a nice little green tea; sometimes I’ll mix it with one of this brand’s other teas if I want something a bit stronger

I’m not much for white teas, as I favor more robust teas, but this one isn’t bad

a nice change from the usual English Breakfast tea

While not as full as I’d like this tea is perfect for a morning pick me up or an evening companion. The hint of plum softens the green tea taste and smooths out the aftertaste very nicely. Try it with sugar & cream for a whole other discovery.

Found a tiny baggy of this in the back of my drawer which is probably several years old. Somehow, it still tastes strongly of blackberry. I probably should have guessed that I’d find blackberry tea to be a bit unpleasant warm – I’m pretty particular about fruit flavored warm teas. This would probably be good cold during the summer.

This tastes like cider, not tea! Not unpleasant, but a little too overspiced for my taste. Still, it was a free sample and that is nice.

I’m ok with this tea, but get cravings for it. I like the black tea base, but the ginger/peach is a bit effervescent. The scent is wonderful, though, and that’s why I usually brew this. Personally, I like tea that has more body.

I like RoT’s breakfast tea line. Not a bad one in the bunch, and it’s nice to have a little variety to choose from in the morning.

My go-to tea if I’ve overeaten. Not eye-wateringly minty. Light and easy on the stomach.

This is the one that got me started on breakfast teas. A good ol’ standby.

Nice and light and not too much mint flavor. Has a slight sweetness to it, so I usually don’t add additional sweeteners.

Got this free sample with the new RoT catalog. I am glad it was free is all I can say.
Smells great, tastes ok, but weak.

It certainly has a strong almond smell and taste, but little vanilla, and really nothing that exciting going on. Might pair well with some cookies. I think it’s funny that the manufacturer suggests a strong brew could withstand pairing with milk, because milk challenged all vanilla notes in my cup. The brew is really rather weak.

This tea in iced tea form is outstanding – comes in a nice bottle too.

This is one of my favorite teas to drink, I especially enjoy the complexity of how both the lemon grass and ginger are vying for my attention. Also has a great aroma!
