This is a typical hibiscus, rosehip tea. It tastes a bit tart and not very much like raspberry.

The citrus twist on this chamomile tea sounded interesting. In addition to the chamomile and citrus ingredients it also includes several other floral ingredients as well as spearmint. The Chamomile taste was more prominent than all the other ingredients together.

This tastes great and is quite calming as the name suggests. I would recommend this tea to anyone who likes chamomile.

I like the idea of this tea, I like the smell of this tea, but ther flavour, I do not like so much. Mostly because it’s weak and dull. I do not reccomend this one.

Here’s test #2 of my old-stash sipdown.

Let me be clear: I have no idea where this tea came from. My mom moved overseas to teach and my dad was left with her cupboard full of teas. He kept the regular black teas and gave me the rest. I think this was part of that collection.

When I took it out of the sachet, the ginger was overpowering. It almost hurt my nose.

Colour-wise, the hibiscus in this tea makes for a beautiful red colour. I can’t taste any peach, though the ginger is quite lovely. In fact, all I taste is hibiscus and ginger.

Overall, I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this one. I may just finish the stash and move on.

Woohoo! I think I’m finally out of the low point in my cold. The haze has lifted.

I sipped a large cup of this yesterday at lunch. I must say, I would never drink it if I wasn’t sick, but it felt wonderful. I could really taste the ginger and peppermint. The fennel was a much milder note.

I think I’m going to destash my old tea bags on my lunch. Perhaps this will be a more economic and less wasteful way of finishing them.

Hm, maybe one day I should look into President’s choice teas. Some look very interesting.

Whenever I need to use up a tea I’m kind of “meh” about, I either mix it in with other teas (especially in an iced tea to hide it) or bring it to work since I mostly guzzle my tea mindlessly there anyways.

That’s a good idea, Kristal. I find I don’t have the proper equipment or atmosphere to enjoy a more expensive blend here. I like the idea of making it iced, too. Thanks for the suggestions. :)

Ah, fair enough! And you’re welcome :)

It reminded me of apple cider but not as sweet. Perfect if you like apple cider but don’t want all the sugar.

After steeping the tea for about 15 minutes I removed the bag and it still tasted weak. However the further down I got in the cup the stronger the tea became. The flavor is heavier than water so the taste has the tendency to concentrates at the bottom. If it doesn’t taste strong enough, I recommend to stir it well to bring the taste up from the bottom.

I just kept enjoying the tea more and more as I drank it.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon

For me this tea was just OK. I found the ginger to be too strong. I am not big into ginger and that might be why I wasn’t crazy about it.

After drinking this tea a few times over the last couple months it is starting to grow on me and I like it more every time I try it.

Vaguely fruity and floral, but the flavours are unidentifiable and a bit sour. It smells nice and it’s good enough to use in the office until it runs out.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Sour

Tart and tangy! I didn’t get “soothing” from this tea, it reminded me of lemonade. This would probably be really good iced on a hot day on a patio somewhere. :)

My parents have this in their cupboard and when I’m over I usually have a cup or two. I like the addition of citrus to chamomile – it’s interesting.

Meh. The taste is pretty bland compared to how awesome a ginger peach tea could be, even a bagged one. When I drink a ginger tea I want it to be more in-my-face than this. The peach flavouring was just average. Nothing really exciting or new here. Buying a box of this + a box of Earth Teaze’s peach tea kinda turned me off of the flavour for a while.

This tea is my favourite chocolate tea so far!! I generally like black tea better than rooibos so for me, this tea wins out over David’s Tea’s chocolate mint tea. Which is a good thing, because it’s a fraction of the price!
