A little goes a long way. Mixed it with chamomile flowers from Teavana. Loved it! Used about one heaping tablespoon of chamomile to a half tablespoon of lavender.
23 Tasting Notes
First, you get a lot for your money. The tea itself consists of the entire chamomile flower, pretty. It has a great flavor and is really calming. Also, because of the mild flavor, I often mix these flowers with other loose leaf teas I have around. Yesterday I tried it with Lavender, awesome!
After several attempts to have the Tevana guy give me a rooibos that wasn’t sweet we landed here. It smelled really awesome, coconut and almond, but I was worried it would be too tropical and fruity. Actually it was sort of spicy due to the ginger and cinnamon and there was not a lot of fruit tang. Win!
Coppery color is an understatement – This tea is red! Super good for you though and great to mix with other teas. Again, I found this guy at Cub Foods. Great deal for rooibos tea.
Super cheap, but actually really good! I found this tea at Cub Foods of all places.
Has an unusual mixture of berry flavor and something that tastes like oats to me. It’s not bad.
I liked this one, it was very mild, but had a pleasant taste and smell. I guess I usually prefer my teas a little stronger. Maybe I’ll let it steep more next time.
My boyfriend buys everything and anything with goji berries in it so of course this ended up in our cupboard. We have a big bag of dried goji berries and while they are full of antioxidants, they are not super fun to eat. This tea was tart and a little fruity though. I liked it!
I don’t know why I like this one so much, but I do. Earl grey tea by itself doesn’t excite me much, but I drink this grey green stuff constantly at work. I think the grey makes it a little stronger than the rest of the Bigelow greens and that’s why I like it.
You may have noticed a trend…we have a variety pack of Bigelow Green Teas in our office. I like the lemon one, it’s sort of tart, but refreshing. Plus lemon is supposed to help curb your appetite.
If you’re from Minneapolis definitely check out the Tea Garden in Uptown. One of my favorite tea joints. My favorite is the lychee or peach green tea with pearls!
I have this sitting in my tea cupboard (and yes, I have a cupboard dedicated to just tea) but I haven’t tried it yet. Not entirely sure how to steep it…any suggestion?
If you have a sore throat or just a little tickle you can’t get rid of, this stuff really does the trick. When you’re sick you just want that warmness of tea, so why not add a little herbal medicine to the mix.
My favorite echinacea tea. I drink it even when I’m not sick because of the taste and to help boost my immune system.
So besides the obvious reasons for me trying out this tea…ahem…I was pleasantly surprised with the taste! I was a little afraid of the cardamom (don’t really enjoy the flavor), but it wasn’t too strong. A little licorice flavored, but over all it was a really nice blend. Great for bedtime!
The only reason I give this a thumbs down is because I have another echinacea tea that I perfer more than this one. Sorry Yogi! I still love you.
…I don’t know if I’ll ever give a tea a thumbs down. This one might be a thumbs sideways though. I like this tea overall, but it was a little too fruity for me personally. There was too much flower and fruit and not enough tea. If you like fruity and soothing mild tea though, I would recommend this.
A smoother, less bitter blend of jasmine and oolong.
Great to drink before bed.
It’s green tea in a bag, not my favorite tea in the world, but it will do.
Really mild, sweet, flowery. One of my favorites from Teavana!
You take what you can get at work, but for a inexpensive green tea bag this isn’t half bad. I even bought some at the store for home. Plus I like anything with mint. Refreshing!
Not as bitter as your typical jasmine loose dried leaves. Soothing, plus they come in neat little balls.
