I tried the bagged version of this. It is quite good. It has a nice blend of spices, and just a hint of pumpkin to give it a unique twist. The underlying tea flavor was smooth and not at all bitter. I wish the pumpkin flavor was a little stronger, but I think I’ll be buying more regardless.

The fragrance and flavor of this tea really underwhelmed. There was no hint of orange or spice…I really only tasted the black tea. I’ve had this sample in my stash for awhile so maybe it was old. Wouldn’t recommend unless you simply need a hot beverage with little flavor.

I was feeling lazy and wanted something super quick and warm to curl up under the blankets with while it rains and I read, and seeing this on the counter, it fit the bill. I received this and a few other dessert teas samples from Stash, because stash used to be one of my favorites before I became a tea snob, and I never knew they had this kind of variety. So curiosity got the best of my and I requested some.

Because this is a tea bag, I’m not expecting great quality, just something quick and dirty and sweet. That being said, this isn’t half bad. I’m not getting much in the way of tea, but what I’m really getting is tiramisu. Cinnamon, espresso, and chocolate. I can see this being loved by someone who’s not a big tea person, or by someone looking to cure a sweet tooth guilt free, or even to throw in you bag for a quick fix in an emergency.

This is something that if I can find in stores, I would buy a box and leave it at my dads for when I visit for the day.

I love tea, curling up under a blanket and reading a book. :)

I tried the bagged version of this. It’s a pleasant chocolate tea, but I couldn’t taste the hazelnut at all, which disappointed me. It is decaf, which is a big plus for me, since I’m extremely sensitive to caffeine, but it didn’t taste as good as Stash’s Black Forest Cake – it was a bit bitter, and didn’t have as complex a flavor. I’ll probably buy this again though, unless I find a decaf chocolate tea I like better.

This was a rather interesting tea. The smell was somewhat medicinal, so I was a bit concerned, but it tasted good. It was a very mild tea that reminded me of granola – cinnamon, nuts and oats. I think Celestial Seasonings’ Bengal Spice is still my favorite cinnamon tea, but I might end up picking up more of this as it’s a VERY different experience.

I wasn’t a very big fan of this tea. I was grassier than I like my lemon teas, and the lemon flavor wasn’t very strong. It was just kind of unremarkable to me.

I’ve been a fan of Bigelow’s vanilla chai since college. The cafeteria stocked it, so I drank it with some regularity. The problem was that I am very sensitive to caffeine, so I couldn’t drink it as often as I wanted to. So I am very pleased to find a decaf vanilla chai that I enjoy. I might even like this better than Bigelow’s. The vanilla comes through very will, and it’s very smooth, not bitter at all. I will definitely be getting more of this.

I enjoyed this. The vanilla flavor doesn’t come through very strongly, but it is lighter and sweeter than other honeybush I’ve had. I’ll probably buy it again.

I tried the bagged version of this, and it is just as good as it sounds. I really like the blend of flavors here. The nutmeg and clove are most predominate, which is wonderful for me because I love those flavors, and like them to dominate my chai spice blends. I tried it without milk or sugar and it was quite good, but I bet it would be even better with some milk and sweetener.

Flavors: Cloves, Nutmeg

This tea really reminded me of shampoo or soap or something. It must be something about the lotus taste, which is more floral than chamomile, that caused the association for me. People who like light, floral teas might want to give it a try, but I think I prefer straight chamomile.

I bought this tea for the first time two years ago. It was Christmas time, then. This tea goes very well with a nice slice of Christmas fruit cake. I bought another box this year because it’s just so good!

I found this tea to be OK. It’s somewhat weak, and the chocolate flavor (which tastes more like cocoa powder than chocolate) dominates over the orange. A little bit of Xylitol helped bring out the flavor somewhat, but I still don’t love it. It might be better double-bagged or steeped longer, but I don’t know that I feel it’s worth buying more to try that.

Flavors: Cocoa, Orange

This is definitely not my cup of tea. It has an unpleasantly artificial vanilla almond flavor, and is somewhat bitter. It’s disappointing since it sounded so good.

I have a bit of an upset stomach today, so I decided it was a good day for a ginger tea. I’ve had one other lemon ginger tea, by Celestial Seasonings, and I think I actually like that one better. This is a bit more tart, and the lemon flavor isn’t as strong. It’s a good tea, but I prefer the sweetness of Celestial Seasoning’s version, especially for an upset stomach. I think it might be the hibiscus that detracts from the blend for me. I do like hibiscus in some teas, but I’m rather picky about it, and I don’t think I like it here.
