I was interested in trying this one because of the Mint and Lemon Verbena! But I was also curious because of the other ingredients and the NAME. One of the many reasons I LOVE Indie Tea!!!! The Names, the Product Descriptions, the Art! It’s all really wonderful! Organic and Vegan ingredients are a plus, too!
Gotu Kola – I have had before but wanted to learn more about it so I did by reading this link
I wasn’t as familiar with Brahmi so I looked that up, too!
All of these ingredients serve a purpose – or more than one purpose – and all make sense in this blend of herbals. WHO’S the SMARTY PANTS, now, Indie Tea!? Nicely done, btw! This Herbal Tisane Flavor is VERY pleasing. In addition to the Lemon/Mint Combo there is a bit of ginger shining thru as well as Tulsi! Very nice!
This tisane shines bright!
My mother always said I was a ‘TEEN’ in the wrong decade! Sure…I was a 70s Baby but I wasn’t of age in the 60s or 70s to participate in Woodstock, Hippie Gatherings, and Communal Living. I probably would have – had I been given the opportunity! So when I saw this tea I KNEW I HAD to try it!
I know you’re not supposed to judge a tea by it’s name but I sort of DID with this one. Usually I’m not one to ‘yank’ a floral tea off the shelf or specifically order one but this tea NAME had me a Peace/Love/Happy.
This is made up of Green Tea, Jasmine, and Chrysanthemums.
It infuses to a gentle orange/tan color. I can smell and taste both of the flower ingredients. It’s both florally-sweet and semi-florally-bitter. It’s a nice yin an yang of sorts.
This is fantastic for a floral tea. It really is.
I received a buttload of this from Indie and I’m so grateful to try this! I’ve always loved their tins and blends and creativeness behind each one!
At first sniff I can smell the Green and Red Rooibos Combo paired with the Sunflowers. It’s a different sort of aroma but it grew on me quickly. The color is an oranger-type rooibosy color. It’s very pretty.
This is sweet and vanilla and apricot flavored for sure but not overly-so. It has lovely floral notes that are just-right. The vanilla does help dilute the floral notes and smooths it out nicely.
YUM! This is nifty!
I’ve been overly obsessed with Medjool Dates and Almond Butter Lately
So when I saw this flavored Oolong – I KNEW I had to try it!
Prior to infusing this smelled like sugary dates underneath a charcoal type oolong. Once infused it smelled more like a toasted/roasted oolong with a bit of sugar dates aroma.
Once I started sipping I could taste a strong toasted/roasted/charcoal type oolong base with a bit of floral and nutty hints as well as a slight rich yet sugary dates type taste. As it cools a bit more I can start tasting the dates a bit more but they are subtle.
I do really like this. I was hoping for more date-flavor but it’s still quite good, regardless. Perhaps I should just make sure there are more Date Chunks in my next cuppa!
PS: Also as it cools a bit – I’m starting to taste some cocoa flavors, too! Now THAT’S interesting!
YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!
First…this is VEGAN.
2nd…check out these ingredients! What an interesting Combo! Pu-erh, Vegan Chocolate Chips, Cane Juice, Chocolate, cocoa butter, vanilla, cherries, chile peppers, etc.
Once infused it does smell like pu-erh and chocolate, mostly. It’s stronger than before infusion, too! Prior to infusing I could smell a bit of cherry as well.
It’s infuses to a dark brown.
First sip…YUM! Smooth, sugary-smooth, chocolaty! Creamy! Vanilla-Creamy-smooth! As I continue to sip I can pick up a bit more on the cherry notes. They are subtle but the creamy texture and flavors shine. The chocolate and vanilla contribute to that. But I can taste the chocolate more than the vanilla.
Oddly…I can taste the Chipotle Chiles right smack dab in the middle of the sip – they poop in and out really quick. They don’t linger and they are subtle but fascinating!
I seriously LOVE this. Perhaps just as much for the texture as the taste. Sure – more chocolate is always welcome – but this has a nice amount featured in it.
Lovely! Wonderful! Pure delight! Excellent blend of flavors! WOW!
I’m totally LOVING this has Grapefruit, Orange, AND Bergamot in it! I love when a flavored EG goes the extra mile! This is citrusy-fruity and juicy and I really like it. It’s lighter on the perfumy and astringency notes of other EGs but I’m totally ok with that! The Citrus Fruit Flavors are lovely and a great pick-me-up!
Black tea isn’t usually my thing but this manages to deliver black tea goodness without too much harshness on the gut. Stands well on its own, like a fine black coffee, but for those who don’t care much for black tea, the addition of milk and honey makes this a joy to drink. I bought this for when I was hosting when people might not appreciate black tea, but it finds itself in my teapot more often than I expected.
mm this tea was just what I needed. My tummy hurts from trying to find happiness in sour soothers. Man I can’t kick them, bulk barn is my haven and sour keys are my drug.
But enough of them do not a happy tummy make!
This tea smells amaaaazing. The lavender is so soothing, and the rose buds are beautiful to look at.
The taste is wonderful – I haven’t had a good lavender tea in a while and this one is hitting the spot. There is a spiciness to this tea – not a pepper spice, but a cooking spice – like thyme almost. The taste is light but perfectly blended.
So so relaxing – my tummy feels better already.
Thank you so much for this sample LiberTeas! I’m very interested in this tea company :)
If you’re any enemy of fun, please stop reading now. Seriously, shoo! Go and have some dental work done, get a jump on your taxes, or simply just be gone with you. HoopLa from Indie Tea is all about fun, and I won’t have anyone who can’t appreciate the ingenious mix of herbal tea, fruit, and vegan gummy bears ruining the party! AND I don’t want to hear any nonsense about about gummy bears having no place in a serous tea. HoopLa is seriously delicious and I applaud Indie tea for making my cup of herbal tea even more enjoyable.
HoopLa is chock-a-block with dried fruit, vegan gummy bears, and herbs. The infusion is a bright yellow with a distinctive, fresh, lemon aroma. At first sip, a wonderful, uplifting, citrusy brightness washes over me. The body is light and refreshing with a sweet, lingering finish. I can’t wait to take another sip!
Indie Tea is donating 5% of their tea sales in October to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and we all know that breast cancer research is a great cause. And if you add a tin of Cranberry Boobilicious to your order they’ll make an additional donation to the cause. It’s a win-win-win-win-win situation!

This is a wonderful and deliciously different chai. It’s been a while since I’ve last tasted it, and I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I sipped it again. It is so nice.
It isn’t overly spicy, but, what I would call a well-seasoned spice blend. It has a good amount of spice without being hot or overwhelming. The black tea is strong and malty and delicious. I can taste the hint of orange in the background and it offers a nice light flavor to the blend, giving it a sense of balance.
A very good chai.
Very nice flavored tea. Groovy package look. Suits this little teapot well. My humans liked it, too. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-indie-teas-road-to-hana-tea.html
