  • SWEET DREAMS TEA BAGS

    

    This is a great option if you're stuck with grocery store choices. I'm a peppermint fan but not a chamomile fan, so it works well for me that it's peppermint heavy. No caffeine means you can drink it anytime, but it did not help me feel sleepy - just minty, which I'll take.

  • Formosa Oolong

    

    The taste is earthy, very much like a mild black tea but without much astringency. It's rather plain, so if that's your thing you'll love it. It's not my thing.

  • Honeybush

    

    Plain honeybush is a little disappointing; however, it makes an excellent base for a hot blend. Mild, slightly sweet, and a bit earthy, it begs to be dressed up and made into a pretty princess.

  • White Strawberry Basil

    

    This tisane is a wonderful option for kids, or for times when caffeine is out of the question. It's not basil heavy but isn't just strawberry either.

  • Rooibos Mango

    

    I really liked this tea; however, it wasn't very mango. The flavor was rooibos and generic "fruit." Nonetheless, it was quite tasty and went very well with butter cookies.

  • Peach Oolong

    

    A great lower-caffeine alternative to black tea with a lot of peach flavor and scent. Makes for a great afternoon tea.

  • Sleeping Dragon

    

    Green teas are not my favorite but this one lacks the "grass" flavor and the smoky undercurrent makes it unique. If green was my thing this would be it.

  • Lemongrass

    

    This is a super mild tea. It's lemon, but not overwhelmingly so. No savory at all, not grassy. Just mildly lemon.

  • Jasmine Chun Hao

    

    I'm not a fan. The floral is very strong and it feels and tastes like drinking perfume. If you REALLY like Jasmine you might like it.

  • Valentines

    

    This blend has the opportunity to be 5-star, but needs to up the strawberry and chocolate flavors. I get mostly tea flavor with an undercurrent of something vaguely fruity. The desired flavor would not be recognizable without the description.

  • White Peach

    

    Great with a bit of sugar, both hot and cold. Very balanced and quite peachy without being overbearing.

  • Cha Cha

    

    I'll preface by saying I don't like chamomile. This tea would be great if I did because there's a LOT of chamomile. I'll not buy again.

  • Spiced Apple Chai

    

    A nice evening cuppa, spices are all present and accounted for and apple is a subtle player. Overall a nice quiet evening tea.

  • Fujian Orchid

    

    This is a very smooth, mellow tea good for unwinding after a long day at the clinic. Lightly floral and close in flavor to jasmine tea, but not exactly the same.

  • Rooibos

    

    Tastes like wood. Not horrible, but not for me. I love rooibos blends, but not on its own. Perhaps with enough sweetener it would work.

  • Sencha Overture

    

    A very grassy green that tastes a bit like seaweed. Adding a touch of sugar improved the flavor for me, but greens are not really to my tastes.

  • Melonberry Green

    

    Mostly berry and green with only slight melon flavor. I would like it more with stronger watermelon taste, but it's not bad.

  • Pu-erh Hazelberry

    

    This was pleasant, but did not wow me. The players are all there and the nu and berry work well together.

  • Campfire S'Mores

    

    I taste a mild chocolate flavor and a hint of what could be marshmallow, but none of the

    graham cracker or smokiness. Perhaps my sample was missing something.

  • Tiger Eye

    

    Love. It. The chocolate is present but the caramel is the star of this show. A touch of added milk and sugar make a perfect dessert cup.

  • Milk Oolong

    

    Very light and buttery. Needs sugar. A definite departure from the norm for me, but would drink again.

  • Yunnan Jig

    

    This is a strong, earthy black tea. I prefer this one with a bit of sugar but no milk. Good on its own or with food.

  • Mandarin Green

    

    This is less an orange green tea and more a green tea that was thinking about oranges. The mandarin flavor is far too subtle for my tastes.

  • Golden Turmeric Chai

    

    Preface my review with the idea that I absolutely hate the taste of tumeric. Review: Gross. This is a solid nope from me.

  • Foxtrot

    

    Heavily chamomile, if you like that sort of thing. I do not. I would like to have more mint come through.

  • Kentucky Bourbon

    

    The package smells exactly like bourbon and the tea tastes nothing like bourbon. I ended up getting the taste I wanted by adding actual bourbon.

  • Chocolate Chai Pu Erh

    

    Chocolate and spice and everything nice. I am new to pu-erh but this was a great opening volley.

  • Chocolate Truffle

    

    Pretty good, but less chocolate than I'd hoped for. I expected a lindor truffle and got hershey's syrup. Would drink but not buy.

  • Rooibos Vanilla

    

    A good vanilla flavor without overwhelming tea in the background. Definitely needs sugar but little else.

  • Aphrodite

    

    Another great dessert tea, I was able to easily distinguish the advertised strawberry, cream, and chocolate flavors. Quite well balanced.

  • Honeybush Banana Nut

    

    Banana nut bread in a cup. This is an excellent dessert style tea that stands alone or goes very well with baked items.

  • Butterscotch

    

    Even my non-tea-loving husband and daughter really enjoyed this. It tastes like warm butterscotch pudding with a touch of sugar added.

  • White Blueberry Iced Tea

    

    I've had both this and the hot version, and frankly I like the hot better. There's not much "tea" flavor to it, which makes me feel like I'm drinking kool-aid when cold.

  • Decaf Spice

    

    I liked this one quite a lot. The taste is exactly what I think of when I think "Chai." Being a decaf makes it a bit better as a choice for evening than a caffeinated tea as well.

  • Jump Start

    

    The best way I can describe this taste is "woody." The cinnamon is front and center, but the mate taste is very strong. Not bad, but not likely to be a regular for me.

  • Blackberry Sage Oolong

    

    I'm pleasantly surprised by how well the save works in the tea. Also of note, the flavor is definitely "berry" rather than the generic "fruity" I was afraid of getting.

  • Double Ginger

    

    This tea is ginger medicine. It hits hard and will clear your sinuses. I'll be adding a bit of lemon and whiskey and calling it a nice strong hot toddy.

  • Rooibos Vanilla Chai

    

    This is a solid chai. The vanilla comes through but is not overwhelming, and the spice is well balanced. This would work well as a dessert tea or an afternoon/evening indulgence.

  • Dragonwell

    

    This is a nice basic green tea. Buttery notes and mild, it would be good cold too.

  • Assam Melody

    

    This is a lovely, smooth "tea flavored tea." I enjoyed it as an accompaniment to a noodle dish and it was lovely.

  • Almond

    

    Strong almond aroma and flavor. Adding a bit of milk and sugar made this perfect. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

  • Summer Night

    

    There's no nice way to say it... This tea is bland. The orange and mint flavors are there, they're just weak.

  • Pu-erh Tahiti

    

    This is a good tea with a hint of tropical flavor and no astringency whatsoever. it would be suited well for any time of day.

  • Silver Sprout

    

    It's pretty plain green tea, which is fine. It's boring, not bad. I would drink it when offered but will not likely buy again.

  • English Breakfast

    

    This is a nice alternative to coffee in the morning or a good evening cup. Its not too overwhelming but strong enough to be effective.

  • Rooibos Earl Grey

    

    This is earl grey lite. The milder rooibos flavor allows the bergamot and orange to come through nicely. A mellow tea I'd enjoy in the evening.

  • Mango Green Iced Tea

    

    I'm not generally an iced tea drinker, but this one is pretty good. My husband likes it as well, which is notable as we don't usually agree on tea.

  • Rooibos Nutcracker

    

    This is an excellent tea. It's nutty without being overpowering and has a nice undertone of caramel.

  • Honeybush Blueberry Pancake

    

    Shockingly authentic. The blueberry and syrup flavors come through, with a hint of something floury or bready on the finish. Tastes like what it says - blueberry pancakes.

  • Christmas

    

    A nice Christmassy black teablend with subtle orange and spice. Gets the point across without being overpowering. Probably won't drink regularly, but wouldn't turn down an offered cup.

  • White Chai

    

    A weak chai. The white tea is too weak to support the spice flavors, most notably the peppercorn, giving the impression that I simply didn't steep my tea long enough. I'll pass on more.

  • Yuletide Toddy

    

    Very Christmas. A nice blend of apple cider and cranberry flavors. Going just a hint stronger with the spices would have made this a 5 star review.

  • Bella Luna Blue

    

    Opening the package smells like fruity pebbles. The sweet flavor is very welcome in the evening or afternoon when you don't need any extra caffeine, and my daughter loves to add lemon juice to watch it turn purple.

  • Cocomint Green

    

    A good mint tea. However, the chocolate is too subtle for my tastes. It does smell very strongly of mint chocolate, but the taste just doesn't follow.

  • Chestnut

    

    I did not like this one on its own merits. It smelled, and tasted, weird- kind of like dirt. It did get better with cherry whiskey added.

  • Vanilla Oolong

    

    The aroma was that of a good quality marshmallow. Hot, the vanilla really came through. I did not care for it iced, though.

  • Honeybush Mango

    

    A nice mellow honeybush with obvious, but not overpowering mango flavor. Excellent with a touch of sugar.

  • Gingerbread

    

    A solid Meh. I got very little ginger, more of a sort of warm aftertaste than anything. It wasn't bad, just not gingerbready.

  • Spiced Green

    

    The tea is mild and the cloves are strong. The cinnamon and ginger are .ore of an aftertaste than a Ayer in the mix. Overall pretty good.

  • Raja Oolong Chai

    

    Cinnamon all day long. If you're here for the other spices you're going to be disappointed... but if you're here for the cinnamon you've come to the right place.

  • Candy Cane

    

    It was not awful with added milk and sugar, but I couldn't drink it without both. The mint and black tea do not match without the dairy buffer.

  • Genmai Cha

    

    With added sugar, it tastes like honey smacks cereal. It's good, and goes well with food. It paired well with beef and broccoli lo mien, and I could see myself just having it alone as well.

  • Pomegranate Grove

    

    My first experience with this tea was bad. Way too much spice and almost no pomegranate flavor. Well, either I had a bad bag or the formulas been changed... this is great! Much better balance and full of pomegranate goodness.

  • Peppermint

    

    Usually when I have mint tea I make it with my home grown organic mint, picked fresh from the garden when I can or dried in the winter. This is a good substitute for when that's not available.

  • Pu-erh Chorange

    

    To be fair, I didn't read about the hot rinse until after I'd steeped my tea. I added sugar and a touch of milk. However, it didn't taste bad. I got a very subtle chocolate and "fruit" taste I would not have identified as orange if I hadn't known it. It's not bad, just not a favorite.

  • Golden Flower

    

    I liked it, felt it would go well with an Asian meal or on it's own, but not with an afternoon tea with sweets and sandwiches.

  • Elderberry Wine

    

    A good berry tisane, perfect with a touch of added sugar. I must admit I've never had an elderberry, so I can only assume the taste is correct... but I do like it.

  • Fiery Cinnamon Spice

    

    Very heavily cinnamon. I don't get any of the orange or clove, just cinnamon. If that's what you're in the market for get it. If you want something a little more complex, this isn't it.

  • Thai Tea

    

    It's ok. I love all the flavors separately, and any 2 are great. All three together is a bit much.

  • Scorpio

    

    A great tea. High quality and delicious, deep but not too desserty. The mango addition allows it to retain an exotic sense even in the face of chocolate.

  • Earl Grey Moonlight

    

    Decent, but not my favorite. I think it's too heavy on the bergamot, but it's really a personal taste question. The tea quality is good.

  • EARL GREY

    

    Meh. I like Earl Grey, but this one seems off to me. It doesn't drink smooth.

  • Jolly Roger

    

    Makes a great hot toddy! I added caramel whiskey to a hot cup and was set for the night. 10/10 will definitely buy again.

  • Brigadoon Breakfast

    

    I expected more from a once-every-four-years blend. It was okay; I was not blown away, and am not planning to buy more when it's available.

  • White Blueberry

    

    This a good, light tea hot and is a good sweet tea with adding little sugar. I like this one better cold than hot, though, which is unusual for me and probably due to the lightness. The flavor just seems to come through better.

  • Sleepytime Classic

    

    A classic. If you need a relaxing minty tea that you can pick up literally anywhere and make without the fuss of loose leaf, this is your tea. A nice balance of quality and ease.

  • Blood Orange

    

    I was expecting more orange in my orange tea. It's not bad, just a bit weak for my tastes.

  • Earl Grey Bella Luna

    

    This is my favorite tea for everyday sipping. The coconut adds a mellow flavor to the earl grey, which makes for a relaxing cup.

  • CONSTANT COMMENT BLACK TEA BAGS

    

    Years ago, this was the first tea I tried that I actually liked. The orange and spice pair in a calming way that's not too overwhelming. A solid choice for a lower price tea.
