The essence of Russian tea. It has an incense like quality that speaks of mystery. It is somewhat heavy, but light at the same time. It just takes you to a samovar on the sideboard and glasses of tea in the afternoon.

When will blenders cut back on the clove in Christmas blends? There's always too much and it ruins what surely has the possibility of being a very nice tea, as Jeff has said

If I can get past the smell, I'll rate this. To me, it smells like cat spray. I have not tried this yet, but I will gird my loins and do so

This has a bit of malt, a bit of astringency, maybe the barest hint of floral. It is a good tea for plain tea drinkers, but can take milk and sugar as well. The Brits are particularly good at blending teas that are always good if not full of nuance or "differentness". Most of the teas of this style I save for mornin...

I think this year's blend must be different as this year's reviews I have seen elsewhere are a lot more positive, as its mine. I found it to be well-rounded, without too much clove. The pumpkin was there and I quite liked it with cream and a bit of sugar. I brewed it for 4 minutes

Oct. 26th, 2010

Thanks to my friend Sparky for providing this one. I didn't know what to expect of this tea. Unlike many American fruit-flavored teas, this tea is very subtle; the fruitiness is not overdone and blends well with the base tea. The base tea is quite weak for a Ceylon, but is also smooth. The fruitiness has a little d...

Supposedly Princess Diana's favorite. This is a very feminine tea that you can't quite pin down. Is it floral, is it fruity, yes, it's really both. It smells divine and tastes really really good. It's not one I spend much time analysing, I just enjoy it. It is perfect for a ladies tea party and it is wonderful ice...

One of my all time favorites from when I first began to appreciate tea. Supposedly the Queen has this at her annual garden party, which I have been unable to attend. It really is just what it says, a blend of Earl Grey and Jasmine that works very, very well and is perfect for grand affairs, as it is smooth and delicat...

I pretty much agree with Alex, but I wasn't that taken with it. I think I like my Earl as is, with the exception of S&V's Victorian Earl Grey. Surprisingly, I think this company's Earl Grey in bags is better

Sadly, this was a dud from first to last. It smelled of chemicals and the taste of peaches and ginger were almost non-existent. They came out better with the addition of sugar, but on the whole, simply not worth it, as the base tea also was not very nice. It may just have been a bad batch.

This is a really satisfying winter tea. I brew it for about 4 minutes with boiling water. At first you taste the mild chocolate and good tea base and wonder where the chilis is, but then your moth warms, as does your tum and you think, aah, that's really nice. The tea is a good base and the rest just adds to the fee...

This is definitely not a tea for everyone. I am surprised that I like it, as I am not too fond of most flavored teas. However, this smells like lilacs and I suppose, tastes like them. It is very flowery, but not at all perfumey or overly sweet or cloying. It is very well done and would be an interesting "second" te...

Ya gotta love lavender and Earl Gray to love this, but it is the BEST I have ever had in this category. Make it a tad on the weak side if it is new, if you've had it awhile, put in a bit extra. Wonderful stuff.

I've only had one pot of this, but was it super! Very Russian, by which I mean it had a certain heaviness that makes you think of old incense, but neither smells not tastes like incense. You can get it on Amazon and it is really worth it.

For tea bag tea, this was quite nice. A fine, middle of the road Earl Gray.It was not too strong or too perfumey, probably one to turn to when you just want something pleasant

Broken-leaf, but not fannings like their English Breakfast. I brewed for only 1 minute. The cup was a very rich reddish brown color.

Aroma is extremely perfumey for an Earl Grey, and rather fruity and citrusy. Smells more like a normal orange than the bergamot orange too, and smells almost candy-like, but almost ...

Harney is one of my favorite companies, as their tea is always of excellent quality. This is a good example, as the tea tastes of freshripe peaches with a nicely balance ginger zing. It is lovely iced and a bit of sugar, while not necessary, brings out the peach even more.

This tea has a fantastic aroma! A truly lovely sweet (but not sickly sweet!) cherry smell. And unlike most fruit teas, which I find tend to taste thin and bitter, the flavor actually holds up! It's pretty over powering actually, but in a good way. If you're a fan of fruit teas, definitely take the time to check this on...

Sep. 26th, 2010

I don't find much difference among the various serious Earl Greys (I'm dismissing some of the really cheap ones with a fake taste), maybe because the bergamot gives them all a distinctive flavor. This one is a pleasant, reasonably aromatic version. Generally, I prefer a stronger, darker tea, but this would be good for...

Bigelow teas always sound fantastic in theory but taste like hot water... they just never live up to their potential (which I guess, to be fair, is not really a surprise considering Bigelow is the type of tea you tend to drink because the coffee is instant and the other alternative in the wicker basket is some kind of ...

I was expecting this tea to be fruitier and more citrusy than it was, but I was pleasantly surprised. Both the bergamot and citrus presence are balanced, and you really notice the underlying black tea. The aromas blend very well. I suspect that this may be due to the fact that this blend uses actual citrus peel rath...

Muscat wine flavored tea... very strange yet intriguing! A fantastic smelling tea, however the flavor itself is a little lacking- not bad by any means but I found the novelty sort of wears off half way through the cup. I got this as a tea sample when purchasing other teas from Lupicia and while I enjoyed the experience...

The loose leaf is larger and lighter gray than any of Teatulia's other black teas. The aroma of the dry leaf is strongly of bergamot, but it is a deep, complex aroma.

I brewed this tea for two minutes using one teaspoon per cup. This produced a bold, strong cup of tea that I think is a classic Earl Grey: very bala...

This is interesting because it's so radically different from Organic India's blend of Tulsi and Black Tea that I almost wouldn't consider it the same style or in the same category.

The black tea used in this blend has some bite to it and is rather tannic. The aroma is deep and malty. The tea definitely dominates t...
