Flavourful mild earl grey. Slight bitterness left on back of tongue when unsweetened so I drink it with half a teaspoon of honey to counteract that (I also add milk). Not sure how New Zealand this is tho – package states it’s packed here but from imported ingredients. It’s nice enough that I would buy it again but have plenty of other tea to get through first. Would probably go for Twinings Lady Grey next time.
Brewed, this smells just like a slice of pumpkin pie. And it has decent flavor, considering that it’s a bagged tea. Not very spicy, but a nice cinnamon/clove flavor and I think I’m even getting a bit of pumpkin.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Pumpkin
I picked this up a while ago, because I like black currant flavouring. And although it hasn’t been particularly bad, there’s just been something ‘off’ about it. Maybe it’s something in the artificial flavouriing used. It certainly tastes like the ‘black currant flavour’ I like, but there’s something else that I’m just not liking about it. The ceylon base is nice enough, though.
I don’t know what I’m not liking about this, but. Something metallic, maybe…
I’ve been itching to try this one for a while now. It says on the box that people who like Darjeeling would like it.
It doesn’t taste like Darjeeling to me at all! It has almost a smoky scent, and it has a very milky quality to it. I taste burnt corn and molasses.
Maybe I didn’t brew it correctly? I don’t hate it, it just doesn’t taste like what everyone else says it does, quite.
Flavors: Kettle Corn, Milk, Molasses
The creamy pineapple jumps out to say hello first. It is then followed by the tangy and refreshing grapefruit to cleanse the palate and prepare you for the mellow green tea, mild but enjoyable.
This was the perfect choice for a day where I was too lazy to make loose leaf and wanted something flavoursome without too much intensity or caffeine.
This fruit tea is tangy, the strawberry comes through a little but the mango was nowhere to be found – it was not even in the list of ingredients. I prefer it to the Cranberry/Raspberry one by Twinings. Will try making iced tea with it as it’s probably nicer cold.
Flavors: Strawberry, Tangy

I pretty much only drink this tea when I’m getting sick, am already sick, or want to be utterly lazy and cosy in a way you can be when home sick but minus the headache (bonus!). And the only way I really drink it is with added lemon juice (nothing fancy, just from one of those plastic bottles you buy in the shop) and a decent amount of honey to balance out the lemon. I tend to be decently ‘sensitive’ to ginger, so it often gets too strong for me if I drink a tea plain, and that’s the case with this one too. But with the honey + lemon, it’s just sheer spicy perfection.
I also have a special mug that this tea is supposed to be drunk out of. It has a moon on it. Yup.
