Spices + rainy, dark almost-winter days = perfection

This eucalyptus and orange rooibos mix is nice, I just wish the eucalyptus wasn’t as overpowering as it is. A little more orange would have made the perfect taste.
After a very stressful day, the spices in this tea are just the perfect way to relax. Also, that pistachio I saw lurking in the mix? I’m so gonna eat it after it steeps. ;D
Another lovely tea bought on my last trip to Empório do Chá.
I love berries, so a tea that smelled as good as this one had to be bought. And I am happy to say that it was worth it. You can really taste the redcurrants, the raspberries and the blueberries.
I love surprises, and this one was actually a pretty nice surprise. After brewing, I couldn’t smell the berries anymore, but after one sip you can definitely taste the raspberries and the blackberries. And that is a win in my book.
I would have to agree with the previous reviewer: this is one of those teas that doesn’t impress at the first sip, but grows on you by the end of the cup. A light blend that goes very well with a late morning.
I absolutely adore fruit infusions, and this one actually tastes as good as it smells, which means… a lot. A lovely infusion for a cold evening. And it probably tastes even better cold, on a very hot day.
Not THE Marco Polo, and seriously nothing like it. And the geek in me wants to point out that historically calling this “red” (pu-erhish?) with spices tea after Marco Polo seems a bit more likely than the very french, fruity and refined Mariage Freres blend. This is a little bit more like a silk road in the 14th century drink.
Nice. Be careful with steeping times though or it can get overbrewed in an instant.

A nice fruity taste, perfect for a very long night.
Hmm, tasty. Infusing twice working nicely as well.
It´s mostly a grapefruit flavoured (not that grapefruit is mentioned on tea description, but really it´s grapefruit) rooibos. I can detect the orange as well, a bit overpowered by the grapefruit, but none of the other flavours. Not bad, but not anything to write home about (or rebuy).
Very nice, though I think I must brew it with more tea to really taste it.
A strange one, not quite what i was expecting. Though strange at first sip, I was definetely converted by the end of the cup. The cherries I suspect (and maybe the goji berries as well) add some texture to it. Otherwise a very light and delicate flavoured black tea.
It is certainly a different (to me) kind of tea, but this is one taste I might just adquire. Like it a lot, though to my palate I like it better when done with hotter water than the 70C recommended.
I overbrew this while doing some and NOT A GOOD IDEA. It´s still drinkable and interesting, but it gets a silty sort of flavour.
a cherry tea, with a bits of other fruits, some apple for sweetness and some unexpected coconut which goes with the rest much better than i would have expected. Not bitter, and very natural, light taste. Supposedly kiwi which I could not detect, but I brew just one cup, maybe my spoonfuls contained no piece of it. No hibiscus or spices at all. Very lovely.
And the infused cherries on strainer are quite delicious!
Nope, not that Marco Polo, or even an “hommage”.
Red tea IMO is rooibos, but this is absolutely not rooibos but real tea. From description, twice fermented, I think this is a pu-erh, a type of tea of which I have drank very little (so far!). This is flavoured with red pepper, pink pepper and cardamom, and it is absolutely lovely. It is spicy, but not too hot (piquant) and the spice is very well balanced, none of the peppers or the cardamom rules. And it´s very tea-ey, earthy and deep, but not too much. If this is pu-erh, I am converted.
