Bought after hearing a friend mention it as we were discussing our favorite chai teas. I’d never tried it before, as I was a Tazo chai drinker. But, this tea is really something. Love that I don’t have to add sweetener to it. I think it’s the cinnamon, and the licorice that’s no longer listed on the box. This tea snob will most likely purchase this again.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice

Sample from Nichole. Thank you!

I might have liked this if it wasn’t pre-sweetened. As it it, I find it too sweet, so I’ll be passing it along to someone else.

I made mine a latte. . it was much better that way. I still have 3 boxes of it :)

gmathis

I doubled up with a bag of plain black breakfast tea and that cut the sweetness a bit.

I sent some off to a friend, but I’ll have to try out these suggestions.

The scent is strong something I love. And the taste is perfect for me. It leaves that cooling feeling that I love when I eat pepermints that just makes this one satisfying tea for me

This tea isn’t the best flavor wise, but it never fails to help me when I’m sick. I woke up this morning with a horrible sore throat and a lot of sinus pressure, so I whipped up a cup of this tea. As always, I felt relief.

Tea purchased in the grocery store yesterday. I am still having problems sleeping so need to find more decaf options until this crisis is over. :P

I don’t see the point in paying a lot of money for a decaf tea because they aren’t usually that tasty anyway. THis blend is ok though. From the name, you would think its all fruit flavor, but there is also spearmint and lemongrass in the blend. So it’s more of an herbly, minty, fruity kind of flavor. I found it fairly mild and refreshing, Definitely nothing to rave over but it will serve the purpose of helping me sleep better.

I put two of the teabags in the fridge to try cold brewing them. I think this will be a bit better as an iced tea.

did it work ? i had quite a lot sheng yesterday. i was pretty energized before going to bed. decided to fix some shou. 3 cups later and felt so sleepy

gmathis

I think I’d like this better than the traditional lemony one! (Is it just me, or do 99% of all herbals taste minty?) Have to look for it in town.

@boychik I did sleep better last night than I have in a while. Can’t drink shou at night like some of you folks, I’m so jealous!

TeaBrat

gmathis – you’re right, a lot of them are minty and i’m not often in the mood for a tea made of straight herbs anyway. this isn’t bad for a mass market product, I found mine at Safeway

This tea does NOT taste like strawberry champagne…it tastes like a strawberry jelly-filled doughnut! The strawberry flavor is quite sweet and slightly artificial and there is a distinct pastry note to the aftertaste. It’s not at all what I was expecting, but it’s actually pretty good! Not sure this is something I would buy, but I’ll happily drink the 3 sachets I have left. Thank you to The Cookie Lady for the awesome swap package…I’ve been sampling the teas she sent me all week and I still have several left to try!

Flavors: Artificial, Pastries, Strawberry

TBT Review!
I used to work at a hotel a couple years back and my favorite shifts were the ones that started at 4am. despite the horribly earliness of it all, I really loved how quiet and dark everything was. the bar had been closed for two hours, and the bartender had gone home an hour after that. the only noise from the basement was the sound of Mexican polka music and the laundry room washing machines humming (at times it sounded as if they were humming to the beat of the ranchero) The only other person i would see in the morning was the lone person at the front desk. I would groggily say Hi and grab keys on my way out.
I worked at the little coffeeshop attached to the hotel, across from the bar. Yeah, I had to kick out a hobo that would sleep in the entryway every once in a while, but nothing exciting happened at 4:30 in the morning.
I lived within walking distance, and it was kind of cool walking through a silent ghost town that was that part of downtown. I would maybe see three people, max. Just buzzing street lamps and steaming manhole covers. An errant runner with a dog, a stumbling drunk. In the summer, when the sun would rise earlier and earlier, i would see the tiniest whisp of glow on the horizon.
This was my usual tea i took with me on those mornings. Yeah, my coffeeshop had tea there, but none of it was a good kick in the pants as this was. And i hate coffee.
It was bland, slightly cinnamony black tea that made good use of a small dose of almond milk. It had a nice kick in it that helped me though the walk and through the morning shift.

It tastes like an overly sweet, very slow death. God-awful, a single sip is enough to bin the box and look for something – anything – to take that taste off one’s tongue.

Simply peppermint—not a favorite genre of tea for me, but an adequate representative.

I wasn’t too enchanted with this one, since I didn’t discern any chocolate or caramel flavor in my cup…just lots of cinnamon and clove over a mediocre black base. Drinkable, but doesn’t live up to the name.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove

A perennial classic since my childhood. Tension Tamer is too much for me! Ideal for when I’m looking for something in between straight chamomile and straight mint.

I’m not much of an herbal tea drinker, but I like vanilla, and I bought a couple boxes of this a while ago. I can’t taste much vanilla…quite a bit of spearmint flavor…it’s not bad, I’m just not that into spearmint. The flavors do blend fairly well together with the chamomile.

Gives you exactly what it says, delicious for a bagged tea. I find the spearmint in it goes well with the chamomile

I’m always hesitant to try blends with black and green tea: how do you steep that? But I bought a box of this in order to have teabags in the office and it turned out to be a go-to tea. It’s a good cup for any time of the day and easy to steep.

I normally hate hibiscus-y teas, but I enjoyed this one. It’s exactly what it claims to be, orangey and tart. Not my ideal tea, but good enough. And hibiscus tea is another way to get some vitamin c so that’s a plus too.

The Country Peach Passion is definitely my favorite in this box. The others are all berry zinger types which have always tasted a bit acidy/harsh to me. I would recommend skipping the sampler and going straight for the Country Peach Passion if possible. Otherwise I can see this being a good box for company to drink from.

Wow, my husband was not joking when he said this smells just like blueberry muffins! It definitely reminds me of a blueberry baked good like pancakes or muffins or maybe even a blueberry jam. The color is a deep berry red and the flavor is tart, but with some added honey it’s quite good. I have to admit, it’s nice to be able to get back to a simple flavored tea after drinking straight unflavored teas for the last week or so.

When I was weaning myself off of coffee (for the second or third time) I’d substitute this for coffee and it did the trick! I love that I can let this tea steep for ages and it’s not a problem – just more tasty cinnamon flavour! :)
