IT REALLY DOES HAVE A LOT OF ZING it’s really powerful and bursting with tangy flavor. Sometimes I over-steep it and it gets to be TOO much for me, personally HAHA. But it’s generally pretty delicious as I do really love raspberry flavors. I bet this tea would taste great iced too.

Most definitely my favorite rooibos tea! The fruity flavor is fresh and prominent, not too overpowering or too sweet, JUST RIGHT. I love to blend it with oolong and green teas! It’s also really pretty to look at. BONUS POINTS!

Don’t really have strong feelings on this tea either way, and I’m usually not a fan of red teas to begin with. It’s a little bitter; I think the passion fruit might be a bit too overpowering, I wish there was more strawberry flavor! Sweetened up with honey or something might help it, but I haven’t touched it in a while.

Somebody mentioned this chai as being HARDCORE and I totally agree! It is super spiced, almost too much for my tongue to handle by itself. However, coupled with some honeybush vanilla and honey the tea becomes a bit more sweet; I need to try this with some milk at some point. It’s a good tea, just very strong!

This tea is stronger than the Island Mango; pretty good, generally fruity. I don’t recall truly tasting the blueberry, but it’s deliciously fragrant fo sho! So yeah a decent tea but not something to write home about.

It’s good! I taste more green than white but overall a smooth delicious tea fusion, plain and simple.

AW I am a little sad many people seem to dislike this! I actually really love this tea and have noticed it’s kinda hard to find in stores around here. It’s a very light and smooth white tea. As for taste, there’s really no discernible fruit, more so a generally berry-like flavor. It’s a simple tea that’s not overdone; perhaps the fact my first experience with it was on vacation in New Mexico added to the enjoyment as well!

WOW AND I THOUGHT THE PASSION TAZO TEA WAS STRONG. This had so much promise, as I really do love orange flavors, but WOW it was just an absolute overload of SOUR. It smells great but it’s just waaay too much assaulting flavor. I feel like there has got to be SOME use for this tea, though… perhaps it would be better cold? I don’t know, but I didn’t keep it around long enough to find out. I actually gave it all away to my friends… I wonder how much they hate me now. :’)

This was my 2nd ever loose leaf tea! Pretty tasty and WOW IT SMELLS SO FRICKIN GOOD. I haven’t had it in a while but I remember it being a lighter black tea, not too bitter, and the strawberry flavor was very sweet and prominent. Did I mention the smell was to die for.

SUPER CASUAL TEA AFICIONADO!
my tastes are not refined.

i tend to steep teas too long and give a lot of high ratings and get ridiculously excited over things; i apologize for my excessive use of caps but TEA IS EXCITING okay!

greens & oolongs are my favorite!
also like sweet black teas!
and occasional light fruity teas!

i’d love to do a tea trade with you!
