An interesting rooibos. Needs to be steeped for quite awhile; otherwise it ends up kinda bland. Honey gives it an odd flavor. The pre-steeped smell reminds me of fresh hay. Not one of my favorite but soothes a sore throat.

A very good Earl Grey. A unique Bergamot smell fills your nostrils as soon as you open the bag. It tastes just like an Earl Grey with a touch of green tea added.

Everything about this tea is lovely. The smell before and after it’s brewed, the taste, and even the color of the brewed tea. The flavor is a perfect blend of almond and other flavors to give it the cake flavor. It’s nice to have a tea that tastes like the name describes it.

This is one of my favorite teas. The best part is the after taste. I love how the ginseng lingers on your taste buds. It’s such a smooth tea it’s easy to drink at any time. The pre-brewed smell is a little funky.
The version I have is not Joy’s tea brand but I am not sure of who made it cause I can’t find it in their online store (Cooks of Crocus Hill – Goods and Goodies)

Jasmine was my starter tea. It’s easy to drink with honey or without. It also blends well with other teas. This Jasmine tea is mellow and full of Jasmine flavor. I still prefer this one with honey then without though. It’s also good cold. In order to fully appreciate the Jasmine flower flavor I had to let the tea cool down.

A very unique tea. It was the Sarsaparilla that made me curious to try it out and its what makes this tea what it is. The after tastes is also quite interesting. If your looking for a root beer tea this is close to it.

This tea tastes like dill. The ingredients make it sound quite interesting but it’s not quite what the name says it is. I’ve tried it a couple different times to see if it was the cup or the water but each time has been just as bad as before.

Each Genmaicha is different. Every cup has most of the same notes but also has it’s own uniqueness. I’ve tried three different Genmaicha bags and all were a bit different. So far my favorite has been Indigo’s Organic Genmaicha but this one is also quite good. Like all green teas you have to make sure you do not over steep the tea or it will become too bitter.

Tea. Like coffee and many other things, is basically just flavored water. But don’t you tell any tea or coffee drinkers that.

I’m willing to try out any type of tea, except of course the ones they suggest nursing mothers to not drink. (Like ginseng tea… and I love ginseng sadface)
