One of the most delicious teas I’ve ever had. I love the marzipan and the creamy texture. It’s sweet but not too sweet. I often want green tea with a little more kick, so the mate is perfect. The coconut is subtle and mixes well with the cherry. I brew it a little on the weaker side so it’s more soothing.
I’ve enjoyed this tea many times.
This tea never disappoints! Mellow and comforting, but also strength with purpose. It’s just good at what it is. It doesn’t need to pretend to be something else.
Great aroma, mild flavor. Goes great with plain glazed doughnut holes. Or a cloudy, cold, windy fall day. I have both, so the tea is very welcome!
An afternoon lift provided by bergamont and vanilla. Takes away the grey afternoon doldrums which rear their ugly heads.
Gimme sommathat wakeup juice.
When the boiling water hit the leaves the kitchen filled with the scent of bergamot. First taste without milk is very citrusy. Added a dash of milk which smoothed out the rough spots. At first it was too hot to get a full taste, but once it cooled off it definitely has a creamy fullness to it, which I believe is from the tea itself rather than the milk. A healthy amount of bergamot without being too strong. This is the kind of Earl Grey I imagine Picard drinking to help him think. Next time I’ll try my preferred parameters – water a little less than boiling.
Tried it a little hotter than my usual temperature. This preparation brings out a hint of bitterness and spice, which would be welcome on a cold autumn morning. Still pretty mild, which is nice for me. I generally prefer mellow black teas rather than rattle-your-teeth strength. I’m having this in the early afternoon as I settle back into work.
This is a good black tea, but I’ve had more of a “buzz” from this tea. I’ve concluded that I like the C.S. Lewis tea from Tea Embassy better than this.
I’ve tried this several times in the past several days and liked it much more than I did when I first got it. The French Breakfast tea is much more of a favorite, but this has hit spot on several times.
The creaminess of this tea keeps the strawberry from being too sweet. This is a favorite of mine.
The mild flavor is very welcome this morning.
A mild assam. Not too peppery, but with a pleasant warmth. Second steep is pretty decent, too.
A mildly flavored green tea with subtle edges of strawberries.
A mild Earl Grey with a vanilla cream accent. Light bergamont flavor. I suppose I would describe this tea as light or mild all around. Pleasing for when you are looking for a relaxing cup and not a rattle-your-teeth strong cup.

2nd Steep of the Day
Steeped a Pot of Almond Cookie
Great Almond Flavor with a Green Tea Base.
This Makes a Great Sipping while Reading Tea.
The Pot Was Good for 2 Chapters.
Keep on Steepin
A strong aroma, yet quite mild flavor. Smoky, to be sure, but not as “teethrattling” as other Lapsang Souchongs I have tried. An excellent tea for contemplation in the early morning chill as the rest of the world wakes.
I tried this tea yesterday by brewing it in a tisaniere. It was good, but not great. Today, I fired up the Breville and really liked it. The instructions on the package directed me to use two tablespoons of the tea and to brew it at 180. I think the increased amount of tea helped quite a bit from yesterday’s approach, as did the slightly higher temperature than the hot valve on the water container in the office.
I like the viscous feel as I drink the tea. It is a pale yellow color; the flavor and fragrance is delicate and light. I’m getting some of the astringency that I associate with black teas, but not nearly so much. I’m guessing this is even less than some of the oolongs I’ve had.
Today, I like this tea enough that I’d add it to my regular cabinet.
This is okay, but I don’t like it as much as French Breakfast tea.
Good white tea. Maybe the white teas aren’t for me, though, as I missed some of the stronger tastes I’ve gotten used to in the black and oolong teas. I’ll have to try this one again soon!
