This is super flavorful – it is primarily fruity, but has some floral notes too. Methinks it is rose, given how much I love rose. I imagine this would be phenomenal iced, but I am happy drinking it hot too. I like how this brand doesn’t skimp on the flavor.

The black/green base is fairly light, but not wishy washy in flavor either. I think I like it, and I think it works best for not competing with the other flavors too much.

This is really, really good. Very naturally sweet and juicy tasting. This makes me happy – it is clear to me that I prefer teas that are either very nutty and warm, or very sweet and fruity, with no astringency.

I like this best iced, even though I think the flavor is stronger hot. It is admittedly pretty weak, but I think that is why I like it better iced. It still feels refreshing to have a light, slightly fruity flavor. I wouldn’t purchase this, but I am happy to finish off what I have and if I ever came across more I would be content using that up too.

This is fantastic – I LOVE peach, and rose, and this is fresh and juicy. The green tea makes it nice and light, and I imagine it would be just as good iced as it is hot.

This is really good, but really hard to describe. It has a little natural sweetness, no bitterness if brewed properly (I brew pretty much all blacks at 200 to avoid this), and a bit of fruitiness. The rest is earthy in a way I don’t think I am very talented at describing, but I quite like it.

This is delicious. I normally love being punched in the face with cinnamon pretty much always, but this kind of tea makes me reconsider that feeling. It is very very apple-y, and the cinnamon is a bit of a flavorful but not overpowering presence. Just like if you baked apples. Mmmm.

This is very fruity and tasty. I have to be careful not to oversteep, because it will get bitter if I do, but when I do it right it is a very nice cup.

drank Spicier Chai by 52teas

This is fantastic. I LOVE me some chai, and hate when it is weak. I was a bit nervous when I saw the pepper flakes in it, but it really doesn’t create a ton of heat. A healthy splash of milk doesn’t overwhelm it, it tastes spicy with a little kick. Huge huge fan.

drank Green Rhubarb by The TeaCupany
573 tasting notes

This was very tasty. It was of course green, and had a very fresh flavor already, but it wasn’t bitter. It had that sharp edge of rhubarb without being in your face like RHUBARB. Which I think is best for a green tea. I drank it iced and it was refreshing and delicious.

Wow, this is amazing. Well worth all of the stellar reviews. I am sad that once what I have is gone, it will be the end. I have never in my life tasted a cantaloupe tea…but this tastes very strongly of it, and cream. It is dessert in a cup and I love it. Plus, it is great hot and if it cools down it is juicy and refreshing iced as well.
