Super coconut-y and delicious! The black tea is mild and the scent and taste of coconut really comes through.

I’m having my favorite this morning, but it’s with the horror of realizing I’m almost out. I MUST ORDER MORE. I think I let it steep for too long. Anything past three minutes and it gets bitter, even with the sugar, but if you steep it just right, it tastes like rainbows and magic.

Still so good. Much better than a lot of other “strawberry” black tea blends I’ve had. This one doesn’t really over-steep and never gets sour.

I like it, but it’s not my favorite. I haven’t tried it with milk and sugar yet. It smells amazing, but the quality of the black tea isn’t as amazing.

I’m never sure what to call the fruit in this tea, but it’s something tropical. Maybe guava. I don’t know, but it’s delicious.

I have very little new to say about it, except that it is my favorite forever and ever, amen. Strawberries and vanilla and something unnameable.

I was drinking this today as well ( nothing new to comment, just a big favorite) and playing around with the tin. There are these teeny tiny little brown sticks, not cinnamon exactly but almost like something similar. I really wish I knew what they use on this. Not that it would change the magic.

This is just such a perfect morning tea, especially on cold foggy mornings. It’s milder than other earl greys, which makes me like it more. I could especially taste the vanilla this morning.

This is one of my favorite Earl Grey variations, and it’s perfect for mornings. It’s mild-tasting but smells fairly sharp.

I made this iced today (93 degrees in October? WTF Los Angeles), and it was great. Like drinking cold roses.

I really like this tea. It’s definitely a sort of variation on Earl Grey, you can taste the bergamot-citrusiness of it more strongly than most Earl Grey, so I like it best in the morning for the bright smell and taste.

Profile

Bio

I became a fan of tea in 2001 when I started frequenting Savoure in Eugene, OR. It has since closed, and I mourn it.

While visiting France, I did not buy any souvenirs, but I did manage to spend a small fortune at Mariage Frères. Me and my 500g of Marco Polo are very happy together, thank you.

My favorites are flavored black teas, and I like them with milk and sugar. That is not to say that I don’t also enjoy a good green, oolong, or rooibos, especially when they’re high quality. I’m not a huge fan of white, but sometimes one comes along that rocks my tastebuds. I like herbal/tisanes, but I confess that in my head I don’t completely consider them tea, and I usually only dig them out if I’m sick.
