I depleted my rooibos stores the other day, and bought this tea and the Choice Rooibos Superfruit so that I have some nice antioxidant-packed, caffeine-free evening beverages (I can’t seem to get into chamomile). The chai spices work very well with the rooibos. They are not overwhelming, but they definitely are stronger than the rooibos flavor. The local tea store near my sister’s house has some decent loose rooibos that I’ll have to purchase next month. In the meantime, I will enjoy this tea. Hopefully the Rooibos Superfruit is a good one as well.
My favorite local store always has a great variety of teas from this brand, and I am always happy with their products. The box indicates that the tea is a combination of Ceylon and Assam. I definitely enjoyed the smoothness of the Ceylon. There’s a little Assam kick, good for the second cup of the day…I would definitely prefer more Assam to get going on a weekday. If I had to rate Cheapster Steepster English Breakfast Teas, I would put this one above Twinings, but below my beloved Ahmad. :P Ahmad somehow finds a way to get the right combination of smoothness and strength into a regular tea bag…quite an art.
Picked up this tea at an organic store looking for something new, wasn’t sure what to expect. Off the bat, the steeped scent is great. Subtle, very much a tea scent, and very enjoyable. It’s nothing I can complain about. I’d say it’s even slightly floral.
The first thing I notice when I drink this tea is that it’s slightly bitter. Otherwise, I wouldn’t say the taste is phenomenal or worth mentioning to a friend. It’s pretty subtle, enjoyable, but doesn’t really have anything that stands out to me. Don’t get me wrong, I do like it and won’t mind drinking it in the future, but it’s not what most people would look for in a tea. I wouldn’t recommend it to casual tea drinkers, as it may come off as being like one is drinking hot water or a very diluted tea.
Overall: gorgeous scent, lovely, I love the scent. Taste is good, but subtle, so I can’t say I would recommend it unless you like that kind of subtlety in your tea. Definite tea flavor though!
Flavors: Flowers, Tea
The dry teabag smells entirely of peppermint, specifically those peppermint puff candies I love. The color is red with a border of green and the taste is peppermint with the cloying artificial sweetness of licorice. I don’t mind licorice candy so much, but I’m not a fan of the flavor in tea. A tiny bit of honey smooths it out a bit without adding extra sweetness.

Jamming on this little ditty, this cold snowy Monday morning. I’ve always enjoyed this one. Mint and the mate blend well together. Gives you that extra boost you may need to get your work week started. Plus its a quick one to prepare when you are up against deadlines. If you enjoy mint teas, I’d recommend this one. Happy Monday everyone!
Flavors: Creamy, Mint
