So far this is my fave tea from The TEA NATION! Good tasting black in a bag with just the right amount of Pom flavoring. Also very good iced!

CRAZY DAY…don’t have much time to write…but…wanted to log…this smells WONDERFUL out of the package! It does lose much of the aroma once steeped, however. HOT is ok but very mellow…COLD seems to bring out the flavors more. This is fairly good! I prefer this one COLD.

I’m a fan of Earl Grey tea. I didn’t use to be. But after trying Earl Grey from Tazo, I was hooked. I found this brand of Earl Grey, and was pleasantly happy with it. Now, it’s not Tazo, but it is good. It’s a black tea, so I can drink it in the morning, and all day long, for a little pick-me-up. Enjoyable.

Before steeping – smells like Vanilla and Almond…more Almond than Vanilla
After steeping – smells like both Vanilla and Almond – about equally.
Color is dark brown
Taste -
This one really surprised me. Just when I think I have The Tea Nation figured out…they throw me a curve! This is a nicely flavored black tea…VERY smooth! The Vanilla and Almond are both present when it comes to taste – I think there maybe a little more vanilla than Almond. Smooth all the way thru the sip on to the aftertaste! Nice Flavored Black for the morning!

Backlogging – weekend

Continued with this over the weekend…3 more cups worth

Green Tea tasting with more ginger than peach. Fairly good. Glad it’s ICED TEA in this case.

Bagged version…

Slightly scented with pom…nom,nom,nom…

It ‘brews’ to a color that is a minty-looking-green that then turns to a more pale olive green color.

It’s a stronger bagged green…with a hint of fruit! Not bad! :)

I sent you the Wuyi Shan and included a Pomegranate Green as well. I think you will like this one – it has a LOT of aroma!

I made a large pitcher of this the other night and forgot to log. I know I cheated and iced a cup before the brewing was done…it was a little bit on the light side but you can still pick up on the blueberry but still know it’s a black tea too. LOVE the aroma…even iced!

Had a 2nd Cup and it was a little stronger. Stay Tuned for more updates on this one…

This is gently scented Cranberry and Green Tea. The color post infusion is a light brownish-green color. It’s a little more cranberry tasting than green tea tasting but it’s a good pairing of flavors, too! It’s not overly strong in scent or taste but the taste is yummy. I like this one!

This one is much better in imho than their Earl Grey. It’s a VERY strong white tea taste with a middle of the road-type blueberry flavor. The aroma prior to steep is lovely. Not bad for a bagged tea. The post-steep color of the liquid is a vibrant yellow.

Not really a fan of this…all I can taste is a bitter bergamot. I know some earl grey fans like that type of thing so I am going going to score like I would if I couldn’t finish the cup but I am not going to go real high either.

I had a cup of this earlier. A good light white tea with a medium mango taste. I think this is a good tea.

Finally had a chance to try this tea. Has a pleasant floral aroma and initially gave off a strong bergamot scent. Not to worry though this tea is very pleasant. The bergamot is spot on and the ceylon black tea is light and flavorful without being bitter or overpowering. I am more familiar with Twinings earl grey and had been looking for a replacement when my local market stopped carrying Twinings…well I must admit The Tea Nation’s Earl Grey fits the bill…mimics Twinings pleasant flavor almost perfectly. I had also tried Stash teas as a replacement however I was nowhere near as impressed by Stash as I am The Tea Nation. The Tea Nation is a relatively new company to the US though they have been marketing tea in Sri Lanka for sometime. After having tried this tea I feel quite comfortable recommending this tea to anyone. So if anyone has seen this tea and wondered… i suggest go ahead try a cuppa you won’t be disappointed!

I had this earlier. This is a teabag. Nice tasting white tea with a medium mango taste. I think this is pretty good.
