I posted a review the other day of The True Tea club, and how I was not really impressed with them. I ordered a sampler of teas from The Republic of Tea, and so far, I am liking them much better.
Sampler packs are a great way to not only discover new tea, but to be sure that you like something without buying an entire box, only to discover you hate it. I decided to get their 12 count tea bag gift sampler. They have other sampler packs available also, so you can tailor them to your taste.
The samples came in a cute little box. No excelsior! The tea bags are round with no tags or staples and are easy to use.
I have tried a couple of the flavors I ordered, and so far, I really like them. I should have looked up the ingredients list before ordering, as one of the teas contained barley malt and chicory root (I know, shame on me!). The other teas I received checked out okay as far as dietary ingredients I need to avoid.
So far I have sampled:
Both have really nice flavors. The banana chocolate is especially interesting and really tastes like bananas. It is made with Rooibos tea. The caramel vanilla has a pleasant vanilla taste and is made with black tea. It is hard for me to find herbal teas locally that I can drink and that I like. This is a great way to find new herbal and also decaffeinated teas.
If you are looking for a way to sample a nice variety of tea with no commitment, then the Republic of Tea is the way to go!
