Picture of Orange Grapefruit Herb Blend

Orange Grapefruit Herb Blend from Trader Leaf

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 10th, 2015

According to my notes (and my nose, since I just took a refresher sniff) this tea is a sweet citrus and eucalyptus explosion! Very sweet and refreshing notes of different citrus notes (lemon, orange, and grapefruit reign supreme) and a very cleansing note of eucalyptus. It opens the nose and lungs and allows for sneak...

Himalayan Black Tartary Buckwheat Tea- Soba Tea From Daliangshan from Teasenz

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 8th, 2015

I am such a sucker for roasted and grainy smelling/tasting things, so this is going to be right up my alley. The aroma is is like a big bowl of cereal without the milk, like sweet roasted grain, baking bread, and honey. In fact, it honestly reminds me of Honey Nut Cheerios, a grain heavy aroma, but with a distinct hone...

Jubilee from Tea Leaf Co

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 7th, 2015

The aroma of this blend is a mixture of flowers, fruit, and Green Rooibos, which smells and tastes very different from its red counterpart, it has a sweet honey and straw aroma, with just a tiny hint of grass. The rose aroma blends well with the mango and citrus, giving the tea a tropical feel.

I was pleasantly surp...

Rooibos from Adagio Teas

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 3rd, 2015

The aroma of the little red leaves is sweet and woody, exactly the way I expect Rooibos to smell! I do not drink it unblended nearly enough, which is tragic because I love the stuff. There are also notes of caramel, a touch of honey, the tiniest hint of pepper and much to my surprise and ending hint of pie crust, which...

I am very much so not an expert on Chakras, having only dabbled in the past. I do know that the aroma of this tea is intense, I could smell the lavender from outside of the box it was shipped in, so that was a first! After I waft through what feels like a cloud of purple and give the teabag a sniff, I do notice a hint ...

Feb. 2nd, 2015

Another tea I was a bit apprehensive about, I love lemongrass in food and I can kinda tolerate it in tea blends when I feel it belongs (no idea, but for a while it seemed that lemongrass was in everything, drove me crazy) but just straight lemongrass as a tea, never had it! Giving the bag a sniff I was pleased, I love ...

Wellness Blend from The Persimmon Tree

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 25th, 2014

The aroma, well, with all these herbs in it is expectantly herbaceous, reminding me of a plethora of dried herbs hanging from an herb show. Of course there are floral notes, a touch of peppery warmth, and a tiny bit of celery. It reminds me a little of my mom's kitchen during winter, her drying kitchen herbs, a pot of ...

Rooibos Roasted Corn from Tea Horse Road

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 4th, 2014

The aroma is a blend of sweet woody, caramel notes and roasted, nutty, popcorn notes. They blend together really well, vaguely reminding me of caramel corn, one of my favorite autumn snacks, not sure why but I crave it this time of year.

Time for tasting! I am actually drinking this right now too, even though the no...

C of Tranquility from Good Life Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 25th, 2014

The aroma is very berry filled, like dried cherries, elderberries, and blueberries. It has a sweet and tart quality with a nice citrus burst at the finish. The tartness is more of a fruity tartness rather than a hibiscus tartness.

The taste starts out with a punch of slightly metallic tartness (hibiscus always tas...

Fellini's Folly from SerendipiTea

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 13th, 2014

The aroma is quite strong, a potent chill of mint, sweet woodiness, a touch of licorice, a touch of anise, and a finish of raisins. It manages to be cooling and warming at the same time, an interesting contradiction.

Tasting this tea is quite interesting! It starts off with a cooling sensation from the mint that coo...

Honeybush Herbal from Simple Loose Leaf

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 7th, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is woody, sweet, and a little bit sour. It reminds me a bit of sour cherries and melons with a touch of dried bamboo wood and hay

The taste is woody and caramel sweet at first, this fades to a nice dried fruit sourness, again the idea of sour cherries pops to my mind. Honeybush is very mu...

Aug. 2nd, 2014

he aroma is very sweet and super fruity, I love all the different fruits and can certainly detect the strawberries, cherries and apples. There is a tartness from the fruit (and hibiscus flowers) as well but it is not as strong as the sweet. The aroma vaguely reminds me of a fruity trail mix and is making me kinda hungr...

The aroma of the dry leaves is pretty interesting, a blend of herbaceous and spice notes with a touch of sweet vanilla, nutty coconut, woody honeybush, and a hint of fruity tartness at the finish. It is quite unlike any blend I have sniffed before, I especially like how well the anise and coconut compliment each other...

Jul. 22nd, 2014

The aroma is a great blend of tropical fruit and apricot, citrus, a touch of floral, and a tiny hint of woodiness and bamboo. It certainly lives up to its name as of sniffing the dry leaves, which is always a good sign.

Tasting time! The first sip starts off a little dry and mild then all of a sudden a tropical frui...

It blends the aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, spices, tart, and woodiness in a really interesting blend. The strongest notes were wood, citrus, and pepper, usually I would not think to put them together but the aroma really works.

And now for the real test, how does this unusual blend of ingredients taste? Interest...

The aroma of this cake is intensely sweet! There are strong notes of cake batter, vanilla, and a hint of cocoa. Under this explosion of cake and sweetness is a really strong note of woodiness from the Rooibos and Honeybush, it is almost like sitting at a table and having a slice of cake with ice cream and sitting next ...

The aroma is quite minty and also quite lemony. It is very refreshing and wakes me up...hmmm. There are also mild straw and herbaceous notes at the finish.

Tasting this tea was a fun experience. First the sip is sweet, lemony, and warm and then BOOM! Cooling mint that flows through my mouth, esophagus, and into my s...

The aroma of this tea is very typical of a Rooibos, it is woody, sweet, a bit sharp, and a rich caramel sweetness. Rooibos has a very acquired aroma I feel, there are times I crave its woody sweetness, other times it gives me a headache.

Not surprisingly, it tastes yummy! The taste is woody and rich with strong note...

May. 9th, 2014

The aroma is a strange yet not unpleasant blend of strawflowers, dill weed, cocoa, fresh flowers, caramel, and raw honey. It is really complex, I found myself sniffing the flowers for quite a while just trying to pick out all the notes and see how they blend together.

This tea is surprisingly rich for a floral tea, ...

he aroma of this tea is a little strange, mixing roses, ginger, sage, mint, and a sharp mix of citrus and berry note. It is a blend of floral, fruity, and herbal, it is savory and sweet. When I say the aroma is odd, it is not unpleasant, just an unexpected combination.

The first thing I notice on my initial sip is t...

The aroma is a sweet blend of coconut, chocolate, bananas and woody rooibos, all with an undertone of spices. The brewed tea is very sweet and creamy, reminding me of icecream with chai spices.

The taste is nothing short of a decadent dessert. A blend of bananas, chai spices, chocolate, and earthiness. It is a delic...

The aromas are mint, apple, and coconut, all three are very strong and fairly sweet. I do not find they blend well together. When brewed the aromas of those three are still very prominent with a slight hint of citrus.

The taste is odd, it is not bad but certainly not for me, I do not find that mint, coconut, and ap...

This tea smells exactly like Lime chiffon, I mean exactly. Blindfold me, put me in front of this tea and most likely I would ask for a fork and try to eat the leaves. Of course when I steep this tea the whole room ends up smelling like dessert.

The taste is exactly what it says on the tin, it tastes just like Lime C...

The aroma of the little leaves is very clean and reminiscent of standing in a hay field. I also notice hints of strawberry which was nice. Once brewed the aroma becomes much sweeter and takes on floral notes.

The taste is good! Not as sweet as the oxidized version but still sweet, no floral tastes but the fruit make...
