This is a full-flavored tisane, or caffeine-free infusion, with lots of yummy berry flavor. Perfect warm or iced, good for kids, and also ideal for baby showers where the mommy-to-be is probably going caffeine-free.

This is my favorite tea. It’s great on its own, but I also like to make it iced with honey and ginger. Delicious!
I LOVE this tea. It smells wonderful and has pretty pink rosebuds to make it aesthetically nice as well. I like the natural sweetness of the cinnamon and it isn’t overpowering. It is a pale amber color when steeped, but not real good for multiple steepings. I’m lucky to steep twice before it’s just colored water, pretty normal for an herbal blend. Good quality tea, excellent price considering it comes in a tin to keep it fresh. Highly recommend trying if you like the herbals.
This is a white tea with a more substantial flavor than some. Some white teas don’t seem like tea at all. This is a good one for people who find most white teas a bit too timid.
This is my go-to Earl Grey tea for daily use. I like it not only because the company is based in my native Kentucky, but because the tea is very well-balanced between the bergamot and the black tea. As much as I love bergamot, I was drinking Earl Greys with too much such that it was ruining other types of Earl Grey for me. This was a good compromise. I enjoy with a bit of German rock sugar from Teavana.
This is a such a treat for a black tea. It has just the right mixture of delicious orange peels that awakens the senses and plenty of creamy floral notes of the Sri Lanka Silver Needles, not to mention an added small jolt of caffeine from the Golden Yunnan black tea. Delicious!
This one of the cleanest and most refreshing white tea that I have tasted! I truly like having the light and refreshing flavor, along with a great engulfing aroma of the Darjeeling white leaf. This is a a must have any serious tea drinker.
I tried this one in a little tea shop. Very berry. I left the bad in and it never got too strong. Very lite and fruity. A great afternoon tea!
Got it as a Christmas gift. I usually like stronger read but this one is so smooth and full. I love it! Its my new morning favorite!
It’s December 1, which means I start getting into the Christmas spirit. I thought I’d celebrate with a Christmasy tea. This is a tea I’ve had forever… I bought it years and years ago. It’s been in a tin all this time, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s diminished in quality. At least the dry leaf still smells pretty cinnamon-y.
The steeped tea smells pretty much like cinnamon with a brightish black tea base behind it. I don’t get much orange (there is orange peel in the blend), but I never remember this one having much orange flavor to start with. I remember I loved this tea way back before I was a tea addict. I also think I used to drink it sweetened. This tea is still remarkably pleasant to drink after more than five years. The black tea base is pretty smooth and the cinnamon is festive and spicy but not too strong. Still, overall it’s a bit meh, which is likely due to it’s extreme age. I bet that I would drink this one more if I took it home, brewed it really strong, and drank it with milk and sugar.
10 minute steep is very similar to the 5 minute steep. Strong on the blueberry, not too sweet, and not really tart either. Just very berry.
Slightly tart, definitely berry. Not really sweet at all, just berry. I wouldn’t say that the blueberry is the star of the show, but is definitely a main character. The currants and hibiscus are much more prominent.
I brewed for 5 minutes. Next time I’ll brew for 10 and see if I get a stronger tea.
I mostly purchased this tea because it is a rare merging of my two favorite things, tea and mountain biking. I’m normally not that crazy about Yunnan teas, but this one has deeper flavor than most. The aroma is wheaty, and the tea is very smooth and rich.
Wow. WOW. Definitely my favorite straight black tea. The flavor is strong, malty, and very unique. The smell is kind of smoky, but the taste isn’t. Filling too. I will definitely be buying more than this!
Drank this a few days ago and forgot to log it. I much prefer this to the Lover’s Leap. The leaves are bigger and the taste is more complex. It’s naturally sweet and delicious with milk.
This tea is basically the liquid version of York Peppermint patties. At first sip, the mint does tend to overpower the chocolate, but the very chocolatey aftertaste makes up for that.
I think I put a little too much honey in this; I could barely taste the tea itself. I’ll have to try it again.
Had some to keep me awake while finishing a term paper (procrastination is never worth it, kiddies). The flavor was simple and straightforward, not too bitter, malty, or sweet. Just a simple, no-nonsense black tea.
Really malty for a white tea. Just not for me.
I think I may have oversteeped it; it had too much bite and I could barely taste the peach and ginger. Fortunately, it was drinkable after I added milk. Maybe I’ll try it again and steep it for three or four minutes.
Another one from my cousin. A pleasant surprise! I’ve tried English Breakfast tea before and found it quite bitter and hard to drink. Granted, the tea I tried was cheap, bagged, and probably stale. This one was very strong and rich, but not in an off-putting way at all. Just wonderful with milk and honey. A good staple.
Another sample from my cousin, who works at Elmwood Inn. Thanks to her, I won’t be running out of tea for a long, long time. XD Made 16oz of this with 2 teaspoons of the loose tea, a little bit of whole milk, and a tablespoon of honey in the rough. The taste was strong, but not overpoweringly so. There was definitely a lot of variety in the spices, and every sip tasted different. It’s naturally sweet, making it a great desert tea.
