drank Lemon Chamomile by Tetley
220 tasting notes

Even though the flavors are really basic, I really like this combination. Chamomile and lemon work so well together, and I like that the lemon is not overly acidic. It makes a really good iced tea. I steeped the tea bag several times for about 45 seconds each time.

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Fruity, Lemon, Sweet

Preparation

drank Orange Pekoe by Tetley

I went away this weekend and my choices for tea were limited. I had two mugs of this with milk and sugar and it was actually pretty good. I enjoyed it.

This tea tastes weak and watered down to me. Not a great flavour. Average at best.

Flavors: Green

Kristal

Ah yes, I remember this one. It’s alright, nothing special. Does in a pinch.

I went away this weekend and this is what my friends had for tea. Well, this and Tetley Orange Pekoe, so I drank both but this didn’t impress me but you’re totally right Kristal, it does in a pinch! It didn’t help that when I wrote the review, I was tired and grumpy! haha

Kristal

Haha that’ll do it!

I’ve had loose leaf green tea from a local tea shop (International House of Tea) and it still isn’t comparable to regular green tea. The decaffeination process makes it taste different. I really like iHOT’s decaf vanilla sencha though :)

teapartyfortwo

I totally agree with you! Decaf just tastes different! I’m guilty at times of drinking green, white or black tea too late at night and then having trouble sleeping but most of the time I can drink it in the evening and still sleep fine, just lucky I guess! There is one decaf green tea I like fairly well though. Decaffeinated Korakundah Green Tea with Lemongrass
by Celebration Herbals. That’s about the best one I’ve tried so far. I do prefer my tea with the caffeine though! LOL

Kristal

Ooo that one sounds nice too :)

I love green tea but unfortunately I’m sensitive to caffeine so I have to limit myself to 2-3 cups in the morning. Then herbals for the rest of the day.

Sometimes if I drink too much I get the jitters. I try to stick to only 2 cups per day.

This tea has been on my wish list for about a month, and I impulsively bought it after work today along with one other kind. For a bagged tea, this is quite good. It’s start with a mildly sweet honey flavor followed by a herbaceous taste from the lemon balm, lemongrass and other herbs. Quite nice; reminds me of honey vanilla chamomile from Celestial Seasonings except more herbaceous.

Flavors: Herbaceous, Honey, Sweet

drank Bellini by Tetley
338 tasting notes

So I’ve tried making this tea 3 different ways within the last 24h to make iced tea. Here are my results:

Attempt 1: 5 tea bags in 2L pitcher, cold brewed for about 20h. Result: very faint peach/fruity taste with a gross, bitter aftertaste. (possibly from the orange peel since it’s the second ingredient) Quote from the husband “It’s like ‘mmmm, peach!’ but right afterwards: ‘ugh, ass!!’” Dumped the whole pitcher down the drain.

Attempt 2: brewed 1tea bag in 10oz of 200F water for 1 min, placed mug in freezer for 2h to cool down. No bitter aftertaste, but still, not a very strong peach/fruity taste.

Attempt 3: 2L of 175F water, 5 tea bags steeped 5 min then removed. I poured myself half a mug and placed mug in freezer to cool down quickly so I didn’t have to wait as long to try it. Peach/fruity taste is maybe a bit stronger, but still not strong enough. I had this problem with the peach tea from Celestial Seasonings as well. I guess since it doesn’t have hibiscus to give it “umph” it just tastes watery to me.

Overall not a repurchase for me. I will use this tea with Luscious Watermelon from DAVIDs TEA to use it up (faint peach with apple/watermelon taste should be nice) . At least with all my experimenting I used up 11/20 tea bags.

Flavors: Bitter, Peach, Tart

Oh no! This is the one I recommended for you to try. Sorry! I guess I liked the fact that it didn’t have hibiscus

Kristal

haha no worries. Reading the ingredients it honestly sounded great. I think I have bad luck with peach & mango teas. I’m still going to try more Tetley herbal fruit blends for iced tea though :)

apieceofquiche

LOL @ the quote from your husband

Kristal

Haha I know. Luckily since I cold brewed a tablespoon or 2 of Luscious Watermelon in with Attempt #3 it’s quite refreshing and pretty good. No ass taste ;)

It is good, but nothing special. You can taste the bergamot but there isn’t a lot else to the tea.

I find this orange pekoe bitter and overly tannic. The colour is a strong orange and there is a slightly malty flavour and smell to the tea. It isn’t a terrible tea, but I do prefer other brands of orange pekoe.

These are super handy when I do hiking or on trips. I like to but them with ice and very cold water. They are quite sweet due to the amount of sugar in them, more like juice than tea. The flavour is very nice though. Sweet, flavourful, fruity, and the tea is not overly bitter.

Ehh, it was interesting to try, but I wouldn’t buy it again. It has an oily taste to it and tastes a lot like stomach acid to me.

Very cinnamon-y. It makes you feel warm inside on a cold day! It can get a bit spicy if oversteeped and the cinnamon gets sickly sweet, make sure you take the tag bag out after a few minutes instead of leaving it in like I have done a few times.

drank Bellini by Tetley
220 tasting notes

This tea actually tastes a lot like a bellini! You can taste mango and peach which gives it a bit of sweetness, but there is also an acidic hibiscus or rose hip flavour. When steeps it is tangy like a fruit juice, but not sour or bitter. It is AMAZING iced. I like to steep it then freeze it in an ice cube tray. You can put the ice cubes in a strong blender and make a slushy on a hot day.

Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Nectar, Peach, Pineapple, Stonefruits, Sweet, Tangy

You can really taste all the herbs in this blend, it did not have that overpowering menthol flavour that minty teas often have. I like this tea when I am sick or right before bed.

Smells delicious and tastes even better. I use this when I make London fogs because the vanilla and bergamot is so nice together. The vanilla lends a certain sweet and creamy flavour to it, which I love.
