around $8 for a little can makes this a fairly cheap matcha and the first i’ve bought in bulk. Decent, not great. Inexpensive, sure, but I only seem to enjoy it with added soymilk. Sweeten with honey or agave nectar.

One of the smoothest black teas in my cupboard. Tastes great with citrus added. I agree with others that there’s no so much of a kick, but it’s a great tea to drink while studying.

You can’t expect much from a gift shop tea, and it’s clearly not for people who are used to tea. Blended with ginger, apricot and other fruits, the aroma is spectacular but the flavor is dull and confusing. Bitter tasting for a long steep,and not a very pleasant tea in general.

drank Rooibos Berry by Adagio Teas

I don’t really get any medicinal flavor from this tea, however it is herbal so it would make sense why some say this. The berry flavor and aroma is very slight but enjoyable and the rooibos itself isn’t half bad. You really have to steep it for a while (10 mins or so) to get a real, bold flavor out of it. Aside from that, it tastes great mixing with lemonade, adding some sugar and milk or blending with black tea.

Subtle, smooth, dark, and slightly minty. Great taste of rooibos in with black tea. Great amount of caffeine, perfect for mornings.

I love Sencha tea. Bit of a grassy taste but a very enjoyable green tea.

Earthy and rustic. Gunpowder type tea that tastes much better in small infusions. Great warm or cold steeped overnight.

A surprising taste with ‘bread-ish’ overtones. Claimed to taste like popcorn, pretty accurate. Not the best tasting tea, had some strange aftertaste, but enjoyable if you’re able to enjoy more bitter-tasting teas.
