Very nice flavored tea. Groovy package look. Suits this little teapot well. My humans liked it, too. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-indie-teas-road-to-hana-tea.html

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

Relaxing after a busy day of dance class and running around. This is a nice cup to sip while relaxing! I can taste each note – the lavender, the rose, the orange and the green tea. A lovely medley of flavors.

Aw, I like the name of this one. But I am an unabashed romantic…

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!

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!

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.

This is a wonderful and deliciously different chai. It’s been a while since I’ve last tasted it, and I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I sipped it again. It is so nice.

It isn’t overly spicy, but, what I would call a well-seasoned spice blend. It has a good amount of spice without being hot or overwhelming. The black tea is strong and malty and delicious. I can taste the hint of orange in the background and it offers a nice light flavor to the blend, giving it a sense of balance.

A very good chai.

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.

I’m sending a little of this to a friend but I’m finishing up with a cup of my own. I can taste the citrus more this time around and am enjoying it more than my prior attempts therefore I am upping the rating! 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!

Bah Humbug!

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!

SIPDOWN!

This sort of smells like oatmeal and flowers.

It tastes like wine and roses. It’s lovely. I hate to be out of it in my stash.

See previous notes for more thoughts…

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!!!!!

SIPDOWN…spices a little harsher than before but still enjoyed the orange flavor that peaked thru…still like the overall blend…

KeenTeaThyme

I’m probably the only person here who is a tea drinker and a gamer, and the only person who would even think of this, but when I see “Caravan” I think of Fallout: New Vegas. It does make me want to try the tea…as do your descriptions. :)

The Purrfect Cup

I too am a gamer…there’s that twin thing again!

KeenTeaThyme

It’s out of control! :) Do you know what I mean by Caravan? The Crimson Caravan Company….Cassidy’s Caravan…? Gamers + tea drinkers unite! :)

The Purrfect Cup

Very out of control. But I’m ok with that! I really do need to try this tea out too!

TeaEqualsBliss

teehee! That and SciFi stuff!!!

The Purrfect Cup

Don’t get me started on the SciFi stuff! :)
