The scent is quite vegetal and somewhat savory. Though it was not refreshing, nor did it taste like ginger, I actually didn’t mind this tea. It has a nice roasted taste with slight vegetal notes and a hint of greenness. It has a somewhat full mouth feel with a slight astringency to it. Though I probably wouldn’t purchase the tea again, I found it acceptable and would drink it again.

The scent reminds me of roasted nuts with a woody and floral hint to it. The first thing I noticed about this tea was it’s creamy mouthfeel. The flavour is strong and almost reminds me of an oolong with a really nice roasted, buttery taste to it. I have to say this is one of my favorite teas I have tried thusfar and would really recommend it. Not only is it delicious, it is also on the cheaper side which is always a plus

The tea had a delicious, sweet, candy-like, strawberry scent. When I took my first sip I was greeted with an unpleasant surprise as it tasted quite vegetal and green with a slight bitterness. The aftertaste was almost chemical-like and unpleasant. Definitely not what I was expecting from the scent. After adding sugar, the tea was much better and a somewhat fruity flavour emerged, but to me the tea still tastes odd, and not very good.

When I first tasted this tea it was extremely tart and a bit bitter, with a horrible after taste. I prepared it like I normally prepare green tea and steeped it at 80 Celcius for 3 minutes. I had to add sugar to try and tone down the sourness of it as it was quite overpowering. Once sweetened it was actually quite nice. Though there was still a bit of sourness to it, it had a really nice floral taste which made up for it! Will have to try it again at either a lower temperature or shorter steeping time.

The slightly floral scent is quite inviting and the tea has a complex and subtle flavour. Tastes somewhat green with a hint of roasted nuts. Leaves your mouth feeling somewhat dry, but not in a bad way. Though not my favorite Oolong from Tea Sante, I quite enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.

Delicious orange flavour that almost seems a bit creamy. It has a hint of natural sweetness to it and the overal flavour is somewhat delicate. It tastes quite good on it’s own, but is real good steeped with a small piece of split vanilla bean. Would definitely recommend this tea.

Flavors: Blood orange, Sweet

Tastes quite herbaceous with notes of Thyme. There is a little bit of natural, fruity, sweetness to it, but that seems to get over powered by the notes of thyme. It doesn’t taste bad, just not what I was expecting from looking at the ingredients.

Delicious and refreshing tea with a lot of character. It has a deep fuchsia colour with notes of blueberry, raspberry, and just a hint of citrus. The tea has a bit of tartness to it, though it is not as intense as a straight Hibiscus tea, so I found I didn’t need to add sugar. Wonderful tea and I would definitely purchase it again

Tried this as a cold infusion iced tea today with a few orange slices added to it and found it absolutely delicious. It’s slightly tart, fruity, and very refreshing. It is probably my favorite iced tea thus far.

Flavourful tea that reminds me of an Oolong. It has a slightly astringent mouthfeel with subtle notes of roasted nuts. Not what I would have expected from a white tea, but I did enjoy it. I would drink it again but it isn’t something I would go out of my way for.
