I have tried just about every Sailor Mars themed tea on this site, and hands down yours is my favorite. Just amazing.

This tea was excellent, I used it to make Mercury Soda Bubbles Blast from the Fiction Kitchen Podcast and it went great with my katsu sandwich!

Thank you for making your blends! I go through tea slowly so I'm sad that I only got to review 6 of the 18 Sailor Moon teas but they have all been amazing! When I finish them all it will be hard to decide if I want to order individual bags or another sampler!

Perfectly fragrant and cozy, this is the pure chamomile experience and it's such a good deal!

Oh wow. I put off trying this for so long, and I don't know why! This was wonderful. I could see it being a fantastic companion tea for mixing, or an all-day drinker to keep in the fridge. Definitely need to get more.
Aug 3rd '20
I'm a sucker for low-oxidized oolongs, so I jumped on the chance to try this. I think pouchong still is a little more floral and less mineral-y, but I still absolutely enjoyed this.
Aug 3rd '20
I really wanted to like this! I was so excited to get this in and share it with my whiskey-loving dad, but neither of us really liked it. The lapsang read as 'bacon', and it just otherwise generally had too many notes to distinguish.
Aug 3rd '20
I add lavender to whatever I can, and this was a fantastic value. Thanks as always!
Aug 3rd '20
I like this in bella luna blue, however without that lemongrass/blueberry note these flowers can taste really green-bean-y pretty quick. I still think they're cool to have on hand, but I'll probably buy some loose lemongrass to mix in.
Aug 3rd '20
Incredible addition to kick up a blend. A little goes a long way, but it does wonders for fruity teas. Makes your tea a gorgeous ruby hue too!
Aug 3rd '20
Fantastic value for rose petals!! I use them often to make rose limeade, so this was a lifesaver.
Aug 3rd '20
This is pretty similar to regular coconut pouchong, but I really enjoy both a lot so I'm not mad!
Aug 3rd '20
Great little set, lots of awesome flavors! You never find matcha oolong, so I was excited for that one.
Aug 3rd '20
My baby! I got to see this 'dream' come to fruition through Adagio's design a blend contest and I'm so excited to share it with people years later. I bought a little freeze-dried dragonfruit to mix in with mine!
Feb 3rd '19
I bought this for a friends mom who uses powdered lipton regularly... Changed her world! She kept whispering 'how is this so flavorful!?' She may be in her 70s, but it's never too late to start living.
Feb 3rd '19
I really enjoyed this! It's not a bold flavor by any means, but I do quite love it. Fantastic iced tea!
Jan 3rd '19
Try as you may, there's not much in this world that's more beautiful than jasmine pearl green tea. I discussed this with some friends recently who compared it to a beautiful woman dancing in a garden, but in your mouth. If loose leaf overwhelms you, give these sachets a shot! You'll come back for more. They always do.
Jan 3rd '19
This was my first time ever trying tikuanyin despite being in the tea industry for many years! It doesn't disappoint. It's perfectly in the middle between being a floral oolong and a mineral oolong. I could definitely see myself making a staple of this for a mid-afternoon hot cup of tea.
Jan 3rd '19
It's pretty hard to beat a good cup of dragonwell. When I think of Chinese green teas, this is the one that comes to mind. Beautiful soft chestnut tones. As with any traditional, you'll get a lot of mileage whether you enjoy it hot or iced, so this is a great one to have in your cabinet!

Silver Needle is my desert island tea- if I had to pick one tea for the rest of my life, this is it. It's velvety, floral, and has the most beautiful mouthfeel. It's fantastic on its own or as a companion to add health benefits to an herbal. Silver Needle is truly a touch of magic we get to experience here on earth.

I'm amazed how good this is. I mean, we've all had black tea with lemon wedges, right? How different could this be? Turns out, very. It's vibrant with lemon tones, but it's completely smooth and not at all sour. Lowering the steep temperature cut a lot of tannins and astringency as well. This one's a classic, but improved!
Jan 3rd '19
This is lovely. It's a nice mild citrus flavor with a delicate green that doesn't overwhelm your palate.
Jan 3rd '19
I bought this to pair with coconut pouchong (trying to make a dupe for teavana's Blood Orange Sorbet), and it may not be a dead ringer, but it's pretty dang close. The pairing is absolutely incredible, but I love me some blood orange by itself too!
Jan 3rd '19
Oh, this is bomb. Like REALLY bomb. I love both lemon and lavender, and the two flavors pair brilliantly. One of my friends said it could use a touch more lavender, but it tastes great regardless. Ended up coming back for a pound of it once my 3 oz ran out!
May 27th '18
A beautiful ceremonial grade matcha! The tin is much bigger than I expected, coming from teavana. It's great for the price. I've been thrilled with the flavored matchas, and had to spring for the original too. Not disappointed in the least. Absolutely will buy again.
May 11th '18
The box is somewhat smaller than I expected, but it's FULL of little half-dollar sized cookies. They're really good! I've so far tried Berry White and Vanilla Chai and loved both.
Apr 20th '18
Beautiful and classic jasmine with a little something extra; almost as if you were enjoying a baked good. Lovely with cream and sugar as a milk tea.
Apr 20th '18
The chocolate flavor in this is pretty light. I actually added chocolate syrup to mine to intensify it, and it s absolutely stunning. The tin is also much bigger than I expected! Refreshing find when (good) matcha can carry a higher price tag.
Apr 20th '18
Classic Chinese green tea. Lovely chestnutty base, yet crisp and clean. Great for someone who's new to green teas.
Apr 20th '18
I love how light and clean this is! Pear is definitely a mild flavor, but it reads well in this blend. It's not overpowering, and sings well alongside a white tea base.
Apr 20th '18
This is a stellar cup of tea. It almost reminds me of sassafras in a weird way, but the vanilla notes are vibrant and soothing. I greatly enjoyed this and would buy it again.
Apr 20th '18
I bought this knowing I love lavender and was a little worried it might be too strong, but I was thrilled with the outcome. It's essentially earl grey moonlight (a vanilla earl grey) with added lavender. It's beautiful. I've been obsessed with it ever since I tasted it, and even my friends that regularly don't like earl grey have been impressed. Definitely a winner!
Apr 20th '18
Incredible smell. Reminds me of ihop pancakes with a berry compote on top.
Feb 9th '18
It s depressing how good this is given the price for good matcha. Like, my soul aches with each sip in the pure bliss that washes over me. I m a matcha enthusiast as well as loving apple cinnamon anything, so this is truly heavenly.
Feb 9th '18
I'm actually sad there aren't more blue moons just because this is entirely too good to have so infrequently!!! Butterfly pea flower by itself tastes really vegetal, but this doesn't have that problem at all.
Jan 24th '18
I jumped right into this blend and bought a pound without even sampling it, and now I kind of wish I had. I was expecting a deep, dark, warm cinnamony cup of tea with rich fruit notes, but what I ended up with reads overwhelmingly of bubblegum somehow. It smells like it, but it REALLY tastes like it. I barely get any cinnamon notes. A little bummed, but if someone was looking for a bubblegum-y tea, this is absolutely it, so there s a silver lining!
Jan 24th '18
I got this as a gift for a coworker whos favorite tea is Oriental Beauty, after hearing this was a decent dupe for it. We're glad to say it's a fantastic tea!
Jan 24th '18
These are really nice tins!! I'm a now ex-teavana worker (cry) and after my extreme stocking up I was in dire need of more tins. These are sturdy, sealed super tight, and I love the window at the top to peek in on leaves. They're super fairly priced, too.
Nov 14th '17
This was exactly what I hoped it would be. Reminds me of Teavana's old cha yen thai that got discontinued years ago, much to my sorrow!! Fantastic without coconut/condensed milk, I can only imagine it's heavenly with.
Nov 4th '17
I saw this tea’s description and thought it was going to be my new love affair. Smoky gunpowder? Apple cinnamon? Rosehip? Immediately bought a pound without getting a sample... and I wish I had. There’s a creme brûlée addition to this that completely overpowers every other flavor to a near obnoxious point. I was heartbroken. If you like creme brûlée, I’m sure this will make you happy, but for me, this was a huge miss.
Nov 4th '17
Vibrant but soothing! I got this as a gift for a friend with frequent tummy problems. It’s both tasty and functional, from what I hear!
Nov 4th '17
Comparable to those sold at Teavana (which clearly won’t be around much longer). Nice to know they won’t be out of reach!
Sep 20th '17
A beautiful white tea with delicate jasmine scenting. If there was a tea that was a dance in a garden, this would be it.

Genmaicha tends to be a tea that people love or they hate. It leans savory, which casual tea drinkers don't always love. Personally, I found this to be borderline odd my first time drinking it, but over time it grew to be incredibly endearing to have my rice-y beverage! I baby these delicate japanese leaves with a very low steep temperature and time, and I recommend everyone else try it the same way. You'll find a lot more delicate nuances and get better resteepability. Even if you love sweet tea (I do!) I recommend this without. Hot or iced, it's such a unique (and yet, truly traditional) cup of tea that's such a gift for an advanced tea palate. My one criticism is the popcorn addition; I know it's a unique adagio trait but I prefer it strictly traditional.
Sep 20th '17
This tea was so interesting in that I couldn't put my finger on how it made me feel. There's chocolate, orange, cinnamon, and the smokiness of lapsang souchong. It's a lot of flavors to sort out and as such, even after multiple mugs I couldn't decide if I liked it. I don't regret the purchase, but I wouldn't buy it again. EDIT: It grew on me. Buying it again. Hahahaha
Sep 20th '17
Beautifully romantic and sweet. It's so easy to take an afternoon and continue resteeping this, enjoying mug after mug. I'd definitely consider buying this in bulk for the future.
Jun 11th '17
I babied this tea and I think it made it sing just a bit more clearly. The flavor was velvety

You ll get an insane amount of use from these teas, all of which are stellar. This is a fantastic deal to dip your toes into top tier teas from each category of camellia sinensis. I adore this set. Would definitely buy again!
Feb 15th '17
If you're unfamiliar with it, this tea can really knock you off your feet. It's like liquid smoke. I recommend taking just a pinch of lapsang souchong and adding it into your favorite black tea to transform it into a beautiful campfire dream.

This is such a dream for someone kicking a coffee habit!! This carries some caffeine and has a dreamy creamy flavor that makes an excellent latte. Absolutely wonderful.
