This is not an especially flavorful tea. The raspberry flavor is good, but there’s minimal tea flavor. Kind of bland, but drinkable when a cup of tea is necessary.

This tea smells absolutely delicious and fruity. It’s full of dried fruits and petals. I was excited to taste, and was expecting it to be delicious. While I did really like the mix of fruit flavors, this tea tastes like it has a sweetener added. I don’t like sweeteners in my tea AT ALL. The sweet ruined the experience, and I have no idea where it comes from. I don’t think that the fruits on their own could produce what tastes like pure sugar, and I drink loads of other teas with fruit pieces. I wish I could give this a higher score for smell and prettiness, but when I look at the faces on the rating scale, the one with its tongue stuck out is how I feel about the taste. No sweeteners in my tea!!!!

This company used to have an Etsy shop but they seem to have disappeared. This is a very pleasant fruit-flavored black tea. The pomegranate and lemon offer a nice balance to one another, and the tea is not overly tart. It’s a good, refreshing morning tea.

drank Green by Higgins & Burke

It’s very hard to do green tea in a bag. Green tea is so much less forgiving than black tea, breaking it up and putting it in a bag makes it so much harder to brew a good cup that isn’t bitter. On that note, I must give this product credit. This tea brewed with no hint of bitterness (using a cooler temperature, as one would do for other green teas). That said, this tea does have quite a strong lemongrass-lemon flavor, and that gives these tea bags some latitude. I tasted much more citrus than I did green tea. That’s not necessarily bad, if that’s what one wants. The main issue I see is that this tea is marketed as straight green tea, when it’s really a flavored product, first and foremost. As flavored green tea in a teabag goes, this is okay, but it’s not the best I’ve had.

These tea bags produce quite a good cup of tea. I generally go for loose leaf tea, but there are times when a bag is simply more convenient. This Earl Grey has a strong bergamot scent. The bergamot flavor is strong once brewed, but not overwhelming. It was easy to brew a cup that was smooth and not too bitter. I brewed for approximately two minutes, which is my usual for bagged black tea. The tea was fresh and flavorful. This is definitely a good choice for those in search of a bagged earl grey.

This is not a terrible cup of tea, but each bag is not nearly strong enough on its own to make a full cup. There needs to be more tea in the bag (and the bag needs to be bigger to give the larger amount of tea space to expand). In sum, a weak black tea. You’ll taste more spice than tea. Much better if brewed two bags at a time.

A very drinkable chai, with a nice amount of spice. This is wonderful for warming in the winter. There’s no particular spice note that’s predominate in this blend, just a good mix. Delightful with a splash of milk.

drank Banana by Adagio Teas

I’ve found this to be a very agreeable morning tea. The flavoring is not very strong (I’d actually prefer a bit more banana flavor), so one gets a good dose of black tea. It’s not at all a sweet blend, just a bit of banana.

This is a very serviceable flavored black tea in a bag. This has become my go-to bag when I need a quick cup of tea. The scent of this tea is utterly amazing- strong cinnamon, but not overwhelming. I could sniff the packet all day. Flavor is good for a bag. Most important to me is that the cinnamon flavor is present, but not so overwhelming that it is too sweet. All in all, a quality tea, great for when you need a bag.

Slurp. I’m not a tisane drinker by any means. I’m no great fan of rooibos. I like my real tea. Thus, I’d never tried honeybush, and I was pretty sure I never wanted to. Then I read all the great reviews about this, so I decided to give it a try. I’d like to have a caffeine-free option available. So, I brewed it up, and wow! It really does smell like a pina colada. It tastes like one too. I can’t really figure out what the base honeybush flavor is, but whatever it is, it was overshadowed by the pina colada-iness, which is just fine by me. Now, if this flavor could be added to a black tea, I’d be in total tea heaven.
