5 Teas for People Who Don’t Normally Like Tea – Tea lovers like ourselves have a hard time imagining how anyone could shrink away at the thought of a sinfully smooth, perfectly steeped cup of tea, but tea doesn’t agree with everyone. We all have that friend that turns their nose up at tea-based beverages (an opinion we disagree with, but tolerate). Perhaps their reservations formed from a history of low-quality teas and improper steeping, or perhaps it’s just simply—excuse our pun—not their cup of tea.

This sweet cinnamon-spiced tea has a unique flavor profile that makes it stand out among its fellow black tea blends. The flavor of high-quality black tea is transformed by a combination of heavy cinnamon, sweet cloves, and orange peel. Its pleasant spiciness and desserty fullness make it a great black tea for beginners. Nothing needs to be added to the blend; it packs a brilliantly bold flavor all on its own!
This delightfully tangy tea holds the crown for Tin Roof Teas’ best-selling fruit tea blend. Mango Tango is a tisane, meaning it isn’t blended together with any leaves from the camellia sinensis plant. That’s what gives teas their “tea flavor.” Mango Tango is pure fruit—blended from pieces of mango, oranges, pineapple, and other kinds of citrus. This tea brews up into a flavorful beverage, both refreshing and summery. Plus, it has no tea-like aftertaste!
Le Toureg is a blend of high-quality Chinese green tea with peppermint oil. The liberal use of peppermint brings forth an unexpected flavor combo, giving this tea a cool, refreshing taste. The peppermint flavor in this drink is exceptionally strong, and it brings out the natural sweetness of the green tea. Even if green tea isn’t usually your thing, you might find yourself pleasantly surprised with this tea.
As one of our fastest-selling herbal tea blends, Rip Van Winkle gets its fame from its mellow, yet flavorful blend of herbs. It is just a tad sweet, with a chamomile base and a touch of mint, lavender, and lemon. It’s calming, hydrating, and good for you—without any kind of medicinal taste.
Passionately Peach is a wonderfully flexible fruit tea. It tastes great hot or iced, and makes an enjoyable drink no matter the season. Passionately Peach is sweet and fruity with a slight tartness to it. With a blend that includes peaches, berries, papaya, and hibiscus leaves, it packs a powerful flavor punch! This is a go-to tea for both long-time tea drinkers and for those not as acclimated to teas. This peach-berry twist is sure to win anyone over!
