My best friend/roommate here has this tea, and is gracious enough to let me have some whenever I feel like it (lucky, lucky me!!). This is lovely, sweeter tea that I generally have for dessert. Very relaxing blend (the Adagio Cream is one of my go-to teas), the cream balances out the chai nicely. I usually have with one sugar and two milk.
33 Tasting Notes
I figured I would give this tea a shot despite all of the low ratings because I generally prefer cream teas, and I’m quite glad I did! It is a very mellow tea, but pairs well with most food (which I find uncommon). I would still place it slightly below the David’s Cream of Earl Grey (favourite tea of all time), but this is still an excellent tea. I will take it either with one sugar and one milk, or just one milk. Not sure if I would enjoy it black, though.
This is a nice Early Grey. Nothing too spectacular about it, but also nothing particularly bad either.
This has now become one of my staples teas! I find steeping to the midway point makes for a lovely balance between the black tea and the fruity notes. I find a little bit of sugar and two to three drops of milk to be the best combination for me.
I’m not a huge fan of maple, but I ended up with 100g of this. I steeped to the half-way point (I don’t love maple but I also hate bland tea), and added two drops of milk. It tastes like a maple dip from THortons, I’m actually liking it a lot more than I thought I would. Still don’t know if I would drink it all of the time, though.
This is a fantastic lemon tea. The lemon is definitely present but not overpowering, and almost tastes like lemonade (but not quite). I might try it iced as well. I would recommend on steeping the full six minutes, the shorter side tends to make this tea a little bland.
This is a fantastic blend. The citrus is quite strong as soon as you open it (which I like), and is prominent in the taste. I only steeped it for 4 minutes, though I think it could’ve stood a little longer. I had it with one milk. Will add more notes for sugar/steeping time.
I love green apples, so when my friend offered this to me, I jumped at the chance! Very tart and crisp. More to follow
I picked this tea up from Palais de The when I was wondering around Grafton Street. I love really any black tea based Early Grey, so I was very excited for this. I must say, this is not my favourite tea. I think it may have to do with the fact that it has a Yunnan base (I prefere Ceylon or Darjeeling), but I did enjoy the bergamot (you could definitely tell it was there). I’ve had it twice now, and steeped it the full five minutes. I may try 3.5-4 minutes to see how it turns out then.
Because I’ve had a terrible night/day (thank you, roommates), I’ve been drinking boatloads of tea to stay awake. This is usually one of my favourite teas, but I somehow made the perfect cup. It’s like drinking an Earl Grey flavoured cloud. Take that, stupid undergrads!
While I was at home for Christmas, I had this tea every day in the morning. I brought 100g of it back with me, but I can’t have a cup every day if I want it to last! I don’t know why, but this tea is amazing if you have a sore throat. The mint and vanilla make a very relaxing (but still energising) combination, so amazing!!
This is a good, basic vanilla tea. I would have liked for the vanilla taste to be a bit more present, but it’s still a great tea. It’s not overly sweet, and I tried it with one sugar (and one milk). Will add more tasting notes with more cups!
I LOVE this tea!! (I will admit I’m a sucker for anything Earl Grey-related) The berries compliment the bergamot perfectly, and it’s a great tea to have at any time of the day. I’ve found that I prefer it with both milk and a sugar cube, but it is sweet enough on its own (depending on my mood). I would recommend this for anyone who likes Earl Grey, breakfast tea, or anything fruity!
This is a really nice tea! I find the smell to be a tad on the strong side, but it definitely has a more mellow taste to it. It has the perfect amount of red velvet for me! I had a little bit of film on top with the first cup, but less so with the second (I didn’t do anything differently), so I will keep experimenting!
This is an amazing tea!! It smells wonderfully of peppermint, but isn’t overwhelming, and the same goes for taste! My throat has been a little sore and it has been a perfect remedy. I think it would also be a good winter tea, not just for the holidays. I would recommend this to any tea drinker!
I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. The cranberry was definitely present but not overwhelming. I think this would be a perfect tea for the afternoon, when you don’t need quite as much of a punch. I think I’ll also try it with brown sugar!
I tried this while I was in the store, and I was not impressed. I didn’t really like any part of this tea, glad I didn’t buy it before I tried it!
Although I usually only drink black teas, this was a nice change! Very fruity, and very Christmassy! I wouldn’t drink it everyday, but it’s a nice change
I’ve been having at least one cup of this every night before I sleep, and it is incredibly relaxing. I can’t get over how mellow this tea is, no matter how long you steep it for. An excellent blend!
New discovery- this is quite enjoyable when you have a cold. I can’t taste very much, but I can taste the pumpkin (though not quite as fully as normal). It’s a nice alternative to Earl Grey when I’m sick! I did steep it for well over 10 minutes, so that may be why I’m tasting it. Either way, still a lovely tea!

This tea is VERY cinnamony, which I generally like. However, I don’t know if I’m a fan of everything else that is in it. It seems that whatever fruit is “Christmasy” was added. It is by no means unpleasant, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink several cups of it.
The clove is quite strong at first, and the orange peel really comes through on the aftertaste. I’ve only had one cup, so I will add more notes once I’ve done more tastings.
I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. I steeped it for 6 minutes, and still found it quite bland. I kept steeping it for another 3-4 minutes, but probably should have stopped a bit earlier, as I found the tea a little bitter.
I thought there would be more of a chocolate taste, but the hazelnut is excellent. This tea is going to take some experimentation.
This is an excellent alternative to breakfast tea! You can definitely taste the similarities between the Irish Breakfast and Afternoon but this one is a little more mellow. I generally leave the teabag in the entire time I’m drinking a breakfast tea, so I did the same with this tea- great choice!
