This is such a light and refreshing tea. I totally agree with the other reviewers that it has a bit of a hay taste. I also get a really nice sweet taste as well. This is a sample that I got with my first Mandala order recently. This is a great tea to unwind with after a long day at work.

Oh my. This is rocking my world right now. This tastes like peaches with honey drizzled on top. I’m drinking it straight up without any sugar, milk, etc. it’s perfect as is. It has a lovely sweet aroma. This is really delicious! I’m so happy I got a sample to try. I will be ordering more.

This is the first if the teas that I ordered from Della Terra on black Friday. I’ve never tried Della Terra or rooibos tea before. I’m on my second cup of this delicious tea. I’m glad the cinnamon isn’t overpowering. It’s creamy & has just the right amount of spice in it. I’m really enjoying it!

drank Almond Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

This is my very first time making matcha. I couldn’t pass up the deal Red Leaf had on Black Friday. Sure, I don’t have all the fancy tools for proper matcha. I made do with a mug, strainer & little wire whisk. It turned out excellent!

When I first opened the gold pouch a really strong smell of almond hit me. At this point I was glad I started with the basic. I was afraid this was going to be super overpowering. It wasn’t an overpowering almond taste at all. It was pretty subtle. I could really taste the vegetal notes of this, which is ok by me. I’m so glad I ordered this!

This tea is so pretty. It’s got rose petals in it. It smells divine. After smelling it in my local tea shop I knew I had to purchase it. It’s both sweet and tart. I’m really into this.

This is really super tasty tea. It’s got bits of popcorn in it. I’m pretty new to this type of tea. I guess I wasn’t expecting popcorn being an ingredient. I’m really enjoying this. It’s got a real toasty/roasty quality to it. Really enjoying this!

I got this as a sample from David’s Tea. This probably sounds bad, but this tastes like cooked cabbage to me. I really love this. I’m fond if vegetal like teas and this is no exception. I will certainly be ordering this!

Cantaloupe is my favorite fruit. So I had huge expectations for this tea. Let me just say, it did nit disappoint. The dry tea smelled exactly like cantaloupe. I was hoping this would taste strongly if melon & not just a hint of it. This is delicious. It’s got a terrific flavor. The creaminess is amazing. This will be forever in my permanent stash. Stacy, this is perfection!

I took a gamble when I ordered this tea. I like maple syrup. I despise maple flavored cookies, candy, ice cream, etc. I was surprised how much I liked this. It actually tastes like maple syrup, & not artificial at all. The thing that impressed me the most is the lingering maple flavor. Very good!

This is hands down my favorite oolong that I’ve tried from Butiki so far. My only regret is that it’s a sample. Will definitely be ordering this. I can definitely smell the orchid right away as it steeps. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this as I’m not a huge fan of floral teas. But the orchid is a lovely scent & isn’t over powering. I literally can’t stop sniffing this tea as it steeps! It’s got such a great creaminess to it. Really enjoying this one!

I am very new to tea. I’ve recently discovered loose leaf tea and am loving the quality of it compared to store bought tea. I’m looking forward to learning as much as I can from this resourceful site.

In my free time I enjoy knitting, reading, hiking, and music.
