These are looseleaf teas, so you’ll need to brew them the old-fashioned way. The old fashioned way tastes so much better you’ll hate tea bags for life…according to Thinkgeek. Each container includes enough looselead teas to make about 10 cups.

Price: $17.99
Site: Direct Tea Link or ThinkGeek.com

Now for the review.

Pirate Chai

Pirate Chai (spiced black tea guaranteed to fight off scurvy)
Smell:Before it’s even brewed you can smell the spices and pick up a scent of cinnamon. After it was brewed the taste was pretty subtle.
Taste:The overall flavor is warm and slightly spicy and not quite overpowering.

Tea Earl Grey Hot

Tea Earl Grey (black tea with bergamot, choice of the best Starfleet captain)
Smell:This one is a little milder smelling than the Chai. It gives off more of a mellow vibe.The loose leaves are all black.
Taste:The taste has a milder taste than the Chai. It’s like another version of it for people who aren’t a fan of the spices. Also it tastes just like how you would expect hot tea to taste like. It’s a little different from just regular tea. Overall pretty good.

Zombie Blood Orange

Zombie Blood Orange (caffeine-free herbal tea blend of blood orange and sour apple)
Smell:This one smells more on the orange sweet side.
Taste:This is an interesting blend of flavors. This one has more of a sweet flavor to it. We are picking up more the sour apple and a little hint of cinnamon.

Jasmine Tea

Timmy’s 1UP Jasmine Green (sweet and intoxicating like the feeling of having multiple lives)
Smell:Floral and lavender soothing.
Taste:This one is more on the mild side. It’s both sweet and resembles green tea. Tastes like flowers even though that might seem a strange way to describe it.

Overall:5 stars
These teas are a nice set for any tea drinker whether you are just starting out or not. It covers just about all the flavors as far was spicy to sweet and mild.
