Unlike many chocolate teas, this actually tastes like chocolate. It does have a bit of an artificial flavor, but not enough to bother me. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
149 Tasting Notes
A good Mate tea with chocolate and hazelnut flavor. The smell is absolutely incredible. Even though this does not taste like coffee, it is very reminiscent of a coffee latte. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
This is sooooo yummy! Very different from most fruit blends. Sort of a fruit punch type flavor, but with an interesting pineapple and coconut flavor. Has a tangy flavor that I can’t quite describe. The texture of the tea is a little thick and almost creamy feeling (I am guessing from the oil of the coconut). I will definitely be buying more of this one. Would probably be okay for most people without sweetener, but I did add some stevia.
A very green tasting oolong with a faint coconut flavor and aroma. The tea tastes less green and less like coconut on each subsequent steep. I liked the second steep the best. Not the type of tea I normally drink, but pretty good overall. Prepared with stevia.
A decent chocolate tea. The chocolate flavor comes out much more with the addition of milk and sweetener. Resteeped this tea, and I think it is better the second time around (the flavor is somewhat smoother). Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
This tea was a major disappointment. It tasted very woody, and somewhat like cardboard. There was no caramel flavor whatsoever. Unless I just got a bad or old batch, this tea is just plain bad.
Finally, a chocolate tea that tastes like chocolate. Good chocolate mint flavor, reminds me of the Velamints candies I used to have as a kid. Like most chocolate teas, this does have a bit of an artificial flavor, but not enough to bother me. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
This review is for the bagged version of this tea. I’ve never had Keemun Panda before, so I don’t have anything to compare this to. To me this tea tastes malty and smoky. I am not really getting a winey or fruity flavor out of it. The flavor is good, just not what I was expecting. The teabags from this company contain a lot of tea and produce a very strong cup, so be careful not to oversteep. Prepared with stevia.
A nice, versatile, super cheap rooibos (purchased in bulk on Amazon). Seems to be great quality and flavorful. I plan on using this as a base for a lot of herbal and fruit blends. Very good on its own as well. Prepared with or without almond milk, sweetened with regular or flavored stevia.
This is a very lightly flavored green tea. The green tea base is a good, run of the mill sencha. I don’t really taste pineapple or papaya, just something vaguely tropical, mostly in the aftertaste. Not bad, but I prefer my teas more heavily flavored than this. Prepared with stevia.
I know absolutely nothing about green teas and rarely drink them, so they all kind of taste the same to me. This was better than most. The dry leaf had a bit of a mint smell, but nothing that I could taste after steeping. The tea had more of a fresh taste than what I am used to with most greens. There was a bit of earthiness as well. It thankfully lacked the veggie-type taste and smell that I think many greens have (some remind me too much of spinach). If I was going to drink unflavored green tea on a regular basis, this would probably be my top pick. Prepared with stevia.
Very flavorful and malty. Maybe a little harsh, but I think Irish Breakfast is supposed to be that way. I always drink this sweetened and with milk (sometimes with flavored sweeteners). This tea is still decent even when I forget about it and totally oversteep it – just add more milk and sweetener. I always need to have this in my cupboard.
This tea is better than I remembered. Maybe it was because I forgot it was steeping and let it go for about 20 minutes. I didn’t taste the chamomile in it at all. It had a good mint flavor, but without the bite that mint often has (more like spearmint than peppermint). Tasted very refreshing, yet was calming at the same time. Prepared with stevia.
I didn’t like the first steep of this tea at all. It seemed very astringent and almost a bit salty (I did rinse the tea before the first steep). But on the second through sixth steeps, it was great. The taste seems kind of toasty and a bit nutty. The flavor was full, even after so many steeps. I probably could have gotten even more steeps out of it, but wanted to start drinking something else for the evening. Considering I normally only drink flavored teas, I really enjoyed this one.
This is a fairly decent orange spice tea. It has a lot of orange flavor and isn’t bitter as long as you don’t steep for over 3 minutes. I really don’t care for the spices in this tea, but I generally don’t like cloves in anything. Prepared with stevia and occasionally almond milk.
Adding a little lemon juice to this tea makes it much, much better. It definitely benefits from some added tartness.
This tea tastes really artificial to me. It has an aftertaste similar to artificial sweetener. The chocolate flavor is fairly strong, but I don’t taste hazelnut at all. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
I’m not really a fan of chai, but this one isn’t too bad. I like that the spices in it are light. I couldn’t taste the chocolate or mate in it at all. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
This tea does not taste of coconut as much as it smells of coconut. There is still a decent coconut flavor, but it could be stronger. It doesn’t taste tropical to me, more of a baked goods type flavor. This did make me crave coconut, so I am now on the lookout for more coconut teas. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
This tea is okay, but it seems to be lacking something. It has a sweet lemon flavor, but could benefit from some added tartness. I think maybe the chamomile makes the flavor a little too mellow. Will try mixing this with a tart fruit blend. Prepared with stevia.
Finally out of this one. I had to mix it with other teas in order to use up the remaining bags (luckily I had gotten it in a sampler and only had 3 bags). Blah in a teabag…
This is a great tea for hazelnut lovers. My husband, who knows nothing about tea, commented that the tea I was drinking smelled very hazelnut-y. Light, but yet has a good amount of flavor. I will buy more of this one when it’s gone. Prepared with stevia.
Resteeped with a regular Tetley black tea bag thrown in. It still produced a decent amount of caramel flavor.
I’m almost embarrassed to admit, but I love this cheap bagged tea! It is creamy and rich, the caramel and vanilla flavors don’t taste artificial at all. I had this one a lot over Christmas at my parent’s house, and it was very tolerant of incorrect water temperature, oversteeping, etc. If I did have one complaint, it is that you don’t taste very much black tea flavor. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
