I actually really like this tea. The ginger gives it just the right kick when you're craving something with a tart spiciness. This herbal tea is pretty solid, in my opinion. Read Full Review

This tea is a great idea, but the execution needs to be better. Not that much flavor infused even in the first cup, but what I could taste and small was delightful and Christmasy. I bet I'd love the loose leaf version, but the bag version just isn't as amazing as it could be. *sigh*Read Full Review

Overpriced, but quite tasty. I'm enjoying this more than I do many flavored white teas. I can detect the tea without a problem, in contrast to the previous reviewers who felt the fruitiness to be overpowering. It held up to a second steeping well, though dust collected at the bottom of the cup.Read Full Review

This herbal tea is pretty good. I detect a little bitterness, but the vanilla helps. It's a pretty smooth drink, and it made two decent cups. People who really like chamomile will likely enjoy this one.Read Full Review

Tart, sweet, and fruity, this is a solid tea in my book. Its flavor is robust, so it's definitely for when you want something intense. I like it as a peppy breakfast tea when I'm not in the mood for a chai or other flavored black tea. Unfortunately, the tea bag didn't hold up to a second steep at all.Read Full Review

Though I can taste the chocolate, it's cardamom that comes through as the strongest flavor. I like cardamom, but it may be too much for some people. Weird, since i don't see that spice listed. Still, the aroma is spicy and pleasant. Read Full Review

A solid pumpkin spice tea. It has a distinct creaminess that I alternately like and then feel is a bit much or slightly off. It works best with an extra amount of tea.Read Full Review
It'd get a better rating if it was more affordable, but it's worth trying.

Pretty good! I got this at a Starbucks and had them add sugar and cream (well, half and half). It worked really well together and provided a nice caffeine jolt. If let steep too long it develops not so much a bitterness as a sharpness, so I'd keep it to only a couple of minutes. The second cup was also solid, though a...Read Full Review
Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 10/10
Aug. 4th, 2015
I really, really like this one. It's a great chai that works the chocolate flavoring just right. The cardamom is the most noticeable spice for the first couple cups, with the cinnamon showing up later. In both cases they were very smooth, not overwhelming or out of place.Read Full Review
This also works well whether you drink it pl...
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Jul. 14th, 2015
Not bad, but a bit astringent (almost bitter) to my taste. It has a refreshing quality, too. This tea reminds me a lot of the teas I drank while living in Japan (though it's a Chinese tea).Read Full Review
Certainly worth giving a try. I always like the quality of Rishi teas.
Style: Chamomile Tea – Region: Egypt77 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 7/10
Jul. 13th, 2015
Wow, well, either chamomile is growing on me, or I've finally learned how to brew it. This one has a very strong (but not bitter) flavor. I heated up the water for one minute in a microwave before adding the sachet, and (based on the reviews below) kept the steep time shorter than normal. Once it looked sufficiently go...Read Full Review

The smell of this tea is amazing, with a very strong almond vibe. The flavor picks up the black tea a bit too much for me, but I would imagine that big fans of black tea would find it well balanced. I don't detect a lot of vanilla, but it does seem to impart a sweetness. Read Full Review
In brief, it's great for what it is, but it'...

A nice green tea! It has a quality that is both vegetable and not-quite-baked. I'm not entirely sure how to describe this. It tastes similar to teas that I had while in Japan, and which I enjoyed very much there. It seems to have cause a slight tickle in my throat the way that some green teas can. I still need to figur...Read Full Review

A great herbal tea when you crave something tart. I love its strong fruitiness. The aroma has a floral accent as well. An excellent cup as far as I'm concerned. :-)Read Full Review
I had it iced from a coffee shop. Because it was cold I drank it very quickly. It was wonderfully refreshing.

The peach and ginger flavors in this tea are muted, but very smooth. I really like this one! A part of me wishes that the fruit and spice were stronger, but mostly I think this makes an excellent morning tea. The black tea is robust without being overpowering or bitter, and it holds up to multiple infusions well. Great...Read Full Review
Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: South Africa73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 8/10
Jun. 23rd, 2015
Zesty! Not as complex or interesting as it could be, but quite nice. Then lemon and rooibos flavors go well together. Pricier than what I would like, but a nicely refreshing blend with a nice aroma.Read Full Review

I've had a hard time finding a chamomile that I like, but this one I LOVE. Smooth, aromatic, perfectly balanced, soothing, and easy to brew. Instead of bitter, it tastes almost sweet in a delicately lemony way. This is chamomile perfection. :-)Read Full Review

Meh. To me, the orange flavor wasn't enough to compete with the bitter tea. I'm not particularly into in orange alone as a flavoring, anyway. I saw fannings at the bottom which I suspect were increasing the bitterness over time. Adding honey helped, but overall this tea simply isn't worth the price.Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 8/10
Jun. 9th, 2015
In my opinion, among the best offerings by Two Leaves Tea. This is a very well done Darjeeling. A bit pricy for bagged tea, but worth it when you're in the mood to splurge. It doesn't need a long steep, either. Mmmmmm. It's really hitting the spot tonight.Read Full Review
Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 7/10
Jun. 8th, 2015
Surprisingly good, though not a favorite. It has a relatively dark/roasted flavor from the tea (which isn't my favorite but was done well for what it is) and a lighter grapefruit flavor than I expected based on the smell of the dry leaf. The citrus flavoring really improved this style of oolong for me.Read Full Review
The second cu...
Style: Flavored Pu-erh – Region: Yunnan, China100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 10/10
Jun. 2nd, 2015
Ooooh, now this I like! This is my favorite flavored pu-erh by a lot. The tea is present, but not fishy. The fruity and nutty flavours blend perfectly with the chocolate bits, creating a complex and pleasing aroma and flavor. There is no bitterness, even after 5 minutes at boiling. Wonderful tea!Read Full Review
I also tried this t...

The aroma of the dry leaf is wonderful if intensely floral and fruity are what you like. Love it.Read Full Review
The white tea comes out much more stongly in the taste than in the scent. For my palate, the flavors blend pretty well -- though I'd be fine with even more blueberry flavor. Leaving the tea on a warmer improves it and d...

Excellent herbal tea! The flavor and aroma are both dominated by pineapple and coconut--both of which I like. It's delightfully fresh and sweet without sweeteners. I do wish that the flavor was more intense, so I'll try a higher concentration next time. It brews easily without going bitter, and so can brew as long as ...Read Full Review

Quite nice tea. The fruitiness is an accent with the tea flavor being dominant, but tgere is no bitterness. Overall, not bad. Read Full Review

Very interesting. This herbal tea has a smooth, herbaceous sweetness that reminds me of something I can't quite put my finger on. It's somewhere between chia seeds and, what, goji berries? It's good, though.Read Full Review
It also has undertones of non-bitter black tea, though it contains no tea.
It easily makes a second cup an...
