This may be the best bagged Earl Grey tea I’ve ever tried! The bergamot flavor is bold without being overpowering and the black tea base is robust and super smooth. I almost always take Earl Grey with milk, but this one was lovely with nothing added: plenty of flavor, but no bitterness or astringency. I may have to pick some of this up when I finish off my Republic of Tea Earl Greyer, because I like this one even better and it’s about half the price!
Flavors: Bergamot, Smooth
I got a massage this morning which was amazing and saw that the Massage Envy location I was at had these teabags. Cranberry Pomegranate is one of my favorite flavor combinations in other companies so I decided to pick one up and take it home to review it.
First, upon opening the packet it smells hopeful. However, it does not smell like pomegranate or cranberry at all. Instead it smells of blueberries. It’s almost like Teavanas blueberry pineapple in smell… I wonder if it will taste as such? This is ironic because it is a mix of rooibos, hibiscus, and cranberry and pomegranate flavorings so why would it be giving off that aroma? I do not know.
After steeping it I was very disappointed. It wasn’t the worst thing to ever grace the planet but it was not close to great either. I was a cup of blaaaaaaaaaaaaah and didn’t really taste of anything remote to cranberry/pomegranate.
Oh well, I have more teas to love.
Taking down our Christmas decorations this morning (finally), and thought this would be appropriate.
I’ve been spoiled by loose leaf tea. The CTC method produces a taste I just can’t really compare to other teas. It’s its own flavor, I suppose. Nice in a pinch/busy morning where I’m bustling about, passing by my tea cup every five minutes for a quick sip.
When people tell me they “don’t like tea,” this is the tea I hold responsible. It’s pretty much every hot or iced tea you ever got at an Ihop or Sherri’s. Bitter, boring, only palatable doused with tons of milk and/or sugar, and unsatisfying. It’s also EVERYWHERE, so it’s probably the flavor that springs to mind when most people think “tea.” Which is sad, because if there wasn’t more out there, none of us would be tea lovers.
Making it through a rough day at the office with a cold by drinking lots of tea. This one has a strong ginger aroma and flavor; maybe if I weren’t sick I’d be picking up the lemon too. On a normal day, this blend would probably be too spicy for my tastes. As it is, I appreciate a flavor strong enough to cut through the sickness and the ginger actually seems to be helping a bit with my congestion.
Flavors: Ginger, Spicy
Honeybush has a very rooibos quality to it. This tea smells sweet and has a honey-esq profile. The flavor is smooth and mildly sweet.
I figured that it’d be a great cup to have, with a book in hand, after a long day with cranky students due to the inability to have a snow day. It is definitely a good tea to have to relax with before bed.
(Side Note: I’d pair this with pastries and chocolates. It’s swell with a smidgen of cream.)
Flavors: Honey, Smooth, Sweet
I’ve been drinking this one pretty steadily in the evenings. It’s a good choice for the end of the day. It’s affordable, convenient, easy to find in the grocery store, and it’s pretty tasty. I got back from supper with friends early enough to finally tidy the kitchen. I have a ton of other cleaning to get done, but somehow, just being able to see the kitchen counters helps me relax. Since I was almost uncomfortably full from supper (and a pitcher of margaritas—which I shared with 2 other gals!) I decided to sit with this tea while I knitted a couple of rows. It’s a good way to end a stressful day.
My tummy is a little unhappy today (I should NOT have eaten lunch a the mall. I know better), so I’ve had a couple of cups of this today. It might not be a cure, but it can’t hurt. Peppermint tea should always be in the tea chest, and this one is as good as any bagged tea and better than some.
Is it WRONG that I like bagged tea? I mean, a lot of bagged teas are not as high a quality as loose leaf, but it’s so darned convenient.
I’m out of her peppermint tea. I really like DAVID’s Peppermint Amore, but as I said, I’m out of peppermint tea. I was at the store today and this was the only peppermint I saw there. Not too surprising. The grocery store here in West Fargo North Dakota USA doesn’t carry a wide variety of tea, and we have no tea store.
Anyway, I like to keep peppermint tea on hand, so I picked this one up. (Hush! I know, I’m on a tea diet and trying to get down to only twenty teas in my drawer, but peppermint tea is a requirement) A bagged tea isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s actually quite convenient. This tea isn’t bad at all. When I first opened the wrapper around the bag I got a tiny hint of menthol. You know, that cool sensation of mint or eucalyptus. I get it again, just a hint, when I drink it. After this box is gone, it may find its way back into the tea stash.
The first few sips of this are so strange.
Something tastes artificial, but I think that may be the truly odd mix of teas in here and how they meld.
Definitely also caramel notes. Fake ones, but they are there.
Also something smoky and I’m not sure which tea the smoke belongs to.
Things get less overwhelmingly strange as the cup cools. Thankfully.
Overall a very interesting cup, but not something I’d want to seek out more of. My friend gave me two more bags… I’m not sure what to do with em!
I really like this tea because it smells lovely of vanilla and black tea. The taste if brewed too long is a bit astringent. But when brewed correctly it tastes like black tea with a hint of vanilla. I feel like adding a bit of milk and sugar/honey helps bring out the vanilla taste a bit. This is one of my favorite teas to have as a latte.
Flavors: Astringent, Vanilla
I gave this to my Mother for Christmas. We sampled it together. It tasted very strongly of peppermint, I did not taste any of the ginger. It had a light white tea flavour. Honestly mostly the flavour was peppermint. I would drink it again as I prefer it over straight peppermint tea (a favourite of my Mother), but I would not buy it for myself.
This tea is very delicious to me. I discovered it at the start of December and it has accompanied for most of this month. At first I was steeping it strong and adding a hefty amount of coconut milk and coconut sugar (which is delicious, but I am trying to get away from adding milk and sugar to my teas – it is a bad habit and comfort food from childhood). I have been steeping this plain black and I still love it. I find it very earthy and lovely.
Flavors: Earth, Green
