This has such a nice caramelized smell! Instead of adding sugar, I added a dollop of vanilla whipped cream that I had in the fridge and it really elevated the toffee flavor. This was a nice hot cup of creamy caramelized goodness.~

This is a sample that shmiracles sent me a while back but I never got around to making a tasting note. I’m already craving another cup! Thank you :)

Flavors: Caramel, Toffee

This tea smells like Pine-Sol.

Does it taste like Pine-Sol? That, I don’t know but what it does taste like is a hot cup of lime peel. If you love the taste of citrus peel and the clean scent of disinfectant cleaner… you’ll love this tea.

Flavors: Lime

For some reason this reminds me of a banana flavored SwissMiss mix and strangely, I like it.
This is a tea that I’d buy and leave out for guests who aren’t regular tea drinkers. It’s good but not complex and a flavor that I think a lot of people (I know)would like.

My personal preference is to steep two bags per cup – I find that most teas from the Republic of Tea seem to taste better that way.

Flavors: banana, Chocolate

This is a spot-on Root Beer flavor! Very tasty~
I had it warm and it was good but not as good as it is iced (there’s just something about hot root beer that bothers me). The creaminess that I associate with Root Beer Floats isn’t as prominent but you can always add cream. Also, sweetener isn’t necessary but it does make the idea of drinking Root Beer more believable (and enjoyable -especially iced).

I love it when a tea tastes like it smells and this is one of those teas! It’s very fragrant and tastes tart yet sweet like a piece of candied fruit.

Thank you for adding this to the tea box TeaTiff!

A toasty tea which reminds me of Genmaicha. It’s roasted buckwheat vs. rice which I seem to like better for some reason. After adding honey, this tea tasted a lot like Honey Smacks cereal.

You found a toasty tea that I like NayLynn, thank you for sharing this in the TTB!

drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
72 tasting notes

Let me start by saying that I’m actually a fan of this tea… minus one caveat; the smell. The good news is that the smell goes away completely IF you add creamer. With sweetener and creamer, it tastes like juicy mango with sweet cream. It’s a Mango Lassi without the tart bite (sourness) that comes with yogurt.

Ok, so I was reluctant to post what I think this smells like, but I feel that I should add it in case someone orders it and is really disappointed… (IMO) it smells like cat spray. There, I said it. Just add creamer before you try it for a better first impression.


Hubby and I find we have that same reaction to a lot of peach scented things… So glad we agree not to bring any of them into our home. I’m afraid I might not have been as patient with the tea as you were in trying creamer to see if that helped. Glad it worked for you, sounds like it made it enjoyable.

I’m afraid I’ve been a little fearful of peach & mango teas for he same reason, but so far I have been pleasantly surprised.

Smells like Christmas but tastes like Thanksgiving.

What I mean is that it smells fresh and crisp which makes me think of winter. The blend has the same berry and cinnamon aroma that I associate with the holidays…possibly because stores always set out the cinnamon pine cones and dried fruit garland near their entrances. Flavor wise, the cranberry and cinnamon are the most distinct. This tastes better with sweetener but it still feels like it’s missing something…
