Good yet mild smell, bergamot smells light...bold flavor that dissipates quickly, slightly bitter taste but not bad, nothing special though...just glad it's bold!

nice raspberry smell of decent strength, taste is slightly musty, although this teabag is fairly old....taste is medium strength and with a tinge of lemony bitterness at the end...I really like to try this again with a newer bag...cool red color to this tea though!

Nice warm smell with a twinge of spice...very light and soothing, taste is very middle of the road...mild, slight bitter green tea taste, good finish that is very slightly spiced...much more "vegetable-ly" and bitter when cools and bag stays in ...only complaint is that it is boring

normal very mild black tea smell, taste is very smooth black tea, not very flavorful...(steeping longer now)...teabag seems tapped as the longer steeping doesn't seem to do anything...too mild and bland...nothing fun here...not worth paying for..update: when the tea cools it just tastes like a wet teabag... :(

5 minute steep for first cup, Smells smoky and good! Amanda's rating of the smell is pretty descriptive of it too! Great strength to this tea...steeped just right...a touch of bitterness off the bat, then I taste the sweetness on the end...the opposite of what others tasted! Not sure about the value as it was a gift......

smell is good with hint of lavender...wish it came out stronger though...2 minute steep time for first cup...flavor is VERY light, but seems like it would be good if stronger. I agree with Alex that this tea is better colder rather than hotter...I think the flavor comes out more...or it's the tastebuds. UPDATE: (REST O...

steeped it way too long by accident, don't know if that helped or hurt...a good tea...perhaps the best of the camomile's I've had...not usually my type. Straightforward no frills though. Strength of flavor is just right

smell is strong in the orange and cinnamon department, reminds me of fall....taste is less than expected...the boldness is a little light (5 minute steep), the flavor is good and as expected but I wish it came out a little stronger

good smooth and mellow smell...bergamot is soothing with this one! Just a bit too subtle of a smell though. Flavor is bold, but taste is a bit too bitter...I've probably had better earl grey's out there...

long (6 minute) infusion, smell is lightly fruity...taste isn't quite as I would have expected...hard to place the taste, but something is there that is surprising and isn't quite right...just for a second...orange peel? decent, but nothing great

black tea with equal parts tropical fruit smell...brewed on the higher end of both leaves and time brewed...taste is more bitter than I was expecting...and less fruity, but fuller flavor. Mostly black tea taste here, with a hint of fruit. (NEXT TIME BREW 5 MINUTES INSTEAD OF 6?)

5 minute (long end) steep...smell is mostly vegetal with hint of fruit like raspberry...guess that's the peach...as one who favors stronger teas this isn't my "cup of tea"...too light...flavor itself isn't bad..more vegetal than peachy though.....just needs boldness!!
