I though I would do a tea review

5/10 My work tea : not bad and free, just need to train the people who make it
6/10 Breakfast tea : Proper tea
6/10 Twinings Lady Grey tea : Very citrusy tea and ok with milk if you like it that way.
10/10 Tetleys Earl Grey and vanilla tea : My favorite tea, drunk with milk, the vanilla gives it slightley sweater flavour
8/10 Blackberry & Nettle infusions : Full flavored and good but stays a little in the mouth after you have finished
4/10 Blackcurrant, Ginseng & Vanilla infusions : Gets in your mouth and stays there
5/10 Echinacea & Raspberry infusions : a little too sweet
6/10 Camomile & Spiced Apple infusions : sometimes lacks flavour
2/10 Pure Camomile infusion : Did nothing for me
3/10 Camomile, Honey & Vanilla infusions : too much did not like, perhaps good if you have a cold
3/10 Lemon & Ginger infusions : Ginger and lemon are very bitter flavours, perhaps better with a bit of sugar
8/10 Strawberry & Mango infusions : A nice sweet drink, very pleasants
5/10 Peppermint infusions : One to drink when you need it.
8/10 Melon & grape infusions Limited Edition : Very melony my current favorite infusion
7/10 Cherry & Cinnamon infusions Limited Edition : Not seen since Christmas, I enjoyed it then
8/10 Raspberry & Rose infusions Limited Edition : Another nice sweet but not to sweet drink
6/10 Pear & Apple Green tea : If you have no milk, need caffine, the flavour is subtle but pleasant
6/10 Orange & Lotus Flower Green tea : Same as above really
3/10 Jasmine Green Tea : Not keen, drinkable but not for me
5/10 Cranberry Green tea : Not quite in the same league as Pear and Apple, Orange and Lotus flower

Anything rated 5 out of 10 and above I will drink again and be happy.

Teas I want to try
Pineapple & Rooibos
Twinings tea with Vanilla & Coconut
Twinings tea with Orange
Twinings tea with After Dinner Mint
Twinings tea with Rose
Gunpowder just because of the name, although its a strong pure green tea, so I might not like it.


  1. That is some list of teas... and somewhat telling I think that I have tried every one of those that you have.

    On your to try list, I can vouch for Gunpowder. It is a green tea with a kick to it. One to drink when you need some serious caffiene.

  2. Yep its telling since you got me started especially with the Earl grey and vanilla, I dread the day Morrisons stop selling it.

    So what have I missed? and what do like that I don't?

  3. not a big tea drinker myself, got to have the coffee, and none of that instant crap pure italian lavazza espresso, in latte form. But when I was little my fav tea was Red Rose and american brand, just a normal tea, but we used to get this one brand of cinnimon tea that was devine, and also stripped paint, but can't seem to find it anymore *sigh*

  4. Tea that strips paint does not sound that healthy.

  5. vanilla n coconut sounds very interesting, let me know when you get hold of some!
    Meridian, I'm guessing as the tea stripped paint, maybe why you can't get it anymore ;-)
