Echinacea Immune Support from Yogi Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 12th, 2011

I don't care for the overall flavor of echinacea itself, so to drink this tea for its flavor isn't my thing. I drink it for the immune health benefits that I truly believe in.

This tea works great at helping me fight off a cold. It also works really well for my hubby, who actually love the flavor of it!

Organic Red Tea - Harvest Berries from Good Earth Teas

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 12th, 2011

I didn't care for this tea, myself, though my husband really enjoys it. It is an odd flavor, though does have mild sweetness to it (naturally). It steeps into a full-bodied cup of tea, too.

The flavor of red tea is too masked by the berries, to me. It ends up with a flavor that's too "earthy" for me. I don't car...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 2nd, 2011

I enjoy the tart yet mildly sweet flavor of this tea. Tastes like sun-ripened raspberries. Very real flavor, not fake or candy-ish.

Great springtime flavor for me. Refreshing even when hot.

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 1st, 2011

It smells great when steeping, like some kind of sweet blueberry dessert bursting with fresh, juicy, plump blueberries.

But it doesn't taste quite that good. There is only a moderate amount of blueberry flavor, but it still isn't bad.

This tea is refreshing, even when hot. An easy-to-drink beverage.

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 28th, 2011

The aroma of this tea is a sweet and tangy berry scent, reminding me of summer.

The flavor wasn't as bold as I would have expected, based on other Zinger varieties. It had an immature sweetness, as though it were missing something. There was a subtle tartness to it as well.

Then my next cup was brewed with less...

Feb. 28th, 2011

I'm not a fan of this tea, it doesn't do anything for me.

It has relaxing properties of chamomile, but I do not enjoy the flavor. Mint and chamomile aren't a combination I'd choose for myself, but then again, I don't like the flavor of plain chamomile.

It has an odd aroma to it, not really something that makes m...

I'm not a fan of the flavor of chamomile, it just ins't for me. But, paired with honey and vanilla flavors, and it is nearly divine.

The sweetness of the two flavors really tones down the chamomile and turns it all into a relaxing cup of tea that is nicely sweet and velvety in mouthfeel.

It is great on a cool ni...

Holiday Tea - Gingerbread Spice from Celestial Seasonings

Feb. 28th, 2011

I'm not usually a fan of ginger flavors, but Gingerbread Spice is nice.

The aroma really reminds me of a cold winter day, warmed by a fire. It has a "homey" smell.

The flavor isn't overly spiced, which is why I like it. It is more of a sweet ginger flavor, as in gingerbread or cookies. I can taste a little cin...

Feb. 28th, 2011

If you want a richly sweet fruit tea, pick up a box of Black Cherry Berry.

The aroma is fantastic and so is the sweet flavor. It has a tart edge to it, but not overly so.

Being herbal, it is naturally caffeine free, so drinking it in the evening is an option for me.

I've not tried it iced, though I think it...

This tea smells amazing when brewing, like candy. Very inviting.

The flavor is also great, tastes wonderfully like fresh sweet and tart raspberries kissed by sunshine.

But I had to rate lower because they use artificial flavors. That really turns me off in teas.

I mainly drink this tea when my stomach is less than happy. The mint really helps settle my tummy during minor turmoil, and all without caffeine.

The flavor isn't something I go nuts about. It is very strongly a mint flavor, of both peppermint and spearmint. It is refreshing, it is not sweet.

Feb. 28th, 2011

This was a tea my mom loved. It smells great when brewing, makes my mouth water.

It is quite sweet, all by its lonesome. It has a lively fruit flavor (hence the "pizzazz").

There isn't any complexity to this tea, really. It has a simple flavor, but yet bold. I like it.

Feb. 28th, 2011

I enjoy fruit-flavored green teas, to help balance out green tea's natural flavor which isn't something I usually enjoy alone.

Pomegranate goes well with green tea. It allows for the green tea to still have its own unique flavor, but without it being so assertive.

It has a lightly sweet flavor, enough to mellow ...

This was my first Republic of Tea experience. I was immediately drawn to their unbleached, tag-less round tea bags.

The aroma of this tea is strong, and smells like a dessert tea. It has a nutty scent along with the vanilla.

The tea has a smooth almond flavor, accented by sweet vanilla. It tastes so real, like...

This was one of my first honeybush tea encounters, and it was a pleasant one.

The aroma is warm and inviting, smelling sweetly and richly of apricots and peaches.

That aroma is carried on to the taste, and it has such a warming flavor. It is sweet and very delightful, with bold apricot and peach flavors.

This tea sure smells great when brewing! Unfortunately, I didn't care for the taste. I tasted more cloves than pumpkin, which was a big disappointment, as I do not like cloves.

My hubby, who loves the flavor of cloves, is the drinker of this tea. He enjoys it. He brews it for about ten minutes, he wants the stro...

At first, I really liked this tea. But now, I find the overall flavor to taste of less quality than other teas I have. Not sure why that is, but it just doesn't have the freshest tasting fruitiness to me. Maybe there is just too much of a blend, or the blended amounts aren't quite right.

I still drink it, it isn'...

I am a fan of grapefruits, so when I saw this tea, in my cart it went!

It has a nice aroma of green tea with subtle citrus scents. Not an overwhelming aroma.

The flavor is nice, though the green tea can be on the bitter side (though I don't mind that).

For being a hot tea, it is refreshing, and one that is ...

I simply love this tea, but it isn't for everyone.

The aroma is so lovely, and I would enjoy a candle scented like it! It is very tropical smelling.

The flavor is mostly pineapple and green tea, though the pineapple takes over most of the flavors. It is very sweet all by itself, and provides a unique flavor I r...

This isn't one of the teas I'd purchase again.

I like red tea, the overall flavor being nice and sweet. However, there is something about Celestial Seasonings red tea with pomegranate that just doesn't satisfy.

It has a bad aroma, kind of like rotten fruit, which is a bad way to start.

This is a nice, lightly sweet green tea. Some may want to add sugar to sweeten it more, but I find it to be nice as is.

It has a good smoothness to it, and no bitterness from the green tea.

Tasting both green tea and the pomegranate, it blended well to create a subtly sweet tea that was refreshing.

If you want a really smooth green tea, try this one. The honey really mellows out the green tea, and provides a soothing cup to drink.

The scent while brewing is a nice, sweet honey scent, followed by tangy green tea. It really enticed me to drink it!

For those who don't like green tea because of the harsher ...

This tea has a great blend of flavors, without bitterness. The green tea flavor is there, but subtly. The orange and passion fruit adds a little fruity sweetness, and the Jasmine balances it all out into a very mellow tea.

I was unsure how much I'd really like it, but I loved it the first cup I had.

Red tea has a unique and sweet flavor by itself, but combine it with vanilla and it is quite enhanced. Celestial Seasonings did a fine job with flavor balance, as the vanilla isn't too strong, but rather enhances the red tea's natural sweetness. It is a great breakfast tea (unless you desire caffeine) or as an evenin...

Country Peach Passion is a lovely, sweet and fruity tea. The flavor of peach is genuine, and provides a lovely experience. I enjoy a cup now and again when I want a sweeter tea without any caffeine. There is no need to add any sweeteners to it, either. A lovely and full peachy flavor with every sip. A delight!
