drank Chamomile by Stash Tea Company
243 tasting notes

This was a nice, smooth, sweet cup of chamomile. I was nervous and anxious last night, so I made this at my boyfriend’s house with dinner. By the time I finished the mug, my nerves were considerably soothed.

I think chamomile is one of the most comforting teas out there. As far as I’m concerned, it has magical nerve tonic qualities.

This tea has natural flavors added to their black tea, no bits of cocoa bean or hazelnuts.
The flavor of this tea is mild with a gentle aftertaste of chocolate. There is no tartness or random flavors to take away from the purity of flavor. This tea is improved with a touch of sugar or agave but don’t go too sweet, don’t try to use this as a substitute for Ferrero Rocher. The black tea is not bitter or overpowering.

Stash Chocolate Hazelnut tea would make a nice accompaniment to dessert or for a mid-day tea and cookie break.

Writing my thesis. Very stressful.

I know it isn’t breakfast time, but lavender and vanilla are very soothing to me, as is Earl Grey. So when they all meet in one amazing cup, I can’t help but reach for it during my hour(s) of need.

I know this seems crazy, but this bagged tea is better than many of the loose teas I’ve tried. It’s just so completely perfect in every way.

drank Chai Green by Stash Tea Company
243 tasting notes

On Monday, I was wearing shorts. This morning when I woke up, there was (I kid you not) SNOW on the ground.

This zoomed me back into Winter Mode, but only halfway. So instead of having a hearty black chai, I reached for my springy/ wintery green chai.

I still feel pretty ambiguous about it. It’s good if you like cinnamon, but I still think black chais rule.

Love it! The flavor is really good I can definitely taste the vanilla and the nuttiness. First tea bought from Stash and it won’t be the last. :)

Flavors: Vanilla

This one is… Interesting.

I smell hibiscus, chamomile, and pomegranate, right out of the gate. It’s supposed to have matcha in it, but I thought matcha was powder that is supposed to be stirred directly into the water, so I’m not quite sure how it will work in a teabag.

Sipping… Hibiscus and grassiness are what I get while the liquor is in my mouth. I can taste the raspberry, but only after I swallow. Overall, not a very flavorful tea. It takes a while to get going.

Flavors: Grass, Metallic, Stewed Fruits

This tea is vaguely fruit-tasting. The hibiscus comes through more than the pomegranate or the raspberry. I don’t taste any green tea at all. It’s not bad tasting, but it sure isn’t good either.

This tea is a delightful blend of tea, chocolate and orange. It tastes more like chocolate than it does orange but you can taste the orange a little bit. It great hot, I have never tried it iced.

It’s weird to drink a tea that tastes like coffee. It’s confusing, and not entirely comfortable.

That being said…once you get used to the coffee/tea hybrid (coffea?) it’s not too bad. The second steep was better than the first, but I find that is the case with most chocolate teas I try. I didn’t have it in me to try a third.

I went and got a proper cup of coffee instead.

I love Stash; definitely my favourite bagged tea brand. Have you tried the Red Velvet Cake herbal yet?

221tea

I loved all of the other Stash teas, but not this poor little guy…

I haven’t tried the red velvet, but I love red velvet as a flavor…do you recommend?

Roswell Strange

I definitely recommend it! It’s the chocolate aspect of Red Velvet and the cream cheese icing; many Red Velvet flavoured things neglect the icing and that’s such an important flavour aspect of Red Velvet to me. I also really like the Decaf Vanilla Chai; it has an insanely good and comforting aroma.

221tea

I’ll have to check it out. I agree, the icing is very important! I am still filling up my cupboard, I only have about 20% entered because I am trying to review as I go, but if you would like to swap let me know :)

This is an amazing Irish Breakfast. Very smooth. Great with a bit of milk and sugar. I was looking for a solid breakfast tea, and this definitely fits the bill.

I got three solid re-steeps out of it before I decided to switch it up for the day.

Highly recommend this one.

I LOVE THIS TEA. I hope Stash eventually offers it loose.

It tastes exactly like peach cobbler. The name is not a lie.

I enjoy this, and take it with me when I go away, but am not sure I will be repurchasing. For chai, it is decent, and definitely has some spice. But I have noticed a lack of cinnamon taste and also a lack of vanilla. Considering it is vanilla chai, this disappoints me.

I apparently forgot to log this one a few days ago.

I made it at work with honey because my was feeling a little sore/scratchy, but then I got called to the front (despite being on break) to deal with a customer complaint, and didn’t get to it until the end of the night with closing paperwork. By then it was stone cold, and my throat was feeling better anyway so it had lost its point.

It still tasted good, though.

Slight backlog from last night.

This was my final tea of the day which, admittedly, didn’t really get in a ton of tea drinking. Oh well, I feel like I made the teas I did get in really count. Though this one was picked out of convenience more than anything else; I wanted a bagged tea for simplicity’s sake, and this was one I hadn’t had for a while.

The coconut was a bonus.

I ended up falling asleep last night while building carts on Red Leaf Tea and Redbubble; the latter of which isn’t a “tea” site but a “t-shirt” site (primarily, anyway). I struggled with narrowing things down, but I’m thinking of some combination of these ones:

Thoughts and opinions of people here on Steepster would be much appreciated! I’m definitely in need of new shirts; most of the ones I own are way too old/worn out to be worn for work, so I thought this would be a fun way to kind of “customize” my own clothing, and still keep things fun/work appropriate. Although, a few of those are references I’m not sure everyone here on Steepster will get…

And lastly, I was heart broken to wake up to the news that DT is discontinuing four more blends; three of which I really enjoy/wanted to stock up on! So it looks like I’m going to have to make a DT trip sooner, rather than later, to buy 100g (well, 98g because I have tins for them, they’re just not empty yet – so I don’t want new tins) of Superberry and Bamboozled, plus the 50g of Cool Cucumber I wanted anyway. I think I’m ok with not going crazy and restocking Big Apple too; I still have a fair bit of it.

But shame on you, DAVIDsTEA for discontinuing yet. another. fucking. white. blend! Really? First Sweet Strawberry (which was so perfect), then your straight whites, and the Jasmine Silver Needle, and now this one too? You have next to no white teas left! Ugh. Get rid of some of the nasty greens…

I was heartbroken when they discontinued Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble.

The breakfast place across the street from work makes decent breakfast sandwiches. Inanely, their breakfast special makes it cheaper to get a sandwich and coffee than just a sandwich. Thankfully, they let me sub out tea for coffee.

This is my current favorite breakfast special tea. The flavor is creamy and dead-on for its name. As the brew cools, the flavor turns to more of a generic stone fruit – peach or maybe apricot. Still enjoyable, just different. I can’t quite get over how creamy this one is. It’s like the herbal tea version of a smoothie. Nom nom nom.

Yesterday, we had afternoon tea for my mom and grandmother’s birthdays. I brought a large bag of teas, but my mom had quite a few herself! She recently ordered from Harney & Sons and Stash, so I got to try a few new ones. We enjoyed lemon cream scones, egg salad sandwiches, haystack cookies, white chocolate kona shortbread cookies and lemon bundt cake. Yum!

So, I’ve always kinda poo-poohed (if that’s a word) Stash tea because I thought everything they sold was bagged tea. Plus, I’ve had their spicy chai and I hate it. My mom, however, changed my opinion when she brought out a couple of their teas in loose form and gave me samples to try at home. I’m not sure I’ve ever really had a straight keemum before, but after reading the description for Golden Moon Tea’s version, my curiosity peaked. (I still intend to order some of that tea).

As for Stash’s version, it wasn’t exactly love at first sip, but as I sipped, it really grew on me. The description talks of plum and orchid notes…not sure I get that. What I did taste was a sweetness that was hard to place, but by the end of the cup I thought I got cocoa notes. Yay! I also tasted some smokiness, which I’m not a fan of, but it was balanced by the other flavors in the cup and didn’t overpower. Not bad! I guess Stash could still be a player in my cupboard. ;)
