I’m not a big fan of Green Teas, but this one is quite nice. It has a subtle sweetness to it and the roasted flavor also adds a bit of smokiness. I went through the sample quickly, so I’ll have to update this once I’ve ordered more =) Definitely worth a try

I think this is a good tea. I can tell it is high quality and the taste is good; however the tea is just not agreeable with me for a couple reasons.

I really want to like this tea but the flavor is “off” from what I usually drink at restaurants. Perhaps in this case, I am better off ordering from restaurants even though I am sure the leaf quality is lower ><

I also found that this blend didn’t agree with my stomach at times; nothing major, just rumbling stomach. (I tested the tea by itself and still had gurgling stomach) I might be sensitive to one of the ingredients.

In general I don’t like spicy teas but I’ve always liked Thai Iced Tea for some reason. This is an aromatic tea with a smooth vanilla taste. I’d definitely recommend it to chai tea drinkers. It goes well with organic condensed milk, half & half, and white sugar. I experimented with raw honey and brown sugar but I definitely think white sugar is best.

I want to score this higher but I have to score this purely on taste, but don’t let that dissuade you from trying this tea. I generally don’t like chai teas, plus I have a very picky palate; additionally they have a sample of this tea for only $2 =)

Overall, this is an okay herbal tea.

I generally don’t like Chai teas unless I’m making Milk tea, and I did not think this tea would taste good with Milk. This is not spicy so its okay.

I also don’t like liquorice but the blend of other herbs balances it the flavor; the ginger adds a bit of spice to offset the sweet liquorice.

For me, this will be an acquired taste but it isn’t a bad tea

Fresh Lemons!

As soon as I smelled the leaves, I was reminded of fresh cut lemons and summer lemonade. This is a nice summer tea; Natsukoi is black tea with lemons. The lemon is a bit strong, so one might feel that it is overpowering but it is a nice change to the normal everyday tea.

This is a very nice rooibos tea~

The deep-sweet mango flavor complements the rooibos well. It is a mellow fruity flavor that has more presence than the rooibos but it isn’t overpowering.

On a personal note, I like the fruitiness, but I probably wouldn’t want to drink this everyday. It would be nice to drink once in a while, as a treat or break from my other rooibos/herbal teas.

A floral black tea, with a hint of fruit~ I can barely taste the vanilla. This is a nice, relaxing tea – does not have intense flavors or smells. Overall, a good tea – but I tend to drink cups of this without remembering what it tasted like.

This is a good oolong overall.

This is smooth, not bitter – a soft oolong flavor, with a slight peach flavor.

I went through 10 teabags, this last bag was preceeded with ice cream about 1 hour before, and cake 30 minutes before so the peach isn’t really there right now, but I do remember on previous samplings that the peach flavor was a nice balance.

I tend to only drink oolong with greasy food, especially Chinese food. I also drink it if I am feeling a food coma setting in. I think this is an excellent oolong blend if you like drinking oolong by itself. I think I prefer a bit stronger, unflavored type for drinking with food though.

This is a good Earl Grey~ even if I oversteep this tea, it still tastes good – not bitter or overpowering.
