I didn’t really care for this. It was pleasantly citrusy, but I didn’t like the way it blended with the green tea, and I really disliked the licorice root.

Does this have an artificial sweetener? I did add some sweetener, but it shouldn’t taste so cloyingly sweet. I don’t taste the rose at all either, which is unfortunate. I’ve been looking for a good Hibiscus-Rose tea, but this is not it.

I really liked this one! Chamomile is the primary flavor, and the lemony-herbal flavor is a lighter addition that mixes really well. I’m surprised this has so many negative reviews. To each their own, I guess.

I really, really dislike presweetened teas. Not only are they usually sweeter than I like, they also often use sweeteners that don’t taste good to me. I think I would like this if it wasn’t sweetened with stevia. The stevia just ruins this for me.

I’m not sure what it was, but I really disliked this one. It reminds me of Stash’s Hibiscus teas, which I also really dislike. I wonder if it has licorice root in it.

I liked this one, but it tasted more like Hibiscus-apple than Strawberry Vanilla.

I liked this. This is the sencond gingery rooibos chai I’ve had lately, and I’ve liked both of them, so I will keep that in mind for he future.

I had this with some milk and a pinch of sweetener, but it seemed a bit too sweet for me. I seem to be very picky about my pumpkin teas.

This is quite good. It’s definitely on the sweeter end, and just a touch artificial, but not unpleasantly so. It’s mostly a pleasantly creamy chocolate-coconut flavor. It’s not a super strong flavor, but I think it would be too sweet if I used two teabags, like I have for other RoT teas. I’ll bet this would be good with milk.

Sample from Nichole. Thank you!

I’ve been curious about this for a while. I always like trying new herbal teas and this sold out before I could put in an order. I wasn’t a fan of this though. When I first opened the package, the smell reminded me of something, but it took me a while to place it. This smells like eyeshadow. I don’t think eyeshadow smells bad, but it’s not something I’ve ever thought of tasting. This just strikes me as really odd.
