NOT that you’re having one, but as soon a I read your tasting note I immediately thought “I wonder if it would banish temper tanturms?” LOL Did it work? I hope some one or something brings you the joy today that you deserve.

I’m not sure a “48” would make me Get Happy… Now, a 92, thats definetly Happiness. :-)

wanted a different rooibos for a change. This is sweet and bright, a bit like hard candy in a cup.

wanted something lemony to go with my rosemary olive oil bagel with smoked salmon cream cheese. Made a double mug (2 bags in 12 oz)

Your bagel actually sounds better than the tea, YUM!

I think it was! I love Bruegger’s Bagels.

A light, cheerful morning cup that looks, tastes, and feels like sunshine. Bring on the Spring!

in other news, I think my Copco eco-first acadia mug just arrived (it’s the one that looks like a take-out cup). I’ll have to try it out and review later this week. Of course it would arrive after my morning cuppa is already drained. Guess I’ll just have to make more tea!

double batch – 2 bags in 12oz water

Have a sore throat and am in a bad mood so hopefully it will help both. I like the tea better now that I know what to expect, but still sad that I taste much more lemon than peach.

lovely bright peach & lemon scent from the bag – smells like lemon drops or other sugary candy. Lemon smell seems slightly more medicinal as it begins to steep in 6 oz water for 6 min.

Color: golden yellow-orange
Flavor: honestly, it tastes like medicinal lemon to me (cough drop or theraflu)
Added: 1 tsp sugar, which cut some of the medicinal taste, but is now almost too sweet. forgot it was only 6 oz water – 1/2 tsp or less sugar next time!

Verdict: undecided. It has a cheerful sunny color and upbeat flavor, but I am concerned about the medicinal taste. I really hoped to be blown away. Where’s the peach??? Will hold off rating for now…

tasting a hint of peach, maybe, as it cools. Has anyone tried this iced? I feel like it would be better that way. Right now it’s like warm lemonade!

Warm lemonade? ick. Rishi’s Citron Oolong tastes like that to me.:-/

Jillian

Actually I like warm lemonade, particularly when I have a sore throat.

I too like warm lemonade :) hot lemon herbal sounds really good right now, actually

Maybe I got a bad batch, but yuck!
teabags smelt horrible..but went ahead and brewed. BIG mistake, the smell almost was too much for me, but I did manage a sip before I emptied my pot apologizing all the while for making such a horrible tea in her.

If you are expecting a spicy chai you will be disappointed. I have had this tea in the past however and find it a nice smooth flavored black tea.

I also enjoy this tea with a bit of honey and milk as it’s flavor is strong enough to stand up to that without being lost.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Fantastic! What I really like about this black is that it’s sufficiently mild and subtle in flavor. Most black teas seem to love being bold and full, and while sometimes that’s awesome, I really appreciate the art of nuances and medium body blacks. The color: a lovely deep orange really compliments the hints of mango which seem to dance with a floral aroma. Great for a breakfast tea.

Definitely good, as I’d expect from Republic of Tea. Fruity and sweet without being cloying. It’s no Blackberry Sage, but if I needed a fruity black tea, I wouldn’t say no to this one.

This is a great chai and I do not normally like chai. Spicy but not overly spicy. The green tea is bitter and not smooth. This is a great afternoon tea!
