Mmmmmm. I always love when I realize I have more of this one on hand. It’s so much more popcorn and rice flavor than it is tea, but it’s incredibly smooth and it’s calming. The rice and popcorn flavor is rich and robust, filling your mouth it seems even more than the space the water is taking up.
110 Tasting Notes
Utterly fabulous. This one smells great the moment you open the container. Sweet and earthy and tastes good all day. I can keep pouring water into my Teava Rhapsody, looking at my lovely flower and steeping the tea four or five times in a day before need to even consider getting a new ball. Absolutely the best new addition to my work desk.
Mmmm. Delicious perfection in a cup. I’m pretty sure if you’ve seen my reviews, most mints can do no wrong in my world. This is another one that went pretty beautifully over well in my head and my mouth. It smells beautiful and tastes glorious, minty and little sharp to breathe in and then smooth to drink. I will definitely be getting more of this one.
Oh. Oh god. No. I tried. I steeped it the normal time of my blacks. It smelled like licorice and then it tasted so abrasive I gave up after my first taste. Then leaving it by me, kept forgetting to toss out and wash the cup since I was at work, I tried two or four small sips across the next few hours (because I have a container that keeps it hot for around four-five hours) but it was just as terrible each time.
This one was pretty okay, too. This one definitely mastered the tartness of a pomegranate but it was missing the sweetness of it. It’s was kind of like drinking a tart candy that had skipped the sugar stage at all. I’m a little less than generic on this one, but it’d probably have been improved by a dollop of honey to even out the flavor. I could definitely drink more of this one.
I’m a pretty okay fan of this one. I love most chai’s and even though I had to drink this one without my normal milk in it, since it was in my bag of bagged teas at work, I didn’t mind it so much the way it was just in water. It was middle of the road in water, spicy and filling, so I’m pretty sure it would end up pretty amazing the other way.
A lot of spice, nutmeg and sharpness like cloves in the smell, and then, like most of the flavored blacks I’ve tried, there’s a wash of black and it’s even sided by the spice flavor — but no pumpkin flavor at all for me? Guess I’ll have to keep looking for autumny teas.
I was hoping for more peach flavor after all the raving about this flavor in the tasting notes on steepster and in other places. But once again this one hit me as strongly smelling of peach, tasting of a good black and then a really thin peach additive in it. Worth the one morning sample, but I definitely wasn’t in love.

This was an okay Earl Grey, but I didn’t find it anything special. As a sample it worked out well for the morning/afternoon I was drinking it at work, but I don’t think I’d go out of my way to have it on hand in my house.
Mmmm. I love mint teas. This one was fabulously minty both to the smell and the taste. I sat around drinking things one through work one morning and nothing could distract me from the cool and calm it ispired into me.
I was hit or miss on this one. I could taste the blend of the white and green together but I didn’t feel very moved by it. I guess I was hoping for more of the soft, buttery white tea to show through the green.
This one was a smooth and soothing lovely gem. A pretty generically normal peppermint, it was cool and sweet. I could probably interchange it with my Celestial Seasonings one, labor honey into it and enjoy this during anytime of day or night.
This one is having a problem I’ve been having with my bags far too open. I open it and it smells deliciously like it’s supposed to — all sinfully sweet and beautiful caramel — and then once it’s been steeped it doesn’t taste like much at all. A black with some muddling by something else undefinable. I was disappointed at this one.
I found this one quite generic. It smelled very citrus-y orange, and then it just tasted like black tea for me. Not a bad black tea, either, just pretty middle of the road all together. Guess I’m glad I only had one of these to try.
I found this delightful. It was warm and bright. A beautiful new twist on one of my favorite types of teas. I could definitely keep this on hand for rainy mornings and early spring when the thaw is just starting.
While this smells exquisitely like raspberry, I felt like it was lacking in tasting like raspberry. It was a pretty nice, soothing, but generically normal white tea. It would be fine to me by on a day for just needing tea, but it’s nothing special and I wouldn’t feel the need to buy it.
You can definitely taste and smell coconut in it. There’s a soft rusticness to it. It’s a little more agressive than my normal teas but I’m definitely loving it this afternoon, while it’s powering me through a slow last hour and half of my work day.
Smooth, lovely and nice. It’s definitely good for a winter time drink. A dash of cool, mint/peppermint with the citrus. Lovely.
This one for me had a far better bouquet without a truly amazing flavor. I don’t absolutely adore it, but it’s okay for mellow afternoon green when I’m at a restaurant. In that way its much better than being brought a generic Lipton of orange-black with my lunch.

This was in a tea swap I got from my Tea Group in town, from someone who isn’t fond of fruity teas. I have to say, though, that it definitely found a a good home with me this morning during breakfast. This one was smelled lovely at the first breath in, citrus and beautiful. I love the green and citrus flavor of this, and I back up my roommates vote that this should be stocked forever in my house.
It has a delightfully cherry scent, and the flavor is very earthy. It’s not an ultimate favorite but I’d never see cause to turn down a cup of it.
This has a gorgeous smell every time you bring your nose near it. Heavenly lemongrass, and then you part your lips for a robust burst of subtle flavors. Very green, soft, and refreshing. I really like this one.
