drank English Teatime by Bigelow

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 agree the price is right for Bigelow for sure!

I have spent alot of money searching for this taste. I don’t need something spectacular in the mornings, just a black tea that takes well to milk.

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?

The search may never be over. I can’t ever stick to one tea in the morning like I think I can.

This made me think about the tea from Adagio that I really want to try. I think it’s just called “Cream” (black tea). Sounds like a yummy way to start the day!

@Rabbysmom, yeah it’s just called “cream”. All of Adagio’s black based flavored teas, which they simply call “flavored”, are just called by the flavor that they are. I’m not a black tea fan, but their Cream is a very good cream flavored black tea. If you haven’t ordered from them before, send me an email (regular, not a steepster PM), and I’ll email you a $5 coupon code off your 1st order:)

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.

drank Mint Verbena by Harney & Sons

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….

drank Vanilla Chai by Bigelow

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:)

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
