Thanks to MissB for this! I was really excited for this since I love spicy teas but the base is quite astringent an the spices are rather muddled. I get mostly cinnamon bark, and no orange. I can see this being better with milk and sugar.
Don’t you find it frustrating when you try to make plans with someone but they will never solidify a time and/or place, so you end up spending an entire day (even sometimes the entire weekend) twiddling your thumbs waiting, on call, and avoiding doing anything else because that person may call you at any time when they’re personally ready to meet up, meaning you’d have to drop whatever it is you’re doing? On the bright side, it’s giving me a chance to sit down and drink a bunch of tea, which I haven’t been doing much of, as of late.
Ok whew, this does have spice in it. I was wondering if this got contaminated in any way because the first sip resulted in mass confusion. Why does a peach tea taste like cinnamon sticks? Then of course, upon looking up the ingredients list, I really this thatI’ve been misled. It’s an odd name to give to a tea without peach, regardless of the meaning.
I’m not as peachy keen on the flavour as I am on the scent. This smells much spicier than it tastes. It’s like a Christmas Yankee candle. The base is extremely light. I can’t even notice it.
I made this last week in my iced tea pitcher – 2 cups of hot water, then diluted with 2 cups of cold water and stored in the fridge.
I have to admit that while I did smell the raspberry flavouring, I could barely taste it. It just tasted like a mouthful of cold tea, slightly overstrong and astringent. I forget it I added any sugar.
I received a wonderful package from MissB the other day, full of samples from her exciting travels and other orders from around the world. Thank you so much, gorgeous!
I didn’t even know about this company so I’m looking forward to trying a few of their blends. I’m normally not that crazy of a fan of tulsi but sometimes it’s nice to sip on a refreshing herbal. This one is particularly pepperminty and peppery. It’s complete with a shot of lemon in the background.
Hm. Weird tea. Got it as a sample in their Kickstarter campaign, and it’s…. better cold. A bit floral, juicy berry (can’t tell what exactly), and definitely hibiscus. There’s something in here though that’s giving me an allergic reaction, even though the ingredient list seems solid. I’ll pass off the last cup to someone else who might enjoy it more.
Flavors: Berry, Floral, Hibiscus
I’ve heard that tulsi can be very soothing and relaxing – which means that I’d love to develop a taste for it. However, it still tastes sort of weird/funky to me. I keep expecting to get a cup of diluted pesto when I brew it, but the taste is much different than what i’ve built up in my head.
This tea isn’t so bad – it’s quite sweet, actually – but I really just want to finish it off so I have one less tea in my cupboard.
This was interesting – it wasn’t juicy at all, like most fruit flavored teas. It was tea and flowers from the chamomile, with a tropical edge. Can’t say I tasted mango specifically, but mango is such a strongly flavored sweet fruit, I find it is not easy to duplicate in a flavoring without a lot of flavor and a lot of sugar. I even cold steeped this, which normally really enhances any fruit flavors in a tea.
I was saving this sample from their Kickstarter campaign last year, and I finally decided to drink it last night. I overleafed it, but it was still quite nice. it had a really nice juicy flavour to it, and the presence of the hibiscus wasn’t as overwhelming as I worried it would be. The interplay between the cinnamon and the blueberry was also quite nice, and the liquor was this beautiful juicy red colour.
I… I kinda wish I had known I would like this blend – if I had, I would have chosen it over some of the blends I did ask for. Ah well, one less tea in the cupboard!
This is hibiscus all the way. I taste a slight herbal flavor with it, but not much else. Good for iced tea, but steer clear if you were hoping for more Orange. I cold brewed,and when I do so I usually do three cups instead of four to keep the flavor strong, and this one would have done really well to be steeped that way, but with 5 cups. Maybe even 6. Then I might have tasted the orange more.
Ok, finally getting around to reviewing this one. Again, my thanks go to Just Organic Teas for giving me this sample to try!
It smells flat-out wonderful. Bright, sweet mango scent with something perfume-like. The aroma is so inviting and juicy. Citrus and apricot and mango scents – basically any kind of orange fruit. As it steeps, it comes out to a light tan color and the aroma of chamomile appears. Once iced, the tea fades to a more normal green tea color – like faintly green straw.
The flavor is a little milder than I expected, but I like it. It’s not like drinking mango juice or anything. There is no tartness, but you can tell it’s made with tea in the finish. The chamomile is also present – surprisingly unmuted by the fruit. However, in my second glass, I plan on using a less ice-heavy ratio. I suppose my only critique of this would be that the mango flavor needs more of a kick.
Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Mango
I enjoyed this, but was surprised to see that it smelled more like lemon dry than I could smell or taste it brewed. That said, the mint is the real deal. It is a bit spearminty, but frankly, real mint to me usually doesn’t have a strong flavor. It iinstead creates this cooling mint effect that is more of a feeling than a taste, kind of like drinking air conditioning. Which I LOVE in an iced tea.
Another sample from lolainred! I’ve heard her talk about this company, so I was glad for a chance to try one of their teas. Unfortunately, I made it in a hurry and I’m afraid I over-steeped it. My cup came out quite grassy and vegetal with a bitter tang to the aftertaste. Not going to rate this one, since I didn’t really give it a fair trial.
Flavors: Bitter, Grass, Vegetal
’Here’s Hoping’ Teabox Round #4 – Tea #4
There is a big ole two ounce pouch of this in the teabox… had to try it! The spearmint takes over in this one leaving a great fresh flavor while hiding the green tea a little. The flavor of the green tea must be very light. It’s delicious though! Both steeps were excellent. Very refreshing.
Thanks Just Organic Tea for the sample!
I’m enjoying this. It reminds me of a unsweetened McDonald’s ice tea with a slight hint of berry flavoring. When you open the tea bag, the berry smell hits you in the face. But I don’t think that really translates itself into the flavor. That or the base is just really strong. All in all I like it, but I’m not sure I would pick it up again. If the berry flavoring was a bit stronger I could see this as a great everyday iced tea.
Very minty, but light on the lemon. I made a nice large pitcher out of this bag, with great results. I have been using it as my liquid base for my green smoothies all week and let me tell you, a hint of mint in a pina colada green smoothie is the tits.
When I wanted more of a lemon punch in the face, I added a slice of lemon to my glass as I drank it, and it proved to have much better results.
This was not my favorite out of the bunch, I know it would be more appreciated in the dog days of summer, with the icy mint flavor to cool me off. Nevertheless, this was a fun tea to sip on all day.
Nearing the end of my Just Organic Teas reviews with this one. I’ve got the mango-citrus one next, then I’m on to other things.
The scent of it instantly reminds me of Tazo’s “Passion” and this glass bottled juice tea they made called “Brambleberry”. (Which turned out to be marion berry juice and cinnamon.) The hibiscus is bright and in the forefront, complimented by cinnamon. Honestly, I can just barely smell the orange peel and lemon myrtle over the hibiscus, but we could all assume that was going to happen.
When finished, the tea comes out to such a dark purple it’s practically eggplant. It’s very fragrant, fruity and spiced. Once iced, it comes out to a lovely cranberry-like shade of red. Sipping it over ice seems like drinking fruit juice. There’s zero tea astringency or bitterness since it’s herbal, so it’s very smooth and even after sweetener, it’s tart. The cinnamon is a nice touch, too. It makes it stand out. However, the cinnamon and hibiscus are loud and don’t really give the other notes a chance.
I can’t really say this tea tastes very “orange”. But that’s fine, as I’m not really into that. But if you are looking for something citrusy, I wouldn’t recommend it for that. Still, I like it. It reminds me of sangria! That’s what it is! Maybe it wil have to make another appearance this summer for that reason alone.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Hibiscus, Tangy, Tart
So anyone who knows me know that I don’t drink green tea, pretty much ever. But I had committed to reviewing these, and wanted to try it.
The funny thing is that this is probably my favorite so far. It doesn’t have a very strong tea flavor compared to a black tea, but the mango and slightly floral flavors are really nice.
Thank you for providing a sample, Just Organic Tea!
I was looking forward to this one the most out of the bunch, and it is one of the two that I really liked. Spearmint is my favorite herbal tisane. I was expecting peppermint so it was great to to the former on the packet. Spearmint and lemon (and lemon myrtle) go well together. Tastes mostly spearmint-y. There is a hint of the lemon/citrus notes. I drank this over the past couple days. The weather was so cooooold, but this was still refreshing to drink.
