Yum! This is definitely chocolate and strawberry. Sweet with a bit of black tea in the background. Thank you Lori for letting me try this.

Big big thank you to lori for this one.
I have been waiting anxiously to try this tea.. and happily, I did this evening! I tried the tea without any milk or sugar just to see how it was on its own. Delicious. I love the flavors! It seemed to be a smooth black tea taste with just a bit of natural sweetness and almost a bakery-type flavor at the end. The black tea was not overpowering or bitter (even without sugar!). I’m sure it would be even MORE rich with milk and sugar. I almost don’t want to spoil it with additions! This cup was like nothing I have tried. It has a really mellow and complex taste. Very yummy. Definitely excited to drink this one again and again. I’ll have to purchase this!

Yummy! Thank you to Jaime for this one. :)
This is delicious. It reminded me a bit of American Tea Room’s Extreme Vanilla. I wouldn’t say that I could taste any of the individual caramel or the apricot flavors, but more of just SWEET + green tea. Really very tasty!

I normally love rooibos tea blends from Republic of Tea. I was really excited to try this flavor since it seems so appropriate for fall. The flavors are just uneventful for me. The chocolate and the rooibos seem to clash a bit (more rooibos than chocolate, for me) & I don’t really detect the ginger, but something not very pleasant. It’s not bad… just not as flavorful or tasty as I expected.

I, like Jaime, was really excited to try this tea. The thought of rooibos + the flavor of red velvet was just too marvelous to pass up! This is my second cup of this today.. and I’m trying to get a grasp on the flavor. It does brew to a pretty red color and still has that distinctive wood flavor rooibos always seems to have. The chocolate scent reminds me of a scratch-and-sniff sticker from my childhood. It’s not completely artificial, but is on the border of being so. The flavor is sweet and balanced with the rooibos. I do very much like this tea and think it’s quite yummy.. but I wouldn’t necessarily call it red velvet chocolate. There are moments when I think “yes! That’s definitely it!” but it keeps slipping away. There are layers of chocolate, almost a berry tone and the rooibos. Overall, a very nice cup. Lots of flavors to keep your tongue occupied and your belly happy!

This is exactly what I want in a fall tea. Love the cinnamon and the apple. I find that the spice/cinnamon is prominent, but that it’s balanced with the apple or sweetness. This is a great, sweet tea without the need of sugar or honey. I admit that there is a strange aftertaste.. and I’m not sure what that is. I’m too distracted by the other flavors, though. Perfect for this time of year!

This cup of tea is decent today. I needed something different.
A bit drying in the mouth, but the flavor is smooth & definitely coconut. I’ve been trying to stay away from Golden Moon ever since my disaster experience with their honey pear. A good, drinkable tea. I don’t think I’ll purchase this, but it’s pleasant tonight.

Lori

Good description-it does have a dry flavor…

Yummy tea! Almost sweet by itself. I love this with some sweetener and a splash of milk. This is a delicious tea to have in the morning or afternoon.

I thought that I would enjoy this tea more… it smells just like hot apple cider, so I was expecting something much more flavorful. The taste is there.. it’s just, quite soft and not as pronounced as I would have liked. I’m also tasting more of the other ingredients and less of the apple. Good, but not great.

Jaime

My favorite was to drink this was to combine it with a bag of unflavored green tea. I’d let the green steep for 3 minutes and this one for 10.

Jaime, did you taste a bunch of apple or cider at all?
I’m wondering if maybe I missed the point of the tea by expecting cider notes… instead of the flavor as a whole. I want so much to like this tea more!

Jaime

I don’t remember much about it, but I do remember thinking it was rather weak. It never smacked me in the mouth and let me know it was apple cider. I almost bought another tin of it though, because I remember taking the last bag out and sadly staring into the empty tin. It was one that grew on me, I think.

I was excited to try this since I love Republic of Tea, but I’m not a fan of this one. The smell was delightful, almost like vanilla ice cream. The taste is not good. There is a definite taste of black tea, but the sweetness is a bit artificial? Gross? Whatever it was.. I dumped this cup.
