I am lovin’ this one! I’ve worked the bag down several cups and brought it to work today to enjoy. It’s not what I would call a morning cuppa, but it’s just a nice tea to enjoy when you’re not sure what tea to start your day with. :)
Oh my gosh! I can’t believe no one has rated this one yet! I’m glad to be the first:) I can’t believe it took me so long to try this one (well I did have a million others I wanted to try from swaps and purchases SOO…..). I tried rating it on their website but it was over 500 characters, lol! So, I came here instead – I would have come here anyway but I know companies like it when there are reviews right on their website.
I’m going to give you two words….pure bliss.
It’s a simple blend of gunpowder green tea and peppermint.
This blend is simply delicious! It reminds me of Tazo Zen green tea blend (which I also really like). There is a nice balance of both the green tea and peppermint. I’m usually not a huge fan of peppermint (toothpaste, gum, etc) but this is so well done I love the minty aftertaste it has. Well… maybe not “aftertaste” but “lingering essence” maybe? Aftertaste seems a negative connotation. No silly artificial flavorings added or spicy stuff (like Davids Tea North African Mint Green – the closest thing they seem to have to a “mint green” unfortunately:(…it’s not bad but just not exactly what I was looking for like with this one).
I steeped 2tsp in a large Thumper mug I have from Disney. I used my Davids Tea Timer/thermometer and filled have the cup with boiled water…waited for the temp cool down. When it beeped (at 159) I put in the tea bag and the rest of the hot water (but it stayed around 170 instead of the 160 that is recommended …oh well it still tastes amazing).
Whenever I get access to updating this tea’s information I shall update it:)
Nice to see that I’m not the only one enjoying this tea. It perks my spirits up a little after hearing about what happened in Boston. :(
I recently splurged on 4 ounces of this tea because I love it so much. It’s the perfect blend of black and green, mint and bergamot. Currently keeping it in the bag it came in but am thinking about getting some of those Adagio 4 oz tins.
I no longer add sugar to this tea, just steep it for 2 minutes in 160 degree water and it’s good to go. Thinking it will taste good iced in the summer. I am also beginning to wonder how this tea will taste with a little milk. But it’s so good on its own I do not want to risk spoiling it.
I also still really love the smell of this tea and think it would make a great scent for a body wash.
Another tea I missed trying after the Victoria tea meet. Again, from CrowKettle. Heh. I think I need to re-inventory my teas and start a “haven’t tried yet” box.
This tea is a sweet milky orange oolong. It’s not too vegetal from this first steep (yay!) and the milky flavour of the oolong goes so well with the orange.
I accidentally let my water cool for about 15 minutes, so the temperature wasn’t hot enough for the leaves to fully unfurl. However, it’s produced a really nice, light, orange flavoured cup.
It’s a bit of a toss-up between this one and Della Terra’s Orange Brulee. This one doesn’t have that dark sugary/caramel taste, and because of that I feel that it’s not nearly as sweet of an orange flavour.
I might try mixing them to see what I get. :)
This is a wonderful chai with a good spice. I like my chai spicy and pepper this is both. I will be putting this on my go to list.
Took me a few days longer than I’d hoped to try this tea again. The first time I had a cup before bed, I slept very badly (though not so much more so than usual that I would blame it on the tea). Last night, I tried two cups. Still tasty, if nothing else! Well balanced and soothing. I slept fairly well, but now I can’t say that my sleep was so much better than usual that I could chalk it up to the tea. So the score is 1-1, and I will keep trying!
Mmm… blueberry. This smells so good! I do love blueberry. The flavour is nice like berries. I don’t even mind the other fruit or hibiscus.
It’s even better with vanilla rooibos.
I’m surprised I’m the first to review this one!
This is a true gem for minty and spicy tea fans – as I am. I purchased this recently while obtaining the Sleepy Bear tea (which has a koala on it, so I had to get it). I wanted to round out my order so I got a few teas to sample but put my faith in my love of mint and spice (and green tea) for this one. I wasn’t disappointed!
This has a light taste – thanks to the green tea – but the mint and spice combo is out-of-this-world! It’s unique but refreshing. I taste anise and cinnamon, two of my fave spices. The blend of peppermint is sweetened with spearmint, which is light but there.
This is a great after dinner tea, and I’m sure it’s amazing iced! Will try that out soon as spring/summer are approaching (YAY – finally)! :)
I don’t sleep well, so I am perennially on the hunt for a good bedtime tea. This tea was mentioned somewhere on the discussion boards and the name (and positive review) piqued my interest. I ordered on Saturday and it got here Monday – with free shipping! Plus it was reasonably priced, so the company has made a really positive first impression.
Now for the tea itself. Dry and brewed, it has a fairly mild smell of chamomile, spearmint, and grass. It brews up a light yellow color that reminds me of sunflowers. The taste is like chamomile with a hint of lemon, and spearmint on the back end. I want to say that I can taste the valerian, but I’m not familiar enough with that flavor to say for sure.
This is easily one of the best chamomile teas that I have ever had; I would only put Harney and Sons chamomile on the same level. I don’t know yet whether this will actually help me sleep, so I’ll update tomorrow.
boiling water, 1 tsp for 8 oz, steeped 7 mins, per package instructions
I must admit that earl grey teas are not my favorite. My experience with them is that they’ve been a little bit too bitter, drying and sharp. My friend did give me a nice earl grey from The Tea Spot and I enjoyed that whole tin. I also have sipped Teavana’s earl grey cream, but I found myself wanting a bit more cream.
I know that some love earl grey cream teas so much.. and after seeing the potential of Teavana’s blend, I thought it was time to try more! This tea smells very much like a typical earl grey, but with the addition of something else… milk perhaps?
Sipping… ah.. that signature bergamot taste. This one is very smooth, though and has somewhat of a creamy finish. The cream doesn’t overwhelm the blend, but adds just a hint of softness. It’s delicious even though I would like more soft, lovely cream! I will definitely finish the rest of my bag, but I’m still on the hunt for the creamiest earl grey out there!
Sipdown! Chocolate teas and rooibos blends have a rough history with me but I enjoyed this one despite it all. Before I order more I want to check out Silk Road’s Chocolate Panda herbal blend again, but it’s a toss up between the two.
This blend made me realize that rooibos can smell like old cigarettes/cigars/tobacco (can you tell I don’t smoke?) and, against all logic, I actually don’t mind it at all. I guess I enjoyed the odor of gasoline as a child too, so their is prescience for liking awful, harmful smells on this end. Yay me?

Midnight (Beastmaster) sipdown.
This tea smells so good. It’s more like caramel dry, and a bit like caramel cappuccino brewed. The flavour is sweet and creamy like vanilla caramels.
I’m not sure how I feel about this one yet.
This is my first black & green jasmine blend. I think the vanilla helps bring the flavors together. It is a little perfumey but not necessarily in a bad way. It tastes pretty good, very fragrant. I like the way it makes the room smell. haha. Its pretty different. I think I still prefer green jasmine pearls but it was fun to try. Thanks Azzrian!
This blend isn’t too bad. It smells lovely…like pomegranates. Once brewed I get a vague smell of cotton candy of all things! Even the first intial sips taste like cotton candy. I can taste the black tea. There’s a nice balance of fruitiness and black tea. The fruit kind of lingers on my tounge the longer I let it sit. Perhaps adding sweetener would make it spot on? Perhaps with a future steeping:)
Awkward back story! This tea wasn’t originally a part of my initial online order. One of the random teas I’d selected was out of stock, and someone from New Mexico Co. phoned to inform me about that during the Christmas season. She offered to substitute in a similar tea instead… and I replied by telling her she could pick whatever she wanted and I could just find out when they emailed the adjusted receipt. Clearly I need to work on my early morning phone call skills. Decisions were made that I was happy to have no part in, and this chocolate rooibos found its way into my possession.
I actually like this rooibos a lot. I’m not always a fan of chocolate, or rooibos, but I’m happy with both here. The leaves have a chocolate liquor smell and the flavour is like that of rich dark chocolate bar with fruit and nut notes. At least for me, this one isn’t cloying in anyway, despite the cocoa and vanilla, which makes it easy to drink later in the evening.
Edit: for non-rooibos fans,you can definitely taste the base in this one.
I’m glad this one came my way! Now I just need to figure out if I want more or not.

After drinking this multiple times next to 52tea’s Coconut Cream Pie I’ve decided this is the one I’m keeping in large quantities. While 52’s offering is slightly more sugary and brisk than this NMTC sample, Coconut Cream Pie is still delicious and tastes exactly like cream pie right at the lukewarm stage. I may keep a small amount of the Cream Pie around for summer. One can never have too many coconut teas.
A note from LiberTEAS pointed me in the direction of this tea and company, and I’m very grateful for it. The coconut flavour and the black base are both perfectly creamy and smooth. There’s no cloying sweetness, or a crazy amount of ingredients. It’s a simple coconut tea and it’s awesome.
annnd sip down!
1oz sample didn’t last long – I guess it doesn’t help that it’s a heavy fruit tea. I got 3 cups out of this, 2 of them iced – this being the last iced.
I tossed in some fresh blackberries in my iced tumbler along with lemon slices! I’m hoping I’ll find a really good fruit only tea out there so I can load up for iced teas all summer.
I purchased this for the peach-faced lovebird picture and stuck around for the straightforward, soothing cup it created.
All peach flavoured teas and tisanes that I’ve tried thus far have reminded me of fuzzy peaches candy. This one doesn’t break the mold but that’s ok. I like fuzzy peaches.
The rooibos is noticeable but it blends well with the peach flavour, tart blackberry leaves, and the salty sweet calendula petals. It’s juicy and sweet but it also makes my mouth pucker. This is another cup that I think will be great for a warm summer evening. I’m so very ready for spring and summer right now.
I think this would be more peach-faced lovebird if they used green rooibos, for a green “body” and peach “face”, just for kicks… I miss my loud, strong-willed bird. It’s always the pets.
Made a pot of this at work today. I forgot about it and it steeped for about 20 minutes! O.O
It was delicious. The longer steep brought out smokey notes and reminds me somewhat of coffee. A strong several cups to get me through the day. It might not be what this tea was intended to be, but even at that long a steep it was still a good tasting cup.
No rating on this one as I’ve already rated and see no need to change it.
Oof. Just got back from having dinner with friends. They decided to cash in our wedding present to them and get dinner at our local Brazilian grill. I didn’t eat all day in anticipation of the feast.
My tummy is seriously angry with me. So. Much. Meat. I’m thinking this might be soothing.
Dry leaves smell more like bergamot than anything else. Steeped liquor is a lovely dark honey color. The bergamot is what I notice first. Then at the end of the sip, the cool of the mint comes to the forefront. This is a nice, balanced cup and my tummy is approving.
This hibiscusy fruit tea has an good strawberry flavor. Very tart tea! Iced, the raspberry and blackberry flavors come out nicely! However, I found this tea kinda flat despite all the fruityness going on.
Overall, this tea was pretty good iced and sweetened with lemon to cure the flatness and have the berry flavors pop!
