Peppermintplant shared this one with me. Out of the package it smelled something like a root beer float. Only better. Brewed, I found the scent to be heavenly, intriguing. I was so excited to taste this one I almost couldn’t sleep the night I got it. Why didn’t I try it the night before you say? I was afraid the caffeine would keep me up. That was an awesome plan.

Oh, the tea! It tastes like childhood memories of rootbeer floats on a hot summer night. It is a tricky tea, first fooling you into thinking it is a mere black tea. Until the magic starts. The sharp rootbeer flavor took me by surprise until the subtle vanilla notes made the entire experience worth the sleepless night. All of that was from the first sip! This tea is going to be fun to try iced and sweetened.

Thanks to Peppermintplant for giving me some of this! I found the scent very pleasant out of the tin and after it was steeped. It probably could use a bit of honey but it really was a nice tea. The pomegranate was really strong, but in a good way.

No, not yet. I would love to, but I left it at work. I guess I need two tins.

The smell of this tea reminds me of almond cookies: sweet and inviting. What makes it even more interesting is that it tastes like it smells. It has a very smooth feel, no bitterness at all.

I left this one unopened for a very long time because I thought I wouldn’t like it. I made a cup while cooking dinner. As I stirred the pasta, I reached for the tea. It literally caught me by surprise. A pleasant surprise. This tea would be amazing with a pastry! Huh, maybe that is what I will make for dessert.

Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

I had the opportunity to taste this one thanks to PeppermintPlant My first sip reminded me of pineapple. I was intrigued. I really enjoyed the lightness of this tea. I too am not usually a fan of green teas but this one was really unique. It smelled very much like hay and grass before brewing but became much more citrus like in the cup. This one is going on the Christmas list….

There is something about this tea that keeps me coming back. It is by far my favorite “plain” black tea so far. As long as I have some of this in my cupboard, I will be happy.

I have tried this one a few times and figured out that I really do like it. I drank a cup today at work in the morning. I thought, “Chocolate for breakfast? Why not?” The chocolate scent is just enough, more like cocoa than chocolate. I enjoy that the chocolate is a secondary note to the clean taste of the black tea.

I still love this tea! As it cools, it gets more spicy in flavor. It will be a sad day when I run out of it.

The aroma of this tea really didn’t strike me as unique. It just smelled like black tea. In the cup, it had a amber orange color, reminding me of a cinnamon color. I don’t know why, it just does. The first sip tasted a little bit sweet to me, and malty. As it cooled, the flavor was very mild. There is one very impressive factor; It is incredibly smooth. It doesn’t at all taste like any other black tea I have had but I felt it was still not enough to set it apart from the other teas I have tried in the past. I will definitely try this one again, it is a good tea, just not my favorite.

I love to bake and naturally tea goes well with all things yummy. I have recently discovered the world of tea snobbery and cannot escape. I look forward to the warm, happy cups of tea that I make at the end of busy days.
