Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"The mouthpiece aroma was - accurately enough - classic black tea. I thought I detected a bit of the chocolaty aspect in the finish."

"Wonderful oolong blend with vanilla, hazelnut and citrus notes. Highly recommended!"

      9.1/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The oolong base itself seems to be ultra-creamy, and the vanilla essence, in addition to complementing the flavor of this tea, also enhances the texture. I savored every sip of this smooth, velvety, and sweet deliciousness."

"Wow - I never would have thought to put these flavors together, but they produce a wonderful silky soft, comforting tea! Mandarin Silk is the perfect name for this tea!"

Art of Tea Green Pear

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Stephen Stephen's review:
"A delicious pear-flavored green tea... the flavor is more akin to candied pears, and is sweeter and more concentrated than in most similar blends."

Art of Tea Caramelized Pear

8.1/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The flavor profile is dominated by a rather authentic pear flavor that reminds me of canned pears so much that I kept expecting there to be a bit of graininess in the cup."

Teaviews Member: Shaiha Shaiha's review:
"One of the best pear blends I have had the opportunity to try. Highly recommended!"

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"You can control the flavors of the blend by using or omitting sweetener and I think that's a plus as you could tailor the flavor to suit a variety of tastes."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This fruit-flavored tea is quite good, though it leans heavily on the tangy side and almost not at all on the sweet side."

Teaviews Member: Lea Lea's review:
"Soothing and comforting, with a floral undertone... it has a sweet and unusual biscuit-like taste to it that I really enjoyed."

Teaviews Member: Shane Shane's review:
"A flowery tea, with a strong taste of saffron... brings to mind a warm biscuit drizzled with honey. I'd recommend it."

Art of Tea TNT Chill Out

7/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Shane Shane's review:
"A simple, light and flavorful tea... not overpowering but just like the name suggests, the kind of blend you can "chill out" with."

      7/10
Teaviews Member: Lea Lea's review:
"Fruity and a little floral-tasting, with a hint of sweetness thrown in... quite tasty, plus its fun to watch the leaves uncurl from the "cake"."

Art of Tea Liquid Jade

7/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"Faintly bergamot with a hint of honey."
Read review »
      6.1/10
Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"The bergamot is a pleasant match for the honeydew and muscatel notes of the tea. The finish is particularly refreshing, being slightly dry and citrusy."
Read review »
      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The main body of the tea is very mild, but grassy, grainy, and woodsy notes are present. There is just a hint of bergamot in the finish. "

Art of Tea Coconut Cacao Pu-erh

6.8/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
"Seemingly a chocolate island indulgence turned coconut milky. "
Read review »
      4.4/10
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"I am on my knees begging the folks at Art of Tea to create another version of this with a black tea base as the flavor profile itself (coconut, cacao, hazelnut) is totally delicious and it has an amazing aroma."
Read review »
      8/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"Chocolate notes fold right into the coconut and complete the flavor profile most decadently while the pu-erh's robust quality makes it equal to the task of supporting such a rich flavor combination."

"An excellent matcha, though the ginger flavor could have been a bit more pronounced. Still I really enjoyed this blend."

Art of Tea Velvet Tea

6.5/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Nina Nina's review:
"It is decently enjoyable, but nothing that I would go out of my way to actually purchase on my own. I am not sure I would recommend it, but it was a decent sweet tea sip if you aren't expecting to actually taste the chocolate, vanilla, or mint."

      6.5/10
Teaviews Member: Lea Lea's review:
"A rich, complex tea with a delicious mix of chocolate, sweet mint and vanilla. I would recommend this blend."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"A blend of many ingredients that should be delicious, but it just doesn't quite come together. It needs a bit of sugar just to make it drinkable."

Art of Tea Plum Oolong

6.3/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Stephen Stephen's review:
"A fine tea, if you look at it as a fruit infusion... you simply can't taste the oolong in this blend, the fruit flavors just overpower everything else."

      7/10
Teaviews Member: Lea Lea's review:
"The flavors here are ok, but I couldn't get past the awful aroma of this tea... like old-fruit and vinegar. I didn't enjoy it at all."

      4/10
Teaviews Member: Shane Shane's review:
"A complimentary and subtle plum essence pairs nicely with these oolong leaves. Not a strongly-flavored tea at all, but naturally sweet. I loved it."

Art of Tea Eisai's Choice Sencha

Teaviews Member: Shane Shane's review:
"More floral-tasting, instead of the vegetal taste most sencha fans will be looking for... these leaves didn't hold up well for multiple infusions."

Art of Tea TNT Sleeping Beautea

4/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Lea Lea's review:
"The licorice, which should be a primary flavor here, is barely even detectable. What's left is grassy and vegetal, and not particularly inspiring."
