This was a disappointing tea from the English Tea Shop, especially with such a grand name; boasting a tropical punch. For lemongrass flavours, I would recommend The English Tea Shop’s Lemongrass, Ginger & Citrus.

I am so over this. One more and it’s a sipdown. It’s just a plain, one-note rooibos, and not even a good one at that. It’s got a sort of chemically taste which I find really odd. On top of that I bought it in a rooibos four-pack, the other three being flavoured, and every single one of them, despite being individually wrapped, has always tasted the same. It’s not exactly foul spit-it-out-immediately tasting, but it’s boring my tastebuds to death and I’d be happy never to drink it again.

I’m falling out of love with rooibos too. I do have some great rooibos blends, but I’m kind of tired of the flavour these days (especially plain/rooibosy tasting blends).

Tell me about it. I can only think of one rooibos blend that I really really like. ):

Which blend is that? I’m big into cocoa chai rooibos right now (David’s Tea). It isn’t high in the rooibos flavour category though.

I’ve never tried that. The one I was talking about was Della Terra’s Lime Chiffon, but I forgot about another I really like which is Bluebird Tea Co.‘s Rhubarb and Custard. Neither of them are available any more, though, so once I’m out I’m out!

Exactly what I expected from a green tea. Seeing as the last few green teas I tried were worse than this one, I consider this a good choice.

I can taste a nice hint of blueberry in this tea. The mild blueberry flavour is enjoyable. I’m not sure what elderflower is and therefore, I don’t know what it’s supposed to taste like so I have no idea if I’m tasting it or not. Really, I just taste the blueberry and that’s fine by me.

A tea with a distinct blueberry taste to wake you up, a very refreshing start to your day. It also got rid of my sore throat after a few cups. A lovely tea with benefits for the winter season, as well as all year round.

Fantastic tea. The smell I found slightly off-putting at first but was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it! It tastes completely different from its smell and this is a good thing. One of their best teas. It is a delicious treat with shortbread cookies for the winter holidays.

A wonderful flavor if taken just black, adding milk just adds to the overall great taste. Without milk or sugar, it may be a bit of an overpowering impression that cancels out the peach with its black tea base. This tea is great taken in any way.

The smell of this tea as it steeps is so nice. The fruity scent is front and centre. The taste is green tea with a fruity kick. Not sure that you can really say it tastes like pomegranate. For me, it just tastes “fruity.” Not a bad tea, I prefer it over their plain green tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Green

Mild. Too mild, bordering on watery. The flavours aren’t fully developed and are lacking in taste. Fairly boring.

Flavors: Ginger

This tea is just okay. Nothing spectacular. A tad bitter. Not my favourite green tea.

Rooibos tea will never be a favourite of mine but it’ll do when I’m in a mood that I just don’t care what I drink. The woody taste is odd to me but I can put up with it. I much prefer white, green, black, oolong and herbal tea over rooibos. I don’t hate it but I would never go out of my way to have it either. Most of the rooibos tea I have were given to me as part of a gift pack or what I bought at David’s Tea to see if flavouring would make the rooibos taste any better to me (it doesn’t.) This tea is just a straightforward rooibos and really, it isn’t half bad. Maybe I’ll still learn to appreciate it but for now I’ll stick to drinking my old faithfuls (mostly.)

Very well balanced, albeit weak. Drinking for medicinal purposes— lavender is really the only herb that consistently helps me sleep. To that end, this is a perfectly serviceable blend.

Flavors: Apple, Flowers, Lavender, Sweet
