Absolutely more honey than lemon flavoring in this. The honey aroma is VERY intense. The honey taste is also strong. The lemon is noticeable but not strong and the green tea flavoring is somewhat lost in the background. This is OK but not very memorable. Then again…I’m usually not into honey flavored teas unless they are incredible remarkable!

Smells like orange and green tea. Tastes like grassy green tea, a little orange, and almost like a gingery type spice. The orange is slight yet pleasant. I think I would like it better without the spices in it and it just being orange flavored green tea. BUT…I do like this one better that most of the Tea Nation Teas overall…so far.

NOTE TO SELF – do NOT over steep this or the spices are hard to handle…eeeeek

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try!

It has a nice aroma – a little soft but smells nicely of cranberry and also has a light, fresh leafy fragrance in the background. It has a good flavor – clean green tea taste, light on the astringency, and a pleasant sweet/tart taste from the cranberry. Nothing overwhelming, a very good, light tasting tea.

I am not sure why I’m having a caffeinated tea at this time of night, but, hopefully I won’t be kept awake since I’ve a lot to do tomorrow!

Very flavorful, tasty, and sweet. I like it.

This smells like pure baby powder…not sure that I like that smell! LOL

The taste is pretty much like that too…I know I don’t like that.

Drinking up the last of this this morning. It’s been an okay green tea, but not one that I’ll run out and get more of anytime soon.

Edited to Ask: I can count this as the first of my Sipdown, right?

I missed something…what is this sipdown!? LOL

Jaime

I know Auggy is doing it, not sure who else…and I think you already have been. It’s working to get your cupboard down to manageable levels. More details at:

I will check it out! Thanks!

Auggy

Hey, I say if it gets finished off, it counts! Yay!
TEB, it’s something takgoti and I started doing since she’s buried in samples. I thought I was, then she told me her sample count….

Jaime

Hmm…I thought I was buried in samples, myself. Just the way you phrased that, I’m thinking I’m probably not.

I’ve been drinking this one a lot here lately…it’s bright but subtle, and a nice waking-up tea.

Accidentally overbrewed this by at least 3 minutes. Surprisingly, it’s still pretty good.

As much tea as I drink, I still am finding teas in my cupboard that I haven’t logged and/or have to add to Steepster. I’ve drank this one quite a few times, and just realized this morning that I haven’t logged it at all.

The papaya and passionfruit flavors are well done: subtle, but authentic, and really enhance the green tea base. The green tea itself has both nutty and grassy notes, with a slightly buttery finish. It’s a bit more astringent than many other green teas I’ve had; I think it adds to the tea rather than detracts. Overall, for being a Wal-mart find, I’m pretty happy with it.

Sipdown! Last of the tin.

I made my first mug of this for relaxation. Now I am making it for a study aid. I’m not sensitive enough to caffeine for this to do anything to me this late at night, but just drinking tea helps me do whatever I am doing.

Tea: when sleepy, it helps to soothe you. When studying, it helps to concentrate you.

Not as flavorful as Twinings Earl Grey, but still pretty good. I might have a sipdown on it tomorrow since I only have two bags left. Or I might do a cold brew experiment. We will see.

Our room now has cable. Dad sent the cable cord to me this week, so I get to decide on whether I want to be sociable or stay in on Dr Who nights now.

Nothing hits the spot like curling up with a fluffy fleece Tinkerbell blanket, a Hello Kitty pillow, your Kindle with the recent time-traveling romance on it, and a good cup of hot tea with a dollop of honey for your sweet tooth.

I am down to this tea after finishing off another box of Twinings Irish Breafast.

I have figured out that I really like this tea with a little bit of milk. It doesn’t overpower the tea and it just rounds out the flavor a bit. I even got my boy to try some and he liked it fairly well. He prefers Numi though.

Hot with milk for lunch. It compliments pulled pork sandwiches pretty well actually.

So, I’m finally getting around to writing about this tea. I find it a very light Earl Grey but I like it a lot better than Stash’s Earl. It is very nice to drink before bed and at any time of the day really. I bet this would taste a lot better if I didn’t have to estimate steeping time but I have been rushing at college recently. Maybe next time I’ll be able to slow down and actually enjoy a cup of tea.
