I wish I would have read the tasting notes for this tea. This tea is similar to Harney & Son’s Cinnamon tea because it is sweet and has a very strong cinnamon flavor. Personally, the tea was too overpowering for me, but I was glad I got to try it from a recent swap with Suziqzer
Mmmm oh man, if you steep green tea just right, it’s like drinking warm melted butter.
My first tasting notes on this tea weren’t that flattering, because I didn’t know how to steep green tea properly then. I’ve come such a long way! Yayyy!
I like this blend a lot better at 175 degrees F.
I’m also seriously craving green tea today for some reason. This is my fourth helping.
Smooth, lemony, earthy. Just what I want in a nice cup of bedtime green tea.
This was formerly known as Good Earth Original Decaf, and now is called Sweet and Spicy Decaf. It is also available in an organic version. This tea is an old time favorite of mine in the fall and winter season to enjoy at night. It is magnificently warming in it’s perfect balance of being both spicy and sweet, and is much like red chai. It actually warms up my chest, and is so pleasantly sweet that there is no need to add anything to it. I detect mostly cinnamon and orange with a mellow ginger zing. It doesn’t need to be steeped more than a few minutes to get a very full robust flavor. I find Celestial Seasonings “Bengal Spice” to be quite close to this flavor, but I favor Good Earth a bit more.
My friend gave me a couple bags of this to try after visiting her house. I have to say that I love it! The taste definitely reminds me of a cold day and needing something good to put your hands around and warm up to.
It’s sweet, but not over bearing, and the cinnamon brings in a really nice spice to it. It really lives up to it’s name I guess! This is a great alternative to chai tea I would have, but not want to make a latte out of.
No additives needed! If anything I think they’d take away from what this has going naturally.
This is another favorite for when I have to make do with bagged green tea. It’s forgiving with the water temperature and doesn’t taste bitter like a lot of bagged green tea. It’s light, and the lemon grass adds a nice flavor to it. Perfect for when I have to travel and can only take bagged tea along. With a low enough water temperature I leave it in the mug steeping as long as I can for extra lemon grass flavor.
Superfruit White Tea- Mangosteen with Mango by Good Earth Tea is made from a yummy combination of ingredients; White Tea, Rosehips, Natural Mango Flavor, Blackberry Leaves, Mangosteen Peel, Hibiscus, Chamomile, Star Anise, Mangosteen Extract and Grapeseed Extract. The aroma of this teabag is deliciously sweet and as expected, very fruity. The mangosteen smells syrupy and the mango gives a tropical and musky undertone indicative of mangoes. Sadly I do not pick up any aroma of the tea itself, or any of the other ingredients, just the heavy aroma of tropical fruit. Ok, really though, I am not complaining since these are two of my favorite fruits (as stated earlier).
Once I place the teabag into the water the room is instantly transformed into a tropical fruit basket. It is incredibly sweet smelling, almost too much so. I worry that drinking this tea will be like drinking the fruit syrup that canned fruits are kept in, tasty if you are craving it, but not good as a tea. I think this has to be the sweetest smelling tea I have ever had the honor of sniffing.
Enough steeping and time for the sweet tropical goodness. Or not. This tea is not at all sweet! I feel slightly betrayed after all that syrupy build up. The taste is a blend of tart and herbaceous, a mixture of chamomile and what I can assume is Bai Mu Dan since it tastes similar to its flavor profile. There is also a very mild woodsy taste which blends well with the chamomile and white tea flavors. The aftertaste is that of mangosteen which is better than none at all. It might seem like I am being unfairly disappointed, but that aroma was so intensely sweet and for the taste to have no sweetness at all really does feel like a letdown. The flavors in a vacuum without the aroma to compare it to are not bad, nothing too spectacular though.
[Backlog] – I picked up a box of this tea because I had heard good things. It smells like Christmas right out of the box and seemed so promising! I noticed that it gave up its flavor and color quite fast. The cup was incredibly overwhelming with spice and sweetness. It’s the kind of syrupy sweetness that coats the tongue. I simply couldn’t get past a few sips. My brothers really enjoy this tea, though, so I happily gave them the rest of the box. I can see why this tea is a hit with some, but it’s just too strong for me!
The aroma of this tea is very strongly cinnamon which, if you enjoy that smell is a good thing. Sadly I do not detect any of the other spices or ingredient listed (sad, since I think a nice hint of orange as promised would have been great)
The flavor is also primarily cinnamon and I can maybe just barely taste the rooibus. I love cinnamon but I am sad that you cannot taste anything else in the blend. The aftertaste is slightly bitter which I assume is from the Chicory.
Overall I was not very impressed by this tea but I did still enjoy it.
Ch3eeyPrin3ss Sent me this one a while ago and i found it at work and made ice tea with it since its 98 Degrees and rising here in Maryland. the smell is amazing but without a little sweatner there is really no taste but with the sweetner there is that blueberry tast its very nice Not to strong but very enjoyable on a hot summers day :)
Sipdown! (I think…)
Used my last bag of this today. It’s quite good for a CTC supermarket tea, but I’m not really sure how to rate this compared to the unadulterated teas I’ve logged. (I brew this strong to take milk & sugar, and it’s kind of disgusting at that strength without the additions.) Anyway, it’s a solid breakfast tea, brisk and sturdy. I liked it, but not so much that I’d seek it out specifically.
I usually drink a Celestial Seasonings Sweet Coconut Chai if I am craving chai, but I just found this in my cupboard and thought it would make a great chai latte. I steeped it extra long (5-6 minutes) since I wanted the stronger flavor. The scent of the tea bag itself lacks the scent of typical chai, but did have a strong spice. The brewed tea was pretty much more of the same. It didn’t taste like chai, just a mix of different spices with a very minor hint of chocolate that you have to strain to taste. The predominant taste was the spice mix, which just did not taste right. I added some creamer and a bit of sugar, but the flavor did not improve. I was only able to have a few sips, before I started dreading the next sip. It also did not sit too well with my stomach. Overall, very disappointing.
