I thought this one was just an odd combination of flavors. I love jasmine, but I think it’s too light a flavor and scent to work in this application. It just gets drowned out by the cinnamon and orange peel which dominate the cup. Then when you do get a hint of it, it feels out of place in what tastes more like a green chai. Not really my style.

Lovely aroma from the lavender, bergamot and vanilla. In the loose-leaf version that I had, I found their impact on the flavor of the brewed tea was a little muted. There’s definitely some floral character, but it mostly tastes like black tea to me. As I usually tend toward greens, this makes it pretty good in my book, but not a favorite.

This has a very unique flavor, which I find hard to describe. There’s an earthy, possibly smoky aspect to it that is unlike any traditional green tea I’ve had before. The flavor is strong and feels pretty complex to me, with what might be some umami notes, but what I think I’d mostly call it a pleasant bitterness at the finish. In any case, it is unlike any tea I have had before, and in a good way. I wouldn’t drink it daily, but it’s a nice interspersion as a change of pace.

I love this tea. It’s a green with mint and bergamot, which sounds like a bit of an odd combination, but it works incredibly well. It’s hard to detect the flavor notes of either of those two ingredients; they seem to meld into a combined aroma and taste all of its own that is distinct and different from its constituent parts. It’s refreshing yet complex, a fantastic tea for any season.

Rather indistinct, possibly too subtle for me to enjoy. Not much aroma or flavor of bergamot in the brewed cup. I don’t detect much unique character from the darjeeling either; whether that’s due to the bergamot that is there or an inexperienced palate I don’t know. In the end, it has kind of a generic tea flavor. That said, I note very little tannin, so it is a fairly pleasant, smooth cup, but nothing else really stands out to me.

drank Jasmine Green Tea by Rishi Tea

Pleasant floral jasmine notes in a well-balanced cup. Jasmine flavor and scent feels like a good amount to accent the green tea.

drank Peach Jasmine by Rishi Tea

Very mild and almost nondescript. There are some sweet tones that could be peachy, but almost no jasmine detectable. Easy to slip into drinking it mindlessly, since there are few flavors or aromas to bring you back to your drink.

Pretty average for a flavored green tea. It’s rather tart; there’s a lot of lemon/lemongrass flavor that really hits you with a blast of citrus right at the outset. Then followed by a fairly standard grassy green tea finish. Not a hint of apricot that I could discern. It’s fine, and drinkable, but probably not something I’d seek out again.

Aroma and flavor are pretty good, but there is so much sediment from the ginkgo that it makes for a cloudy cup that gets gritty toward the bottom. Not really worth it unless you really want ginkgo. I can pass.

Really quite a nice Earl Grey. Lots of bergamot flavor that comes through. Some other Earl Grey teas I’ve tried have been more subtle, but I tend to like it a bit assertive, which Republic is. That said, it’s still nicely drinkable; the flavors are well-blended and not harsh at all.
