Grabbed this from the Discovery teabox. Thank you all! It’s like a chai with a rooibos base. Which would be fantastic in theory, especially on a cold blizzard night. However, the blend also has splenda, which kind of took over the flavor. Without splenda, and with a little more in the teabag, to make it extra spicy, this would be find. Somehow I wasn’t even tasting orange?
2019 sipdowns: 15 (Rostov’s Chocolate Mint)
This is a lot more delicately flavored than other teas of this variety. I think that’s actually a good thing here. The primary flavor is ginger. The orange is present too if you’re paying attention. This is the sort of tea that’s just really easy to drink. I thoroughly enjoyed my tea bag of it and would certainly grab more if I came across it again.
An OK tea. However i don’t taste much other than the usual green tea taste. I taste little to no dragonwell characteristics even though i brewed the recommended way and even longer than that way… i would not buy this again nor would i recommend it…
Vegetal sencha with strong “green tea” flavour. Slightly sweet, notes of seaweed. The bitterness and slight astringency aren’t bad at all. The flavour reminds me of green beans and leaves. Pretty gross, it’s all the flavours I dislike in tea. This is a good example of a green tea that non-green tea people will dislike, it isn’t even good in terms of quality. Even green fans wouldn’t enjoy it.

this is a light green tea (as they’re wont to be). I brew it for quite of bit, but it still only keeps a very refreshing taste. It’s not a fruity tea, and also not too bitter. Really, it only has a little bit of a bitter kick after a sip. It’s absolutely delightful as a daily tea.
I received this in a swap from hapatite. Thank you!
This is not what I was expecting. This tea was very similar to hot cinnamon spice form Harney and Sons. It had the sweet cinnamon in in that I use to love. Unfortunately that sweet cinnamon now throws me for a bit of a loop. I am thankful for the chance to try this one, but it is not for me.
Great Canadian TTB and sipdown!! (158)
I pulled one of these teabags out of the box to try later and after my first sip, I wish I hadn’t. When you are going to make the bold move of calling a tea “Delicious”, you really should ensure you have a product that can back-up that claim. This certainly is far from what I would call “delicious” – it is cloyingly sweet at first and then ends with a pinch of cinnamon that really just makes things worse. I am sorry but this got dumped as I could not get through the cup. Thank you Lala for the chance to try something new but this really is not for me.
I actually really like this tea. I had low expectations for it based on the packaging & name, but I am pleasantly surprised. I chose it for a tasting today because I only have 2 tea bags left of it (I have gifted the rest) & I’m trying to clean out my tea cupboard. Now I’m bummed it will be gone soon!
The smell is surprisingly spicy when dry. Even after forgetting about it for about an hour and re-heating, the tea is not bitter. I like the smell and taste of this when brewed. Unlike most chai, the spices come at the end of the sip & are more balanced, almost like pumpkin pie spice. Not overly cinnamony either.
Travelling Tea Box C
I felt like this tea had been contaminated by a lot of other teas in the box. What I could tell was it was a spring-like green with a little bit of seaweed taste. There were a lot of generic floral and perfume elements in the taste that came from the box methinks.
Very vegetal with a lingering grassy taste. I hate this tea, and will probably catch the rest of it on fire. I don’t think that I should give it a rating because I’m not a fan of green teas to begin with, but this is absolutely the worst green tea I’ve ever had. Ever.
Doctor wants me to drink more water. (Posted a plea for inspiration for how to zizz up hot water in “discussions.”) Somebody left a bunch of these for grabs, so I dragged one through my hot water about four dunks worth.
I am not a jasmine lover, but this is strong stuff, so it scented/tasted my mug enough I don’t feel like I’m drinking bathwater. I’m thinking that if I let it go prescribed time, it would be so flowery I couldn’t stand it.
I have not had this one in forever. I decided to try this one as an iced tea. I brewed 4 bags in about 2 cups water for 2 minutes. Then I diluted with 1L cold water and chilled in fridge overnight.
I do not remember this one being so so so super sweet. I did not add any sweetener. It is bordering on prune juice. It is sweet and thick. There is just the slightest hint of spices but I couldn’t tell you what spices. It reminds me of plum cake or plum pie.
I think I am going to have to dilute this one a bit more as is it too sweet for me right now. I am going to have to try this one hot again to see if it is just as sweet when hot, or if maybe I brewed it up too strong for the iced tea.
This tea was gifted to me along with a tea pot, so it has a special place in my heart. I find it to be a delicious tea, although it can be a little sweet. After steeping it, I often dilute it with more water. It very clearly tastes like plum, is sweet and not sour or bitter.
I got this because it was like a billion bags for cheap at Wal-Mart and I feel like all the cheap green teas should be about the same. They aren’t. I found this one very bitter and otherwise devoid of flavor.
I can never buy tea from Wal-Mart … or I should say I never will. I was about to buy tea from them and checked out the expiration date on it, and it was almost a year past the expiration date! They do not care about their tea, and I guess I’m a bit of a tea snob (or so I’ve been told) but really, that’s inexcusable, in my opinion.
