Tea 5/6 from the fruit tea sampler I got off of amazon. I bought these teas with the intention of making pitchers of iced tea. To try this tea, I put 1 bag of of this tea in 8 oz of cold water and put it in the fridge to steep for about 1.5-2 hours (cold brew).
When it comes to the taste of this tea, it is very light (not surprising since the main ingredients are floral) with a mild tart taste from the hibiscus. As for any taste of mangoes? None whatsoever. I drink a smoothie every morning and often I make them with mangoes. I have also had Mango Fruit Punch tea from DAVIDs. Those things tasted like mangoes, this- not even close. I can’t comment on the passion fruit because I don’t recall ever eating that fruit, but this tea to me is just mildly tart and nothing else. Very disappointing since this is one of the teas I was most excited for. I will be mixing this tea with others to use up but otherwise I will not repurchase at all.
I haven’t had the final tea from the collection (Meyer Lemon) but reading the ingredients it is almost the same as the Lemon Ginger tea, and I have a good idea of what that will taste like. With that being said, I can say with confidence this is the worst tea out of the bunch.
Tea 1/6 from the fruit tea sampler I got off of amazon. 6 boxes of tea for $26 or a bit over $4 per box. Not too shabby! I bought these teas with the intention of making pitchers of iced tea.
I decided to cold brew this one. I put 4 tea bags in my 2L pitcher and let it sit in the fridge overnight (about 12 hours?). When I took a sample this morning I was underwhelmed. There isn’t much tartness from the hibiscus (a good thing), but overall it’s pretty weak and the main taste is a slightly bitter aftertaste (maybe from the chicory root? Acai berry?- can’t say I’ve had either or those things before so I’m not really sure).
I’m going to try hot brewing the tea then leaving it to cool in the fridge, or maybe use 2 tea bags of this tea plus 2 of another kind to make it better. Otherwise I will not be repurchasing this tea (which is disappointing because I had high hopes for these Stash teas). Hopefully the other kinds in my collection will be better. So far I have tried 2/5 of the celestial seasonings teas and they were both amazing, which was very surprising as I had low expectations for that brand.
I’m new to the world of chai, as I usually stick with herbals or green teas, but I’m trying to branch out-broaden my horizons if you will. I grabbed this one because it looked pretty and steeped a quick cup as soon as I got home. I added a splash of almond milk and a little bit of sugar and it was exactly what I wanted it to be. It has definitely encourage me to try some other brands and spice variations of chai.
I’m not going to lie. I mostly wanted it because of the mango on the label. I thought i was going to be a more higher volume of flavour, but maybe i added way to much water, Or not enough tea bags for me cup. I love the smell. I guess i was just too weak for me.
I found the cinnamon to be overpowering. Even the smell of the tea brewing from a couple feet away gave me a headache, and I love a chai with well-balanced spices.
Brewed 1 bag with 12oz water, then added a generous drop of fat free milk.
It’s downright freezing in Florida today – a whopping 50-something degrees which is strange for my phallic-shaped state. Which means it’s time to try those wintery teas that I’ve been saving just for a cold front. I don’t know much about the Stash brand except that I think they sell it at Target and I think I remember it being pricier than your average grocery store brand. All that indefiniteness aside, it wasn’t as strong as other chai’s I’ve had. It also seemed to have more cinnamon than most other chai’s, too. It was still very pleasant, but I think I just might prefer my Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai. You’d think Twinings paid me by the way I always go on about how much I love them. The fact that I go on and on about them this much for free should say something about how much I love them. Or that I just like to give it away for free – that didn’t COME OFF RIGHT! Anywho…. back to my cuppa.
