I think that Good Earth was the first tea that converted me to a devoted tea drinker, over 7 years ago. I’ve sipped it now and again since, and none of the nostalgia has worn off. Reached for it this morning because I’ve been on a “serious tea” binge and needed something a little easier, with more of an emotional connection and less of an intellectual tasting. However, I left the tea bag unattended and it turned out slightly medicinal tasting.
No matter the actual quality, I know that this is a tea I’ll return to so long as Good Earth keeps making it.
A smell of strong, fresh berries greeted my nose as I ripped open the protective sachet to prepare the brew.
This cup is going to be enjoyed whilst watching football (soccer to some of you).
Colour: Deeply dark purple.
Super strong, sweet and fruity. I can taste the apple firstly which comes through quite sourly and then berries come marching in behind it with sweetness. It’s alright over all but I was hoping this one would be a little more delicate and not so much of a mixed fruit punch. Blueberry is what it’s called and blueberry is what I wanted to taste. Maybe a better name would be ‘Sour apple with mixed berries’. I keep being reminded of sweets today
This was an alright tea, I felt like having a tea bag… the smell was so strong with the chai.. it was so spicy for the smell, it put me off a little… I couldn’t really smell the cocoa in this… the taste of the tea is the exact opposite,, I can taste the cocoa, and not so much the chai.. I did add milk and sugar to tone it down though…. It was drinkable.. I did enjoy it… I wouldn’t buy it or feel the need to drink this again..
Sorry about my in-activeness recently, after my holiday to Las Vegas I have had a few minor upsets. No point in drinking my wonderful tea’s if I cannot keep them down.
I chose this one as it sounded devilishly good right now with it’s spicy and sweet blend. Only one of these tea bags to try which was a gift from an American friend of mine.
The steeping time and water temperate was as stated on the back of the packet. And as always this tea was brewed without sweetener.
Colour: Deeply brown with amberesque highlights.
Smell: Magically cinnamon with anise.
Taste: Very much like the smell the most notable is cinnamon and anise, a wonderful combination. Thinking about it I used to import a chewing gum that was identical to the fragrance that was cinnamon flavoured.
I suppose it is both sweet and spicy but with a decent balance. Very tasty for a bagged tea…I wish I had more than just the one of these bags :(
Sort of refreshing too which could be the peppermint in this tea, for having so many ingredients though it is hard to pick anything out other than the three that I have mentioned (peppermint, cinnamon and anise). Still yummy by all accounts.
A few weeks ago, I had a friend over for a tea party. Now, when I host a tea party like this, it usually means serving some of the Chinese teas I have gong fu style, since most of my friends have no experience with them. For this one fateful party, my friend brought along a lovely array of teas from her own personal stash for me to taste!
I was very excited to try them, as many of the teas were picked up in Mexico where she spends a month or two each year.
While this one was clearly not from Mexico, I was interested to try this tea in particular and, at long last… here I am!
I’m not a big fan of mango, so I wasn’t sure how I’d like this tea. The dry leaf and following the liquor were quite sweet in aroma. I was concerned that the tea itself would be too sweet for my sensibilities. However, my worries were unfounded and I discovered this to be a very mildly flavored tea.
It is sweet and tropical, but not in an overpowering way, which suits me very nicely. It almost has a coconut-y after-taste once the tea is more in the “warm” zone than hot. It’s definitely interesting. I’m not sure it’s really my style, but I’m enjoying it this morning!
Cinnamon-sweet. This is the first tea I could drink without sweetener. My office-mate back in 1999 gave me my first bag of this. It was good in the office as a break. It was probably my first experience with rooibos, too (which I why every time I taste cinnamon, I think rooibos, even though I know that’s not correct!) I haven’t been able to find it lately. I wonder if I would still like it?
Sweet and full of cinnamon, this is a tea that stands on its own (and would not go too well with most food). It needs no sugar, and is full enough of spiciness and sweetness that a large cup never gets boring. The tea flavor is somewhat overpowered by the other herbs. Some tastes linger for longer than they’re welcome, and there may be one or two too many flavors (peppermint?!) But I’m glad I have this tea, and that it doesn’t seem to have gotten worse over several years.
Some of the flavors are more enjoyable as the tea cools to luke warm, so I will have to try it iced.
This was offered at a baby shower my wife and I went to over the weekend. I’ve never had if before so…why not. I should of stayed with not. I like the effort but the whatever else they ad to the mate and black tea just doesn’t work. It’s like drinking a medicated balm. I know not to put this one in the cupboard.
Wow! This has quite the punch to it. Peppermint. Cinnamon. Licorice and there’s a sweetness that I’m not sure where it’s coming from….but I like it. This reminds me of a decaf version of Teavana’s French Quarter Spice Quartet. However the bottom the cup is tongue numbing cinnamon. It’s decent and I would probably pick it up in the store.
I grew up in Silicon Valley,California…and there were a couple of Good Earth Resturants that when you walked in the door the smell of this Good Earth Tea (the original) almost knocked you down. It brings back so many memories! (this was almost 30 years ago) Anyway….classic no sugar needed …super spicey with some citrus…serve it hot in a mug on a cold day …with a slice of whole grain zucchini bread GOOD TEA! Trust me I’m a GRANDMA! Don’t serve this tepid or weak let it go 4 minutes for the bite.
I was disappointed with this tea, because it tasted weak to me even after a decent steep, but the blend itself is fragrant and didn’t have any harsh or unpleasant flavors to it.
I’m planning to give it another go sometime, but I think I will be making it extra-strong and adding milk in the subcontinental fashion- on its own it didn’t hold up for me.
