If you like super strong flavor, this is really for you. I knew going in that I wouldn’t like it without a bit of milk to smooth it out, and I am glad I did. The tea flavor wasn’t compromised at all by the milk, it was so bold, and it was a great wake me up this morning. This kind of tea isn’t one I would purchase on my own, but I am happy to drink up samples and such, but I recommend it for people who are into a strong morning wake-up.

I realized today that I really haven’t had much in the way of English Breakfast tea before. I realized this as I was trying to think of what to compare this to, and failed. It seems tasty enough – it was bold but not too overwhelming, and would have tasted better with some milk (but I usually try teas for the first time without add ins unless it is chai). A solid choice for sure, but not a personal staple.

This is pretty good but I have to say, I can’t taste the orange or pineapple specifically when it is cold. It does taste distinctly tropical, but the tea is the primary flavor and the flavoring an afterthought kind of taste. Some would like that, but it isn’t the best for iced tea. Will consider changing the rating once I have had a hot cup.

This is really good – I steeped it for a little more than two minutes on accident, and I was concerned it would get bitter, but it didn’t. I don’t have a ton to say, as it is just a “wild berry” flavor, which I felt was accurate enough, and the flavor was strong and tasty. I would definitely recommend it.

This tastes good, but iced, I don’t taste much in the way of passion fruit OR banana. It is kind of sad actually, particularly because I adore passion fruit. Still tasty, but wouldn’t recommend it given the flavor it is supposed to be.

This is pretty tasty if you are looking for something that is reminiscent of milk oolong, but is artificially flavored. I am unsure about the description of this one, insisting it meets milk at some point in the process, but all of my research points to this not really being how milk oolong is made. So far, the teas I have had have spoiled me, and the flavored stuff is tasty and comforting, but not blowing me out of the water. And out of the few artificially flavored ones I have tried, this one is not the best. However, this company has great deals, so it might be worth a sip at some point.

drank Root Beer Float by 52teas

I am amazed, but this smells exactly like root beer if root beer were hot. I don’t think I would necessarily make this cold unless I sweetened it, because the lack of fizzy and sweet upon sniffing something so similar might confuse and shock my poor brain. The flavor isn’t quite as spot on as the scent, but very very close. This one is a must sniff, if not a must sip.

This is light and fruity and tasty – I am a fan of fruity greens, and this one is simple and flavorful.

This is tasty – it definitely reminds me of fall with the hint of cinnamon, but is still fresh and juicy. I could see enjoying this hot or iced. Next time though, I will use more than one teaspoon for my cup, as I found the flavors to be just a hair weaker than I prefer.

I am a 29 year old return-to-college student working on my certification in Early Childhood Ed, who discovered the (incredibly vast) world of tea about 3 years ago. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
