If you aren’t crazy about green teas but want the healthy spectrum it offers, try this. The white tea reminds me of a mild oolong, nice. The blueberry in these tea bags is bigger in the nose than the taste. But the taste is there. Good light tea, I recommend this.

Good for a tea bag. Peach comes through but doesn’t over power the tea. Ginger is faint.

Yummy like fruit candy. Very nice with both peach and apricot giving a strong showing. The ginger is faint. Uses Chinese black tea and the taste is appropriate, very smooth.
Gonna try blending this half & half with other straight black tea. The fruit flavors are so hearty I suspect a blend will hold up well.

drank Zen by Tazo

From a person who doesn’t really care much for green tea, this Zen is pretty alright. I prefer flavored green teas and drink em’ for the health benefit. But I probably drink 6 cups of black tea to each green one.

This is a decent cup of black tea, nothing bad to say about this stuff. Just a good drinker from a bag. I was surprised because I really disliked the Twinings Orange Pekoe Ceylon tea and English Breakfast by Original Ceylon Tea Co.

One of the first herbal teas I ever drank. Still one of the better ones too. Crisp, lively flavor.

Yummy memories of childhood in this cup. When I was a lil’ kid in the hills n’ hollows of western Pennsylvania we’d dig sassafras roots in the spring after the new leaves appeared. Wash em’ up and cut into shorts. Boil awhile and hot cups of yummy tea. Didn’t know about the safrole back then, but didn’t drink enough to really matter. Pappy’s is good stuff, hot with truvia. Enjoying some right now.

Not as heavy flavored as I expected. Thick mouth feel with a tobacco note and sweetness. Pleasant, easy drink. Good nose over the brewed cup.

This tea just arrived and I’m drinking a big mug as I type. Very nice, in fact as it cooled a bit I find myself taking big gulps! Velvet smooth with a noticeable pleasant aftertaste. Worth the wait for the online order.

Good tea but with a soft, muted bergamot flavor.
