Refreshing, but doesn’t hold up against loose leaf teas. It’s worth spending an extra couple of pounds to buy a better quality equivalent.Flavourwise, the additions of tangerine and grapefruit remind me more of a citrus Lady Grey than traditional Earl Grey, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Drank this tea this morning with a splash of grapefruit juice! I very much enjoy this tea. It’s such an easy cup to sip in the morning. Something comfortable and familiar about the tea base. It doesn’t make a bold cup but somehow that works with the lemon overtone. This tea will always be an easy choice for me.
Preparation: Bagged tea. Honey to sweeten. Splash of grapefruit juice. (confession: I left the bag in the cup and drank around it)
Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Lemon, Tea
Now that I have a kettle at work, I can bring better teas to drink during the day. Man, did I ever need a hot cuppa when I walked in this morning, too! The winter wind is enough to take your breath away. This is the first of probably many mugs of tea that I will consume today.
And what a delicious one it is, too! The base is definitely Ceylon, which mingles with the very high quality bergamot oil and gives the liquor the scents of cherry, cranberry, and citrus. I concur with the other reviews— this is a totally different animal than its bagged counterpart by the same company.
Upon sipping… The bergamot is there and is genuine, but does not overpower the cup. I get notes of orange, milk chocolate, and something metallic— iron? That might be due to my use of a metal tea ball infuser. It’s a finely blended and delicate tea, nonetheless. Excellent value for the price.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cherry, Chocolate, Cranberry
I am suprised to see such positive reviews. This tea jsut doesn’t cute it for me, perhaps it requires a smaller amount of water to be brewed, but there was simply not enough taste in the tea to satisfy me. Though I was calling out for more of the strawberry flavours, it just did not deliver. I feel as though I should really enjoy this tea, as I like all of the ingredients. perhaps it comes down to quality, rest assured I will not be buying this any more.
I re-purchased this tea a few weeks ago, not remembering if I liked it or not. And I do. It’s very smoky, “meaty,” and campfire-esq. It would be a great tea for a winter afternoon or while camping.It’s smoky and delightful.
I shared a cup with my Dad, who said that it was “no different than eating burning firewood.” So, yes, it’s an acquired taste.
It took me a few sips to finally decide whether or not it’s right for me, and I’ve decided that it’s a grand tea. I will be buying more from Twinings and other places.
(Side Note: It’s too strong on its own, but I really like it with a dash of cream and a teaspoon of sugar.)
Any suggestions on where I could find a quality Lapsang from, other than Twinings?
Flavors: Campfire, Smoke
As this was a gift from my new boss for Christmas, and it bagged, it was an easy choice for a work tea, and I drank the first of it this morning.
I thought this would be darker, somehow. More intense spices. As it is, it was light, and surprisingly sweet to me.
Enjoyable, but a perfect work tea. I could enjoy the sips I could pay attention to, but didn’t mind igoring it when I had work to do.
There are too many options for this tea on Steepster, so I picked this one to write a note under.
It’s an EG. It’s not the earliest greyiest of earl greys, but it is one. And I took a sip and made the “yuck” face. But now that I’ve adapted to the thought that I’m drinking an earl grey, it’s not bad. I mean, it’s caffeine. It’s warm. It’s citrusy. Yep, it’s tea.
Thanks to whomever sent this over. MissB? Sil? I am so confused about samples at this point…
Last semester, one of my textbooks was about contract and tort law. One of my dogs, no matter where it was in the stack of textbooks, would pull out the contract book and open it and just sorta stand there staring at it. It was always that one particular contract law book. Anyways, my friend is now taking the same program as me but one semester behind so I gave her that particular book. Today, I came upstairs to my dog taking off the shrink wrap of my litigation textbook. I think he found his new favorite subject and I am slightly worried he plans to sue me over giving away the book :P.
Anyways, on to the tea…
For a cranberry/raspberry tea, I am disappointed with the inclusion of the licorice root. That’s a flavor that never sits right with me and here it is contributing its typical cloying sweetness to a tea that should be tart. The start of the sip tastes of hibiscus/rose hip and, for once, I find myself wanting more hibiscus to fight the licorice root that takes over. It just drowns out everything else making this a huge miss for me. Not to mention that it is hard to notice anything that could be considered either of the berries in the title. Luckily, I only picked up the one teabag so I can say hello and goodbye with this one unpleasant cup.
Flavors: Hibiscus, Licorice, Rosehips
