The rose is prominent but not overpowering. It tastes light pink, that airy kind of rose. Mint is subtle, a little herbaceous (unless that’s the raspberry leaves), and comes out more several minutes into sipping as a cooling in the mouth and chest. Light tulsi taste mixes with the rose and peppermint.. Definitely has that thin herbal tea body. Lingering gentle, sweet and fruity elderberry-appley chamomile-licorice root finish. If I hadn’t read the ingredients, I wouldn’t have known there to be rosehips in the blend. I guess now I taste their tartness after the swallow. Pretty good. Still don’t think I’d buy a box but happy to sip. It’s too complicated and clunky for my herbal tea likes.

I have received this tea bag from postcrossing. Thanks goes to Houston this time.
Honestly, I had no idea what to expect as ingredients list isn’t very attractive.
But decided to brew it anyway, for recommended 4 minutes being afraid it will be terribly spicy and hot. It isn’t.
I got rather a milky, mild spicy, muddy drink with hints of vanilla and cream. While it wasn’t bad per se, it was somehow boring, plain… and overall not impressive. As for bagged stuff, it is below average; as for teas overall… nothing to try again.
Flavors: Creamy, Milk, Mud, Spicy, Vanilla
To say I’ve been drinking this tea for fifty years is no exaggeration. It the only tea that I now find brings bittersweet tears to my eyes, so strong is the association with childhood and mother (RIP). As a kid I called it “consta comet”, and as an adult I’ll call it a comforting if mediocre tea. The brilliance is not the actual black tea quality, but rather the spices blended with it that have transformed some generic black into a satisfying brew. Of course I recommend it, how could I not. Because of the heartstrings it pulls, it gets my rare 100 rating. Your mileage may vary. Now I have to go to work with puffy, moist eyes.
Absolutely horrible, tried one bag and threw out the entire box. I do not know what was going on with this tea. It tasted like stale gingerbread and some sort of rancid nut oils. Upset my stomach and I was burping the nasty taste for hours and felt like I could still smell it. Maybe I got a bad box?
Been having some reoccurring health issues again lately so I haven’t been really feeling like drinking any loose leaf teas. It’s pretty much just a waiting game until I can see the new specialist. Back to the tea this one is a really nice bagged tea the rose, tulsi, and fruitiness from the rosehips really blend well here. I’m interested in seeing what the other teas from this collection taste like. The Aloe one they offer sounded good. The packaging here is also very pretty.
Single tea bag from a tea box. The main flavor I get from this is licorice. There’s some earthy ginger as well and some light fruitiness. It tastes pretty good, but I definitely would have preferred more peach with a touch of ginger. I didn’t expect as much licorice as I tasted considering the name.
A tea bag from Madeline, thank you!
Oh well. Delicate green tea with the added touch of sweet pomegranate they claim. I call it a cheap green tea with an apple flavour.
Pomegranate? Not even in the aroma of the moist bag. That was actually quite sour.
Brewed and steeped for three minutes as they suggest was okay. I was craving for fruity green today. Unfortunately not a single tea was what I was looking for. This one, is mostly hay. And artificial, stinging a bit, apple flavour. Yes, I don’t get any pomegranate from it, not even in the colour. It looks like a swamp water.
Two greens today, as I need to work on my statistics paper due on Monday, and I was studying for one of two exams on Monday all day too. I prefer Mathematics instead of Economy. But yep, my nerves are going crazy a lot recently, which is completely normal and I am afraid tomorrow I won’t be able to study at all (but I should)
