Amazing. Very flavourful tea, you can taste every single spice and it isn’t bitter at all. Affordable too! One of my cupboard staples.
12 Tasting Notes
Excellent tea. Not bitter in the slightest. Though bagged, has very rich yet delicate flavour. The various citruses can clearly be tasted, though they leave a slightly sour aftertaste. Must try Twinings’ Earl Grey now.
First yerba mate I’ve ever tried. Had a very strong taste at first, but it got smoother as I progressed. Tastes like hay. Didn’t feel any energy boost. Still divided, will leave it as a 50/50.

Similar to M&S’s English Breakfast I tasted earlier, very strong and a bit bitter. Drinkable with milk and sugar, but nothing very special.
I’ve tried it twice more, and it keeps coming out poorly every time. Maybe I should make it strong, then add a little milk? I’ll have to keep experimenting, there must be SOME reason people like it…
Brewed for 3 minutes in hot, not boiling water just as on the box. Nearly tasteless, I can sort of make out a tea-ish taste very far in the background. It’s very weak, so I do not even know if it tastes like green or white tea. And I cannot taste any aloe vera either. Pretty bad. I’m getting to hate bagged teas more and more every day.
Pretty eh, rather generic taste. I brewed my first cup for almost 5 minutes, as they recommended. Came out pretty strong, slightly bitter. Didn’t really like it much. Added some milk, made it much better. I could taste the tea through the milk and it was not bitter anymore, but it was nothing special at all. Wanting to brew it a bit weaker, I infused two used teabags (one that I used for my first cup, one that I used to make my mother a cup) for about 5-6 minutes. Came out weak and a bit bitter, but I still drank the whole thing.
Overall, nothing special. Maybe I brewed it wrong, I’ll try brewing it a bit shorter tomorrow and maybe add a bit of sugar (though I don’t like sweetening tea). Or it may just be because it’s bagged. We’ll see.
I had a bunch of this tea that expired 3 years ago, but I still decided to try it out. Very aromatic raw, didn’t seem to have lost much of its aroma. The brew takes long, but is pretty fine, can be drunk unsweetened. Haven’t tried it sweetened, I might – but with another brand.
Certainly better than their Lapsang Souchong, the extra teas blended in make it way more well-rounded. The taste is pleasant and campy. Though this tea is known for its “kick”, it seemed light to me. I sort of felt like a traveller relaxing around a campfire in the middle of a cold forest.
The unprepared tea smells very strong, and I can’t really say it’s pleasant. Once prepared, the drink itself smells pleasing, but the taste is quite different – somewhat weak, actually. One can definitely feel the smokiness, but it is subtle. Not many other flavors, to be honest.
Eh, not very balanced overall, their Russian Caravan is superior.
