  • Chocolate Chai

    

    Yum! This tea had all the flavors of chai plus chocolate! I used my big cup, so I let the tea steep longer (about 7 minutes) to ensure that it was flavorful enough. I think some people found this tea weak in flavor, so I would recommend steeping it longer. I drank this with milk and sugar.

  • Honeybush Hazelnut

    

    If you like hazelnut and honeybush tea, you'll obviously like this. I am not a fan of hazelnut. I do like honeybush tea but I don't like the nutty/woody flavor added by the hazelnut. I brewed it for recommend 212F for 5 minutes.

  • Gaucho Mate Chai

    

    This tea had a great chai flavor. All the spices were strongly present.

  • Passionfruit Tango

    

    Herbal teas with a lot of flavors can be hit or miss, but this one is a hit! When I opened my packet, there was a strong floral and spice scent that reminded me a bit of a really good smelling potpourri. I certainly wouldn't be mad if my house smelled like this tea!

    After steeping, this tea was a lovely reddish pink. It still had a strong fruity/floral scent. It was a little tart from the hibiscus and had a lot of fruity flavor with a bit of cinnamon. I steeped this tea for 10 minutes at 212F and I added just a tiny bit of sugar.

  • Teaster Marshmallow

    

    This tea had a really sweet, marshmallowy smell to it when brewed, but I found the taste to be a little too light for me. I added a slight but of sugar to try to bring out the favors more, but I still wasn't wowed. It wasn't bad, just a bit unmemorable.

  • Ginger Peach

    

    When I opened the tea I smelled ginger and peaches. I think I may have use a little too much water because after steeping, I mainly tasted black tea. I don't know if there would have been more peach and ginger flavor if I had used a smaller cup, but I don't think I'd go out of my way to drink this tea.

  • Pomegranate Green

    

    While I like green tea, I found this tea to be more raspberry than pomegranate to me.

  • Rooibos Lemon Cloud

    

    This tea was an interesting blend of rooibos and lemon. I am not a big fan of rooibos, so I probably wouldn't drink it again.

  • Tea-tox

    

    This tea mainly had an earthy, minty flavor. I can't say that I really appreciated this tea. I generally like 'health' teas, not for and supposed benefits, but because I bizarre enjoy the more medicinal flavors of ingredients such as licorice or eucalyptus. However, this tea just didn't really stand out.

  • Chocolate

    

    This tea has a strong chocolate smell when you open the package. I steeped this tea at 212F for 5 minutes as I prefer stronger tea than I get after 3 minutes of steeping. I added a spoonful of sugar and some milk and it was a creamy chocolate treat.

  • Rooibos Jasmine

    

    After steeping following the directions on the packet (5 minutes at 212F) I felt like all I tasted was rooibos tea. Rooibos has a strong, woody, almost raisin taste to me, so I think it must of overpowered any floral flavors. If you want a floral rooibos tea, you might be better off just buying plain rooibos and adding your own flavoring to suit your taste.

  • White Ayurvedic Chai

    

    This tea smelled absolutely lovely when I opened it. I love the flavors in chai, so I was very excited to taste this tea.

    I followed the directions to steep this tea for 5 minutes, but after the five minutes, I felt like the spice flavor was too weak, so I put my strainer back in for another 2minutes. After 7 minutes, the flavor of spice was more prominent, but the tea became a little more bitter than I prefer, so I added a dollop of honey.

    Overall, I found the tea a little mediocre. It's not bad, but there are certainly better chais out there. There's really nothing that makes it stand out.

  • Hunan Gold

    

    This is a very lovely green tea. I steeped this tea for less time than recommended (1.5 minutes at 180F) as I think 2-3 minutes is way too long for green tea unless you plan to make bitter leaf juice.

    After steeping, this tea had a very mild leafy flavor without any bitterness. I enjoyed it so much I went in for a second steep (1 minute at 180F) and it was just as pleasant as the first cup.

  • Thai Chai

    

    The first thing I smelled when opening my packet was coconut and cinnamon. The directions recommend 2 heaping spoonfuls of tea per 8oz cup, but I only received one spoonful of tea in my packet. As I don't own a tiny cup, I opted to steep this tea longer than recommended (8 min at 212F).

    While hot, I mainly tasted and smelled cinnamon. After the tea cooled a little, I tasted a lot more coconut. I believe the ginger and cardamom flavors were present, but they acted more like backup to the stronger coconut and cinnamon flavors. The cinnamon and ginger also leave a spicy feeling on your tongue.

  • Fiery Cinnamon Spice

    

    The scent of this tea was very strong, but the cinnamon flavor was very weak once brewed. I was a little disappointed and will stick with other brands when buying cinnamon tea.

  • Daydream

    

    This tea is well balanced, Even though it uses many strongly flavored ingredients, no one of them overwhelms the flavor of the tea. They all come together into a very pleasant cup.

  • Casablanca Twist

    

    I think this is a good tea for people who are not big fans of mint. The mint is light enough that it adds to the flavor of the tea instead of overwhelming it.

  • Rooibos Caramel

    

    I think it tastes like raisins? I don't know if this is from the rooibos or something else. It wasn't gross, but I wouldn't buy it.

  • Foxtrot

    

    If you like chamomile and peppermint, you will probably like this. I do not.

    The balance between the chamomile and peppermint was good, but I did not taste any vanilla.

  • White Eternal Spring

    

    I was not a fan of this tea. It smelled very floral and fruity, but the taste was extremely subtle. I found the contrast between the scent and flavor off putting and unpleasant. I would not drink this again.

  • White Strawberry

    

    I am not a huge fan of white tea, but this one was pretty nice. It had a lot of strawberry pieces so it had a reasonable amount of strawberry flavor when brewed. I would recommend added a little sugar because the dried strawberries have a tartness to them.

  • Apricot Green

    

    The flavor of the tea is balanced with a nice floral undertone. I would recommend only steeping this tea for 2 minutes at 180F or less so that the tea does not become overly bitter.

  • Fruity Sangria

    

    This brews up with a beautiful red color. The flavor is fruity and tart.

  • Ginger Peach Cinnamon

    

    This is my favorite tea from tea guys. It tastes great as both a hot tea and an iced tea. The peach taste goes surprisingly well with cinnamon. I usually drink it with some sugar, but no milk.

  • Chaider

    

    This tea is a fun tea that brings apple cider and chai together.

  • Ti Kuan Yin

    

    It was pretty amazing how much these leaves expanded! I brewed mine at a lower temperature than recommend (190F), but the tea still tasted really good. The tea also had a strong floral scent ( but no floral flavor).

  • Currant

    

    This tea had a little bit of currant flavor but it wasn't that strong. I don't think I really enjoy black teas with fruity flavors.

  • Formosa Oolong

    

    I think this tea wasn't too astringent when compared to other oolong teas.

  • Assam Harmony

    

    This tea is fine. I enjoy black tea in the morning for the caffeine, so I was excited to try this tea. However, I did taste any of the flavors Adagio described. I added cream and sugar as was recommended and I wonder if that overwhelmed the other flavors. In the end, I didn't feel like this tea was special enough for me to want to order any more.

  • Chamomile

    

    I am not a fan of chamomile, which is why I'm not scoring it higher. It did seem to be a good quality, but it just doesn't taste good to me

  • HOT CINNAMON SPICE

    

    This tea was so delicious and spicy! They are very generous with the cinnamon flavor. I enjoyed mine with a little bit of sugar.

  • LEMON GINGER HERBAL TEA

    

    This tea has a very balanced taste and is a little naturally sweet.

  • Cha Cha

    

    I was expecting more mint and lemongrass. I think there may be too much camomile for me.

  • Bella Luna Blue

    

    I tasted more lemongrass than blueberry, but the color was very fun! If you add lemon, the tea will change color, too!

  • Irish Breakfast

    

    It tastes like irish breakfast. I don't think it tastes particularly different than any other irish breakfast tea, but it seems like it is good quality. I drunk it with milk and sugar.

  • Jolly Roger

    

    This tea has a great butterscotch flavor. Since I find sugarbush tea naturally sweet, I only added a tiny bit of sugar. I don't think I really tasted any banana, but I still enjoyed the tea

  • Pu-erh Spice

    

    The spices in this tea worked well together and I didn't think it needed any sugar. I rinsed my pu-erh before brewing, but I don't think you need to with this tea.

  • Honeybush Pumpkin Chai

    

    I think the flavor balance of this tea was poor. There was much too much cinnamon and it overpowered the other flavors and gave the tea a strange aftertaste.

  • Rooibos Almond

    

    This tea was excellent. With a spoonful of sugar, it tasted just like marzipan. I'm not usually a fan of rooibos tea, but I would definitely drink this again.

  • Spiced Mate

    

    I feel like this tea was a strange combination of bubblegum and spice drops. I also don't think the mate was able to contribute much flavor due to the heavy spices.

  • White Pear

    

    I was very disappointed in this tea because I couldn't taste any pear.

  • COLD 911 (ORGANIC)

    

    This tea is very invigorating! It has a strong mint flavor, but the other ingredients add depth to the flavor. It definitely cleared my sinuses.

  • Mocha Nut Mate

    

    I thought the flavors went together, but I didn't actually like the flavors. I like coffee, so the watery coffee flavor made me feel like I was drinking bad coffee from a fast food restaurant.

  • Pumpkin Spice

    

    This tea smelled nice, but I wasn't satisfied with the taste. I felt like it had a weird watery squash undertone that was mildly off-putting. It also needed more spice.

  • Rooibos Cocomint

    

    I surprisingly liked this tea because I don't like rooibos! It reminded me of a thin mint cookie.

  • 40 Winks

    

    I thought this tea was nice, but I'm not sure it made me sleepy. I think it's comparable to other sleepy-time or calming teas. I enjoyed the lavender flavor.

  • PEACH

    

    Excellent strong peach flavor! I drank it hot with sugar.

  • Hazelnut

    

    I dislike the smell of hazelnuts, but they taste really good in this tea.

  • Decaf Tropics

    

    This tea is jam packed with flavors, buuuut I don't really like them! I'm not a fan of pina colada type flavors.

  • Summer Rose

    

    I love anything with rose! This had a strong rose scent and flavor.

  • Pina Colada

    

    I was prepared to not like this tea because I hate pina coladas, but it was really tasty! The additional fruits bring it outbid traditional pina colada territory.

  • Citrus Mate

    

    This tea has a strong lemon flavor that reminds me a bit of lemon icing.

  • Mango Mate

    

    I didn't really feel like this tea had any mango flavor.

  • Green Rooibos Key West

    

    I thought this tea was too subtly flavored for me.

  • Chocolate Chip

    

    So delicious and chocolaty! I added a little bit of sugar and some oat milk.

  • Darjeeling Puttabong Summer

    

    I'm not an expert about different types of teas, but I did enjoy this. I was concerned that the tea would be weak because if the light color, but it was very flavorful. On my second cup, I added a thin sliced of lemon.

  • Fruit Medley

    

    While hot, I was getting a lot of hibiscus flavor so I added some sugar. Then it just tasted like fruit punch. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the experience I was looking for.

  • Dewy Cherry

    

    This tea had a strong cherry scent, but not much of a cherry flavor. Cherry must be a challenging flavor to recreate as tea.

  • Mambo

    

    I smelled chocolate when I opened this tea. Brewed, it had a pleasant toasted flavor.

  • White Grapefruit

    

    I hate white tea, but this one is awesome. It has a nice grapefruit flavor. I sweetened it with honey and enjoyed it iced.

  • Dragon Fruit Dream

    

    This tea smells great and is packed with dragon fruit flavor. I liked it iced and I don't think it needs any sweetener.

  • Honeybush Wild Berry

    

    This tea had a strong cherry medicine smell and I really couldn't enjoy it

  • Calypso Green

    

    This tea has a strong tropical flavor and the fruits make it naturally sweet. I tried it iced and hot and enjoyed it both ways

  • Citrus Mint Green

    

    I thought it could use a bit more citrus, but the tea was still very delicious and refreshing. The mint was not overwhelming.

  • Decaf Mango

    

    I just really didn't taste mango and if I'm going to drink decaf, it better make up for it with the flavor.

  • Coconut Pouchong

    

    It was a very fragrant tea, bit it didn't have as strong of a coconut taste as I'd prefer.

  • Conga

    

    This tea was very fruity. Even though raspberries were on the ingredient list, I couldn't taste them, which I appreciated because I hate raspberries.

  • Wuyi Ensemble

    

    I really couldn't appreciate the flavor of this tea. I couldn't taste any of the flavors described.

  • Honeybush Chocolate

    

    This tea has a pleasant chocolate flavor and it had a natural sweetness, so I didn't need to add sugar.

  • Honeybush Vanilla

    

    I could definitely taste the vanilla in this tea, but I also thought it tasted like raisins. I couldn't really enjoy it due to personal preferences.

  • Butterscotch

    

    This tea smells and tastes very strongly of butterscotch. I add just a bit of sugar. I drank it without milk, but I think it would probably taste good with milk or cream added.

  • Blood Orange

    

    The only taste is orange, so it's a bit like drinking orange juice. I wouldn't recommend it hot because it is like drinking hot orange juice. I think I prefer orange as an accent flavor in tea instead of the main flavor.

  • Kona Pineapple

    

    Even though I steeped it for 10 minutes, I felt like the flavor was still very subtle. I prefer stronger flavored tea.

  • Lavender Lemon

    

    It is has a very pleasant lemon and lavender flavor.

  • Mango

    

    This tea has a strong mango scent, but the taste is more subtle. Adding a little sugar enhanced the mango for me.

  • Lemon Soleil

    

    I was very excited about this tea because I love black tea with lemon, but my sample had no lemon flavor. I may have gotten a bad blend. Either way, I was disappointed.

  • White Tropics

    

    This tea is okay. It's very fruity, so if you like pina coladas you'll probably like this. I'm just not a huge fan of white tea.

  • Decaf Peach

    

    This tea has a great peach flavor. While you could drink it hot, I think it is ideal for iced tea. Since it's decaf, you can enjoy it any time of day.

  • Kukicha

    

    This tea has a very leafy/grass quality without being overly bitter. I followed the brewing instructions and drank it hot.

  • Peach Serenity

    

    I found this tea pretty flavorless. I even steeped it the full 10 minutes. I prefer my fruit teas to have a stronger flavor.

  • Fujian Rain

    

    I found this tea easy to drink. Unlike some oolongs, I didn't find the flavor overpowering. It instead has a light toasted flavor. I did not taste any of the apricot flavor that's in the description.

  • Hibiscus

    

    I thought that this tea was pretty good. In some teas, the flavor of hibiscus can be overwhelming, but it is balanced with the black tea. I drank it with a little sugar.

  • Lychee Rose Green

    

    This tea is perfect for anyone who likes floral flavors. The floral fruitiness of the lychee pairs really well with the rose. It has a natural sweetness that cuts the bitterness that green tea can have.

  • Mango Melange

    

    This is an extremely fruity tea and the hibiscus is not overpowering. I'd recommend it as an iced tea. I did not need to add sugar because it is naturally sweet.

  • Grapefruit Oolong

    

    This tea was just alright to me because I'm not a huge fan of oolong tea. It has a noticable smell and flavor of grapefruit, which I thought was really good.

  • Green Rooibos Bonita

    

    I thought this tea was deliciously fruity. All the fruits complimented each other to create a well blended flavor. This tea is naturally a little sweet, so I didn't add any sugar.

  • Earl Grey Bella Luna

    

    This is one of my absolute favorite teas. The coconut flavor is incredibly delicious mixed with the Earl grey tea.

  • Decaf Orange

    

    I got this as a sample, but it turns out I'm not a big fan of black tea with orange. The tea seems to be a fine quality and the orange and black tea have a good balance.

  • White Peach

    

    I am not a fan of white tea, but this one is great! It has a really strong peach flavor. I think it tastes best iced with a little sugar.

  • White Fuzzy Navel

    

    I'm not sure what a fuzzy navel tastes like, but I mainly taste peach. There is nothing wrong with this tea, but also nothing special about it.

  • Formosa Bai Hao

    

    This tea has a very smooth flavor and s small amount of leaves can go a long way.

  • Key Lime Herbal

    

    I thought the lime taste overpowered everything else.

  • Watermelon Cooler

    

    This isn't my favorite watermelon tea, but it's still really great! It has an excellent balance of flavors. I recommend it iced with a little bit of sugar.

  • Lemon Meringue Green

    

    I'm so impressed with this tea. The lemon is so bright and the vanilla and cream flavors add a marshmallowiness to it. It tastes like a dreamy lemon dessert in a cup.

  • Wild Strawberry

    

    This tea is so incredibly packed with strawberry flavor. I think it tastes particularly good as iced tea with just a little sweetener.

  • Lemongrass Ginger

    

    I drink a lot of Jammin' Lemon Ginger from Celestial Seasoning, and this is like the fancier version of that! Great for relaxing at night!

  • Bonfire

    

    This tea is incredibly smokey and incredibly delicious. It has a great spicy taste to it, but I think adding cream and sugar makes it even better.

  • Tension Tamer

    

    I love this tea blend. It's great to drink at night.

  • Grapefruit

    

    This tea was very refreshing with loads of grapefruit flavor. I love it as an iced tea.

  • just beet it

    

    I found this tea very flavorful and I could drink it without sweetener. It also is a fun red color.

  • Mulled Wine

    

    I think this tea has a strong orange and clove taste, which isn't my favorite, but I think that it's pretty true to a mulled wine.

  • SAIGON CHAI (ORGANIC)

    

    This tea is very spicy and flavorful. I usually mix it with a plain black tea to make it stronger.

  • PARIS

    

    To me, this tea has a strawberries and cream vibe. It's very tasty and we'll balanced.

  • Jammin' Lemon Ginger

    This is my go to night time tea. Very tasty without caffeine!

  • Candy Cane Lane

    

    I don't like many mint teas, but the added spices create a winning combination.

  • Authentic Green

    

    It's a fine tea. Nothing outstandingly good or outstandingly bad about it.
