I’ve been drinking this a lot lately. It smells great. I like the creamy orange flavour (even better with vanilla). Makes delicious iced tea.

I had a few cups without reviewing this, oops.

Anyway… this smells so good. Like these chocolate mint candies I used to like. I rather like the flavour of peppermint black tea now. And this is one of the chocolate teas I like. As much as I do like this tea, I kinda prefer the Shamrock mint/ chocolate blend.

Mmm… blueberry. This smells so good! I do love blueberry. The flavour is nice like berries. I don’t even mind the other fruit or hibiscus.

It’s even better with vanilla rooibos.

This kinda smells like liqueur. The flavour is kinda mellow chocolately. I tried this long enough to know it was a chocolate tea I liked.

It smells nice dry. The flavour isn’t much of anything. Doesn’t really taste like gingerbread. Or ginger really.

Ginger works better as red bush tea.

This tea smells so good. Like chocolate covered strawberries. The flavoured is more berry ice cream with chocolate syrup.

I’m picky about both my strawberry and chocolate teas. This one is a win.

Mmm… juice. I mean tea. It smells like juice dry, as well as brewed. The flavoured is citrus and tangy. I wasn’t sure about the green/ black tea blend, but it works. The most prominent flavour is the tangerine.

Doctor Who sipdown. The aroma is kinda chocolatey. It tastes like peanut butter pie. I don’t get much cheesecake flavour, but still good.

I was looking for something like an almond joy. This is pretty close. The aroma is chocolatey almond with hints of coconut. The flavour is a little more like chocolate covered almonds. Good dessert tea.

This was my bonus sample.

It smells so good! Like spicy Autumn chocolate. The flavour is a delicious blend of pumpkin pie and chocolate. Well… mostly pumpkin pie with chocolate shavings. Which makes me want pie.
