Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: Oregon, United States63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5

Served in the Barnes & Noble Cafe in Newark, DE.Read Full Review
I am more partial to spearmint than peppermint, but I do enjoy peppermint from time to time. I picked this one mainly because it was one of the only two caffeine-free herbal options in the cafe, and I had already tried the other one.
This is a very good peppermint ...
Style: Black Tea – Region: South Carolina, United States83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

I was surprised at how different this tasted from the Charleston Breakfast blend. I like this one better, and ironically, I think it tastes more like a strong English breakfast tea, whereas the other blend tastes more like a plain, medium-bodied black tea.Read Full Review
The tea bag itself, which is a pyramid sachet filled with l...
Style: Black Tea – Region: South Carolina, United States77 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 21st, 2014
A light-bodied, smooth-flavored tea which was pleasant to drink.Read Full Review
Thank you to Nikki and Korbett for bringing this one to me from Charleston! I expected this to be more of a novelty, but it was surprisingly good quality!
Dry leaf is coarse and looks mechanically processed, but with bigger, more intact leaf pieces ...
Style: Tulsi / Holy Basil Tea – Region: United States of America90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 7th, 2014
A truly artisanal example of this herb. Tastes the closest to the fresh-harvested, home-grown example of this herb than any other one I have bought through a company. Astonishing complexity for Rama Tulsi.Read Full Review
I tried this some time ago, and I think it may not have been terribly fresh; this was a fresh batch which a f...
Style: Yaupon – Region: Texas, United States70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 1st, 2013
I love the smell of the dry leaf of this stuff...it has a potent and very pleasant aroma, similar to Yerba mate and Guayusa but unique. I find it much more pleasing!Read Full Review
Upon brewing, I don't like the taste quite as much. It tastes peppery, and the yerba-mate-like sweetness is more of a background flavor. The aroma i...
Style: Green Tea – Region: South Carolina, United States60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 30th, 2013
Wow, the first tea I ever sampled that was grown on U.S. soil! This was quite remarkable, as a curiosity. As a tea though, it was less interesting...it still seems that the main appeal of this tea is its novelty value.Read Full Review
Dark-colored leaf turns lighter upon brewing, and brews a rich, golden-colored up. Mellow and s...
Style: Yaupon – Region: Texas, United States80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 22nd, 2013
I finally got to try Yaupon, and this was the first one I tried! I was excited! I liked it, and I thought this batch was on par with some of the better examples of mate, and the only batch of guayusa that I've tried (the closest thing I have to compare it to).Read Full Review
Aroma of the dry leaf and brewed cup is vaguely remini...
Style: Lemon Balm – Region: United States of America70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 25th, 2013
I'm used to drinking iced herbal tea brewed from fresh lemon balm, or from my own dried batches of the herb, which I dry in whole-leaf form. This herb was pretty finely broken, and had a pretty different flavor and aroma.Read Full Review
The aroma is only very mildly lemony, much less so than my own batches of the herb, but it's v...
Style: Lemon Verbena – Region: Pennsylvania, United States100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 11th, 2011
Wow. And I thought I'd tried lemon verbena before. This is the first herbal tea that I've given a perfect rating, and only my second perfect rating.Read Full Review
This whole-leaf lemon verbena from the ANC Farm is better than anything I've tried fresh or dried. This is to lemon verbena what a high grade Jade Oolong or Tie Guan...
Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Hawaii, United States33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 10th, 2011
I received this teabag from a trade with a friend. I wasn't expecting that much, and honestly, it didn't deliver that much.Read Full Review
The one thing that this tea has going for it is that the flavoring is not overdone: it's subtle, particularly the orange--I almost notice the passionfruit flavoring a bit more.
The base tea...
