Yuck. Disgusting. I can only taste the stevia. It’s like drinking sugar water with a twist of something vaguely fruity.

PASS. If I want a Sprite, I’ll crack open a can of it. I don’t want my tea to taste like it.

This stuff was so vile I threw it out.

Thank God it wasn’t my cup! I had one sip from my boyfriend’s mug. That was enough. It’s pretty awful.

Finally got my hands on some of this! I’ve been meaning to try it for a long time now. Regular Sleepytime bores me these days. I think I’ve just drunk too much of it. This variation is immediately identifiable because the dry bags smell very strongly of spearmint and just a hint of vanilla, whereas regular Sleepytime bags just smell like chamomile.

Steeped, the tea smells wonderfully of sweet vanilla, chamomile, lemongrass, and spearmint. Sipped, I taste primarily the chamomile, but the vanilla is definitely there, albeit subtly. I’ve had two cups of this tonight. I am enjoying it thoroughly. I think I’ll only buy Vanilla Sleepytime and Sleepytime Extra from now on! No more boring old regular stuff.

Yup, definitely still love this. One of the best vanilla flavored teas I’ve experienced. And it’s a rooibos! Two ordinary flavors come together to become extraordinary. It’s simple, but perfect.

I can’t stress enough how much I love this tea! Lemongrass and green tea were a match made in heaven. The pomegranate almost gives it a cranberry flavor. I love it. Tiesta green blends are the bomb diggity.

drank Earl Grey by Bigelow

I cold-steeped this one at work, and I found it to be even more refreshing than hot. The bergamot presents itself as a sweet and crisp orangey note, and the more earthy and chocolatey notes from the base that I get when it’s been brewed hot are replaced by it. Perfect way to brew this tea for the summer.

drank Lover's Bloom by Primula Tea

I love all of these flowering teas from Primula. I made this one with my boyfriend, and then iced the rest of it and brought it to work the next day. Lovely green tea with jasmine. I don’t really drink it for the flavor, but for the aesthetic experience of watching it steep.

I dug this out of my tea chest. I have to drink it sparingly because there are no places in my home area that I know of that carry it. It’s what I wanted tonight- soothing, aromatic, healthful. It’s only a little sweet, which is good because I dislike overly sweet things. Something about the earthiness of the tulsi and the floral rose just hits all the right notes some nights.

drank Raspberry Royale by Bigelow
319 tasting notes

This is another tea that I found in the breakroom at work today. I’m always hesitant to try berry-flavored black teas, because they tend to be awfully bitter and astringent. This one was actually pretty nice. It didn’t taste like fresh raspberry, so I’m guessing that the flavoring is artificial, but at least it was smooth and not totally overpowering. Am I about to run out and buy a box? No. Will I drink it again during my lunch break at work? Maybe.

drank Nutty Almond Cream by Tiesta Tea

I made this one again, this time with my electric kettle, so the water was boiling. It was PRIME!

The apple flavor came out very prominently, and it proves to be an outstanding base for this blend! The almond added a nutty backdrop and a richness to the flavor, while the cinnamon added a spicy edge and the beetroot pieces added color and texture. You can’t oversteep this one.

Bravo!!

drank Lemon Lift by Bigelow

This is the perfect lunchtime tea. The lemon is sweet and tart, and the base is mellow and not astringent. I felt much more alert after I drank it, and was ready to take on the afternoon. Huzzah!

Bio

Hello! I’m a recent college graduate, trying to find my way in the world. I love literature, politics, and tea.

Favorites: black, oolong, and white teas (anything with chocolate, vanilla, nutty, or spice notes!); pu- erh, yerba mate, chamomile, tulsi.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base for me to really enjoy it.

Dislikes: Plain green teas, rooibos, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
