I received this tea as a free sample with my order. It's simply delicious! I couldn't taste the strawberry in it, but could taste the subtle hint of lemon. There was no unpleasant aftertaste. A truly great black tea. I've since ordered a tin of it so I could have more.

This tea really sparkles! The flavors are bright and clear, sweet and tart, nicely balanced with the black tea. I normally drink it hot, but it also makes a refreshing iced tea in the summer.This tea is always part of my order.

I usually drink green tea and have never tried black tea. When I went in to try out some new teas and told the lady that I am trying to replace coffee with tea, she handed me this and I just fell in love!! This tea not only smells great but the taste is very smooth and not over powering.

I have only used this in my Mist Iced Tea Jug but, even as a cold-steeped tea, you are enjoying it before you take your first sip. The smell of strawberries and citrus swirl around the lip of the cup but does not become overpowering with the first sip. It is a perfect companion to a warm summer evening on a porch swing. I usually take my iced tea "sweet" (loaded with sugar) but this fantastic mix doesn't need anything. Even the second steeping was wonderfully flavorful.

This tea smells amazing, reminds me of mango or passionfruit tea. It has a wonderful, delicate flavor, not overpowering at all. I drink it hot with some honey.

Very tasty tea with incredible smell. Best tea ever! As a matter of fact, the only kind of tea my husband drinks. Thank you NM Tea Company for shipping it to Ukraine.

Finished gardening (and sweating) in the hot, humid Florida sun and really wanted to iced tea. I thought "why not" with Lady Londonberry? I am now on my second tumbler of it! Fragrant and mellow. Like a fine wine. Another new NM Tea favorite.

Wow. Amazing, bright tones full of playfulness at the beginning give way to a warm comfortable companion in the middle and bottom notes. Perfect with friends on the front porch or patio. Works well with sliced fruit or small sandwiches. Makes me feel like i'm sipping an aria. A truly colorful, flavorful palette in this blend.

A lovely tea. I usually drink coffee but like something different now and then. Even after steeping in my cup for two hours at work this tea was still delicious to the last drop. A traditional black flavor with a nice light natural citrus sweetness.

You know the cliche about not knowing what you have til it's gone----that's how I feel about Lady Londonderry. When I run out, I really miss it. My favorite time to drink this is in the evening. I usually drink it black but have used milk and the tiniest bit of sugar. I'm not good at telling you what I taste, but I can tell you how I feel when I'm drinking it: comforted, content, focused.

Along with Bengal Tiger, Lady Londonderry is one of my very favorite black teas. Bright, clear, a little sweet, this tea has a slight strawberry aftertaste on the tongue that just makes it perfect for drinking all day. I've been known to drink it hot in the morning and iced in the afternoon, and each cup is just as enjoyable as the first. If you are looking for one tea to serve all of your tea drinking needs, Lady Londonderry is that tea.
