I think it tastes like Lemon Chiffon and not Earl Grey. It’s a pleasant tea and one I’m sure others would enjoy, but I like my Earl straight up.

My goodness, this really smells like the real deal and it tastes really good. Wonderful cure for the wintertime blues. Very girly, girly, but not cloying or too sweet. Maybe a spice cookie to offset it.

A really lovely smelling and tasting green tea. Be careful not to over brew. I am drinking it to welcome our new great-niece, Ava Rose, born this morning!

A very nice black with an amazing range of tastes fom earthy to unsweet prune and finishing with a floral. Lighter than expected. Excellent.

This is very well done. A little different for me, as chais go, but I really liked it

Too much lemon peel! Spoiled it. Milk and sugar did not help

There isn’t supposed to be lemon peel in it…

Smells wonderful tastes nicely pineappley while warm, ends up more berry flavored. The liquor starts out bright green then gets muddy, then it is pink. Very odd. You fruity tea people might like it iced. It’s a nice tea.

Wow, your brew sounds a lot more flavorful and colorful than mine! I was afraid to brew it more than the 1 min suggested on the canister lest it get bitter. Maybe I’ll try 2-2 1/2 next time. Mine was certainly not pink or fruity! This is why reviews on Steepster are so interesting – we can have such different experiences with the same tea!

A lovely floral oolong. Second steep even better than first, richer, fuller,etc. Wonderful big leaves. A definite keeper

2 min isn’t long for a 2nd steep…

Carolyn

Does it taste fishy (or crabby)?

Jillian

The name makes me think of a giant, furry crab climbing out of a pot of tea. XD

Marlena

No fishy, no crabby, no seaweed to hide in and no hairs! Great name, though

Carolyn

Interesting.

A really good tea that’s driving me crazy because I can’t quite pin down the smell or taste. But it is very good, with none of the drawbacks one often finds in black teas
