Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy was actually a little bit much for me at first but then I grew to like it a lot. I started out leaving the bag soaking for only a minute and then worked my way up to four for the full flavor. The spice in it is really strong but when I sit down with it I think "this is what warm and comfortable tastes like".
Good Earth Cocoa Chai is a new one in my rotation but oh man I love it! You get the delicious taste of hot chocolate without the calories, plus a nice solid zing of chai! It's going to be my new go to warm up drink for the winter.
Bigelow Constant Comment is another really strong taste that I had to get use to. It's got that same kind of nice strike of spice but this one has a very strong orange flavor. I usually like this one in the mornings to settle in because it makes me think of breakfast.
Good Earth Vanilla Chai has been a staple in my collection for a very long time. Sometimes I get regular chai but I really love the way the vanilla softens the chai taste with this one. I would say even if you normally take your tea with sugar, you likely won't need it with the vanilla chai. Sometimes I'll have a splash of milk or a little bit of honey even though I don't think it really needs the sweetening. However, it's a very versatile tea!
Twinings Earl Grey isn't the best Earl Grey that I've ever had but it's pretty solid. I usually leave the bag soaking for only a minute or two so I can get more of an Earl Grey flavored hot water taste. I know that might be a weird thing to say since, you know, that's kinda how tea works, but I can't think of a better example of hot leaf juice. It's a solid Earl Grey for the lazy tea drinker though. They also make a decent Lady Grey.
Now, of course, those are just the lazy teas. I am trying really hard to be less lazy and drink more real tea. That's where ThinkGeek comes in!
I actually picked this set up for someone else for Christmas and ended up changing my mind and keeping it for myself. Not gunna lie, I am super happy with that decision. This tea is legit. Like, super legitimate.
The smell and flavor explodes gloriously out of these teas. And they didn't skimp even a little bit on packaging the best of the ingredients off the table rather than what you get off the chopping floor in bagged tea.
My only criticism is that this tea only comes in these little sampler containers. I realize that I can just order my trucks of tea from Adagio...but then it won't be called PIRATE chai! Or be a Star Trek joke!
In the end I'll probably keep my bagged tea line up for work and continue to slowly grow a delicious home collection that I can be proud of. Before I drink it all. Then my tummy can be proud.
