User's reviews

  • Mulled Plum Cider

    

    I loved the smell of this tea when I opened it up, but it such a strange unpleasant flavor when I brewed it, even though I thought I would love the blend from the ingredients. Would not recommend.

  • APPLE CINNAMON

    

    I loved this really strong apple and cinnamon flavors, both brewed cold and hot--it was so nice to find an apple tea that wasn't overpowered by hibiscus flavors!

  • Autumn Mist Green

    

    This tea is absolutely DELICIOUS. It is so sweet and creamy, with the refreshing green tea layered underneath. Would recommend!

  • Gyokuro

    

    This tea was definitely not my thing--it was somehow both sweeter and more bitter than I wanted.

  • Christmas

    

    I love the idea of this tea, but I found the flavors a bit underwhelming. I would love to have more of the spices!

  • Hojicha

    

    The toasted flavor of this tea comes through really strongly, which I didn't love personally, but if you like roasted teas you'll enjoy this!

  • Jolly Roger

    

    This tea is great! The flavors are layered nicely. Sweet and warm tasting, even when cold-brewed.

  • Vanilla Oolong

    

    This tea is exactly as it sounds--a nice quality oolong layered with strong vanilla flavors. A good hot cup!

  • Ali Shan

    

    I agree with previous reviewers--this tea is definitely not bitter, but it was a bit earthy for my taste.

  • Formosa Ali Shan

    

    This tea is definitely high quality and complex, but I found it slightly too earthy for my taste.

  • Genmai Cha

    

    This tea really does taste like the toasted rice it contains! It's really unique. It's nutty, smooth, and filling--would recommend!

  • Teaster Marshmallow

    

    This was so delicious! It was light, smooth, and flavorful, perfect for both spring and all year round.

  • Jasmine Chun Hao

    

    I brewed this tea hot and felt it had a weird, acidic-type aftertaste.

  • White Peach

    

    I tried this tea hot and I found it pretty artificial-scented and -flavored, honestly--I was really disappointed by that.

  • Fujian Rain

    

    This made a strong, solid cup of oolong tea! Would definitely recommend if you're trying for an unflavored oolong!

  • Candy Cane

    

    Honestly I found the black tea a little bitter and the candy cane flavor not either sweet and strongly minty--not the tea for me.

  • Gunpowder

    

    This is a lovely, balanced, smooth green tea! I've disliked gunpowder green tea in the past and this changed my mind--definitely buying more!

  • Golden Flower

    

    This oolong was light and delicate when brewed--a great tasting and smelling tea!

  • Jade Oolong

    

    This is a good quality oolong, not too earthy like some oolongs are!

  • Ceylon Sonata

    

    Solid black tea, especially good with milk or cream!

  • Sleeping Dragon

    

    I found this tea was too grassy for me, but if you like vegetal green teas you would like this!

  • Ginseng Green

    

    Solid green tea with an energy and flavor kick! Might be a good entry tea into flavored green teas for those unfamiliar with them since it's subtle.

  • Pumpkin Spice

    

    I found this tea quite bitter, honestly--neither a sweet and creamy pumpkin flavor or a spicy nutmeg-type flavor came through for me.

  • Alpine Trails

    

    I found the spearmint flavor overpowering compared to the other flavors, but I also generally don't love super minty teas so that might be a personal preference.

  • Chocolate Chai

    

    Both the chocolate and chai spices come through when cold-brewed--would recommend!!

  • Honeybush Banana Nut

    

    This is a great banana nut tea! It is a comforting, warm flavor, although I would love if it was just a touch stronger or maybe had a bit of caramel flavor to fill it out and then it would be PERFECT

  • Earl Grey Bella Luna

    

    This is a solid earl grey, although I found the coconut flavor (while it made the cup sweeter and smoother) a bit strong for my taste--will probably regift this!

  • Earl Grey Bravo

    

    This tea wasn't for me--I found it somewhat bitter compared to other earl greys I have had, including from Adagio.

  • Kona Pineapple

    

    Maybe I just got a weird batch, but this tasted like a lemon/lemongrass tea to me--not pineapple-flavored at all

  • Lavender Lemon

    

    While the flavor of this tea was a little strong for me, if you love either lemon or lavender in tea you will definitely like this!!

  • Butterscotch

    

    I loved the smell--it's exactly like the pastry!--but I didn't actually much enjoy drinking this tea. It was very sweet smelling, but I didn't find it tasted much like the cookie.

  • Blood Orange

    

    If you really like citrus teas then you might enjoy this, but I found myself wishing the flavor was more complex or sweeter--both cold and hot.

  • Jasmine Yin Hao

    

    I found this jasmine tea was a bit heavier than the lighter versions I normally like, but a high quality tea regardless.

  • Vanilla Bean Macaron

    

    Smells exactly like a vanilla macaron, but I felt this tasted really artificial and overly sweet.

  • Chai Vanilla Caramel Latte

    

    I was surprised how much I like this! Both vanilla-sweet and spiced, although not spicy the way I normally like chai. The caramel comes through, too!

  • CHAMOMILE LEMON

    

    I love the idea of chamomile and lemon, but both flavors are somewhat weak in this tea.

  • Dragonwell

    

    This is a good quality tea, but was too nutty/buttery for my taste.

  • GUNPOWDER GREEN

    

    I'm not a fan of gunpowder green tea generally so take this with a grain of salt, but I found this tea bitter and unpleasant.

  • JASMINE GREEN

    

    I found this tea light, but not as sweet as it could be--it tasted somewhat bitter/astringent to me.

  • MOROCCAN MINT

    

    Very strong mint tea--if you're looking for a flavorful, bold mint cup, this is the one for you.

  • TOWER OF LONDON

    

    One of my favorite teas ever! A lovely twist on earl grey teas, sweet and smooth.

  • HOLIDAY TEA

    

    This tea is more fruity and almond-flavored than it is spiced, like a fruitcake!

  • ENGLISH BREAKFAST

    

    This is a quality english breakfast tea, but as with many of H&S's unflavored black teas it becomes bitter very easily.

  • ORGANIC GREEN WITH CITRUS & GINKGO

    

    This tea was good! It was a bit too citrusy for me personally, but if you like green citrus teas you will love this.

  • Florence

    

    This is a really high quality tea, sweet and balanced. I found the hazelnut was not quite my thing but I would 100% recommend this to someone who likes those flavors!

  • DARJEELING

    

    I'm not a huge fan of darjeeling, and this tea exemplifies why--I found it somewhat bitter and astringent.

  • VANILLA COMORO

    

    I personally found the vanilla in this tea both smelled and tasted quite artificial.

  • EARL GREY SUPREME

    

    I found this tea was a good quality earl grey with bold bergamot flavor, but it was easily oversteeped and became bitter.

  • DECAF CEYLON

    

    A wonderful decaf black tea! It retains all the bold but smooth flavor of regular Ceylon.

  • VALENTINE'S BLEND

    

    This is a good chocolate and rose tea! It is smooth and sweet without being overpowering. Neither ingredient tastes artificial as with some other chocolate or rose teas.

    

    This is one of my favorite teas! It is sweet and smooth with a wonderful bergamot flavor--would recommend to anyone!!

  • BLACK CURRANT

    

    This is a wonderful tea, especially in iced tea form! It is well-balanced, flavorful and a touch sweet.

  • JASMINE

    

    I found this jasmine tea was not nearly as sweet and light as I had hoped, but heavier and a touch bitter.

  • Wedding Tea

    

    Light, sweet, and floral--a well-blended combination of flavors!

  • VANILLA BLACK

    

    A pretty good vanilla tea! The vanilla smells just a touch artificial to me which is a bit off-putting, but it tastes wonderful.

    

    This tea is wonderfully sweet and a touch fruity with a soft bergamot, tasting as described--would recommend!

    This tea is lovely! The bergamot is clear without being overwhelming or bitter.

  • DECAF MIDSUMMERS PEACH

    

    I found this tea's smell alone to be very off-putting, like it was old or overly bitter.

  • ORGANIC JASMINE

    

    I found this tea was somewhat bitter smelling and tasting compared to other jasmine teas I have tried, and gave it away.

  • KORAKUNDAH

    I tried this tea and found it was not for me--I found it somewhat bitter when brewed hot.

  • ANNIVERSARY BLEND

    

    Really good cold-brewed! Complex combination of flavors, bold but not astringent black tea.

  • TEMI SIKKIM

    

    Not my favorite tea when hot, but very good cold-brewed! Cold-bringing really brings out honey flavors of this bold black tea.

  • ORGANIC BREAKFAST TEA

    

    This bold breakfast tea smells wonderful but becomes bitter very quickly when steeping, which I found difficult.

  • CHOCOLATE TEA

    

    I just did not enjoy this chocolate tea--I didn't feel the chocolate was either bold or sweet, which are the two kinds of chocolate teas I like.

  • CELEBRATION TEA - 20 SACHET TIN

    

    I think this is a solid tea, although I did not enjoy this tea's strong fruit and nut flavors personally as those aren't usually my kinds of flavors.

    

    I normally don't like white teas, but with combined with the bergamot this is a refreshing, interesting change to my normal earl grey addiction haha

  • ROYAL WEDDING TEA

    

    This is a solid tea! I normally find white/green teas with almond or floral flavors are touch and go for me, but this is refreshing with just a touch of sweet!

  • Citron Green

    

    Really good green tea! I found the citrus interesting without being too overpowering, like some teas. Less of a fruity tea and more of a gently flavored green tea.

  • Moonlight Jasmine

    

    Wonderful jasmine tea, my absolute favorite. Would recommend to both those who love jasmine and those just trying it for the first time!

  • Ruby Oolong

    

    Very tasty, quality oolong! Not too earthy like some oolongs are for me. I didn't find it at all bitter like the other reviewers warned, so maybe just be careful with the steeping time.

  • MASALA CHAI TEA CONCENTRATE

    

    This is my favorite chai concentrate! Wonderfully spicy and flavorful, I use it to make all my chai lattes!

    

    This tea does a good job balancing the spicy elderflower with other sweeter flavors.

    

    A good straightforward green and lemon tea! Good with and without sweetener.

  • LEMON & ORANGE TEA BAGS

    

    While I don't always love strong citrus flavors, this is a good citrusy black tea!

  • AFTERNOON DARJEELING Leaf Tea

    

    Darjeeling is not normally my "cup of tea," but if I am drinking Darjeeling I drink this one from ToH. Good quality inexpensive tea!

  • Cancer

    

    While this tea consists of ingredients I don't normally enjoy, I actually found it tasty and light and refreshing!

  • White Pear

    

    I couldn't get past the very strong, unpleasant smell of the batch I got, I'm afraid.

  • Irish Breakfast

    

    You'll enjoy this if you enjoy stout/malty teas! I found it was not for me, personally.

  • Brigadoon Breakfast

    

    A good malty tea! This makes a high quality, strong, black cup of tea.

  • Formosa Oolong

    

    I found this oolong almost bitter to my taste, but I can tell that it's a solid oolong and just not light enough for my taste--I regifted it.

  • Almond Oolong

    

    I discovered through this tea that I don't like almond-flavored tea, so if you don't love the flavor this might not be the tea for you, but I gifted this to a friend who does enjoy it.

  • Earl Grey Moonlight

    

    This is a wonderfully sweet earl grey tea! I would recommend this both to newer earl grey drinkers and to those who already love earl greys!

  • Earl Grey Green

    

    This really does layer earl grey flavors with the lightness of green tea!

  • Scottish Breakfast

    

    Good strong breakfast tea. If you enjoy scottish breakfast teas generally, you'll definitely enjoy this one!

  • Chai Classic Latte

    

    I prefer a stronger, spicier chai latte personally, but I used this sweeter, less strong concentrate until I found a spicier one.

  • Juniper Mint Honey

    

    Very refreshing tea! None of the flavors overwhelm the others and instead make a somewhat sweet, somewhat minty, somewhat berry-tasting tea.

  • Chai Pumpkin Spice Latte

    

    Very good pumpkin spice latte! Would definitely recommend using this to make lattes at home!

  • Refresh Mint

    Not normally a fan of mint teas with peppermint, but this tea is really refreshing!

    Very good earl grey tea! This tea is pleasantly light--the bergamot is very present but not overwhelming.

    Good solid black tea! Carries the bold flavor I normally associate with English Breakfast, especially in the loose leaf version.

  • Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride

    

    I really disliked this tea--I found the smell and flavor to be incredibly artificial in a very unpleasant way, I'm afraid.

  • Country Peach Passion

    

    This is a great peach-flavored tea! I love a cup of this in the summertime.

  • Sleepytime Vanilla

    

    I found the vanilla smell and flavor to be quite artificial, which I did not enjoy, especially layered over the herb/chamomile flavors of normal Sleepytime.

  • Lemon Lavender Lane

    

    This tea was both strongly lavender and lemon flavored--I found that these were not strong flavors I like to consistently drink, but if you like those flavors you will love this tea!

  • Sleepytime Classic

    

    I found the chamomile/herb-like aspects of this tea were too overpowering for me to enjoy drinking it, but the smell is indeed relaxing haha--if you like those flavors you should like this!

  • Raspberry Zinger

    

    Not a sweet raspberry tea, but a very tart one (which is not to my liking)--if that is what you are looking for then you might enjoy this!
