A perfectly smooth blend of the finest tasting (or as far as I can tell haha) green and black leaves mixed with the essence of Beragmot. It may not really be considered an Earl grey because it’s first ingredient is green tea but it is by far the best “earl grey” that I have tasted.

It’s a lot better then the last tea I tried by this company. The names they give the teas are so good sounding you just can’t help but want to try them. Also don’t like that they say natural flavoring instead actually saying what they put in it. Overall the flavor is okay. All I taste are the green and black tea leaves. When I tried this tea again I added a few lemon slices and I really loved the enhanced flavor.

Another favorite black tea. The heavy chai flavor is accented wonderfully with ginger and coconut. Like any black tea, if you steep it too long you won’t be able to appreciate the other flavors of the tea.

It smells wonderful and the taste is unlike most other black tea. It’s almost hard to describe. Also, it’s the first tea I’ve seen to use carob. My husband who isn’t a big tea drinker (but becoming one hehe) also loves this tea.

A delightful black tea. Only needs about 2- 3 minutes of steeping and if you go over by a few minutes it doesn’t get too bitter like other plain black teas.

I picked mine up on sale during one of Teavana’s sales however I did not see it on their website anymore.

This is the most expensive tea I’ve bought yet. However, it was well worth the price. Like many green teas it has that grassy flavor but this one is somewhat smoother. It only needs a few minutes of steep time. The second steep only needs around 30 seconds. If you like green tea you will love this one.

drank Candied Mango Chai by Teavana

The tea (without infusion) smells a little funky. But once it’s brewed it has a lovely scent. It doesn’t have much of a ‘chai’ flavor to it (you know that kinda spicy mix most have) but there is just enough there that it leaves a bit of an aftertaste. Probably one of my favorites so far of the 12 Holidays of Tea collection.

If you like almond flavored things you will like this tea. I wish it had more plum flavor as that’s what I was expecting from the name, however, I feel it is too much overpowered by the almond flavor. The dry smell is quite nice but the steeped smell reminds me of vitamins.

What a grand smell. Both the dry and wet smell are so delicious. The flavor can vary depending on how long you steep it and the amount of tea you use. I had to steep mine for longer then the recommended 2-3 minutes because I felt it didn’t have enough flavor and this is also the last of the batch. Every other cup I’ve made has been fine.

All in all good tea. It’s good with a spot of honey but it really doesn’t need it to be honest.

Agree with you about more steep time.

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.

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)

The cute little baby in the picture is my daughter, Athena. She loves to stick out her tongue.
