I went to the store to find Twinings Earl Grey, my favorite, but they were out of stock. So I just grabbed this box because of the price. When I got home I looked at the ingredients: black tea and oil of bergamot. The bag smelled like essential oil, too bitter and pungent. But I went ahead and mixed it the same way I do any other Earl Grey: two sugars and some vanilla almond milk. The smell was still bitter, despite steeping it only about 40 seconds. The almond milk did not dilute it much and I ended up tossing the cup of tea down the drain. Vile and cheap.

This is the best tea ever! When will it be available again? I recommended it to all my friends and now none of us can get any. I wanted to give it with holiday gifts this year.

Absolutely my favorite tea of any color. First try it was OK. After 3 or 4 I was hooked. It’s a comfort food for me now. Three local Krogers appeared out of it and I was frantic – it looked like it might have been discontinued! NOOOOO!!! This is my main green tea, which I firmly believed has been instrumental in my losing about 40 lbs in 6 months (15 more than I wanted to, actually).

Only one word for this tea: heavenly!

Beautiful, full flavor cinnamon and the taste of hibiscus and orange peels give it a nice sweetness, without the need for sugar or honey.

I was planning only keeping this one at work, but I believe I’ll be taking it home as well!

Earl Grey might be my favorite tea, but this brand is disappointing. It’s bitter, and I’ve never gotten bitterness from any other brand of Earl Grey. I keep it as a back up for when I don’t have any other Earl Grey around.

This tea reminds me a lot of one from when I lived in Hawaii. Even though this is a bagged tea, the leaves are actually pretty good quality Ceylon and the flavor is refreshing. This one is good iced or hot, with or without sweetener, with or without creamer. The papaya and passion fruit flavors are sweet enough to drink straight, which is what I personally prefer. The closest comparison that I’ve had would be to the Rainbow Hawaii from my childhood, sold The Pacific Place’s Tea garden. That one is sold in loose leaf and only slightly better because it has more tropical fruit flavors that are better balanced.

Still hold up well for a bagged black tea. Had some this morning and enjoying it.

This is hand’s down one of my favorites. The sweet cinnamon is fantastic. I love that it is caffeine free.

Still the best tea I have ever found a grocery store before they brought Harney and Son’s to Target. A naturally sweet tea combined with just the right amount of cinnamon and almost impossible to over-steep, burn, or mess up in anyway. It’s my go to first tea to help get someone into drinking tea and bring them over to the dark side.
