drank English Teatime by Bigelow

I’ve been working on finishing up all my random teabags, and I found this one. It tasted all right both with and without milk. Nothing special about it, but it was a pretty nice, regular breakfast blend.

Mild berry flavor on an okay black tea. Not that special, but it tastes okay. A little fake, but also interesting. I only had the single bag that RoT must have sent with an order or magazine at some point.

We need to let RoT know that John Bates would never have selected anything that fussy. He would start the morning with strong builders’ tea, no sugar, no milk. Anna was a pretty tough cookie herself… ;)

I like their Downton Abbey Pudding Tea

Why did I order this tea? Probably to get to the free shipping minimum. I didn’t expect to like it, but it’s decent! Quite mild to be considered a chai. It’s one of those blends where I wasn’t sure if I should add sugar or not. The turmeric is thankfully mild, but the other spices are as well. It’s a nice gentle chai with the main flavors being ginger and the warming, though not overly savory turmeric. Not exciting or bold enough to order again, but I don’t regret this purchase. The second steep tastes really different and randomly sweet. I drank both steeps with milk. I finished my .8 oz sample bag, and now I do sort of want more, hmm.

drank Juniper Mint Honey by Tazo
876 tasting notes

Single bag from a tea box. This is a lot more floral than I would have guessed. Not that much mint. Really, it was just sort of floral and maybe a bit of honey. Wouldn’t need to try it again.

Martin Bednář

That sounds so interesting… juniper combined with the mint; too bad it isn’t that great :(.

AJRimmer

I know, it sounded super good! Oh well!

gmathis

Good to know. Saw it on the shelf at Target and I was waffling.

Wow, the coconut here is super strong. Stronger than I’d prefer, to be honest. The green rooibos is lovely and soft. Really the only thing happening here is the coconut. I did a cold brewed second steep, which turned out quite strong as well. I’d choose S&V’s coconut macaroon over this one, but this isn’t bad either. I wish it had another flavor to complement the coconut.

drank Rooibos Creme Caramel by Teapigs
876 tasting notes

I don’t love the rooibos that Teapigs uses as much as other brands. I’m drinking this one cold, and it’s a bit metallic and plain. I really wouldn’t call this caramel at all. It’s just a simple, not that flavorful rooibos.

gmathis

We have a few Teapigs varieties at a local Natural Grocers … do you have a favorite?

AJRimmer

I like their seasonal gingerbread flavor. They make nice staple flavors like licorice and mint as well, though they’re super overpriced.

Mastress Alita

I love their Snooze blend, but the price for 15 sachets with no other options turns me off from restocking it every time.

Thanks to tea-sipper for this sample! The flavors aren’t unique or very interesting, but it’s a decently hearty chai. I think the problem for me might be that it’s not super balanced. It mostly just focuses on one spice…though my tastes aren’t sophisticated enough for me to know which one. Maybe it’s ginger, though you’d think I’d recognize ginger. I don’t know. It’s not wimpy on the spice front, which I appreciate. I just wish for a little more complexity.

tea-sipper

Yeah, I think it’s the ginger!

Free sample from a previous order. Hmm maybe I should have had this one warm. Cold, it’s a little earthy for me. The ginger is there, but it’s not as warm and sharp as I’d prefer. I’d definitely just buy grocery store brands over this one.

drank Summer Night by Adagio Teas
876 tasting notes

This one is like apple or orange juice, but with added fruitiness. I’m enjoying it cold. There’s also some nice minty herbiness. It’s quite refreshing! I do the second steep cold brewed, and that one is always nice as well.

drank Candy Cane Popcorn by Tea Revv
876 tasting notes

This one tastes like caramel popcorn. The second steep was super tasty as well. I really like the flavoring they used. I don’t get any candy cane at all, it’s 100% caramel corn to me. I had it both with and without milk. I’d drink it again for sure.

Cameron B.

Okay, candy cane popcorn sounds like the best thing ever… Like peppermint bark on popcorn?! :O

AJRimmer

It’s something I never realized I wanted until I saw this tea name!

Tiffany :)

Sounds like a winner.. Caramel corn from david’s tea was one of the first favorite teas of mine.

Bio

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
