I am increasing the rating on this one. I can’t seem to make up my
mind about this blend! Tonight it just tastes delicious! Coconut with a hint of cheesecake. A delightful pre-bed cup to have.

This tea has a fantastic banana flavor. I would like for my other banana teas to taste like this! The thing that bothers me, though, is the black tea doesn’t taste very “fresh” or of good quality. The base really brings down the cup of tea.. making it just okay. Thank you to JoeCool for sharing!

This is very yummy! The scent, when steeping, is almost like a cake. I LOVE teas that smell and taste like cake.. and this is the first one that gives off that scent. Sipping: I really am liking the almond and coconut flavor combination. I can’t say that I can separate and identify which is which, but they’re delicious together. I’m tempted to see what milk would do to this.. if any addition would make it more rich. At this moment, though, I don’t think I can spoil a good cup of tea like this. Thank you Brandy3392 for sharing!

I had a cup of tea because it was quite cold out and I needed something warm to carry with me to class. I’d wanted to try this flavor from Republic of Tea and was happy that it was available at a local cafe. It had a great blueberry scent and a sweet blueberry taste. I also like that the black tea wasn’t too strong. It’s interesting, but as I’m tasting more and more of Republic of Tea’s fruity blends, they all seem to have the same flavor element. No matter if it’s a green or black.. and I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. Anyway, this cup was smooth and pleasant to have in class.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia
518 tasting notes

Thank you, Brandy3392 for this cup of tea! It smells like a nice black tea combined with a strawberry candy I ate ages ago. The taste is light and delicate! The aftertaste is similar to a candy heart. There is somewhat of a faint flavor of champagne in the swallow, and I really like that it adds dimension to the entire sip. Really a lovely, fancy and beautiful tea! I want to save this for special occasions, but do see myself drinking this weekly or daily instead.

The description of this tea makes it sound so good! I was looking forward to all of the individual flavors. I’m tasting just black tea.. a breakfast blend of sorts. No strawberry or cream or rum. If you sat this cup in front of me, I would really think that it’s a plain black, not flavored.

drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas

Definitely lowering the rating on this today. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, it’s just that I’m liking it less than my first try. It’s chocolate, but I’m detecting a kind of artificial note that I’m not fond of. It’s tasting kinda gross to me now.

drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas

Now that I have finally found my ideal steeping time for this tea, I am changing the rating to a whopping 90! I adore this tea. The sprinkles, the name, the taste. It’s just great for a morning or afternoon cup. This is definitely going to be on my next Adagio order.. especially since I am out!

drank Almond Cookie by SpecialTeas
518 tasting notes

This is a delicious tea and it’s so very sad that SpecialTeas is no longer around. The scent is of an almond cookie, perfectly spot on! The taste is deliciously nutty, smooth and sweet. I love the bakery-like flavor that is left in the mouth. Definitely dough, flour and sugar. There is also a hint of butter at the tail end! This is a rich, perfectly pleasant tea! Yummy! Now I just have to find a replacement tea that tastes just like this.

Smooth, toasty, sweet and nutty! This is a tea with nice layers to taste while sipping. A very enjoyable, smooth & light cup. Thank you JoeCool for this tea in a swap!
