I like it! Nice bold black tea, nice bergamot although it’s weird to brew it only for 3 minutes. I usually brew my E.G.‘s from 5-8 mins. Just can’t get enough of EG so in love!

It’s amazing! Great taste, fresh spices, the balance between the spices are excellent. Used 2 tsp, steeped in half water, added the other half of boiled whole milk {served lifting the milk way up while serving it in an attempt to froth the milk as a latte} & added honey. Such a treat, made my day. I sometimes worry about the strength of the clove & peppercorns but they blend perfectly.

I’m starting to worry. I ordered a 5 oz bag of this EG, but there’s something different. Either it’s the new cup I’m using which seems a bit larger than a 4-5 oz & need to readjust the amount of tea per oz of water or… well, the bergamot smells different than the sampler I got before, like a faded smell, so far the tea tastes like a decaf which I certainly dislike. This is my second brew of the day, I’ll try again tomorrow, makes me sad that the sampler was a hit & now that I got my cute canister filled with this EG it just doesn’t tastes right.

Had it after dinner at a restaurant, I was in doubt about it but it was nice, tried it with one sugar. Had this strong taste from the 2 black varieties that is made of & a barely but recognizable woody taste from the oolong, never crossed my mind it paired so well. The taste from the lavender & bergamot are quite nice. I want to try it again, it reminded me of the Blue Earl Grey by Tealosophy.

I’ve tasted a few pu-erh’s but they were quite astringent, sweet & without body. This tastes woody, a slightly smokey aroma & was intimidated also for the strong dark color, but even the tea becomes velvety. I’m amazed of how good Arbor Teas are. Definitely I would buy it again. Brew it for 4 min first time, rebrew it for 5 mins, tasted lighter but nice.

drank Youthberry by Teavana

although I had a cold sample in the store, when hot tasted a little bit fragant, love that’s white tea based, sweetened with a dash of honey. It’s tasty & yummy having it cold, let’s see how the second steep comes up.

A very nice surprise, I’m also an Earl Grey freak & this one hits the top 3 of my list. As TeaEqualsBliss wrote, it’s a strong black tea but you’ll be ok if you accidentally oversteep. Either a straight cup, or with honey & milk (I might get crucified for this) it’s a perfect tea to wake up in the morning or a sweet treat in the afternoon. The bergamot amount it’s perfect & tastes natural.

I’m new to Oolong tea, had a sampler once & I really liked it, but I would love to know how is the traditional way to drink it? Have you added any sweeteners? or milk?

thanks a lot!

I like it but expect it to be a little more mild & strong.

drank Jasmine Pearls by Tealosophy
48 tasting notes

I’m new to this pearls, the first time I steeped too long & it was woody w/ a barely jasmine taste but the second time & used a preheated tea cup & sipped w/ the leaves still in there (I usually remove them) It was absolutely yummy, the balance between the green tea & the jasmine flowers was lovely, no sugar needed although every now & then is nice.
•••
Soy nueva en esto de las perlas pero la segunda vez que las dejé infusionar mucho tiempo & dejé las hebras de té mientras lo tomaba (normalmente las quito) & quedó delicioso, el balance del te verde & las flores de jazmín son perfectas, no ser requiere de azucar aunque de repente se antoja un poco dulce.

Yay! Another Spanish speaker! I only just saw your reviews!

Is there much of a tea culture in Mexico? Here in Ecuador it is very rare to find someone who likes or even knows about tea! But I feel like it is catching on slooowly…

eh.mio

Hola! I feel it’s also catching slowly in Mexico, there’s a teahouse {Caravanserai} which is really nice & I heard another one recently opened I can’t wait to go & give it a try. Also there’s a tea somelier {leticiasaenz.com}that launched her line of teas, bought a flavored earl grey {I adore EG} & got some samples, I’ll let you know. How’s tea in Ecuador?

Ninavampi

Hola!!! Tea in Ecuador in near to non existent. I have been really lucky and through much searching I have managed to find a few small tea shops that sell a decent array of teas. Most I have to import or have people bring me when they come to visit.

I am hoping that the tea culture will grow, seeing as it has in other South American countries. I am all for it! : )

I drink mostly Earl Grey. Enjoy Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon. Love Masala Chai, Jasmine & some greens from Japan. I like blends as long as they taste natural & are well balanced. I’m new to Oolong & Pu-erh which so far taste fantastic. Some infusions that I make on a regular basis are orange tree leaves, lemongrass, guava, apple-cinnamon-cardamom, etc.

Casi siempre bebo Earl Grey. Disfruto del Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam & Ceylon. Me encanta el Masala Chai, Jazmín & otros tés verdes del Japón. Me gustan los blends siempre & cuando el sabor sea natural & tengan un buen balance. Soy nueva con el Oolong & el Pu-erh los cuales hasta ahora me parecen fantásticos. Algunas infusiones que hago regularmente son hojas de naranjo, limón, guayaba, manzana-canela-cardamomo, etc.
