Out of the two I tried from iHeartTeas, this one is my favourite. It’s like tropical paradise in your mouth! It tastes like Paradise Island from Davids tea but with strawberry instead of Raspberry, very delish. A perfect getaway in your cup!

I was worried about the raspberry in the green tea being either too tart or taste like cough medicine used to taste like. But it’s very light, with a subtle hint of apricot as an after taste. It’s a very light green tea that is perfect hot and would likely be a very nice cool treat this summer.

I love love love this tea! It’s mellow and full of kiwi flavour all at the same time. It is one of my favourite green teas right now. It smells really strong from the tin but isn’t as strong once brewed. If you love Kiwi, you’ll love this tea:
Totally helping clear my sinuses, the more sick I am, the more I love this tea. So i’m increasing my rating.
I had such high hopes for this tea. The only tea out of the collection that was black. When I steeped it, I always add milk to the cup first and OMG it was purple. It was gross with milk, and it was nasty without. Not for me. Smelled divine before brewed and totally tart afterwards.
I was not sure what to expect from this, I’m not usually into Oolongs, and someone on here suggested I try milk oolong. It smells milky and sweet, something that I didn’t expect. Well, taste wise, it was… like butter, which I’m not sure i’m down with, but this was ONE expensive tea.
SO it smells more rich and complex than it tastes. It’s very very very light. Almost like a second steeping. I don’t love it. I don’t hate it. But I’m glad it was a sample. It gets a meh from me.
I didn’t know what to expect with this tea as I’d never tried anything like this before. It was very smooth and light. It wasn’t vegital until it cooled a bit. Must drink this one quickly before it cools. I quiet like it, about to try a second steeping.
I loved it! I steeped it a bit long the first time because i walked away from it, so it was steeped for about 6 minutes which made it too strong for me, but on the second steeping it still held a rich smooth flavour. It’s kind of like Black Dragon pearls but more rich. This is the perfect morning tea. If people like English Breakfast, they’ll likely love this! I have to add milk to it, but it’s a great new tea for me!

I have a hard time loving Oolong, but I love Kombucha so this one makes it in my good graces. This one is so totally awesome dude (psychedelic even) :) It’s lovely and tropical and I’ve had it straight and with milk, and I think i prefer it without. If you have a hard time with Oolongs, try this one. Becareful to follow brewing instructions, it can be bitter if you oversteep.
I was in the mood for some green tea love today. I’ve steeped it twice and it’s still pretty amazing. Love the grassy taste of this tea, not bitter at all.
Hummm. I had high hopes for this, I mean, I like Rooibos, I like Coconut and I’m guessing the lavender was a wild card. It wasn’t very earthy like most rooibos’ i’m used to, and it had a hint of mint, almost a cooling feeling as you drank it. It was just an odd combination. It was really coconutty, which is really fine for me, but the lavender did something odd to the end result.
This one is not for me, I didn’t realize it had cloves and cinnamon, and i could have probably dealt with the cinnamon but not the cloves. It’s got a rich chocolaty taste with a light dusting of cinnamon and cloves. It tastes better than it smells, but it’s still not for me.
This is one full tea. And surprise surprise I’m not a fan, it’s too tart, too fruity with a hint of mint as it cools. It looks like I should eat it instead of drink it. This one is up for grabs!
I’m not sure what I think of this one yet. You can definitely taste the Cacao. It’s got a smoky taste to it that i’m not sure I like. Smoky like a fire, not like a cigar. It says it’s like coffee but i’ve yet to find a tea that actually lives up to that promise. When you drink coffee you WANT coffee, not tea that tastes like cacao. *ok, end rant. I think it’s the rooibos in the tea that is making me rethink steeping time, i steeped for 4 minutes, and it is a bit too long as i’m getting a real earthy/clay taste to it. Will try again.
Yikes, some nasty reviews here! I actually quite like it. It’s light and fruity… 1.5 tsp and steeped for 2 minutes. It’s not tart and I haven’t added anything to it. As with all of teavana’s tea’s it smells amazing. It’s got a light pear taste to it but I can definitely taste the white tea behind it. White tea’s are generally very soft, and this one has more flavour than most i’ve tried. I would have this again.
Well, i’m quite surprised, I don’t hate it. It’s quite tasty, fruity and pepperminty… I think i quite like it. I would have it again. But make sure you don’t let it cool as it becomes quite tart. For those of you who know Mr. Sketch… it smells like the light blue marker…. Oh and I said “quite” quite often, buahahahaha
This is my second tasting of this, and I quite enjoy it. It’s vegetal and smooth, not bitter. I’m going to try a second steep to see how well it fares… So second steeping, not as vegetal and it’s quite sweet! So was not expecting that! Second steeping i used boiling water and steeped for 35 seconds. I’m impressed!
It is beyond freezing out today -21C or -13 F, but feels like -34 in both lol I definitely needed something warm to boot my mind out of the cold and on to a hot island and this totally did the trick. Today it’s more coconut’y’ than usual with a hint of raspberry. Delicious!
This is one of my favourite Rooibos teas. It’s minty, it’s chocolately, what is not to love?! It has a light earthy taste to it, and the longer you steep it (accidentally for me) the more clay like it tastes but it’s not overwhelming due to the mint in it. Wonderful tea to sip on when it’s freezing outside. Always warms me up!
I’m trying to stay away from black tea for a bit to regulate the ph levels in my body so it was a Rooibos day for me. This particular Rooibos is REALLY earthy and very clay like, it reminds me of play doh—not that I make a habit of eating/drinking play doh. Meh, it’s not amazing. I’ve had better.
