My favorite right now is the Trader Joe's Lemur Tea. I think it's called vanilla something black tea, but i refer to it as Lemur Tea cos of the lemurs on the box.

Yes! I have only one bag left and I am heartbroken cause we don't have it in Canada.

The bags I bought are not that great - lots of artificial lemon flavour (I also got mint, haven't tried that yet). Made a nice shandy-like drink with some lager though.


Too bitter generally means you brewed it too long but you can also brew black and herbals together or a little sweetness. Celestial seasonings has really good, naturally sweet herbals. I'm not sure if you have access to hem though.

It's hard to control the bitterness IMO - it's usually fine when it's freshly made, but after a few hours in the fridge is way too bitter.

I tried cold-brewing some Earl Grey overnight, and it's good! Not as full-bodied as a tea that is brewed hot and chilled, but fresh and nice. I'm bringing some to school today to keep testing it.

There's a great tea shop where my mom lives. I LOVE their pumpkin spice with lots of milk! I also love mint tea and strawberry-green, as it's just a little fruity.

Republic of Tea has a nice iced tea blend called Hibiscus Sangria. It is very summery and cooling.
