Drank this when I was on the road earlier today. The water at the gas station was too hot but the tea didn’t turn overly bitter and the added citrus was nice and refreshing.

I drank this at a coffee shop where I had lunch. It makes a delicious chai latte with a spicy but pleasent flavour, the cardamom and cloves being particularly prominent. It’s sweetened but not too much, certainly less so than the Starbucks version.
It’s nice to have a black tea that I don’t have to dump a ton of milk into once and awhile. It makes a very fragant cup and for once the flavours advertised are easy to discern. The orange and vanilla espeically combine to make a great cup of tea.
Lightly tart and fruity, plus I love saskatoon berries.
Drank it with 1% milk and and it takes the edge off the spices. I think It would make a nice traditional-style chai latte.
I’m not impressed with the company when they say on the package of a green tea to steep for 5 minutes in boiling water. I steeped it for less time and with cooler water and the tea still ended up tasting bitter. In addition, the jasmine smells and tastes perfumey in an artificial sort of way. Next time I’ll bypass this tea, bleh.
A little bit sour for my liking, but I love anything that has cherries in it.
A decent, robust E.B. nothing overly special but good for a wake-up in the morning.
Leftover from my mother’s Christmas tea stash. The mint isn’t too overpowering and it has a nice hint of vanilla sweetness to it. Not really tasting the green tea much, but whatever.
Not being a huge licorice fan I was a bit dubious about this one but it’s actually quite nice. The licorice lends the tea a sweetness and its flavor is quite natural and not overly pronounced. I wish I could taste the other ingredients a bit more though, maybe I need to steep it longer.
This is a pretty weak and uninspiring tea, I guess I’ve been spoiled by better quality ones.
Fresh mint with a hint of warm, almost malty cocoa. It’s interesting that I seem to taste the mint and chocolate one after the other instead of both mixed together. Anyway, anything that has chocolate in the ingredient list is always a plus.
I drank this straight without any milk or sugar and it cleansed my palate nicely. It’s a fairly mild chai, good for people who don’t drink this type of tea often.
The lemon sort of takes a backseat to the ginger, but it’s still a good cuppa. It went very well with a sweet dessert.

A pretty standard-tasting earl grey, although certainly better quality than most of the stuff you’d get at the grocery store.
The tea bag smells good enough to eat right out of the package. The Ceylon masks the taste of the rooibos for the most part – not that I mind, rooibos by itself is too tart for me. The caramel and vanilla are a nice little aftertaste, not overpowering but definitely there.
A very mild black tea with little of the bitterness I tend to associate with other black teas. Tastes fine without milk.

Tried it with milk, it’s decent and the chocolate/carob sweetness is a bit more pronounced, but it still smells more exciting than it tastes. A bit underwhelming.
The re-steep is pretty weak and watery, I guess that’s the downside of bagged tea.
This tastes sweeter and less peachy than what I remember. Hmph.
Not bad for a tea that’s pretty obviously made out of tea dust and fannings. The smell is an interesting mix of apricot and a faint ‘toasty’ smell, which I don’t think is characteristic of white teas. Taste is smooth and there’s no bitterness. The hint of apricot is pleasent and not too artifical-tasting.
