This tea was quite strong flavoured, with a nice smell. The flavour was ambiguous and I could not smell any identifiable fruit, but it was nice nonetheless. Good afternoon pick-me-up.

I made this iced in my tea press and oh my goodness, it was so good! I used 3 tea bags to make sure that there was lots of flavour. It was naturally sweet and bursting with so much berry flavour. So refreshing! Berry, berry good!!!

Flavors: Berries, Sweet

I bought this tea at Winners for a great price. I really enjoyed the soothing effect of the ginger mixed with the honey. In my opinion, one does not outshine the other. Thoroughly enjoyed!

More spring flavors to distract me from the fact that it’s dandruffing outside. (Too dry to be real snow :)

Last shot in a gift-pack from a friend. Leans a little toward the perfumey in scent and flavor, but still very drinkable.

A straightforward, simple and uncomplicated peppermint tea. I’ve never had a peppermint tea that I didn’t like. Comfort in a cup!

It’s an average Earl Grey tea. A little light on the bergamot flavour for my liking. I would prefer the bergamot to be a little more pronounced. It’s not the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had but it’s not bad either.

I really enjoyed this. Sweet in a very subtle way. Definitely helped me calm down after I was super frazzled, and didn’t knock me out like chamomile (which was what I was looking for).

The smell of this tea as it steeps is delightful. A lovely, fresh, juicy peach aroma. The flavour is of delicious peaches with a background of ginger. Really nice. A satisfying, soothing tea that I’m sure would taste just as good iced as it does hot. I drank mine black but I bet this would be really good with a touch of honey added as well.

A really nice soothing tea. A lot of teas with citrus, lemon, or ginger in them tend to have overly pronounced flavor, but this is very mellow in a nice way. I really enjoyed this one.

I’m normally not into sweet teas but this was really pleasant. It doesn’t have an artificial taste, just a nice, smooth, subtly chocolate/vanilla feeling. I really enjoyed it.

I was surprised at how much I liked this tea. I wasn’t really expecting much. It’s a solid English Breakfast Tea. This is one of the better English Tea Shop teas. Once in a while, I just want a decent cup of black tea and this does the trick.

Another find in the office kitchen. I’ve had (probably) the world’s worst cold this last week, and all I wanted today was some normal tea. It’s a thing with me when I’m ill, and I can’t taste anything particularly well at the moment anyway, so…

I used one bag for my cup. They’re individually wrapped in the cutest red, white and blue envelopes. I gave it a good 3.5 minutes, and added milk. To taste, it’s pretty much as you’d expect. It reminds me quite a lot of Bluebird’s Great British Cuppa, in that it has a waxy roast white potato aspect to it. There’s also a hint of saltiness in the mid-sip, which works well with the potato note. The maltiness comes out mostly towards the end of the sip, and in the aftertaste, and adds a pleasant sweetness to round off on. It’s robust-tasting, but not as strong as some I’ve tried – just a pleasing, everyday kind of cup. Just what I was craving!

Not bad. Drank it with a little vanilla almond milk. The spices are mild and not overpowering but I found the black tea base to be a little bitter. I think I’ll add honey or maple syrup next time and see if that helps.
