I’m not generally a fan of green tea, and while I didn’t love this one, it also was better than many of the other green teas I’ve had in the past: nice light fruity, lemony aroma, and the lemon and strawberry negated whatever bitterness or grassy notes that can be prevalent. I added a teaspoon of honey which muted the lemon and strawberry flavors.

One of the teas I sometimes want, it’s got a nice creamy strawberry aroma, and a nice strawberry flavor, although it’s a bit of a heavy flavor. Holds up very well with cream and sugar.

This is one of my absolutely favorite teas: It’s got a gorgeous aroma, both before and after brewing, and does smell like carrot cake. I love this especially with a vanilla or sweet cream creamer (makes it creamier).

An all right tea; I brewed mine much longer than the recommended two minutes (I think more like 6 minutes), because I prefer a stronger tea. It was a lightly flavored and lightly scented tea, not bitter even despite the apparent oversteeping, and it was okay with milk, but doesn’t seem to be “made” to have milk and sugar added. The tasting notes (caramel and sour cherry) were very light, and I barely tasted them.

VERY nice hearty cup of tea, pleasant finish, no bitter aftertaste, very good with milk / creamer / sugar. Well-rounded Assam, smooth tones.

A tea with an absolutely gorgeous aroma, it’s a bit on the sweet side. I would add cream (or unsweetened non-dairy creamer, which I had initially added, but which made it much too sweet) but would not add sugar. Layers of different flavors – just lovely!
