I went by the steep times other Steepsterites mentioned on here. I started at five minutes, then bumped it up to eight after a quick check-in.
The rooibos is definitely the primary note, although after increasing the steep I am now enjoying the hint of caramel. I did add some raw sugar, but only a teaspoon… and for me that’s showing a lot of restraint! On its own, this blend is so sweet that it doesn’t really need it.
This is one of my favorite teas. The tea base is high quality, a dry and astringent flavor, perhaps from the darjeeling and shui xian combination, and a light roasted flavor from the shui xian as well. The lavender doesn’t dominate but is noticeable, and the earl is just “grey” enough.
I got a Revolution sampler set and I’ve been saving this particular tea for just the right moment. Today I find myself tired and needing a kick of caffeine and also strangely anxious. Earl Grey + Lavender to the rescue! I love the effect of the scent of lavender on my nervous system, I’m hoping that works in tea as well.
This tea smells amazing right out of the box. Yum! I’m already wishing I had more than one bag. When steeped the tea smells more of earl grey than lavender. I only see one little purple flower through the mesh – hopefully there are more inside the bag!
MMMM… this tastes amazing. It’s a little hot, but I’m sipping it anyway. The earl grey is mild and I can taste the subtle floral of the lavender. I’m glad this is a subtle tea, I don’t feel like getting smacked across the face with flavor this morning.
I have 10 more delicious minutes to enjoy this tea and steepster before my students come in. It’s crazy hair day at school today and this first grade teacher has cotton-candy colored hair to celebrate! Oh goodness, they just peeked in the window and saw my crazy hair. So much for a peaceful tea time, hahaha, now they are all crowding around to look.
This tea has a definite calming effect. I don’t know if it’s the slight smell of lavender affecting me or if it’s the brew, but I’ll take it. This is the first Revolution tea where I felt that I would be making a purchase in the future. I’m a big fan of this wonderful tea! It was the perfect first cuppa for me today. <3
