Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend
Nov. 30th, 2016

As with their Chamomile (which was a good bit better), I got a few bags of this blend as a hotel guest in edifices where this was provided in-room, in individually wrapped bags. I hoped for more. The tea was surprisingly bitter and rather plain in taste, without any originality or uniqueness. I'd expect that from a ...

Chamomile to me is much like peppermint.

[Wait, wait, wait!!! Hear me out before you threaten to have my account deleted, my Internet access suspended, and some guys in green gowns wrap me in a straitjacket and haul me away to the rubber room.]

I've heard some people say that they think this tea is a bit strong when not made as a latte, but I think it's excellent either way. The smell is wonderful and the tea itself feels like a warm blanket and a crackling fireplace in the middle of a quiet winter's night. Wholeheartedly recommended--but with the addendum ab...

Apricot Ceylon

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon
Jan. 2nd, 2010

This tea is so good that I asked the ratetea.net guys to add it to their database!

It's a wonderful black tea (So, you get a pretty good caffeine hit from it.) that is made even better with just the right amount of apricot flavoring. The apricot flavoring is strong enough so that it doesn't disappear behind the Ceyl...
