I adore lavender, so it was only natural that I try drinking it by itself one day. Unbrewed, the familiar lovely scent is fairly strong, so I was surprised that the resulting tea didn’t have a very distinctive scent (or color — I was hoping for purple!). When it first touched my tongue, I was very disappointed by the mild flavor, but I soon found that the true treasure of this as a tea is in the aftertaste. If you could drink an afternoon of rolling around in a sunny field sniffing flowers, this is how it would taste: light, floral, and soothing. Lovely.

And of course, this is also perfect to have around for livening up other tea!

drank Organic Green Tea by Bigelow

This has a stronger smell and taste than I’ve come to expect from Bigelow’s bagged teas, a pleasant surprise! (Of course, I tend to dislike Bigelow.) It reminds me a bit of nuts or rice, and perhaps because of that drinking it feels very filling.

drank White Pear by Revolution Tea

I don’t think any pears or evern pear-like substances were involved in the making of this tea. The dry leaf doesn’t smell like pears, the tea doesn’t smell like pears, and there’s certainly no taste of pears.

The scent of this one is promising: distinctly rose, without being overwhelmingly perfumy. It’s one of those teas where if you could drink the smell, it would be perfect. The true taste, however, is a disappointment: the black base is weak and unremarkable, and the rose flavoring is hard to detect. It’s simply not very interesting. The label suggests sweetening it, and I quite agree that it’s an improvement that brings out the rose taste… though I wish I could enjoy it just as much without sweetener.

That said, I’m a huge fan of the scent and taste of roses, so I can’t hate this too much. My mission when I picked it up was to make sure that I had at least one rose tea around, and in that sense it succeeded. It’s very much drinkable and I’m sure other fans of rose tea will find it satisfactory, but there are certainly better options on the market.

drank Rooibos by Numi Organic Tea

This one was available at work for some reason, so I gave it a try. It’s not as flavorful as the other rooibos I’ve had, and therefore not as interesting… I might recommend it to new drinkers, but nobody else.

60s: All right, I’m glad I got to give this a try but when it’s gone it’s gone.
50s: Not so great, I can drink this when I just really want tea.
40s and below: Various levels of dislike to hate. It just depends on how gross I think it is.
