I bought the Ultimate Variety Tea Bag Assortment Jar because I wanted to sample a cross section of your teas. When It arrived I divided the teas into 3 different cycles and also made a list where I could rate from each from 1 to 10. I've nearly completed my 1st cycle where I rate every tea. 2nd cycle will be tasting to see if my 1st impressions were right and offering any corrections. Its at this point I'll order what I like best. I 1st tried The Republic of Tea because my Keurig died and I didn't want to pay for a high priced delivery systyem - would rather spend my money on premium teas. I have to say I'm impressed and will be ordering. Right now there is a sample of Good Hope Vanilla in my cup. My top choices thus far are Republic Chai, Blackberry Sage and Organic Mint Fields. Least favorite has been Honey Ginseng. I'm eagerly looking forward to British Breakfast and Earl Greyer.

I really loved my assortment Jar. The container is a good size for my dining table. I rarely buy any tea at the grocery stores. I buy all my tea from here.

Nearly perfect

from GA on wrote:

The reasons I say this is nearly, but not totally perfect... my beau and I both find that the jar opening is too small to get an entire hand into so, the teas almost always have to be dumped out to find the one that we want. Second reason- TROT doesn't sell "custom", or even regular 45 count bag refills for these jars.

A little too much selection

There were some brilliant teas in this assortment, but there were also some that I was not fond of. I thought the ratio of black and green tea to white and rooibos was way off. I would like to see a more even split, especially more rooibos since those are my favorites. I think I would prefer 4 or 5 of each flavor and fewer flavors. I used many of these for a tea exchange, so by the time I tried them, there were only two of each flavor left to send out. I really loved the Honey Ginseng green and would have liked to send that out to more people.

This is a great gift if you're new to Republic of Tea and want to get a taste of what they have to offer. I was very pleased with the wide selection and it was at a great price, too. Plus, the container it comes in is reusable and very decorative. Two thumbs up!

This is a great variety of teas, plus they taste great. Great way to introduce your family to tea. They make great little gifts, just include one packet in your correspondence to friends and family. The glass canister is great to have on your countertop too. It makes a wonderful gift, everyone loves it. Highly recommend to everyone.

I bought 3 at Christmas time, were to all be gifts, but I couldn't part with one. The 2 gifts have been greatly enjoyed and I love mine. Such a great way to sample all the different teas. I still can't choose a favorite.

I've introduced all my workmates to Republic of Tea (Ginger Peach has been my favorite for ... 15 years??). I brought this lovely jar of assorted teas into work to everyone's delight. People love to handle, look at, read and admire the brightly colored packets, and of course, they love to drink the wonderful tea! So yummy for all the senses!!

I got this as a Christmas gift because I've been into tea recently and haven't been able to try a ton of different teas since they're usually sold in bigger quantities. I really love the large selection of teas and am enjoying the ability to try teas I would have been worried about buying before. My only complaint about this sampler is the glass container. It's not easy to fish through the container for the tea bags and turns into a little project of its own. I tried to organize the tea bags but some always ended up on the bottom. Maybe a bigger container or a bag would have been better.

Nice Gift!

These jars make a nice gift with a great assortment of teas. My only complaint is that of the 4 jars I ordered, one arrived broken. Other than that, I'm very pleased with the product and the people who recieved them were happy too!

I agree with Kristina as to the price of this item. By the sound of the reviews a different container is needed or just a box to keep the price down. Maybe offer the two choices. Just tried Strawberry Chocolate & look forward to enjoying the chocolate variety pack I just ordered.

Lovely display jar and a lovely assortment of tea. It is super fun trying all your different flavours without committing to a large quantity of just one kind. Would make a great gift.

I was wanting an assortment of teas to try. I would have liked a more even assortment of black vs. green. The jar is cute, and will be re-used, but it is hard to get to the teas at the bottom of the jar. I was impressed with the packing materials that it was sent it!

All the teas are wonderful, and the jar looks nice on the counter. If you want a tea that is not on the top though it can become cumbersome getting more than one bag in or out of the jar.

I had two objectives when I ordered this tea bag assortment. 1. Taste more Republic of Tea products my self. 2. Have a stash of individually labeled tea bags to include in small gift bags along with homemade cookies or other items for teachers, neighbors etc. when a larger gift would be awkward. Unlabeled, unpackaged tea bags would likely be thrown away - these will be enjoyed I'm sure. The other sampler selections are pretty limited so I was glad to see this product and it's just what I wanted.

My brother-in-law loves the tea. I was a little disappointed with the jar. You all usually have such great packaging. I could have picked this one up at the dollar store and put the tea in it myself. Should have had a label or creative ribbon with a hang tag or something.
