I think I score this tea it as highly as I do because I find it so unexpectedly drinkable. Normally, I dislike Irish Breakfast blends. I often find them too aggressive and too bitter. This is uncommonly smooth and surprisingly pleasant.
30 Tasting Notes
Bland and flat. Tastes like a blend of powdered baby aspirin mixed with tea dust.
I wanted to like this tea, but there’s no pumpkin flavor to it, just spice. Frankly, with milk, it tastes like so-so chai. Which is okay, but not what I was expecting from this tea. I would not buy this tea again.
I know this tea is tremendously popular, but honestly, I think I’m just not a fan of English Breakfast as a blend.
I live in the South. It’s August. Sometimes, you just need a big glass of iced tea (I prefer mine unsweetened). This is not one of those glass-pitcher-garnished-with-mint photo opportunities. This is about heading directly to the refrigerator to quench your thirst after coming in from 90 degree temperatures.
Harney it ain’t, and it doesn’t pretend to be. Of the big bag, always-on-the-grocery-store-shelf teas, I much prefer Tetley to Luzianne or, heaven forbid, Lipton.
This is the best mango tea I’ve ever had. Fortnum and Mason does not skimp on the quality of the black tea, and they are very generous with the mango pieces. My parents very kindly brought this back to me from London, and I will definitely purchase more when I run out.
I like this much better than regular chocolate tea. The hazelnut really seems to enhance the chocolate flavor by providing a nice contrast.
This is almost like drinking chamomile on steroids: it has a surprisingly rich flavor for a tisane. A very pleasant brew.
I absolutely love this tea! It may well be my favorite green tea blend.
I very much wanted to like this tea. It was a special order based on a Teamailer’s recommendation, however, it seems that our tastes diverge on this blend. The smell is overpowering: the fragrance dominated my tea cabinet so badly that I had to seal it in extra Ziploc bags. The flavor is equally intense. I found it too perfume-like for my palate.
A fragrant, opulent tea that’s suitable for serving to company. A dear friend of mine brought this to me from Savannah, and I brewed every leaf.
I like it, but there are other fruit teas I’ve enjoyed more. I feel like the pomegranate overpowers the oolong just a bit. Harney & Sons remains my favorite tea blender, but I wouldn’t consider this to be among their best.
This is an assertive tea that’s perfect for taking the chill off a wintry evening. I find that a good white cheddar makes a nice accompaniment.
This blend can be a little overpowering. Be careful not to oversteep it. I prefer it with milk.
I’ve tried brewing this tea at various temperatures, and I never taste any pear notes; the only thing I’ve ever gotten is vanilla, and that note is fairly weak. Disappointingly woody tea.
I like this tea, but it’s a bit expensive, and there are other teas I’ve enjoyed just as much or more for less than half the cost. I probably would not buy this again. Very aromatic, though.

This tea is such a treat! The smell alone will warm you. Brewed, this tea is a cupful of rich, full coconut flavor. I add just a smidge of sugar and milk to feel like I’ve indulged in dessert.
A very soothing, pleasant tea. I plan to purchase some once I’ve run out of my current supply of chamomile, as I like this better.
This is my very favorite tea blend, ever. I always feel very civilized when drinking it, and it’s definitely the blend I pull out for company.
I love this tea. It’s assertive without being overpowering. For those who like to add milk to their tea, this blend can handle it.

Lady Grey Decaffeinated is my go-to tea. It’s something I can enjoy without feeling like I have to pay attention to every nuance. It isn’t the fanciest thing on my tea shelf, but it’s easy.
