This one definitely has that flavor of red hots, like Harney’s hot cinnamon sunset. Except this is a green base, so the only thing you really taste is the flavoring with a tiny bit of the tea beneath. I think I do prefer it with the black base to give it the added depth. So this tastes all right, but there are better versions of this flavor profile. It’s just a bit more muted than I prefer.
We’ve really been enjoying this tea. It’s kind of the epitome of Hot Cider tea. Not sweet either though we’ve been adding a bit of basswood honey to each cup. It’s quickly become one of our afternoon mainstays especially as it’s begun feeling like Autumn.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Clove, Lemon, Nutmeg
This one’s a treasure. All the right autumnal notes. Sort of a perfect stereotype in a cup. Heavy on the apple notes plus the requisite amount of spice notes: cloves cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Is that all there? Yessiree!!
Flavors: Apple, Nutmeg, Spices, White Grapes
I bought this for my partner on a whim as he’s become a fan of passion fruit of late. I thought it’d be nice to have a good black tea to mix things up in the afternoons. The fragrance straight out of the package was bonkers good. It’s hard to describe but a punch of fruit forward joy! It’s a solid black tea with just the right amount of perk. A pleasurable cup to be sure!
Flavors: Candy, Passion Fruits
My last Market Spice order was definitely a mixed bag, but this blend was one of the hits for me! I’m a sucker for nutty dessert teas, but I don’t remember trying anything that was macadamia nut flavored before. The nuttiness combines super well with the vanilla and the base tea is present but not too assertive. Really lovely with milk!
Flavors: Nutty, Smooth, Vanilla
This tea tastes like melted gummy bears! The fruit flavor is STRONG, but unfortunately quite artificial. I really didn’t care for it hot, but it worked better for me iced. Glad I found a way to drink it, because Market Spice only sells in 4oz quantities, so I have a LOT of this to get through!
Flavors: Artificial, Candy, Fruity
A previous reviewer described this tea as “pre-sweetened” and like a “dessert tea,” and the description on the site says it includes stevia leaves for sweetening.
That is exactly what I wanted as I am on a quest to find another sugarless tea that is very sweet to help me keep drinking tea instead of sugary lattes. But I do not taste one iota of sweetness in this tea. It smells like coffee creamer with fruit. It’s pretty bitter, maybe because I was really expecting this one to be sweet and am disappointed? I dislike the aftertaste. This is not a tea I’ll want to sip again soon.
I’ve been drinking this tea more frequently. In my previous review, I said it could be sweeter, but actually I find myself enjoying it as is. The pear taste is not overwhelming. It’s very smooth. I imagine this is what a ghost-pear might taste like. I get the scent and taste of pear and then it disappears off my tongue. There is a very faint bitter aftertaste that motivates me to take the next sip. This has risen to become one of my favorites.
From the description on the site: “A cup of this tea will take you back to the amusement park! It tastes and smells just like a traditional caramel apple.”
I just- don’t get that? Maybe because I was expecting this tea to be sweeter, but I don’t feel any nostalgia or feel like this is reminiscent of a caramel apple.
This tea is not for me.
Ingredients: Hunan Black Tea, Lemon Peel, Caramel and Apple Flavoring.
The smell is strong delicious raspberry (it is described on the site as chocolate mint raspberry) and the taste is not bitter but also not sweet. I’m a fan of MarketSpice Cinnamon Orange, which is a very sweet tea, and bought some other flavors to sample. This one is really nice despite not being sweet.
Ingredients: Black tea, Red Raspberries, Mint Leaves and Chocolate-Mint flavoring.
This was an impulse purchase in my last Market Spice order and I’m actually wishing I’d ordered more than 2oz! (Especially since 2oz isn’t all that much when it’s such a heavy, fruit-filled tea blend.) This may be one of the best fruit-flavored black teas I’ve tried! I don’t really get the promised apricot flavor; it’s mostly mango and strawberry. But the combination is lovely and the base tea is the perfect smooth, lightly sweet foundation for the flavors. It’s great hot, but I just tried it iced for the first time and I think I may like it that way even better! A new favorite.
Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Smooth, Strawberry, Sweet
The tea box is here! So many teas to choose from I don’t know where to start. I initially brewed this for 3 minutes and didn’t like the result, so put the leaf back in my cup for another few minutes. It helped a lot, and now as it has cooled the caramel flavor is coming out. Not a whole lot of apple here, maybe as an aftertaste? I’m not sure how to rate this tea, as a flavored tea I’m sure it would be nice with some sugar or honey, but I rarely put in sweetener so maybe this one’s not for me.
My oh my, I absolutely adore this tea! I wanted something light and herbal for the evening without sacrificing taste and flavor, and this tea certainly delivered! The peach and coconut flavors compliment each other just right and the overall combination made this one of my favorite white teas to date.
Flavors: Coconut, Fruity, Peach, Sweet
