With cream it’s almost like drinking coffee. The hazelnut flavor really comes out, more so than the vanilla. Don’t go by smell because the smell of it in the packaging isn’t that appealing, but once it gets brewing it smells wonderful. It’s just a bit too much like coffee to be something I’ll drink all the time, but the fact that it’s decaf is nice.

Unfortunately I threw away the box before I could post the information about this tea. It’s very much like Celestial Seasonings’ Blueberry herbal tea. I don’t even know what acai and pomegranate taste like enough to say if those flavors were prominent. I do know it was pretty good with milk, but for some reason had a candied flavor.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but I really enjoy the tangerine flavor. That’s the only flavor I can detect from it though, except a bit of berry. I like it! It doesn’t try too hard to be spectacular, just something nice and warm for a rainy day or iced for a hot summer day.

Found I liked this better over ice. Drinking it warm was too much like drinking hot juice. It just feels unnatural.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite teas. It might even surpass Bigelow’s spiced chai at the very top of my list. It was particularly refreshing today.

I’ve had this many times now and so far it’s been pretty hard to mess up. Maybe once I tasted a very, very slight bitterness, but that was all. Note that I steep it very carefully, not even for 2 minutes.

I don’t know how I feel about this. It’s almost like drinking hot juice, the kind of taste that you have to be in the right mood for. The lack of caffeine certainly helps make that decision. ;-)

I just realized this is like drinking Big Red gum…only with apples.

I found out this morning that it is a mistake to drink this after eating Cream of Wheat with brown sugar in it.

I followed Tea4Me’s instructions and steeped for just one minute. It has a light, delicate flavor that doesn’t need much sugar. I could taste both the pear and the vanilla. I’m going to be enjoying this very much this spring. =)

It says on the box not to get the water to boiling and to only steep for 2 minutes. Surely the only reason this tea is being rated as bitter is because it’s being steeped too long. I’m used to steeping my teas for more than five minutes, so I wasn’t expecting much with only a minute, but it really is enough time. The tea isn’t meant to be strong anyway.
