What do these spooky and cute teas taste like?

We tried the four tea bags!

The "Halloween Teabag" collection contains four tea bags with Jack-o'-lantern, skull, ghost and witch motifs, each with different tea leaves and flavors.

A tea-loving writer at our sister site Grape took home all four tea bags for a taste test.

Mysterious Cinnamon Rooibos Tea

The motif of this delightful tea is a witch. The teabag, as well as the tag in the shape of her broom, are both unmistakably cute!

You can see the witch in your cup when you infuse the tea. (Of course, it's not a trial or an ordeal, she's just enjoying a hot bath!)

The tea features the gentle taste of rooibos tea with cinnamon.

Assam Tea

This teabag is shaped like a sleeping ghost and comes with a bat-shaped tag.

The ghost seems to be sleeping peacefully and comfortably in the cup.

The tea has a refreshing blend of Assam and Kyoho grape flavors.

Roasted Pumpkin Chai Tea

This Jack-o'-lantern themed tea is perfect for Halloween. Even the tag also has a Jack-o'-lantern on it.

The tea offers a delicious blend of roasted hojicha tea and pumpkin spice!

A hint of cinnamon imparts a sweet note.

Hibiscus Blend Tea

The last item the writer tried was this impressive skull-shaped tea.

She was very curious about it because of the illustration on the package.

The tag is a black cat with wings, perhaps a witch's familiar or a demon...

When you dip the teabag into hot water...

You'll begin to see something red seeping out, just like in the illustration.

How spooky and perfect for Halloween!

In fact, it's the rosehips in the tea.

You can enjoy watching your cup gradually fill up in a beautiful crimson hue...

The writer found that it also had the sweet aroma of peach leaves.

The tea had a mellow taste which she couldn't imagine from the spooky appearance.

Sometimes, Halloween characters can have a bit of a scary image, but these teabags add a touch of cuteness.

You can enjoy these teas at Halloween home parties or just by yourself to get into the Halloween spirit!
