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.

I keep opening and closing the tin because I don’t know how to describe the dry tea smell. It’s… odd. I have no idea. Once steeped it is quite sweet. I was quite surprised when I first tasted it because it was not at all what I thought it was going to taste like. It’s okay for the most part. I can taste the subtle hints of different flavors but there’s just something I can’t quite put my finger on that makes it not very appealing. I think perhaps it is the ginger that gives it the off flavor. I love ginger but for some reason it just doesn’t mix well in this tea.

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.

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)
