Lifting the leaves out of its packaging was probably the highlight of this cup. Dainty flowers laced with a hint of bergamot and greener leaves. However, in drinking this tea you’re left with a neither here-nor-there feeling. Not enough “Earl Greyness” to be a good Earl Grey, and not enough floral aroma after brewing. Not a bad cup, mind you, but it left me in want of something stronger or more well balanced.

Everything an Early Grey should be — creamy with a hint of bergamot and a smooth finish. Delicious!

I’m partial to oolongs of Chinese origin, especially Taiwanese, but I’ll be damned if I don’t say that this is one of the best oolongs I’ve ever had. Great brew with a light gold color and a baby-bear (juuuust right) amount of peachy flavor.

Surprisingly good tea from the kitchen at work! Smooth on the palette and a rounded vegetal flavor.

Yes, this one is a lovely surprise. My local Starbucks no longer stocks it, but I have this one whenever I see it.

This came in a Kusmi Tea boxed sampler and it’s definitely become one of my favorites. Great tea with a hint of spice and a sweet finishing note.

Nice aroma but… weak. weak. weak tea.
