I was hoping for a little bit more of something. I’m not exactly sure what I think is missing, though. I think it’s just because I typically am not a big fan of vanilla tea, but had heard such great things about this one I figured if there’s ever going to be a vanilla tea for me, it must be the Copley version. Too bad for me, though I’m sure some of my vanilla tea drinking friends will like it.

Having a small pot of this in my new Tealuxe 2-cup pot. The strainer is awesome, it’s deep enough that the leaves have plenty of space. It also hardly drips at all! Great pot and great cup of tea!
My parents had a spare bag of this in their cupboard (who knows from when), but it was just what I needed!
Hey yall, I’m an aunt! My sister had a baby on Friday, so we had a surprise trip out of town! In all the fun of a new baby, I didn’t get much tea drinking in.
I did, however, have a grande of this at Starbucks on the way out. It was the loose leave/pyramid bag version, and honestly not too bad. Good on Starbucks for making the switch!
I love this even more than I expected!!! It’s clearly earl grey, but it also is richer and more powerful than I would normally expect from any earl grey. I highly recommend it!!
I’m having a cup right now, and don’t really love it or hate it. It’s just a basic black fruity tea. I heard it was a favorite of Princess Diana, so apparently my tea taste is different. I think I’d probably like it more in the summer.
Backlogging from Boston: I was lucky to be able to spend some time in the basement tea bar with a friend and a pot of this tea. It was a lovely time, atmosphere, and pot of tea. Nothing spectacular about the tea, but it was a good, solid oolong.
Backlogging from Boston: I actually had a cup of this at the Tealuxe on Brattle Street! I thought I should consider something else, since I’m so familiar with this one. But I really like it and it seemed fitting to have it there, so I did. And it was totally the right choice.
Backlogging for yesterday: I never liked the hot passion tea at Starbucks before, but now that they have the loose leaf tea bags and I had already had my caffeine allotment, I figured I’d give it a try… and it was GOOD. I’m not sure I’d seek it out, but I’ll definitely keep that as a good nocaf option at Starbucks from here on out!
Oh Steepsterites! I’ve been in Boston, at a conference, with less than reliable internet access for my netbook. So, I’m posting now, and will backlog later.
While there, I had a lovely time drinking tea at Tealuxe. I think I went in the shop(s) about 5 times in 5 days! I got several teas, so I’ll be adding them to my cupboard. I also got a cute little teapot.
Since I’m still restricting caffeine, I’m going to have one new cup a day. Today is Monk’s Blend. It’s great! The vanilla isn’t clear to me, but the flavor has quite a kick. Lovely way to start the day!
hey y’all! I’m in Boston! (Know if any good tea places around here?) I spent the last few days running around trying to get ready, so I didn’t have much tea. However, yesterday I did manage to find this in a pyramid bag at my Starbucks. It actually looked like real tea!! & it was a bit better than average, too. So that’s good news.
I picked up 5 new teas at Tealuxe today… so many new tasting notes to come once I’m back home with my tea supplies!
So, I just couldn’t shake that berry-flavored medicine feeling for the last cup, so I didn’t even finish it before brewing up a cup of this. Yay for something more like tea. I spent a while looking in my cupboard for something decaf, and I realized I’m down to just a little bit of the decaf adagio sampler at home. I’m wondering how long I can draw it out (or if I really can make myself drink the herbals/rooibos samplers in lieu of the decafs).
I just read the other tasting notes for this. Though I didn’t really have a preference for this one way or the other before, now I’m totally ready to be through with this cup! It’s just like berry-flavored medicine!!
Such a lovely, light cup of tea. I love the smell as I open the bag, and I love how the tea (in the tea bags) is actually pretty. I accidentally heated the water too hot, so after swirling the pot around a bit, I poured a cup into a cold mug (everything’s cold around here these days), then to the actual mug with the tea. Success! Great tea without the high temperature.
Also wondered if anyone had seen this in the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/09/business/global/09tea.html?pagewanted=1&emc=eta1 It’s about the business of tea. I checked here, and didn’t see too many reviews for the company it discusses (Dilmah), but still thought you might find it interesting!
I made a pot of this for an afternoon How I Met Your Mother marathon. It was decent, but kindof bland. I really should have used more leaves. I made it to have with soymilk and agave (the pregnancy weight gain has slowed down, so I’m sneaking in calories with tea now)… which only diluted the tea flavor further… Next time: more tea leaves and maybe a longer brewing.
I started the day with a cup of this to see if last night’s PG Tips really was like it or if I was remembering incorrectly. It’s surprisingly similar! This one still holds a special place in my heart, though, so I won’t be replacing it as my standard loose leaf black tea.
backlogging. So, call me crazy, but somehow I had never had this before. I went to a friend’s house last night and had several fun options. This and something from my shopping list, included. The other one required a specific brewing time and temperature (as best I recalled), and I couldn’t believe I still hadn’t had this, so I gave it a go.
Good stuff! It reminded me a lot of my precious Brattle Street Blend, and was a good strength. I think I’m going to get a box of this as my go to tea bag option in the future. (And will probably replace my Twinings with it.)
backlogging. I had a cup of this yesterday. It was actually kindof a sad tea day. I didn’t have much on my calendar, so I assumed I could make cups of tea all day as I cranked out the work in my office. As it turns out, people stopped by for most of the day, so I didn’t get around to having this until 4pm!!
Bah! I had this again today! We had four hours of professional development workshops today (1 of which I taught), so I just needed something big to last as long as it could. This was the solution.
A good cup for the last minute work in the office. Time flew by, and before I knew it, I should have been home 30 minutes ago!!
A decent cup for the afternoon! Had thought it’d be a really productive one, but so far I’ve not made as much progress as I’d hoped.
I had a meeting today in Starbucks (I love that there’s one just downstairs!) and wanted to get something from there since we were taking up their space. So, I went with China Green Tips. I can’t wait until my Starbucks gets the loose leaf bags: http://blogs.starbucks.com/blogs/customer/archive/2009/12/28/full-leaf-tea-lineup.aspx But I’m not sure how soon that will be. :/
It’s a busy day back at work, this is the first cup of tea I’ve had for the entire day! I knew I wanted something black, and had taken most of them home from the office, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this one. Lovely cuppa (though, I see I’m in the minority according to the other tasting notes.:))
