Tea to help me relax. :)
Lots of ginger, lots of tulsi, some lemon. Best with honey. And make sure you steep it with a lid on, or else the flavours tend to disappear.
Not bad, but I’ll be glad once I’ve use it up.
I just made up a litre of this iced, and I’ve chugged 3/4 of it. I think I was thirsty.
Nothing added this time. A slightly tart, delicious berry juice. I do like a little sweetener (honey!) in it, I was just lazy this time… didn’t want to deal with the 3kg bucket of honey sitting on my
dining room sewing table. (I’m sharing the honey with my brother, so I have to weight out half for me. Too lazy right now.)
This one comes from Ms. OMGsrsly and I’m super stoked since I love cold brewing these kinds of blends. Thanks for the sample!
I cold brewed about three glasses worth, and already done one. I can totally taste the strawberries and blackberries separately. It’s blends like this that don’t make me miss juice at all. So thirst-quenching and popping with flavour.
If I had the opportunity to pick some of this up, I wouldn’t hesitate to stock up.
OMGsrsly brought me a sample of this when she came by to snag her H&S order and man, I am really enjoying this. Thanks for sharing!
It really tastes like fruit juice. Sweet, vibrant and just slightly tart but not unpleasantly so. I iced the entire sample in a pitcher and don’t expect it to last the weekend! This is one that you need to buy by the tin in the summer. Maybe I’ll snag more before I go East.
I’ve been out of this tea for a week, and I’ve really missed it. Yum, berry juice! I got a tin stuffed full, so hopefully this will last me a little longer…
(Hot brewed, poured over ice.)
A mug of this to help me chill out after overcaffeinating with an oolong at 7:30pm. :)
Very herbal. Very tasty. Sadly not AS tasty as the delicious fruity tulsi I have, but still tasty.
Ooh. Maybe I’ll add some plain tulsi to Nana’s Fruit Garden. Hmm…
(A lot of tea in a big mug with hot water for the length of time it took to prep my pasta. So. This tea is pretty invincible.)
So, I got a “teazer” sampler pack of this, which I think is the only option for purchase at herbal republic other than buying a full tin/big bag (100 gram minimum? Unless you get the teazers, I think.) Not sure, as I only dashed in there on lunch break, not much time to chatter. It was about 5+ tablespoons in the sample teazer pack.
I think I have been using too little tea in my iced blends so I dumped the whole teazer into my takeya, steeped for about ?10 mins in boiling water then added cold water and ice to make about 1.5 – 1.75 litres, then chilled in the fridge. I even tossed in some frozen berries to the mix.
Having a big glass now over ice with a tiny bit of Sonoma simple syrup. It’s good. Very fruity, very berry, very juicey. The more I drink it the more I like it. I think I taste more sweet strawberry, than tart berry, but it is nice. Will definitely go back for a tin ( or bag, however they sell it ) and add this one to my summer iced tea rotation!
2 tbsp in 2 cups water, then poured over ice, water added to make it 1 litre.
This is delicious berry juice when made this way. Add a little sugar or honey if you need to, but it is just so good. If you prefer to be stingy with your heavy fruit teas, 1 tbsp in 1 cup hot water done this way is also good. I just wanted the thick juice flavour and texture tonight.
I’m almost out, and I’ve had it 8 days. I think I need to bring my tin in and get more!
This is pretty good hot, but I prefer it over ice. Hot, I find it needs a bit of sugar for the flavours to come out. Cold, it’s just goodness all on its own.
This one smells so so good, but I’m a little disappointed by the flavour. Might be the lemon myrtle. Hmm. And how many teas with lemon myrtle do I have now? 3? 4? Oops.
Anyways, it smells deliciously lemony and spicy and just yum. Taste-wise, the lemon falls apart a little bit. Ginger comes out, which is delicious, and it goes really well with the tulsi. I think I prefer a fruity tulsi blend, though. That one I had from Georgie’s on the island was just SO good. This one is good, but isn’t SO good. :)
I added a little honey to see if that rescued the flavour a bit, and it does. Yay! This one is also apparently good iced, so I’ll have to try that tomorrow afternoon.
My initial impression is that I probably won’t buy more, but that could change!
I received a sample of this one in store, iced. I thought it tasted like berry juice, even unsweetened, so I bought a package.
So, so, so good. It’s sweet, a tiny bit tart (the hibiscus is OK for me in this one!), and thick and juicy and amazing.
I used 1 tbsp in 1 cup of boiling water, steeped 5 minutes, poured it over ice into my $1 sbux cup, then topped with cold water. OMG, amazing. I’m going to have to bring in a tin for filling, because this is an amazing summer tea for me.
Just too bad it has raspberries – my BFF can’t have it. :(
I’m not sure why I decided to get this particular tea, I think it just caught my eye when I was rambling through the Teaz Tea (Herbal Republic is their brand) shop on Granville St in Vancouver last year. Any how, I found it tucked away in the back of my cupboard today and decided to give it a try.
The dry tea smells quite spicy almost as if chili pepper had been added to it, though I guess that might be partly due to the ginger. Interestingly the flavour itself wasn’t spicy at all. Instead the tea tasted lightly sweet and herbal with a hay-like note – from the clover maybe? Not sure if it’ll cure all my ills but it’s a pleasant tisane to drink late at night.
Aaaaahhhhhhhh this stuff is to die for! My friend swapped this with me via snail mail with the instructions to boil with soymilk. What a treat! So creamy and rich and smooth and mmmmmm…
My favourite tea. It never disappoints! Lovely subtle creamy vanilla rooibos with floral notes and light fruit. Beautiful rose and cornflower petals make look delightful, light floral and warm vanilla aroma is always inviting.
This was the tea that inspired me to venture out and try new teas, but it still remains my go-to treat in the afternoon.
Did the job – Nice EG
I am finishing off the last that I have of this tea. I forgot to set my timer, so I oversteeped it, but it is still good. It has a little more astringency than I would be experiencing if I had steeped it at the right time. But it doesn’t have a bitter taste to it. Just a little more astringency.
It is still pleasantly flavorful. Not the best Earl Grey that I’ve tried, but it’s delicious.
Just finishing up a cup of this now. I am finding this tea to be particularly comforting and soothing after a spicy meal at dinner time. Tummy was starting to feel a little upset, but this tisane calmed it right down… Because of that, I have to give it a few more points!
First…thank you LiberTEAs for sending this my way!
2nd…every assumption and thought I had holding me back from having a cup I am now completely throwing out the window! This was a complete surprise and in a good way! It proved me wrong in every way and I’m happy about that!!!!
I was so worried this was going to be TOO Gingery for me…it wasn’t…
The Lemongrass totally evened that out…both the lemon grass AND the ginger are gentle yet flavorful and pair well together! I wouldn’t change the ratio any…it’s good the way it is!
I can’t really smell the licorice but I can taste it a little bit and with the licorice and the pepper pairing they also work nicely together and are subtle…again, thanks to the lemongrass.
I can smell the peppermint but the taste of the peppermint really isn’t the flavor in the forefront…it’s just enough to be there – in comparison I would say a little less than the licorice. Maybe moreso in the aftertaste, however.
This is very different yet quite good and I am so pleased it’s NOT ‘run of the mill’ and even more so excited that it’s more than just ginger!
This is nice!
This is a very interesting herbal – all the flavors are very well represented in my cup, and it makes for a very unusual yet tasty tea.
The ginger and licorice seem to be the strongest flavors here, and I like how they taste together. The sweetness of the licorice seems to accent the peppery notes of the ginger (the pepper also highlights this quality of the ginger), while the warmth of the ginger really plays to the sharp notes of the licorice. It’s very interesting and deliciously different.
The lemongrass offers a sweet, smooth lemony flavor that adds a bright, fresh taste to the cup. And the peppermint sneaks up and kicks in right at the finish – very crisp and clean tasting.
I am really enjoying this – much more than I thought I would. It’s tasty!
I just finished a cup of this tea – It is really a lovely Earl Grey. I love the combination of Darjeeling and Earl Grey.
A nice bergamot flavor – delightful!
I am going to raise the numeric rating of this because I toyed around a bit with the brewing parameters. It is much better if the kettle is pulled just before it reaches the boiling point. I think that this is true of most Darjeeling teas.
The bergamot is strong in this blend and plays well with the muscatel notes in the Darjeeling tea. The woodsy notes of the Darjeeling seem to meld with some of the floral notes of the bergamot, giving the fruit more opportunity to be more citrus-y and less flowery… I would say that this is a masculine Earl Grey. Very clean and bright in flavor.
Fairly good for a EG…I’m liking the Darjeeling twist tho!
The bergamot is strong, but, I can also taste the Darjeeling tea here. I have usually always liked the Darjeeling Earl Grey teas, if for no other reason than they are a bit different from the usual blends… so I am also quite fond of this one.
The Darjeeling seems to glisten on the tongue – I can taste hints of muscatel as they mingle with the bergamot. A very pleasant blend.
