Smells like orange and green tea. Tastes like grassy green tea, a little orange, and almost like a gingery type spice. The orange is slight yet pleasant. I think I would like it better without the spices in it and it just being orange flavored green tea. BUT…I do like this one better that most of the Tea Nation Teas overall…so far.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try!
It has a nice aroma – a little soft but smells nicely of cranberry and also has a light, fresh leafy fragrance in the background. It has a good flavor – clean green tea taste, light on the astringency, and a pleasant sweet/tart taste from the cranberry. Nothing overwhelming, a very good, light tasting tea.
Not all that great…but drinking a cup…
Drinking up the last of this this morning. It’s been an okay green tea, but not one that I’ll run out and get more of anytime soon.
Edited to Ask: I can count this as the first of my Sipdown, right?
I’ve been drinking this one a lot here lately…it’s bright but subtle, and a nice waking-up tea.

I am not sure why I’m having a caffeinated tea at this time of night, but, hopefully I won’t be kept awake since I’ve a lot to do tomorrow!
Very flavorful, tasty, and sweet. I like it.
Hot with milk for lunch. It compliments pulled pork sandwiches pretty well actually.
Accidentally overbrewed this by at least 3 minutes. Surprisingly, it’s still pretty good.
This smells like pure baby powder…not sure that I like that smell! LOL
The taste is pretty much like that too…I know I don’t like that.
As much tea as I drink, I still am finding teas in my cupboard that I haven’t logged and/or have to add to Steepster. I’ve drank this one quite a few times, and just realized this morning that I haven’t logged it at all.
The papaya and passionfruit flavors are well done: subtle, but authentic, and really enhance the green tea base. The green tea itself has both nutty and grassy notes, with a slightly buttery finish. It’s a bit more astringent than many other green teas I’ve had; I think it adds to the tea rather than detracts. Overall, for being a Wal-mart find, I’m pretty happy with it.
So, I’m finally getting around to writing about this tea. I find it a very light Earl Grey but I like it a lot better than Stash’s Earl. It is very nice to drink before bed and at any time of the day really. I bet this would taste a lot better if I didn’t have to estimate steeping time but I have been rushing at college recently. Maybe next time I’ll be able to slow down and actually enjoy a cup of tea.
A nice even green tea part-sweet/part-grassy. A nice plain green tea to have on hand.
BY-JOVE! I think I got it! The trick to The Tea Nation Teas is to NOT over steep! Deeeeer…
Anyhow…this one is somewhat artificial smelling when it comes to the Blueberries but for a bagged tea it’s not bad! The Green tea is more prominent and the blueberry flavor accompanies it! The Green Tea leaves a little bit of a grassy aftertaste but not too intense.
Overall…this is a nice average flavored green in a bag!
This is a nice, strong bagged English Breakfast. I enjoyed a HOT cup as well as a COLD Cup – both were bold and flavorful! A good English Breakfast Stand By in a bag!
Massive Mango aroma from the bag. YUM. The Mango Taste is also quite strong over top of the actual black tea taste. Pretty powerful bag tho and also pretty good!
So far this is my fave tea from The TEA NATION! Good tasting black in a bag with just the right amount of Pom flavoring. Also very good iced!
CRAZY DAY…don’t have much time to write…but…wanted to log…this smells WONDERFUL out of the package! It does lose much of the aroma once steeped, however. HOT is ok but very mellow…COLD seems to bring out the flavors more. This is fairly good! I prefer this one COLD.
I’m a fan of Earl Grey tea. I didn’t use to be. But after trying Earl Grey from Tazo, I was hooked. I found this brand of Earl Grey, and was pleasantly happy with it. Now, it’s not Tazo, but it is good. It’s a black tea, so I can drink it in the morning, and all day long, for a little pick-me-up. Enjoyable.
