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.
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.
Flavors: Rooibos, Vanilla, Wood
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.
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
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.
Flavors: Rooibos, Wood
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
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.
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
This is a standard ‘home brew’ sort of tea. Nothing spectacular or interesting but it does what it’s suppose to do. It’s a good go to brew if you’re on the run. I find it’s tricky to always get the desired taste when steeped in a teacup but the flavours are slightly better with 2 or 3 teabags in a kettle.
A step up from Tetley’s basic peppermint tea. A well rounded blend of minty flavours. I enjoyed it so much with just sugar that I imagine trying it with xylitol might blow my mind. (Xylitol, imo greatly enhances the refreshing cool mouth feeling you get while drinking mint teas)
Flavors: Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint
