My kids were also very excited to try these teas, and my son was the first to try them! He tried to Rooibos Chai, and soon we were all trying it. It smelled amazing, my son thought it smelled like a spicy candle, lol. Being a man of many words, he said it tasted "very good". I loved the gingery smell it had to it, and it was veery soothing!
My daughter's fave was the Green Tea. She loves her Korean Green Tea, so that was the first on her list to try! She quickly called dibs, and none of us got to have any!!
Myself, I liked the Wild Forest Black Tea. I am a creature of habit, and usually stick to Black Tea, and this didn't let me down!

CHOICE ORGANIC TEAS ADDS NORTH AMERICAN TEA CHAMPIONSHIPS AWARD TO ITS GROWING LIST OF ACCOLADES
Seattle, WA (December 2012) — Choice Organic Teas continues to expand its illustrious list of accolades with its most recent recognition in the North American Tea Championship. The company won First Place for its Genmaicha tea in the Green Tea Blended/Flavored Tea category and Third Place for its Wild Forest Black tea in the Black Tea category. As a winner, Choice Organic Teas will showcase its teas in the North American Tea Championship Tasting Winners’ Circle at the World Tea Expo and World Tea Fest in 2013.
Choice Organic Teas was subjected to rigorous testing by a judging panel of professional cuppers. Each submission was assessed through blind organoleptic analysis of the following characteristics: brewed color; brewed aroma; brewed flavor; brewed mouth-feel; brewed harmony. The ratings of each characteristic were then used to calculate an overall numerical value on a 100-point scale, and winners were determined by rank.
“We’re extremely proud of this important recognition in the tea industry,” says Anne-Marie Phillips, Head of Sales and Marketing at Choice Organic Teas. “It further validates our commitment to the highest quality and best tasting teas on the market.”
In addition to this award, Choice Organic Teas has recently received a number of other awards such as the Vegetarian Times Foodie Award for its Jasmine Green Tea, Delicious Living Editors Choice for Jasmine Green Tea, Responsible Packaging Award, and was named a 2012 Washington Green 50 company.
I highly recommend this tea! You cannot beat the all natural ingredients and the fresh, clean taste! Perfect for this time of the year, on a cold evening! I am actually about to make myself a cup of the Black Tea now!
I was provided with these teas for the purposes of this review, good or bad, but was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own, if I didn't like it, you would know it :)
