I love having basic black tea on hand because sometimes I just want something tried-and-true. Usually I drink Red Rose, but I decided to snap up a box of PG Tips because I had heard good things. This tea does not disappoint! Even in bags (which are pyramid-shaped to allow the tea leaves more room to move around) the tea ends up very flavorful and delicious. I love it! Definitely a good thing to have on hand.
14 Tasting Notes
In love with this tea. It smells wonderful, before and after brewing, the touch of cinnamon is lovely, and, to quote my mom, it tastes like a muffin! One of the most comforting teas I’ve ever had. Tastes a bit funny with milk, but that could be just the ingredients. I like it with just a touch of honey, personally!
Perfect tea is perfect. This is everything I have ever wanted in a tea. It’s flavorful but not overpowering, the flavors mix together perfectly (especially when enhanced with cream and sugar), and it smells like a bakery. So tasty, my goodness. I just love it. If I had to choose one tea to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it, to be honest.
This is the manliest tea of all time. I brewed it way too long this time so I’ll halve the time next time, but with cream and sugar it’s still quite nice. Plain I felt like it was going to make me grow a beard, it was so manly! This tea makes me think of being out all day in the pouring rain, getting soaked to the bone, and then getting back to your log cabin, changing into soft, dry clothes and having a warm, strong cuppa to wake you up and warm you up. Incredibly comforting. Love love love.
I bought this around Christmas and fell in love with it. The first time I brewed it, I wasn’t really sure what to do with it, but now I steep it quite a while, give the teabag a good stir in the water before I remove it, add half a teaspoon of sugar (come on, it’s sugar cookie tea!) and a dash of milk. This tea is the color of snow, it smells heavenly (very buttery-smelling to me!), and is very smooth and nice. A lovely tea for any time you want something sweet. The tea isn’t very strong (hence steeping for so long, although I’ll have to try double-bagging it), but it’s good. The smell is my favorite part about it!
It’s too bad I didn’t pick up more. Oh well, at least there are other dessert teas out there!
Pretty good, with honey and creamer. Definitely smells delicious, and very strongly of cinnamon while it’s steeping. Essentially, it’s just another kind of chai. I enjoyed it, though!
I LOVE this tea! I just tried it for the first time and just steeped it for four minutes, added a teaspoon of honey and let it cool. It smells DELICIOUS, like soft vanilla (rather than harsh like vanilla extract) and I found once it had cooled a decent amount (about 10 minutes) I could taste all the flavors better.
Essentially, it just tastes like chamomile, but the hint of vanilla is there. It’s light, but not too light to where you can’t taste it. This is definitely a good tea to drink while curling up with a book, as someone said before. I’ll definitely be keeping it on hand from now on!
Even as a child when I HATED tea, Dad would pull this one out of the cupboard so I could smell the tea bags. They smell amazing: if you love the smell of oranges, that is! Now that I drink tea a lot, I’ve tried this and it’s just as delicious as it smells. I’m not a fan of fruity teas, but this one is so good with some honey in it that I really enjoy it!
This tea is deeeelicious. It’s great with or without sweetener, smells wonderful, and tastes very happy, if that makes any sense at all. I’m not even a big fan of fruity teas, but it’s yummy, and I hope to get more very soon!

My parents always drink Twinings tea (English Breakfast and Earl Grey are always on stock in our house). I absolutely love Earl Grey, and this is lovely to drink for being inexpensive. I love the scent, the flavor is lovely, and I just add a spoonful of honey and some milk and I’m set. It’s a very cozy tea.
I really enjoy this tea. It’s hard to come by where I live (a small town in the US), but it smells lovely and is definitely a very flowery tea. The flavor is really light, though, which is great. I can’t decide whether I like it better with a little honey or without, but it seems to be good either way!
This tea will forever remind me of cold winter nights spent with my boyfriend and his family: his mom would make a pot of tea every time I was over, pour in a good amount of milk and a teaspoon of sugar… so delicious. I’m sure it’s just your standard black tea, but it’s definitely the kind I drink the most, now. I love it.
Plus, it comes with a little handmade figurine!
I’m a huge fan of iced chai tea, but my experiences with warm chai weren’t as good, so I’ve been looking for the perfect one. This is the closest I’ve gotten! It’s got a great scent, and tastes wonderful with a little cream and some honey. I’m actually sipping it right now. :)
