Very sweet and spicy. Delicious but one cup is definitely enough. Have to be in the mood for it.

This is my go-to green tea. If I can’t find it, I go without. For a store-bought tea, this is my favorite tea with it’s mild, soothing aroma of jasmine flowers and light taste that needs no sweetener.
it is jasmine enough for me ^^ not too keen on the green component of the tea anyhows. for the 2nd steep, i combined it with loose chamomile that i had earlier today. nice combination :D
This is my one exception (so far) to my no mint policy. It is extremely strong, and tastes of sweet cinnamon and peppermint. There are other flavours, but they tend to become overpowered the way I drink this tea. I brew it in a thermos (just leave the tea bag in there for hours) when I go hiking or snowshoeing, as it’s a perfect pick-me-up after being out in the cold for a couple hours. Yum!
I have to change my original rating. The more I sipped this tea the less I liked it. While looking at the teas that Walmart carries, my eyes were drawn to this tea. Thought I’d give it a shot. You win some; you lose some. This was a loss.

Smells delicious, but I feel that it’s quite strong. I usually add milk and honey to sweeten it up.

I don’t know from tea, but this is all right. It’s sweet…real sweet. I admit, I love sweet drinks but hate the lingering sour taste of sugar. This tea neatly sidesteps that by being perfectly sweet with no harshness afterward. The spice feels like one apple-juice-steeping away from Christmastime.
Don’t drink the stuff in the bottom. Yow!
Complex, spicy and sweet, this stuff is great. While it doesn’t carry the same heaviness as other traditional black teas do, don’t be mistaken into thinking it’s weak, because it certainly isn’t!
I tend to avoid most green teas because of the “grassy” taste but this one actually is pretty tasty! The lemongrass adds a nice touch, and I’ve found myself not even needing to add sugar to it, a rarity for me.
There is so much oil of spice added to this tea that the bags are oily and stained a curious greenish-yellow. The flavour comes across as fake and can easily turn a stomach. This tea is undrinkable.
this tea is simply delicious,the best fruit tea ive ever tasted,…
ive been on a diet and found this simple to make and so comforting to drink,..

Like with my not so great experiences with Green teas, I tried Chai years ago once or twice. (I remember at least one of those times was a cold one…Starbucks or Borders Cafe.) I did not care for it. I suspect now that it was because I did not have the palate to appreciate it. Now, generally speaking for a bagged tea, Good Earth seems like a decent company. unbleached tea bags, no over emphasizing health qualities, (which is not an automatic turn off for me, but still.) This flavor: I am extremely picky about my vanilla. Imitation doesn’t bother me, as long as it doesn’t taste like imitation. And balance of flavor is also important, if there is more then one. I do not like notes that only hit at the last minute. I do like the Original Spicy, but I found the cinnamon to be almost too intense. So, the vanilla smooths that out for me, but I still feel the kick of the cinnamon. I think next time I will try steeping it for 7 minutes, to see how it comes out.
Another tidbit that was included in the sampler from KeenTeaThyme. The dry bag smells very strongly of cinnamon. I am instantly reminded of winter and Christmas time with my grandparents, even though I’ve never had this tea.
The taste is very mild on the actual black tea aspect. It just tastes like straight up cinnamon and anise. My mouth literally tingles with the combination. It’s very flavorful and interesting, but not really what I’m into. Especially in the summer. But I can imagine this might be nice on a gray, icy day.
I think that Good Earth was the first tea that converted me to a devoted tea drinker, over 7 years ago. I’ve sipped it now and again since, and none of the nostalgia has worn off. Reached for it this morning because I’ve been on a “serious tea” binge and needed something a little easier, with more of an emotional connection and less of an intellectual tasting. However, I left the tea bag unattended and it turned out slightly medicinal tasting.
No matter the actual quality, I know that this is a tea I’ll return to so long as Good Earth keeps making it.
I love chai. I love chocolate. So why is this tea such a disaster? This does not have the flavor profile of any chai I’m familiar with, and it does not taste very chocolatey to me either. It’s not that I don’t like cacao nibs, which have a unique, raw, almost wine-like quality – in fact, I buy cacao nibs in bulk because of how often I use them.
The cacao and chai overtones are there, but the spices are skewed towards an odd curry-like savory direction. Vague, sickly sweetness and chicory root overpower a thin black tea component, and the whole thing has an oddly musty, dirty sock/fish vibe. There is no sweetener or creamer that can redeem this. This tea has been on the shelves for a while, so somebody is clearly buying it and enjoying it. I just tell myself that I got some crazy dud, because it disturbs me to imagine that somebody out there would have been depraved enough to enjoy the cup that I poured down the drain.
A smell of strong, fresh berries greeted my nose as I ripped open the protective sachet to prepare the brew.
This cup is going to be enjoyed whilst watching football (soccer to some of you).
Colour: Deeply dark purple.
Super strong, sweet and fruity. I can taste the apple firstly which comes through quite sourly and then berries come marching in behind it with sweetness. It’s alright over all but I was hoping this one would be a little more delicate and not so much of a mixed fruit punch. Blueberry is what it’s called and blueberry is what I wanted to taste. Maybe a better name would be ‘Sour apple with mixed berries’. I keep being reminded of sweets today
A good basic green tea, with the side benefit of being decaf, so I can have it while I unwind before bed!
This tea not only smells fantastic, but it tastes great, too – the fruit flavors are there, but not enough to overpower the tea.
Such a Warming chai tea. Quite different in flavor from other chai teas I’ve but it’s really flavorful and tasty with milk.

This was an alright tea, I felt like having a tea bag… the smell was so strong with the chai.. it was so spicy for the smell, it put me off a little… I couldn’t really smell the cocoa in this… the taste of the tea is the exact opposite,, I can taste the cocoa, and not so much the chai.. I did add milk and sugar to tone it down though…. It was drinkable.. I did enjoy it… I wouldn’t buy it or feel the need to drink this again..
