Not a very strong tea taste, but I’m used to that with canned tea drinks. It’s pretty good for what it is. The raspberry flavor is pleasant with the honey and it doesn’t have that sour aftertaste that a lot of canned teas have (*cough*Arizona*cough*). I’d buy it again… it’s nice to have at work since a lot of gas stations carry it.

This is basically all I’ve been drinking for the past two weeks.
In fact, I’ve got a huge glass of it right here, iced with sugar. So refreshing. :)

I don’t know how I feel about this. There’s some kind of odd aftertaste that I didn’t like. I dunno, it’s not awful, but it’s not a tea I’d persue.

Just a generic chai. Not particularly high quality black tea in it. But still nicely spiced and warm-tasting. Very good with cream and sugar.

Love this tea! It has such a warm cinnamony-vanilla flavor. You can even taste a hint of rum. It’s perfect on cold nights or after dinner with cream. I’d even venture to say this would be great with vanilla ice cream.

drank Blackberry by Adagio Teas

Something very artificial and bitter about it. I think it’s the taste of the blackberry leaves themselves I’m not liking. I’m usually all about blackberry tea, but not this one.

I wasn’t expecting jasmine when I bought this. I really, really hate jasmine in my tea. So this stuff really wasn’t for me, despite the rave reviews I’d seen online.

This tea has an very convincing peach flavor. In fact, I know real peach juice is used in making it. The tea itself brews to a pale peachy color, and tastes almost like you’re drinking juice instead of tea. There is no bitterness whatsoever. I love it. It’s a shame there’s no caffeine in it, although.

This is an amazingly good tasting herbal tea. It brews up purple and tastes like fresh blueberry jelly or something similar. The only shame is that it’s decaf. I wish the grocery stores around me carried this brand.

drank Citron Green by Adagio Teas

This tea tastes just like Froot Loops to me! Especially if you steep it for 4 minutes or more. It brews up yellowy green and smells like lemons. Really refreshing. I can’t wait to try it cold. I’ll probably be ordering more. However, I think you should go with two teaspoons instead of one per cup.

Profile

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, sage, apple, coconut, raspberry, lychee, bergamot, osmanthus, cucumber, lavender, vanilla, cardamom, ginger, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use zero-calorie sweeteners and in the hot months, I drink my tea almost exclusively iced.
