This is a lovely green tea. Tastes fruity with a hint of floral.

I found that this smells a lot like Davidstea Raspberry Mojito. I wasn’t a huge fan of that one, so I am a little skeptical of trying this one out. I prepared it iced and I did not like it at all! The mint is overpowering the berry taste in a really bad way. This one is going for a trip down the kitchen drain.

Has a nice chocolate/vanilla flavor and the rooibos taste is just perfect in this blend. I like this tea! I got a cute set of 3 tins of 25g each at marshalls on clearance and decided, why not try em? They sound delish. Super Berries and Green Tea Pomegranate were the other two teas in the set.

I’m continuing with my challenge (or trying to…) while I’m away, which means I’m writing these up as and when I can. I simplified things for myself as much as I could by buying a Varieteas box before I left – they’re a curated selection of 30 different teas, but all of them bagged. Not my usual thing, but useful in this particular set of circumstances.

My first pick was English Tea Shop’s Comfort Me. I felt in need of comfort this evening, after a long, trying day of travelling. It’s a blend of chamomile, spearmint, ginger, basil, vanilla, marjoram, amalaki and guduchi. No idea about the last two, but otherwise I’m on board.

It’s surprisingly heavy on the vanilla, with an edge of spiciness, and a background of chamomile. There’s just a touch of spearmint, which works really nicely with the vanilla to create a kind of butter mint effect. If butter mints were spicy, that is. I don’t immediately recognise the spiciness as ginger, although I suppose that’s what it is. I feel like I’m particularly sensitive to ginger and it doesn’t really bother me here, so that’s a bonus.

I’m intrigued by this one. I like it more than I thought I would, although I’m going to have to research amalaki and guduchi a little to find out what they are. Not tonight, though! Otherwise, glad to have tried this one.

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!

Flavors: Ginger, Honey

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.

Flavors: Bergamot

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.

Flavors: Ginger, Peach

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.

Flavors: Lemon

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.

Flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla
