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.
I like this tea, especially when I’m not feeling well, because it just tastes healthy. I’ve noticed the matcha is not evenly divided between the tea bags – sometimes they are covered in green powder and sometimes it looks like an average tea bag – no matcha in sight. I like to enjoy this tea when I need a little boost or feel like I could use some vitamin C. It’s an enjoyable tea, although I wish every bag had matcha. I miss the little quotes that used to be on the tea – now it’s a blank white tag.
I got lucky tonight and got a bag that was bright green with matcha – yum!
This is what started it all. I started drinking this tea when I was a little girl living in Pasadena, CA where the original Good Earth restaurants used to be. We always ordered this tea when we ate there and always had it in stock at home. I love the sweet combination of cinnamon and mint. It gives me fond memories
I don’t know what it about this one but I really didn’t like it. It was way too bland for me. I don’t know if maybe the one I had was old since all the other reviews are talking about strong flavors. Also the sweetness in it was really fake tasting to me. Also looking at the ingredients listed for this tea here on steepster is different then on the bag I had it listed artificial flavoring. I normally like honeybush blends but this one for me was just bad…
I picked up this tea at the grocery store after I was done at the thrift store. (I actually found a really pretty bone China tea cup and a gold colored framed photo of a tea cup and it said “tea time.” How cute is that?!) Sorry back to my tasting note! ;) This was my first time trying a tea from Good Earth! I love how it smelled while it was steeping! So refreshing! I loved how well I could taste the lemongrass! It has a light sweetness to it that is really enjoyable! I can’t wait to try more teas from Good Earth because I really loved this one! ♥
I picked this up on a whim last week. I don’t mind the occasional ‘fruity’ tea, while I prefer spicy, and I like mangos. That said I found the artificial mango flavor and scent completely overwhelming. I could barely finish the cup. I actually feel guilty, but I’m going to throw the rest of the box in the trash.
When it comes to me and tea, the spicier the better. One of my favorite parts of my workday is opening my desk drawer to be greeting with the smell of cinnamon. I could conceivably just sit and sniff the bag all morning. This is my all day, every day staple. I am finding, however, that since I discovered loose tea all bagged teas taste a little artificial to me. Oh well, no matter. Not as delicious as some of the loose cinnamon teas I’ve tried, but definitely still my go-to at work where loose is not currently an option.
This is my one exception (so far) to my no mint policy. It is extremely strong, and tastes of sweet cinnamon and peppermint. There are other flavours, but they tend to become overpowered the way I drink this tea. I brew it in a thermos (just leave the tea bag in there for hours) when I go hiking or snowshoeing, as it’s a perfect pick-me-up after being out in the cold for a couple hours. Yum!
