i love this tea for just sitting writing essays. it’s not bitter, and I don’t think it’s actually capable of being so. it has a very delightful, earthy taste that i love in an oolong. it’s smell is unique and fresh.

this is a light green tea (as they’re wont to be). I brew it for quite of bit, but it still only keeps a very refreshing taste. It’s not a fruity tea, and also not too bitter. Really, it only has a little bit of a bitter kick after a sip. It’s absolutely delightful as a daily tea.

This tea is pretty meh. I have a much better chamomile blend at home, but when I’m working this is the best tea they have available (and when you’re working for Guest Services, something calming is always best).

It does indeed calm you, but it doesn’t have a particularly strong taste of anything to it. This is definitely a light tea, and it takes about five minutes to brew it to my liking. The tea sachet itself is a pretty decent quality— I don’t find floating dust at the bottom of my cup like I do with most very cheap teas— but the flavor is overall lacking.

To describe it, I’d say it has a minty smell and initial taste, with the aftertaste being just a whiff of chamomile. The initial minty taste’s intensity if drastically cut by being mixed with the chamomile, though.

Flavors: Floral, Mint, Spearmint
