On my fourth cup of this today. I cannot get enough of this flavor, it is incredible. Tastes amazing with a little milk and sweetener (I use Splenda). So so so addicted to this now.

Just tried this one this morning — REALLY good! It’s chocolately and nutty, with a little smokiness in there, and it gives a nice energy kick to boot. I could easily see myself kicking the coffee habit as long as I have this tea around.

Okay, well, I just love Earl Greys, they are probably my favorite teas. And this … oh, man, this is PHENOMENAL. The smell alone is gorgeous, and it just tastes absolutely wonderful. It’s smooth and rich and flavorful and just … the best Earl Grey I’ve ever tasted. I think I’m going to have to buy a whole pound of this once my first 2 oz. run out!

I love English Breakfast tea, it’s the tea that my mom always made me and my sister when we were younger. This brand, however, is not my favorite. It’s not BAD, but I’ve noticed that there really is no room for mistakes when steeping this one — it goes bitter very quickly if you’re not careful. Still, when I want English Breakfast, and this is the only stuff in the cabinet, I won’t say no.

This. Was. Foul. I ended up dumping the thing out, because I could NOT choke it down. Just. Ugh, no, not a good mixture of flavors at ALL. :p

I thought I didn’t like Earl Grey, until I tried this particular brand about a year ago. Turns out, I DO like it! Since then, I’ve discovered that this is not my favorite version of Earl Grey, but it’s pretty good. It’s VERY aromatic, the bergamot smell is strooooong in this one. Which I like, I just kinda wish it had more flavor to match that.

I do not like this one at all. It’s too … cider-y for me. Waaaay too sweet and fruity. Just not my thing. Which is too bad, because it sounds like it should be awesome.

I definitely think this is probably THE best chai tea in bagged form that I’ve had. All the spices are really flavor and aromatic, and this tastes awesome with some milk and honey splashed in it.

Love this in the summertime. I get my chai fix, and it’s cool and refreshing. Delicious. :D

I have no idea how to really describe this, except that I loooooooooooove it. I’m a huge fan of Earl Grey teas, like, all kinds, and this is just like that, but kicked up about a thousand notches. So freaking good.
