An excellent balance between green tea and fruit flavors. Mango can be very difficult to balance and harmonize with other flavors, but this blend does it well. If you love fruity green teas, give this one a try!

A solidly done, sweet, herbal peach blend. Comparable in quality and flavor profile to Teavana's peach tranquility. If you enjoy that blend, you'll love this one too.

An excellent balance between black tea and lemon flavor. Makes for a solid black tea without being too bitter. Be careful not to over-steep! 3 minutes is ideal.

An excellent tart tea! It was great for mixing into blends with other simple black, green, or white teas. Best with a bit of honey to balance it out when it's on its own.

A new favorite flavor of oolong. Both sweet and astringent, it makes for a balanced and calming blend. Even double-steeped, the astringency doesn't become too much for a gentle palate. Would highly recommend for any green tea or oolong tea lovers.

Nutty, sweet, layered, and flavorful, this tea befits the vivacious summer season. A new tea that I tried and was pleasantly surprised by.
Aug 19th '22
One of my absolute favorite black teas. The black tea, chocolate, and bergamot bouquet makes for a delicious blend that goes down smooth and is enjoyable any time of day. Double steeped the leaves sometimes, to make this one last just a bit longer.

If you really love cinnamon and spice, this is the tea for you. Make sure to shake bag or tin before each use, so that the cinnamon distributes equally among each cup. When I was in the mood for it, it was a great treat. When I wasn't, the cinnamon was overpowering and ruined the flavor.

Sweet, light and airy. The white tea compliments the blueberry and fruity flavors expertly. Steep long in a cup of not-quite-boiling water for best results.

When I'm in the mood for it, makes for an excellently balanced, sweet and fragrant green tea. When I'm not, the vanilla can be a touch overpowering. Try it if you love vanilla teas, but want it gentler than a black tea can supply.

Sweet, succulent, layered and vaguely buttery - like a great biscuit. One of my all-time favorite teas, as well as a favorite jasmine tea of mine.
Jun 27th '22
A delicious, fragrant black tea. The orange and cornflowers make for a lovely, soft, fruity-floral note in the blend.
Jun 27th '22
A spicy, pleasant chai with a robust flavor. Contains a good level of caffeine. To get the full body, steep to recommended length of time.
Jun 27th '22
Gentle, soft flavor. Floral and white tea balance each other out beautifully. A treat every time.
Jun 27th '22
Gentle apricot flavor and strong black tea compete for attention in this blend. Good, but sometimes the astringency overpowers the fruit flavor if you steep it for too long.
Jun 27th '22
A sweet and tangy balanced, fruity, green tea. Excellent in any season or time of day.
Jun 27th '22
Tastes like a delicious lemon meringue pie. And since the pies have been in short supply in the store as of late, this makes for an excellent substitute.
Jun 27th '22
Light and sweet, this herbal tea makes for a delightful spring or summer treat. Also pairs well with white or green tea.
Jun 27th '22
Toasty and sweet tea that makes for a tasty nightcap, or a great mix-in with any fragrant black tea.
Apr 17th '22
A new favorite tea of mine! It has the strength of a black tea in terms of caffeine, but the softness and sweetness of a green or jasmine tea. Varied and floral, it is a delightful tea to be drinking at this time of year.
Apr 17th '22
It has the strength of English Breakfast and the sweetness of English Afternoon. A highly enjoyable black tea. Also, an excellent companion when watching the Outlander TV series. :D
Apr 17th '22
A strong black tea with obvious notes of strawberry. I think the best match for the strawberry flavor is still the white tea blend, but if you're looking for a strawberry tea with higher caffeine content, this is a fair compromise.
Apr 17th '22
One of my new favorite teas! So sweet and floral and light, every sip feels like a varied experience. Seriously recommend this to any green tea or jasmine tea fans who are looking for something new.
Apr 17th '22
Astringent and strong, like a classic gunpowder green. More of an occasional tea for me, but when paired with honey it offsets the astringency enough to make for a pleasant, warm, and nuanced green tea.
Apr 17th '22
Fruity, floral, and light, the white tea compliments the citrusy notes of strawberry perfectly without overpowering it. The different added flowers and fruits all blend very well with the primary strawberry flavor.
Feb 27th '22
As rich and as flavorful as promised. If you're familiar with English Breakfast and English Afternoon, this tea is a best-of-both-worlds of those two. It has the strength of Breakfast, coupled with the smoothness and sweetness found in Afternoon. I highly recommend that all black tea fans give it a try. I generally detected more fruitiness and nuttiness in the texture than cocoa.
Feb 27th '22
A fruity recommendation that proved solid. The elderberry added a darker, richer, blackberry-style fruit flavor to the mix (mostly detectable in the aroma), and the rose hips, raspberry and lemon grass paired well too. A bit strong on the hibiscus side though, that flavor ended up overpowering the name-sake at times.

While I'm the not the biggest supporter of maple syrup, I do like it, and this blend brought out its strong points. The apple pieces work harmoniously with the oolong, and the maple is enhanced by the spicy kick of safflower. The crème makes for a smooth finish to this invigorating blend. Excellent companion for the winter season.
Feb 27th '22
An old favorite of mine from the chai collection. Flavorful, aromatic, and lightly floral, the complex body makes for a delightful, smooth drink. Who knew that coconut, lemongrass, and chai, would work so well together?
Feb 27th '22
Rich, robust, and plenty nutty, this blend makes for an excellent dessert tea. Pairs even better with a bite of milk chocolate.
Feb 27th '22
A recommendation that turned out to be excellent. Sweet and light, the flavors are gentle yet flirtatious. An excellent night-cap.
Feb 27th '22
Excellently balanced chocolate, black tea, ginger and orange blend. Makes for a strong but flavorful cup, where no one note over-powers another. Happy New Year, fellow tigers!
Jan 18th '22
The nutty and chocolatey notes are excellent. However, it feels like they serve to mask the mate flavor, rather than working in harmony with it. The notes make the mate seem too astringent and stand out awkwardly. Still an enjoyable chocolate blend, though.
Jan 18th '22
Sweet, light, and airy, while still possessing enough caffeine and warmth to have a full body. A delight every time. Leaves are good for at least two steeps.
Jan 18th '22
Deliciously sweet, astringent, and light, it makes for introspective blend that pairs beautifully with an old, favorite book.
Jan 18th '22
Balances the fruit and spiced flavors really well, makes for a sweet and not-too-spicy drink that goes down easy.
Jan 18th '22
Balances the vanilla and oolong flavors well, makes for a sweet, warm cup. Would prefer it if the vanilla was a little earthier and less artificial-tasting.
Jan 18th '22
Warm, with a diverse blend of spices, it makes for a full-bodied blend that smells like the holiday season and baked desserts.
Jan 18th '22
Smooth, sweet, and delightfully subtle, it adds a twist to basic earl grey that brightens the flavor and makes it very inviting.
Dec 18th '21
I'm always hesitant with ginger teas, but this one strikes just the right balance between the cinnamon, ginger, and black tea. It makes for a sweet, warm tea that's gentle in flavor for a black tea.
Dec 18th '21
Perfect for the holiday season, but also just a great nutty tea in general. Really captures the flavor and texture of chestnut, amazing with a bit of honey.
Dec 18th '21
My favorite green tea. Gentle, floral, but with a full enough body and enough notes in it that it remains complex and interesting. It always smells and tastes like a breath of fresh air.
Dec 18th '21
An old favorite of mine, rich in chocolate flavor and taste, full-bodied and strong, it tastes like raw cacao tea if you don't add any sweetener. But with a bit of honey, its the perfect dark chocolate tea.
Dec 18th '21
Strong and rich, to the point where it can be a bit overwhelming if I'm not explicitly in the mood for it. Still a sweet blend that captures the flavor of butterscotch excellently.
Dec 18th '21
Just the right mix of spicy and sweet, with no one spice over-powering or masking the other. Pleasantly seasonal.
Sep 12th '21
Delicious all around! Appropriately nutty and smooth on the finish. The almond smells distinctly different in the bag than it does brewed - not as sweet to taste, but easily remedied with a bit of honey!
Sep 12th '21
Soft and lightly sweet, with just enough of a blueberry flavor. Won't overpower the pallet, though the indigo-blue color is shocking at first, it only vaguely stains the tongue. What a treat!
