The idea behind the flavour combination is lovely- green, white, and vanilla. The white tea in this seems to come out a bit bitter and not very distinct as a note in the brew. I wish that this sencha (which seems to be used in many Rosevear Tea blends) wasn’t always used for these flavoured teas- I find it to be pretty boring as it would not be able to stand on its own. I really do like the vanilla flavouring in here. It gives a nice sweetness and ties the other flavours together.

Too bitter for my taste. The spices in this blend are hidden by the bitterness of the black tea.

The black tea in this brew is a bit dull in flavour and can only really be savoured on the finish. The bergamot is only slightly detectable

Really nice mix of flavours. Grapefruit flavour is very authentic-tasting and pairs well with the green tea. The green tea is very mild but still detectable with a slight vegetal edge. The grapefruit flavour blooms at the end of the sip and lingers for a sweet and fruity finish.

Vegetal medicinal savoury notes which reminds me of a nettle tisane. Very unique flavour. I feel this brew is asking for more spices to be added or to have stronger notes of the anis seeds, peppermint, or verbena. There is the lightest hint of peppermint at the end of the sip which lingers on the tongue.

Great combination of flavours. The green tea pairs very nicely with the spearmint. There is a slight dull bitter edge but I think that is just part of the characteristic of the gunpowder tea. I really appreciate being able to taste the green tea properly in this blend- nice to see the actual tea able shine in this brew. The slight savoury smokiness of the gunpowder lends a very nice quality.

Flavors: Smoke, Spearmint

Great combination of flavours with the orange, vanilla, and rooibos. I am very impressed that the hibiscus is expertly-blended (not overpowering) in this brew and gives an authentic citrus feel. This would probably be amazing as a cold-brewed beverage.

Flavors: Orange, Tart, Vanilla
