This is one of my favorite black teas. I know a black tea is exceptionally good when I don’t even want to put lemon in it and I love the lemon/black tea taste so much.

The word that comes to mind for this tea is crisp. It’s refreshing and bright.

Have to be in the right mood for this one. Actually, the more I drink it the less I love it. It’s a wonderful tea but the pot marigold (calendula) is not really a flavor I enjoy. Really, it’s me. Not the tea. I just don’t like most flower infusions. This could probably make someone else very happy though.

This is not only my favorite Ineeka tea, it’s my favorite green tea. The flavors are so well balanced it’s practically perfect. I believe the package recommends steeping for 3 minutes. I usually steep for more like 5 minutes. For me I don’t find this particular green tea to be more bitter when steeping it longer, just more flavorful.

Added a little milk, but that cut back on some of the spice flavor. Notable taste of cloves.

Still one of my favorites. I like a three-minutes steep best.

I always turn to Darjeelings without thinking, or thinking they’re just another black tea. Then I notice how light they often are and — oh my — refreshing. This one is lively indeed, fresh, and I dig the clever Ineeka bag contraptions (once I figured them out).

The tea comes with a fancy-schmancy in-cup brewing system called the BrewTache. Instead of completely submersing the tea bag, you spread two paper flaps over the mouth of the cup so that the tea bag can hang. It’s meant to replace the trouble of using a diffuser or filter for loose leaf tea and I must admit its kind of cute, if totally unnecessary. That said, it’s a pretty good darjeeling. I steeped it for a little less than 4 minutes and the tea is wonderfully smooth and light. It’s fairly thin-bodied, with a very subtle floral aroma. Very soothing, with a barely-there sweet aftertaste.

This is a lovely black tea, light and smooth but also goes well with food.

Decidedly peppery. Great with chocolate!

Great mint tea. You cant really go wrong with mint though. The packages are nice for when your away from home. You can tell it is quality mint just by looking at the leaves.

Talk about an excellent chamomile tea – smooth, light and relaxing. One of the most wonderful chamomiles I’ve found in awhile, actually. What can I say? I’m a huge fan of Ineeka’s teas right now.

Simply amazing. I’ve found so many chai to be really heavy and sometimes too spicy… But this? Smooth, light and a perfect blend of spices. I really enjoyed this tea, like thoroughly.

I loved this! It was smooth, light and delicious, and a lot of mint teas feel heavy to me. But this was almost magically smooth, feels wonderful going down your throat. Honestly, when it comes to mint teas, this is one of the best I’ve really ever had.
