It was good, but it had a very strong "tea taste" that overpowered the other flavors. I also didn't find it strong enough...but I have a high caffeine tolerance. I don't think I would buy this one again, but I will definitely give a different blend a try.
Almond Sugar Cookie Dessert
I expected this tea to be too sweet for me and tried it at my daughter's request after it was on her wish list for two of my orders. Wonderful, complex, decadent tea with a great aroma.
When I first chose this for my subscription box I was skeptical. As a baker I'm not a fan of almond extract and have been fooled by other almond teas. The almond flavor in this tea is real, not extract, and it shines through wonderfully! A little sugar and milk make for a delightful treat. Almost as good as a homemade cookie fresh out of the oven. Good enough to get me to order more!
Almond Sugar Cookie Dessert
I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this tea. This is not a delicate choice. There is a sense of a fullness to the tea as I sip it.
The taste follows that fullness. I have never been able to detect subtleties as when the write ups will declare “a hint of …” so I cannot offer an adequate description. I can tell you that it feels as if you’ve joined with something solid and dependable
This brewed tea's dark color may suggest it would be overly strong and bitter. Instead it is a smooth, silky tea that even has umame qualities. Great on its own or with a bit of cream and sugar.
Great flavor and nose that evolves over steeps but is just a bit too mild for what I normally expect from a pu erh. Overall serviceable and enjoyable but don't go into it expecting a coffee-like pu erh experience as some provide.
AA Oolong, is an exceptional full bodies Oolong with a great smooth finish.
Not sure why cider is in the name. All I get is maple flavor so strong it must be artificial. A definite pass for me.
This tea is great hot and I enjoy it just as much of it gets cold when I've forgotten it. The apple is not as tart as other kinds I have tried, which I enjoy. A little milk and sugar transform it from a fall evening cider into a warm apple pie. Great evening treat either way!
Delicious taste that evokes fall days. Great for the late afternoon winddown
Love the test and smell of this tea! I do plan to order more!
The aroma and taste are so good! This is an enjoyable calorie free experience.
I waited so impatiently for this tea to arrive…5 minutes after arriving , I filled my cup with this scrumptious tea, you can taste the apples, cinnamon and toast! I will be without a fail adding this to my daily cup!
First time I received this tea in the mail, I wondered how I was supposed to measure a teaspoon. Well, I did the best I could and found that I love this bold black tea. I’ve restocked 3 or 4 times now.
Perfect oolong. Balanced & even better when steeped a couple of times.
Big Snow Mountain of Mengku Black Tea
Black Dragon is my all-time favorite daily morning tea. This tea has a wonderful robust flavor without being too astringent. Warm cocoa notes. I love it.
I'm a recent subscriber to Tea Runners that prefers black teas, and this has been my favorite black tea I've tried (from Tea Runners or elsewhere). It's very classic, with some mild sweetness. I typically do not add to my tea, and this is one that's perfect as is, in my opinion. The pearls add to the fun of brewing the tea, and make measuring easy too.
Nothing special. You can taste what you expect from black tea. It has a mild taste for black tea so you can enjoy it without any condiments.
I'm excited every time it's tea time, love the flavor. Love the flowers in my tea, makes me feel special. The whole experience is Supermellogofloupious.
Tried this and had to buy more. Subtle sweet hints, extremely tasty. Yay!
Though it comes at a premium price, it is a premium tea. The meticulous rolled leaves add to its value, not sure it effects the taste but definitely a fun conversation when offering to friends. It’s a great tasting black tea! I add a little cream & sweetener to mine. 4.5/5
Rich, smooth, delicious. I keep reaching for this bag of tea-I will be ordering more in larger bag! O
My new favorite! Hot or cold it's amazing. Cold it reminds me of dark chocolate, I little sweet with a hint of bitterness. One of the smoothest teas I've ever drank. I will be buying this EVERY TIME
I had to order more of this tea. It’s one of my favorite black teas and I’m sure I’ll order it again in a few months.
Delicious hot, makes a fine iced tea as well. Resteeps beautifully as well. As the title says, it’s one of our favorite teas.
This is my favorite tea. It really holds up to multiple steepings, so I try to have it only when I have the time to steep three times, though the third steeping is the weakest, it is still delicious. I usually do 3, 4, then 5 minutes for the steep times, and just a teaspoon of sugar, or less, to sweeten.
