I really like the flavor of this tea. It’s a good mood lifter for this ever cloudy weather. The dry smell is very light. But it has a good scent. The ingredients are a very interesting mix of fruits, flowers and grenadine. Yea, I had to point that out because I am pretty sure I have never seen any tea use this as an ingredient. Then again Teavana does like to use unusual ingredients. The tea is good hot and cold but this one I actually prefer on the warmer side.

It’s very mellow for a chai. The chai spices don’t hit you until you reach the aftertaste. Even so I like this one. It’s smooth and I love that the vanila flavor isn’t too overpowering. I’m eating it with chocolate macadamia pancakes and they complement each other very well. It’s more of a soothing chai, like it it says on the “box” then it is a real chai.

drank Cheery Cherry by Teavana

What a delightful tea! Even people who aren’t a true cherry fan will enjoy this tea. It’s sweet cherry notes carry you off to a sunny country hill. At least that’s what I imagine each time I sip some. I also love the dry smell. I’ve been steeping this pot for at least 10 minutes now and I think the flavor just keeps getting more intense. Which is better in this case.

drank Sweet Cinnamon Spice by Tazo

I’m leaving my rating marker in the middle. I like it because they mixed the spices together nicely so that not one is too overpowering. Anyone who has a thing for sarsparilla will enjoy this. I’ve tried a couple tea’s with sarsaparilla and they were undrinkable. Despite all that I’m just not a terribly big fan of it. I will drink it till it’s gone because cinnamon is good for you and it’s gross outside right now but I won’t buy this for myself. Mom you can keep the rest. Sorry.

It doesn’t have to be winter to enjoy this tea. I was quite impressed with the blend of flavors and how smooth it is. The cinnamon gives it a little bit of a kick. I started to drink it hot but had to wait till it cooled down cause one of my lymph nodes is swollen and hot stuff hurts. It’s good hot and cold.

Second try: Still good but I’m bringing down my rating a little bit. I think I may have rated it a bit too high my first time. There’s something about it that just doesn’t quite sit nicely on the palette. Maybe it’s just the spiciness of the cinnamon.

My husband and I love this tea. It’s so smooth and the somewhat root beer/sarsaparilla hints are so lovely. It’s also good cold.

drank Earl Grey by Stash Tea Company

Somewhat bland. But that is probably my fault. Either that or the hotel had it for awhile. I will have to come back and update this when I have a newer tea bag of this tea type.

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.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it with something added. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
