Gorgeous smelling tea! Very fresh strawberry aroma; good, strong, fresh strawberry flavor, too, although more a medium strength tea. Wish it were a bit stronger, would hold up better with milk. (And I would need to add milk, otherwise any accidental oversteeping would cause a bit of a bitter aftertaste for this tea.)

A good Earl Grey; even though it’s a rooibos, it holds up well with milk and sugar. I let mine steep about 10-15 minutes, and it was still well-rounded. Not the strongest bergamot aroma or flavor I’ve ever come across, but quite good.

Such an amazing tea! Strong lemon aroma when I opened the pouch before brewing; brewed mine longer than the recommended eight minutes (about 15 minutes), and it was fantastic. Strong but not bitter lemon flavor, and as odd as this might sound, held up very well with milk and sugar, still being able to taste a LOT of lemon. This is really excellent.

A very light tea, both in flavor and in strength. Slight vanilla aroma, not much of a vanilla flavor. Didn’t hold up too well with milk and sugar, even when I steeped it longer than eight minutes. Not a bad tea, but a bit lighter than I tend to prefer.

Nice maple aroma; good strong tea that held up well with my milk and sugar. Subtle maple undertones, but not a strong maple flavor. A good tea.

Good strawberry flavor, slightly tart, even better with a teaspoon of honey, which brings out some of the subtleties of the strawberry. Lovely deep red color.

Great tea for any time of day; a good black tea that I let steep for about 5 minutes, and add milk and sugar to; good strong flavor.

One of the better Earl Grey teas I’ve had; I let my steep a minute or so longer than the recommended steep time (I like my Earl Grey strong). Good all around aroma and flavor; the stronger it is the better it holds up with milk and sugar (the way I prefer my black teas). Don’t notice that the decaf detracts from the flavor at all.

First thing to notice: Nice aroma, notes of pumpkin, a bit of spice, and white chocolate in equal parts; very warming.

When brewed (5 minutes, boiling water), the white chocolate chips melt and make the tea a bit murky, but the flavor isn’t as heavy and oily as I thought it might be. (The NecessiTeas’ Tuxedo Strawberry, which also has chocolate chips and chocolate flavoring, is a bit heavier and slightly oily because of the chocolate.) Still has a nice warming aftertaste, not much sharp spice as one might find with other spiced teas / chai, but a nice smooth all-around subtle pumpkin spice flavor. Must add milk (full milk or half-and-half) and a bit of sugar to round out the tea.

When I opened the container, I first noticed just how gorgeous the tea smelled and looked: It smelled strongly of chocolate covered strawberries (my favorite flavor), complete with chocolate chips and small bits of strawberries. The aroma was just amazing.

The brewed tea itself was not as good as it smelled, though. It tasted a bit heavy and slightly greasy (because of the chocolate chips melting); it also looked and tasted slightly murky (for the same reason). It did hold up very well with milk and sugar, and I would not drink this tea without adding regular milk or half-and-half (adding 2% or skim milk would not be good). I could drink this tea a cup at a time, but not several cups in a row.
