Very relaxing evening tea. Subtle fruit flavors of lemon and lavender with a hint of mango. Just the right balance between these flavors makes for a great alternative to chamomile. Holds up well for re-steeping.

The smell, like the flavor, is very subtle and unassuming. I have found this to be one of the more underwhelming teas from the tea forte sampler. The lemon is so muted that it’s challenging to taste, and typically lemon flavors are right up front. It certainly isn’t a tart tea, but the taste is slightly above the neutrality of water.

It’s apple! Sweeter than other apple spice teas I have tried. A solid robust fresh tea that does not taste artificial.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Pepper

Very well balanced tea between the cherry and raspberries. You would think it could be overpowering or too sour, but I did not find that to be the case. Very nice finish and lingering flavor on the palate

Not my favorite from the tea forte family I have tried. A little too bitter for my taste. For me the orange was challenging to pull out from the blend, mostly overpowered by a more bitter pomegranate or cranberry flavor.

Subtle and clean. The lemon does not overpower the lavendar. Well balanced with lavender notes on the initial taste and lemon essence on the finish. However, not as bold as I had hoped for. Would prefer more of a punch from the lavendar.

One of the better greens at this price point and at this location that I have had. Not too earthy, taste like a standard green tea with a lingering aftertaste.
