Lemon Kandy from teakruthi

Feb. 8th, 2017

I really like the slightly lemon-citrus smell of the dry leaf. It got me quite excited about trying this one. The lemon flavor is fairly subtle in this, but it's well blended. It tastes like a quality version of what I've seen called Lady Gray tea before. Certainly I would prefer this over most Earl Gray's I've tried, ...

Do you like smooth, non-bitter, black tea? Do you like 7Up? Drop a tablespoon of 7Up (or Diet 7Up if you prefer your tea unsweetened), into a cup of smooth black tea, and you will do a reasonable approximation of this drink.

Basilur Lemon and Lime is not as strong as I'd like in flavor or aroma, but is an easygo...

Jul. 7th, 2016

This is a fantastic iced tea that kept good flavor on rebrewing - when filling my pitcher I brew a quart with 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon, then use the same leaves on a second quart. It smells pleasantly peachy and not artificial at all, and it tastes sweet and a little bitter and astringent. A 3 oz bag has produced many...

Oct. 5th, 2015

I've only had this as iced tea with sugar, not hot.

It took me a while to figure out how to prepare this to my taste. It was far too bitter when steeped cold overnight, and also when steeped in boiling water for 5 minutes (and then cooled). I found that steeping it in boiling water for around 4 minutes is best. To t...

I'm bummed about this one. I'm glad I bought a small sample size to try. The un brewed and brewed aromas are excellent, but the flavor is lacking.

This was brewed as directed. I used boiling water in the French press for 3 min. That seemed too short for a black tea, so I sampled and it was weak. Let it go to 4.5 mi...

This could be a new fave! The unbrewed tea aroma is amazeballs. Stepped for 5 min with boiling water, there was no bitterness here.

The cherry flavor is pleasantly noticeable, without being overpowering. The base black tea they use seems like the perfect showcase for the cherry flavor. I wish I had some of this...

Feb. 19th, 2014

Another tea bag purchased from Bell's Market in NE Philly. I was expecting to like this flavored tea a lot less than the blackcurrant, because I tend to like blackcurrant as a flavoring with tea much more than cherry.

This has an artificial-smelling cherry scent. It smells more like cherry syrup or an artificially...

Feb. 18th, 2014

I'm a huge fan of Twinings blackcurrant-flavored black tea, and it's the only example of such a tea that I've ever tried, so I was curious to try this one. Unfortunately, I don't like it as much.

The fruit flavoring is much stronger in this tea...it's so strong that walking out of the room, and coming back, I can s...

I am extremely picky when it comes to blueberry flavored tea, I want it to taste like ripe, sweet, blueberries and not tart unpleasant fruit. So many teas make the tart mistake but not this one! The aroma when opening the package is blueberries all the way, an added plus when you actually see blueberries in the leaves....

This just might be my new favorite from Adagio! Wonderfully floral and fruity with just a slight tart taste...just like guanabana fruit. It tastes good black or with a bit of sugar and milk.

Mango from Dilmah

Jun. 29th, 2012

First off, this tea smells phenomenal. Dilmah does a great job making a fruit tea that can also double as an air freshener. As for the taste, it makes a great iced tea. The mango is strong, the tea is strong, and they're fairly well balanced. Overall, if you like mango, then you'll like this.

Love this tea, and I drink it hot, with a little skim milk to cut the tannin. It has a wonderful aroma, and the flavour is fruity, but not sweet. It truly tastes of peach, which is a perfect match with the ceylon tea flavour. I have also used Paddington's Peach and Pickwick peach tea, which are also good, but harder t...

Oct. 26th, 2010

Thanks to my friend Sparky for providing this one. I didn't know what to expect of this tea. Unlike many American fruit-flavored teas, this tea is very subtle; the fruitiness is not overdone and blends well with the base tea. The base tea is quite weak for a Ceylon, but is also smooth. The fruitiness has a little d...

This tea is so good that I asked the ratetea.net guys to add it to their database!

It's a wonderful black tea (So, you get a pretty good caffeine hit from it.) that is made even better with just the right amount of apricot flavoring. The apricot flavoring is strong enough so that it doesn't disappear behind the Ceyl...

I don't know if I have ever actually eaten a currant, but none the less I purchased some of this tea because it sounded interesting. I was so surprised at the delicious flavor that I bought a bigger tin and shared with my friends. Very good 'berry' tea, brews up with that traditional berry aroma.
