This tea is really interesting because it is actually tea. It is made from the flowers of the tea plant. I steeped 2 tsp in hot water for 2 minutes.
It has a puerh type flavour (aged flavour, a bit musty, but nothing like ripe), I wouldn’t call it floral exactly, but it is very sweet (nectar, smells intensely of honey). It has the sweetness of dried fruit (think apply chips or dried apricots). It is quite unique because it isn’t similar to any herb or tea I’ve had before (except other tea flower teas). If you like flavours of honey, bamboo shoots or bamboo flour, and dried fruit, you will probably enjoy this tea.
Flavors: Bamboo, Dried Fruit, Honey, Musty, Nectar
I’m not getting any smoke, but I can taste dates and citrus fruits in a fruity and floral black base. Not a lot going on in this cup, but it was stored with other teas and I only took 1/2 tsp out of the TTB. I brewed for 8 minutes, but I also used ~600 mL hottish water.
Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Fruits, Dates, Floral, Fruity, Tannin
Sipdown! Cold brewed 1 tsp leaf in 500 mL cold water (cold brew in my Teavana Perfecttea maker) It handled three steeps quite well.
This is a delicious blend that is enjoyable hot, cold, with sweetener, with milk, plain. It’s super versatile and very drinkable plain or with additives. You can’t overbrew it, either. I will be buying a larger amount next time I order from American Tea Room. This is going to become a staple in my cupboard, it’s soooo good. Cream, caramel, rootbeer, honeybush sweetness. Just so good.
Flavors: Caramel, Cream, Creamy, Root Beer, Sweet
To this day, I pronounce it “sasparilla”. I think I misheard it in a children’s show or something a long time ago and only not realise I’ve had it wrong this whole time. Well, I was partially correct.
This tastes like foamy rootbeer, with undertones of caramel, vanilla, cream, cinnamon, and brown sugar. A beautiful and unique dessert tea that is also great with sweetener or iced (I find it tastiest hot/plain, but whatever floats your boat!) It is also far superiour to that rootbeer float black tea sample I’ve been holding onto since last summer from David’sTeas. a) its herbal b) it is a much creamier and more complex in flavour, which makes it a more pleasant drink. I really like how buttery and caramelly it is, without being too extreme in any direction.
Flavors: Bark, Brown Sugar, Butter, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cream, Creamy, Root Beer, Sarsaparilla, Sweet, Vanilla

No. Just no. This tea made me nauseous. The smell makes me nauseous and the taste makes me nauseous too. Its way too sweet. Way too marzipan. Theres nothing that cuts that sweetness. It needed another component…like more nuts or apple or something. The sweetness was too overpowering. I wish I never got it such a waste of money!
Flavors: Cherry, Marzipan, Sweet
I dont know! I dont know how i feel about this tea…it smells almost like forever nuts from DAVIDsTEA. It doesn’t taste that way though. I do get a hint of bread/yeast. It almost tastes like sweetbread filled with almonds and almond cream or something. But not in a cherry/artificial way. In a good way. I am gonna try it again tomorrow and see how i feel then.
Flavors: Almond, Baked Bread, Cinnamon, Sweet, Yeast
One of the best spelling teas yet!
Hints of honey, date, fig, caramelised pecan/toffee, almond, cherry, and marzipan. These delicious flavours are accompanied by vanilla and black tea. It is all around spiced, creamy, and very nutty. Absolutely delicious! I’m glad I added this caffeinated tea to my cart. I don’t need more caffeine, but you know how it goes with teas.
Flavors: Almond, Creamy, Dates, Fig, Honey, Marzipan, Nutty, Spices, Tannin, Vanilla
Sipdown of the most boring tea ever. Almost no flavour at all. I resorted to using it up by mixing it was spearmint, peppermint, or chamomile. Today’s cold brew was 2 tsp linden leaf + 1 tsp spearmint, and it was 90% spearmint in flavour. It was interesting to try, but I wouldn’t buy linden leaf/flower again unless it was in a blend. This would make a lovely base for a herbal because of its inert flavour and health properties.

This has very little taste, except a faint hint of hay and dried green leaf. I’ll be mixing it with peppermint or spearmint probably. I’ve heard it has a lot of great health benifits. I’m sure this is high quality linden leaf, because I’ve been extremely impressed with the other teas from ATR. I think this herb just doesn’t have very much flavour.
For reference, I brewed 8 minutes at 90 deg C.
