I thought this was quite an enjoyable cup of tea. My hubby is not a fan of many teas and he really liked this one. I steeped it according to the package directions but may go longer to try and get more of the caramel flavor.

I love a good spicy chai. The bad news was there wasn’t much spice that I could smell in the loose tea (even if it was in a sachet). This made me a little sad…like I said I love a good spicy tea. More when I’m feeling a bit stuffy.
BUT I was willing to wait to give it some redemption while it steeped. I thought for sure the spices would come out to play then. I was half right. I could smell the cinnamon and ginger and that was about all. Still it was better than nothing, right? Of course right! After the four minutes were up (it was suggested to give this tea 3-4 minutes) I gave it a little stir and took a sip. Everything the package promised was there…but muted. This wasn’t good.
So I added a few shakes of vanilla sugar and a bit of soy milk. Let me tell you those two additions kicked this Chai up! I tasted everything and I couldn’t drink this tea down fast enough after my additions were made!

I hadn’t checked out my Revolution teas recently so I brought them to work all last week. This one is most definitely still my favorite! It’s so light and refreshing, probably one of my favorite white teas I own.

Many thanks to Sonia at Revolution Tea for this sample. As you all know I do try green teas, but we never seem to hit it off. Which is why I was putting off trying this tea from Revolution Tea. But I have to admit I’m surprised! Maybe the Italian Bergamot? Maybe my palate is expanding? Whatever it is…I like it!
For some reason with the bergamot mixed with the green tea the citrus flavor is somewhat toned down. More than I have found in those EG’s made with black tea. Both the tea and flavoring go hand in hand with this tea. Which leaves me with a clean fresh finish. It also leaves me happy to have another sample to try iced!
Ohh this is a nice earl grey, I really love the smell of lavender though in all honestly I don’t get much of the taste (IDK WHAT DOES LAVENDER TASTE LIKE ANYWAY?), could be because I added milk though. BUT ANYWAY it is quite delicious!
Again thanks to Sonia for the sample! This one is a winner in my book. Really sweet and full of caramel flavor! Best part there was no need to add anything extra to this one. It really has it all! Plus it also happens to be caffeine free….which now makes me wish I had tried this one tonight before bed and not first on my list of teas to try today. Ah well live and learn. :)

I had this tea the morning of my little sister’s wedding and I have to say I wasn’t super impressed. It was good, but not “wow” enough for me. However, the chamomile and mint with the hint of honey in the tea did help with the tickle in my throat that I woke up with. So it did have that going for it. Perhaps some more mint needed to be added to this one? Like I said not bad, but not one I’ll be adding to the cupboard.
Good green flavor and not too earthy is definitely a good way to describe this! Nothing much more to say about it, but it’s yummy and simple and probably higher on my list of bagged green teas.
In comparison to Trader Joes white pom tea, I think this one comes in second. It’s not a bad tea by any means, but just doesn’t have as strong of a pom flavor, which I personally love. The white tasted pretty good though! Yeaaah!
Generally a fresh and fruity green tea! Not TOO fruity or fake tasting, either. It’s not a total standout tea, but it’s a great staple if you’re looking for a simple healthy berry green in a bag I suppose!
I LOVE PEARS and you can definitely smell the pear in this! The tea is refreshing and delicate and not OVERLY fruity or sweet in the least. A great tea when you’re in the mood for something smooth, clean and light!
This is a very enjoyable English Breakfast blend. The blend is very robust and strong, exactly what I want from a breakfast blend. It has a rich, delicious flavor. One of the better bagged English Breakfast blends that I’ve tried, but it is still limited by its sachet.
Another BB for today!
This one is pretty good. It’s Orange and Spice…just like it says. Possible a bit more clove than the other spices but overall it was quite pleasing.
Bleh! Very fake tasting. I took one sip and poured it down the drain. So sad.. I’ve tried pear flavored white teas before that were delicious.
Hardcore Mint…in a silken pyramid bag…awesome if you love mint! Good for me…I DO!
Excellent Minty-Fresh flavor!
This is a serviceable and pleasant tea. The dominant flavor comes from the honeybush and the roiboos. Like others, I had been hoping for more of a caramel flavor, but once I got past that I enjoyed it.
Sometimes I really like INTENSE Pom Flavor when done correctly. Sometimes I prefer a more subtle Pom flavor. THIS is one of those more subtle Pom flavors that I am enjoying and appreciating. It’s a nice flavored white. The after taste is more of a Pom/Black Berry type flavor tho. There is a bit of an ‘odd’ texture in the middle of the sip that pops in and out quickly, too. It’s almost like Burts Bees Lip Balm or something. But the texture is brief, thankfully. It’s not bad, just something I noticed.
Overall – this is fairly pleasant.
I’m thinking it would be even better iced.
I’m generally skeptical when it comes to bagged tea, especially when it comes to bagged Oolong. Oolong usually expands more when it brews than other tea types, and it needs adequate room to fully express itself.
However, I was very happy after I steeped this tea and saw that there was still room to spare in the pyramid sachet. It gave me hope that the tea would be tasty.
And it is. It has a pleasant, smooth flavor, with a touch of smoke and a nice roasted fruit flavor … as if someone took peaches and apricots and roasted them to concentrate their sweetness … that’s what I taste here. Very enjoyable, a soft texture and a light flavor that is well-balanced and nicely round.
