Feb. 21st, 2021

This is a wonderful classic cup of tea to enjoy in the mornings. It is smooth and easy to drink and it is thick bodied and flavorful without being too strong. The smell is like a normal tea. The value is what does it for me and why it is such a great tea to drink every morning, it is so cheap!

Really great tea! The aroma is fruity and floral and the taste is floral as well without tasting soapy at all. It is also very smooth and thick bodied with little astringency. Overall a very wonderful tea and I would buy it again.

Jan. 31st, 2021

This is a really great tea, it has a complex aroma and flavor. This type of tea is normally expensive but this one is cheaper yet the taste is perfect. And of course, as you all know my biggest issue with teas is ones that are too astringent, and this tea was not astringent at all so it's perfect!

The aroma of this tea wasn't very strong at all. The taste was smooth but there wasn't really much else interesting about it. Still, it's an easy to drink agreeable tea.

Jan. 28th, 2021

The aroma is just a classic bready black tea smell which is very nice however it lacks complexity and was very one-noted. The taste on the other hand was incredibly smooth and was one of the least astringent teas I've ever had (which is a good thing for me). The taste wasn't extremely complex but the flavors it did hav...

Jan. 25th, 2021

The first thing I notice about this tea is the very comforting aroma it has. It smells and tastes sort of like freshly baked bread. It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea while still being very flavorful and interesting. It's thick bodied and it is not astringent at all which I really like.

Jan. 3rd, 2019

This tea is really strange! It basically just tastes like sour lime water. It’s not bad but it’s definitely not my preference when it comes to herbal teas. This would be a good tea for someone who loves sour/limes or if you want to make and iced tea with sugar to be like limeade. It tastes good for what it is but u...

The main aroma I get from this tea is the lemongrass which I enjoy. The flavor of this tea is mainly the sour lemony flavor from the lemongrass along with the fresh taste from the peppermint. Overall this tea is very fresh and zingy but still mild and pleasant to drink. I normally am not crazy about peppermint teas but...

I'm not super crazy about the aroma of this tea, it has that weird turmeric smell. But the smell is very mild and it's really the taste that matters most. I've never had a turmeric tea before, but this one tastes pretty good to me. It is rich and smooth and has a unique flavor from the turmeric. If you've had turmeric ...

Dec. 3rd, 2018

The first thing I notice about this tea is how very strongly it smells like cinnamon, I really like that smell. The dominating taste is definitely the cinnamon and also the cardamom. This is a very intense herbal tea and I wouldn't drink it for relaxation, but I would definitely drink it other times like in the morning...

I really love this tea! It does actually kind of smell like caramel like the name would suggest, it is a pleasant aroma and no too strong. This tea is very smooth and thick-bodied and relaxing to drink. It seems pretty high quality and all the flavors in the tea work really nicely. It is neither bitter nor astringent w...

Dec. 3rd, 2018

This is a pretty decent tea. It is very smooth and easy to drink because it has little bitterness and astringency. The mint and green tea go really well together. Normally I'm not so crazy about mint teas but this one mixed with green tea is really good. I get that nice mint flavor without it being too overwhelming. Th...

Dec. 2nd, 2018

The aroma smells strongly of licorice but it also has a musty smelling undertone, I really enjoy that! The first ingredient of this tea is licorice root which I normally really love in herbal teas because of its natural sweetness, but this one tastes kind of weird and and the sweetness of the licorice overpowers any ot...

The aroma is very floral but it does not smell artificial like perfume or soap. It also smells somewhat musty but I actually really like that!

Dec. 1st, 2018

This tea smells pretty good and fruity, it doesn’t smell artificial like some fruit teas do. Unfortunately the taste just isn’t doing it for me though. I wouldn’t say it’s terrible, it’s just a bit too sour for my taste and it also leaves a weird sensation in my throat after drinking it (sort of an astringent...

Dec. 1st, 2018

This tea has a mild roasty and vegetal aroma which I enjoy. The flavor is pretty good and also has a kind of roasted quality to it. I enjoy this green tea because it is very smooth and is definitely less astringent than many other green teas I’ve had. It still does have a slight astringent aftertaste in my throat but...

The first thing I notice about this tea is how fruity it smells! It smells like cherrys in specific, true to its name. I enjoy the aroma and wasn’t expecting it to smell that strong! This tea is also extremely flavorful and a bit sour because of the cherry, I really like that. It is also really smooth and not astring...

I really enjoy the strong peppermint smell of this tea! It tastes decent but it's a bit too bitter for my taste unfortunately. People who are less sensitive to bitter tastes may find it just fine though! One thing I do really like though is the cooling sensation the mint gives me in my throat. This may be a good tea to...

The thing that really stands out to me is how good this tea smells! It smells a bit sweet and like cinnamon which I really enjoy. The flavor is good at first but it leaves a slightly bitter and astringent aftertaste. I think the bitterness may be from the cardamom in the tea. Overall this is a decent cup of tea and it ...

For an English breakfast tea I think this one is pretty good! I’m picky about black teas in general because I don’t like when they are too astringent or bitter. This tea isn’t too astringent at all though! However it was a little bitter, but overall it tasted pretty decent. The aroma is good and mild and smells l...

I really like this tea so much! I enjoy licorice teas in general for their natural sweetness and this one in particular is pretty strong which I like. I know some people wouldn’t like it because of how sweet it is, so this definitely isn’t for everyone. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth normally but there...

I really enjoy this tea, I like this particular blend of herbs! It’s actually pretty sweet even though it doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners or sugars, which is a big plus for me. Even though it has very strong herbs like ginger and mint, it doesn’t taste too overwhelming at all. It’s actually very soothing...

I don't hate this tea but I really don't like it either. It costs 24 cents per cup and I can have much better black tea for cheaper than that so it's not worth it for me. The aroma is very faint and just smells like black tea. This tea tastes smooth but its also kind of plain. The aftertaste kind of tastes like paper t...

This isn't the best chai I've had but it's tolerable and if someone made it for me I would drink it again. I had mine without milk but I have a feeling it would be better with milk. On the plus side it's a fairly easy to find and it's affordable, I saw it being sold for $3.29 for 20 teabags. If you're a bigger fan of c...
