I’m sure that all these dutch licorice teas (the two that I have) come from the same company originally, I’m just stuck as to who that is exactly, so this review stays here.

Still a satisfying cup, and one that I’m really enjoying, although overleafing it a bit seems like my favorite way to have it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Rooibos Chai by Zen Tea

Still a smooth and straightforward chai, one that I know will stand up time and time again with mistaken re-steeps as well as purposeful ones.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
940 tasting notes

Had two huge cups of this last night, and this is one huge cup using those combined leftover leaves. The re-steep isn’t anywhere near as flavorful, but it’s still quite tasty. Increasing the rating as I think this has now become a staple in my house for when I’m feeling ill or off.

Had several cups of this last night, and now another today. Every cup has varied considerably, although this one was steeped for close to an hour, it’s my favorite of the group so far. Still less gingery than the last batch, but I’m okay with that. :)

Tonight, this smells and tastes weird, and I’m puzzled as to what’s different. Last night? Divine. Tonight? Messed up, weird.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 4 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Turmeric Ginger by Rishi Tea

Oversteeped, this is just meh. A tiny bit of ginger throughout, until the end of the cup when it’s overwhelmingly ginger… probably the best part of the cup was the last sip.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Women's Tea by Pekoe Tea Lounge
940 tasting notes

I mistakenly grabbed this tonight thinking it was something else. Had it anyway, even though it’s really just an apple tea with a touch of cinnamon and herbals way in the background. Less palatable as it cools, although more… satisfying, knowing it’s an herbal, and potentially helping me feel better.

Picked this up at Winners today, sad that their tea section has gone down drastically. The name appealed to me, even though the other Pukka tea I’ve had wasn’t too great. Only after I bought it did I notice the “manuka honey flavor”, which seems counterproductive to me. Bah.

This is a very granular tea, and while I get the ginger, lemon and honey – it just tastes artificial and wrong. It’s far from horrible, it’s just far from what I wanted.

Flavors: Honey, Lemon Zest, Metallic

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Well, this is what I found when on the hunt for Tension Tamer (seems I’m out) so this is what I brewed up. Let’s hope it helps…

Profile

Bio

Teaholic, with a leaning toward rooibos, green, puerh and white teas, although I’m trying some black tea again. Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; my only (within walking distance) choices are currently mall-bound. Still, I have a whole cupboard dedicated to tea.

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.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

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.

Burnaby, BC, Canada
