Los Andes from Shanti Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Guatemala

83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 9th, 2016

I believe it is actually a CTC although it is a very good tasting tea, warm and pleasant and very good without milk. Similar to smooth premium Ceylon in taste

Sep. 18th, 2014

This was my first rose petal tea, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

The dried flower petals had a nice perfume scent, which I enjoyed because I'm really big on flowery teas. I can imagine that the floral scent wouldn't be for everyone.

The taste was smooth, mild, and pleasant. Nothing bitter about it.

Chocolate Strawberry Mocha from Shanti Tea

I used to drink tons of coffee, the by product of working in a coffee shop as a teenager. I got a bit sick of it, but still love the smell and taste of it on occasion.

The aroma is delightful, a mellow blend of tea mixed with rich chocolate and coffee and a sweet yet slightly tangy kick of strawberry. The smell rem...

Passionfruit Black from Shanti Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: India

Jul. 3rd, 2013

I usually don't care for passionfruit - but I had a Shanti Iced Passionfruit Black tea - and man, was it good. Granted, it was the middle or summer - so this was a fruity, refreshing sip.
I don't think this tea is discontinued - as I just had it.

May. 22nd, 2013

This is a preliminary rating based on the smell alone - I just got a sample of this loose-leaf tea and can't wait to brew some up. I bet it'd be great in the winter as you can smell a sweet maple scent and as Sylvia mentioned a faint whisper of smoky wood. It looks appealing visually as well. I will update this revi...

Kama Sutra Chai from Shanti Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 24th, 2013

The dry leaf smells a bit like potpourri, and a bit like a regular Masala chai.

Upon brewing, this tea is quite peppery and almost prickly on the palate. The brewed cup is not as floral-smelling as the leaf. Aroma is complex and hard to describe: I definitely notice the clove, but the other aromas seem to blend to...

Jan. 11th, 2013

This tea smells kind of like mulled cider. The flavor is a little weird with the flowers. I don't usually like floral teas. It took 8 minutes for me to brew it strong enough. I added cream and sugar.

Warm Apple Cider from Shanti Tea

Jan. 10th, 2013

The aroma is almost repulsive to me, but I don't like high-quality green teas, and this tea has a base of green oolong. The flavor is subtle. It's not as strong as I would like it, but the ginger stands out, and I don't like that. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has an interesting aroma. It smells kind of like burning wood. It's a little weird. I like the flavor, though. It's smooth. I didn't know this was oolong when I tried it, and I was surprised to find out. It's very dark. I added cream and sugar.

Aug. 17th, 2012

This tea smells like heaven on a bun, minus the bun (as my friend would say). It has a rich, smoky, roasty, sweet caramel-flavored aroma, which I, as a coffee and sweets lover, am drawn to. So I was a bit disappointed by the taste, but it was still very good. I love caramel-flavored teas, but I can't taste the caramel ...

Aug. 12th, 2012

This tea tastes kind of weird, but maybe that's because I added cream and sugar. I can't get it to brew strong enough for my taste, and I think the oolong is overpowered by the orange flavor. I thought it smelled pretty good when the leaves were brewing, though. It smelled kind of like Apple Jacks.

Aug. 12th, 2012

This tea is actually really good. It's not was I was expecting, because it has a rooibos base, and I don't like rooibos, but the berry flavor overpowers it. It smells kind of like candy. I added cream and sugar, and it actually blends really well with the cream, which also surprised me.

I've been drinking this tea for the past two days, and really like it. It has a nice, light, spicy aroma, and a equally light and pleasant flavor. I thought this tea was refreshing and agree that it feels uplifting as well. I will definitely be drinking this again!

Jun. 4th, 2012

This tea has a nice aroma. It tastes kind of like chai rooibos. I like the blend of spices, but don't like the dominant flavor of rooibos. I'm a fan of chai, but I don't like rooibos in general. I added cream and sugar.

Jun. 1st, 2012

I love rose petals, both for brewing as an herbal tea on their own, and for blending with both green and black teas. Brewed on their own they produce a surprisingly strong cup with a reddish color, pleasing rose aroma, and strong flavor. The aroma is very different from most of the light, airy floral aromas, and more...

Jun. 1st, 2012

This tea is pretty good. The aroma is rich, but the flavor is somewhat weak. When I brewed it longer, it tasted a bit bitter. But other than that, the flavor is really good. Maybe if I had some more I could experiment more with brewing times and get it to taste better. I added cream and sugar.

May. 30th, 2012

I am very skeptical of flavored teas in general, but this is a flavored tea done well. It is not only completely unlike any orange-flavored tea I have tried up until this point, but it was impressive.

The base tea shows a large-leafed, dark oolong, and the aroma is of both tea and orange.

Upon brewing, there is ...

May. 23rd, 2012

Aroma of the dry leaf is like a masala chai, heavy on the cardamom, but with perhaps a more strong suggestion of dried herbs, like an herb garden.

The brewed cup, red in color, smells much less like a typical masala chai. The rooibos is strongly evident, and there's a pretty strong spicy quality, I think from the g...

May. 10th, 2012

This is the green leaf, or Rama Tulsi. I prefer the red-leaf, or Krishna tulsi, but this is actually my favorite example of the green-leafed variety that I've tried.

I find green tulsi can sometimes have a metallic quality, and this quality is thankfully greatly diminished in this sample. This tulsi is smoother an...

I have been curious about this tea for some time, and I had no clue what to expect, as it is the first tea I have ever tried which was grown in the Americas.

Broken leaf (CTC) and infuses quickly, but does not become bitter if steeped for a long time. Shanti Tea recommends a 2 minute infusion without milk but I thi...

Making the tea, the cup of tea is much darker green than I have seen matcha get. It is a sweet smelling tea.

The tea is not as bitter as some matchas that I have had. The Acai berry that has been added to the tea makes it a little sweeter.The tea is sweeter sort of with a tangy after taste to it. It doesn’t t...

Dec. 15th, 2010

The liqueur is a deep amber tone. There are a couple of leaves left in the cup. There is a smell of cooked grass, sort of like leeks, and a soft hint of caramel in the smell.

This doesn’t seem to be a super complex set of tones to this tea. That doesn’t make this a bad tea though, it is just a sort of basic tea....

The liqueur is a light amber color, almost looking like it has no flavoring to it. It smells floral and fruity. The flower smells like rose but it tastes like jasmine. There is a lightly earthen tone at the back of the smell that is similar to many black darjeelings.

The taste is started off with a overtone of jasmi...

The liqueur is a light golden color. It smells soft and subtly sweet. There is a hint of being fermented a little bit extra long. The smells are subtle overall and not very strong. The taste is a lot like the smell but stronger. The first thing I notice is that it is subtly sweet riding in the middle tone while the dee...
