Very bland and I tried it from thin to thick with various amounts of water (i default to 1/2 a tsp per 3 oz of water for matcha) and water temps (80C). Harneys and DoMatcha 2nd harvest are much better at this price range. Matcha also didn’t give me the matcha calm alertedness greatness feeling I tend to get from a good matcha.
103 Tasting Notes
There’s lavender in this tea! Its even in the picture! But not in the ingredients. Which I do NOT like one bit. With that said, I didn’t even tell my brother but he tasted it and immediately said “honestly. this tastes like soap” and while I enjoyed the tea I could see where he was coming from. Why is there lavender? Why? Its BERRY. So weird. steeped for 1.5 minute first infusion and 3 minutes second.
Wow. Everything about this tea is amazing. From the peachy tastes to the spicy finishes to the roasty taste yum! I want more! Unfortunately its super expensive but (to me) so worth it! Was definitely the highlight of my tea filled day. On 6th steep now and still going strong. Steeped (rinse) 30, 15, 30, 45…
I do not get teas that want to taste like coffee! This was okay but left some meh after taste. The caramel wasn’t very pronounced to me either. I am a huge fan of flavored rooibos! This one just wasn’t for me so much.
Moderately strong on the caramel, very on the light side with the salt but its there. Idk. I guess its there on the end which is where its supposed to be and I just am not caring for it. I think I’d like it more if the caramel was stronger. I was hoping for more but its just not there for me. Sample was frommmm.. i can’t remember? Someone awesome!
Slightly floraly mainly figgish tea. Uhm. I like lavender teas but the fig throws me off. Unique? But im Not a fan. Sample from kallieboo!
Received in a sample swap. Thanks! This stuff was so yum. Tastes like cookie dough without much chocolate and I didn’t miss the chocolate one bit at all. Sampled with my family with a light desert and we all loved it. Steeped for 3 minutes first steep 5 minutes first steep. The chocolate was mildly there first steep and was definitely gone second steep. We actually preferred the second steep and probably should have tried to work in third steep.
I LOVE Cinnamon teas and received this in a swap from KallieBoo. I didn’t find it nearly as overly powering Cinnamon as others – honestly I had the opposite opinion and would have preferred more cinnamon. This one was okay but certainly not something I’d order. I think I really prefer Cinnamon Rooibos. Also, lately I haven’t preferred many flavored blacks opting to keep flavored to rooibos and some white and greens.

This lightly roasted oolong is partially earthy, floral, and fruity. Is absolutely delicious. Another amazing teavivre tea. Oh, and it steeped 10 or so times.
Don’t get me wrong I like the stuff, but apparently not as much as the others. I prefer matcha warm and not as a latte so apparently I’m not the target market so much. Whisked for a minute with 68C water.
First time I had dragonwell and don’t think I’m a huge fan. I’m fine with the overly vegetal but I also had tastes of peppery meatyness and I felt like I was eating a meal more than drinking a tea. Not a fan so much but thanks for the sample Alysha
The best thing about this tea was the green rooibos. The creme brulee wasn’t there so much but it was still quite yummy. Sample from Alysha
Amazing bedtime tea. I’m quickly changing to unflavored blacks and flavored rooibos as tastes change so this is an amazing replacement for mint chocolate black tea which I love. Sample from alysha
Oh, did I mention how amazing it smells? Wow.
Thanks to Alysha for this sample. Tasted delicious and cakey. Lightly chocolatey and not so much red velvet cake like but amazing none the less.

Tea was okay but very too light for me. Those with a palette for extremely light flavors may enjoy this far more. It was decent though and I enjoyed it.
Dry it smells like blackberry but brewed was wondering ‘This is supposed to taste like blackberry?’ Honestly I tossed it.
Mmmm kiwi! Definitely chill this or cold brew as the kiwi really pops when its cold. When warm its mudled and nearly last in the strawberry which is definitely there too. Chilled is delicious.
This was supposed to be a bluberry rooibos? Sarcasm aside, you can barely taste the blueberry when hot, warm, or cold. I tried.
Perhaps I’m just becoming more a fan of green tea or maybe this tea is just amazing but I absolutely loved this tea and unfortunately I just placed a Della Terra order because I want to have this tea again and again. I know this will become my go to apple tea because while the green tea taste is definitely there the apple truly shines and lingers.
The honey didn’t really come through. Was good but was mainly cinnamon and clouded flavors that left me really wanting a cup of plain cinnamon rooibos which I keep on stock at all times.
This Tieguanyin had nothing special to it and it was frankly no better than TGYs that cost 1/2 as much. I love Verdant but this one didn’t quite hit the spot for me and rating reflects cost as compared to other comparable TGYs.
