I’m a sucker for Earl Grey with added citrus peel, but this one is a bit too bright and lemony and I think it overpowers the bergamot in the tea. It’s still delicious, I just think of it less as an Earl Grey and more as a smooth, citrus-y black tea.

Yum! Tastes like drinking birthday cake. Which is much better for me than actually eating birthday cake. Decaf is a nice touch — I like to have some before bed instead of a snack.

I loved the description for this tea and thought I would love it as I’m a big lemongrass and Thai food fan. Unfortunately, this hits a bit too close to actual Thai food tastes – it was like sipping green curry. It has a very fatty, buttery taste which, combined with the coconut, tastes like coconut milk.

Delicious Earl Grey with a honey/caramel and dried fruit bouquet. And comes in a beautiful tin.

This tea is pretty boring alone (strong black tea finish, high cinnamon spice flavor) but great with milk and sugar if you’re into that kind of thing.

My favorite English Breakfast tea. Full of flavor and the toasty notes make it feel filling, almost as if you’d had it with a pastry.
