I enjoy this iced but actually think I would like it better hot. The basil and lemon are both present, but are mild. The lemon is artificial but because it is more of a background note, it isn’t bad at all. Overall, I’d say nothing to write home about, but a solid choice.

Good afternoon/early afternoon Steepster!
I haven’t had much time to write tea tasting notes recently, but I thought I’d brew up some of this blend I haven’t had in a while. I think I put this at a ‘65’ the first time I drank it, the licorice is very strong but maybe licorice teas are growing on me a bit because I raised the rating on this one today. Work was a bit better today, at least not as stressful, but there hasn’t been much down time for tea drinking.
TTB Tea 6: While looking for a tea for the morning in the giant pile of TTB teas, this one stood out to me, with an odd ingredient called “peach crunchy.” Looking at the other reviews, it looks as though other people were drawn in by it as well.
Dry, it definitely smells fruity. I’ve been really craving fruity teas lately, so yay! However, I’m really not tasting much besides the black tea. Perhaps this is an old batch and it’s losing some flavor? I think I’ll sit this one in the fridge for a cold steep and see if that helps any. It’s not terrible, but right now it’s not impressing me either. I was expecting much more tasty fruit flavors after reading the other reviews!
I made myself a pot of this because I wanted something sweet to help me wake up today. The first glass had a lot of coffee notes to it, and now that its cooled its almost all almondy roobios. I wish the coffee would’ve stuck around longer but I’m not angry with what I have. All in all a good tea I’m glad I have more of.
Holy wow guys. I bought this on a whim because I had seen lots of people rave about watermelon tea. Its something I would have never thought to try otherwise, even if melon in any format is usually one of my favorite things in life. I read its best served chilled so I made a cup and put it in the fridge to cool while I worked out.
This stuff is absurdly good. I am so glad I bought it. Wven at room temp the sweet and tangyness of it is just outstanding. (Why yes, an accidental couch nap did occur, I blame the work out) I will definitely be looking for more melon teas to try out. Recommendations welcome.
Oh my, was this ever good! I made a cup for Mr.K after he got off work. He typically doesn’t choose flavored teas, preferring pu-erh and oolongs but today he chose this so I made up a cup. He asked for it no sugar, as typical and was disappointed when it tasted like “somebody put a dash of coffee in his tea.” I took it back from him, tasted it and decided it would benefit from some sugar. He okayed it, I returned to the kitchen to add the sugar. I tasted first before taking it to him and opined that it would greatly benefit from a splash of milk. Surprisingly, he also agreed to this and allowed it, but reiterated just a splash. Well, that splash made it. This ended up being a delicious, creamy dessert tea. Totally yummy!
When I first opened this tea the aroma of Starburst-like strawberry wafted to my nose. It was very sweet and juicy. When I took the first sip the strawberry flavor was still there but more subtle and not as artificially sweet as I feared. It remained juicy and sweetly strawberry. I didn’t taste the coconut, at least not as strongly but the tea flavor was good. I enjoyed this tea. It would be perfect for a spring or summer afternoon.
Saturday Sipdown Sample. The first time I drank this tea I just loved the fruity flavor and the mild touch of the green tea. This time, I don’t know, maybe because I have a minor cold virus, I just didn’t like it as much. I tasted the fruit and the green tea, it just seemed a little weak somehow. And I used plenty of dry leaf to make my cup. It was just OK.
An interesting blend of green tea and yerba mate. I didn’t hate it, it was tasty, but I was still a little disappointed because the description suggests a black forest cherry cake flavor and that’s not what I got.
I got a sweet, vegetal taste from the green tea and earthy notes from the yerba mate. Hints of floral notes. A sweet, invigorating taste.
But I got no cake-y flavors, no chocolate, no cherry, and there really is nothing to this blend that even suggests that these flavors might come forward with the exception of a very faint whisper of a sour cherry note. But that is so barely there that it’s not even worth mentioning.
I wanted chocolate and yes, I’m a chocoholic and there’s never enough chocolate but there wasn’t ANY chocolate here.
