This tea is bitter today. I can’t wait til I’m done with this tea. Blah…
Today was my last day of ICU. I’m a little sad about it because I enjoyed it. The nurses and attendings are all so awesome. My fellow resident and I went out to eat then she drove me home. I came home craving some tea and settled for this. Bad decision. I will make a different tea later. blah!
I’m just glad I only have enough left for one tea.
I received this one in a swap (so sorry I mixed in with my box and forgot to note who it was from)!! Thank you regardless!
This is quite nice :)
The Orange and Vanilla are lovely together. The hint of cinnamon goes a long way and the almond helps with the nutty-sweetness and overall smooth factor paired with the vanilla. The green tea base it’s grassy and it’s mellower in green-tea flavor but everything works very well together and I can see myself enjoying this most any time of day!
So on my flight schedule yesterday was Guatemala City to Houston. Houston to Chicago. Chicago back to Akron/Canton. Two hour layover at O’Hare and I need something to eat. Before I settled on the golden arches I found Argo. I love the concept of this place and wish there were more places like it in Ohio. So I order the English Breakfast and the Mate poached turkey sandwich. The tea is not bad your basic English Breakfast tea. Malty and a little bit of that Keemun kick. The sandwich though fabulous! I liked it better than the tea.
I had been wanting another one of these bottles for storing cold brewed tea, so I grabbed this one at Fresh Market…I hadn’t seen it before so even better.
I haven’t liked rooibos when I cold brew it, but I like this…probably because it’s sweetened. It’s got a good amount of pomegranate juice in it, because it looks more like juice than tea. It’s a nice refreshing flavor.
I think they are kind of overpriced to buy regularly at $2.39 but now I can keep 2 bottles at home and 1 at my boyfriend’s place and have cold brewed tea ready all the time. It’s also not bad if you really want tea and you’re out somewhere without any…like me.
Thanks to oOTeaOo for a sample of this one. Flavored greens can be tricky. A lot of time they can overwhelm the tea so I wonder if they are made for people that don’t really like green tea. I was worried this one would be too sweet but it isn’t. The cinnamon and orange flavorings both seem to be very subtle which is nice. Something about this combination always seems to remind me of the holidays.
This seems to be a lighter Chinese green although I’m not sure which one. I feel like the cinnamon is quite predominate here especially in the finish. That isn’t really a problem for me because I like cinnamon. Although I liked I am not sure I would buy this for myself. Now I wonder if I can find a green chai I would like?
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.
Well, it looks like Argo sells loose leaf too, but I had a RTD from them, the Carolina Honey. Got it at the local Safeway (Von’s).
Although I am not a fan of honey, I am starting to appreciate it’s subtle sweetness in my teas, and this one just confirmed it. The tea wasn’t particularly impressive, and I could not detect any lemon. Wasn’t bad for a RTD, better than Lipton or Snapple that’s for sure! And a nice glass bottle that I think I can reuse for a while. I might try some of the other ones, there was a RTD Mojito one and a green.
I am so freaking tired! I don’t know what came over me this afternoon. I was just chugging along fine, and then out of nowhere, bam!, utter exhaustion. I really want to go climb into bed right now, but that is not really an option. Oolong seems to have done nothing for me, so I thought I would give this roasted maté a go.
Man, I used to really love this. Way back in the day before I was really a tea drinker, I loved drinking this. Now it’s not really my style anymore. It’s kinda sad, actually! Adding to the fact that it’s pretty old and I feel like it’s lost some of the almondy chocolatey flavor I remember and now it kind of tastes like toasted cardboard (with the almondy chocolatey flavors lurking underneath). Man this is totally not working because I am too apathetic to drink this cup. Oh well, hope I’m not getting sick.
(estimated guess on temp and time…still a gnoob ;P)
Bought this to try something new…my first “wow, I have never heard of this varietal” tea. When I steep it, the smell reminds me of some shwag weed. Taste is a bit woody, but not overpowering. Not really getting the sweetness the other reviewer talked about, but I don’t think I made this very strong. Overall, not bad, but not amazing. I would give this varietal another try, but not this company.
Thanks Amanda for this one, too!
Sort of reminds me of a Tea Forte Mix of flavors (but at least it doesn’t have Hibiscus!)
Smells like cinnamon, roasted almonds, a bit of soy sauce…
tastes like roasted almonds with a bit of soy sauce, a bit of spice but not over the top or enough to identify as cinnamon (maybe a little bit in the aftertaste), and cocoa powder, but I can barely taste the “zest”. Having said that – this isn’t too shabby! I can see myself drinking it once in a blue moon…why not.
E for Effort!
This is interesting. I didn’t like it at first because it tasted too much like bad apple juice, which I think was just the spices and the apple.
But as it cooled, or as I drank it, I really started to enjoy it. It’s different. I just don’t think you can tell that it’s white tea at all because so much is going on.
This was another RTD that I picked up from Safeway the other day, since I didn’t hate the mojitea I figured I’d be safe with another try from Argo. I like this one much better than the mojitea … LOTS of bits of ginger in it and I like that. I taste the touch of lemon and it offsets the ginger flavor a bit, which is nice, but I feel like the green tea gets a little lost in this RTD, but fortunately, it isn’t too sickeningly sweet so that’s a plus. I could definitely drink this one again.
Special thanks to Amanda for this one!
I passed my 5,000th Tasting Note!
This is actually my 5,002nd Tasting Note!
So…I think it’s time for me to give away some tea! If you would like to throw your name into the hat for a mystery box please leave a comment on this post! Tomorrow I will choose ONE person to start gathering teas for and in February I will mail a box out to the winner! It will be an assortment of teas, companies, sample sizes from my stash!
My thoughts on this tea…
It smells like a cross between crust, mushrooms, apples, and pepper, and popcorn.
It’s a yellowy color and the taste is very different from other apple whites I have tried.
The Pink Peppercorns threw me for a loop at first but I got used to them. The apple is toned down by the peppercorns but still present. I can tell there are spices at the begging and end of the sip…they are mellower.
This is ok. Ballsy mix of flavors here and I appreciate that! Not my fave but not bad either :) So glad I was able to try it!!!
One of the best teas I have ever had. Smells like mint chocolate chip ice cream.
I found this at my local supermarket and decided to give it a try. I wish I had examined the bottle a little more closely because I probably would have chosen a different tea had I realized it was a peppermint herbal tisane. But, aside from that, this is a pretty decent ready to drink. A bit sweet, and I would have liked it better I think if it were not as sweet, but it isn’t as sweet as some other ready to drink teas I’ve tried. I will keep my eye out for some of Argo’s other RTD to see if I like them better.
I LOVE this tea. Such a graceful flavor with a nice black tea profile. This is the last of my stash. It will be missed.
I have a) had it made at Argo and b) diluted it when I had the bottled version.
At Argo, you can get it made with sparkling water instead of still, which makes it a lot better. When I had the bottled version, I did like a 4 parts of the tea to 1 part of club soda, and it’s a lot more enjoyable that way. It’s not very much like tea, but if you’re lazy and want a mojito you really could just add some rum to this and be set.
This is such a great basic flavored tea. Oddly, I LOVE honey teas but rarely put honey IN my tea. The flavor tastes very crisp and clean. As an aside, this tea does perfectly well when made using microwave water (as the micro is my only option at work).
The honey is strongest at the beginning of each sip. As the taste cools the black tea becomes more powerful and the honey flavor more slight. The flavor is very natural and does not taste artificial.

Had this with breakfast, the name is clearly deceiving because it’s not really like the cake at all. It’s like a rooibos latte with raspberry and white chocolate. Those are 3 things I love, but the raspberry was just a bit too syrupy for me after about half the drink.
Cool idea though. I think I am going to just get a plain tea from there tomorrow.
