Meh. I purchased it to ice over the summer. I’m not a fan of the flavour either cold-brewed or hot-brewed. There is more lemongrass and hibiscus flavour than there is orange.

I won’t be repurchasing… in fact, I won’t even be finishing the box. I have too many other good teas to drink!

Very similar to their Royal Abkhazi. This one is a lot stronger and holds up to added milk and sweetener quite well.

A vanilla flavoured earl grey. The flavours are delicate enough that it’s delicious without sweetener, just a touch of unsweetened milk substitute

If you’re not careful, this tea turns extremely bitter. My preference is a 1 minute steep, and I like to put in tonnes of leaves and then pour it over ice for a delicious iced tea. Honey or sugar is a nice addition if you like your tea sweet.

Definitely tastes more of lemon oil, or zest, rather than juice.

drank Blueberry Jam Organic by DAVIDsTEA

Tastes like blueberry jam, and is lovely with a little honey or sugar to offset the weird taste of stevia. I love it as a tea latte – the blueberry goes so well with the creaminess milk (or substitute) adds.

I have the one with the flat filter in it, which means that for black teas the brewing time is the 4-5 hours it takes to drink my tea. I usually use it for herbal teas because of this, but if I want black tea for later (because it truly does keep your tea super hot), I’ll make it in another container then pour it into this mug.

Sad thing is I forgot milky tea in mine, and I can’t get the smell off the rubber seals. I think it’s time for another baking soda soak, and maybe a vinegar or bleach soak as well. :/

What’s the flat filter? You don’t have a steeping basket?
Hope you were able to clean the seals!

OMGsrsly

O hai! Yeah, mine doesn’t have a steeping basket, just a flat screw-on filter. Pretty awesome, IMO. Denture tablets (plain ones) are my travel mug’s BFF as they take the smell out of anything.
