This is lovely, sweet, and fruity. The strawberry is nice and natural – not artificial at all – and the brittle adds a nice subtle nutty flavour.

A nice, delicate tea, but there’s not as much peach flavour as I had hoped for.

Add milk and sugar, and it tastes like hugs. This is the most comforting tea in my cupboard, and the one I usually reach for most.

Lol. You said it tasted like hugs! That’s so cute :)

I think I need to try this stronger. I steeped it as I do all my black teas, and added milk and sugar. Unfortunately, it’s kind of weak and while it has the potential to be a lovely spicy tea with some vanilla, it falls flat.

I tried this iced, and sweetened with agave syrup. It’s nice. Next I may try it with regular sugar.

I’m glad the hibiscus isn’t stupid overpowering, but I’m wanting a bit more fruity flavour to it.

This is really, really good. The pear makes it fruity, the cranberry keeps it from being too sweet. It’s lovely and autumnal and satisfying.

Nice, light, and fruity. There’s a strange artificial aftertaste, though.

When I first had this tea, I think I steeped it too long and got too much carob in the scoop, because it was SUPER strong and slightly bitter. The second time around I steeped it for less time and added half a scoop of orange pekoe to even out the carob-ness.

Much better. :)

Not bad, considering I don’t like ginger all that much. However, something falls flat. Also, STOP PUTTING HIBISCUS IN TEA. Augh it’s gross.

Excellent! One of the best teas I’ve ever had. Clearly, it was delivered to us by the hands of the gods themselves. Would stockpile, order online, or kill to get more.

60-80
Good, and will keep stocked in my shelf if convenient.

40-60
Okay, nothing special.

20-40
Not very good. Would accept out of politeness, and then add too much sugar to mask the taste.

0-20
Bleh. I would rather drink mud.
