So I wouldn’t say this tastes good, but it doesn’t taste bad. For a medicinal / health tea, it’s not hard to get down, and supposedly it’s great as an overall immune system boost. I just wouldn’t drink it recreationally.
Since I’m not sick at the moment, though, and just drank it to try the flavor, I can’t really tell whether it’s health benefits are as amazing as claimed.
Had this at a friend’s house. I think I will always want my vanilla teas to be more vanilla, and this was no exception, but the vanilla was present and the base was pretty decent. I’ve been pretty leery of Mountain Rose’s bases after I got a green tea from them that was so powerfully astringent it made my stomach hurt. But this base was not astringent at all, so that was a nice discovery.
This is nice, but I’m surprised the other reviewers found it so lemony (though looking at all the lemony ingredients that are listed, it certainly should be). All I can think of is that lemon balm often varies in how lemony or minty it tastes, and this must be a particularly minty batch. Because mint is the strongest note here. I taste lemon, but it’s just back-up to the mint.
I’m only disappointed because I was looking forward to a super-strong lemon tea. In and of itself, the flavors are good.
I decided to try steeping up some goji berries, because I really love David’s Goji Pop, but I find it pretty pricey considering how much tea you need to brew a cup.
The results are nothing like Goji Pop.
Where Goji Pop is sweet-tart and fruity, this is buttery, nutty, and sweet in a baked-goods kind of way.
And despite the berries being intensely red, the brew doesn’t come anywhere close to Goji Pop’s hot pink. It is a pale brown.
So I guess Goji Pop’s flavor and color mainly come for the other ingredients: apple, hibiscus blossoms, rosehips, honeydew melon.
While the goji berries taste nothing like what I was expecting, this is still really good, and it actually reminds me of one of David’s other herbals: Forever Nuts. I love butter and nuts, so I won’t have any trouble getting this down.
I made the mistake of eating super spicy salsa and chips before drinking this so I’m not sure I tasted much. There was some smokiness, and it was a nice cup. Trying again for a second steep.
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 7 minutes
A little watered down but not bad.
Flavors: Astringent, Smoke
Works for me! I suffer from anxiety and occasional panic attacks, which sometimes strike when I should be sleeping. Zoloft at night and Xanax at the onset of a panic attack works, but I am trying to rely more on natural remedies. This tea sounded good from the Mountain Rose site’s description, so I ordered some. I used about a tablespoon and a half in my acorn teapot from Stash (not sure of the size). Drank the whole pot before I went to bed, skipped the Zoloft and felt very relaxed. Fell asleep in a timely manner, slept through most of the night, and woke up with no neck or shoulder pain, which I usually get due to waking up multiple times and stressing during the night. So far I am highly satisfied, although it took me a bit to get used to the hopp-y flavor. I enjoy a good beer, but that is not a taste I associate with bedtime.
Flavors: Grass, Hibiscus, Hops
This is a great Chai, I am especially enjoying it in the winter. I wanted this for an decaffeinated after lunch drink. A good balance of ginger, cinnamon and clove, nothing seems to be overpowering.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Rooibos
I have finally found the perfect jasmine tea! After much searching and being dissatisfied with teas that did not have much jasmine taste, or teas that tasted too much like perfume (probably because additional jasmine flavor was added), I discovered this tea at Mountain Rose Herbs. Definitely a wonderful jasmine smell and taste – the perfect amount for me. It tastes natural, not artificial. I drink this every day at lunch and resteep the leaves once for another great cup of tea. I brew all my green teas longer than recommended – 5 minutes – because I want to get all the health benefits out that I can. This tea holds up well to that longer steep. Very highly recommended!
I’m not sure if what I drank and what this is, is the same, but I this is the only “Tulsi Tea” by this company up here, so I went with it. I’ve been looking for a good Tulsi Tea, since I have been incredibly interested in trying some, and I am so happy that this ended up with me. I drank “Tulsi Delight Tea” which is actually not just straight Tulsi, but it’s an herbal mixture. This is by the same company that I sampled in Sedona, AZ while on vacation, so thats pretty cool to me. The flavor is amazing. I sat out in the rain and meditated while sipping on this. The taste is alike basil except sharp and spicy. The brew is encapsulated with lemon, mint, and a dry vegetal tone. This gives a thick sweet aftertaste and eucalyptus tinge. I was able to get two very strong steepings out of this, and I will definitely be stocking up. This was the perfect brew to a perfect night.
Flavors: Dry Grass, Eucalyptus, Herbaceous, Lemongrass, Sweet
I had this while on vacation in Sedona, Arizona. I stopped for lunch at this beautiful indian gardens restaurant. The atmosphere was spectacular. The table was surrounded by Ivy and wild flowers and Navajo woven blankets covered the chairs. It was good to be back home. I always ask the staff what they recommend for tea, so that I don’t have to make a decision, hahah. The young man behind the counter said that this was by far his favorite. He brewed me a generous and amount and gave me some desert honey to throw in it. The taste was perfect. It had a smooth vanilla base with a tinge of tobacco. The cardamon added a dessert spice and complimented the pepper flavor. The honey encapsulated the entire brew and caused for an enjoyable experience by the red rocks on a brisk day. This was a memorable brew for me :)
Flavors: Pepper, Smooth, Toasty, Tobacco, Vanilla
This tea is a life savior for me. Anytime I start to feel like I am coming down with a cold or start to feel a sore throat coming on, I grab my 21st Century tea by Mountain Rose Herbs and I’ll be fine by the next day. This tea works better for me than the Echinacea and Roots tea by the same vendor. 21st Century tea is a lot of nettle leaf, red clover blossoms and elderberries. I love this tea!
This is one of my favourite teas. I didn’t try it for a long time because I have never really liked Red Rooibos, but I’m so glad I finally did.
It is great on it’s own in the evening when I want to wind down from my day, and it’s really good as a base in herbal tea blends to keep them caffeine-free. It withstands over-steeping a lot better than regular tea leaves, so I like to use it in gingery decoctions that I drink all day at work.
Initially, I did not care for this tea, but it grew on me. When I first bought it there was an odd taste (seaweed like). Now it is the green tea that I compare all other green teas. It is a light body green tea. This tea also curves my appetite for a couple of hours. I have tried other store bought green teas and they have no effect on my appetite. This is the first green tea I have ever had that causes this reaction. Cheers.
300th Tasting Note!
I really enjoyed this tea and am a bit sad to see it go. I think this and rooibos chai are what I’ve been reaching for most often with this pregnancy. At the same time, since this is the only straight green rooibos I’ve tried, I’m looking forward to trying green rooibos from other companies. This tea is herbaceous, with a sweet fruitiness that I find really appealing. I’m not sure what fruit it reminds me of exactly. Maybe white grape juice, but not quite so sweet, and a hint of something tropical. I’m surprised that green rooibos isn’t used as a base for more fruity herbal teas, but it does seem to be steadily growing in popularity which pleases me. I would definitely be willing to buy more of this, but first I want to see how it compares to green rooibos from other companies.
Flavors: Fruity, Herbaceous, Sweet, Tropical, White Grapes
I’ve tried a couple of flavored Green Rooibos teas, but this is my first time having it plain. I really enjoyed it. It has a mild herbaceous flavor and is faintly sweet. It tastes very summery to me. I will definitely be drinking this often in the future, especially since rooibos is recommended for pregnant women, and doesn’t aggravate my heartburn. I definitely prefer green rooibos to red rooibos. It has a very different flavor that I really enjoy.
Flavors: Herbaceous, Sweet
I really like Honeybush Tea, and this is no exception. It’s a nice autumn tea, with it’s lovely dark amber color, and smooth, slightly sweet, woody taste. I have a fondness for flavored honeybush, but I think Mountain Rose may be my primary supplier for unflavored Honeybush in the future. It’s less expensive here than on many sites, the flavor is good, and it’s organic. Win-win.
Flavors: Sweet, Wood
