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
Relatively mild chai flavouring which is balanced nicely with the green tea flavour. The green tea itself tastes rather bland with just a hint of deep vegetal flavour at the end of sip. I really like the warming cinnamon and ginger notes in here and they pair very nicely with the green tea.
This tea is probably best infused at boiling. I remember this tea as being one of my early favourites from when I started drinking loose leaf tea. I love the combination of black tea and peppermint flavour. There is a medium mouthfeel and the black tea is mildly detectable. It is too bad that there are so many artificial flavours in there which muddy the tea and mint taste.
