drank Earl Grey Creme by Argo Tea
336 tasting notes

I bought the box of sachets to keep at work during their recent scratch to win promotion. I unfortunately dropped my work steeping mug a few weeks ago and have been living off of bagged tea at work every since (sad face). Anyway, this was surprisingly yummy since I’m not the biggest fan of earl grey.

Once a bit of sweetener was added, it was basically like drinking a lightly flavored creamsicle, with just enough tea flavor to convince yourself it was actually a mug of tea with bergamot and cream flavor and not some sort of juice. I share an office with a fellow tea lover who absolutely loved this stuff and wanted to buy a ton for home use.

I’m thinking of buying the loose version for home since it is really yummy. I don’t even know what temperature the water is at work, but I got two steeps out of my tea bag.

drank Moroccan Mist by Argo Tea
526 tasting notes

Normally, I am a huge fan of mint in gum, chocolate, etc., but I have had a few mint teas and not enjoyed them so much. I think it might be because things like mint chocolate are so sweet and in mint teas, without the sweetness, the mint is just too strongly herbal for me. Anyway, the dry leaf smelled almost like spearmint to me. The tea is very minty and refreshing, but like I said, just not up my alley. I won’t rate the tea because it’s not the tea’s fault that I have a weird relationship with mint.

Too sweet, and I don’t think the lemonade goes very well with the tea…should be more subtle.

This has great flavor without being too sweet or bitter. It definitely wakes me up and holds up to long brewing well.

drank Oolong Coconut by Argo Tea
30 tasting notes

So, been missing in action for a long while. Life changes and among the first time I’m able to get back to tea after buying the new house/farm/zoo. :D

The coconut oolong tea showed up at Argo Tea while i was away from my constant acquisitions and consumption of tea. However, as one of the first that I’ve tried in my return it’s certainly made me happy. It’s got a decent taste and the coconut is noticeable but not overpowering. I’d probably describe it as a poor man’s milk oolong.

drank Charitea (Bottled) by Argo Tea
1212 tasting notes

I went on a tour of a really big Whole Foods today with Yelp and saw that not only were bottled Argo Teas on sale, but they had this one, which I had never tried before! So of course I got a bottle and I regret not getting two!

The name is a cute play on what it contains too…charitea is a cherry tea! It has cherry, hibiscus, and vanilla. It’s sweetened so it’s not too tart, but you can definitely taste each of these things. I really like the way vanilla and hibiscus taste.

I only drank half the bottle tonight because it’s pretty sugary and I wanted to try a coffee I bought. I enjoyed the coffee more I am so sorry tea.

But really this is one of the better bottled Argo options. I hadn’t ever seen this one in a store before.

I’m going to hold off on rating this for now. It seems a bit less flavorful than some teas, but it could be that I should just use more tea and less water. The green comes out as a bit of a grassy one, and the flavors are there more in scent than flavor.

drank Tea Sparkle by Argo Tea
796 tasting notes

I had this and it was really more like a soft drink. I had a black tea with peach flavor. This drink includes carbonated water, and I’m certain a fair amount of sweetener, so it was not quite what I am used to drinking. Still, a fun and refreshing drink—especially if a rare treat.

drank Holiday Dream by Argo Tea
1212 tasting notes

I completely forgot about the teas I got at Argo after Christmas. Oops. Nothing really screams “this is for winter only!” about any of them so since I was in the mood for a green, I chose this over the herbal one I’ve yet to try.

And I see why. This is not for me. For some reason I really really cannot do almond flavor in anything but black tea. Something just doesn’t taste right to me in white/green teas. I’m getting it in this and I really don’t like it with the orange and cinnamon. Without that almond taste, this reminds me of a cookie.

If anyone wants this, let me know, because I don’t think I’ll even be able to finish this cup. And if you can do almond flavoring, this has to be a really excellent cup of tea. Boo, taste buds.

Afternoon tea wit chicken pilau. Yum! This tea is so colorful. It reminds me of White Chai by 52Teas. There are bits of red and white and green in the mix. Flavorful.

drank Pomegranatea (Bottled) by Argo Tea

This is so fresh tasting! much better than any other bottled rooibos blends I’ve had (rooibee comes to mind). It was great with my Organic Bistro frozen dinner (wild caught salmon in Rosemary Orange Glaze with Cranberry Pilaf & Broccoli). The walnuts, cranberries, and orange glaze paired wonderfully with the tart, fruity tea. I’d buy this again (I also love reusing these Argo bottles with the screw on lids – they are very sturdy!)

drank Black Currant by Argo Tea
23 tasting notes

I dont know what went into my brain that I tried this one..I think it was a vague black currant gum association that I used to love as a thirteen year old….and in memory lane – I tried this one..

The flavor was very artificial and the tea certainly was one of the lowest qualities I have tried!

Tough luck Hazel!

I would have tried it too, Black Currant is a good idea, unfortunately, sometimes not done very well…
I will mark this one off too!

Hazel

Let me know if you come across any good black currant tea :)

drank Winter Spice by Argo Tea

I’m always intrigued by herbal blends that don’t lead with lemon and chamomile. The cocoa and almond in this one is a nice touch.

drank Snowflake White by Argo Tea
1768 tasting notes

Most of my white tea reviews lean heavily to the complaint side. Thanks to laurenpressley, I finally found one to love. The apple-peppercorn thing gives this delicate tea some flavor, and even though it’s nowhere near the ingredient list, I could swear there’s a white chocolate thing happening in the background.

Nice, nice, nice!

I’ve had this teat a hadnfull of times now, and I’ve learned that if you over steep it (even if only a bit) it will become VERY bitter. The best results seem to come from 3.5 minuets with a water that is about 175-180 degrees fahrenheit / about 80 degrees celicus.

However, if you don’t over steep the tea it OK. I say “ok” because the fruit flavor can be a bit too much for me.
