Monk's Mead from SerendipiTea

Style: Chamomile Blend – Region: Blend

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 30th, 2020

Here is a nice organic tisane, made predominantly with chamomile and bolstered with some fruits, rose hips, and hibiscus. So it tastes mostly of chamomile, but with a steely, acidic undertone. The aroma is fairly strong and floral. The price is a little high, but I guess that is due to the organic ingredients. This ...

Powerhouse from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 19th, 2020

This is an organic fruit and spice tisane that is made with apricot, apple, raspberry, orange peel, spearmint, hibiscus, turmeric, black pepper, and rosehips, plus some (organic) apple, raspberry, and orange flavoring. So quite a blend! It is not a typical tart and fruity hibiscus plus fruit flavor mix. The apricot ...

Golden Milk Mix from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 17th, 2020

This is an interesting blend of spices that is designed to be infused with milk. I make mine with non-dairy milk, and that may have affected the flavor some. The result is a very hot and spicy tea. Black pepper and chili pepper are the 2 main ingredients, bolstered by some ginger, coconut, cinnamon, and turmeric. I...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 14th, 2020

This is a simple but charming tisane, made entirely of organic ginger, lemongrass, and orange peel. It is naturally very sweet, and even a teaspoon of honey or sugar makes it taste very sugary. The lemongrass dominates, with the orange and ginger playing supporting roles. I have to take a couple of points off for th...

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 20th, 2019

Another in Serendipitea's line-up of flavorful fruit tisanes. This one is more expensive than the other 2 I tried, and I'm not sure why, since it follows the same pattern of ingredients (apple, hibiscus, rose hips, fruit, and natural flavor.) This has some orange peel and licorice root, which could account for the co...

Jan. 20th, 2019

A fine fruit tisane - organic and kosher, with a strong taste of raspberry that does not taste entirely natural (some natural flavoring is added.)

Very fruity and flavorful. Made from dried apple, hibiscus, rose hips, strawberry and natural strawberry flavoring. Thanks to my brother and his wife - this is the tea that turned me on to Serendipitea's flavorful, reasonably priced tisanes.

Aug. 28th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is quite unique, a blend of heady jasmine and earthy pu-erh. It is like a blend of blooming flowers and a garden after rain, it has that mineral and wet earth aroma. This tea smells like laying on one's back in a summer garden, a very interesting concept.

The taste if this tea is certainly inte...

Cocoa Power from SerendipiTea

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 18th, 2014

The aroma is a great blend of earthy pu-erh, woody sweet rooibos, vanilla sweetness, and loads of chocolate. It is a blend of sweet chocolate candy and rich cocoa powder, mixing the sweet and bittersweet aspects of chocolate. I am glad that it is sweet, but not cloyingly so.

This tea is a cup of cocoa decadence, tha...

Aug. 13th, 2014

The aroma is quite strong, a potent chill of mint, sweet woodiness, a touch of licorice, a touch of anise, and a finish of raisins. It manages to be cooling and warming at the same time, an interesting contradiction.

Tasting this tea is quite interesting! It starts off with a cooling sensation from the mint that coo...

Aug. 5th, 2014

The aroma is very floral and refreshing, with notes of heady roses and jasmine and a strong citrus note from the lemon myrtle. There are hints of honey sweetness and fresh vegetation as well.

Tasting the tea, it is quite delicate and refreshing, it blends the taste of fresh herbs and vegetation, floral notes and a b...

Aug. 1st, 2014

The aroma of this particular dessert tea is pretty rich, with strong notes of woody rooibos, creamy cocoa with almost a chocolate liqueur tinge to it, a bit of caramel, a bit of apple, and lastly a potent zing of oranges. It is very sweet and rich, but not too sweet, very much so the difference between a yummy slice of...

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 30th, 2014

The aroma of the little curled leaves is toasty and tasty! It is a blend of toasted sesame stems and tobacco with a touch of freshly broken green stems and a finish of coal. The aroma is more savory than sweet, reminding me of autumn fires at the end of a day.

This is a smooth tea in mouthfeel but slightly sharp in...

The aroma of the dry leaves is pretty interesting, a blend of herbaceous and spice notes with a touch of sweet vanilla, nutty coconut, woody honeybush, and a hint of fruity tartness at the finish. It is quite unlike any blend I have sniffed before, I especially like how well the anise and coconut compliment each other...

Rose Alongi from SerendipiTea

Style: Rose Green Tea – Region: China

93 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 18th, 2012

SerendipiTea’s Rose Alongi is a blend of organic Chinese green tea and rose petals. The tea leaves on their own smell grassy. After it’s brewed, the tea smells like fresh roses with a definite (and pleasant) undercurrent of green tea.

This is a smooth and slightly sweet tea. It’s light-bodied and leaves a wond...

Apr. 24th, 2012

I found this one interesting as it is a Jasmine-scented tea that also contains other ingredients and flavorings, but also because it contains two different base teas.

I tend not to like blends like this, but I found this one to be relatively well-executed. The overall character is mainly of Jasmine: the Jasmine is ...

Dec. 1st, 2011

Intensely fruity, very strong strawberry aroma. Tangy but not overwhelmingly so. This blend does contain hibiscus, presumably to make it sour and impart a red color, and I find some of these fruit blends overdo it on the hibiscus, but the amount in this one is good.

This is not my favorite style of herbal tea, but...

I tend not to like blends of herbs and tea including coconut, as coconut is generally not a smell or flavor I associate with tea drinking.

I found the different aromas in this blend to blend very well, however. It was creamy and sweet, yet somewhat balanced.

This is certainly not the sort of thing I would buy on...

This tea is awesome. It has a wonderful smoky flavor that blends perfectly with the vanilla and dominant clove flavor. It's the best chai I've tasted yet. I added cream and sugar.

Lightly smoky, like the base tea contains some Lapsang souchong...I initially notice the smoke more than the spice, but I also notice a lot of clove and ginger, and some cinnamon. I don't really notice the vanilla or cardamom--I always think you can add more cardamom as it's my favorite spice.

A very interesting tw...

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2011

The tea produces a nice golden cup. It has a strong astringent taste, and of course the muscatel that I've grown to love from Darjeelings. While it has the distinctive Darjeeling aroma, it does not have any delicate floral notes. the leaves are nice and large, and you don't need much to get a dark full bodied cup. The ...

Just the right amount of chocolate flavor. You wouldn't guess there was chocolate without reading the box though. Be careful not to over steep, gets bitter fast. Makes an amazing ice tea though.
