I’m trying to clear out my cupboard and force myself to drink and rate all the teas that I’m not too fond of so that I can pass them along to others. This tea attracted me because it’s caffeine free and it says that it’s a satisfying cup and helps curb cravings, so I thought “Oh perfect for late at night when I really want cake/ice cream/cookies/etc. but will get fat if I give in and eat them”. Unfortunately this tea tastes pretty bland in my opinion, so it’s really not much help. The teabags smell sickly sweet to me of artificial orange with a little cinnamon. The tea itself smells much better, like a warm, spicy cinnamon aroma. The tea is ok, pretty dull in flavor with not much of an aftertaste. Not a terrible tea, just not one I am likely to purchase again.

-Round natural unbleached teabag.
-Teabag smells of artificial and very sweet orange with cinnamon. Tea liquor aroma is of sweet spicy cinnamon.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy medium orange color.
-Bland orange flavor with a muted cinnamon finish.
-Best with sweetener.
-Fair tea. No bold flavors.

this one just has a special place for me.
way back when…i started drinking tea because i was trying to be healthy and cut out caffeine, so i ended up trying every one of the wellness collection teas. and this one was the only one of the whole bunch that i kept buying over again.
currently it’s the only tea i own in bags. and now it’s been in the back of my cupboard and i haven’t touched it in months. i bet it will be disappointing when i have it again. if i ever have it again.
ho hum.

i do remember it being fairly bland though. i would brew 2 bags in a 16 oz cup and then gulp it down like water haha

Let me know what you think the next time that you drink it again (if you do drink it again!) I honestly think that it’s more the smell of the dry teabag that turns me off – it just smells so artificial, and then the flavor is so bland – how odd. Usually I love all of The Republic of Tea blends, but this was a big miss for me.
