I was thinking of purchasing this tea, and voila! I found a sample my husband’s cousin gave to me on my wedding day ;). I wasn’t necessarily stressed tonight- just a little tired and quickly grabbed a tea out of the cupboard to bring to my evening shift. I like this tea-no artificialness, and an “earthy” herbal tea taste. It does have a bit of a medicinal taste to it (probably the St. Johns Wort?) but it doesn’t bother me none. I’ll make sure to keep this on hand on those stressful days when I can’t drink a glass of Merlot ;).
Flavors: Lemongrass, Medicinal

First post! Yay me!
I drink my teas black, and sometimes with a brown sugar cube on the side. or with a dash of milk for my beloved OP and EG teas.
I just finshed organizing my tea rack and decided to pour a cup so here is the review:
Steeped Tea’s Egg Noggin’ looks and smells delicious but i’m not sure where the orange peel comes into play.
the taste of the tea is a mild, creamy black tea with a hint of spice.
nothing more, nothing less.
It seems to me that Egg Nogg is a popular taste around the holidays but perhaps it is one that is best left as a Latte or served out of the carton.
I made this last night as an eggnog latte. It was my first eggnog latte with a steeped tea instead of powdered tea, and I was very pleased with the way this worked with the eggnog, Lots of sweet cinnamon, but also a pleasant fruity note, and something – I think the jasmine- to differentiate this from other cinnamony chai kind of teas.
Holding off rating till I’ve had it straight, but I may use this one to finish off the eggnog later.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Sweet
I have to be completely honest…. I only bought this tea because a portion of the sales went to JDRF. Upon first sniff I still wasn’t to sure, I actually left it sit in my travel mug for work for a couple of days until I decided I have had enough moving it around the counter out of my way every time I went to do something in the kitchen. After finally trying it I don’t know why I wanted so long!! Im getting a raspberry taste followed up by a bit of apple and its delicious. I think this one may even make an amazing iced tea or good with a bit of carbonated water. Kind of laughing at myself now that I didn’t try this one sooner. Even the smell of it while it was brewing and drinking it was delicious. Made me think summer isn’t so far away even if it is December lol!
Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Raspberry, Summer
Considering how much I love and now miss Honeybush Lemon Ginger from DAVID’s tea, I was quite excited when I found this tea. Unfortunately, there’s just something missing in this tea-it’s too plain. It kind of tastes like a very plain rooibos tea with a hint of citrus. I think if they would have put lemongrass and ginger in this tea it would have been perfect. Unfortunately they didn’t though, so I will just use up my tin and try something else.
This is probably the nicest white tea I have had yet (though my exposure to white teas are pretty limited). The scent of the tea in it’s packet is very chocolatey, almost like chocolate raspberry. When brewed, the taste of cherries is most predominant but it is a very light flavour. The chocolate is almost undetectable. It is a very gentle and pleasing cup of tea when brewed properly (make sure the water isn’t too hot). I would recommend this for someone who wants a light, healthy tea which doesn’t taste overly tea-like.
Flavors: Cherry, Chocolate
Wow Lemon!!! I smelled the strawberry or berry first but didn’t expect so much lemon when I took that first sip, not like a bitter or sour lemon but a nice lemon. I had ordered this one about three weeks or so ago and was dying to try it, I had it without the gum balls I am thoroughly impressed but think I may consider using the bubble gum next time or adding a small bit of sugar.
Flavors: Lemon, Strawberry
Okay, so I’ll be honest. I kind of lost this bag of tea in the depths of my cupboard. I don’t even remember if I purchased this two or three years ago. (I’ll guess two?)
So, I know it’s a resteeping kind of tea, which I dig. However, I didn’t have high hopes this morning, since it was opened in the past, and a few weeks ago I had to toss a 25g bag my boyfriend opened last year and that got lost amongst my parent’s coffee supply. I smelled it and all I could smell were the green tea leaves. I decided to steep a cup anyway. I followed the directions, tried a couple sips (no milk, no sweetener), and tossed it.
But! Then I remembered that I wasn’t a fan of the first steep of this tea in the past anyway. Steeps 2-4 were always better. (I tried steeping it a 5th time in the past, but it wasn’t worth it). So, I decided to give it another go. This time I added milk and just a pinch of brown sugar.
OMG. I remember why I love this tea. It has actual pieces of cinnamon and the nutmeg gives it a lovely spicy aroma/taste. The yogurt pieces give it a creaminess.
The one downside I find with this tea is that it has green and black tea leaves. This is why I didn’t rate this tea higher. I’d prefer just the green leaves as I don’t like to drink more than two caffeinated beverages a day, so with my third steeping (added cream for this one), I am deciding if I want to save the leaves for one more morning, or just throw them out at this point.
If you’re going to drink this, watch the steeping time. It’s just 2-3 mins. There aren’t directions on this one for which temperature, so I generally wait a few mins after the tea boils. I haven’t noticed a burnt taste, so I’ll stick with this.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cream, Nutmeg, Tea
