Great fruity aroma with a perfect hint of the popcorn. Pretty sweet when it hits the back of your mouth, but I like it. Strawberry and apple combine to make the most dominating flavors, but the general fruitiness is smooth and tasty.

Btw, just wanted to add that this loose leaf smells like Pop Rocks! Awesomeness in a bag.

Bought some loose leaf. A bit under-steeped at 9 minutes…is that possible?

This tea is quite the party. I see where it gets its name. I am very interested in the popcorn! I like it alot.

Very smooth and wonderful fruity flavor without being overly sweet. The pineapple and strawberry flavors are just barely peeking through for a great hint of sweet goodness. Steeped for 4-5 mins, but I think I may have used too little tea so it is a little weaker than I would expect (should have used more tea or steeped a couple minutes longer). Also, as a side note that may have affected my tasting, I had a handful of rainbow nerds shortly before my cup of tea…interesting way to approach a fruity tea tasting :)

Not from this brand, it was a blend from a small coffee shop in Portland, OR, but I can’t remember the specific blend or it’s name. It was delicious though, soothed my sore throat.

drank Almond Cookies by Subtle Tea

It tastes pretty much exactly how the name describes it, like almond cookies. Really distinct almond and coconut flavors. Good, not as good as other almond and/or coconut flavored teas I’ve had, but good. The tea is a little watery, but I am starting to think that most of the teas from Subtle Tea are a little on the watery side. That was a little surprising for me, especially since I steeped it for 7+ minutes. Nevertheless, still enjoyable.

This reminds me of the other cacao-flavored teas I’ve had, like common Vienna green teas. I’m usually not a fan of strawberry in my tea, but this one isn’t too overpowering and the slight hint of vanilla is nice.

A calm and soothing flavor. Very delicate green tea and apricot flavor. I would prefer the taste to come through a little more forcefully, but the subtlety is nice and relaxing.

Another favorite. If you like fruit and are still looking for caffeine in the morning, this is a great choice.

This tea, with a deep purple (not the band), red liquor, has a wonderfully sweet fruity aroma that hits you as you bring the cup to your mouth. The first sip comes across strong and the more poignant pomegranate and apple flavors rise to the top of the pack. Then the middle of the tasting came across more bland, just like hot water, than anything else. But finally, the tea finished again with a kick of the more subtle fruity flavors like the raisins, carrots, and vanilla. What makes this tea interesting, possibly drawing me back for another tasting, is the variety of experience from each sip. The many different fruity flavors come out each in their own way at different times in every sip. Every time the tea hits my tongue seems like a slightly new and unique adventure, keeping me guessing and wanting more.

All that’s missing is the caffeine!

A soft tea with a subtle golden liquor. The aroma is slightly earthy with a minor fruity touch to it. Its equally soft to drink, causing a nice calming effect. All of the alleged health benefits aside, it’s a nice relaxing tea. Not sure if its helping my stomach ache yet, but I do feel more relaxed.

At first, the aroma is very pungent and the deep chocolate smells emanate strongly from the dark colored liquor. I added a little milk and honey to soften the kick of the black tea flavor. Upon tasting I was definitely surprised, but a little disappointed. The chocolate hits you hard and fast but its more of a harsh malty chocolate flavor than a smooth milky chocolate flavor. I can maybe get a hint of the strawberry in the aftertaste and the vanilla softens the blow of the chocolate, but the chocolate remains king. Its quite powerful and lingers even after you have finished the sip. I actually found this aftertaste to be the truest chocolate flavor and most enjoyable of the tea. Overall it was a decent experience, but being that I prefer softer more fruity teas and blends, I don’t think I would come back to this. But if you like darker richer blacks, this could be a nice treat for you.
