Just like the dessert!

I love this tea! It is just like the original dessert, but without the calories..! And also really nice as an iced tea!



This tea is delicious! It tastes pretty creamy too with the little meringues!


Amazing mess

Eton mess is an amazing tea hot or cold. I love it cold brewed but great anyway!! Definitely recommend it.



Absolutely love this tea! Another review said it tastes like a melted fab ice lolly. It really does! Can't recommend it enough.


Lovely summery tea

This is definitely in my top 3 Bird & Blend teas, not only because it tastes and smells delicious, but because it is super versatile! I love it hot, as a latte, cold brewed with water or oat milk, and also added to ice lollies... The options are endless! :) It has a really fruity taste but also tastes quite creamy, just as you’d expect from an Eton mess tea! Will definitely be buying again!


Summer in a cup

Lovely, sweet and fruity. Hot or iced.


Strawberry dessert

Delicious, sweet tea, which can be perfectly used in many different forms (cold, hot, latte, with lemonade and etc). Perfect for Summer!


Cold brew perfection

This is delicious, a liquid dessert! I enjoy mine child brewed into milk - Eton Mess Milkshake


Strawberries and Cream!

The fruity strawberry scent is strong as soon as you open the pack and that definitely translates to the flavour. A great strawberry flavour but also a certain creamy aftertaste that gives it that dessert vibe. It's great as an iced tea but I feel the creamy-flavour comes out stronger when it's hot.


Summer in a cup

It always amazes me how spot on they can get the flavours. I thought this may just taste the same as other strawberry teas but on top of the strawberry you can actually taste the meringue and not just as sugar (you’d have to taste it to understand). I think I will try this over ice this summer


Beyond expectations

I was a bit worried when I could smell strong strawberry flavour as it usually means I can't taste it in the tea at all. However... this tea is absolutely amazing. Quickly became one of my favourites! Love it, no jokes!


What a pretty mess

This one really shocked me. I had put off trying it because I doubted how much it would taste like a dessert, fruit blends can sometimes turn out a little bland. But I have to admit I was completely wrong about this one. The amount of strawberry in this blend is just delightful. It's sweet and moreish and just everything you need in a tea. I wish we had this all year round.


Best iced tea ever!!!

Our children LOOOVE this tea in summer cold brewed, they even don´t miss sugar - healthy and delicious! And when it´s cold outside, this tea give you a glimpse of summer. We love it, warm and cold!


Nice fruity blend for cold brew

This smells really sweet when you open it but it looks really good and makes a really nice cold brew, especially when mixed with sparkling water. Wasn't too keen on it hot though - didn't taste quite right.


Did you love Jelly + Ice Cream? Or strawberries & cream? Try this!

I was intrigued with this because I thought it sounded similar to my beloved Jelly + Ice Cream blend (all the best blends are never in the permanent collection -- I'd love it especially if it didn't have coconut to ruin faster). This one is mostly fruity goodies and hibiscus, rather than the rooibos base for Jelly + Ice Cream. Sadly, I've never had 'eton mess' though it sounds amazing. This blend is certainly strawberries and cream! I don't think I should use more than a teaspoon, because the hibiscus tends to overwhelm the other flavors. But I love the creamy flavor with the strawberry. This blend might have a little too much hibiscus for me. I'm very happy the licorice doesn't seem to mess with the flavor. It's a nice similarity to Jelly + Ice Cream, but that one can't really be beat.

Wasn’t sure about this but the taste is great


Too sweet

I was so excited to try this one but was disappointed to find it far too sweet, almost synthetic tasting. Shame.


Best iced tea

I bought a 50g bag in store and then had nearly finished it two days later from making so much iced tea with it. I was a little obsessed. Went straight online to get a full 150g pot!

A nice fruitiness to it and then you can really taste the meringue! Also makes a great flavoured lemonade. One of my favourites!


Cold and hot

I love it!


Can't stop the mess!!

Just love this refreshing tea...can't stop drinking...thanks
