drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

This time, I brewed up equal parts of this and lavender and got a rather lovely result. I wonder if I’m simply not a fan of bergamot and need something — anything — to disguise that particular flavor?

Earl Grey is one of the few teas that I just can’t stomach. I’ve tried everything (and anything) to mask the flavor, or complement it. Bergamot is a tough one. But I’d try a vanilla tea with it. I do enjoy earl grey creme. Or maybe a honeyed almond flavor?

Would you believe I don’t own any vanilla tea whatsoever? But that does sound like a tasty combo, I’ll definitely try it out when I do! On the almond note, I do enjoy this EG combined with SpecialTea’s almond cookie (although really, I enjoy ANYTHING combined with SpecialTea’s almond cookie).

I honestly can’t imagine anybody from Celestial Seasonings drinking this and saying “Yep, that’s tasty! Let’s make people pay for it!”

I’m not sure how energizing this is, but the mint and cinnamon make a tasty combo! (There are other things in this, too, but those are the noticeable ones.)

drank Enchanted Forest by Joy's Teaspoon
1103 tasting notes

The first of the samples I just got from Joy’s Teaspoon!

Even dry, this tea has a lot going on: lots of small green leaves with liberal sprinkles of red and blue. And the ALMONDS, oh dear, the almonds. It reminded me of sniffing pure almond extract! I love almonds, mind you, but it was a little much and I wonder what the smell would be like if the almond didn’t overpower everything else.

The taste is also mostly almond, but it doesn’t completely overwhelm the rest of the flavors. I notice a light flowery taste and some kind of berry (although given that there’s no mention of berries on the ingredient list, I assume that’s an illusion). There’s a pleasant light sweetness to it as well, and I feel no need to add anything else to make it sweeter.

My sample will make another cup or two, so I’m going to hold off on giving this a number rating until I’m out of it.

Quick summary of ratings:

90s: Outstanding, I always want to have some of this on hand (though I really can’t afford having all of my favorite all of the time, haha)!
80s: Very good, there are some minor improvements I would make but overall I love it.
70s: Good, I might buy myself more of this someday but it’s not a priority.
60s: All right, I’m glad I got to give this a try but when it’s gone it’s gone.
50s: Not so great, I can drink this when I just really want tea.
40s and below: Various levels of dislike to hate. It just depends on how gross I think it is.
