At least the tea tastes better than it smells. There is something in it that makes me question the ingredients. However, it tastes wonderfully light. Best enjoyed hot, or iced with some honey.Faint undertones of white tea come through, the dominant flavor is the strawberry and hibiscus.
60 Tasting Notes
Has a great aroma to it before steeping, and it loses none of it after being infused. Tastes amazing with or without honey. Also, anyone who likes iced tea will enjoy this with 1-2 teaspoons of cane sugar, or a fair amount of honey.
This, is what I call the perfect balance between flavor, and effect. Ginger is great for your stomach, helping promote digestion. Be sure to drink this before or after a really heavy meal, or if you feel queasy. That’s how I first really came around to this one. It’s wonderful in every sense of the word, especially with no hibiscus to make the blend taste tart. Don’t sweeten, you’ll ruin the nice taste you get. Steep to your discretion, my suggestion is 30 minutes to an hour.
Yummy. Normally, this herbal blend is a bit much on my palette. The blend is able to accomplish what it goes for, being a nice refreshing ’’cocktail’’ like drink. I do find that it can be bland, and it is completely dependent on what mood I’m in. Fruit teas are usually pretty awesome, but this one is way to overbearing for me to drink more than once every few months.
This is a nice, and fine cup of flavored tea. It really brings out the best in the time of year as well. If you prefer a mellow cup, I’d got for the holiday green tea Teaopia offers. Otherwise, this one has spices that will evoke most tastebuds. If you like something that’s in the middle of being spicy, drink up. The apple does a number to what this tea tastes like: giving the tea a sweet undertone. It, however is very feint in comparison to the rest of the flavor that comes through.
Pick it up while you can. This will definitely be brewing in my infuser basket throughout the end of this year, and well into the next.
Steep this tea, and it gets some nice spicy flavor to it. This is the only Starbucks tea I really enjoy. It’s quite literally a ‘’sweet and spicy’’ tea. The hibiscus is also an extremely dominant flavor. Not for the faint heart, but for people who like an excellent cup of hot or cold tea won’t want to miss this. Sweeten at your discretion, but I normally would drink this straight to taste everything.
A very rich tasting pu-erh. Teaopia’s little selection of pu-erh left me a bit skeptical, but I’m glad I gave this a try. The taste is earthy, with slight orangy undertones on the first infusion. The true orangy taste comes out on the second infusion. Definitely recommend this to any person who likes a strong cup of Black Tea, and who doesn’t mind something a little stronger than Orange Pekoe, and Yunan.
The tea is also extremely high in Vitamin C.
Teaopia’s best flavored Rooibos. When I first tried this, I was intrigued by the level of flavors going on: you have hints of citrus, mint, then rooibos. And man, I loved it. Before really trying Teaopia’s teas, this Rooibos was on top of my list then, and still is now. Having tried the majority of what Teaopia has to offer: you can’t go wrong with this.
Anyone who likes a citrus “tea” would love to try this. It’s naturally sweet, using a green Rooibos base. The orange taste is definitely the most potent, I find the longer you steep it the better it gets. I did a 2 hour steeping on this Rooibos, and it tasted divine. However, if you can’t handle a sweet tasting tea, steer clear of this.
I didn’t expect much when I bought this tin of matcha. Generally, I make iced lattes out of matcha, generally using Rice/Almond/Soy milk to preserve the antioxidants. However, I must say, I’m quite impressed. The quality of the matcha is just a hint below what I normally drink. Honestly, it’s still really nice. However, I would strongly prefer to prepare this specific matcha powder to make drinks with, and not to drink. I would recommend whisking this matcha for quite some time for the best taste.

This used to be my favorite tea. With a light creamy taste, and undertones of nuts, it was hard to go wrong with this one. Also, it makes wicked re-steeps, and excellent hot or cold lattes. If you have a major sweet tooth like I did before, add some honey to the tea. It makes it taste incredible. This used to get me through some of the most stressful afternoons at work.
Absolutely horrendous. When this tea came in, I made sure I’d be the first one to try it out. Man, I was disappointed. I added honey to it as well, and the taste was like drinking a hot of the same stuff I added to the tea. The tea’s smell, unfortunately also put me off.
A very nice type of Black tea. It gave me hope to actually appreciating black tea again, because I had only the Darjeelings from Teaopia. I can’t stand them, but that isn’t what this review is about.
The Ceylon Teaopia carries is both affordable, and delicious. For anyone familiar with Orange Pekoe, you won’t be disappointed. The tea fully embodies its smell with a light earthy taste when the tea is steeped. Definitely recommended for newcomers to tea, either with milk/sugar. For the best taste, it’s best to drink it without anything added.
It’s a nice heavy cup of tea, and definitely not for the feint hearted. The taste is mildly floral, with undertones of Pu-erh. There is no mate taste I find, and the light fruity smell that the tea gives off comes off as being citrus-like.
I wasn’t impressed. I don’t know if the tea was over steeped, but it tasted like a bitter apple drink to me. I got the feint white tea taste as an undertone. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone sadly. I love flavored white teas, however, this one just didn’t move me at all.
This is an awesome cup. From top to bottom, the cup is a mild fruity extravaganza. One of the things that makes this tea so unique is the fact that the mango taste is prominent, but without actually
being in the tea. The taste of the tea has a light white tea undertone. Luckily, the Pai Mu Tan adopts the taste easily making this easy for those who like light teas. Unlike Superberry White (another one of teaopia’s flavored white teas), Simply Mango’s tastes are easy to distinguish. I strongly recommend this tea to those who like nothing in their teas, an are looking
for a tea that will be both refreshing, and good for you.

A cup I have just finished. It’s strong, and earthy if you steep it for 4 minutes. Now, it’s pretty good for the season, but the tea leaves me with a dry mouth after a few sips.
Fully edible, absolute delishous in a cup. It’s a delightful cup of tart happiness. Even my friends who don’t like tea have been “wow’d” by this delishious herbal tea.
Wonderful! Not for those who are crazy for light green teas like Kukicha. This green tea has a full on body to it, being the best Sencha I’ve tried. The smell of the tea is woodsy, and the taste reminds me of the smell of pine trees.
A nice occasional cup. It’s a very light cup, with a subtle flowery aroma.
This is one of those teas I despised at first. I decided to try it out once. Hated it. The sencha mixed with the berries was one of the most awful things I had tasted. I tried sweetening it, and nothing. It was worse.
Fast forward a few months, I re-smell it, and begin making a cup for myself. My love for green tea skyrocketted, and I decided to give a shokai-based green a shot. I found that 1:30 gives your the best flavor: the goji taste is there, and the sencha taste is there without being overbearing. This one you really need to be careful for. No more than 2 minutes!
