I like to think the tea plants sucked all the tasty bits out of the Indian soil and air for the benefit of my cup, resulting in a smooth taste, nice aroma and color. There’s some grape flavor in here. Lots of other rich flavors, but cannot name any of them per se; it’s nearly ‘spiced.’ Really enjoyed it steeped at five minutes versus three minutes.

Smokey! It tastes like the bottom of a campfire pit. Strangely addicting though. I hope the smoke has not introduced carcinogens into the tea. Caveat emptor!

I am philosophically a plain tea kinda guy, but I cannot deny this one’s deliciousness. I bought it as a gift for someone, but wanted to try it myself first. It’s quite fruity and aromatic. Tasted it with their German beet sugar to make it even sweeter. Ultimately, I feel like I ought to just drink juice if I want these kinds of flavors, or to just eat fruit. The same attitude goes for novelty beers with different flavors. For a more affordable version of a similar tasting tea, try the Tazo brand Passion tea.

A tasty vanilla rooibos with masala. Its flavor is reminiscent of apple cider: sweet and fruity. In particular, I could taste the cloves. The dry leaves are like a potpourri. Nice!
