This tea is supposedly green.
Yet, the leaves are black, and the infusion is amber.
It tastes very artificial. That’s about all I can say. Drinkable, but nothing that I’d love to have all the time.
As far as store brand teas go, this is pretty good.
My nose and taste buds tell me that this tea comes from the Yunnan region. The aroma and taste have that artificial feel to it; certainly, I don’t feel very tropical while drinking this. The color is a very light yellowish green.
It’s flavored with lemon and orange peels, as well as “flavoring and aroma”, whatever that is. I don’t quite detect those over a very flowery taste. Nevertheless, this tea is pretty good and I would drink it if I had nothing else to drink.
Good for two steeps – one for 3 minutes and the other for 1.

This tea will punch you in the face with its flavor, and it hurts.
Let it be known that this tea can be quite good if you enjoy a very creamy, full tea. There’s absolutely nothing subtle about it. I certainly detect the “cream” part of the name, but no dryness. It is very sweet, to the point where I couldn’t even finish my mug.
The aroma and taste are quite different, too. The former reminds me of lingonberry porridge, for whatever reason. The latter is like drinking a mixture of sugar and cream with a hint of vanilla. It’s very good if you like that sort of thing, but I prefer more subtle flavors in my tea.

This tea is probably an acquired taste.
It tastes very milky, in a way. I got the more fermented version, and can definitely taste that, too. Even through multiple infusions, the taste was far too overwhelming for me. It wasn’t so bad that I had to pour it down the drain; this tea does what it set out to do. I simply don’t like it too much.
This is the perfect solution for someone who doesn’t want to bother with tea pots. It holds 12 ounces of tea (or whatever other beverages you might put in it), and is all-in-all well-made.
The double-walled glass is incredibly nice to look at – it’s as though the tea is suspended in the air. Beautiful. It also doesn’t get too hot to hold, even if you pour boiling water into it. I personally dislike cup handles, so this is perfect for me. The double layer keeps your tea hot – or cold, if that’s your thing!
The plastic mesh filter it comes with is incredibly well-made. Quite easy to clean, too.
The plastic cover, too, is very nice. It keeps the tea hot. I had some recently brewed black tea in this thing, put the cover on it – an hour later, it was still nice and hot. As a plus, you can put the filter on top of it so that things don’t get messy.
It’s available in several colors. I myself got a white one.
I did not expect this tea to actually smell and taste like what the name would indicate. Yet, somehow, it does.
This tea leaves an incredibly nice and fresh aftertaste, and is an incredibly pleasant experience as a whole.
The first time I smelled this tea, I fell in love.
This tea, a flavored green rooibos, is the perfect tea to cheer one up on a cold winter day. Its flavor and aroma are reminiscent of the summer. The taste is sweet, but not sickly sweet. It leaves a nice, fresh aftertaste that lasts for quite a while. Quite possibly my personal favorite out of all rooibos teas I’ve tasted.
I certainly did not expect this tea to have the sort of punch that it did. The chili drowns out all hints of orange – this can be a good or a bad thing, depending on your taste. My throat was burning for 10 minutes after drinking this, and I only steeped it for 8 minutes – the minimum recommended amount.
Don’t let the sweet aroma of this tea fool you. I found this quite difficult to drink on its own; indeed, it might be best to maybe have some yogurt or white bread to go with this. Then again, if you’re used to spiciness, this is a perfect beverage for a cold day.
The label claims this tea to have a taste reminiscent of mandarin oranges. I, however, couldn’t quite detect that. There was maybe a very subtle hint of those behind an overwhelming aroma of fish, which persists in taste.
I tried steeping the tea leaves in a few different ways, but always ended up with the same result – maybe stronger or weaker on occasion. I very much prefer sencha.
The color is a very deep amber, more reminiscent of rooibos than black tea. An incredibly beautiful sight.
The aroma of the tea leaves is much stronger than the flavor. The infusion itself smells quite sweet and inviting, yet subtle. The taste is quite similar – I imagine that this would make an excellent iced tea. As the mango pieces are quite large, the taste can sometimes hide under the tea leaves. This is an excellent basic tea for any friend of flavored black teas.
