the leaves reminded me of bonito flakes, kinda smelled a little fishy. The end product has an aromatic wisp of cotton candy, but it’s a pretty typical green tea with a itty bitty smokey tinge. Overall, it’s simply good. I may have over steeped it because my pupkins grabbed my attention after the timer went off.
I took a nap, woke up and finished off the pot of now cold tea. This tastes a lot like genmaicha

Produces a bright green colored great tasting tea. One of my favorite greens.

Understeeped and it’s all about the coconut. Today I am ok with that…I wonder, tho, what it would taste like if I infused for 10 minutes for the full richness and added Chocolate Soymilk or Chocolate Almond Milk??? I just might have to try that out!

i did 7 min w/ almond milk….and it hid the flavor (1 bag 6 ounces) perhaps 10 might have done better?

Another swap! YAY!
The smell of this totally reminds me of a vegan chocolate coconut cookie I used to make a while back. That’s exactly what it smells like.

The flavorings are high but the tea taste itself is a little weak.

It’s certainly a dessert tea, indeed. Not bad but certainly not one I would drink everyday!

So happy to add it to my stash tho! Thanks Nicole!

This has been sitting in my cabinet for a couple of months now. I have been afraid to try it, because I haven’t been too impressed with the Superfruit Teas TRoP has; Blueberry is the exception.
While brewing, it reminds me of bubble gum, the color took a while to emerge, but it began to arise like a red snake slowly dispersing in swirls.
Three minutes is maybe a bit too long for this blend. It is a smidge tart and bitter, but unlike most teas with hibiscus, I don’t feel like I have to force it down.

This was my first red tea, and after a moment of adjustment, I rather enjoy it. Normally I stick to greens, but my sister gave me a tin of Good Hope Vanilla to try it out. Also, I rarely go for flavored teas, being more of a ‘tea is tea’ person, however, I continue to enjoy this the more I drink. The vanilla flavor is excellent, there’s enough there to notice, but it’s not overwhelming. The creaminess of the tea was almost surprising at first, but again adds to the character and doesn’t ‘steal the show.’ I’m enjoying the color very much, a deep burnt sienna. I recommend it, and will most likely keep a tin on hand for an after-dinner drink (as it’s naturally caffeine-free).

There’s actually no tea in it, so it’s more like an infusion of apples and spices. Very tasty, and nice when I want something light before bed. I found it for about half price at Big Y, and I just couldn’t leave it there in good conscience.

P.S. I’ve also discovered that pouring real apple cider over a bag of this tea and heating it up in the microwave produces a very nice single serving of legit hot spiced apple cider without having to mix up an entire pot. A whole pot is great for parties, but not so much when you’re home alone and just want one cup. It may not be exactly the same, but it is a worthy substitute!

This tea tastes like chocolate covered strawberries! Fantastic! I don’t usually care for the fruity, sweet teas, but this one is just so good!

Mmmm… I was really craving a strongly flavored chai this morning, and this is definitely strong. I love how this is so strong and warms you all over (thank goodness it has been really cool out this week). I don’t like this one as much as the red counterpart, but it Is still quite yummy.

This is the last cup of the pot I made the other day :( Luckily I have plenty more of the tea left. This cup is a little spicier than the others, but it is just as good.

Had this again … This time iced (I put the rest of the pot from earlier in the fridge). It is pretty good iced. The added sweetness from the honey comes through more, but it doesn’t overpower the tea.

I made a pot of this tea this morning as a little treat before an 8 am exam. I added a bit of republic of teas chai spiced honey to the pot. It tastes really nice. This cup isn’t sweet really but it doesn’t have the sharpness of spices that I have experienced with this tea before. It is very smooth.

So I am currently enjoying my 2nd attempt at a homemade chai tea latte. I think the second attempt turned out better than the first. It seems to have much more tea flavor, and I even used a milk frother so it has the foam on top like when you get it at a coffee place. I am definitely enjoying!

P.S. thanks cofftea I used your advice!

Cofftea

Glad it worked for ya! Which ratio did you use?

Caitlin

I used the 1:2 ratio and used the same amount of tea with less water. It was quite flavorful.

Made my first chai tea latte today using this. Used 1/2 cup tea and 1/2 cup milk w/ 1 teaspoon chai honey. It was pretty good. Although next time I think I would use a bit less milk. Not bad for a first try.

Cofftea

Caitlin, if I may offer a suggestion… instead of using less milk just use the same amount of tea you would for a regular cuppa steeped in less water forming a concentrate. Using 1/2 the amount of tea greatly dilutes the flavor making it even more difficult for it to come thru the milk. I’ve personally found this absolutely necessary to enjoy a tea latte. Another water/milk ratio I enjoy is 1:2 as per a typical latte. Have fun experimenting!:)

Caitlin

Thanks for the advice. I am completely new to this. I just got this awesome chai latte kit from my boyfriend so I figured I should figure out how to do it.

While I began drinking this I noticed something very familiar in this, but I couldn’t isolate the subtle flavor and thought that the sunflower seeds I had eaten earlier where tainting my palette. I looked to see what else was in this and turned out that it has sunflowers in it. The blending of mango and sunflowers is a very nice complement. This may become a new favorite.

Well, I haven’t tried this blend from any company except The Republic of Tea, so I can’t compare it to similar blends. However, I love this tea in the morning! It’s got kick, it’s got deep flavor, and it’s got caffeine. I recently kicked my (too many cups of) coffee habit, and this tea is a nice substitute. I drink this tea in the morning, plain and nice and hot.

I do like this tea, but it seems a little… bland. Not in a bad way! It’s just very subtle, somewhat ‘warm’ and innocuous. Perhaps it is the orange I ate for breakfast, but I was disappointed with the lack of orange blossom aroma or taste. That said, it is sweet and has that earthy taste I like.

I’m a big fan of Republic of Tea, and especially orange flavored black teas. This one has a nice strong black flavor with a hint of cranberry and blood orange. It has a slight citrus flavor without being overpowering.
