Really love the combo of rooibos and pumpkin! A great fall tea for the price.

…Not going to lie, the design of the tin is what sold me. I would love to have a pumpkin teapot!

I love TJ’s dearly, but their teas are mostly a let down. I should have known better and resisted, but the lure of a spicy tea was too much for me to pass up. I cold steeped this overnight in the fridge and woke up to a tea who’s first taste is of alkaline, which I always equate to dirt. Dirt tea, mmmmmmm! After the alkaline washes away, I am greeted by some heat and the flavor of fruit. Over all, it was a let down. I might try adding some creamer to see if that helps with the dirt, but I’m worried that it will tame down the chili which was the selling factor for me. :/

Iced

Very, very bitter, even for a black tea. Also makes me way too jittery to drink regularly, even though I can handle many other black teas.

An excellent, soothing winter time tea. It really does taste like a candy cane in tea format – very little green tea taste present, which is fine with me in this case.

I always stock up on this when the winter season rolls around at Trader Joe’s, since it’s not sold during the rest of the year. Great tea for a calm December evening or a rainy day!

You can not really taste white tea in this blend, but I love the spicy ginger. I’m not tasting pear but there is a certain sweetness which goes well in this blend because it counters the spicy flavour a bit.

This is my standby decaf black tea. i often brew a bag of this combined with a bag of something caffeinated because I like my tea fairly strong but can’t have the caffeine. It’s solid, unremarkable, great value.

I want this to taste more like Adagio’s Peppermint Stick tea they had once upon a time. But without that comparison, this stands well on its own.

A favorite. It’s seasonal, and thankfully I have a few boxes in my cupboard because I know better this year. The cinnamon could be more pronounced.

Lovely pear fragrance and subtle pear flavor but not nearly enough ginger for my liking – I love my ginger!

Flavors: Floral, Pear

I wonder what would happen if you steeped a piece of crystallized ginger with the tea?

Juts got this tea on a wimp adventure to trader joes. I fell that the pomegranate is overwhelming and its killing the softness of a white tea, but i love it. I prefer softer notes of white teas when drinking it hot. But man this make a great iced tea!

One of my favorite holiday teas! It’s a very gentle aroma on a nice black tea that is sweet enough on it’s own that it’s one of very few teas I don’t add any honey too.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla

Preparation
2 min, 30 sec

Not the best tea I’ve ever had but the peach and ginger flavour really do come through, and not overwhelmingly so. With it’s low price, it’s a good tea to add some diversity to my cupboard.

A straightforward, wonderfully drinkable black tea. Very smooth, not bitter, full-flavoured and not weak. A go-to decaf tea for me. It smells more fragrant and tea-like than my Harney & Sons Decaf Earl Grey.

drank Mango Black Tea by Trader Joe's

My husband used to come home from the grocery store with little goodies for me, bless his heart. But after I put on a few pounds from the gifts of candy bars and ice cream, I asked him to buy me tea if he wants to bring me a treat. This was the first one he brought home (he is not a tea drinker, himself). I had low expectations of it, but it’s actually good. The mango is pronounced, and the blend is bright and sweet.

Pretty good for a cheap English Breakfast tea.

We are surprised that this tea hasn’t been specifically reviewed here.
It’s part of a collection of 10 teas available at Christmas time at Trader Joe’s. This black tea is (in my opinion) the best of the 10. And surprisingly, it seems to be just as good as some of the “higher end” flavored black teas on the market.
You do need to be aware that this is a “flavored tea”, so if you have an intolerance for that kind of thing, this tea won’t change your mind.
