Hm, well, it’s an odd one. I like Pu-erh teas, not my all time favorites but I can appreciate the nuance and the savory, earthy taste they sometimes carry. This one is pretty good, and the cardamom certainly makes the pu-erh more palatable, but it’s quite disorienting in some ways.
Specifically, it smells like fish when it’s brewing. Fish with a subtle hint of cardamom…sounds like a pretty nice dish, but not necessarily what I imagine when I’m brewing tea. So once it’s finished brewing (I followed Numi’s suggestion of about 4 minutes) it doesn’t taste like fish at all to me.
It’s got the earthiness I’ve come to expect with pu-erhs, and a nice thick body to it. There is a lot of cardamom, and over all it just tastes…okay. I like it, but I don’t think it will sway chai fans, for example, into the world of pu-erh based off of scent alone. And pu-erh connoisseurs may not appreciate the presence of cardamom. It’s not bad, but I just almost don’t know who it’s for…Well, as a fan of cardamom and pu-erh I think it’s pretty good. If you are in that venn diagram, you may like it as well.

A very fragrant and rooibos-y rooibos. Heavy due to the flavours of cedar, wood, minerals, and cream. I think it is more vanilla than cream, actually. Whatever, it is delicious either way. I steeped it hot (boiling water/98 deg C), which creates a much different flavour than steeped in hottish (80-90 deg C) water. It seemed fitting on an unusually cold and snowy day.
I’d like to mention that though I drank this straight, I’ve enjoyed it with milk, honey, or lemon added. Also, try cold brewing it with two teabags in 1L of water in the fridge overnight.
Flavors: Cedar, Cream, Mineral, Rooibos, Vanilla, Wood
This tea is how I first fell in love with honeybush. It is very sweet, flavourful (it re-brewed three times quite well), and smells like nectar. The dark orange brew is also a bit on the woody side, but in a really good way. It has none of the unpleasant quality that tea can have (astringency, tannic, bitter, leafy/grassy/vegetal), it is incapable of being any of those things, no matter how you brew it. A friend of mine keeps herbals around for when company comes over (she only drinks coffee), and I think I’ve almost consumed the entire box now.If you enjoy rooibos and caramelized sugar, you will enjoy this herbal tisane very much. It is a top notch honeybush, but a bit plain when you are used to flavoured blends/variety like I am.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Honey, Nectar, Nuts, Sugarcane, Sweet, Winter Honey, Wood
Not what I expected. I was hoping for chocolate, but what I got was cinnamon. It smells like earthy cinnamon and tastes strongly of cinnamon. Where’s the chocolate?
Maybe the water wasn’t hot enough? I need to invest in a kettle with a built in thermometer because I really have no idea. Either the kettle is whistling or it isn’t, and it takes a good 10 minutes to achieve a whistle.
So I need to try again with hotter, and perhaps less, water. I used 12 oz, might try with 8 oz. And maybe try adding milk or sugar.
I like this cinnamon tea, but when I purchased it I was looking for chocolate.
Long time no reviews. Heck, long time no new tea. In my travels, I decided to get a Numi variety pack. Normally I am loose leaf all the way but at school and while travelling, bags are just simpler.
That said, I didn’t find this to be very special. Black tea. Standard bagged fare for me.
I had high hopes for this one, and they were exceeded! Beyond the tomato and mint, there were additional vegetable notes (onion and peppers stood out the most), as well as a touch of spiciness.
Best with boiling water, indefinite steeping, and a pinch (or two) of salt. Yum!

I got this tea after reading about it in the tasting notes of another tea I like. This one has a faint rose smell before brewing that seems to disappear after brewing.
Flavor white, the rose flavor is gentle, not you your face (although I like in your face). It’s refreshing but not something if you want a bold flavor. Not bad but very gentle.
I heated water to boil then let cool a minute or so first before steeping as the box instructed
I love all the health benefits of turmeric and think this is a much tastier way of enjoying the benefits as opposed to the golden almond milk recipe I tried from Pinterest. I didn’t add any form of sweetener and felt that it was fine on its own. I will continue to drink here and there when I want to get my turmeric fix.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Vanilla
