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!

I can’t get enough of the smell of this tea! Nice minty flavor with what is basically just a green tea.

Feeling a little hoarse today? This is a deliciously revitalizing and energizing tea, especially after you add a tablespoon of honey. It has a very round flavor, thick almost, but very smooth.

I was quite surprised by this tea. Taste pretty good although I think the best thing about it is its wonderful color.

When I opened the canister I wanted to eat the bags right there and then! I have gotten used to The Republic of Tea’s “powdery on purpose” tins, so the cloud of coco dust didn’t surprise me and I certainly don’t mind chocolate wafting through the kitchen.

I was very excited for this tea, I had been expecting so much from it. What I got was a weak coco, like when you make the “prepare with milk” coco packets and accidentally make them with water.

I added the bags back in per some other reviews.

Next time, 3 bags, and maybe some milk.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Solid, yet mellow flavour.
This tea serves well this afternoon as I sit, sip and finish my correcting. I let this one steep a little too long but it’s not overpowering.

This is one of my decaf favorites, both hot and iced. Because of the blackberries, the iced >tastes

Although I tried this many times, People’s Green was too grassy for me (as in I went to my yard & mowed some for tea). I have a couple of traveler’s tins of this and when stuck away from home and mistakenly taking only these, haven’t been able to find the taste that I can enjoy in this tea.
I’ll try it with some of my stronger teas to see if it can be moderated; otherwise it’s going in my swap pile. #tea

i love putting this herbal tea in my yerba mate. really adds a sweetness to the mate, and doesn’t inhibit the qualities of mate. Plus, good for colds too.

When I smelled the bag I thought I would hate it (I notice this becoming a trend with fruit teas, I should learn) Anyway, this is a nice tea, the tea really is smooth and there’s just enough mango flavor. I like how it’s naturally sweet but not too sweet.

a good try at earl grey. don’t over-brew, and I find I get tea drunk really quickly on this (that kind of ‘too full’ feeling). good for afternoons instead of coffee.

wow. really amazing tea. multiple brews make sure you get equal parts fruit and green tea taste. I cut it up after it is finished to get even more out of it. I’ve even taken it out, put it in the fridge and brewed it two days later, and it still tasted great. well worth the cost.

This is one of my favorites as well. I love the cardamon & cinnamon scents and flavors. Unfortunately, I find this is one I cannot re-steep for the same taste as the first cup. Still love the first though.

I find this delicate white tea a great pick-me-up in the morning, if I have enough time to enjoy rather than toss back a mug and run. #tea

Drink this straight all day when working. Can taste the cardamon & other flavor notes clearly. One of my favorites. #tea

Mmmm, I’ve discovered that this tea goes remarkably well with a spoonful of hot chocolate mix added to it. ;D

I think pretty much any black tea is good w/ hot chocolate mix:) Or drinking chocolate mix if you like even more chocolate

Cofftea

Oops this isn’t a black. I was confusing it w/ another.

The tea is more chocolately-tasting after a longer steep – or rather, caroby-tasting as I can usually pick up a slight difference in the taste of the two – though I’m a big fan of both.

I added milk, which I’m not usually wont to do with herbal-based teas, but this one is definitely complimented by it; I think it’s the carob and the malt in the blend.
