Oh, this is pleasant! Lavender’s got some good marketing behind it, man; I always feel more relaxed any time I smell or taste it. I find the vanilla note perceptible here, as well, which is, I think, what saves this tea from being too floral for my tastes. I wish it were caffeine-free, as this would be a wonderful tea at bedtime, but alas. On the upside, I think this will make a unique and refreshing iced tea, and I can’t wait to try it out that way!

Ooh, I liiiiiike this. I perceive a vague, mineral-esque taste to this one, but my palate is super-unrefined, so what do I know? I find the flavour is very much affected by the steeping time and the temperature of the water, and it’s the only tea that I can ever be bothered to actually be careful with (I’m lazy, see). When the bitterness starts to rear its ugly head… well, make that heads. If we’re using heads as a metaphor for bitterness, then this one’s a hydra. But when it’s right, it’s very, very right.

This may well be my favourite tea. Nice and strong, and a little bit sweet on its own accord. I could drink this tea anytime, anyplace. And I’m really fickle, so that’s saying something.

Now here’s a vanilla done right. I’ve gotten so used to artificial vanilla flavours that it’s a real treat to have something that tastes… real. This is light and creamy and sweet. And delightful. Very delightful.

Simple and sweet, but bizarrely, this appears to contain no actual vanilla. What gives? To me, Vanilla Oolong just tastes sweet. Generically sweet. I much prefer the newer Vanilla Orchid, which has a creamier vanilla flavour.

Lovely! Full of flowers, but doesn’t taste perfume-y. Gets bitter if steeped for too long. I’d serve this if I was having grown-ups over for afternoon tea. Mild & pleasant & different. Not my usual thing when it comes to tea, but nice enough for something different.

THIS IS THE BEST THING. Pineapple coconut awesomeness, and tastes just like a pina colada. Perfect for summer.

Lemon. Why am I getting lemon from this? The tin says orange peel but my taste buds say “Lemonnnnn!”. Anyway, I find this tea fine. I neither want to sing from the rooftops about it, nor send it down to the bowels of hell. This one’s a refreshing cup, not a comforting cup. Supposedly, the eleuthero root is an adaptogen, which is meant to help your body adjust to stress. I don’t drink it enough to know whether or not that’s true, but there you go.

The colour is indeed off-putting. People (including the man I’m married to) rave about this one, but to me, it’s rather nondescript. Sugary-sweet and not overly memorable. But, cat sprinkles! So, yay for that.

Green tea with chocolate and cinnamon. Super Chocolate is SUPER YUM. This tea has a weirdly comforting flavour. It reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. I wish it was still readily available in the shops.
