A very bright, fruity tea. No sugar needed; very fruity, an interesting (and good!) combination in which I tasted mostly apple, blueberry, and currant. I was quite pleasantly surprised, since this isn’t a tea I’d have normally tried, but a free sample sometimes leads to pleasant surprises.

What a beautiful tea, both in terms of aroma and taste. It had a wonderful strong vanilla aroma, and an equally strong vanilla taste (augmented by creamer). I let mine steep for 7+ minutes; there was no bitter aftertaste; very good round flavor. (And I was glad to have a good evening tea option – no caffeine, but I didn’t miss it with this tea.)

This tea has a FANTASTIC aroma right out of the can: very pepperminty and chocolatey. Much of that aroma disappears (or is at least muted) once brewed; once brewed, the minty and chocolatey taste is not as strong as one might thing. (I suspect I over brewed mine, which might explain this.) Good with vanilla or sweet cream creamer, good strong cup.

As much as I like the cinnamon chai from Upton Tea, this Fennel Chai is the most interesting smelling and tasting chai I think I’ve ever had. Really interesting aroma that features a deep almost earthy aroma, nice rounded flavor; I steeped mine with boiling water for five minutes and there was no bitter aftertaste. (Added vanilla creamer – delicious.)

This smelled WONDERFUL! Really rich, warm, and buttery – and rum fragrance too. Just an absolutely gorgeous aroma. Good strong tea (I add creamer to my black teas), be sure not to overstep. Good especially with vanilla or sweet cream creamers, brings out the subtleties of the brewed tea.

Flavors: Butter

I’m not sure how to describe the aroma other than very fruity and light, almost like blueberries wafting from the cup, but slightly different. With creamer the tea tasted a bit like blueberries and cream (well, huckleberries and cream). Good strong brew, despite the decaffeination (which means for those of us who are affected by caffeine have an alternative).

Flavors: Stonefruits
