I find this tea has a flat taste to it. No richness, no great after taste/smell. The Adagio EG with lavender is much better, as is White Lion (which might just be adagio repackaged, I’m not sure).

This is the first rooibos tea I’ve tried. My wife is an EMT and a gas station attendant gave her a few packs of it to try (he recommended it). She doesn’t really drink hot teas in the warmer months, so I became the beneficiary of the two sample packs.

I took my first sip, after steeping per the directions for 5 minutes, and it had a familiar smell I couldn’t quite place…but other than that it was like drinking hot water. Went and got the tea bag out of the plastic container I had placed it on and dropped it back in the water.

All of a sudden it just hit me like a ton of bricks. I KNOW what this smells like!! It smells exactly like the old pipe tobacco my dad used to smoke, ACK. Definitely not tasty, and I’m seriously considering this being a drain pour…I can’t do it.

I will try a loose leaf Rooibos one day, after the memory of this swill fades from memory.

I had this from a friends, and this was a nice combo. I tasted the white tea distinctly having the sweet hot hay notes it normally has, which in turn provided the soft body for the pear. It tasted like hot pear juice, and did not need any sweetener. I got two good steeps out of it. Something that I would want again, but not something that urges me. Good flavored tea. Tea purists, be warned.

With the addition of tropical fruits like pineapple and orange, this tea tastes… eek. I don’t think I can bring myself to drink another cup… but the tea bag looks so cool! it’s see through and triangular so who knows.

A clean tasting oolong blend with peach, apricot and slight ginger aroma. Had it at PF Changs. Went pretty well with Chinese food. Normally fruit flavored tea taste or smells harsh, but this one had enjoyable peach/apricot aroma. Satisfactory.

In spite of the fact that I have way too much tea, I do tend to be very frugal and try to use what I have or give it away, not just toss a bad one. This one was a little bitter and sour to me hot. I honestly didn’t know anyone who would just love to get their hands on this, so I decided to try it iced. If I make a few big pitchers of it, it will all be used up and I will have saved some of my favorites for more special occasions.

My youngest daughter and I tried it today and it was good. I don’t mind drinking this at all now that it is cold. I used four tea bags for my Bodum iced tea pitcher. I poured a liter of 174F water in and steeped for three minutes, removed the bags, and added water to the top of the pitcher. Then I chilled it in the refrigerator.

The tea is now smoother and I do taste the green. The pineapple is okay but when hot it has the bitter pineapple taste and I wanted a sweeter, more candy like one. With the tea cold, the mint is more refreshing and I am enjoying it more, especially with our 105F heat index. That’s around 40C for you metric system folks. My daughter was just sure I had sweetened it and was surprised when I told her it was absolutely plain.

I have a feeling we will be done with this whole box of tea really soon.

I bought this on a whim at The Fresh Market. The bottom line is that if I had sampled it first, I would not have purchased it. It wasn’t terrible, but it was nothing special. I did not read the instructions, so to be fair I will say that maybe it tastes better made just under boiling like they say. I used 174F water for three minutes. I want to be done with it, so I will make a pitcher of it iced and give the rest to my daughter to see if she likes it.

My best friend tried it, too, and said it was just meh.

Delicious, everyday tea. Very comforting. I get a lot of osmanthus in this. I have a soft spot for osmanthus tea, it’s a tea I always drank to relax in college, so I really like this.

I got this through a fundraiser so at least so ex good came from it. I had purchased tropical green blends before from my local tea shop and figured it would be similar to the green mango that I enjoyed so much. Sadly, I was wrong. I tried shorter steep times, longer steep times, blending it with a plain green tea to cut the flavor a bit. Nothing worked through the whole dang box. As several people have said already it has an odd minty flavor to it that overpowers the green flavor and whatever tropical was they were going for. I finally made a few lattes to kill off the box and they weren’t awful but next time I try to support my cousin’s school I’m getting something else.

There would’ve been a much easier way for me to drink soap during my afternoon break, if that’s what I had intended to do.

drank White Tangerine by Revolution Tea
2064 tasting notes

I am very sure this is what I had at P. F. Chang’s tonight. There was one tea bag that looked pretty large to me in a little tetsubin that was so cute my daughter wanted to slip it in her purse. (Not the sort of thing any of us would actually do, by the way.)

It was pretty golden yellow for a white tea, but tasted really good with our food and had a fresh, lively tangerine flavor. I would buy this if I saw it in the grocery and knew it wasn’t artificial. I will have to look into their flavorings.

This was my first caramel tea when I tried it years ago. This is a smooth, sweet, flavorful tea. Equal parts caramel and t tobacco. It is an excellent replacement for after dinner coffee. I sometimes have it without dessert in place of the sweet. The Insfuser Bag is simply elegant. The stay fresh packaging is a wonderful idea.

My only criticism is of the brewing instructions. Revolution uses the same instructions for black, red, green and white tea. Any research will tell you that there are differences in the brewing processes.

Flavors: Caramel, Smoke, Tobacco

Kind of hard to describe the taste – but it definitely pear-y. Very sweet yet calming. I’m not usually a white tea drinker, but I liked this one.

A well meaning coworker got me a cute little 6 sachet tin of this for Christmas. I am SO picky about earl grey and lavender usually tastes soapy to me :(

It wasn’t as bad as I expected, but definitely not something I enjoy.

The tin is really kind of cool though, it reminds me of one of those old cigarette cases. If I can get the scent out of it I may reuse the tin for on the go tea stash, since it would fit nicely in my purse.

Ick lavender! At least the tin is cute, though. :)


Yeah…I feel bad for any random person in my life who thinks they can buy me some tea…to the layperson I’m a terrible tea snob :P

Terri HarpLady

Me too. Not a fan of the earl, and PLEASE don’t put bubble bath, I mean lavender, in my tea!

Terri HarpLady

Although it’s very nice in a bath :)


I usually hate the tea that other people buy me… :)

Aww, they tried.


I have some of those tins and they’re great for travel. Just the right size for a sample of loose leaf and some empty teabags. I’ve never had one pop open in my bag, but just in case I keep the leaf in a teeny tiny ziploc.

Try filling the tin with water and baking soda. Close. Shake. Soak. Rinse. Should get rid of the lavender smell.


Thanks for the tips Carol Who and Kaylee :)

And yes, lavender is great in the bath…just don’t want to drink it. Glad I am not the only picky one ;)


Yeah, when people ask me what kind of tea I like to try to buy me some as a gift, I usually thwart them by saying that I have way too much already (which is actually true, too).

Before opening the package, I expected this to be a pure chamomile tea, but it wasn’t: it’s mint, chamomile and marigold. Of course, the marigold offers very little flavor to the cup, but, I wasn’t anticipating the mint when I first opened the package. It was a nice surprise. I’m not particularly excited over chamomile, I’d prefer mint over chamomile so I’m glad that I’m going to have a minty flavor to enjoy here too.

A really tasty blend. The mint is strong and the chamomile tempers the minty tones just enough so that I’m not tasting “mouthwash.”

A pleasant blend. I’d drink this one again – don’t think I’d buy it, but, I’d drink it if it was offered to me.

Just the right amount of mint and awesomeness.

I just finished off this cup of caramel. It is a very sweet, dark flavor that is quite soothing and tasty. I will definitely be hitting this one up after a good day of skiing or a salty dinner.

Smooth and robust flavor unlike the ordinary Chamomile teas I have had. Excellent quality in a pyramid bag infuser.
