Love this tea! I don't like bitter teas, and this one has just enough sweetness to satisfy. Plus, the aroma is heavenly.

Very sweet, strongly flavored tea. You can definitely taste the fruit and it smells wonderful, but the flavor is actually a little too much for me. I have to be in the mood for it.

I am not a big green tea drinker to begin with, so I can't say for sure if my review is based on my general opinion of green teas or this tea in particular. It is certainly a drinkable tea, and when you first taste it it has a nice, full flavor. But there's a weird, almost soap-like aftertaste that I didn't like. De...

This is what tea should be. Simple, but aromatic, with a full body. The flavor is perfect, especially with a little milk: not too bitter or too sweet. An incredibly pleasant tea experience.

This tea has a wonderful, rosy aroma, but I would rather smell it than drink it. It leaves a bit of a soapy aftertaste, although I like the slightly sweet flavor it has while it is on the tongue.

This is a very mild tea, in a good way. The flavor is a little bland, but the aroma is amazing. It is a little like drinking flowers, but they're tasty flowers. Despite the fact that this tea is caffeinated, its effect is soothing - which could be good or bad, depending on how alert you need to be!

I was disapointed in this after having such great things to say about their English Breakfast Tea. It does have a nice full body, but its still on the bitter side. On the other hand, it would probably make a good base for iced tea mixed with fruit.

No matter how I make it or what I add, I can never seem to brighten the flavor of this tea. It manages to be both bland and bitter, but it does its job well on the days when you just need something hot to drink (and can't taste anything).

One of my all-time favorites. It has the full body of a good black tea, along with a sweeter flavor from the raspberries. This tea goes well with a light afternoon lunch or high tea.

An excellent chai. The flavor isn't so strong that it overwhelms you, but it still has that lovely spice taste. As with most chai, the smell is amazing, and this one delivers with an equally good flavor. I would particularly recommend this for anyone who is trying chai tea for the first time.

Simple, but as the title suggests, classic. It goes with almost anything and it's perfect for when you just want (black) tea without the extras
