This is a nice, delicate tea but can’t go all the way to the top based on it’s over-sweetness. White teas are in general a lovely and sweet tea, somehow the blending on this one made it inch towards too sweet. The vanilla taste is lost in the overall “sweet”, a shame since I love vanilla. This is very much a dessert kind of tea, although I’d have it with a more savoury dessert (a custard with balsamic vinegar, for instance) rather than with a cake.

It’s a decent mint tea, although I’m also not able to taste the tarragon. Like many other Tazo teas it’s acceptable for when you don’t have something better. I suggest adding fresh mint in the cup when making it for additional strength.

I’ll have to try it with the fresh mint next time I have some to hand. makes note

I’m going to miss this so much. It’s one of my favourites. Sweet, delicate, a dessert in a cup.

This one is more hit or miss than a lot of them. It’s good, but it’s fussy. Some days the cup is perfect, some days it just doesn’t quite live up to its smell.

A really tasty chai, the one that gave me my love of green chai. It’s a perennial favourite.

This isn’t a bad tea, but I can’t say that it’s great either. It’s a tea that doesn’t live up to it’s scent. The smell of it is warm and comforting and really entrancing, but the taste ends up a little bit musty on the tongue. By the end of the tin I’m just wanting to simmer it on the stove and use it for pot-pourri.

Until I ran into Teavana’s Almond Biscotti this was my favourite almond tea. It’s very, very good and I would still never turn it down.
