Slightly better by using brown sugar instead of white sugar and by using a touch of skim milk instead of half-n-half. Still disappointing, but not as much as when I first tried it.

I bought this because I had a coupon, but I don;t think I’ll buy this again. Any cocoa is barely perceptable — it’s as if the ingredients in here may have been cocoa in a previous life. Very thin tasting, even after brewing for nearly 10 minutes. It’s hot and it’s wet and helps digest dinner. Other than that, FEH.

I’m admittedly a bit of a noob when it comes to judging rooibos teas, so any of my comments should be taken with several grains of salt. My impression of this tea is that it has a “medicinal” quality that is alternately soothing and irritating. The aftertaste, to me, is a little bit like alcohol…!

It’s an interesting flavor…not sweet at all; it paired well with a gingerbread lebkuchen…

Like the monks who toil over lush gardens of fresh leafy flavors, consider the possibilities of pouring piping hot boiling water over actual dried leaves of tea…the ones that you can actually distinguish as leaves. It has been whispered through the halls of the time-tested tea wisdom of our elders, that tea’s true flavor is derived from the oil of the leaves as they gently relinquish their essence in defeat to their defeator, boiling water…therefore one may deduce that the absence of tea leaves, means the absence of flavor as well.

A lovely red tea.. though it could have been redder. The flavors work well together. This was my first Good Earth tea and I’ll have to keep Good Earth in mind in the future.

This tea has a REALLY potent smell that’s almost all spice, and is balanced by the taste which is almost all sweet. It’s a great combo, and makes for a nice cup that can be steeped a few times if needed. That said, I think I should have steeped this for less time to smooth out the sweetness, as it was almost too sweet and makes you pucker up a bit with each sip. Definitely one that I can see myself drinking more of though, and especially on a cold and rainy day.

Refreshing and delicate as a green tea and jasmine should be.

Second tasting note, backlogged from last night. Love the rooibos, vanilla and caramel smoothness, but this time I really noticed the hint of anise. Pretty unexpected, and I’m not a fan of anise, but it really worked. Too bad I don’t have much more of this in my cupboard.

This is a very nice tea. The spices could be a little stronger but they are still good. Sometimes you can get a strong pepper flavor from the tea, which I enjoy.

I bought this purely because it sounded different. I must say I was nervous about this, BUT, I am enjoying it as I type. WHen you open the tea bag envelop it smells like a fruity wine, almost. When and after steeping it smells more like a more gentle juice of sorts. It’s the darkest white tea color I have seen yet. The taste of fruit is a nice touch and thankfully not overbearing. I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

I love this tea. It is one of the tastiest teas I have yet to taste. I love the slight hint of vanilla, but it doesn’t dominate the flavor. Soy milk and honey make it perfect.

This was in my company’s kitchen this morning so I’m giving it a shot. Smells great and tastes pretty good for a paper bagged tea. I’ve added lots of honey. Ingredient list is green tea, lemongrass, “natural flavors” (?), rose petals and peppermint. Why does it also contain soy lecithin? Need to keep an eye on this ingredient in other teas.

I think that it is to preserve the tea giving it a longer shelf life. Besides that it does not make scenes to me too.

Soy lecithin, in this case, is most likely being used as an emulsifier – that is, an ingredient that helps keep things that naturally separate together. My best bet is that the oils in the lemongrass rise to the surface of the tea and make the flavor bitter, and the soy lecithin is being used to keep it all together.

I’m not usually a big green tea drinker, but I like this green tea with ginseng. Normally I drink black teas with sweetener, but for this I use only a small amount or sweetener or none at all. The bags are individually wrapped which makes it easier to transport. This was a good tea for drinking on campus while grading homework.

One of the only teas I enjoy from a bag. Love it!
