The smell is a blend of sweet citrus and lightly nutty, with the combination of almonds and pistachios, and a subtle spice.

The taste mirrors the aroma exactly, giving off a delectable quality blend mixed with light white tea.

I added half a teaspoon to compliment the sweet citrus.

It is a joy to now start each day sipping on cookies.

The flavor never gets old, as I have already purchased more in case I finish the whole 2 oz. before I get to refill my container.

This is my daily tea, mainly steeped in the early or late afternoon.

The spices and citrus accents make it perfect to enjoy anytime during the afternoon and consistently explodes with every sip.

I am not quite sure about this one.

Right away, this has a very strong floral aroma mixed with chai accents, which is quite overwhelming as you are sipping it.

It is a very light flavor that starts subtly, but explodes once it passes your tongue, not too spicy with a slight nutty taste.

I can see this as a nice nooner tea, it does not overwhelm with taste, and it does taste pretty good.

This has quickly become my favorite morning tea.

Very buttery, lightly sweet, and extremely dreamy; a perfect description would be like drinking a delicious cookie.

Because of the quality of the blend, you can’t really taste the black tea over the almond flavor, which I add just under a teaspoon of rock sugar to maintain sweetness.

Mixed with assam tea, this maintains its sweet, almost buttery taste.

It is a nice light tea to start your morning mixed with a proper black tea.

drank Chocolate Chai by Sanctuary T

This is barely chocolate and/or chai, the honeybrush overpowers everything and gives this tired rooibos taste.

I am extremely disappointed with this, as I was expecting some kind of chai flavor.

Fruity and flavorful, this tea is bright, lush and juicy.

Best served iced cold and preferably mixed with fresh fruit.

This is one of the perfect summer teas to enjoy.

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana

Very fruity and very refreshing, with the spearmint; truly delicious green tea blend.

This is more fruity than green tea, with a dash of refreshing mint.

I’ve only had this hot, but I imagine this would be much better iced on a hot sunny day.

I like oolong; before really getting into chai, oolong was my tea of choice.

This tea is quite strange, as I was expecting a different kind of sweet with the typical oolong earthy undertone.

What I got was more of a green tea flowery taste, coupled with the slight sweetness of fruit and roses.

The tea is very light and bright, which would require more sweetener than usual.
