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
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).
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!
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.
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…
