This is not a bad herbal, and it smells and tastes quite pleasant. And it is very soothing and calming too. I was a little unused to a teabag without string but nothing a spoon can’t solve. :)

This was a good introduction to rooibos tea for me. The vanilla is a nice complement to the rooibos. I’ve found some very nice loose leaf rooibos teas with vanilla recently, but this is a good inexpensive bagged one that you can find at the grocery store.

The best part of this tea is it tastes just like a liquid caramel apple. The worst part is, well, do we need a tea that tastes like that?

I don’t taste any cinnamon or hibiscus.

There are other apple teas I enjoy much more. I think it’s just too much with the caramel.

I work in the freezer at a big box store—today I spent about 2 1/2 hours in -15 degrees. Brr! Had frost on my hair, eyelashes, scarf. I love it! I was definitely needing some tea when I got home, though. I hadn’t tried this before, and since I don’t want to be up for the next five hours, I figured now was a good a time as any.

Long story short, yum! I’m a sucker for mintyness, so this is a big thumbs up from me! Smells amazing, and happened to come with a “collectible tin,” aka, tea transporter for bags that aren’t individually wrapped. Happiness! A hot cup of tea on lunch can help bring feeling back to my legs. :D

Whoa. This one is seriously heavy on the ginger. There’s also quite a bit of cinnamon. It’s surprisingly bold for an herbal tea, and while I do get the gingerbread (as in bread, not cookies) comparison, I mostly taste hot, spicy ginger snaps. Not bad at all!

Uh, so the ingredient list on my box of tea has a lot more than spearmint with flavoring in it. In fact, there’s no spearmint? Color me confused.

I’d call this a peach camomile, but whatever. It’s tasty.

Well, I did go back and get another box of Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. I like it too much not to. There were two other seasonal teas on sale as well (this one and the gingerbread one), so I grabbed those too.

One thing this has going for it is actual pumpkin in the ingredients list. And I can taste it, too! Very happy about that. Not so happy about the intense fake sweetener taste. This smells like a pumpkin pastry of some kind but tastes like dipping my tongue in a bag of stevia. Hmm. I get the feeling if I brewed this with extra black tea it’d be better. The pumpkin flavor is very nice, but I wish that fake sweetness was gone.

A strong tart-peach scent/flavor – only recommended if you really like peach.
Oddly enough it’s much less tart when cold.

This one doesn’t have the hibiscus aftertaste that makes me avoid most fruit teas (hibiscus is in the ingredients but further down the list than usual, also maybe the tartness from the peach and orange peel cover up the taste?)

Travel Notes: Teabags but no wrappers. Overbrewing might lead to overly tart tea (will test this).

Recommended for: Those who like strong fruity flavors/scents, those who are looking for a fruit tea without hibiscus.

Flavors: Peach, Tart

I love mint, the stronger, the better. This brews up a good cup of peppermint. Nice and strong, but not particularly fresh. It’s cheap and you can find it everywhere so it’s good to have on hand.

I don’t know what it is about this tea, but it’s seriously good. I keep turning to it on days when I need to relax or I’m feeling a little off. Maybe because it’s like someone baked cookies for me! Today that feeling is much appreciated—I’m already sick after a week and a half of classes. Oops. Maybe I’ll go back to the store I got this from and see if they have any more on sale. I could use a stockpile for bad days.

This is a shock! I made a cup of this while cleaning up my room, and within two minutes it smelled like I had been baking. The taste is warm and comforting too, and somehow this tea manages to be buttery, just like a cookie. I admit my reasoning for getting it was “hey, it’s on sale,” but I’m glad I went for it. Yum!

I was looking for a tart tea and I certainly got it this evening! Hmm.. There is definitely lemon here, but it’s shadowed by hibiscus. I don’t think the lemon is the lemon that I prefer, but it’s a decent lemon flavor if you’re in a pinch. As much as I wish this tea had more flavor beyond plain lemon and hibiscus, it was definitely what I wanted this evening and I could see myself picking up more just to have a tart tea on hand.

Also got a swap package from the lovely, Rosehips! :D She sent me some teas I’ve been wanting to try for a while, such as this one! :D
I haven’t been able to find this anywhere, other than the seller’s website. So I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try it.
It wasn’t as strong as I hoped it would be, but the vanilla is definitely there. I didn’t think it tasted too artificial, but I really wished that it had been stronger. Then it would have been the perfect vanilla tea before bed!
But since it wasn’t, I’d say it’s an alright tea. Not the best. But I’ll finish the sample. I’m really really glad this was only a sample, and that Rosehips gave me the opportunity to try it! Thanks again! :D

That’s a great thing about samples, you get the chance to try before you buy! I haven’t actually tried this yet, so I should get on that, and see how it compares. Glad the package arrived!

This was my introduction to rooibos. Pretty good, considering the price…and it made me want to search out more vanilla rooibos teas.

This tea was not bitter, which was a plus for me. The tea bag is larger than the usual ones with string and tag, which is nice to let the tea have room to steep a little bit better. You can pick out the taste of the green, and white tea rather well. Although, the lemon flavor does shine through more than the tea itself. All in all a good cup, but I don’t think I will be buying a box of it for myself. I steeped for about 2, 2 and a half minutes, and added 1 and a half spoons of honey.
