The green tea base tastes of grass and hay. The additives are listed as natural pomegranate flavoring and raspberries. There are very few little red fruit pods in the tea so there is not a lot of fruit flavor in the tea. There also isn’t much of an aftertaste. It isn’t at all what I expected because the flavor is so mild but I like it.

Earthy with a touch of sweetness. It’s a little astringent. Very woody. It’s really kind of one note. The aroma is slightly floral and might be nice to combine with other teas. I don’t hate it but I don’t really like it either. It is somewhat improved when iced.

I must be odd because I don’t like the way this tea smells in the bag but it smells alright once it’s steeped. But my goodness, the taste. It is all caramel. The black tea makes a nice base but it kind of gets lost in the yummy-ness of the caramel flavor. It begs for a bit of sweetness and is greatly enhanced by it. Dairy makes it taste like a caramel candy but it muddies the tea for me. A bit of sugar makes this tea addicting. I want to try it iced now!

It smells great in the bag and in the cup. Almost flavorless on its own and is still pretty bland with dairy and sweetener. It does leave a nice spicy aftertaste though.

It actually seems a little like juice due to the fruity sweetness. It’s a nice, basic cherry flavor so it does the trick.

I love that the only ingredient in this is peppermint! The aroma peps you up, no caffeine needed. Only fresh peppermint leaves would be better.

This tea smells great. That’s pretty much the only nice thing I can say about it. I’ve tried it with cream and sugar, I’ve tried it with just cream, with just sugar, and just plain. No matter what I add or how long I steep it, it comes out bland. Anyone want the rest of my box?

This is more like a great raspberry drink. The raspberry smacks you right in the face. I like it a lot.

This leaves me with the same feelings as the caffeinated version so I’ll post the same review:
Unsteeped, this tea smells a little off. Bergamot is there of course but it smells of chemicals somehow. Once steeped, the smell improves but the flavor is just average. It’s smooth in the mouth. I like it with a teaspoon of sugar.
