A wonderful example of a Japenese tea. This tea has a very strong vegetal flavor, though not unpleasantly so. It is buttery in the mouth and goes down smooth. While wonderful hot, I would not let this tea cool too much as it starts to taste grassy (like drinking your lawn clippings on a humid summer day).

Oof, watch out on the steep times for this one – I let it go a bit long thinking it could take it because it’s rooibos, but instead the apricot just steeped and steeped this into a sour, undrinkable cup. Whoops.

This is one of the most unique rooibos teas I’ve ever tasted – there’s a tartness to it, but it’s a very full-bodied tartness, the aftertaste of an apricot. It’s a very pretty tea in the canister with all the marigold petals, too. I can’t really taste the cinnamon chips at all. Weird, all in all, but not a bad weird by any means.

Lovely light bodied tea with a nice peach accent flavor. Especially good with a little orange blossom honey (I’m not only a tea snob I’m a honey snob too :) )

This is one of my most favorite teas. Tried it with a sweetener for the first time today (agave nectar) and found it tasted even better with just a drop of it mixed in

Nice light tasting tea that was improved by the addition of a small amount of agave nectar to “pump” up the peach flavors.
