The NecessiTeas Vanilla Cola

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"If you forgive the lack of carbonation and sip this with your eyes closed and your mind focused, you could easily swear that you are drinking a Vanilla Coke."

"The fact that it lacks carbonation and it's hot somehow doesn't detract from the realism of the smooth, creamy flavour."

"At first I have to admit I didn't think this sounded appealing. Vanilla Cola rooibos? That would surely have to taste like strange, flat soda pop."

"I can hardly find the proper adjective to describe the pinnacle deliciousness of the aromas and flavours that Vanilla Cola offers. Once again, the NecessiTeas is offered well earned praise. "

"Besides the real thing, I don't think you could get much closer to the flavor of a cherry-vanilla cola. The flavor is just about spot-on, and it is only the lack of carbonation that makes it distinguishable from the real deal. "

The NecessiTeas Rockin' Moroccan Mint

8/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"Because the water cannot be too hot and the infusion time is relatively short at 2-3 minutes, I would also suggest taking a spoon and stirring the leaves a bit before releasing the liquid into the cup as this will allow the chocolate chips to dissolve a bit better flavor the cup. "

The NecessiTeas Raspberry Jasmine

Read review »
      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
" The raspberry and jasmine play beautifully together. The raspberry is sweet a raspberry (no hibiscus in here and I am quite happy about it's absence) that is more reminiscent of a raspberry preserve. The jasmine is present, but not strong and cloying. It adds a bit of dryness to the cup that is nicely complemented by the juiciness of the sweet raspberry flavor. "

The Necessiteas Cranberry Autumn Green

7.4/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"More orange rind and vanilla, in a candle and shampoo kind of way, the diffuse personality of the cranberry doesn’t quite bring home the fruitiness into the sip."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The tea is nicely flavored with lots of cranberry tartness, but the overall effect is not too bold. It does remain a little tart on the finish, but overall, it is an interesting cup and a well-blended combination of flavors. "
