20 Tasting Notes
This fruit tea is excellent on ice! It has very tropical notes to it, so it is perfect for summer weather. In addition to the dragonfruit, I definitely taste some coconut. It is not tart, which is a welcome change from some of the other fruit teas I’ve had. It is smooth, but not super sweet or artificial tasting. I definitely would recommend this and very well may buy this tea again, especially if it goes on sale.
Flavors: Coconut, Fruity, Smooth, Tropical
This one is just ok for me. It has a nice, earthy-like taste that mixes with chocolate notes. The chocolate reminds me more of a Tootsie Roll flavor than of actual, rich, dark chocolate. It is a little sweet, but that was expected since it is a chocolate tea. Personally, I prefer this one cold (I taste more of the chocolate that way), but I have had it hot too. Overall, not something I would rush to buy more of, but it isn’t necessarily bad either.
Flavors: Cocoa, Earth, Sweet
While there is some artificial-tasting raspberry to it, it is overwhelmingly overpowered by the creamy, sugary notes. I feel like I am drinking powdered sugar. Maybe if someone really enjoys sweets and/or sugary drinks they would like it. This tea is not for me though and I would not purchase this one again. I also definitely would not recommend it to other folks who are sensitive to sugar, as sugar seems to be a strong ingredient in this tea.
Flavors: Berry, Cream, Frosting, Sugar, Sweet
This tea is extremely strong, in terms of the citrus flavor. The name is accurate— the orange in this is pretty wild! The tea is fairly sweet, rather than tart. I am not a fan of this as a hot tea, but it is ok when cold-brewed and sipped cold on a warm day. It does have almost a cleaner-like taste to it, probably because the citrus is so overpowering. There is also a somewhat bitter aftertaste, almost like what you would get if you bit into an orange peel.
Flavors: Bitter, Citrusy, Orange Zest
Given the price-point and that it was a peppermint tea, I wasn’t expecting anything too amazing. This tea, however, is surprisingly delicious! There is an almost cream-like, smooth element to the mint, maybe from the licorice root. The result is a tea that reminds me more of an after-dinner buttermint than a traditional, red-and-white striped peppermint. It is smooth and soothing. I have had it hot and cold and I like it both ways.
Flavors: Cocoa, Mint, Smooth, Vanilla
If you love lemon, this is the tea for you! Unlike the name suggests, however, there really isn’t much spice to this tea (at least not in my opinion). The lemon is very strong but I only get a slight hint of spice on the back end. I have had this tea hot and cold; it is tasty either way.
Flavors: Lemon, Lemon Zest
I am usually not a huge fan of spiced teas, but this one had a great balance to it. I loved that I got hints of cinnamon and ginger, yet they were not overpowering. There was a fruity/nutty element to the tea too. If you have had Forever Nuts, this tea is reminiscent of that but with a little extra spice.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Ginger, Nuts
