This is the final tea bag from the swap that will have its review. The stash has been vanquished! I noted that this was “the most boring” of the group. I didn’t get a lot of raspberry nor pomegranate. The tea bag didn’t have any major aroma, either.

the weather may be really nice outside, but my colleagues made the lab feel like the arctic, so… earl grey to warm up!

I feel your pain. We start sleeveless in the morning and end up under multiple layers by 2 p.m.

although letting this tea cool down for 45min helps, letting it steep for 2min is entirely too much for me; although a much nicer black tea base than what I first tasted (half of a box ago?), it still lacks the citrus-bergamot-fresh thing

I let my tea cool down (forgot about it) and now the bergamot is definitely there!
I think it’s the first time I’m actually able to taste it, but such is life
now, this tea is much more enjoyable :D

I’ve found that cutting the steep time by half helps with the acidity! yay!!

still feels like pure black tea, which is not necessarily bad, but not what I got it for

would only recommend IF the buyer/drinker knows that this is not citrus-y in the slightest

this feels like black tea, the bergamot is VERY faint; which is a shame, because I prefer earl grey over most black teas BECAUSE it has the bergamot to lessen the typical bitterness

This is awful and I don’t know why. How do you mess up lemon and ginger? But there’s something so chemical going on with it that it gave me a headache.

Flavors: Chemical, Lemon

That sounds rough!

Tamarindel

@ashmanra Yes, definitely! And normally their teas have a pretty good reputation? Really don’t know what happened here.

Nice fruity tea that packs a tropical punch. Clean tasting with a natural fruity flavor. Very mango forward with a note of lychee in the background that hangs around in the finish. Surprisingly good for a bagged tea. Recommend this for when you want something dessert like or sweet.

Flavors: Lychee, Mango, Tropical

drank Cardamon Tea by Ahmad Tea
5 tasting notes

I used the loose leaf tea. Ahmad is a favorite amongst some friends so I wanted to try some of their tea. When I saw the Cardamom Tea, it was my must-have choice. Based on the back-of-the-box instructions, I steeped at the median of their suggested time—or six minutes. I figured I could adjust up or down from there. Six minutes was perfect. Great cardamom taste and a lovely and smooth black tea in the background. With my unexpectedly huge tin—I didn’t pay attention and ended up with 500g of the stuff, I’m pretty set for quite a while.

Flavors: Cardamom

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 5 tsp 32 OZ / 946 ML

I was at World Market today and I had to buy this tea because of the cute tin! I have tried the Earl Grey tea bags from Ahmad and really liked it. First time I have bought loose leaf tea from them. I am enjoying it as a latte with vanilla honey and it’s really good. My favorite Earl Grey teas are still from Stash and Harney and Sons but this one is really good. Has a light floral flavor which is interesting because it has no flowers in it. I would buy this tea again. They have three other loose leaf teas I want to try too.

Flavors: Bergamot, Floral

Spotted this at the Middle Eastern grocery store and thought it would make a nice base for decaf earl grey lattes. I love earl grey tea but don’t have it that often as I really only crave it – and black tea in general – in the evening when I’m trying to avoid caffeine.

Teabag smelled like Lipton. A wee bit of bergamot peeks through while steeping but the aroma is nothing close to that of loose leaf earl grey. Steeped for 5 minutes using boiling water. The tea concentrate was tannic and artificial tasting. Adding milk and sugar did improve things. However the flavor pales in comparison to the Adiago Earl grey I’ve been using for lattes lately. May need to double up on the teabags next time or use less milk.
