This tea smells really like marshmallows. And caramel, but the marshmallow is more prominent. It tastes like dessert in a mug.

It was really good with 52 Teas’ pumpkin pie.

The aroma reminds me of rum cake. It does taste like caramel, and rum at first. Then I get more of a butterscotch flavour.

I like it, but I feel it needs something.

The aroma is nice, cloves and citrus sugar.

It sure looks pretty in my mug. The flavour is mostly sweet, and a little spicy. I feel like I should have this with cookies, and maybe chai.

It smells nicely like peppermint. I’m not a big fan of Adagio’s chocolate teas, but they go good with mint ones. I like the flavour of the candy cane tea, and it goes well with the other mint. I only tasted a little chocolate.

This smells great, like peppermint hot chocolate. The flavour is sweet minty chocolate. So far, I like this best from Teavana.

The aroma is kinda floral, and very orangey.

I used to really like this tea. It still has an orange flavour that I like, but I have other orange teas I prefer now.

Since I was still craving orange, I made this.

It smells nicely like orange and cloves. The flavour is like orange cream with spices. Mmm… oranges.

This is what happens when you want something orange, but forgot to order that black tea. And I also blame the amount of earl grey I’ve been drinking.

The tea mostly smells like the nut teas. I do so like the almond one. The flavour of the almond/ hazelnut is a nice sweet nuttiness. It would be better with vanilla, and more bergamot.

The aroma of hazelnut and vanilla is really nice. The flavour is sweet, nutty, and a little creamy. Really good with almond milk.

It smells nice dry. The flavour is a little brown sugar, and kinda like maple. I mostly taste the black tea. It was good with my fig oatmeal.
