drank Choco by Yogi Tea

Oh yes. Oh very yes. For those who loved a certain cacao tea that was more Mexican hot chocolate than cacao, this is your new replacement. It is mine! A mix between a Chai and cacao, with vanilla and barley thrown in… Delicious.

Sounds yummy, especially with the barley!

Totally! I burnt through a couple boxes of these when I lived in Europe. Kind of miss it.

Smells amazing, tastes quite lovely, although that syrup “flavoring” didn’t add anything that I noticed. Drying as the cup cooled. It’s good, but not in love.

drank Sweet Chilli by Higher Living

Something made this bitter after I stepped it too long (the cinnamon, is that even possible?) but otherwise this is a lovely, rich tea, with only a hint of heat. A new favorite treat.

OMGsrsly

Not like Kapha Organic? :D

MissB

Nope, nothing anywhere near as spicy as that!

drank Lime and Ginger Sensation by Twinings
1157 tasting notes

Really liking this, although it’s more lime than anything – even with a steep so long, the water is ice cold. There’s a hint of ginger, but not enough for me to say, “YES! GINGER!” I loves me my ginger. Would I drink this again? Definitely. Likely often, if I had access to it.

Flavors: Ginger, Lime, Sweet, Thick

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Three Ginger by Pukka
1157 tasting notes

I left this to steep at least an hour, in the hopes it would make me feel better. Oh gosh, this is a great ginger tea. It’s very spicy, with several layers to the heat and flavors. Mind you, you’d have to love turmeric to love this as well – it’s almost more a turmeric tea than a ginger one at this point. Regardless, I love it – I think my new favorite ginger tea.

Flavors: Ginger

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Detox by Marks & Spencer Tea

Surprisingly tasty, more so unsweetened. Very minty with a hint of hay/medicinal taste to it, I could easily drink this all day when not feeling great (like today).

Flavors: Dandelion, Hay, Mint

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Lemon & Ginger by Barry's Tea
1157 tasting notes

Wish I’d written down the ingredient list on this one; I’ll just have to grab more! This is box #2 so far of this, and I’m finding it a decent, if boring, cuppa before bed. Why this tea? Well, in Ireland, this is what’s readily available in every corner store without any sort of caffeination, and I love both ginger and lemon. Nothing fancy (nor expensive), I can count on this to settle me.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

i really need to try the one you sent

MissB

You do! I’m pretty sure this is the one I sent… could be wrong though.

drank Apple Crunch by Twinings
1157 tasting notes

This definitely tastes like a crisp, green apple. If you like apple tea, I’d put this at the top of the list to try, especially at the price point. Apple tea isn’t terribly high on my list though (unless perhaps it’s a baked apple crumble), so my rating is just okay.

Flavors: Green Apple

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Sounds good, but the ingredient list looks frightening, haha.

OMGsrsly

Wait, white hibiscus, what?!

MissB

Yea, both white and regular hibiscus listed in this one.

drank Morning Detox (Detox) by Twinings
1157 tasting notes

Hm. It’s okay. I mean, for an herbal tea that’s meant to be medicinal as opposed to tasty. Really drying on the tongue, smells a bit like lemon, sweetened has a faint hay-like lemon taste.

Flavors: Hay, Lemon

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Toffee by Harrods
1157 tasting notes

Thick, almost syrupy brew in hard water. Tastes like a strong, solid black tea, with a weird (although authentic, I’d say) toffee flavoring. Needed some sweetening to make the flavors pop though.

Flavors: Thick, Toffee

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Profile

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
