5 Tasting Notes
Wonderful! Right out of the gate I can taste the coconut and the citrus. It is a wonderful complement with the green tea. It is a bit bitter but perhaps I steeped it too long.
It has a very warm range of flavors to it and I really find it as a solid choice. It was on the shelf at Trader Joe’s and was $5 for 5oz which is a great deal!

Fantastic! It is a mild and delicious level of spice. Absolutely a wonderful tea! I couldn’t love this tea anymore than I do!
It is not a perfect score though because it does not have a defined enough level of spice to mix milk with it.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Rooibos
Awful! purely and simply terrible! While this tea smells absolutely divine it is far from that.
So initially I had my hopes for this sweet and savory smelling tea, it sounded and smelled like an excellent idea. The tea itself does taste okay, but it has a strange fruit taste to it. It was passable, until I drank some more.
This tea makes me feel (in a way I can only describe as this:), “barfy”. Perhaps this is only me and my stomach, but when I drink the tea, a sort of weight/chunkiness feeling arrives in my stomach. I feel nauseous as though I have thrown up. It is a weird and disgusting feeling.
I will be returning this tea as soon as possible.
Smells are the first thing I notice with any foodstuff that I purchase and I could not resist the purchase after smelling this tea. The aroma of the tea is sharp and fresh as spearmint gets. The smell clings to the back of your throat with a single whiff and gives the most delicate fragrance of citrus with the familiar and relaxing mint frost.
After heaping this into my teapot, the resulting drink was fantastic. The tea is very light with almost no bitter qualities to it with a 2-minute steeping time. The mint flavor was strong and defined in the tea, but was not similar to spearmint gum or some other overly sweet spearmint. That being said I am highly sensitive to a strong spearmint taste with a lot of sugar (making gum an unsettling adventure for me), this was not so. The mint in the tea was light enough that it did not upset my stomach in any way but instead soothed it.
This tea brought a smile to my face I was not expecting. The taste and smells are something I now look forward to in my evening routine before bed. I do not feel any effects of caffeine and this has put me in a state of tranquility that I do not commonly frequent.
