Teaviews Member: Erika Erika's review:
"Each sip remained pleasantly on the tongue and the apricot blended nicely with the tea, creating a fine fruity cup."

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"I think the thing that impresses me most about this blend is that the green tea is of a good quality and quite smooth. I think it is a step above what you find in most flavored green tea blends while maintaining an economical price point ($8 for a 2.9 oz jar)."

"A gentle, slightly tart, blend with a lingering, natural-tasting fruity sweetness to the finish."

      7.1/10
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
" It's not as intense as some fruit greens I've had, but the flavor is natural and tart, which I much prefer over candy-like flavorings."

Tavalon Green Tea Latte Almonds

7.5/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"The vegetal tea stands out at the start, blending perfectly into the chocolate taste, finishing off with the wonderful texture and flavour of the almond."

      7.0/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The vegetal sweetness of the green tea powder is a lovely introduction to the stronger sweetness of the chocolate and the pleasant crunch of the hidden almond at the end makes for a tasty treat. "

Tavalon Purity

7.4/10  —  8 reviews
Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
"The ingredient line up suggests gastric health, and the flavours are classic; classic like the works of Shakespeare, Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. "

"Minty, chocolaty, Caffe, Oh my!"

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"This blend is VERY refreshing iced. Both the mint and the Ceylon are strong enough to stand up an ice cube. "

Teaviews Member: Joe Joe's review:
"There is much flavor; I’m just not certain that I’m a big believer in mixing ginger and mint."

"This is a fair tea for peppermint seekers."

      5.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Good for what ails you. The quality and potency of the peppermint is just-right, and the added kick from the Ceylon is bonus."
Read review »
      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Emma Emma's review:
"This is a very high quality tea. The flavor of the peppermint is bold, but not overwhelming. The hint of ginger adds just the right oomph to the tea."

      8.5/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The peppermint featured in Purity is by far the most intense in flavor and of the highest quality that I have ever had"

Tavalon Serenity

7.4/10  —  5 reviews
Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"The taste is of a very nice chamomile tea with a pleasant minty aftertaste; this would be great just before bed, or anytime a person needed to relax."

Teaviews Member: Cindy Cindy's review:
"While a cup of tea certainly can't solve all of life's problems, this one at least helped me to put them on the back burner for tonight."

      8/10
Teaviews Member: David_A David_A's review:
"There is a wonderful balance between ingredients that have a strong personality such as the rooibos, peppermint, and vanilla. They all work well together."
Read review »
      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"By appearance, the dry blend seems to have decent representation of each herb, but when the tea is brewed, the chamomile dominates, lending its characteristic honey-apple flavor and scent to the tea."
Read review »
      6.5/10
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"Oh, Serenity, how happy I am to have found you! I have several herbal teas that are my go-to night time teas. This one will be joining them soon."

Tavalon Menage a Gummies

7.4/10  —  5 reviews
Teaviews Member: Brad Brad's review:
"This is the basic gummy candy form with a brighter, fruitier flavor."
Read review »
      7/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Tasty little bear snacks with "healthier" ingredients than your average run of the mill gummies, and 3 interesting flavors to boot. Available as individual flavors, or in the 3-flavor pack."
Read review »
      7.0/10
Teaviews Member: Nicole Nicole's review:
"They are probably the most expensive gummy bears I have ever had but I have to say that it was worth it. They are simply melt in your mouth delicious. "
Read review »
      8/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"These gummi bears were quite enjoyable, and while not remarkably different from your run-of-the-mill gummi bears, a couple of positive attributes did stand out. The flavor of these gummi bears was very genuine and they had a little more substance to them , which ultimately made me feel more satisfied."

Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"These are so novel and fun, they're great for the occasional treat or as an addition to a tea-themed gift basket."

Tavalon NYC Breakfast

7.4/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Nicole Nicole's review:
"This tea was a morning staple of mine when I was working in of all places, NYC. It is robust without being overpowering or bitter."
Read review »
      9/10
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"If you are looking for a calming early morning tea, this is probably the tea for you. It'll have enough caffeine for a bit of a pick-me-up, but the flavour is subtle enough to not be too shocking."

      5/10
Teaviews Member: Joe Joe's review:
"The tea has a taste similar to English Breakfast (surprise!). It was mild and smooth; not at all bitter."

Teaviews Member: Joe Joe's review:
"… sadly the beautiful beverage offers an unremarkable taste. "
Read review »
      6.5/10
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"This seems like a good herbal to wind down the evening with, and it is the second-best chamomile blend I have had. If you're a fan of the herb, you'll probably love this blend."

Teaviews Member: Kari Kari's review:
"This tisane had a sour sweet fruity taste. "
Read review »
      7/10
Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"The initial tartness slides into sweetness pretty quickly. I still don't taste other flavors that clearly, though it's easy to attribute the complexity of this tea to them; this isn't a single note tea."
Read review »
      7/10
Teaviews Member: Shelly Shelly's review:
"In my opinion, this was a very gourmet tea. It is the best fruit herbal I’ve ever had and I recommend it to anyone who has a hankering for a slightly sour fruity tisane."

Teaviews Member: David_A David_A's review:
"Wonderful smells of fruit and sweetness permeate this experience both out of the bag and after brewing."

Tavalon Peachy Oolong

7.3/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"The buttery, bright peach flavour and the toasty oolong play together seamlessly and complement each other well however, the richness of the delicious fragrance isn’t quite met in the brew."

Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"If you want a real version of that crazy-sweet fake peach iced tea, this is right on the money."

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The peach taste is not elusive though. It complements the oolong used nicely and does not overpower it. "

Tavalon Jasmine Dream

7.3/10  —  7 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"I think this will appeal to folks who don't like their jasmine cloying. I doubt that I will purchase this for myself, but look forward to using up the rest of my sample adding a pinch of it to this blend and a pinch of this to that blend to make more interesting cups of tea."

Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
"Quality green jasmine tea, its not concealing a secret eroticism, it is just that simple. "

Teaviews Member: Troy Troy's review:
"A great blend of Jasmine and green tea that shows both of their best qualities, while hiding their flaws."
Read review »
      8/10
Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"A tea base dominated by savoury notes coupled with a metallic tinge, particularly in the aftertaste, gives this jasmine a very dry finish. A decent cup however lacking a bit of pizazz. "
Read review »
      5.9/10
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"The ephemeral, amorous disposition of this Jasmine Dream seems especially fitting for playful afternoons envisioning one's dreamboat or the dreamy evenings of first dates. "

Teaviews Member: Christine Christine's review:
"While it's not the best jasmine tea I've had, it's definitely up there with the greats."

Teaviews Member: Nicole Nicole's review:
"This is obviously a high quality jasmine because the taste and scent last through several steepings."

Tavalon Lemongreen

7/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"The flavor is initially of lemongrass with the added depth from the green tea following afterward. The overall effect was refreshing, like a tea that might be served at a spa. "

Tavalon Margaret's Hope Darjeeling

Teaviews Member: Jenn Jenn's review:

"This is a safe investment for anyone seeking teas with a bitter hue or anyone consistently adding sugar to tea."

      5/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The tea leaves are many colored and the scenting very fresh, with faint overtones of both floral and tobacco nature."
Read review »
      8/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"When it was cooled, the tea was a bit more tolerable, with honey and muscatel notes evident. Still, however, the bitterness was overwhelming. This tea definitely needs some sugar to tone down the astringency. "

      4/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This is a highly enjoyable tea when properly brewed, perfect for a morning cup or a re-energizing late afternoon or evening boost."

Teaviews Member: Patty Patty's review:
"I am repeatedly reminded of the experience of drinking a good but not quite perfect grand cru wine. It makes it's own rules and it must be evaluated on its own terms."

Tavalon Kashmiri Chai

6.7/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Joe Joe's review:
"Chai without black tea is like salsa without jalapeños. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"Overall, this wasn't a bad chai, and while it was certainly enjoyable, it lacked anything that would qualify it as remarkable."
Read review »
      6.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"An Indian Green tea with generous almonds and varied spices - but overall too gentle to be categorized with other spiced chais. A nice nightcap with a bit of milk and sugar."

Tavalon Tropical Peony

6.6/10  —  5 reviews
Teaviews Member: Erika Erika's review:
"The first taste to greet me was the pineapple, and the coconut soon followed suit. Both blended nicely to create a mildly fruity cup."

Teaviews Member: Troy Troy's review:
"Tropical, in the mild breeze not trailer park obliterating sense."

      6/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"why go through the effort of naming a tea "tropical" and adding dried pieces of tropical fruits only to mask them with a common-place and utterly un-tropical flower? I wouldn't say that this tea was bad, it's just that it wasn't that good either."

      5.5/10
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"There is something about this blend that reminds me a bit of white wine. I guess that is probably because it is dry and fruity. "

Teaviews Member: Shaiha Shaiha's review:
"Delightful white tea complimented by coconut, pineapple and rose petals. Quick way to visit the tropics!"

Tavalon Genmai Matcha

6.5/10  —  5 reviews
Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"The difference was in the taste. Where most genmaichas make me sneer, Tavalon has found something to balance out the poor man's tea. A little bit of class."
Read review »
      6.7/10
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The matcha marries very nicely with that toasted rice flavor and provides a bit of sweet creaminess to the blend."
Read review »
      8/10
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The liquor brewed up to a medium jade and cloudy, due to the matcha. It had pull, giving a pleasant sensation of dryness, and the mix of sencha and matcha imparted a definite but not unpleasant bitter edge, especially down the sides of the tongue. But there it was again, that hint of sourness."
Read review »
      4.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"An intriguing tea that produces wildly different results with each cupping. The toasted rice and matcha powder play well together for a variety of spectral tastes."
Read review »
      6.5/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The overall flavor was intense and slightly bitter, bearing obvious contributions from both the GenMai and the matcha. The toasted rice flavor was weaker than I have noted in other teas, but that is to be expected given that this tea is not exclusively GenMai and has to share the cup with a fairly strong counterpart. The matcha smoothed out the tea and added a little sweetness, which paired quite well with the toasted rice. "

Tavalon Kama Chai Sutra

Teaviews Member: Cindy Cindy's review:
"While this was a nice enough cup of tea, it did not strike me as an excellent chai simply because the spices were too muted for my taste."

Tavalon Tealixir

6.2/10  —  5 reviews
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"This blend seems like a good remedy to keep on hand for the cold season. I don't know that it would stand out particularly from other similar concoctions, but it would be a respectable choice in the field. "

Teaviews Member: Jenn Jenn's review:
"I would have liked this to be stronger if it is going to be a wellness type tea made to specifically aid in helping one feel better when suffering with a cold."

      6.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"A nice herbal-remedy blend with good intentions -- I just think it could be improved upon. Tavalon has the ability to make a wellness blend that could top anything else on the market. They just need to keep working on achieving that goal."
