Of the tea in my cupboard (that I bought - non calendar tea) I would rank

1 cream of earl grey

2 orange pekoe

3 blueberry jam tea

4 La la lemon

5 English Breakfast

6 Glitter and Gold

7 Santa's Secret

8 Read My Lips.

:D Why is Cream of Earl Grey my favourite? I hate Earl Grey tea! :lol: But it's sooooo good. :lol:

Has anyone tried the Countess of Seville tea?


Yes! I got it from Ms Smiles for my SS gift (among others). It is really nice. I have my coworker hooked on it!

I tried to stock up on Santa's Secret after work today, but my store was already out of it. I bought a Christmas 3 pack for 40% off, and it has a bit of Santa's Secret in it, gingerbread tea, and sleigh ride.

i have two tins of santa's secret but i don't seem to be reaching for it as much anymore. i would say it's definitely top 3 for me.

i also like cream of earl grey and david's breakfast. i like the decaf earl grey, too. samantha sent me a sample of la la lemon and i really enjoyed it - would buy that one for sure.

i'm mostly a black tea drinker, but mother's little helper is really nice when i want a calming tea.

Oh no! Don't tell me that.... I've been slacking off getting a new tin and now I'm paranoid there won't be any secret santa's left when I go!!!

What's David's breakfast like? Is it English breakfast-y?

i'm not sure... i'd have to do a side-by-side taste test to describe the differences. might be easier if i just send you a sample!

Sipping on Cookie Dough tonight. I forgot how much I like this one. Probably in my top 5. Great desert tea!

I went to Davids Tea yesterday :shifty: and got the Sweetheart Collection and samples of Earl Grey, Countess of Seville, Earl's Garden, Fantasy Island, Vanilla Orchid, Chocolate Rocket.

I've tried Earl Grey, Earls' Garden, and Vanilla Orchid. Of course all 3 I liked. :lol: I never thought I would have liked Earl Grey because I dislike any kind I've ever tried before.

oh and Salted Caramel. I forgot about that one.

I love that you can get 10 g and it's like $2 or whatever.

They had Spice is Right in the store but I didn't like it. I didn't like the taste of cloves.

I ordered online :oops: more santa's secret and alpine punch. Also bought aloha anana (bamboozled) which I hadn't tried before and quite enjoy it as an after dinner tea. I would like it a little less sweet but it's nice pineapple flavor and got a bag of blueberry jam.

I have more than enough right now... so staying away from the Valentine's collection (unless DH gets me smth for Valentines Day... but if no one hints it to him, it won't happen lol)

Ok I tried all my samples (but I haven't opened the Sweetheart Collection yet).

My verdict:

Earl Grey -yum
Countess of Seville - yum
Earls' Garden - yum
Salted Caramel - yum
Vanilla Orchid - yum

Fantasy Island - liked it but wouldn't say yum. I'd buy a small quantity unless I find something I like better :lol:
Chocolate Rocket - liked it but wouldn't say yum. I'd buy a small quantity unless I find something I like better :lol:

Randomly came along this forum and I'm excited to share my love of tea with all you lovely people :)

If you're into mint or feeling under the weather, one of my go to favourites is Organic Cold 911. This stuff works miracles when you're congested or have the flu.

It seems as if you're into more of the black teas (making this assumption based off the ones you have tried and like). A good minty black tea is Mint to Be which has a hint of coconut, or if you're looking for something to aid in digestion Saigon Chai is another one of my favourites.

I could go on forever! What types of teas are you mostly interested in? Green? Black? Oolong? I'm also open to trying out new suggestions as well. Anyone come across any good black teas that have similar effects equivalent to a cup of coffee??

has anyone checked out the spring collection yet? There were a couple that interested me, but I generally find "spring" to be my least favourite collection of the year.

I recently placed an online order and 2 of the samples I got were from the spring collection.

I bought the spring collection yesterday :oops:

So far I tried Blue lagoon (great but has a little smth like blueberry jam -less strong), peaches and cream (yum!) and pom tango (awesome too).

I haven't yet tried grape expectation and cool cucumber

Thanks for the review! I want to try Blue Lagoon and the peaches one. Cucumber doesn't appeal to me, and I had Pom Tango last year and found the juice flavour turned me off.
