39 Tasting Notes

Some have said it tastes like English Breakfast, but EB always gets too bitter. I had no trouble with bitterness with this. It has a slightly more distinct taste, perhaps from the Keemun. The tin said boiling water for 5 minutes but I did it for only 2 after letting it cool a few minutes and it was perfect.

drank Pumpkin Spice by Bigelow

I worked hard comparing this to Bigelow’s Vanilla Chai. The difference seems to be the ginger and licorice in this one, whereas the Chai has more cloves. Other reviewers have added orange to the tasting notes, but I didn’t taste any citrus or fruit flavors until I read the notes. If it is there, it’s extremely faint. The two teas certainly smell different, but the taste is very similar. The Pumpkin Spice is a tad sweeter while the Chai is warmer, if that makes any sense. It is still something I would still buy every year.

A great blend of all the pumpkin spice flavors without being too much – and it’s decaf, which is good for afternoon tea time.

drank British Blend by Tetley

It’s a great basic tea that’s inexpensive. I prefer PG Tips and Yorkshire Gold, but both are far more expensive. I tried Tetley’s and was pleasantly surprised by how good it is. Sometimes it’s nice to just have a good plain tea with no frills.

This is a good tea year-round, but it seems to only be sold in the Fall where I have bought it. It’s great for anyone who isn’t a fan of pumpkin spice or chai. It would probably be good with a touch of cocoa in it.

I had this tea once before at a tea party and since I am tired of all my usual teas I thought I’d get a box. This is definitely a keeper. It’s like a mix of Chai and Orange Bliss. Orange Bliss is good but not something I’m typically in the mood for and chai is best in the fall. A good, flavorful tea that can be had at any time of the year. :) I also appreciate that the box says how much caffeine it has since decaf does not necessarily mean totally decaffeinated.

Flavors: Cloves, Orange Zest

I get this tea every spring. It’s become a staple on those chilly, rainy days when everything is just beginning to turn green. It’s one of those days today, in fact.

I had something just like this in a restaurant and though I tried everything from Country Peach Passion (Celestial Seasonings) and Perfect Peach (Bigelow) what I was really looking for was just plain Peach. I don’t need rose hips, hibiscus, apple, strawberry—just give me Peach, please! And Stash delivered! So glad I found this, and though the store was selling it for $5 it is definitely worth it. One of my new favorites. :)

It reminds me of a red hot or those cinnamon peppermints you can get. No, thanks.
