I hated this tea, then grew to like it. Pretty startling mate flavor (not a consistent mate drinker here) but pretty good for a wake-up tea. For me, it needs some soy milk, and maybe a bit of sugar.

Holy mother, this is the best vanilla tea I’ve had. It’s perfect alone, piping hot. Not too strong with the cinnamon, which I prefer. Nutty and sweet (…as the name would suggest…) and great for a cold day. This was my morning tea.

It’s a good tea, but lacks in vanilla taste. A good alternative is Celestial Seasonings Nutcracker Sweet.

it’s not only a good alternative to Nutcracker Sweet, it’s identical ;)

Duly noted. I think the festive Nutcracker packaging appealed to me more than that creepy lemur.

drank Chai by Twinings of London

As far as chai goes, this is okay, it’s reasonable and comforting to drink on a cold day, but nothing to write home about. I’d recommend it to someone who doesn’t like excess cinnamon in their chai, but I probably won’t buy another box of it. It tastes as good with a dash of soy and without.

Was not expecting to like this, purely by the smell (so much cinnamon!) alone. Too much cinnamon is a strike for me, but this one worked well. I take it with a little soy milk, and is even good warm.

Good but not great. I drink it for the sake of a hot drink and that’s about it.

Definitely loved this tea. It’s very vanilla-y and comforting, doesn’t need a speck of sugar. Wish it were stronger.

drank Earl Grey by Bigelow

Fast steeping, great flavor. I love a strong Earl Grey. Good choice, a little stronger than the Twinings, though I prefer the latter’s overall taste and smell. Taken with a sprinkle of sugar and a tiny amount of soy milk.

My sister loves this tea, but I, for one, loathe chamomile, as this tea taught me. It’s too cottony for my taste, but I can understand why others like it.

A great tea. It’s solid and it’s awesome. There isn’t much to say about it other than I really enjoyed it. I take it with a bit of soy milk and a sprinkle of sugar, with the bag left in.
