I’m not a big mint tea fan but this tea caught be off guard. It may have converted me to trying more minty teas in the future. It has a very specific flavor and it’s a tea that knows exactly what it is. Very sharp minty flavor but not too overwhelming. It was quite refreshing and I enjoyed it both hot and over ice. This company just continues to surprise me and I have yet to try a bad tea from them. Highly recommended!

I’ve tried a lot of senchas and I really enjoy the subtle green tea flavor. This one is on par with the others that I’ve tried. Nothing quite pops out to differentiate it but it is definitely a solid sencha green.

drank Peach by Teaves Tea Company
27 tasting notes

Finally got my first order of Teaves tea in the mail. I ordered this peach oolong as well as a sencha reserve and I have to say that both of them were pleasant surprises. I don’t like to try new companies often because I don’t like change, BUT I think I should change that about myself. I gave this company a try because the site looked appealing and I am interested to see what other companies have to offer. This peach oolong tea is the best one yet. Offers a great balance of fruit flavor to tea flavor ratio and I’m a sucker for oolong’s and peach so they had me from the start. Packaging is interesting and unlike any I’ve seen yet. It’s a very clean and simple look with all the necessary directions and information that should be on a package. I’m definitely checking them out again to see what else they have to offer. So far so good!

drank Tropical Green by Tea Guys
27 tasting notes

I enjoyed this tea cold over hot. It has a very tropical and clean taste that’s not too overpowering even though the aroma is very strong. It has a natural sweetness provided by the pineapples and has a nice light greenish yellow color. Adding a little bit of sugar did the trick for me but it can definitely be enjoyed without any sweeteners as well. If you like green teas and amazing tropical smells and flavors, I would recommend this tea for you.

drank Strawberry Kiwi by Tea Guys
27 tasting notes

I tried this cold brewed and it turned out okay. It wasn’t too tart or too sweet but I felt maybe it was lacking in overall taste. I guess that’s what cold brewing does, but I did still enjoy it. If you enjoy a light tasting fruit tea this ones for you. If you like bold strong flavors you may not enjoy this.

drank Strawberry Sassafras by Tea Guys
27 tasting notes

I tried a sample of this as an iced tea and it was surprising. I didn’t get too much strawberry flavor but I got more of the cinnamon which gave it a root beer-like taste. In that sense I did enjoy it because I like root beer, but for those of you who don’t, you might want to stay away from this tea or drink it with an open mind. Don’t expect an overwhelming strawberry flavor.

Received a sample of this tea and decided to try it iced. First I hot brewed it, added a bit of sugar, let it cool down and let it chill over night. I was happy with the results. I was hoping for an iced coffee like flavor and it really delivered. You really all the flavors in one sip and it’s delightful. You get the nuttiness of the pistachio and a hint of honey after taste. I added a drop of milk and it felt just like having an iced coffee on a hot day. I would recommend this tea to those who have similar flavor palettes and enjoy a nutty and sweet black tea.

drank Fruity Sangria by Fusion Teas
27 tasting notes

My first impression of the aroma was that it smelled exactly like fruity pebbles cereal. This really excited me but as I took a sip the hibiscus turned out to be a little too overwhelming for me. The tartness came on a bit strong and I think I’m starting to realize that I’m not a big fan of this flavor profile. By the way, I cold brewed this so I’m not sure if that has anything affect on it. It still smells nice but I don’t think I can handle the tartness.

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

A very interesting tea to say the least. I love the sweet caramel popcorn flavor mixed with the apple and maple but I agree that the tea itself is a bit underwhelming in the flavor department. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this tea and would recommend it to any lover of movies, popcorn or both! It is at least worth a try and please don’t let the light flavor scare you away as you can just add more tea to bolster the flavor or steep a tad bit longer. This seemed to do the trick for me. Sweet and satisfying!

drank Awake by Tazo
27 tasting notes

I thought I’d give Tazo another tasting but this will probably be the last time I do so. Definitely not my cup of tea. The theme for all of their teas seems to be tartness or bitterness in this case with beautiful coloring and not much else. This morning blend has bold flavor, a bit too bold for me and the addition of milk, honey or sugar does help but I don’t want to drown out my tea flavor with such additions. I wouldn’t recommend this tea to anyone with similar taste as me. For everyone else, check more reviews and be cautious.
