I love rooibos. This one is delicious. A smooth silky flavor.

Loved the smell of jasmine. It reminded me of lilacs, though I’m not accustomed to the scent of jasmine. Smelled more than it tasted. A good green tea, though green teas aren’t my favorite.

With four different black teas within, I expected this to be much stronger. I expect black teas to have tons of flavor. Maybe the four different teas cancel each other out and you don’t really get to appreciate each one individually. Not a tea I’d seek out in the future but it was nice to try in my Numi sampler!

ETA: And I always leave the tea bag in until I’m completely finished drinking, so it’s not like I took the tea bag out after two seconds!

This didn’t strike me as anything amazing. I thought it was taste great with the cinnamon rolls I had for breakfast. Maybe the cinnamon rolls stole the show.

Now this is the strongest chai I’ve had so far. I love it. It smells up the room.

Have you tried 52teas Mayan Chocolate Chai? Now, that is strong.

No, I haven’t! Onto the shopping list it goes. :D

If you like chocolate and cayenne in your chai, it’s AMAZING!

This doesn’t seem like a strong red tea and there isn’t a strong peach flavor either. I wouldn’t be able to tell you there was peach in it if it didn’t say so on the box.

drank Golden Chai by Numi Organic Tea

I liked this, but it wasn’t as strong as I’d like. I usually drink chai when I want the strongest flavor I can get out of a tea. (And I usually leave a tea bag in until I’ve completely finished drinking.) And I also think there is something going on with me and ginger. I do not dislike ginger but I have a suspicion I’m not exactly allergic but it isn’t good for me to be eating it.

Sad day, I love ginger!

I did not really taste an orange or a starfruit flavor with this one. It’s more like a plain chamomile. Disappointing.

I had no idea what this tea was before I tried it, but it was EXACTLY as I thought it would be. A nice scent and a nice flavor. It also doesn’t get bitter if you boil the water. I think it would be nice if Numi paired honeybush with some kind of melon flavor in another tea.

Received this as a sample. I was expecting a lot from this — as soon as I saw the ingredients combo. It sounded good but the flavor is very mild. I don’t think it tastes like chocolate or strawberry.. or rooibos for that matter.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
