This is not the type of tea I would normally buy. I actually got it for my mom (and of course stole a cup before giving it to her). It’s not overwhelmingly cinnamon, but still too much for my tastes. The apple and rooibos flavors are light. It’s a good tea, just not really for me. Prepared with stevia.

drank Rooibos Caramel by Adagio Teas
149 tasting notes

I’m a rooibos fan and I’m a caramel fan, so I absolutely had to try this tea. Some may think it’s a little on the boring side, but I’m really liking it. The caramel flavor is fairly strong and blends well with the rooibos. Some sweetener really helps it meet its full potential. I’m looking forward to trying this mixed with some other teas. Or maybe some shredded coconut. Prepared with stevia.

A light, tropical tasting tea. It is very fruity and a bit flowery tasting, but nothing over the top. I’m having a hard time picking out individual flavors, everything is blended pretty well. Probably not an everyday tea, but still good. Prepared with stevia.

This is a nice light, fruity tea. I can taste the peach and strawberry in it, but not the citrus. There is no tartness to it, yet somehow the fruit flavor manages to not be too sweet. It is very nectar-like, with a syrupy quality to it. Prepared with stevia.

drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas
149 tasting notes

Not bad. The almond flavor in this is more of a sweet amaretto than a savory almond taste. It stood up well to a second steeping and still had a fair amount of almond flavor. I didn’t get a chance to do a third steeping. Prepared with stevia.

Absolute perfection! This is sweet, nutty, with a hint of coffee aftertaste. It really does taste like tiramisu. It could substitute as dessert, and that is a huge compliment coming from me. Prepared with stevia.

I purchased this mate because it was really cheap and I wanted to use it to mix with other teas. It’s good for when you want to add a little extra “oomph” to your breakfast tea. I normally mix this half and half with a strong breakfast tea, then steep according to the instructions for the tea. Steeping the mate at a higher temperature doesn’t seem to affect its flavor.

It is unfortunate that this tea is only available during the holidays, because it is really good. Very pastry like, with great vanilla and almond flavor and a hint of cinnamon. It kind of reminds me of a snickerdoodle cookie. The black tea flavor in it is fairly strong as well. Prepared with stevia and (sometimes) almond milk.

drank Winter Spice by Twinings

This is a very weak, light tasting tea. If you are looking for an alternative to the typical (mint, citrus, vanilla, etc) chamomile blend, it is okay. The apple and spice flavors are gentle and pleasant, but overall it is a boring tea. Prepared with stevia.

I liked this tea so much that I actually made a second cup of it right away. I rarely drink the same tea twice in one day. I never drink the same tea two times in a row. Apparently I’ve found one of my new favorites.
