Lightly peachy with a roasted finish. Surprisingly good!

Heaven! Oolong and peach are a perfect match.

An acquired taste, but very worth it. Darjeelings have an edge to them that I can’t quite square with, but 1st and 2nd flush varieties are light enough that I can enjoy drinking them.

I think I might begin to agree- “light enough to enjoy”, I think that this tea must be kept far from steeping too long or that ‘edge’ starts to grow to sharp of one.

Curiously fruity when sweetened! This stuff doesn’t last a week when we’ve got it in the house. Beautiful.

It’s astonishing that I love this as much as I do; I’m not usually a big fan of herbals. This makes an excellent morning tea.

This is the highest-quality bagged Earl Grey I’ve ever had. It’s hard to find in the UK, though, and pricy when you do.

This is, by and far, my favorite bagged tea. I think it wins points in the unique taste arena, too; I have a hard time describing it! Vaguely citrusy, but sweet at the same time. Refreshing!

Absolutely stellar: my favorite Ceylon, unless you count Brewhaha’s Rose Tea, which is a Ceylon base. Delicate, honeyed flavor; relatively difficult to over-brew!

Delicate, dinstinctive, and sweet! I like this for a lot of the same reasons I like the lighter, sweeter Assam varieties. Can stand up the adding of milk, but I prefer it without.

Too harsh, and the taste is pretty muddled. The real use for this tea is just to steep a huge Thermos-ful and add milk and lots of sugar (amazing builders’ tea, voilà!) The caffeine kick is admirable. Four cups of this put my heart-rate up alarmingly one night. I didn’t get to sleep for hours.
