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.

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.
