So I rely on bagged tea at work, mostly because I don’t have my sh** together enough to carefully steep the good stuff at my desk. I also tend to forget about my drinks while engrossed in spreadsheets or busy putting out fires (literally, today – as someone left plastic trays sitting on a live stovetop burner). So I oversteeped the hell out of this first cup. So please keep that in mind if you read this note. Sorry.
Wow. This is soo sweet. What is it that does that? It’s not sugary-sucrose sweet, it’s not that thick of a sugary assault on my tongue. It swishes around in my mouth feeling thin and liquidy saying “i’m sweeeet!” – if that makes any sense at all. It’s like the Aveda tea type of sweet. Is that the anise?
What saves it is the cinnamon and spiciness. It’s definitely there, warming (almost tingling) the back of my mouth as I swallow. I can see where this would be a good tea coming in out of the cold in the fall/winter. I think I’ll try this again, keeping a better eye on it. I doubt this will be one I reach for often, but since I have a box, it’ll be nice when the occasion calls for it…
I love a good, spicy chai, and this one just sort of falls flat for me. If you like a mild chai without much kick to it, this is your chai. But if you’re going to spend the money and want something with real flavor, but still in the grocery store, grab the Tazo Chai instead.
Second tasting note, backlogged from last night. Love the rooibos, vanilla and caramel smoothness, but this time I really noticed the hint of anise. Pretty unexpected, and I’m not a fan of anise, but it really worked. Too bad I don’t have much more of this in my cupboard.
ohhh this one is great, but hard to find. My mom looked for it for ages…maybe it was the packaging change. I found a store that was getting rid of all their old packaging ones so I bought them out haha. This tea is really nice, love the peach tones. If I’m going for a non-looseleaf tea, I like this one.
Tried some Sweet & Spicy Red Tea this morning. I’m usually not a fan of herbal teas, but this tea has a good flavor. The cinnamon flavor really helps warm you up on a cold morning and the aroma is absolutely amazing. The only issue I have with this tea is that it’s a little too sweet for my tastes (I rarely add sugar to my teas).
For a bagged tea, this is an excellent choice. It’s spicy and distinctively robust and flavorful. I first disovered this tea about 15 years ago while visiting a friend in California and took lots of it back home to my pedestrian town where Lipton was virtually the only tea on offer. I have a sentimental fondess for Good Earth Original because it was the first really “big” taste of tea I had.
The cinnamon and orange notes stand out above the rest. I would recommend this for those times when you need a bagged tea—and they do come up. The individually packaged tea bags maintain their flavor for a long time.
Good with milk, although milk is not essential. Good Earth Teas appear to have a great policy about sustainability and doing good works with their profits, which is another reason to support them.
Absolutely one of my favorite teas EVER! It’s so simple: green tea, lemon grass, ‘natural flavors’ (okay, maybe not so simple). But the blend is a wonderful, citrusy flavorful adventure.
This tea started my love affair with lemongrass herbal teas. I did run out, however, so I went so far as to swipe a leaf of lemongrass bush from our local conservatory. Sssh! Don’t tell them. It was delicious though, so I have to compliment their craftsmanship.
I have found one of my favorites if green tea. I was in the search for a lemongrass one without a lot of bells and whistles. It delicately touches the pallet making it enjoyable plain or adding some lemon juice with honey (I mainly add this when sour throat or cough entraps me). You can find this always in my cupboard ready to steep.
I bought this because I had a coupon, but I don;t think I’ll buy this again. Any cocoa is barely perceptable — it’s as if the ingredients in here may have been cocoa in a previous life. Very thin tasting, even after brewing for nearly 10 minutes. It’s hot and it’s wet and helps digest dinner. Other than that, FEH.
I’m admittedly a bit of a noob when it comes to judging rooibos teas, so any of my comments should be taken with several grains of salt. My impression of this tea is that it has a “medicinal” quality that is alternately soothing and irritating. The aftertaste, to me, is a little bit like alcohol…!
It’s an interesting flavor…not sweet at all; it paired well with a gingerbread lebkuchen…
Like the monks who toil over lush gardens of fresh leafy flavors, consider the possibilities of pouring piping hot boiling water over actual dried leaves of tea…the ones that you can actually distinguish as leaves. It has been whispered through the halls of the time-tested tea wisdom of our elders, that tea’s true flavor is derived from the oil of the leaves as they gently relinquish their essence in defeat to their defeator, boiling water…therefore one may deduce that the absence of tea leaves, means the absence of flavor as well.
This tea has a REALLY potent smell that’s almost all spice, and is balanced by the taste which is almost all sweet. It’s a great combo, and makes for a nice cup that can be steeped a few times if needed. That said, I think I should have steeped this for less time to smooth out the sweetness, as it was almost too sweet and makes you pucker up a bit with each sip. Definitely one that I can see myself drinking more of though, and especially on a cold and rainy day.
