Very nice fruity black tea. The currant and the tea flavors work very well together, having been blended in such a way as to give just enough of the distinctive currant flavor without being either overpowering or muted by the tea itself.

Pleasant, very mild and kind of plain green tea. It’s fine but I don’t love it.

As black teas go (which are not usually my favorite), this is a very pleasant one. It is smooth and mellow, without bitterness. No unusual flavor notes, just a pleasant tea flavor. I could see keeping this one around for days where I feel like black tea.

I thought it was okay. Pretty average but nondescript tea. It tasted like oolong tea, but there wasn’t much more to discern. I like oolongs on the greener side, but this lacked the brightness that others I’ve tried have exhibited. Had it with food and it was fine for that, but not a particularly interesting tea on its own.

As a general rule I avoid teas that end up red or purple in color. I’ve tried a few and never had one I really like. Although I should know better I got another one and to my surprise it was pretty decent. Sweetish and fruity but not cloyingly so. I probably won’t get it again but I’m willing to finish what I’ve got.

There are a lot of ingredients listed on the bag, but when I steep it I only taste one thing: lemon. Which, to be fair, was in the name of the tea. But still it was pretty one-dimensional. I have tried drinking it when I have a sore throat and it’s okay.

Totally generic tea. Quite bland, no distinct flavors, nothing particularly good or bad about it. I guess there’s a touch of sweet that could be the mango, but otherwise, just very average and nondescript. Might be good iced, or with food but not something to drink for its own merits.

I dislike the way this tea smells – it’s kind of earthy and musty. Admittedly, it tastes better than it smells, but that’s mostly because the flavor is so nondescript. It’s clear I’m drinking something warm and flavored, but it’s hard to say exactly what it is – or even if it tastes like tea. There’s a hint of something sweet at the finish, but not much else. Not a good tea.

Very nice aroma and minty flavor. I don’t know that I detect any of the other spices distinctly, but it’s not just straight mint so there must be something else lurking there. It’s nice, used to be a favorite. One trouble is it must be drunk quite hot to taste good. My mug has gotten a bit toward lukewarm and it’s much less pleasant.
