I was recently staying at a hotel that had a variety of teas so I thought I’d grab one. I ended up bringing it back home and tried it at work. Maybe it was the travel or maybe it was old, but the scent was less lemongrass and more lawnmower. It wasn’t terribly pleasant.
18 Tasting Notes
This is okay for an echinacea tea. I prefer the one by Celestial Seasonings more (besides a better taste, it includes zinc, another really good supplement for cold prevention), but this gets the job done.
I didn’t have super high expectations for this tea, but was pleasantly surprised. The ingredients say 100% chamomile, so I guess I just like chamomile in general.
The troubles with the tea bags continue. With very little force I tugged on the tea tag to lift it out of the cup and the string pulled right out of the bag.
I thought this was quite an enjoyable cup of tea. My hubby is not a fan of many teas and he really liked this one. I steeped it according to the package directions but may go longer to try and get more of the caramel flavor.
This is a really tasty way to drink your maté. My only complaint is that the tea bags themselves don’t lend themselves to squeezing. One time I squeezed the bag after steeping and it came open slightly, letting the contents escape into my mug. I don’t think I squeezed any harder than usual, but perhaps.
I use this when I’m feeling a cold coming on – I swear by echinacea and zinc as cold prevention remedies so this just makes a good addition to the supplements I already take. This is nice when you’re feeling a bit crummy and a hot cup of tea sounds good. I actually find it very similar to the Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer, but perhaps a bit more minty in the aftertaste. I don’t drink this very often because I prefer to have it on hand when I feel like I’m catching a cold.
I needed a new tea for the office and thought I’d try out the infamous Morning Thunder from Seinfeld. The roasted, smoky flavor is really intriguing. It made me feel quite alert yet relaxed at the same time if that’s possible. I’m definitely developing a taste for maté.
I am an herbal fan so I really enjoy this one. I’ve found (by accident) that the longer you steep, the sweeter it gets. I don’t have to cover it up with sweetener. It’s definitely heavier on the ‘cinnamon spice’ component than the apple component.

I picked up this tea to make a riff on a mojito. I loved the smell, but when I brewed it up, it just tasted weird to me. I thought perhaps I steeped it too long, so I tried less time. Still didn’t like it.
I find this tea much more palatable as an iced version. I do most of my tea drinking at work so I’ll put a bag in my mug overnight with water cooler water and pop it in the fridge. When I get back in the morning I have a very refreshing cup of tea.
I kinda liked it. It was in my hotel room on a recent trip so I thought I’d give it a shot. It was shocking to my taste buds, but in a good way. It kind of wakes you up. Not sure if I’d buy it though.
At first, the flavor of this tea was somewhat off-putting, but then I began to really crave the smooth sweetness that the licorice provides. It was this tea that got me hooked on licorice!
This is an old standby for me. I like the spicy and minty flavors and do find it to be soothing.

I normally like Stash teas and since I liked the Organic India licorice tea so much I went on a limb and bought a 100pack of this from Amazon.
I LOVE it. It’s really a treat and very fragrant. When I brew a cup and take it into a meeting, my coworkers always ask what smells so good. It’s a very smooth tasting tea with a pleasant aftertaste. If you’re into licorice you will really like this tea. I managed to make it through the whole 100 bags.
