I like trying out the herbal teas that come out around the holidays because I get to enjoy some fun Christmas-y flavors and still fall asleep at a decent hour. The chocolate and peppermint flavors in this tea are nice, but the addition of lavender turned this from ‘just ok’ to something I’ve reached for multiple times over the last few weeks.

I think I’ll even bring a few tea bags of this with me when I go visit my family for Christmas. It’ll be nice for those evenings when I want to stay up and chat and (hopefully) avoid the candy and cookies that will inevitably be out no matter what hour it is. :)
This is a very fruity tea. After drinking the tea I looked up meyer lemon to see what it was and it is a fruit native to China that is thought to be a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. I notice that the ingredients don’t actually have any meyer lemon but it tastes like I imagine a meyer lemon would taste like.
This was very good and I plan to buy some next time I see it in the store.
Flavors: Lemon, Orange
After yesterday’s Twining’s Lemon Ginger I found some of this in my parent’s cupboard and figured I’d do a comparison.
This one is much smoother – the lemon and ginger flavors are combined better compared to the Twinings where the cup starts as a strong lemon and ends with a kick of ginger. Where that one was much more like lemonade, this one is very gingery (maybe even more so than Davids’ Ginger Beer.) However, the ginger isn’t as sharp in this one, a bit tingly and spicy but it’s much more mellow compared to Twinings. When summertime rolls around, I’ll have to cold brew this and see how it turns out.
Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Lemon, Spices
Double Bergamot Earl Gray Black Tea, not surprisingly, smelled and tasted more like the bergamot oil than black tea. My only complaint with this tea was that the bergamot tasted a bit bitter (an orange peel type of bitter) and I am not a fan of bitter.
Many earl grey teas capture the citrus taste without any bitter taste. I did enjoy this a bit but unfortunately not enough to recommend it.
Flavors: Bergamot, Bitter
I was looking for an alternative to hot chocolate with peppermint extract, and came across this one.
There is not much of a chocolate flavour in this tea; the mint is very overpowering. but I like it anyways. if you’re looking for chocolate tones, it’s not there. But if you like mint, you’ll like this one.
Cinnamon, apple and chamomile turned out to be a great flavor combination. This was one of my favorites. The cinnamon apple flavor was definitely the most prominent and the Chamomile was more of a background flavor.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
