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.

Don’t you find it gets extremely bitter when you steep it that long? I need to find a way to enjoy this tea that’s not just iced!

I don’t, but I also steep my tea quite long! I did steep it for 4 minutes a few days ago, and threw in a lemon slice for half a minute, which seemed to up the lemon?

I usually steep 1 minute with extra leaves then pour it over ice. I’ll do that now, and compare a longer steeped hot cup. I’m curious as I haven’t had this in at least a couple months!

I’m actually not a huge fan of iced teas, but I think I’m going to try it with this one!

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!
