Hmm wow, this tea is certainly growing on me. After some experimenting, I could steep it to my liking and I’ve come to appreciate its taste a bit more. The cinnamon is quite present and might even be a little too much, but it’s still a good tea.

OK this time I didn’t add any milk like the first time, but added a few tsps of sugar. Steeped it for a bit longer than usual and it turns out that this tea isn’t that bad afterall.

Second try. I’ve used 2 tsps to bring out the flavor a bit more. I still don’t like the bubblegum smell, but this time I could actually taste the green tea which is much better than last time when it felt like drinking colored hot water.

Nice review I really want to try this if you have any left?

I think I only took out 5 tsps or so from the 3.5oz tin. Would you be willing to swap it for something you don’t want?

what temperature are you using? perhaps tone down the heat and brew a bit longer?

I used water that is under boiling, tried steeping a bit longer but I just didn’t like it(especially the smell).

This tea is not so good.
The tea leaves in the tin smelt very strong, but it wasn’t a pleasant one as it reminded me of cough syrup or some kind of medicine. When I steeped it, the scent remained the same but turned out a bit weaker, now reminding me of bubble gum. Well, I thought I could get pass the weird smell and at least enjoy what’s most important, the taste. It turned out that the flavor of the tea was overall very weak and I couldn’t really taste the caramel nor the apple. I might have expected too much, but this tea just didn’t work for me.

The tea in the tin smelt pretty good, it actually did somewhat resemble a carrot cake. So far, I’ve tried this with different amounts of milk and some sugar and I’m not that impressed. I’ve used a tsp of tea for each cup, so I might have to use a little more next time because the taste was subtle and not enough for my liking.

I didn’t like this one too much when I first tasted it. After drinking more and more of this, I think I’ve adjusted to its taste, but its still far from being my favorite as it has that “ricey” taste which might even be called earthy(not sure about this).

Pretty good and refreshing. Be careful not to use boiling water, as the tea will aquire a bitter aftertaste if you do so. This tea really has a plain simple flavor that it is hard for someone to go wrong with it.

This was my introduction to tea. It was a good choice as an introductory tea because it never got bitter or anything by oversteeping it or using boiling water. I always have my green tea with honey, and this one really took the honey well.
