2 tea bags in my Chatsford wrapped up in my cozie. Delicious orange flavor with a nice balance of spice..all this flavor and caffeine free too.
295 Tasting Notes
1 tsp PH plus 1 tsp of indian spices. Brewed 3 minutes in my Chatsford.
I still don’t have the ratio right…weak, but drinkable. You can taste the plum very slightly. I added the indian spices to even out this Teavana blend…way too sweet with just the plum harvest. Maybe I should add rock sugar to the next pot. Caffeine free, so I can drink all I want, experiment all I want tonight:) ummmm…This might be a better iced tea.
First sip is a orange taste as you swallow you taste the spices. A very soothing cup of tea. I find myself reaching for this more as I let go of black teas. This herbal tea makes a rich cup…I find that most herbals are weak, but not this one:)
This is a nice light “mostly” white tea. The blueberry taste comes through, but not too strong. Some blueberry teas that I have tasted seem fake, but this one tastes more true to the essence of blueberry…if that makes any sense…the blueberries are perfectly balanced with the white and green tea base. I do not taste any other flavors, just white tea and blueberries. Lipton has done a nice job with their pyramid tea bags. Will definitely be purchasing again.
With the pyramid type tea bag, Lipton is bringing the world of fine teas to the masses. This white tea does not taste like flowers..something I look for in a white tea. The mango and peach flavors are perfectly balanced. The leaves in the bag are large…no dustings here…after 2-3 minute infusion, the once empty looking pyramid is now completely filled with leaves. The smell from this cup reminds one of a summer day. 18 pyramids in the box for $2.00 from my local WalMart. Life just got simple.
Nice flavor. I am not using this alone. I like to add this to other teas to help balance them out and add a bit of a spicey note.
Today I added this to Plum Oolong and yum is the result!
Nice spicey cup of caffeine free bliss. Good real orange flavor. Smells really nice almost Chai like, almost. I can see that this will be my before bedtime tea.
This is not as strong as Teavana English Breakfast and I like this better! It is the perfect blend of bitter and smooth with more on the smooth end. Nice smell in the mug and took a splash of milk perfectly. You can’t beat the price for this tea.
I am back to my EBT this morning. This is a familiar taste. I have been experimenting quit a bit lately with different teas, it feels good to start the day out with a solid tea. From the last time I drank this tea, I have tried a Yunnan…it was not what I had hoped for…although it was a good cuppa while drinking the Yunnan, the headache that came afterwards was horrible. So I have retired the Yunnan to the storage shelf. I wonder, will I ever find the perfect breakfast tea? Or is this a life long search for that perfect morning cuppa?
Nice. Minty flavor. This is something I will order when I am done with my loose peppermint leaves. The tea bag makes drinking peppermint way easier! and this IS a nice blend.
Brews up a nice amber colored brew. Pleasant, earthy smell. Mild flavor with a smooth finish. I have drank this twice, both times I developed a tremendous headache. I don’t know why. Any ideas?
Ginger is very strong. I really don’t like lemon in my tea, but I like this. The lemon is in the background in this blend.
Got a sample of this at the Dallas World Aquarium. It is very light and tasty. The mint does not overpower…would be great after a meal or before bed. Before all was said and done I was wishing I had another sample….so it is added to my shopping list.
12/25/09 I have been very anxious to try this blend and it was in my stocking! Thanks to my youngest daughter:) Very tasty. The sage does not overpower the black tea at all and you can really taste the blackberries. Nice.
12/31/09 drank this again today. Not liking it too much. Lowered my rating.
12/25/09 Got this for Christmas from my oldest daughter. This is a light, refreshing black tea. It reminds me of a white tea. You can taste the peach and apricot over the ginger. The black tea takes a back seat to the other flavor profiles.
12/14/09 My Teavana order arrived tonight. I have been busy putting the Rock Sugar away and the teas into tins. This English Breakfast Tea is what I have been searching for…smooth taste, not bitter. Takes well to sugar and milk. Reminds me of coffee. Thanks to all the reviews here at Steepster, I think I have finially found my daily tea. I have been able to get 3 infusions, making this tea very affordable for everyday drinking.
12/18/09 I really like this tea. Three infusions. It reminds me of coffee when you add milk. Just a few crystals of rock sugar and you are good to go. This is my morning tea.
12/21/09 Got four infusions from this tonight. This is fast becoming my everyday favorite. Just plain and simple and the price point is affordable and with getting multiple infusions too, I am more than happy with this tea! I do add a few rock sugar crystals and a splash of milk…tastes heavenly in my cup.
12/29/09 I did not drink all the tea in my cup today…This is a first..Maybe I am over this tea?! 12/30/09 too much rock sugar..ugh:( poured out, reinfused the leaves w/an added pinch. Better, drinkable. 1/1/10 just ok1/3/10 brewed plain no sugar I like it better! Waiting for my Yunnan to come….
This is my favorite tea. Love the smoothness and the smell. I have gone through more boxes of this tea than any other
12/17/09 Yummy. This is hands down my favorite tea. The smell is fantastic and the cup I had today was perfection in a cup. (It tasted especially good after the cup of Constant Comment I had this afternoon at work). Smooth vanilla spice flavor. I will always have this in my/ cupboard.
12/18/09 Must be a bad tea bag…smell was awful, taste was worse:(
12/21/09 On my second cup of this tea tonight. So delicious after supper. Just the right amount of sweetness. Hot tea is always great with chocolate and tonight I am nibbling on peppermint bark with my tea:)1/2/10:)
This is ok. I don’t really taste the spice in it. Just ok.
This is wonderful. Great for after dinner. Blends well with other teas. You get alot for your money, so buy the smallest amount.
This is a really messy tea. No matter how I have brewed this…a mess in the infuser. I not a fan of Chamomile. It is a beautiful tea, just not my cuppa.
The sweet smell was almost too much, I almost did not even make it. Flowery..dah…it did say it had rose petals. Giving this to my co-worker for her Christmas present. She will love it.
Teas are made for sharing:)
Apple pieces make for a delicious cup of herbal tea. I use this at bedtime, very refreshing. Tart but not too sweet.
12/16/09 Beautiful color in my cup. Sweet is the word I would use to describe this tea. I like the Turkish Apple from Upton better. Next time, I make this I will only use 1 tsp.
Got this free sample with the new RoT catalog. I am glad it was free is all I can say.
Smells great, tastes ok, but weak.
