This smells delicious!!! Like creamy, caramelized earl grey candy.

The taste is overwhelmingly caramel—it’s almost like burnt sugar was mixed into a cup of regular Earl Grey tea.

I like it but I was hoping for more creaminess.

But I give this 5 stars for the scent alone!

I’m really liking these florally teas, lately! I think this is a nice twist on your standard Earl Grey. The rose and jasmine really complement the bergamot. It’s like drinking a lovely soup bouquet. So, If you don’t like flowers in your tea, I’d say steer clear. :)

Also, it’s kind of heavy on the rose and reminds me of Turkish Delight.

This is my favorite from Celestial Seasonings. I wish they had it year-round! Anyway, I love the scent—so malty and shortbread-like. I love the soothing and smoothly sweet taste. And milk thistle is so good for the liver. This is great to drink after you overindulge—very appropriate for the holidays!

This is a nice, light, fruity tea. I really enjoy the combination of strawberries and roses and coconut. I think the story aptly describes how the taste of this tea “feels” – wistful, romantic, light-hearted- like a lace-trimmed valentine’s note. It smells wonderful too—floral and tangy-sweet. But, when I first received this, I overenthusiastically drank several mugs first thing in the morning—on an empty stomach—and it made me really queasy! Too much of a good thing, I guess.

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
