Libra from Adagio Teas

Mar. 10th, 2017

This is a delicious tea. I got it as a free sample with an Adagio order I made some time ago. It's meant to be a "gift" tea, so unlike most of their teas the only size appears to be 4 ounces. That's annoying to me, as I enjoy the ability to get small samples from Adagio to try what I like first.

It comes in a cute ...

Jan. 17th, 2017

This is a solid herbal tea. I like the mix of flavors with the rooibos, though orange isn't my favorite flavor to have in a hot tea. For this reason, other flavor mixes work better for me. This is fruity, floral, sweet, and refreshing.

Comfort and Joy from Republic of Tea

Nov. 26th, 2016

The flavor is robust for the first cup and it infuses quickly. It's quite pleasant in holiday fashion, though not my favorite flavor. There is both spiciness and sweetness to it.

This is a lovely, robust tea with a pleasant sweetness. It would make a solid substitute for coffee lovers with a moderate sweet tooth. I could see myself drinking this very regularly.

Mmmmmm, now this is tea! If this was available loose leaf, it'd be perfect. The smell is delicious and the flavor is perfect -- a lovely balance between the spices and the rooibos. It's good on its own, but a cup of this is amazing with just a pinch or two of stevia added. It adds a smooth sweetness without overpowerin...

Oct. 19th, 2016

This solidly fruity, moderately robust tea isn't bitter or overly tart and has a pleasant juiciness. It's very inexpensive, so if you like fruit teas at all it's worth a shot. Like other Twinings tea bags, it infuses quickly but is good for only one cup. Overall, I like it, but it'd be much better if done loose leaf --...

I found packs of these in the house we moved into. The ginger is definitely most notable in the aroma before it's brewed, but I still taste it in the drink. It's flavor is strong but not potent, and very blended. No individual flavor really stands out. It has a rather creamy feel.

I don't know how effective probioti...

As someone very into fruity teas, I love this one. It's noticeably tart in a solidly pleasant way. Great when I'm in the mood for a strong caffeine free tea. If you like tropical herbal teas, this one is worth a shot.

Not bad for bagged Earl Grey. I added half and half, which mixed well. The flavor was solid without being bitter. Others commented that it IS better, so maybe the half and half I added helped with that?

Nov. 24th, 2015

This tea wasn't the worst, but it wasn't really for me. The aroma was better than the flavor. It's possible I over-steeped it, as it went a bit bitter in a distinctively green tea fashion. Basically, I like the idea of this tea better than its execution.

Oct. 10th, 2015

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.

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.

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.

It'd get a better rating if it was more affordable, but it's worth trying.

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.

In brief, it's great for what it is, but it'...

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. :-)

I had it iced from a coffee shop. Because it was cold I drank it very quickly. It was wonderfully refreshing.

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. :-)

EXCELLENT flavor combination. I love the fruitiness and the slight astringency (not bitterness) from the hibiscus. Both complement the rooibos very well. This sounded very good to me, so I'm glad that Rishi doesn't disappoint. If the ingredients list sounds good to you, you'll love it too.

Very good! The tumeric is the most notable, followed by ginger, then lemon. The flavors are balanced very well. Perfect when you want something invigoratingly spicy at the perfect level of intensity.

This is probably my favorite tea by Ahmad so far -- great for when you're in a sweet mood. This one smells exactly like those after dinner peppermints you can get free at many restaurants. If you don't add any sweetener, it can go a bit bitter. But if you add honey, then it also *tastes* exactly like those mints. Defin...

An excellent, high quality chai. The leaf smells so refreshing! I love the spice mixture.

I've tried this one a few different ways and have reached a few conclusions:

1) It's very nice even without milk and sugar.

2) If you want to make a latte, make sure the milk is heated at the same time as the water before...

I found an old container of this tea at a house I visited. Considering that it was probably quite old, it was surprisingly good.

The lemon flavor is present, smooth, and somewhat muted. There is a grassy undertone that I assume is the echinacea. And there is just a hint of licorice, which adds sweetness without bei...

Impressive tea. I'm finding that well-flavored decaf teas are something I really enjoy.

The vanilla is strong and high quality. The tea has undertones of raisin/muscatel that blend very well. Together, the sweetness is just right. I could detect no bitterness, yet the drink had plenty of body. Very enjoyable!

Very nice tea! Even the dry leaf is robustly fruity. Love the balance of fruitiness, tartness, and floral flavoring. The first cup had a nicer, redder color than the second, but the flavor was still good. There is no actual tea (or chamomile, rooibos, etc.) in this one; good for when you want flavor, but not caffeine. ...

Not bad, but not the best peach-flavored tea I've had. The chamomile isn't bitter and adds body, and the aroma is strongly of a sweet peach. There's also a creaminess of an unknown source, and it's not quite right. After I started drinking it, I had an odd feeling--like my nose and the top of my throat had become sligh...
