I received this tea from my friend for my birthday. With a name like “Flower Heaven”, I thought it would be a good night time tea. The flavour is lovely! All lavender and chamomile but lavender is the predominant flavour. It’s very floral without going overboard. It really is a perfect tea for sipping in the evening before bed. I really do love the lavender in here. It dances on the tongue and makes for a delightful cup. A simple tea but I love it!
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve had to add a new tea to the steepster catalog but I picked this one up from Marshalls. (I realllly need to stop buying tea…)
Didn’t realize this has rose or licorice in it when I bought it but I was pleasantly surprised by it’s absence. It is tart, but not too tart. The hibiscus, though it’s a main ingredient, it pretty mellow and lets the berry flavors shine through a bit.
Flavors: Berry, Blueberry, Hibiscus, Tart
This is quite a mild tea but it has an interesting and enjoyable blend of flavors. I find that the licorice flavor really comes through more in the aftertaste but it is only slightly noticeable when you first taste it.
About 10 seconds after I swallow the tea the licorice flavor starts to come out and it lasts for a couple minutes before you need to take another sip. It is strange how that works.
The more I drank the better I liked this tea. This is one of those teas that you want to just sip slowly and spread the taste out over a longer period of time.
Flavors: Fennel, Licorice
Thanks to MissB for sending me some of this! Honestly, I was a little reluctant to try this after reading the ingredients list. Licorice AND anise? Black pepper? These are not ingredients that I am traditional fond of. But actually this isn’t so bad. I’m not picking up any spiciness. Instead it tastes mostly like sweet licorice candy. Not something I would pick up on my own but certainly not something I would pour out either. It’s as good iced as it is hot. Sipdown!
Wuuuuh, it’s FREEZING outside! Parts of my state are actually already getting snow! Fall and spring don’t last nearly long enough anymore.
Having a cup of this to warm myself up and also to ward off any wind-sickness I might get from wearing an inadequately warm jacket and having the tops of my feet exposed. I love ginger; it’s such a magical herb. This particular tea is rather unexciting though, so once it’s sipped down I’ll be in the market for a better ginger base blend.
Flavors: Ginger, Spicy
And drinking this one, mostly because I wanted an excuse to get off the freaking phones for one freaking minute at work, but also because it is good for my throat, which is sore from allergies and talking to stupid people nonstop.
If I get “I don’t know, I’m not tech-savvy” one more time after I ask which browser a caller is using…. I shall scream.
Flavors: Cookie, Ginger
My boyfriend told me to get this one because he has it at work and he says it’s really good for when you’re sick.
I accidentally uploaded the wrong picture for this (helpfully, Higher Living uses the exact same design and colors for their Lemon & Ginger blend….), and then of course Steepster doesn’t let you change the default picture. I uploaded the right one for it, but you have to click on the tea and then click on Other Images to see it.
I was crazy anxious last night, and it helped a lot. It’s soothing and surprisingly mild. It almost has a sugar cookie taste to it. The longer you let it steep, the better it gets.
Very good for anyone who wants the benefits of ginger without the intense spiciness.
Flavors: Cookie, Ginger, Lemon Zest
There sure do seem to be a lot of organic tea companies based in the UK! This one, Higher Living, looks very similar to Pukka, what with the percentage breakdowns of herbal ingredients and the colorful, upbeat packaging.
Lemon & Ginger brews up cloudy gold and is very close in flavor to Stash Lemon Ginger. Imagine that! The ginger tastes like powdered ginger (which of course it is—this is a filter bag), so though it is pretty strong (39%), it does not really have the zing of a fresh ginger infusion.
Perfectly fine as a functional tea when fresh ginger is not on hand.
(Blazing New Rating #29)
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon, Licorice
The teapees are nice and large with a very see through organza so you can see the quality and ingredients perfectly. It has a highly perfumed bergamot and rose scent that is sweet and thick.
Ingredients: Organic Black Tea, Organic Rose Petals, Natural Bergamot Flavour, Natural Rose Flavour.
Steeping instructions: Use one teapee with freshly boiled water for 4-5 minutes.
Sampling this tea with a drop of milk.
In flavour this tea matches it’s scent very well. The tea is perfumed and thick with dominant bergamot and soft, sweet rose tones which linger in the after taste. As a whole the ingredients taste pure and natural which leaves my mouth with crystal clear flavours. It is a little unusual to have rose in an Earl Grey but it works well with this, it adds a nice level of sweetness. It is also a little sour but the milk helps to smooth a lot of it out.
