This tea just arrived at my grocery store. I was out of my loose leaf morning tea and need a temporary replacement. I didn’t expect to really like this tea since I don’t like fruity hot teas. I was pleasantly suprised, it’s certainly got a slightly bitter taste from the berry but it was not too sour and was quite smooth.

As a beginning tea drinker, I found this gem in Canada while on holiday. The name “cleanse” dosn’t describe this tea very well. The flavor name though… “lemon balm & honey” was spot on. Not too sweet but definitely can taste the honey mixed with the slight lemon flavor.

drank Orange Pekoe by Tetley
109 tasting notes

This tastes alright but it is a bit weak. I made 500ml of tea with 1 bag which works great with Red Rose brand orange pekoe tea but it was a bit weak so next time I will use 2 bags or make less tea.

I just love this tea. I am not a coffee drinker and needed a good pick me up in the morning. So when I found this at Walmart a while back I was really surprised how well it worked and the taste was as I suspected. It’s nothing like my fruit green teas buy I got used to the taste. I never go one day without it. Even when I don’t have time, the effects lasts for a couple of days so I don’t mind so much if I run out for one day. I loved it so much that I started ordering it for my local coop store.

drank Strawberry by Tetley

I woke up this morning and drank this tea. It was a pleasant orange pekoe tea but I could barely notice the strawberry. I would have enjoyed it even more if there was a bit more strawberry.

drank Pure Peppermint by Tetley
109 tasting notes

Tastes good but you can only make a small cup of tea unless you want it weak.

I bought a big box of 40 bags on sale but it looks like I will need 2 bags per cup or only drink a 6 to 8 oz serving size so it ended up not being that great of a deal after all.

I had to give up caffeine for health reasons. It’s been over 2 months and I’m still getting brain fog and constant lethargy. This tea is a real pick-me-up and I feel alert similar to drinking caffeine without the buzz that creates anxiety. The taste is pretty good. I don’t mind the bitterness, it makes me feel like the bitter taste jolts me awake.

Just realized that this tea has psychoactive properties. I drank about 4-5 cups and got extremely drowsy and a bit euphoric. This was a problem since I had a driving lesson during I was drowsy. It didn’t hit me until I was on the road. Be careful about operating machinery after drinking. Ginseng actually causes mind alerting effects and I can vouch for that.

drank Mint to Be by Tetley

This tastes like your typical, generic minty tea. Not bad but not the best mint tea I’ve ever had. This was a free sample but now that I’ve had it, I don’t feel the desire to buy a full package.

drank Rooibos Vanilla by Tetley
109 tasting notes

The more I drank the more I appreciated how good this tea tastes.

There is a subtle sweetness along with a hearty wood flavor. The vanilla smell overpowers the rooibos but in the taste department the rooibos taste is still the primary flavor. I am looking forward to enjoying another cup of this tea in the near future.

drank Chai Tea by Tetley

I recommend you go for Tetley’s Vanilla Chai tea rather than this. It tasted too bitter for me. I would have liked it better if there was a bit more of the spices and a bit less black tea.

drank Dream Camomile Lemon by Tetley
109 tasting notes

This was a nice twist on the traditional plain chamomile tea. I recommend this tea on occasion to mix it up. However, most of the time I prefer plain chamomile tea than this blend.

The ingredients include chamomile, licorice root and lemon flavor but chamomile is the only one of these flavors I can clearly identify. I can definitely taste that there is something more than just chamomile but it is hard to put my finger on what it is without reading the ingredients.

Licorice root? hmmm

drank Vanilla Chai by Tetley

In general I am not really into black tea but this is vanilla flavored spiced black tea. I find the vanilla gives this tea just the extra something that allows me to enjoy it.

drank Inspire - Summerberry by Tetley
109 tasting notes

Sumerberries with Rosehip was a mild fruity tea. It was slightly sweet but it did not taste tart like many other fruit herbal teas.

I steeped 2 cups with one bag. The first cup was Ice water steeped for only about 8 minutes then the second cup was about 85 degrees steeped for about 5 minutes. The mild flavor was likely due to the relatively short steeping time for the ice tea and the fact that the hot tea was steeped with the used teabag, but I really enjoyed it anyways.

This is the first rooibos tea I have tried and I really liked it. The name is perfect, it makes you feel like you are curled up on the couch beside the fireplace.

It just gives you a feeling of warmth (not just from the temperature but also from the taste).

I really enjoyed it and I will definitely be drinking this again soon, especially through the cold winter.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Rooibos, Spices

Honey, lemon, ginseng is a nice combination with a green tea. I enjoyed the tea but I would have liked it even better if the lemon & honey flavor were more prominent.

drank Green Tea Plus Aware by Tetley
109 tasting notes

I thought that I would like this tea after reading the package, I really wanted to like it and I really tried to like it. However, I just couldn’t like this tea at all. I was very disappointed.

I made one cup using hot water but it had a terribly bitter after taste. I had trouble finishing the cup. I decided to make a second cup using cold water to see if that would reduce the bitter aftertaste but once again the bitter aftertaste was too much for me.

I ended up throwing out the rest of the tea bags because I never want to taste this tea again and I don’t want give it to anyone else to subject them to this either. Honestly, my taste buds think this stuff is toxic! I would have given it a 0 if that was an option.

Since the average rating was much better than mine I am wondering if I got a bad batch. I won’t be buying any more to find out.

Flavors: Bitter, Sour

Saw this in the cupboard at work. I drank all of the tea I brought to work already in my travel mug and it’s been a busy evening, so I figured what the hay…

I used the hot water out of the water cooler (not sure what temp) and steeped it for only about 1 min, which I know is really short for a rooibos. I know this is supposed to be SPICED plum but all I’m getting is the woody taste of rooibos with the mild sweetness of plum. No spice at all. It’s not a bad taste, just plain. Altogether drinkable. Would not purchase it for myself as it does not wow me, but altogether alright.

I liked the taste of the steamed green tea better than the regular green tea. It is a mild tasting tea and does not have the bitter aftertaste..

drank Pina Colada by Tetley
109 tasting notes

This is a very unconventional herbal tea but it was better than I expected. I enjoyed it but I don’t think this is an everyday tea.

The ingredient list has several other items I didn’t associate with a Pina Colada such as Apple, Orange peels, licorice root and white hibiscus. There is no pineapple or coconut mentioned in the ingredients so I assume the “natural flavors” must include some natural pineapple and coconut flavor.

Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Pineapple

drank Cosmo by Tetley

This tea has a real fresh lively fruity taste to it. It is not for everyone but it is a must try for anyone who likes fruity teas.

The flavors blend together well. The ingredient list contains all natural ingredients / flavors.

This is one of my favorites.

It’s good enough! Tastes slightly fruity and floral. Like a lighter green tea. It’s good to try but I probably wouldn’t make the brew part of my regular tea drinking.

I liked it but didn’t love it. I generally prefer milder green tea like this but I could tell the leaves weren’t the best quality. It’s a standard green tea you’ll enjoy and that is good to keep in your cupboard. But it’s not the tea for special occasions
