I was so excited by this new addition at my local grocery store: bags of loose-leaf tea alongside the boxes of Lipton and Bigelow! I haven’t tried much from this brand before, but this one sounded tasty and the price was pretty good: $5 for 1.5 ounces. I’m not sure what makes this an “energizer” tea, as the ingredients list and flavor indicate that it’s simply a fruit-flavored black tea. However, the flavor is quite pleasant: natural-tasting raspberry and passionfruit with a slightly tart note in the aftertaste. I may have to try some other flavors next time I stock up on groceries!

Flavors: Passion Fruits, Raspberry, Tart

Haven’t seen Tiesta in grocery stores yet; we can get it at local health food place, but it’s significantly more expensive than what you snagged it for. Their nutty-appley variety (can’t remember the name) is good.

Thanks for the recommendation! I seem to recall seeing a nutty herbal blend that I passed up because there was hibiscus in the ingredients list; maybe I’ll give it a shot next time.

Ah…(looked it up)…Nutty Almond Cream.

Tiesta usually has a 50% off Black Friday sale online, just FYI ;)

Has a sweeter smell than other chai teas that I’ve bought, but once brewed it’s pretty much your average grocery store tea — not bad by any means, but nothing to write home about.

Delicious tea! It might sound weird, but the slight tartness reminds me a lot of apple pie à la mode; it’s very apple-y and cinnamon-y without being spicy, and it has a nice smooth, sweet cream finish. Will definitely be buying some of this again <3

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon

drank Blueberry Wild Child by Tiesta Tea
1458 tasting notes

Found this today at Bed, Bath, and Beyond where I also bought a Breville Tea Maker. I brewed this with the Breville. I clearly don’t know what I’m doing with the Breville. When I poured my cup I got tea all into the rest of the tea. I didn’t think you had to remove the basket to pour the tea but I must have been wrong or I didn’t latch the thing properly, not sure which. As to this tea, it’s a tasty herbal with blueberries as the main note. Not sure which of the other flavors I’m tasting.

I brewed about 6 tsp leaf with about a liter of water in my Breville tea maker for about 5 minutes. I think this tea will get made primarily iced though.

I’m not sure if I’m steeping this wrong.. but to me it tastes like red wine! I can only enjoy this tea when it’s mixed with lemonade or any sweet drink.

This is a tasty herbal tea that tastes a lot like Forever Nuts by David’s Tea. Same basic ingredients. It’s super-creamy and sweet, just right for a midafternoon break. Because it’s herbal, I think you could give this to a kid and allow them to enjoy it without flying off the handle. (Have you seen a kid on caffeine? It’s hilarious. I say this as a childless person who always hands the kids back.)

It’s a bit weak, flavor-wise, so I recommend over-leafing and over-steeping. I think the issue is that the nuts, due to their shape, don’t pack as tightly as the little tea leaves do in side a tea spoon. I could be wrong, but it sounds scientifically valid, doesn’t it?

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Nuts

You are certainly onto something. The first time or two that I tried this tea, I didn’t care for it. It was weak and watery. But THEN, I had a stroke of common sense and thought to myself, “Well, gee, if it is weak I wonder what it would do if I added MORE than the suggested amount.” And ta-da. It became much more creamy and flavorful after doubling or tripling the suggested ratio.

Backlog from the other day. I had this tea iced since most fruity teas I just don’t enjoy them hot. Anyway this was a tasty iced tea. Perfect for a warm day. The rooibos was a nice touch it adds a very subtle nutty flavor to the blend. Don’t think I will be purchasing a full size of this but I am glad I tried it. Still on the search for the best herbal/fruity blend to make for iced tea.

Yep, this tea is exactly like DT’s All the Nuts, Crazy Nuts, Nuts for You, or whatever it is called herbal. Nothing more to say about that.

Flavors: Apple, Baked Bread, Cinnamon

Apple Pie. If you like this, you should try St. Nick’s Surprise.

By itself or mixed with black tea, it’s reminiscent of Teavana Amandine Rose, which I miss, but sadly it isn’t quite as good.

I’ve never reviewed a tea, was on here looking for new teas to try, but I had to review this one. Tiesta Tea’s relaxer tea is one of my favorite teas of all time. If I had to choose one tea to have forever (after a perfect green oolong) this would be it. Be warned, I do not drive after having this tea it makes me so relaxed/sleepy. There’s no chamomile here, so I’m not sure how it works it’s magic. It also takes longer to brew than a regular tea. But the wait is so very worth it. This tea is like dessert in a cup, specifically, like apple pie in a cup. Tiesta Relaxer tea is delivered to our home once a month via Amazon subscription and it’s gone at the end of every month. If you haven’t tried yet, I would consider this a must try tea.

First things first, I do not like hot green tea so my only experience is with this iced. And it’s pretty darned good. I made a 64 oz pitcher, so 4 tablespoons of tea. 8 Splenda packs. I like my teas on the sweet side. It’s nice and fruity, but you can still taste the nice green.

Thankfully I found it at Giant, so I can buy more without having to place an order with Tiesta.

Oh my goodness, Fireberry.

This has to be my favorite tea right now.

So wonderfully tart with cranberry and deliciousness.

Don’t need to add too much sweetener, just enough to balance the tart. Also tastes delicious hot or iced!

This is one of my favorite teas ever! I prefer over David’s Tea’s Forever Nuts. I just think the flavors blend better together.

I find I do not need sweetener, but adding 1 Splenda pack makes it taste like and almond cookie :D

I just finished this blend today. I’m usually not big on flavored teas (call me a tea “purist”), but this one is a nice blend. It reminded me of apple crisp, with a heavy dash of cinnamon. However, it’s a good dash of cinnamon.

The best way to drink this tea is to steep it for approximately 10 minutes. 6-9 minutes is good, but the 10 minutes is just right. I find that the apple/cinnamon start to form a perfect apple crisp-esq quality. Therefore, if you want to cut out the dessert, but want the flavor, drink this. Plus, it’s great for kids!

drank Chai Love by Tiesta Tea
438 tasting notes

This is a nice chai! It seems to strike the right balance between spicy and sweet: cinnamon and ginger are both present, but neither is overpowering and the cardamom adds a nice depth. The base tea is robust, but not bitter. This is one I could drink plain, but it’s even better with a dash of milk (and I’ll bet it would be lovely as a latte!). I don’t love it quite as much as my all-time favorite Reena’s Chai from TeaSource, but it’s proving to be a good substitute until I’m able to order more of that one.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spicy, Sweet

I picked this up today from Stop and Shop (!!!) because I figured it was a better option than picking up some RUNA tea bags. Next time I go grocery shopping I miiiight end up getting the fireberry as well.

I grabbed this because I need more herbals in my life, I’m specifically fond of fruit teas so this was right up my alley. Unfortunately, the blueberry was totally overpowered by the rest of the tea. But I did taste some pineapple, which is good but weird. I wonder if I mixed this with a little rooibos if it would taste like the Teavana Kona Pop + Blueberry Bliss? Worth a shot next time!

Flavors: Berry, Pineapple
