The first 2 oz envelope of this tea that I bought was fairly good and tasted like salted caramel. The current envelope that I have is very sweet and really doesn’t taste like actual caramels. The tea has no personality! Not ordering it again.

Ha! You had better luck than I did!

Seems so. This tea is ok, but I prefer Rishi’s “Reishi Mushroom Hero.”

So sweet as to make me gag, I tossed out the entire cup after tasting. So did my husband. The stevia is overpowering even though it is the final ingredient in the list. I also get a faint metallic flavor from this tea which may be the affect of the stevia (which I am not certain of as I have never been sensitive to this before I bought from Davids Tea). I washed out the cups with soap prior to trying another tea. Awful.

Flavors: Sweet

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp

Sweet flavor, but the Stevia makes my tongue burn. Had I been able to read the fine print, I would not have purchased this tea.

My husband said “it smells like stinky socks.” I tasted it; it tasted even worse. I threw out all of it. Never buying again. We regularly drink valerian, chamomile, and passion flower teas but this was AWFUL.

Nice mild, malty tea for when you don’t want something bold and astringent.

Very faint flavors of apple cider and cinnamon. I use two tea bags but the flavor just isn’t there. My husband thought we should use it, just pour 6 oz of water max. Going through teas I bought while I was working long hours and assessing what I should buy again.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Red Apple

Well-balanced, smooth Earl Grey with noticeable bergamot oil. Good mellow cup.

Very little flavor in this tea. I steeped to the required time and no flavor. I put in 2 sachets and steeped the required time, just the faintest flavor of cinnamon. Not like a good quality cinnamon spice but more like a very cheap candy. Could not taste vanilla at all. I threw it out; I hate to be wasteful but that was just a bad mistake. Republic of Tea has great label art and generally lousy tea.

Very thin flavor for being a “Double Dark Chocolate.” The last cup I had, I put 3 teabags in my cup and steeped fro the full seven minutes as recommended on the label. Still thin. Yes it has a cocoa flavor, it has a chocolate flavor, and as another reviewer said it also tastes like dirt (must’ve gone flying off of a horse or a motorcycle like I have to recognize that). Republic of Tea has amazing labels but the tea generally just isn’t as good as other brands.

Flavors: Cocoa
