This works better than it has any right to. I’m already a big fan of green tea with mint, and the use of mint flavoring instead of a mixture of mint leaves gives this a bright, clean mint flavor, grounded in the cocoa-y aftertaste.

Thin, sour and unpleasant. A lump of sugar did not improve it.

This is one of my favorites! I used to stock up every year at Barnes & Noble with my ex’s employee discount, but now that they no longer carry Republic of Tea at B&N and my ex no longer works there anyway, I haven’t tasted it in a while.

As I have often found with fruity teas, it has a less-mature, more candy-like scent when you sniff it straight from the tin. This one reminds me of a bubble gum of my childhood; I think it might be Big League Chew?

When brewed, it blossoms into a rather more complex scent that reminds me more of certain boutique colas that I have tasted, complex yet oddly familiar. The bubble gum note is definitely still present, but I definitely mean that in a good way. I like it with a little bit of sugar, because I think fruity teas always fall flat without sugar, even if it’s not a significant amount.

Mmm, peachy. A hint of peach flavor along with a dash of honey complement the pleasant oolong nicely.

A nice jasmine. Simply gorgeous leaves, both before and after brewing.
