This is much better than the Tropical Green I had yesterday. This tea is rich and nutty tasting. I am trying to like green teas but its really not easy, I’m working on it. I just need to order some quality green teas. This one is not bad.
This is an ok tea with a tropical flavor but what I’m missing is the green tea taste to go along with it. The tea bag is really huge and I was expecting a grassy tropical green tea. What I got was a fruity tea with not much green. It sure looks like huge green tea leaves but now I’m wondering about the quality of the green tea base. This was bought at T. J. Maxx and was very inexpensive. There were 4 different flavors (15 bags) in the box and I really hope I like some of the other flavors.
Yes, this tea is fannings in a bag but with a 2 minute steep it brews up an eye opening experience. The tea is malty and strong and I really love it.
This is my second go round with this tea and I really like it better this time. It has a nutty peppery finish to it while being vegetal and a little buttery. It is a light tea with no bitterness. The tea bag is huge with actual leaves and I intend to use it a few more times before it gets recycled. I liked this tea.
Fantastic Oolong, excellent coconut taste. It steeps up light in color but the taste makes up for it. This tea really tastes of coconut.
I must say that this is one fantastic Oolong. I’m not very experienced with this type of tea having drank only Harney & Sons Formosa Oolong. The tea is very floral with hints of baked apricot. At first I thought I had used too much tea. One teaspoon unfurled to a large mass of leaves. The tea is naturally sweet and imparts a warmness though out my being. It steeps to a nice golden color. I will be buying more of this tea.

Merry Christmas all
First I have to say that I really dislike gingerbread. I’m not rating this tea for that reason. I don’t feel that my dislike should in anyway distort the ratings for this tea when so many others do like the taste. I could only manage one sip but I do have to say that my granddaughters loved it.
I get hints of all 3 flavors but I really don’t get the ice cream feel from this tea. I’m really not a rooibos fan. Its an ok tea but just wasn’t fantastic for me.
I could smell the strawberries as soon as I opened the package. The tea is very creamy, strawberry tasting with a very nice black tea base. I think this tea is my favorite so far and this is a tea I would purchase which is saying a lot for someone who drinks black non flavored tea as much as I do. I really really liked this one.
This tea smells like buttered cinnamon and to me tastes like it also. I’m not sure where the raisins went but I just couldn’t find them. I really liked the black tea base for this one and I really liked the taste overall. Flavored teas are just not my thing but this tea was very enjoyable.
This is a very interesting blend of yerba mate and chocolate and it works very well. It does have a kick which tea doesn’t have for me. This is not something I would drink every day but its great once in a while. I really liked it.
This is a blend of assam and Kenyan tea which is blended in Belfast. It is a large tea bag without any strings. This is an excellent breakfast tea. I can distinguish both teas in this blend. It is inexpensive ($3 for 80 bags). At 3 minutes it steeps up dark with no bitterness and only slight astringency. I really enjoyed this tea, but then I love strong teas.
A green tea with banana and peaches, what will they think of next. This is a sencha that even I can like. Im not a fan of plain sencha but I love this one. I can really taste the banana and the peach is underlying in the background.
This is a fruity white tea and my first black currant flavored one. Its a very nice tea and I liked it a lot although I thought it may be a little too fruity for my tastes.
This tea does taste like a liquid thin mint cookie. This is a very nice chocolate mint tea. I really enjoyed the taste. I’m usually an assam or yunnan tea drinker so this experience is broadening my tea drinking experience. The good thing is that I’m drinking teas that I normally would not drink. A very nice tea.
I’m drinking more Rooibos and honeybush than I ever have. This blend really works well. I can taste as well as smell the apricot and cinnamon in this tea. The tea is slightly sweet and very mild. I really liked it.
All I can say is that I really loved this tea. When steeping, the kitchen smelled like we were baking. The coconut smell was everywhere. This tea is sweet, creamy, and has lots of coconut taste. Very very nice.
Second steep @ 7 minutes was just as good as the first steep. Excellent tea.
Lots of chocolate taste but I could have used a lot more spice. If you like chocolate tea this may be the one for you but as a chai its not my cup of tea. Its really lacking in the spice department.

This is my first time trying any African Honeybush tea. I am pleasantly surprised. The honeybush is very small so I used one of the bags sent with the teas. This tea has bits of pineapple and coconut and smells of pina colada and rum. The taste is what really surprises you, it does taste like a pina colada with a touch of rum. I am more of a black tea drinker and while this is a tisane I would not drink every day, I really liked this.
This is called Leaf Tea, but it looks like any other tea bag with fannings in it to me. This is a very mild assam tea with no bitterness or astringency. It has a slight malty smell but just doesn’t taste like an assam to me. I would call this a drinkable tea as it has nearly no taste. Its Aussie grown and I would love to try some real leaf tea from there, but this tea just doesn’t make the grade for me. Next time I’m going to try 2 tea bags and see if I can make it a little stronger.
This tea reminds me of kuchika and I prefer kuchika over this tea. I really don’t know what to say other than its drinkable. Its organic and its in a bag. Its just not my cup of tea. I think “bleh” might be a good word.
