Every so often I need to try making myself drink things like this that I’m not hugely fond of. I do like cinnamon and plums but this tea is very light, and weak. I wonder what base they are using here for the black tea, perhaps it’s a ceylon, I’m not really sure. I would not be too tempted to buy this one again, it’s overpriced. You’d need to use at least two teabags in an 8 oz mug.

That’s what I found when I had this many years ago. I expected to love it, but it was just meh.

I have yet to find a Republic of Tea that I think is really good… I am just planning to not buy them anymore.

Amariel

I was the same way…I really really wanted to like them, but I just didn’t. My husband (mostly) created their logo many years ago, incidentally.

I agree completely with your review Amy.

Maybe I should try cold brewing it before I throw the rest out, not sure I can bring myself to finish it

ScottTeaMan

I think cold brewing it would work fine…. you probably already know to add extra tea for cold brewing. ;)) I even add extra RoT tea for hot tea.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
