"How would you like a nice Hawaiian punch?"
or
"How did you like the taste of Shasta Black Cherry Soda as a kid?"

This is the closest thing I've tasted to that in an herbal tea. If you have children and want to introduce them to caffeine-free herbal teas harmlessly, or get them off high-calorie sugared fruit drin...

Sleepytime® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Chamomile Blend – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 8th, 2016

Similarly to Brytta (below) I much prefer peppermint to spearmint; yet the balance with lemongrass and chamomile seems to work here. This isn't the Ambien of tea and won't knock you out, but instead, is a smooth, easy, comfortable tea to slow-pour down one's gullet a couple hours before bedtime. A friend with similar...

Fenchel from Teekanne

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 15th, 2016

Fennel is an herb that tastes loosely similar to star anise, but not as strong; it reminds me of a blend of star anise and linden flowers. Therefore, folks who like the licorice flavor but not as intense (and with a slight floral veneer) will enjoy this product. While I'm not madly over heels in love with the flavor,...

Organic Fairtrade Rooibos & Honeybush Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: South Africa

62 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

I've tried only a couple of Rooibos teas--one whilst traveling through Austria last year (can't recall the brand but it was a little muddy-tasting), and this one that appears fairly new.

Rooibos is an earthy, woody, somewhat grassy flavor that either grows on you or not. It has on me after initially not being ver...

Star Anise Tea (Chinese) from Badia

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

Having lived in Miami for a few years, I'm quite familiar with and mostly a big fan of this brand of spices. They do justice to their spice line with this tea. I've only tried a few anise teas, but theirs is the richest, by far. Every time I go, I bring some back; fortunately it's available commonly in the local cha...

Tension Tamer® from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

93 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

Tension Tamer is top notch, my favorite CS tea alongside Candy Cane Lane (but for different reasons). The flavor is pleasantly strong and spicy, yet still mellow and relaxing, very befitting its advertised role as a comfort food of the tea world. This is best consumed in front of a fireplace or under a blanket on a c...

Wild Sweet Orange from Tazo Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

I agree with the other reviewers here who state that the flavor doesn't pack the potency the aroma implies. I could sniff the packaging of this tea all day long; the scent is almost intoxicating. It smells like one of the old descriptions Tazo used to use on the side of the boxes, to the effect of, "biting into a fres...
