Delicious Tea!!! March 16, 2015

Locke Jones

Wilmington, DE

It has a delicious spicy sweet-ish taste. Best flavor comes for the last few sips in the pot. Also, you don't need honey with this tea. I bet you'll love it.

Kimble West

Burton, MI

Absolutely love this tea. I am reordering. I take it w/me when traveling. The taste is superb. Introduced to my son-in-law & mister picky loved it. I highly recommend this tea for anytime day or evening or time of the year. I enjoy a cup sitting in my sun room in the morning.

Lovely Sipping December 11, 2014

Patricia Webb

Madison Heights, VA

I first tried this tea from a sample sent in one of your catalogs. I ordered the full-leaf and just love it. It makes a lovely "bedtime" tea to sip before retiring. The fragrance is soothing and reminds me of spice cake and the taste is smooth and refreshing. I would recommend this to anyone fond of old fashioned spicy things.

Surprising unique blend December 11, 2014


Milwaukee, WI

I am so happy I received a sample Teabag with my catalogue, because I never would have tried this tea. Usually certain ingrediants like Cinnamon, ginger, mint etc overpower the flavor. But this is a very careful blend with each spice in perfect proportion. I truly love the unique flavor. I used to put cardamon in my coffee or cookies. I am delighted to meet it in a wonderful new tea.

I don't just drink this... September 22, 2014

Nancy Case

Hartsburg, MO

I mistakenly stored this in an unlabeled container a while ago, and forgot what it was. Surmising that it was either a spice mix or tea, I decided to grind it and see what it tasted like. It is just fabulous to sprinkle on a lamb roast, or add to a stew. Then brew a pot a drink it too!

I happened upon this tea just recently while travelling in the U.S. Fell in LOVE with it. I had never had full leaf loose herbs before so it was a new experience. I love this tea. Sometimes I take the lid of the can just to look at how pretty it is and to smell it's wonderful aroma..... hooked!

This is a fantastic cold weather tea. I drink it on it's own, combined with black tea, or even combined with Roibos. Depth and clarity of flavor, yum!

Outstanding! October 23, 2013


St Johnsbury, VT

I received my order today and immediately prepared a cup of the tea and I must say that it is heavenly. It is just spicy enough and all the special, individual notes of each of the spices come through but one does not overpower the other. I am placing an order for more!

Better than mulled January 28, 2013

Eliesa Davis

Gonzales, LA

Forget waiting till the holidays and hoping you can find a good herb and spice blend to make mulled cider. This is absolutely wonderful made with apple cider or apple juice. You will never want to use anything else again. I pour a little of the apple juice out, put my tea into the bottle and put it in the fridge. Anytime I want hot spiced cider I pour it into a cup and microwave it. I am not going to try to tell you any measurements, there are 3 adults in the house and we all like different amounts in our juice. Just play around with it till your happy.

Great taste, wonderful smell November 24, 2012


Lancaster, PA

I bought this tea while trying various herbal teas that I could drink later at night. Upon opening the taster tin, both the bright colors of the ingredients and the wonderful smell are both immediately noticeable. I haven't tried with milk or iced, only hot so far. The flavor is well-balanced with a tiny hint of spice from the red peppercorns. It's a great cold weather herbal tea. I will be ordering a full tin of this for sure!

Fragrant Holiday Tea November 23, 2012


Overland Park, KS

Sometimes I open the tin just to experience the fragrance! It is too bad this tea does not come in a glass jar because it is visually beautiful as well as delicious. If you have some teas that are not your favorites, add a teaspoon of this to enliven them. This should definitely be listed along with the other holiday teas.

The best! October 27, 2012



I bought this originally because I was looking for a way to make chai at home. This not just fills the bill, it exceeds all hopes and expectations. A full-bodied totally herbal tea great with milk, sugar or nothing added. Wonderful hot, terrific iced and lovely at room temperature. People ask for it whenever they visit. This is truly an amazing tea accomplishment!

My new favorite tea! October 19, 2012


Streetsboro, OH

I normally am just a black tea drinker, but I was looking for a herbal tea I could drink in the evening. Normally, herbal teas are too bland or fruity for me, but this tea was perfect! It has now become my evening, afternoon, and sometimes even morning tea!!!! Even got my mom into drinking it! You need to try this tea!

Smells like Christmas! August 27, 2012


Safety Harbor, FL

My husband recently had to stop drinking caffeinated drinks. We found this tea and he loves it! He doesn't even miss having coffee. We opened the bag and it smelled like Christmas. He brews it and then adds milk, chai-style. Thanks for an awesome product.

Not what I expected!! March 28, 2012


Raeford, NC

I bought this tea because I wanted something different. I wasn't a big fan of cinnamon, but when I opened the can, the aroma instantly grabbed me. I brewed the tea, added honey(just a little), and then ice, WOW! I have found a favorite taste for ice tea! I've shared my experience and tea with everyone, and they love it as well! Thank you for the mix of flavors that definitely is unique!

Perfect evening drink! February 20, 2012

Hampton, VA

I often make this late at night when i need a cup of tea that has no caffene. its alos one that leds itself to a nice smooth iced tea. I also mix it loose with the loose leaf Republic Chai full- leaf. It adds a bit of extra spice to that mix when i need it with out the extra caffene. Thank you!

The whole family enjoys this tea; hot, cold or warm. It's aroma is always inviting and refreshing. I buy it in bulk so I can take a tin to work, on the road or have it at home. Blending it with a green or black tea adds a bit of a kick.

I am hardly an expert with tea, but this was recommended to me when I was shopping in specialty store near my home. I was reluctant to try a loose leaf tea, but the shopkeeper convinced me to try it, since I was so intrigued by the sound of it. I'm not one for very fruity teas (though I do like lemon and orange flavors) and liked the idea of these spices. I loved it and am so happy she convinced me to give it a go. I like many of your other flavors but this one, for me at least, is so unique to anything else I've tried. Thanks.

combination December 19, 2011


Ketchikan, AK

If you use .75 of a measure of Cardamon Cinnamon and .50 of just plane Red Rooibos, you will have a great combination. They tend to bring out the flavor of each other.

Excellent autumn and winter tea! December 11, 2011


, KS

This is one of my favorite spiced teas for colder weather. I especially like it because it is herbal and naturally decaf. The flavors remind one of spiced cider but without the apple flavor. This tea is best with milk and a bit of sweetener, but great by itself as well. I bought the refill bag of loose tea to fill up my tin. Very happy to have found the refill bag sold by RoT. :)

I enjoy this tea both hot & with ice. I also grind it up in my spice grinder for use in bread recipies, soups, salad dressings, sauces, Indian Chutney & turkey stuffing. I love the way it makes my home smell when I cook or bake with it.

San Diego, CA

This herbal will transport you to autumn any time of year! It has a very rich, complex flavor and it smells divine (I've had coworkers comment on how good my office smells after I've brewed this one).
