Good, but you need a little sugar in it to make the flavor come out. The blueberry is only noticeable in smell otherwise. Is a nice flavor though. Doesn't have that cough drop taste some berry flavors can get.

This is pretty good. First time trying it not in a blend. Green tea base is light, and slightly buttery. Earl grey flavor dominates. Nice if you want the earl grey flavor with a softer base than black tea. I liked it cooler than warmer.

Temperamental, but good. This tea likes around the 170F range and not to be brewed too far past 2 minutes or it gets astringent. Mostly consisted of savory green veggies flavor, and almost hints of edamame. A good green tea if you don t want the fruity or grassy flavor. Just mind your temp and steep time. @adagioteas

This does taste different from Assam melody. It has a stronger tanning taste with a grainy flavor; good grainy though. I think I like Assam Melody more though: its sweeter, maltier flavor, and is less tannic. HOWEVER, this tea did hold up excellent with milk and sweetener; I increased the leaf from 3g to 4g. It isn t as intense as a CTC assam for milk tea, but still held it s flavor. Overall it would be good from someone who prefers more tannic assam and likes to add milk and sugar. @adagioteas

If you want to try out a lot of herbal teas for blending or before buying in bulk, this is the best way to do it.

Awesome way to tryout a lot of blending rooibos blends and a couple I might not have tried on their own. Definitely a cost efficient way to try out a lot before mixing.

This has been a great way to try some of the black teas used for blending and some I might not have tried on their own as a sample.

I question what the point of having white tea in this at all, since the lemon grass is much more numerous; close to a 2:1 ratio. I don't notice any flavor from the white tea, and seems like all it does is add trace amounts of caffeine. Might as well be a lemongrass herbal chai. That all being said, this is a very nice tea. Lemongrass is the slightly sweet zingy base that holds up to all the spices and fruit pieces added. The spice flavor is sweet and doesn't get too spicy to the point it's overwhelming. Overall a good sweet, zingy chai to have if you don't like darker tea bases or want less caffeine.

I liked it, but my mom didn't as much. Lighter and more floral than black tea. Peach flavor came through well enough.

Got this for my mom for her birthday. Great way to try a bunch a different teas to see what you or someone likes.

This tastes more like watermelon than I thought it would. though it is more of the candy variety. Tart, but also sweet, I can see this working well in blends.

Light, crisp and refreshing with a nice fruity taste. Makes for a great summer tea.

Definitely a good blend. It's pretty sweet on it's own and tastes like jam.

I was kinda iffy about this tea when I bought it due to the lemon grass. I find that lemon grass tends to dominate flavor wise no matter what. This blend was no different. I don't get much of the coconut. Mostly just strong cinnamon back by other spices and LEMON GRASS. It's not bad, but I wanted more of a coconut flavor too. I will experiment with cream and sugar next time.

These were a gift from someone. While they do taste good and are nice if you only want a light brown sugar flavor, they take forever to melt away in your cup. even with hot boiled tea. I can't imagine how long it would take them to melt in green tea. Overall I liked to eat them just plain on there own then put them in my tea and wait 10 minuets for them to melt.

Pretty good pumpkin blend. It is heavy on the clove flavors. Not really much pumpkin flavor but not a bad blend. I tastes better with sugar and a little cream.

Very strong, but pleasant Jasmine. Does not taste too much like perfume. I like to blend it with others than drink on its on.

This is really, really good! It has a nice toasted coconut flavor.
Aug 27th '14
This tea is great! Nice naturally sweet rose that complements the tea base well. It's not too floraly either. there is not weird floral-bite in the after taste. Taste good hot or cold.

This is one sweet tea. You don't even after to add sugar if you don't want. It has a nice sweet caramelized sugar flavor and the rooibos doesn't distract from it.

THIS WAS GREAT! Malty, with some hints of caramel and raisins. Also what I liked about it is that while it is strong, it is not overly bitter or astringent so you can drink it with out sugar.

This is some strong grey. Whatever you do don't drink this on an empty stomach. It has a really strong sharp, but likable, bergamont flavor that is perfect for someone who likes there earl greys strong, or a EG that stands up well with some cream.

I have been eyeing this tea for over a year waiting for it to come back. Now that it has I am glad I got to finally try it. It tastes exactly as I hoped it would. Smooth, velvety, yunnan texture, light coco flavor mixed with woody musk. The wu yi helps by adding the mineral and fruity flavor. That being said I have had high quality yunnan tea, but at this price you can't beat it. This tea is the perfect budget tea for anyone who enjoys smooth rich Chinese blacks. especially yunnan. I can't wait to blend this in my teas. P.S. If you are looking for a rich black tea that you can drink with out any sugar this is the one for you.

I was apprehensive in trying this tea due to the mix review, but I was delighted to find that this was quite an enjoyable tea. There is a nice, but not overpowering bergamot flavor coupled with a sweet sugar-like after taste. I only wish the creme part was a pinch stronger, but it is good for the most part. The smell in the bag is also terrific by the way. It reminds me of some orange creme candy. STEEP TIME: 2:30

This is my first green roobios blend I have had. I'm really glad I sprang for it. The base as nice mellow fruity woody flavor to it, and melds perfect with the tropical fruits. The tea also has an almost slight creaminess to it. The flavor is sweet and floral with a slight tang in the after taste. The passion fruit, mango, and apricot blend well together. I can't wait to try the other flavors.

Very nice tart cherry flavor. I preferred it iced. tastes like warm koolaid otherwise. With a bit of sugar it becomes more juice like.
Jul 27th '13
Very good flavored green. I would say that the base was a Ceylon green. basic and clean. Flavor was nice as well. It has a nice light fruity-floral flavor. It didn't even need sugar.

This was my first time trying Hojicha. I really liked it's flavor profile. It has a sweet grassy matcha taste mixed in with a bit of smokey-roasted flavor. I just wish that part was a bit stronger.
Jul 10th '13
very good White tea. I tried this iced. It had a nice light floral flavor with a strong hay like flavor. Good for the price.
