A blend of select Ceylon teas. An earthy/ tobaccoey scent, with some corn silk and floral thrown in. A light citrussy tea, with some earth notes to ground it. Very pleasant
21 Tasting Notes
Ah, a good Yunnan, smelling of old wood and spice, with a fire/toast/grill edge to it. Peppery, but smooth.

This is a lovely green tea that is rich and pungent, but with a sweet floral aroma. This is on top of the richness and makes a lovely cuppa
Too much mint, too little chocolate and weak withal.
I thought this smelled rich and full, like chocolate jumble cookies. There was a nice balance to it, even though it had a bit of Celestial Seasonings Roastaroama to it
That was then, this is now. Wonderful woodsy, spicy smell. Very, very smooth, full tea. Some spice, some wood, some fine tobacco. Chocolate hint, but not in the cup. If it weren’t for the nuances, this would just slip down almost without swallowing. Very tasty and yes, good with chocolate – Lindt’s Dark with Sea Salt.
Sweet, delicate, floral, a nice lingering taste.
I think this year’s blend must be better than last year’s because the ol’ clove hater could hardly taste it here, just enough. I found it to be sweet, pumpkinny, spicy and altogether pleasant, especially with cream and a little sugar. I brewed it for 4 minutes, perhaps that helped.
Holy Smokes, this will knock your slippers off. Billed as a breakfast tea, they weren’t kidding. I only brewed if for 3.5 minutes, instead of the recommemded 5 and it was super strong. One reviewer said it needed 7 to taste right. Definately a British style tea. In your face, no nuances. Good for those mornings when your brain is in a London fog.
This is billed as a breakfast tea and boy, is it ever. Strong, tannic, very British. Must have cream. Sugar if you like and there you are, in a British kitchen! Not many nuances here and a good bit of tannin
Very nice blend. Two of my favorite scents and flavors. I really like this one
Smells like raisins, flowers, grain and chocolate. Very smooth, dark, heavy, bright with an almost harsh edge, which cream takes care of nicely. Next time I will use a bit more tea and brew it a bit less.
The Monkeys needed more training. Dry it has a lovely, almost Yunnan aroma, but the brewed tea is ho-hum. It is smooth and sweet and kind of subtly Yunnan-ish, but it is nothing special
A mere hint of what it says it is. I received this as a sample in a tea order and it was in an open sleeve, so I can’t really judge.
Very smooth, floral, sweet, barest hint of smoke, more wine. Can do multiple infusions.

Umm, tasty, warming, cozy. Enough cinnamon to do all that, then the apples adding to it, with the lemon grass and rosehips adding a little zing. Very nice.
It smelled of wine, really good aged wood, and a touch of smoke. The smoke almost disappears in the tasting, and that is of baked wheat, well-aged red wine barrels, lots of depth and heartiness, although it is quite smooth
To paraphrase an old commercial “Where’s the bergamot” A pleasant lavender tea, but not an earl grey. Phooey If the Earl was as good as the flowers, I would give it high marks, but this should not be labeled as an Earl Grey
Flavor is very faint, almost non-existent. Makes a nice ice tea, by the cold brew method, using a LOT of leaf
