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.
I wasn’t expecting too much. I found a box of this at TJ Maxx and decided to give it a try. I really like this. It’s incredibly smooth and the blackberry and jasmine mingle together nicely. I may have to try and find more of this once I’m done with the box.
A refreshing mint tea, with hints of spearmint. I find it interesting that this is called “Southern Mint” since in the south they add sweetener to mint teas and I don’t think this one would be as good with sweetener mixed in.
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.

This was another of the samples I received, and I’ve been surprised at how much I enjoy it as an iced tea. I made a very small batch up and took it to school in a water bottle. It’s nice and subtle, a smooth white with just a hint of fresh pear in the aftertaste.
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.
I bought a sampler of Revolution Tea at World Market. This bagged tea is pleasant but not exactly something I’d go out of my way to purchase. I taste tropical fruits but it doesn’t seem to give me a single obvious note. I managed to get two steepings out of my bag.
The least favorite of The Revolution tea brand
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
I have to agree with the other person who said it is a plain old tea… this about sums it up. I was disappointed with this tea after loving Revolution’s tropical green. This is… okay. Giving me some caffeine, which is much needed. My extra tea drinking has been leading to me staying up much later than usual — I need to have a cut-off point in the early afternoon, but for now at work in the morning I need a strong black tea.
I came back to this tea after letting it cool down a bit and found the flavor to be much improved. It’s still plain old black tea, though! Good in a pinch, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it. If you enjoy mild English breakfasts give it a go.
After lunch tea — I thought I’d revisit this since I had a HUGE vegetarian burrito for lunch and maybe something with ginger would be good. This still tastes like a huge bunch of fake peach with hardly any ginger detectable. I’m still not a big fan as you may be able to ascertain.
Yum! I was pleasantly surprised with this tea. The dragonwell and the fruit balance each other out nicely. I loved the packaging too (I got this in a sample pack).
I have to be blatantly honest and say that I don’t usually like green tea, except that my brother has been on me lately to start drinking it because it’s supposedly so good for you. I stumbled across this while I was on the hunt for groceries and thought I might give it a try. After all, chocolate is definitely a good incentive to get me to drink something.
But I have to admit, I don’t really taste the chocolate in this tea. I can smell it faintly in the dry mix, but that’s it. Surprisingly, I actually like this tea despite that fact. I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s the combination of the citrus with the green tea that makes it easier for me to drink. But don’t let that fool you into thinking I’m only tolerating the flavor. It’s a soothing fix in the middle of the work day when I just need an easy pick-me-up and my other teas will take too long to brew.
I’ll have to go somewhere else for my chocolate fix though. Sad day. =(
A very pleasant green tea. It has a fresh, lush flavor … leafy, vegetative, crisp, and clean. The tea becomes smoother as you drink it … it starts out very vegetative, and by mid-cup, I noticed that the flavors became smoother as if they were melding together and becoming more unified. Sweet and agreeable.

Oops! Forgot to log this one until now…backlog-a-thon, folks!
See other notes. Gets a tad bitter if over steeped.
Pretty good cold, too!
