drank Spiced Fall Evenings by Cuppa Geek

The spices here are much too mild. The main flavor reminds me of the flavoring Adagio uses in their honeybush pumpkin chai. It’s just such a strong, fake fruity flavor that doesn’t work for me at all. I tried my final cup of this with some milk, and I feel like that helped cover up the fruity sweetness and bring out a slightly more chai-ish element. I wish I’d done that with all my cups of this!

We all balance each other out—it’s the fruity aspect of this blend I like the most :)

My sister enjoyed this one too! I love fruit teas and spiced teas, but for some reason, I often don’t love them together!

I’m enjoying this one more than I expected. I taste the lemon verbena mostly. I don’t really get turmeric. It doesn’t need sugar. It’s mostly fresh and herbal and a little savory. I wouldn’t want it all the time, but I like it. It’s a pleasant tea box find.

drank Strawberry Mint by Cuppa Geek

Hmm black tea was a weird base choice for this flavor profile. Hot, I didn’t feel like I was getting the optimal strawberry or mint flavor. Cold, I felt like the black tea didn’t taste its best. I would have preferred this with a green or herbal base because it is a flavor profile I enjoy a lot. Sadly, it didn’t work for me at all here.

drank Foxtrot by Adagio Teas

Grabbed a sachet of this from the last tea box. I like it! The flavor is mostly chamomile, but it has a pleasant something else going on. I enjoy the added complexity. Probably not special enough to order, but I definitely enjoyed it cold.

It’s good when your making custom blends for when you want to throw in that classic sleepy time tea flavor without wasting blending slots.

This one’s always consistently good.

AJRimmer

Yeah, I’d consider grabbing a little bag of it to help reach the shipping minimum in the future!!

I don’t really like this one. The flavor is a bit fake and weird. It’s not too tart, but its tartness also doesn’t hit in a very pleasant way. It doesn’t really have any notes that make me think smoothie, only sour orange. Milk made it taste a little better. I think I’d have it again that way, but it’s definitely not tasty enough to purchase.

drank Berries N'Cream by Cuppa Geek

The berry flavor turned out a little fake and chalky. Maybe it’s underleafed, but the black tea is a little watery as well. Unfortunately, this isn’t very tasty.

drank Orange Creamsicle by Cuppa Geek

The orange flavor here is so creamy and lovely. The orange is bright, juicy, and authentic. There’s something marshmallowy and fun in there too. I only have the advent amount, but I’d love to have more! I don’t notice the black tea or the rooibos really, which is fine because the flavoring is great. The resteep was super strong and tasty as well.

I love this one and Jaffa Cakes SO MUCH!

Oh I have that one but haven’t opened it yet! Looking forward to trying it!

drank Spiced Rum Raisin Cake by 52teas
1141 tasting notes

Plain, there’s too much bitterness, and the raisin sort of hits me wrong – it’s pretty grapey, which feels weird in a black tea to me. With milk, the flavors are smoothed over and I find myself enjoying it a little more. Raisin-y black teas aren’t really my thing, but it seems like this tea does a pretty good job at emulating what it’s supposed to. As it cools, it gets even more grapey, which I’m not loving.

With milk, this has a pretty nice, mild banana flavor. The rooibos itself is super strong and not the most pleasant of rooibos, so unfortunately it steals a lot of the attention. The coconut leaves a fresh, tasty coconut flavor that goes well with the banana. If the rooibos could be toned down, this would be a pretty great blend. And as usual, I wish the banana could be amped up even more!

I am pleasantly surprised with how much I like this one. :D

AJRimmer

Ha yeah, I only have one serving left from my 1 oz bag, so I must have enjoyed it pretty well too!

This has a mildly grapey, maybe wine-like taste. It’s not as tasty as the other flavors I’ve tried from this brand, but it does an all right job at fulfilling the prompt.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
