This ended up quite tart with pretty strong spices as well. I end up not loving this one. The spices and fruit don’t combine that smoothly so I sort of taste the flavors at separate times? There’s not a lot of nuance either. I guess it probably does check the mulled wine box I assume it’s going for, but that’s always been a flavor profile that doesn’t work for me.

I love a eucalyptus tea! I taste the herbaceous flavor and a bit of fruitiness. Slightly too much herbaceousness, but it’s pleasant cold. My second cup was less herbaceous, more fruity. This is refreshing and different from other fruity teas I’ve had, though not quite well-balanced enough to order again.

This is a pretty generic red fruity tea. It’s pleasant enough cold with sugar. It’s candy-like in a way that reminds me of jello. This is better than some versions of this tea, but it’s just too average of a flavor profile to bother seeking this one out in particular.

TTB sample! At first, I found the level of smoke/meatiness to be okay, though it built to be too much after a while. This one is definitely strong if you like that sort of thing.

TTB tea! This definitely tastes like Ceylon. Not bad! There’s a pleasant amount of strength/body. Good at room temperature with milk and sugar, though not special enough to seek out.

drank Lemon Meringue Chai by 52teas

I taste mostly lemon plus mild chai spices. It’s a bit of a lighter chai than I’d prefer, but I feel like I get what this one is going for. Pleasant with milk and sugar. I steeped it for longer the last time I had it, and it tastes even better. I sort of do get both the lemon and chai vibes from this! It’s such a fun idea. It’s best cold.

I didn’t like this at all. It has a weird sour flavor. It’s supposed to be like popcorn, but it really didn’t work for me. I tried it two different times hot and cold, with milk and without, and I couldn’t escape that unpleasant sourness. I guess it’s from the apple?

drank Pumpkin Juice by Sub Rosa Tea

TTB sample! The spices here are pretty boring. The flavors were better cold, but still basic. It didn’t make me think of pumpkin juice or pumpkin spice.

drank Rooibos by Meijer

TTB teabag! This is a decent cold rooibos! It’s not as good as the Ajiri one I have, but it’s still a satisfying, pretty well-rounded cup of cold tea.

drank Thai Tea by P. S. W. Inc.

TTB teabag! This brewed up super orange! It calls itself a tisane with the only listed ingredient being “Thai tea”. It’s definitely actually black. It does taste a bit like Thai tea! It’s not quite there, but I taste a gentle Thai tea vibe. It has almost a creamy coconut feeling. Milk and sugar bring it all together. I’ve tried better ones you can make at home though.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
