Backlog from March 31, 2015:

I’m terribly behind on adding my tasting notes here, but I promise I do have them all written down in my little notebook. I’m slowly working through the list. Here is a quick blurb that I wrote down but forgot to log back in March.

My husband keeps telling me that I need to try this tea because he really loved the one bag of this that he’s tried so far. It smells fantastic, like chamomile and sweet, ripe fruit. Unfortunately, it has a bit of an artificial flavor. It’s not really sweet on its own so I added a little extra honey which is also helping to improve the flavor. I’m not sure it tastes as good as it smells, but it’s still enjoyable.

Flavors: Artificial, Fruity, Sweet

As far as medicinal teas go, the Celestial Seasonings blends work pretty well and don’t taste like punishments.

This allergy season has been atrocious. I don’t even HAVE allergies normally, but this season I apparently do. I enjoy tulsi and can safely identify all of the other ingredients in this tea, so even if it doesn’t help with the sinus irritation I’ve been dealing with for weeks now, it at least tastes familiar and is soothing to drink right before bed.

That sucks about the allergies. :(

This has been a rough year, allergy wise, for sure. I’ve been guzzling Nettles, spraying homeopathic stuff up my nose, & I have gotten relief, but there’s always some new pollen in the air…

It’s definitely been a sniffly spring. Still, I’ll take it over snow any day!

My go to tea when I feel sick – it has a nice peppermint and ginger taste. I generally don’t enjoy chamomile teas, but this one definitely has a nice calm and subtle taste.

as soon as I opened this it smelled just like I was cooking ginger snap cookies! And honestly, that’s the best way I can describe the flavor as well. The spice/flavor isn’t quite as strong as I’d like, but I added a bit of ginger and cinnamon of my own to remedy that, which helped out a lot. I haven’t tried it with milk yet, but I imagine it’d be pretty tasty!

Year Round favorite. I love that its green, doesn’t require sweetener and never gets bitter no matter how long you leave in the tea bag. Decaf is easy on my stomach as well. Smells so delicious

Picked this one up the other day since I love peach teas and it’s an herbal, plus these are the kinds of teas that my family really likes so I give it to them if I hate it, or if sometimes I don’t hate it since they just like this brand of tea.
I really do like some of their teas, just not tons I guess.
Was kinda expecting it to be more peachy.
But it just tasted more kinda artificial and kinda like the outside of the peach. The skin or whatever. I mean it has a lot of flavor. But not that right peach for me. I know my family will like it though so that’s great for them! :D

Flavors: Artificial, Peach, Sweet

A good and simple rooibos blend. Brews to a kind of intense color for some reason. Great to have on hand as a relaxing, caffeine free option.

I honestly did not like this at all. It tasted so much like medicine that i just had to dump it half way through. It sure isn’t my taste.

I’ve never really liked cherry flavoured products as they tend to remind me of cough syrup. This one does still have that cherry flavour i don’t like; putting that aside the tea itself is fairly average tasting herbal tea. This was a freebie so not too upset about not liking it too much. I think I’ll use up the rest in a tea cocktail; the cherry will probably taste better cold.

I had this for the first time last summer, and I was craving a sweet berry tea, so I used two tea bags and made a strong brew! Just by itself, it was a little sour but I added lots of ice and sugar and it was delicious. :) it’s pretty good as a cup of warm tea after school too!

Just got back from having Vietnamese pho, and wanted something fruity but not fussy, so a fruity tea it was! Having this in tea bag form also means I don’t have to clean out my infuser…can you tell I’m feeling pretty lazy at this point in time? My excuse is I did a bunch of chores already today so this is my time to relax before next week’s craziness starts.

This is a raspberry flavoured tea with hibiscus, its interesting to watch this steep in a glass, because you can see the tea steep out due to the red colour of the ingredients. The taste is slightly tart, with a hint of sweetness. Its not the best quality tea imo – the flavour reminds me a bit of cherry / cranberry rather than just raspberry, and the hibiscus floralness confuses things.

Bought after hearing a friend mention it as we were discussing our favorite chai teas. I’d never tried it before, as I was a Tazo chai drinker. But, this tea is really something. Love that I don’t have to add sweetener to it. I think it’s the cinnamon, and the licorice that’s no longer listed on the box. This tea snob will most likely purchase this again.

Sample from Nichole. Thank you!

I might have liked this if it wasn’t pre-sweetened. As it it, I find it too sweet, so I’ll be passing it along to someone else.

Nichole

I made mine a latte. . it was much better that way. I still have 3 boxes of it :)

gmathis

I doubled up with a bag of plain black breakfast tea and that cut the sweetness a bit.

rosebudmelissa

I sent some off to a friend, but I’ll have to try out these suggestions.

The scent is strong something I love. And the taste is perfect for me. It leaves that cooling feeling that I love when I eat pepermints that just makes this one satisfying tea for me

This tea isn’t the best flavor wise, but it never fails to help me when I’m sick. I woke up this morning with a horrible sore throat and a lot of sinus pressure, so I whipped up a cup of this tea. As always, I felt relief.

Tea purchased in the grocery store yesterday. I am still having problems sleeping so need to find more decaf options until this crisis is over. :P

I don’t see the point in paying a lot of money for a decaf tea because they aren’t usually that tasty anyway. THis blend is ok though. From the name, you would think its all fruit flavor, but there is also spearmint and lemongrass in the blend. So it’s more of an herbly, minty, fruity kind of flavor. I found it fairly mild and refreshing, Definitely nothing to rave over but it will serve the purpose of helping me sleep better.

I put two of the teabags in the fridge to try cold brewing them. I think this will be a bit better as an iced tea.

did it work ? i had quite a lot sheng yesterday. i was pretty energized before going to bed. decided to fix some shou. 3 cups later and felt so sleepy

gmathis

I think I’d like this better than the traditional lemony one! (Is it just me, or do 99% of all herbals taste minty?) Have to look for it in town.

TeaBrat

@boychik I did sleep better last night than I have in a while. Can’t drink shou at night like some of you folks, I’m so jealous!

TeaBrat

gmathis – you’re right, a lot of them are minty and i’m not often in the mood for a tea made of straight herbs anyway. this isn’t bad for a mass market product, I found mine at Safeway

This tea does NOT taste like strawberry champagne…it tastes like a strawberry jelly-filled doughnut! The strawberry flavor is quite sweet and slightly artificial and there is a distinct pastry note to the aftertaste. It’s not at all what I was expecting, but it’s actually pretty good! Not sure this is something I would buy, but I’ll happily drink the 3 sachets I have left. Thank you to The Cookie Lady for the awesome swap package…I’ve been sampling the teas she sent me all week and I still have several left to try!
