Smells like pinesol tastes like limeaid. Don’t really taste the black tea, but I know it’s there as I see the bag expand in size. At least its not bitter, and I think this would actually be a good candidate for grampa style brewing. Maybe throw in a bag of ginger(which typically disappoints as a solo cup). I am always looking for bags that taste good as they travel much easier than loose leaf, but I’m not sure I’d purchase this again. I’ll experiment with iced tea, but as hot tea the lime taste seems decent up front, then lingers into meh as a chemical afterthought. A small dollop of honey makes it a little less aftertasty and more limey.
It’s nice that there’s a best before date on the box as I’m not sure I’ll be drinking this all that fast.

Flavors: Lemon, Lime

I do not like mint teas, but this may be the blend that convinces me otherwise.

Usually I find that mint teas have little flavor and no real body, especially when they are considered a herbal infusion. No one should want that kind of mint water, it would be like drinking bland tea with a mouthful of toothpaste. Yuck!

Then this blend comes along. A pleasant and light spearmint nose, like smelling some Wrigley’s Doublemint gum fresh out of the wrapper. There is just enough body and bite on the finish to remind you it is a green tea with mint flavor.

A refreshing blend, that would probably do pretty well iced. So far the best bagged mint tea I have tried.

Flavors: Biting, Mint, Spearmint

Apple Refresh is a light, nearly floral aromatic experience. This black tea offers a body that blends apple flavor with light astringency when brewed properly.

Nothing about the flavor seems artificial or forced, which is very nice. The apple is very strong on the nose but the body yields this scent to remind you that this is a flavored black tea and not a fruit infusion.

This is a delightful afternoon pick me up or compliment to snacking. I would purchase a box on its own for summertime enjoyment or a very pleasant iced tea.

Flavors: Apple, Floral, Fruity, Malt

This is a lovely English Breakfast tea (or afternoon tea if you want a hearty black brew.)

It has all the redeeming characteristics of a good black tea, with some bite on the finish when steeped for 5+ minutes. There’s a little background note of bergamot, but never too much flavor to muddle the rest.

I’d put this in my morning rotation for sure.

It was overcast and rainy this morning, the pitter patter of water drops hummed along the rooftop. I brewed this cup with dancing bubbles dissipating from the pitcher mid-pour. Five minutes passed.
With my trusty enamel mug, I overburdened my arms and grabbed my parasol, backing out of the front door into the cold and sleet.

Steam rose from the mug as I took the hundreds of steps to my car. With full hands, I placed the mug gingerly on my spare tire carrier and unlocked the door to deposit my bags. Rain jumped along the surface of the tea. Enclosing myself in the cockpit of my vehicle, I took a first sip. A wave of calm and warmth overtook me, polarizing any shivers and soothing goosebumps from the stormy day. A kiss of citrus oil joined the medley of black tea. This was a good morning cup, on the right day for it.

Flavors: Citrus, Tannic

First time I enjoyed this tea hot but drinking it for a second time, iced, this is how it really shines.

It’s an absolute delight on ice, in fact it might be the favorite for a summer refresher that I have tried in a while.

There is a great black tea body with fruit on the nose and finish. I’m not picking up that vegetal mint this time since the flavors are bright and cold. It seems more like part of the ice and less of the body.

Icing went so well it bumped my previous rating by a few points. This puts plain ’ol peach tea to shame with a smettering of refreshing flavors. I would gladly drink an iced cup of this each hot summer day and look forward to the next one.

Bright, light and sweet. There is a lot of passion fruit on the nose, especially dry. When brewed it moves to the background and the peach comes out to play.

I found this brew invigorating, there’s a hint of mint on the tail end and finish that lingers in a great way. This offers a great afternoon infusion and a decent pick me up with some caffeine.

This isn’t a straight fruit tea, but more of an herbal tea with fruit notes and the tannic black tea flavors. Really pleasant overall and seems like it would be a great candidate for icing during this hot Florida summer.

I’m going to try it again.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Peach, Tannin
