Has a lovely floral scent. Subtle taste. I like it.
Jan 21st '18
Pretty good for a fruit tea, if those are your thing.
Jan 16th '18
Good when I had a cold recently. Wish it was a little more gingery, but good.

This is what I look for in a breakfast tea--something bold and full of flavor that goes down smooth and pairs with almost anything. Excellent stuff. Now I need to buy more of it.

I m not a huge fan of almond flavoring, and that s pretty much all I smell and taste in this.
Dec 30th '17
Solidly okay. I think it d be much better mixed with something else--something with an equally light flavor, like maybe a white tea. Would probably make a good iced tea then. As-is, though, it s just okay.

I haven t had Thai tea before, so I m not sure how this compares, but I really like this. Smells amazing, too.
Dec 30th '17
A pleasant tea, but it doesn t have enough lemon flavor.
Sep 23rd '17
Need something like the paper tea filters to brew it in, or you ll end up with ground cinnamon in the bottom of your cup. It s pretty tasty, though. Not as hot as I would ve liked, but I like stuff like this extra-spicy, so you should probably let your own taste buds be the judge of that.

This is such a warm, comforting flavor. Great for winter and the holiday season.
Dec 20th '16
This is a fun and fruity rooibos flavor. I like it!
Dec 2nd '16
Has a full-bodied fruity flavor that compliments the tea. I really like it.
Dec 2nd '16
I really love the way this smells--I could just sit around inhaling its rich, nutty scent. Smooth, toasty, nutty flavor that goes well with rooibos. The only thing I don't like about this is that it's a limited edition tea. I want this year-round! :(
Dec 2nd '16
Has a decent blueberry flavor, but I think blueberry and lighter teas are a better match. Think it could be pretty good iced, though.
Dec 2nd '16
Fairly standard peach black tea. I think I like the ginger peach more, but that may just be me.
Nov 30th '16
I really like this thing so far. The blue one is so cute! Wish there was a bright, sunshiney yellow one, though.
Nov 30th '16
Has a really nice coconut taste that didn't seem cloying or artificial.
Sep 30th '16
I really like this! Spicy and flavorful. Will get this again when I can.
Jul 22nd '16
I like it! The dry leaf smells a bit like yerba mate. Has a complex taste. I was expecting it to taste lighter and more 'green,' if that makes sense, but it's interesting and a bit bold. Has the same smoothness as typical red rooibos.

I wasn't very impressed by this. Seemed to me like almost any other fruity white tea, and for some reason tasted oddly like fake banana to me. Drinkable, would probably be good cold, but didn't wow me, and I probably won't get it again. It does smell good, though.
Mar 31st '16
Smells lovely and fruity. Has a nice, light flavor, with a hint of fruitiness. I like it!
Dec 10th '15
This was surprisingly forgiving of being oversteeped. Has a nice, mildly spicy flavor.
Dec 10th '15
Complex, sweet, and slightly floral. I loved this.
Dec 10th '15
The complexity of an oolong AND the complexity of a Darjeeling? I'm in. This is niiice.
Dec 10th '15
Warm, spicy, with a strong apple flavor. Tasted like I hoped it would. My only regret is that I only ordered a sample.
Dec 10th '15
Tastes lovely and complex, and it stands up to resteeping very well.
Dec 10th '15
I don't think I've ever disliked an oolong before, but I didn't like this at all. The dry leaf smelled burnt, and not in a Lapsang Souchong or hojicha kind of way, and when I steeped it, it didn't taste good. Disappointing.
Dec 6th '15
Much better than every bagged peppermint tea I've ever had. Flavorful, and it has the cool minty feeling that all those bagged teas lacked. Probably should've gotten more than a sample.
Dec 6th '15
Dark, slightly tart berry aroma and flavor that seems a bit more complex than the Raspberry tea.
Dec 6th '15
Pretty standard raspberry black tea, which isn't a bad thing. Good flavor. I really like it.
Dec 6th '15
I like mixing lemon and/or orange extract with plain yerba mate, and this takes care of that step for me! Tasty stuff.
Dec 6th '15
I wasn't sure how well peach and rooibos would go together, but this is pretty tasty.
Dec 4th '15
I think this one's better than the regular Chocolate tea. A lot more chocolate flavor in this one.
Dec 4th '15
A great pre-bed tea. Very calming. I like the warm depth the rooibos gives it, and the coolness from the mint. Will probably buy again when I can.
Dec 4th '15
In general, chocolate-flavored teas are usually hit-or-miss for me, and this one was closer to the 'miss' side of the spectrum, alas. It's not bad, but there wasn't as much of a chocolate taste to it as I would've liked.
Dec 4th '15
I really love caramel and caramel-flavored stuff. This tea has a warm, comforting caramel taste. Love it.
Dec 3rd '15
It's different--not in a bad way. The taste reminds me of coffee a little bit, but not quite. I like the hint of spiciness.
Dec 3rd '15
I like the way the peach flavor and the oolong fit together, and it smells lovely.
Nov 16th '15
Smells amazing. Didn't taste enough like apple for me--would've liked a bit more of the apple flavor to come through. I liked it anyway, though. Edit: After a while, the taste grew on me, and now it's one of my faves.
Nov 16th '15
I've never had currant-flavored anything before, but I like this. It has an interesting fruity taste that's not too tart or too sweet.
Sep 5th '15
Tasty, minty, and I love the way it smells. Will probably buy again.
Aug 10th '15
It's good, but there's nothing really spectacular about it, IMO. I think it'd probably be better blended with other teas.
Jul 2nd '15
Pretty standard fruit tea. Smells great, but it's kind of meh. I don't see myself getting it again.
Jul 2nd '15
I really like this. Has a nice, subtly fruity flavor.
Apr 17th '15
Loved this. Has a great orange flavor that pairs nicely with the rooibos.
Apr 17th '15
Refreshing and flavorful. I think it'll be good cold brewed this summer.
Apr 17th '15
I really enjoyed this. Didn't taste much like pumpkin to me, but even so, I loved the flavor, and I'll probably buy it again.
Feb 14th '15
Sweet, with a caramel complexity that goes along well with the rooibos. Awesome when mixed with rooibos cinnamon apple.
Feb 13th '15
Was a bit put off by the smell at first, but was pleasantly surprised by the taste. Has a nice, light nutty flavor that goes well with the complexity of the oolong.
Feb 13th '15
Strong, lovely apple scent in the bag. In the cup, the apple blends smoothly with the rooibos, and there's a great (light) bite from the cinnamon. Love this. Will have to get more than a sample at some point.
