I’m just not as into this as most people. It tastes like lemon popcorn to me. I like it a little better cold-brewed than hot. The color and the color-changing is fun though.

To me, this tea has a very toasted flavor, almost nutty.

The smell of this tea in thebpackage is almost vinegary, but the taste is great when steeped. Very Granny Smith!!

I was thinking I may not like this one because I’m not big into toasted mate. Fortunately, the orange is the dominant flavor with a bit of cinnamon, and I really like it! I better put the teapot away or I will drink too much of it, and it is 10:30 at night. Lol.

The flavor of this tea is mostly red rooibos with a hint of almond. I added some pure cane syrup, and that made the flavor really nice!!

This tea isn’t my favorite, but that is probably because i’m not a huge fan of anise.

This tea definitely has a blackberry tartness to it. Plain, I give it 4 stars, but I give it 5 stars when sweetener is added to it.

While I’m not tasting a lot of pear, I am really enjoying this tea. I think the pear is cutting some of the astringency that white tea can have. Oddly, I have a free sample of this arriving in a package tomorrow.

I’m not really into this one, mostly because it reminds me of the hand soap in the bathroom at Target.

This tea has a mild cinnamon flavor, as opposed to the fiery cinnamon spice, which has a strong cinnamon flavor. This tea is almost sweet on its own.

I love flavored oolongs! The almond in this one isn’t overpowering, but the oolong tea isn’t overpowering either.

I’m giving this 5 stars because it isn’t bad for a toasted mate. I’m not really into toasted mates though. I think it would be a good choice for coffee drinkers trying to get into tea because the toasted flavor is similar to the toasted flavor in coffee.

Very nice basic earl grey tea! A classic that you should definitely try.

I definitely taste more mint than chocolate. I did taste more chocolate than mint for the first couple minutes that the tea was steeping. Maybe 3 minutes would be a good time to get a good balance?

This tea isn’t bad for a valerian tea. It has several other ingredients to disguise that valerian taste. (I have several teas with valerian that are very potent since straight valerian smells like feet!)

The red rooibos pairs really well with the apple and cinnamon. This tea is what o imagine you would get if you combined apple cider and rooibos tea!

How have I not reviewed this tea already? I must have bought it previously as part of a set or with the better tea club subscription. I do wish the peach flavor were a little stronger. For that reason, I prefer Adagio’s peach oolong to this tea.

A nice, light green tea. Not too grassy or nutty, which I don’t love in green teas. I could see keeping this one on hand for a basic green tea.
Sep 17th '20
A very nutty and toasty flavor to this oolong. I love oolongs, but this one isn’t my favorite, possibly because of the toasted flavor.
Sep 15th '20
I love vanilla, and this one is nice for an herbal because the honeybush doesn’t compete as much with the vanilla as the rooibos does. The vanilla rooibos is also a really nice herbal vanilla herbal tea.

I’m not sure how I haven’t already reviewed this since I bought a box of teabags and gave it to my book club members when we read The T girl of Hummingbird Lane, which partially takes place on Yunnan province. Anyway, this is a nice smooth black tea. It is a little different than your standard breakfast teas, and it is nice to have the variety!
Sep 10th '20
Lovely white tea. I do find that approaches a green tea flavor, but isn’t quite a green tea.

I accidentally oversteeped this one, but luckily this is a tea where the berry flavor also gets stronger if you oversteep it. I’m only having a small cup tonight, but I think the leftover cup will be very nice on ice tomorrow.
