This tea is raised by small farmers, processed in a farmer owned factory and sold in boxes made by women in the area in western Kenya. The profits go to support education for orphaned children. This tea is a good plain strightforward black. It is quite fresh and tasty – be careful not to overbrew as it is probably fannings grade. I really liked it.

Love this hearty blend – a real get up and go tea
Amazing! I am not a Pu-erh person, as this is only my third try. I really liked this – very smooth, very pleasant, with a nice bit of orange. Earthy like the good clean dirt of a forest fllor. May be a hint of pine.
It’s ok, not worth the hype
A specially made tea for my sister-in-laws birthday. Lots of tropical fruits, a tiny hint of mint. Sweet and fruity and altogether an excellent blend, except for the hibiscus which gave the liquor an odd color.
So different from the Irish, subtler, sweeter, but excellent.
Best Irish Breakfast I’ve had. Full of fruit and no tannin. Strong, but not overwhelming.
Well, I guess I get to be the poop again. I thought this was wonderful Jasmine and the second infusion better than the first.
Now I see where the Earl goes when he’s not at home in other teas! Too Much bergamot, unable to be tamed by either milk or sugar. You need to go back to your other homes!
Sadly, i don’t know what brand this is, but I got it in Philly"s Chinatown from a merchant who was very annoyed that I asked for it. it tastes just like the stuff at my favorite Thai restaurant in Norristown, PA. Is it really tea? Who knows. Who cares. It is fun to drink but I would never put it in any serious contention for good tea. Let the good times roll!
This is bagged tea, made for the Chinese market, and hard to find, even in Asian markets. It is vastly different from either Lipton’s American or Lipton’s Indian black teas. It is much gentler and very good, especially for a bagged tea. I liked it so much I will look for it everychance I get. My tea swap pal says her family hoards it when they find it.
Oh bliss, this is such a lovely delicate tea, makes me feel quite Continental
Black teas flavored with raspberry. Too fake, too sweet, too bad from a good company
Rooibos based, supposed to taste like Orange Julius. Orange, Vanilla and a bunch of other stuff. It was ok, but I didn’t like it.
Ooh this is a good one. Mild but deep, with lilac and peach notes, but not sweet.
A very different Ceylon tea – deep dark and mysterious with hints of dark chocolate, dark molasses and a hint of floral. Milk makes it more mellow – delicious!
Surprisingly, I really liked this tea. The rhubarb saved it from being too seet and the base tea – Chinese Dragon Well is excellent.
Very good blend,floral with lemon. No one taste stands out, just all around very good taste on a a quality grren tea base
Rave reviews. I am always leery of flavored teas, but this is excellent! Great balance, no chemical off taste, even a whiff Jasmine to add to the pleasure!
Ok, I’ll be the poop here. While I like Aura Teas very much, I don’t like heavily roasted Oolongs, even if they are the famous old style. So, I didn’t like this except for the first whiffs of the brewing tea. I like the florals.
Blah, blah and yet again blah. O ye of little flavor
I think I had too small a sample for my size cup and it seemed very bland to me. It may also have been old, as it didn’t have a really fresh scent. So don’t hold that against it.
I didn’t get any rose petals in my small sample, but I do like this tea. It is both sweet and tangy, with a pronounced grapiness as it cools. Nice floral overtones. Really nice tea
Organic and they contribute to cancer research and wellness clinics from the sale of this tea. Sadly it wasn’t that great – sort of tasted like an over-roasted oolong or had some woodiness to it. MUCH improved with the addition of milk, which rounded it out and made it sweeter.
