Best with sugar. It’s a very light tasting tea, but I definitely find it needs something to amplify the taste. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a very mellow black tea.

A co-worker showed me this Oolong. She gave me enough to prepare four cups worth. All I can say is, WHERE did it all go? It’s a really nice, and actually light oolong despite it’s oxidized look. All whom love oolong don’t know what they are missing out on. Try it.

I’m not usually one for Darjeeling. I’ve tried five, this being one of them. This one is the finest one I’ve had. The taste is best described as fruity. The website describes it as apricot: I find it tastes like mulberries. The tea itself is quite fragrant, and extremely enjoyable. After being steeped, the tea itself smells wonderful, and has a really nice golden look.

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.

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.

drank Fruity Ginger by Teaopia

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.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Pina Colada by Teaopia

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.

drank Passion by Tazo

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.

Boiling 8 min or more

I have a friend that blends that tea with espresso. Crazy stuff.

Honestly, that sounds ridiculous. I would love to try it!

I’m usually generous in my ratings. I like a lot of different teas, and I can appreciate different blends. I also really enjoy coffee, but tea is my niche.

On a side note, I’m not that keen on sweetening teas. I will do it where I feel necessary however. I usually mention this in my reviews.
