YUM. As advertised, tastes like Ginger Beer. Way better than Super Ginger, no worry of your cup tasting of only peppercorns if it oversteeps!!

This is my current go-to tea at work. I’ve been trying not to drink caffeine at home, but it’s kind of necessary for 12 hour work days. I drank it in the summer and it tasted too rich and velvety, but now that it’s fall, it fits the season better.

This is INCREDIBLE. I love it so much! The taste is so intricate, delicate, but not weak. It is literally the perfect black tea blend. Fully and completely dethrones Santa’s Secret as my favourite tea!!! It makes David’s Tea look like children’s play (I still really like David’s though).

I got this tea in a 4-pack of Sloane Teas as a bridal shower gift from a dear friend so it makes this tea that much more special, too. :)

I am slightly ashamed to admit it, but I bought the 36 oz and 18 oz versions of this within days of each other – it is SO dang easy to make tea with this thing!! No infuser to deal with that inevitably leaks over the little lid-coaster onto the table.

I haven’t encountered any staining yet but I plan on giving them baking soda baths proactively to counter that. I love the styling and it’s so lovely to look at the tea when it’s steeping. These make me want to keep making tea just so I can watch it steep!

It’s been a while since I’ve had this. Resteeps really nicely! Nice roasted notes in the smell.

Drank iced. Not really a fan of the black tea + mango combination. I’m iffy on mango most days so that’s not surprising though.

I like Read My Lips better but I’m trying to cut back on caffeine and this is a good substitute.

Man, this is an interesting tea! Each steep tastes slightly different. It’s got some sweet notes to it which I am loving.

Drank iced. Maybe I drank too much of Tetley’s Cosmo tea way back when, but this is totally “blah” to me. The orange and berries doesn’t excite at all. Which is better than being terrible but I doubt I’ll get it again, even if it’s a tea of the day.
