Kama Sutra Chai from Shanti Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
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

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: China

30 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5

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.

Caramel Latte from Shanti Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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 ...

Citrus Punch from Shanti Tea

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
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.

Merry Berry from Shanti Tea

Style: Fruit Rooibos – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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.

Kapha Balance - Ayurvedic Tea from Shanti Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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.

Los Andes from Shanti Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Guatemala

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
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.
