My wife loves peach iced tea (especially the bottled H&S version) so I thought I’d try this out. So far I’ve done this tea hot and my wife and I both enjoy it, we add just a little honey and it’s great. We’re looking forward to the summer to try it iced!
Just purchased 4oz. of this tea and I have no regrets. The lemon in my opinion is subtle or even non-existent but the caramel is noticeable and quite nice.
Wow! Really, really enjoyed this tea. I’m a sucker for citrus, especially grapefruit but I am amazed at how delicate and smooth this tea is. I received this as a free sample (many thanks to Nina’s) and I plan to order more in the near future. 2nd steep was as solid as the first.
Got this tea as a sample with my order from DAVIDsTEA and I’m SO glad I did. This tea is quite minty, but smooth, light, and sweet. I really enjoyed this and plan to get some more the next time I place an order. A pleasant surprise…
Just tried this tea while looking out the window at winter storm Nemo here in New York… I do like mint teas, but what really makes this tea good is the complimenting spicy ingredients. It almost has a chai kinda feel to it and I like that. I’m not sure this will be a “staple” tea for me, but I’m glad I have 50g of it. ;)
Quite good, lots of bergamot in this Earl Grey. I don’t have many decaf teas in the house, but this one is a good staple to have…
I thought I would absolutely love this tea. While it was good, it didn’t quite meet my high expectations. The smell of the dry tea is dominated by chocolate, which has a bit of an artificial aroma. Not too displeasing, but not perfect either.
I was also a bit disappointed that the tea wasn’t a bit spicier. The combination of chili and chai makes me think there will be a bit of heat, but it was quite subtle. The tea improves as it cools a bit IMHO, but I’m not sure I’ll be ordering it again.
Good, not great…
I typically prefer black tea to green tea and I am fairly new to loose teas in general. I do enjoy citrus (orange, lemon, bergamot) in my teas so I figured I’d purchase 25g while at DAVIDsTEA in Quebec City.
I must say I really like it. Perhaps I haven’t liked green tea in the past because I used to steep it with boiling water (whoops!). Following the instructions provided I really enjoyed this light and fragrant tea. Second steep was quite good as well.
I still prefer black tea to green, but I could see myself purchasing this again.
This is a solid, simple chai. I prefer it black but my wife likes it as a latte as well. Great spice for cold-weather months.
For a commercially sold, bagged tea I really like this. The lemongrass and spearmint are balanced very nicely. I always have some of this around the house.
First let me start with this disclaimer: (1) I am new to the world of loose teas (thank you DAVIDsTEA in Quebec City!) and (2) I like black tea and lemon together.
With that said, of the handful of different teas I have tried thus far, this is definitely my favorite. No sweetener required (though a bit of honey or agave is great too). Perhaps this isn’t the most “exciting” tea ever, but I think I’ll always have some around at my house.
