I’ve barely touched most of my Blends club teas… so, based on the rating and aroma of this one (YUM), I figured I’d try it tonight as well!

The aroma of the dry tea is very appealing to me – like with Yabao Snickerdoodle, it’s the right spice combination; if there’s something in here that I don’t typically like, i’m not picking up on it. It mostly smells like gingerbread, to be honest… kind of like the soft ginger cookies I just made last week (cloves, ginger, cinnamon). Delicious. Flavourwise, this literally tastes like liquefied ginger cookies, with a creamy base. Win. Big win. This reminds me a bit of Laoshan Apothecary Green, of which I just purchased a bunch more, since I love the combination. Maybe that means there’s coriander in here too? That would be okay with me… I believe people were complaining about it being in too many teas, but I like it! Now, licorice? That’s another story… but thankfully, none here.

Anyhow, loving this blend. It’s just so comforting and creamy and perfectly spiced. I have no idea why it’s labeled “Earl”, given that I don’t taste any bergamot in here at all, but meh. Happier it tastes as it does. Also, not tasting the citrus. Maybe it died of old age in the bag and I just steeped its skeletons.

ETA: Duhhhh, I brewed this up as a green for some reason. IDEK. So 1.5 tsp to 8 oz. water, for 2 min at 82 C. Curious to try it brewed as a black, now.

It says berg oil in the ingredients. Maybe it didn’t spread over to the leaves in your batch when they mixed it? Too bad, it sounds amazing


This was SUCH a good tea! I miss it, maybe they will bring it back for the holidays this year! I might send them a FB message requesting it :D


Indigobloom – I read other people’s reviews, and it sounds like it wasn’t all that apparent to begin with. Juuuuust fine by me, though!
MissLena – That would be awesome! Not like I need more, though. But they do have the base teas in stock.


Ah. Good then! If I ever come across someone having a cuppa I’ll try a sip :P

Here’s another sipdown from Sil. Quite honestly, I was avoiding this one, but it’s actually pretty good if you sweeten it!


haha oh sure… avoid this one but dig right in to the tea of doom…

This is wonderful. It’s cozy and perfect as a hot cup of tea. I brewed for only a minute as suggested and the flavor is great with no bitterness. It’s a soft flavor. I can tell there is cinnamon and citrus (not obviously bergamot or orange, just light citrus) along with a chocolatey black tea, but nothing dominates. Everything blends together so well. I could drink this every day.
