My very first loose black tea-that’s not in a teavana blend. When I first got this I just thought, oh this tastes like regular black tea. I liked it, but I wasn’t so sure there was a difference between black loose tea and the stuff in the bags I get at the supermarket. Until I decided to just have a cup of black tea at work (lipton) and I could taste how bitter and unfresh it was. This has a brighter taste to it, fresher, and made me want to keep drinking. It also makes some great sweet tea, and is nice unsweetened too. I got it in the mystery tea for my bday and once I’ve used it all up, I will definitely be looking into ordering again. Yummy. Forgot to add i get two great steeps and one ok one with this.

I don’t remember trying any Irish tea,s. I picked this out because I don’t have any black teas at the moment and they are great for rough mornings. Never bought this brand before but I love that it is organic and fair trade. And it was on sale. It’s pretty good, makes a great sweet tea, but doesn’t stand up to milk and sugar as well as some other black teas. I get two solid brews out of it. Overall, I like it.

drank Pineapple Kona Pop by Teavana

Smells impressive, like a little bit of an overripe pineapple. I find I have to use a lot of tea to get flavor, seriously cheapo tea from the grocery has more flavor. Three scoops for about two cups pulls it together. Surpsingly pineapple, but there’s some bitter to it. You can steep it again but most of the flavor is gone. Overall, meh. Also to expensive for what it is.

Chamomile tea has been growing on me, slowly but surely. I needed a cheap night time herbal tea so I bought a box of this. Checked the ingredients and no soy or artificial flavoring so into the cart it went. First cup was delicious, light chamomile with just a hint of peach, not to artificial tasting either. I steep mine two teabags to about 18 to 20 oz of water in one of those cast iron tea pots and add just a hint of sugar. It’s 3 am and I think I might go brew a pot now, it’s calling and relaxing, but doesn’t necessarily put me to sleep, sleep is more restful though when I do drink it.

Didn’t really enjoy this much. It could have been the scent which reminded me of some sort of strawberry nutrigrain. The taste did too. Just something about it was way off. I tried it cold too thinking it would be better that way, and it is better cold but still not that good.

I really liked this ones, especially in the morning with a little sweetener and milk. Perfect amount of spice without being just cinnamon like many chais. Also great for helping to wake me up.

I was lucky to find this on sale at Giant Eagle for 3.50. Bargain! I don’t get much coconut, and the spices were kind of milk. I liked to drink it with some milk and sugar, making it a dessert tea except I drink it in the AM to help me wake up at work on days I know I will be skipping dessert. It’s a nice tea, I do really like it. But I will probably try some of the other flavors.

Got this out the bulk bin. Was very disappointed…theres hardly any flavor to it. I’ve had way better Assam tea’s from those cheap loose leaf teas you can buy in the super market. Assam is one of my favorite teas but I wouldn’t buy this again!
