It’s been a while since I’ve had this tea. I found it at Target one day. Since green tea is my favorite kind of tea and I like Tazo Zen, I figured I’d try this. I really enjoyed this tea for two reasons: the green yerba mate and the spearmint. First, I had yerba mate in other drinks, but never knew what it tasted like until I had this tea. It’s flavor alone is almost enough to make this a good tea. Second, I’m not a big a fan of spearmint. It is subtle in this tea and marries well with green yerba mate. Not only that, but it help cover any of the grassy bitterness that can be associated with lower quality green teas. I really enjoy this tea, but I have found a comparable taste in the Detox Tea offered by Capital Teas.

This tea tastes good, but I think the strawberry overpowers the lemon and other flavors. I drank this tea hot and imagine it would be better as a iced tea. If winter ever ends, I will try it iced and review it.

I drink a lot of tea at work. This is one of my work teas. I like to have teas with ginger or mint at work just in case I have an uneasy stomach. It’s also a plus if those teas happen to taste good. The Jammin’ Lemon Ginger tea does just that. It has a wonderful lemon scent, even before brewing. The tea also has a very balanced taste. The ginger in other lemon ginger teas I’ve had has been overpowering. That’s not the case with this tea. I would recommend this to others and definitely try to keep it on hand, especially at work.

drank African Rooibos by Twinings
6 tasting notes

I had “red tea” when I was in high school and never knew what tea leaves where used to make it. The red tea was sweet and had a mellow flavor that was slightly nutty. I like it better than many of the black teas and green teas I had had at that point. Years later, I discovered that the red tea was rooibos, a tea made from the leaves of a bushes native to South Africa.

I was fortunate enough to spend time in Cape Town, South Africa, where I began a love affair with rooibos tea. I had it several ways, but my favorite was Rooibos tea with a small amount of raw sugar. When I returned to the US, I needed to find rooibos tea. I came across Twinings African Rooibos tea.

While the African Rooibos possesses the mild sweetness and nuttiness, it is not as strong as I have had in other rooibos teas I have had. If you have not had rooibos, I think this tea is a good starting point to determine if you like the taste.

Boiling 8 min or more

I drink this at work and I think it’s a serviceable green tea. It is a bit harsh, but the addition of white tea does help tame the strong grassy flavor. Even I did not rate this tea highly, it is probably my favorite green tea that uses fannings.
