Cozy Chamomile® Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

Brewed per the instructions, it's bland and almost aroma-less. I brewed it for 10 minutes instead of 4 and it was alright. The aroma was still weak but it tasted pretty good. I'd never brew it as per the instructions, though.

Peach from Adagio Teas

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5

This is a fantastic iced tea that kept good flavor on rebrewing - when filling my pitcher I brew a quart with 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon, then use the same leaves on a second quart. It smells pleasantly peachy and not artificial at all, and it tastes sweet and a little bitter and astringent. A 3 oz bag has produced many...

Passion Filterbag from Tazo Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

Smelled like cinnamon, but didn't taste spicy at all - it was mostly tart, which I am not a big fan of. I like fruity teas, but I prefer being able to tell what kind of fruit I'm tasting, not just sort of muddy random fruit flavor. I didn't toss any of what I bought, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Candy Apple Tea from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 7th, 2016

It smells fantastic, which gets you very excited to take a sip...but the flavor just isn't quite there at all. It tasted very smooth but not very strongly, and it was mostly sweet and a little bitter. I drank it straight, and tried it both hot and cold (it's pretty good on ice.)

I took to using a little more than I ...

Black Cherry Berry Herb Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 7th, 2016

This is my absolute favorite herbal iced tea. It doesn't have a very strong smell, but it's got a great, crisp, fruity taste that really does remind me of cherries - real ones, not artificial cherry flavoring. Given that cherries don't have much of a smell compared to other fruits that's probably to be expected. Fairly...

True Blueberry® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 7th, 2016

It smells very nice, like blueberries, but there's a weird note of orange. Flavorwise, it tastes like it's an orange tea, not a blueberry tea, and unfortunately I don't like oranges.

My family members who *do* like oranges all enjoyed it, and it was good mixed in with something less orange, but if you don't like or...

Peach Oolong (Peachy Oolong) from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 7th, 2016

As a big peach flavor fan, I was a bit disappointed how weak the peachy flavor was - not nearly as strong as their black peach tea. It smells deliciously peachy but the flavor just isn't quite there. It still tastes good, but if you really want that fruit flavor (and I do!) I'd suggest something else.

Cinnamon Apple Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 7th, 2016

My doc always keeps this tea stocked, and I always drink a cup or two when I'm in the waiting room (unfortunately frequently.) It's very sweet tasting and doesn't really require sugar, but it doesn't have much spice or really any other flavor at all. It's closer to a watered down juice blend than tea. Good enough to dr...
