drank Queen Mary Tea by Culinary Teas
21 tasting notes

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

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

drank Peach Apricot Tea by MlesnA

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.

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

drank Lavender Earl Grey by Teas Etc
21 tasting notes

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
