Took a chance; glad I did! Like the other St. Dalfour fruit teas I have tried, the green tea itself is mild and doesn’t have a lot to say for itself, but the cinnamon/apple blend is nicely balanced: apple with a little cinnamon instead of heavy-duty autumnal spiced cider. Bought these bags for work, but may have to take part of them home to chill during hot weather.
Another one from the ggmathis box! Made a thermos of it before braving the crowd at Aldi on Saturday morning in the middle of a pandemic. Steeping time was the equivalent of one straight minute of aggressively dunking the bag up and down into the water until it looked nearly opaque in a tall porcelain vessel. Didn’t get to try it until after I emerged from Aldi with a few bruises from getting hip-checked by shopping carts in the produce aisle, but mmmmm. It’s a very light black base with just the right amount of sweet dark cherry flavor. If I manage to find this anywhere in a store, I’m grabbing a box. Very pleasant for being what appears to be a cheaply produced bagged tea dust. I’m used to those tasting like sorrow and a waste of $2 for the box.
Imagine a bowl full of fresh peeled peaches ready to be made into jam, well that what this tea smells like when you open each packet! My husband doesn’t like hot tea at all but he caught a whiff of this tea and wanted some. I bought several boxes so I wouldn’t run out. This is a truly suberb quality tea!
I’ve shared St. Dalfour’s Black Cherry with some of you, so you know that the flavor is subtle but authentic. The tea itself is gentle; doesn’t take the lead. It shows off the fruit.
This is the peachy counterpart. The blenders aren’t trying to make peach cobbler, so no ginger, no cinnamon, just sweet fruitiness. This is a good ’un on ice, too.
Perfect for the day. Just “attended” virtual church in the back yard with heavenly sunlight bathing my bare toes. Amen.
My big-kid-who’ll-never-grow-up hubby filled an Easter basket for me today, and this was in it. Gentle tea base with peach flavor that tastes real. (Reminds me of the mild white peaches from our backyard tree that’s long gone and I can’t find anywhere around here.) A good cheapster steepster (it came from Big Lots). I’m thinking it’ll be pleasant iced down in warmer weather.
Thanksgiving means a trip up to moms house, and rummaging through her tea collection. This is a pretty good Earl Grey tea. Really good, as far as boxed, bagged, tea goes. Full of flavor, nice balance, and an interesting hint of something I can’t place. I like it!
Still on vacation. Still trolling through my moms tea cabinet. She has a good collection, but most of it is fruit tea and blends. Not super what I am in to.
There are some pretty good catches, and this is one of them.
This is a pretty solid, very basic Earl Grey. Just what I look for. When you have a solid, super tasty tea, you don’t need to spice it up or go for some over the top thing. That is what appreciate about this. It is super solid, very well balanced. Every flavor that should be present in an Earl Grey is there, and nothing stands out.
For a boxed, bagged tea, this is very good.
At my moms for Thanksgiving, which means a new selection of teas. She loves fruit teas and blends, but does have a few goodies like this.
This is a great Breakfast Tea. Good balance, nice, sweet, simple taste, not overdone but certainly flavorful. Good stuff.
This is a new favorite of mine. I’m in love with it! I can’t really taste any rose, but it has a delicious vanilla strawberry taste.
I cold brew it as is, or sometimes mixed with white tea. 1 bag per cup of water and let sit in the fridge overnight. So good!
I’ve tried it hot a few times but I don’t really get the strawberry vanilla flavor that way, and if I brew it got and let it cool then the flavored are weak. I think it’s best cold brewed overnight in the fridge.
Flavors: Strawberry, Vanilla
I always come back to this tea. I am black tea for the mornings kind of woman, and I like green teas other times of the day (and spearmint if it’s before bed), but I do always come back to this tea as my #1 favorite. It has just enough of a hint of cherry to make a black tea have flavor and hits the spot just right. It’s hard to over-steep this to the point where it becomes bitter. In my experience, if I am using the hot water from the canteen at work (versus hot water that has been near boiling in the teapot at home), steeping time of about 5 minutes is right for me. My grocery store (Woodman’s) carries this for around $3.69 a box. Not bad for 25 packets of ORGANIC tea. And it’s imported from France. I am also happy with the design of the tea bag (not a fan of the ones without tags).
What the???? Is that pepper? Yep. That’s pepper.
I couldn’t even finish the cup. The base itself wasn’t bad – it’s just that weird pepper aftertaste that just lingers far too long. Ingredients say it also has vanilla. Where that be?
I very rarely say I wouldn’t recommend a tea, because everyone is different. But, if you don’t think you’d like pepper in your earl grey, stay away.

Taste: This is my first time trying a Earl Grey tea. I had ordered a sample packet on iherb & it came with 3 different teas from St.Dalfour. I had never heard of this company before so i decided to give it a try. What I found unique about this tea was the aroma it was peppery, which is quite different from what I’m used to when it comes to tea. As for the taste it was strong peppery & bitter, the second steep was lighter in flavor.Overall, I didn’t like this tea.
