This is another one of the teas I received in a trade with silvermage2000/Ashley.

The smell of this tea…wow, it’s just incredible. I open the bag and instantly I’m bombarded with scents of luscious mango, peaches, and papayas with undertones of rose. If they made a perfume out of this tea I would so totally buy it!

I’ve never had a green rooibos tea before – I’m not a huge fan of it’s red cousin, but people have said that the flavour is considerably different, so I was willing to give this tea a shot. The taste starts out similar to a red rooibos tea, though not as woody or tart, and then it changes into tropical fruity goodness (yum!). The tail end of the flavour has an refreshing taste with ‘bright’ notes. Seriously, I don’t know what words to use to describe them. There’s a lingering floral aftertaste, just a faint hint of rose, nothing artifical or unpleasent.

This tea gets a solid thumbs up!

oh this sounds wonderful! I’ve never tried green rooibos, so your description is very helpful. added to shopping list

Well the problem with a blended tea is that I’m not quite sure if what I’m tasting is the rooibos base or the added flavours. But I do think that I wouldn’t enjoy this tea as much if it were made with red rooibos. :)

Another Ashely tea…thanks Ashley!
I cannot express how much I LOVE the smell of this tea! It’s brilliant!
The tasting is lovely as well. If you can’t drink at work (LOL) this is a great substitute! :P

It’s like a raspberry, grape-E goodness with noticeable white tea taste, a tad floral and fun! I can almost feel the bubble starting to brew! teahee

I have yet to find a white that makes me go oooh…but this one sounds like it could. Grapey. That’s what sold me.

Brilliantly refreshing today!

I always wonder about this tea because I don’t really care for mint teas (I have to be in the mood for hot mint), but also because Snow Bunny is a slang term that has many meanings, mostly derogatory.

S

Peggy, same…I always get turned off when I see mildly sexist and racist things on tea websites…sigh. Their loss. The worst is if it’s a company who’s tea I enjoy.

Peggie Bennett

I’m not put off by it as much as they should probably research the names first a little before they market it. Maybe they haven’t heard of Google? :-)

S

Haha, actually “Snow Bunny” didn’t ding my over-sensitive no-sense-of-humor feminist radar until you mentioned it. I was thinking more along the lines of a company that was using the words “yo” and “dawg” when describing a fruit tea that tastes like “red kool aid”, and another that was trying to be macho and funny, but just came off as offensive to me…>;[

Peggie Bennett

Oh wow, I haven’t run across those yet!

This looks like a dark black tea with light brown specks. I assume this this has a blend of black teas but did not see anything specific on the website. This smells like good black tea. I steeped it up. It tasted like black tea slightly strong without being extremely strong. With no bitterness or anything like that. I thought this was good.

Apparently last time I had this the vanilla was too strong,but with using a teaspoon of leaf instead the vanilla and peppermint are more balanced and I like this more and of course the black tea tasted nice.

Robert Godden

hmmm, that’s unusual. Is it mainly black tea with just a hint of mint and vanilla? And which black?

silvermage2000

Its a black tea with alot of vanilla and abit of peppermint. It’s just for some reason I last time used a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon of leaf and I thought it was too strong.

Robert Godden

And now I’m off to experiment!

i can see the ingredients. This mostly smells like orange. I brewed it up. The taste a strong sour orange with some chamomile and abit of mint. The orange is too strong and tart and overwelms the other ingredients. This just does not taste all that good. to be because of that.

This is Nummy! I had a HUGE honkin’ chunk of Papaya in there with other bits of Papaya and Pineapple. The flower buds look like they do in the picture. There is absolutely NO false advertising with this description! I really like this blend…very flavorful both with the tea itself and the other ingredients. And it smells GREAT too!

I do not always record how many times I drink a specific tea. But this is my second cup of tea in general today. This tea I just finished my 5th cup.

This is really hard for me to describe the smell of! I think that might be a first! I really have been trying to think of the words to describe this and I can’t come up with anything. Mellow, slight, neutral…not sure.
Very light in color near clear.
Very clear and refreshing.
Barely there mint taste but you know it’s something…might be good for those who don’t like mint or a lot of mint.
A Very delicate tea. Not much to it but I know that’s by design.
Soothing. Yes! Soothing is how I will remember this tea!

This has white tea,safflowers,raspberry,and champagne flavoring. There is not actual alcohol in this. You tell the ingredients. This mainly smells like grape. I steeped it up. This tastes like grape with abit of raspberry and white tea. I think this is pretty good.

Angrboda

That sounds lovely!

silvermage2000

Thanks for the comment if you like grape and white tea you should check it out.

This smells slightly like black tea and apricot. I can see all of the ingredients. I steeped this up. I’t has a medium pineapple papaya taste with a decent black tea. This I’s a good tea. The only thing I would rate this higher would be a stronger pineapple taste.

A nice standby black tea with a slight hint of rose taste…but barely there in scent.

JacquelineM

Mmmmm – that sounds really nice! I’m so attracted to floral teas in theory, but then chicken out and don’t buy them. I think I’ll take the leap next time I order!!!

Meg

a jasmine green tea is always a nice way to ease into it. :)
