Finished this cup in record time! Great blend of spices with rooibos, one of my favorites. Got a gift box from my mom as a gift and she also got a cute little red tea cup with an top that has a hole in it so the little tea leaf can stick out as it steeps. It’s all very cute, right down to the tea pyramid! Although I think Tea Forte is expensive, this is a really good tea and I may buy it next year since I think it’s a seasonal flavor.

Fragrant, citrusy and light, this reminds me a bit of Lady Grey by Twinings. I like that Stash puts more information on their packages like which varieties of black they use and where they get the bergamot, rather than just “black tea” and “bergamot flavoring”.

Threw this one away after a few cups over a week or so. Drinkable, “coffeeish” but I’d much rather have Irish Breakfast tea!

Birthday night. Lots of homemade lasagna and Carvel cake. A bit of a tummy ache called for this tea and it’s a perfect remedy and a great way to end the night!

Much more interesting than the basic black, enjoying this again this morning but this time straight up. Nice smooth taste and good flavor. I’ve been very impressed with this variety pack from Twinings.

Tasted better before I added sugar, next time I will have plain which is nice and easy! Good for when I feel like something stronger in flavor than Lady Grey.

If you want a SUPER caffeine kick, Earl Grey loose leaf by Taylors of Harrogate will knock your socks off! It’s not overly bergamonted and they use china black tea. A beautiful and robust combination. :)

That sounds great- thanks for the suggestion!

This blows Bigelow’s English Breakfast out of the water! Enjoyed my first cup of this in the afternoon after sitting outside waiting for Santa with the kids (cold!). I can taste such a distinct difference between this and Bigelow, my usual English Breakfast brand. I want to say it’s more complex? The quality is obvious here in Twinings.

If this is what “malty” tastes like, I like it a lot!! This is the morning tea I’ve been searching for all these months. Perfect by itself but I did add sugar and whole milk and it was just delicious. This tea makes me want to get the loose leaf so I can make a whole pot. There’s hope for me yet!
