My humans like Dragon Well green tea, so they thought a flavored blend based on this tea would be good. Unfortunately, they didn’t taste the tea too much. Lots of great rosebuds and orange pieces, though! http://is.gd/2xF2Do

revisiting this one… this is a really delicious chai. Very warming and aromatic. Incredibly soothing as a latte. YUM!

I started my day off with this one…the name alone explains this week. I’ll be drinking a lot of tea today but not making much sense!

Winter…GO AWAY!

My full-length review for this tea will publish on January 21 at noon Eastern Time.

This is one of the better mint green teas out there, in my opinion. A very nice balance between mint and green tea. Delicious!

The dry leaf is GORGEOUS! Big slices of dried orange and rose buds and petals tossed with large Dragon Well leaves and tiny lavender buds. It smells gorgeous too. I especially love the aroma of the brewed liquor, the lavender and rose and citrus meld together and the fragrance is intoxicating.

It tastes rather amazing too. I am happy that they used Dragon Well in this blend, so often in blends like these Sencha is the choice, and not that I have anything against a good Sencha, but with these light floral notes, the Dragon Well seems a better choice than a buttery Sencha.

Light, sweet, floral with just a hint of citrus in the background. Delightful!

This is a very pleasing balance of peppermint and gunpowder green tea. No one flavor overwhelming the others. The peppermint is strong, but so is the green tea, and I’m not getting the overwhelmingly vegetative taste that I sometimes get from a gunpowder green. A very nice blend, indeed.

I’m a fan. Loose leaf teas are my favorite, and the only reason I ever have bagged tea is because TJ MAxx gets so many and I am a sucker for cool packaging. This one was a gift, and I like it. I’m a fan of benefits in tea, and consider it more important than the taste. The taste of this doesn’t rock my world, but I feel better drinking it than purely delicious blends.

Yum! Chai!

This is a very good chai. A very good blend of spices – it tastes even with no one spice overwhelming the blend. Just a delicious, warm spicy cup! The black tea base is solid and delicious.

I’m liking this the more I sip on it.

This is one really awesome blend!

A lot of different tastes in the cup, primarily I taste hints of citrus and licorice, but there is a nice smoky spiced undertone to it too. Very good! Not very much in the way of the chocolate flavor, but, the other flavors going on are delicious and intriguing. Spicy, but not too spicy, sweet… but not too sweet. Very well-balanced.

I really am liking what I’m seeing from this tea company so far. Cool packaging and interesting and very DIFFERENT blends.

LOVE the name of this one too! :)

I’m really diggin’ this company! For soooo many reasons!

As for this tea…it’s alright. When I first smelled the dry leaf it reminded me of some sort of marinade…almost like a steak rub or something.

There are so many flavors in this tea…due to so many ingredients! I was nervous thinking it would be all spice and not much else…but I think the Yerba Mate changed it up a bit and made it unique and somewhat sweet, even. I would LOVE to taste a bit more of the cocoa nibs as I think that is the ingredient I am tasting the least of but I won’t hold it against ’em.

I can’t help but like this cup…it’s just fun and certainly gets an ‘e’ for effort. I like the other two I have had from Indie better but this one is alright too!

Well, well, well! Dragons-Well!!!!
I can mostly smell Lavender prior to infusion. Afterward I can smell the orange a little bit too!

The taste is very nice…a little on the lighter side but very pleasant and tasty and smooth. I can taste the orange and the floral ingredients as well as the green tea! I know this would be great iced, too, but this cuppa as well as the rest of my cups today will be HOT!!!!!

As for this tea – I thought it would be too full of spice – but everything works awesomely well together! This is VERY good! I’m officially festive…I am drinking Frankincense & Myrrh…among other things…YAY!

Full review coming soon to SororiTEA Sisters!

I fantasize about a real Moroccan sunset, but this tea will suffice for now. I really like the crisp taste of this mix.

The labor of love went into this tea. So far Indie Tea has not had a bad or under-the-bar tea that I have tried, and I’ve stayed close to this brand.

The old Laugh In theme definitely did that. I love this tea. I’llbe adding to this note as I get better at evaluating tea.

I thought this romanticly-named tea might be loaded with natural aprodisiacs (sp?) but rediscovery helped me realize that I am just good naturally. The teas is good by itself as well. Yum!

Interesting blend. Actually very enjoyable. I drink it regularly, maybe it’ll make me the wiser.
