As far as mint teas go: meh. Did have some peppermint aroma and taste that tempered by spearmint, but I couldn’t taste much of the spearmint.

Love this tea! Sweet, strawberry (and slightly chocolate) aroma; excellent bright yet slightly sweet strawberry flavor very well enhanced with milk or half-and-half, and sugar. One of my very favorites.

One of my favorite teas: Really good light strawberry aroma, good strawberry flavor that’s enhanced by the addition of milk (half-and-half even better) and a small bit of sugar (the tea is naturally a bit sweet; too much sugar and the tea will become cloying). Love it!

Pretty good darjeeling (not a type of tea I generally go for); preferred to steep mine a bit longer than the recommended 3-minute brew, but good flavor, holds up well with milk and sugar, no bitter aftertaste.

This has definitely become one of my favorite teas, one that I’ll be ordering again. Beautifully strong, holds up excellently with milk and sugar, doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste that so many black teas have if you don’t add the milk and sugar – just the way I love my tea! Fantastic hearty taste.

A really lovely light, orange-scented rooibos; tasted lightly of oranges, with sweet citrus undertones. Really enjoyable!

Had an okay citrusy, orangey, vanilla aroma, but not much of an orange/vanilla taste. The vanilla was very subtle and made the tea sweet (in that there was no bitter aftertaste), but I couldn’t muster much enthusiasm. Might be okay with milk and sugar, but didn’t try it with these additions.

Another rather mediocre English Breakfast tea; no real depth to the flavor. Adding milk and sugar made it even blander. (And what was with the recommended there-minute steep time?) Perhaps if it had been steeped longer, it would have had more flavor.

Rather mediocre tea; no strong flavor; tasted a bit dusty. Okay orange aroma, but no real depth to the taste. Slightly unpleasantly bitter without milk and sugar.

I liked the taste of this one very marginally more than the Cooling Mint Tulsi; there were complexities there I couldn’t identify, but as with the Cooling Mint Tulsi, it was an interesting blend that I’d never had the likes of before. Herbal, in an herb garden-type of way.
