This was really tasty, and I bet it would be equally tasty hot (I cold steeped it). That is not usually the case with the flavored blacks, which I usually prefer solely cold. The blueberry taste is very fresh, not artificial tasting at all. I give it a big thumbs up.

This is a very exceptional tea. I normally don’t think a ton of gunpowder greens, as they mostly are just tasty and traditional and can hold up to a few steeps. This one is very vegetal but also smoky and smooth. There is no bitterness, and can also hold up to a few steeps. Very, very good.

This is very floral and delicate, as a white peony should be. I don’t think this is necessarily all the special compared to others of its type, but I would absolutely purchase it if I were getting other things from this company, which is bound to happen. I think on my own I would add a bit more leaf for more flavor. A great, refreshing cup for a spring day like today.

This one was a bit more remarkable than most of the others I have tried so far, which were all good but not necessarily better than other companies. I am really impressed. It is one of the smoothest black teas I’ve had, and it has a really nice rich flavor. However, it really needs a bit more punch of vanilla to knock it out of the ballpark, as the flavor is present but faint.

I enjoy straight rooibos and this one is no exception. It is naturally sweet and a bit woody, and I think it tastes like dessert with a dash of milk.

I don’t typically love assams (this is a recent discovery) as they tend to be a bit too bold for me, the “almost bitter but not” taste just doesn’t usually jive. I did like this one – I steeped it for less time than I would normally steep a black tea and it worked out really well. No milk needed, which is often what I turn to when a black is too bold for me. Anyone who enjoys bold teas will definitely enjoy this.

This is a really solid, quintessential green to me. It is light but not super super light, and not bitter at all. It doesn’t taste particularly fruity. It is really what I imagine plain green tea to taste like, and it tastes good. Which is I suppose what matters the most. I resteeped this twice, but am unsure of how often it could be done. If I had done shorter times, I imagine this could have gotten a lot of steeps out of it.

This is a very bergamot heavy earl grey, which is not my cup of tea. However, with a dash of milk…awesomeness happens. I find plain earl grey to taste a bit soapy on it’s own when it is this strong, but that just means a bit of creaminess is needed to help mellow that sharp flavor a little. The bergamot still shines through with the dash of milk so I can taste it, but no soapy aftertaste. Very good.

Ok so disclaimer – sugar is sugar to me. This definitely tastes more like the raw sugars that have more of a mollasses taste, but in the end, it is just sugar. Recommended because it is basically impossible to screw up sugar, but whether or not I would ever purchase it would depend entirely on whether the price is competitive with similar brands of sugar.

This was very good – it has distinct spicy flavor that frankly doesn’t remind me of any other chai I have had, and I have had many. I wish I could pinpoint what it is. I had it with a sprinkle of the sugar that came in the sample pack, as well as a dash of milk, and the spiciness still shone through. I could have used more milk and it would have made it even better.
