Hibiscus is the first ingredient and thus it is very strong. There is a slight taste of strawberry/creme but not enough to give it it’s name. Hibiscus snow creme would be a more accurate title. The dry smell is good but nothing to swoon over.

Delicious! My husbands favorite tea. He loved the dry smell so he had to try it out and now it’s his favorite. Can be steeped for a long time without getting bitter seems to get sweeter.

One of my favorite teas. I tried this one out on a whim cause I love strawberries and Pu-Erh is good for you. Glad I did because it’s now on the top of my list. It’s very smooth and the strawberry flavor is wonderful! It also has a good pre-steeped smell. I always add a bit of honey to mine because I feel it boosts the pu-erh and mellows the strawberry.

Sometimes you find a tea that smells so good that you just have to buy it and try it. It has some ‘unique’ ingredients so the taste isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be. I think it comes from the cornflower but I can’t be for certain. It tastes better with a bit honey. If they added just a bit more blueberry flavor I think it would be better.

The lavender and coconut blend very nicely with the Rooibos to create a calming blend. (To me Rooibos almost has a vanilla-like flavor and both lavender and coconut blend very well with vanilla). Good for anytime during the day. Also good hot or cold. No sweetener needed. In fact, I encourage you not to even if you usually do. The pre-steeped smell doesn’t do the tea much justice but then the steeped smell doesn’t help much either. Regardless, don’t let the smell lead you astray. If you like Rooibos you have to give this one a try.

A sweet and light herbal tea. Love the steeped color. The Pre-steeped and after steeped smell is so lovely. Doesn’t require any added sweetener, however, I did like it with a bit of honey. Good hot or cold.

For a tea that tastes so good it sure has a funky pre-steeped smell. I felt that 2 mins of steeping is the right amount to get a good flavor without making it bitter. Its good with some honey too.

Every time I smell this tea I feel like my sinuses have been cleared. In a good way. It wakes you up and relaxes you at the same time. The taste is quite good as well. I’ve added honey to mine and it’s okay but I think it is much better without any sweetener.

Go look up Lapacho. I’ve never heard of a tea with this ingredient but it tastes pretty good and it’s good at soothing a sore throat. All of the flavors blend together very well but I think it is better with just a bit of honey.

This is a good but fickle tea. If you don’t steep it long enough you don’t get enough of the many great flavors but if you steep it too long the blood orange rinds will make it bitter. The smell and the taste make you feel relaxed. Doesn’t need sweetener.

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)
