I was so excited to try this! I bought it on my break and had it ready in the next five minutes. It smelled very nice, a little like chocolate with a slight nutty scent. It’s flavour though was completely lacking. It had a bit of a strange paper-y taste, not terrible to drink, just to have a cup of tea. But completely missed the mark for chocolate and hazelnut. Probably not going to repurchase.

This tea rocks my world. It takes my favorite thing about Earl Grey, and dials it up. It’s the best tea I’ve ever had. The flavor is perfectly balanced to me, and it doesn’t get bitter, even when I steep for too long.

Flavors: Bergamot

Pretty color, but too much cream cheese and not enough cocoa, at least on the first 3 min steep. I may try resteeping, but don’t have high hopes.

This is most certainly extra bergamot-y. My only complaint here is that you really don’t taste the black tea at all. I was hoping this would be like a more bergamot-y version of Bigelow’s earl grey…which seemed to have more actual tea taste to it last time I had it. Oh well. This will make an excellent latte :)

Backlog:

I smelled the mint immediately. I could also smell traces of lime. It’s a pleasantly fragrant tea.

The combination of lime and peppermint is enjoyable. The green tea isn’t overwhelmed: I taste the green tea, I taste the notes of lime and the crisp peppermint notes. I also taste the hint of matcha which does more to the texture than the actual taste of the cup. It offers a nice hint of “creamy” to the texture.

Even though the mint is the strongest flavor of the cup, I think that the lime is the real star because it really brightens up the cup. It’s very vibrant – nice for a bagged tea.

So, I’ve opened up my first tab, at this not so little coffee shop. There is a $5 minimum on credit/debit purchases so I couldn’t get just one tea bag. I must be close to one of the colleges as there are plenty of people here after seven to satisfy my love of people watching.

I was saddened to see, of course after I plopped the tea bag in my mug and poured the water over, that blueberry flavor was the SIXTH item in the ingredient list.

These stash teas are okay but I’m finding myself thinking that I should have brewed something in a tumbler and had the boyfriend drop me at a library instead. These are plain compared to most tea I have at home. These are sort of like flavored water to me for some reason. They are fine to drink in a setting like this but I doubt I will purchase them for my stash.

Sitting a new coffee shop while the boyfriend attends a meeting. I was proud of myself by asking for their tea menu while I was considering ordering their hot chocolate. I love that tea has no calories and helps me stay in goal!

This tea is making me happy. It is tart, sweet, strong, and fruity. There is hibiscus in the title but it is not overtaking the cup like it often does. I absolutely love the color.

This is very meh. The black tea’s bitterness covers the flavors of the green tea, so it just ends up tasting like strange black tea.

This is my favorite peppermint tea. It has the strongest peppermint flavor of all the peppermint teas I’ve tried.

Uh oh. Looks like Steepster is having problems again. Before posting this note, the tea page said there are 5 tasting notes for it, yet only 3 are visible. :/ Look out, Jason! It’s the case of the disappearing notes again!

The dry leaf aroma of this is stirring something in my childhood memory bank, but I can’t pinpoint what it is. For a moment, I thought it was Hubba Bubba Bubble Tape. Anyone else remember this stuff? http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lgo6dfDbRe1qdnc7ho1_500.jpg But this tea is definitely berry flavored and that gum wasn’t from what I can recall.

Unfortunately, this tea’s flavor isn’t nearly as strong or delicious as the aroma. I’m surprised. Usually hibiscus is quite strong, and I steeped this for 5 minutes. Hibiscus is the dominant flavor at the beginning and end of the sip, with the yumberry sneaking in in the middle. The end of the sip is also really tart, which I am confident can be attributed to the hibiscus as well. Yumberry Hibiscus would be a more appropriate name.

Overall, this is only mildly disappointing. I feel like it could be amazing if the yumberry was punched up to be more prominent than the hibiscus. I got this as a free sample at work, so I have no idea how old it is. Maybe a fresher batch would have more oomph. Regardless, I really like the yumberry flavor. I just wish I could remember what it reminds me of…

I received this tea from Ost in one of our swaps. She was so kind to send me this as I haven’t really tried basic tea. Ill admit I enjoy the fruity and dessert fun teas, and as my boyfriend would say “that’s not tea because tea is supposed to be leaves in water and not fruit!” Men… – rolls eyes -

Anyways, as for this tea it smells like jasmine. Very floral like, first few sips weren’t bad however after that I found it bitter and hard to get through I even added sugar and sadly still didn’t enjoy it. Who knows I may have over steeped I get easily distracted, however I’m not a fan :( Ill stick to my fruity and dessert teas haha. Really appreciate being able to try this as I wouldn’t purchase for myself :)

Flavors: Floral, Jasmine

I’m glad that you at least tried! (:

This tea is very smoky, almost too smoky for me to drink. However, when I’m in the mood, it can be nice, and if I liked sweetened teas, sugar or honey would probably help. My partner loves the stuff, though – he can happily drink it all day! If you like smoky teas, this is likely to be a good pick (and for a reasonable price), but if that’s not your thing, then you may want to avoid this tea.

Not bad. I’m not sure if I’m figuring out green teas, or if this one is just naturally less bitter, but it didn’t seem very bitter at all. The melon flavor was not quite as strong as I would like, but was definitely noticeable. I’m still more of a fan of black teas than green, but this was pretty decent. Give it a try if you’re interested in melon-flavored green.s

I had this tea on Christmas, and haven’t been on my computer since. It was rather disappointing after trying Stash’s Merry Mint and Christmas Eve. Both of those had very unique flavors. This tastes like peppermint. There may be a hint of white tea in there, but I didn’t taste the ginger at all. Now, I love peppermint tea – I drink it pretty much every day, but I wish this tasted just a bit more special.

This makes a very nice iced herbal. I really want to swear off sodas again, so I need some good spring and summery cool drinks.
