Holy Bananas! It really does taste like chocolate bananas. If you’ve ever tried a chocolate covered banana then you have to try this tea. The dry smell is unique. Chocolatey of course, but with slight fruitiness to it. It’s also dairy free, which is a big plus in this family.

This one needs more then the suggested 5 minutes of steep time. Leave it for 5 without touchin it and at 6 take a sip. i like it around 8.

Received this as a Christmas gift as part of the Bentley’s Finest Tea Green Tea Sampler Pack. I wasn’t really sure of how the tea would taste. It is light on the blueberry flavor but not so light that you can’t taste it. Slight bitterness as well even though it wasn’t steeped for long.

drank Black Currant by Harney & Sons

The sweet taste of black currants with a smooth black tea. Good cold or hot but I prefer it hot. No sweetener needed. I’ve never tried it with sweetener as I thought it would ruin the taste. I also love the dry smell as it greets me every time I open the can.

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.

drank Spiced Pear by Davidson's

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.

drank Tamaryokucha by Dobra Tea

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.

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.
