Recent Tasting Notes
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.
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.

A coworker gave me this yesterday, the tea she always drinks when she goes to PF Chang. It came in a tiny little cardboard box! Very cute package design.
The tea is quite good – the peach & apricot really come through. I’m not getting the smokey taste that the package and other people mention, but that’s all right. I’m not sure what effect the safflower & marigold have on it – I’m not sure that I’ve had a tea with them in it before.
I would definitely drink this again. I had it with 2 packets of splenda. The sweet definitely brings out the fruit.
My one gripe, but it’s not specific to this tea, happens with a lot of teabags… that moment when you add the water to the cup and the string and tag get pulled into the cup… grrr!
I enjoyed this tisane. I like the combination of rooibos and honeybush – I think that these two herbs work very well together to bring out the best in each other. The caramel is sweet here but not overdone.

Backlogging. 8 days ago. Friday evening.
The February Backlog: From the 1st to today.
I drank this one in the evening at my parent’s an hour or two after we’d returned from an early dinner that involved a Mahi Mahi BLT, cumber and tomato salad, and two apricot IPAs followed by a short nap.
Second bagged tea of the day yesterday. Definitely peachy. With a bite that is supposed to be ginger and I could identify as ginger, but was also a kind of off ginger taste. Not quite sure how to explain. It wasn’t yucky or anything. Black tea base was a little lighter than the previous tea, but I could still taste it. I cannot remember if I steeped this one for 3 or 4 minutes, but it was one of the two.
Drank when my mom got home. We both had cups of tea. And while studying briefly before dinner, which was thick cut breaded but baked pork chops with grainy mustard, black pepper roasted brussel sprouts, and sweet potato gnocchi with cinnamon and brown sugar browned butter.
Rating this one a 55 (nice bagged tea range 50-60).
This was my first ever Earl Grey Lavender experience. I loved it, but quickly moved up to a lose tea. Great for those who want to try out Earl Grey with Lavender. If I could get it locally, I’d buy a box to keep on hand for if I travel… As Earl Grey – especially with Lavender now – is my all time favorite tea of teas.
I love this tea! It smells heavenly and brews up a nice fruity light cup of tea. I wish it was more available locally. I used to be able to get it at Target but no more. I have ordered it online because I like it so much, but tend to nurse the box along so I don’t run out.
It’s a bagged tea, so I don’t really worry about oversteeping. I just leave the bag in the mug. I don’t even use a teacup for this one.
I love a good spicy chai. The bad news was there wasn’t much spice that I could smell in the loose tea (even if it was in a sachet). This made me a little sad…like I said I love a good spicy tea. More when I’m feeling a bit stuffy.
BUT I was willing to wait to give it some redemption while it steeped. I thought for sure the spices would come out to play then. I was half right. I could smell the cinnamon and ginger and that was about all. Still it was better than nothing, right? Of course right! After the four minutes were up (it was suggested to give this tea 3-4 minutes) I gave it a little stir and took a sip. Everything the package promised was there…but muted. This wasn’t good.
So I added a few shakes of vanilla sugar and a bit of soy milk. Let me tell you those two additions kicked this Chai up! I tasted everything and I couldn’t drink this tea down fast enough after my additions were made!
