This isn’t bad, but it’s not really what I’m looking for from a chocolate tea. It tastes pretty much like a liquid tootsie roll. There’s a little bit of earthy woodiness from the Puerh, but it’s not real strong. I can see how some people might really enjoy this, but it’s not for me.
Old sample from Tea Sipper. Thank You!
It is very rare that I actually like a peach flavored tea. I love peaches and peach schnapps, but I tend to think peach teas just don’t do the flavor justice. Many of them are way too sweet, I tend not to like how the flavor combines with black or green tea, many of the herbal varieties are too sweet or have a strange aftertaste, or both. But I really like this. The peach flavor is light, but definitely present and the oolong is less prominent, but really rounds out the peach flavor well and adds a bit of a floral note. This is a keeper!

This was a surprise favorite for me. I don’t usually care for lemongrass, I don’t often like mint in blends, and I’m picky about rose hips. But this is actually really good! It’s bright, fruity, and pleasantly tart, with an aftertaste of herbs and mint. I think I like it in part because the main flavor and the aftertaste are so distinct -you taste the fruit first and as that flavor is fading, then you get the mint.

Old sample from tea sipper. This is really nothing special. The hibiscus definitely dominates. I wish it had a stronger citrus flavor. I also wish they had skipped the rooibos and lemongrass because they give this a slightly odd aftertaste that tastes almost minty.
Flavors: Citrus, Hibiscus, Mint
This is pretty good, but could be better. This is rather lightly flavored, and the orange seems to dominate, with a hint of apple and spice. I don’t taste the cranberry at all. I would recommend less red rooibos, and more fruit and spices. I wouldn’t object to a touch of hibiscus if it helped bring out the cranberry-apple flavors a bit more. Maybe there’s more fruit in the bottom of the pouch, but it doesn’t quite live up to the name as it is.

I’ve had trouble finding a peach tea I like. This isn’t it, but it’s closer than some but overall not something I enjoyed. The peach flavor is artificial, but not overwhelming, and I like how it combines with the ginger. I don’t like the rooibos they use for a base, however. It’s strong and unpleasantly smokey. I don’t like it in combination with the peach either. Not my cup of tea.
