My first tea with yuzu in it! And forgive me if I’m describing it funny, I have no clue what it’s supposed to taste like.

The bag smells like real honey, but also something very sour and sort of fruity. It’s a confusing scent. Part of me wants to taste it, and the other part of me wants to wash my hair with it. As it steeps, the water changes to a sunny yellowish tan and smells more like toasted fruit, maybe lemon. Really trusting you here, Tea Forte!

The flavor is surprisingly pleasant after a little sweetener. Sure, it’s a little strange, but it’s basically like a lemon and honey green tea. Only the lemon is yuzu, maybe yuzu peel. I believe the bee pollen is what’s making the honey aspect seem toasty. As usual with Tea Forte’s flavored greens, the actual tea aspect is buried and hard to detect. All that’s there is a bit of bitterness in the finish. But this isn’t as terrible to me as it seems to have been for other Steepsterites. I wouldn’t buy it again, since it’s not really my thing, but it’s not awful.

I thought this was strange too.


I love Yuzu!!! Though it is hard to handle. Your description seems about right. Its a small but strong, citric and bitter fruit. Used the right way can taste amazing. A bit more than needed and its to the trash can. Sorbet with Yuzu is great.


It’s this particular teabag that I thought was weak but who knows how long it had been sitting on the store shelve.


Yuzu is mostly aromatic like most citric fruits, so if it was in the store for a long time I can see how that affected the taste. That’s what I ‘hate’ about some citrus teas, you can have an amazing time or the worse ever. To me there are very few things than the taste of faded citrus, to me it taste like the rind instead of the ‘peel’.

Dry – this smells like just-out-of-the-hive HONEY and hairspray.

while brewing it smells like green tea and a bit of honey and herbs.

This is rather strange…it seems I am drinking something comparable to pepper water and not a good kind of pepper. As it cools the pepper flavors change to a stale-type-honey.


Sorry…can’t do it.


I was assuming this would taste more like MEAD…but…it was VERY far off!!!


I know, a really sad sucky tea bag!


hmm hairspray honey does not sounds appealing at all.


Hairspray is equivalent to perfume for me… not an aroma I want in something I’m going to be eating!

Hmmm, not bad, but not memorable, either. Smells like honey! Nice. A little fruity – I am not familiar with yuzu so I am assuming this is it.

The tea in the cup is cloudy – I think from the honey or bee pollen? – and golden. The flavor is not bad, not stellar. I would not buy this, but if someone offered me a cup on a cold day or when I had a sore throat, I would take it. It probably tastes best to thse who add honey or sugar to their tea. Fn to try, though, and I think this is only my second ever Tea Forte tea!

I thought this would be one of my favorites. Not so much. :( I’m not sure what it is I’m tasting, but is certainly isn’t anything close to honey (it smells like honey at least). I had hoped it would be sweet but instead it is turning out pretty bitter. Oh well – sip and learn.


I am sorry to hear you did not find it sweetly honey. You must be use to taking more sugar or sweet in your tea. Although, I seem to remember reading you like your green teas with nothing in it. I thought it sweet for my palette and the glow at the cup’s bottom is quite nice.

I must admit to seeing things that are not necessarily there. Good review, sorry you didn’t like it.


I don’t take anything in my teas usually. Sometimes I add agave, but I figured this one would be sweet enough without any additives. Guess not. Oh well.


I haven’t used sweeteners in my tea for such a long time! This tea is one of 2 that I have left as samples from this offer and I have to admit that the smell is freaking me out a bit. I think that I might have to add honey or something because it just smells so weird to me.


It was a weird smell! I still can’t figure out what it reminds me of, but it does remind me of something! I suggest a little agave with this tea.

I have the cherry and coconut teas left and I can’t try the coconut one (allergy), but I’m going to try the cherry tea, but cherry isn’t my favorite.


I actually liked the cherry one but it wasn’t as cherry flavored as it would lead you to believe. :( that’s too bad about the coconut thing. I actually don’t own agave but I keep hearing things about it from my sister in law. I guess I just don’t use sugar/honey with about anything really. Maybe I should try it just for fun though! :p


I suggest trying it at least once! Let me know what you think!


O.O I just got my sample out so I’ll remember to brew it tomorrow and for some reason it smells, peppery? It was in a dark corner all by itself. I don’t even know if I want to understand what’s going on here.

I forgot to pack tea to drink at work this morning! Luckily I have a few bagged teas in my desk for emergencies, so it is time to try this one.

WOW, this will teach me to forget to bring tasty tea! Bleh! Super bitter, vague fakey citrus taste…count me out! The only thing pleasurable about it is the scent. Also HURRAY I can smell things again! Glad I only had the one bag of this though.

I feel really guilty. I drank this while I was sick because I thought the citrus and honey combo would be good for my throat. Well, it made me feel better, but I have no idea what this tea tasted like. Now I really wish I had drunken something else because I’m really curious! Too bad I only had the one bag. I’ll bet it was good!


If it made you feel better then it was worth it in my books :)

This tea is part of the skin-smart antioxidant amplifier tea that is being used as special reserve green tea with the bright exotic citron flavor of yuzu sweetened with full blossom bee pollen.

Steeping Instructions:
Bring freshly drawn, cold water to a near boil
Placed filter bag in cup
Slowly pour water over filter bag and allow steeping for 3-5 minutes.

This tea conjures wonderful aroma in the cup; the citron flavor yuzu settles or is dispensed and settled at the cup’s bottom; as if one were to take a spoon of honey and pour it into the cup.

I managed to get three steeps out of this teabag to keep consistent with original flavor: citrons with honey layering throughout. Once brewed the liquor is so enticing, warm golden color in the cup inviting one to cozy up and relax.

It is like what is stated on tea bag: Green tea for natural renewal; as this is a sampler I would need more than one tea bag to further experience this renewal.

This tea will be put on my wish list for future purchase.

One other thing to note; the teabags are like traditional tea bag with strings and leaf tag depicting the Tea Forte image. Previous samples used pyramid sachets which I did not like.

I agree with those that compared this to the old remedy of hot tea with lemon and honey. It is incredibly soothing. Not my favorite from Tea Forté, but it is tasty enough that I’m able to enjoy and finish the cup. The honey tones are delicate, as is the flavor of the green tea. The citrus flavor, on the other hand is well-pronounced. It tastes like a fusion of many citrus fruits rather than a focus on just one.

What an interesting flavor. It tastes a bit like the blond colored jujube candies…ya know…the ones that stick to your teeth and almost pull them out. A one-of-a-kind memory. Even the color is right. Smells just a tad soapy like shampoo but not enough to put you off so you gag. I went further on the steeping and sweetening and it was better for me. This may be a “healthy tea drink” but sweethearts, it needs more HONEY to put it where it needs to be. Rework it please Tea Forte! Could be so much better. Flavor is weak.


I remember this one having odd flavors in it, too.

I really like your bio. You tell me a lot about yourself. When I was traveling more often I had a couple of opportunities stay in that area (Broomfield) and I really liked it.


Thank you! I love life and participate fully in every way I can!

This was a free sample from teaforte thank you so much. This is a pretty good tea the yuzu is there and abit tart with a nice bit of honey and the pleasant green tea. I thought this was pretty good I added sugar but wished the tea had abit more honey taste then the yuzu because the fruit is just not one of my favorites. Overall though still a good tea.
