Hm, well, it’s an odd one. I like Pu-erh teas, not my all time favorites but I can appreciate the nuance and the savory, earthy taste they sometimes carry. This one is pretty good, and the cardamom certainly makes the pu-erh more palatable, but it’s quite disorienting in some ways.

Specifically, it smells like fish when it’s brewing. Fish with a subtle hint of cardamom…sounds like a pretty nice dish, but not necessarily what I imagine when I’m brewing tea. So once it’s finished brewing (I followed Numi’s suggestion of about 4 minutes) it doesn’t taste like fish at all to me.

It’s got the earthiness I’ve come to expect with pu-erhs, and a nice thick body to it. There is a lot of cardamom, and over all it just tastes…okay. I like it, but I don’t think it will sway chai fans, for example, into the world of pu-erh based off of scent alone. And pu-erh connoisseurs may not appreciate the presence of cardamom. It’s not bad, but I just almost don’t know who it’s for…Well, as a fan of cardamom and pu-erh I think it’s pretty good. If you are in that venn diagram, you may like it as well.

drank Rooibos by Numi Organic Tea
1071 tasting notes

A very fragrant and rooibos-y rooibos. Heavy due to the flavours of cedar, wood, minerals, and cream. I think it is more vanilla than cream, actually. Whatever, it is delicious either way. I steeped it hot (boiling water/98 deg C), which creates a much different flavour than steeped in hottish (80-90 deg C) water. It seemed fitting on an unusually cold and snowy day.

I’d like to mention that though I drank this straight, I’ve enjoyed it with milk, honey, or lemon added. Also, try cold brewing it with two teabags in 1L of water in the fridge overnight.

This tea is how I first fell in love with honeybush. It is very sweet, flavourful (it re-brewed three times quite well), and smells like nectar. The dark orange brew is also a bit on the woody side, but in a really good way. It has none of the unpleasant quality that tea can have (astringency, tannic, bitter, leafy/grassy/vegetal), it is incapable of being any of those things, no matter how you brew it. A friend of mine keeps herbals around for when company comes over (she only drinks coffee), and I think I’ve almost consumed the entire box now.

If you enjoy rooibos and caramelized sugar, you will enjoy this herbal tisane very much. It is a top notch honeybush, but a bit plain when you are used to flavoured blends/variety like I am.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Honey, Nectar, Nuts, Sugarcane, Sweet, Winter Honey, Wood

Looks like I need to try this herbal. I’ve only had red rooibos so far but this sounds delicious

drank Toasted Rice by Numi Organic Tea

First of this kind of tea that I have tried. I was a little leary that it would taste like burnt grass. Instead it does have a nice toasted rice nutty flavor. Not a huge astringent taste like straight sencha can have, it’s offset and softened by the toasted rice.

Not as spicey as a lot of orange spice teas. I like the white tea mixed with the orange. Has some spice but it’s not overwhelming.

drank Rooibos Chai by Numi Organic Tea
38 tasting notes

I’m not normally into Chai tea, but this is one of my favorites that I’ve tried. The chai and rooibos flavors blend well together, without being too harsh or bitter like some types of chai, or too earthy like some types of rooibos.

Not what I expected. I was hoping for chocolate, but what I got was cinnamon. It smells like earthy cinnamon and tastes strongly of cinnamon. Where’s the chocolate?
Maybe the water wasn’t hot enough? I need to invest in a kettle with a built in thermometer because I really have no idea. Either the kettle is whistling or it isn’t, and it takes a good 10 minutes to achieve a whistle.
So I need to try again with hotter, and perhaps less, water. I used 12 oz, might try with 8 oz. And maybe try adding milk or sugar.
I like this cinnamon tea, but when I purchased it I was looking for chocolate.

Long time no reviews. Heck, long time no new tea. In my travels, I decided to get a Numi variety pack. Normally I am loose leaf all the way but at school and while travelling, bags are just simpler.

That said, I didn’t find this to be very special. Black tea. Standard bagged fare for me.

I had high hopes for this one, and they were exceeded! Beyond the tomato and mint, there were additional vegetable notes (onion and peppers stood out the most), as well as a touch of spiciness.

Best with boiling water, indefinite steeping, and a pinch (or two) of salt. Yum!

Bagged tea. Nice bergamont smell but after brewing I don’t notice any bergamont at all. Strong black tea. Stronger than any other versions of Earl Grey I’ve tried. Better with milk.

Overrated based on reviews I’ve seen.

drank White Rose by Numi Organic Tea
59 tasting notes

I got this tea after reading about it in the tasting notes of another tea I like. This one has a faint rose smell before brewing that seems to disappear after brewing.
Flavor white, the rose flavor is gentle, not you your face (although I like in your face). It’s refreshing but not something if you want a bold flavor. Not bad but very gentle.
I heated water to boil then let cool a minute or so first before steeping as the box instructed

I had this today at Coffee Culture (I know, I know), and it was actually not bad at all. Quite spicy tasting, but it blends well with the orange. (Also, do not drink right after having chili, my mouth was on fire)

I love all the health benefits of turmeric and think this is a much tastier way of enjoying the benefits as opposed to the golden almond milk recipe I tried from Pinterest. I didn’t add any form of sweetener and felt that it was fine on its own. I will continue to drink here and there when I want to get my turmeric fix.

For a bagged tea, this is pretty good! I also love how readily available in stores it is. If I’m on vacation or out of tea, I can just run to the nearest health store or organic market and this will likely be there!

Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot
