Dec. 3rd, 2018

I'm not super crazy about the aroma of this tea, it has that weird turmeric smell. But the smell is very mild and it's really the taste that matters most. I've never had a turmeric tea before, but this one tastes pretty good to me. It is rich and smooth and has a unique flavor from the turmeric. If you've had turmeric ...

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 3rd, 2018

The first thing I notice about this tea is how very strongly it smells like cinnamon, I really like that smell. The dominating taste is definitely the cinnamon and also the cardamom. This is a very intense herbal tea and I wouldn't drink it for relaxation, but I would definitely drink it other times like in the morning...

Dec. 3rd, 2018

I really love this tea! It does actually kind of smell like caramel like the name would suggest, it is a pleasant aroma and no too strong. This tea is very smooth and thick-bodied and relaxing to drink. It seems pretty high quality and all the flavors in the tea work really nicely. It is neither bitter nor astringent w...

80 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 3rd, 2018

This is a pretty decent tea. It is very smooth and easy to drink because it has little bitterness and astringency. The mint and green tea go really well together. Normally I'm not so crazy about mint teas but this one mixed with green tea is really good. I get that nice mint flavor without it being too overwhelming. Th...

Throat Comfort® from Yogi Tea

45 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 2nd, 2018

The aroma smells strongly of licorice but it also has a musty smelling undertone, I really enjoy that! The first ingredient of this tea is licorice root which I normally really love in herbal teas because of its natural sweetness, but this one tastes kind of weird and and the sweetness of the licorice overpowers any ot...

Dec. 2nd, 2018

The aroma is very floral but it does not smell artificial like perfume or soap. It also smells somewhat musty but I actually really like that! The taste is amazing, it’s extremely smooth, there is no astringency or bitterness at all! This tea is very full bodied and thick and relaxing to drink. It tastes very floral ...

56 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 1st, 2018

This tea smells pretty good and fruity, it doesn’t smell artificial like some fruit teas do. Unfortunately the taste just isn’t doing it for me though. I wouldn’t say it’s terrible, it’s just a bit too sour for my taste and it also leaves a weird sensation in my throat after drinking it (sort of an astringent...

Dec. 1st, 2018

This tea has a mild roasty and vegetal aroma which I enjoy. The flavor is pretty good and also has a kind of roasted quality to it. I enjoy this green tea because it is very smooth and is definitely less astringent than many other green teas I’ve had. It still does have a slight astringent aftertaste in my throat but...

Dec. 1st, 2018

The first thing I notice about this tea is how fruity it smells! It smells like cherrys in specific, true to its name. I enjoy the aroma and wasn’t expecting it to smell that strong! This tea is also extremely flavorful and a bit sour because of the cherry, I really like that. It is also really smooth and not astring...

I really enjoy this tea a lot! It’s super relaxing and I feel good when I drink it. This tea is not astringent or bitter at all which I like! I love the simple herbal flavor along with the gentle floral taste. Normally I’m not crazy about floral tasting teas but this one is done really well and I actually like it! ...

Nov. 29th, 2018

I really enjoy the strong peppermint smell of this tea! It tastes decent but it's a bit too bitter for my taste unfortunately. People who are less sensitive to bitter tastes may find it just fine though! One thing I do really like though is the cooling sensation the mint gives me in my throat. This may be a good tea to...

Nov. 29th, 2018

The thing that really stands out to me is how good this tea smells! It smells a bit sweet and like cinnamon which I really enjoy. The flavor is good at first but it leaves a slightly bitter and astringent aftertaste. I think the bitterness may be from the cardamom in the tea. Overall this is a decent cup of tea and it ...

Organic English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 29th, 2018

For an English breakfast tea I think this one is pretty good! I’m picky about black teas in general because I don’t like when they are too astringent or bitter. This tea isn’t too astringent at all though! However it was a little bitter, but overall it tasted pretty decent. The aroma is good and mild and smells l...

I really like this tea so much! I enjoy licorice teas in general for their natural sweetness and this one in particular is pretty strong which I like. I know some people wouldn’t like it because of how sweet it is, so this definitely isn’t for everyone. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth normally but there...

I really enjoy this tea, I like this particular blend of herbs! It’s actually pretty sweet even though it doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners or sugars, which is a big plus for me. Even though it has very strong herbs like ginger and mint, it doesn’t taste too overwhelming at all. It’s actually very soothing...

Nov. 28th, 2018

I don't hate this tea but I really don't like it either. It costs 24 cents per cup and I can have much better black tea for cheaper than that so it's not worth it for me. The aroma is very faint and just smells like black tea. This tea tastes smooth but its also kind of plain. The aftertaste kind of tastes like paper t...

Nov. 28th, 2018

This isn't the best chai I've had but it's tolerable and if someone made it for me I would drink it again. I had mine without milk but I have a feeling it would be better with milk. On the plus side it's a fairly easy to find and it's affordable, I saw it being sold for $3.29 for 20 teabags. If you're a bigger fan of c...

Nov. 27th, 2018

Smells very fruity but not in a very pleasant way, it kind of smells like grape cough syrup to me. I’m not a huge fan of the taste either, it’s pretty watery and leaves an artificial after taste in my mouth. It’s not astringent or bitter which is how I normally like my tea, but this tea is so bad that I wouldn't ...

This tea smells sort of roasted yet mild. It is smooth and not very astringent or bitter at all, which I love! The flavor is pretty mild though but maybe I could fix that if I steep it for longer. Overall this tea doesn’t wow me so much but it is still pretty nice and for how cheap it is it’s a really good option i...

I would drink this every morning, it's just so good. Pleasant but nondescript. Smooth tasting, medium body. This tea is not very astringent. I dislike astringent things. It's worth the price. Tastes just as good resteeped.

Dec. 19th, 2017

I don’t like chai teas as much normally but this one I do actually like, probably because it also has rooibos which is good! It smells strongly of nutmeg and I enjoy that. The flavor is really pleasant and reminds me of the holidays. I would definitely drink this again! The only reason I didn’t give this a higher s...

I really like herbal tea, which is why I rated this one pretty high. This herbal tea in particular was really good though, much better than celestial seasonings in my opinion. The flavor is very smooth and not astringent at all and it has a very cinnamon and sweet flavor. It says this tea has no sugar added, but it tas...

Dec. 9th, 2017

This tea tastes sort of bready and soapy at the same time, but in a good way. It's not too strong and not too astringent, which is good. It's a nice tea to have with bland foods because stronger foods would overpower the flavor of the tea. Overall this was a pretty decent tea, however, there are much cheaper tea that I...

This tea is very good for a typical black tea. At around 20 cents per cup, it is a pretty decent value. It is very thick bodied and strong and it's a great tea to start my morning off with! It is also really interesting because, although its very similar to an english breakfast tea, it's slightly smokier and has a grea...

This tea isn't super great, but it's definitely not the worst thing. The price is pretty good, $1.20 for a box of 20 bags. However, there are teas that are the same price but are much better quality.

The flavor was decent for the first couple of sips, it had a sort of floral taste. Quickly though, my mouth began to ...
