Oh no, I am running low on this! How can the tea cabinet be so full, yet I am running low on several favorites? I think it’s time for spring cleaning.

Thanks Nichole!

Everything about this is very gentle. I like that as sometimes I am just looking for a gentle green or a gentle flavored green…this will fit the bill for those moments.

The green tea is a bit flatter than most which contributes to the overall gentle-factor. As is both the Pineapple and Papaya flavors. I can taste a combo of those two flavors paired with the green tea but it’s hard to distinguish which tropical fruits are in the flavor combo. BUT…the taste is juicy yet gentle and overall quite satisfying…

This isn’t really my type of tea. It is okay, but nothing spectacular. The smell and flavor seems a little too veggie-ish for me. I can taste the jasmine, but prefer teas with stronger flavoring. Prepared with stevia.

drank Pineapple Papaya by Cameron's
149 tasting notes

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.

drank Eve's Rose Petals by Cameron's

I haven’t tried rose tea before for fear of it tasting like potpourri (and this one definitely looks like potpourri). But, this tea was really good. The flavor was light with hints of rose and mostly apple. A great bedtime tea. Prepared with stevia.

drank China Gun Powder by Cameron's

I’ve never had gunpowder tea before and very rarely drink green tea, but I really like this. I’m not sure if I taste the smoky flavor, to me it is more of a warm, toasty flavor (kind of like caramel). Prepared with stevia.

Good cherry flavor, just the right amount of tartness. The rooibos gives it a little bit of a woody flavor. Prepared with stevia.

Lots of tart passion fruit flavor. The aftertaste is more berry with a touch of something herbal. Tastes a lot like a less intense version of Tazo’s Passion tea. This tea blend looks great, with huge chunks of fruit and leaves. It is a little weak – I used three heaping teaspoons to about 14 ounces of water. Prepared with stevia.

drank Black Currant Tea by Cameron's

This one is growing on me more with each sip. Decent fruit flavor (but could be a little fruitier for my tastes). Has a very malty, almost creamy flavor. Doesn’t need any milk added. Prepared with lots of stevia, I like my fruit teas pretty sweet.

I fell in love with black currant tea from a deli chain called Jason’s Deli. They offered an amazing iced black currant tea, real full on the mouth. Thankfully, I found a replacement! The tea is lush in black currant flavor. It tastes real, not artificial. I have only had it iced. It’s truly an uplifting tea, made with assam. I am a fan, and I will be buying this tea up!

I had this last night with some leftover vegan sweetened condensed milk I had made, and a bit of coconut cream. Yummy!

drank Rooibos by Cameron's
188 tasting notes

I was so thrilled to find this at my grocery store – loose, for 99 cents/oz. I really like rooibos, and I wanted to get plain old rooibos for blending with other teas/herbs/flavorings. This is great on its own, or with a splash of soymilk. Nice earthy flavor and a subtle sweetness, like I would expect from a rooibos.

drank Moroccan Mint by Cameron's
188 tasting notes

Mint makes a great combination with green tea, and this blend is lovely. It is good on its own as a hot tea, but where I really enjoy it is combined with jasmine green tea and iced. So very refreshing! I anticipate brewing a lot of the jasmine mint green tea this summer.

drank Black Currant Tea by Cameron's

This is one of my favorites. A nice blend of black and fruit flavors. The currant flavor holds its own but is not overpowering. I guess the description of “malty” is accurate for the black tea flavor. I usually drink this hot, but I think it would also make a nice iced tea. I prefer this tea with no milk or sweetener.

As a sidenote, although this tea is fairly strong (I use about a teaspoon of leaves in a large mug, maybe 16 oz), sometimes the color seems a bit weak. I usually swish around the infuser at the end of the steep, which darkens the color, and I’ve never noticed variation in the actual taste of the tea.

This is great on its own, or blended with Cameron’s Moroccan Mint green tea and iced – that is my favorite iced tea.

Okay I’m new to rooibos. This is the second I have tried, the first being ROT-they taste very similar to me. I enjoy it but it does not leave me with the passion to have more.

Coppery color is an understatement – This tea is red! Super good for you though and great to mix with other teas. Again, I found this guy at Cub Foods. Great deal for rooibos tea.
