drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
902 tasting notes

If ever there was a day that I needed stress relief, it is today. I am now safely at home and, unless the zombie apocalypse comes, I plan on ignoring the vast majority of humanity.

After one (rather large) glass of wine, I’ve decided to brew up the sample of this that amandajo sent to me. Scent of the brewed “tea” is rather different…I can’t quite put my finger (nose) on it. It’s sweet-smelling, and slightly herbal, but then it’s not…

Oh, I can taste the carob. And the cinnamon. And there’s ginger, too. The spices are slightly chai-like, and I find that very lovely. It’s got a rather chocolatey taste to it.

Not sure if it’s the wine that’s mellowed me out, or if this stuff really works that fast. One thing’s for sure, I’ll be picking up a box of this the next time I see it. And will be putting bags in my purse and at my desk at work.

This is my first cuppa since I left my house this morning.

And now I’m off to a two-three hour meeting. Where there probably won’t be tea.

I’m not sure I’m getting “toast” out of this one…but I’m definitely getting the cinnamon and the butter, along with a hint of the raisin. The taste fairly screams ‘breakfast’, and I’m enjoying it this morning as I slowly convince myself that I need to get ready for work (especially since I need to be there in an hour).

The toast came off in the mouthfeel for me.

Honestly, I was barely awake when I was drinking it and couldn’t tell you the mouthfeel at all. In fact, I am quite surprised that this log made any sense at all. Seriously, I don’t remember writing it.

Oh poor Jaime!

The smell of the dry leaves is amazing…crazy fruity!! You can smell the different fruits individually.

After brewing, though, the fruits meld together so that none of them are really identifiable individually. There’s a taste that’s definitely “fruity/flowery”, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t assign it to any particular component. I ended up brewing for 5 minutes based on the dry smell (if it’s going to be fruity, I want it strong), and there’s a slightly bitter astringency that I think wouldn’t be there if I had brewed for 3 minutes. Will play around with it more.

Resteep of yesterday’s leaves…more honeybush than anything else, though there’s a slight aftertaste of banana runts. This will be a one-steeper for me.

Last cup of this tea. Very strong black tea, syrupy lichee flavor. Not sure I’ll be investing in it again, but it was good while it lasted!

Profile

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.

Lexington, Kentucky
