Another tea from the Chanakara variety boxes I found while looking through old things at my mom’s. I have no idea what a guanabana is, so I looked it up. Apparently it’s the same thing as a soursop, which is a fruit that visually reminds me of a giant green burr. I kind of chose this randomly as my caffeine-free tea to have tonight while in bed. Brewed one bag in boiling water for 5 minutes.

Bleck… This basically tastes like weak, tart rosehip and hibiscus water. I don’t get a “vanilla-scented” anything, or even citrus. Just tart water.

Boo hiss. That is all I have to say, Stash.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Rosehips, Tart

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

The whole “Licorice” spice set me side from ever drinking this. But since i started using this site I thought that i would give it a go, try new things. Come to sip it, it ant that bad not the best but not bad. I love the vanilla aroma it gives off and the hint of orange peel. Mmmm. But again i dunno if i really love it, its an amazing tea but i can still take the licorice and it makes me hate it still. Al thought i give it a 50, id drink it again.

So I found a couple of boxes of Chanakara Collection tea bags at my mom’s when I was going through some things. They were still wrapped in cellophane so I figured that they were probably still semi-fresh even though they’re a year or more old. There was a time in my tea past when I ordered several things from Stash’s website, and a box of these teas was one of them. I liked them so much that I ended up ordering a six-pack of boxes on Amazon, so that’s where these came from. I felt like having a nice chamomile blend this evening while watching Brave with my mom and boyfriend, so I opened one of the boxes and selected this tea. There don’t seem to be instructions anywhere on the box, so I just did boiling water for 5 minutes. I could definitely steep this one longer if I wanted a stronger flavor.

Overall, I find this to be a perfectly nice and pleasant chamomile-based tisane. I’m not really familiar with lotus or chrysanthemum flowers, so I couldn’t tell you what they add to this, and I found that the linden blossom tea I tried tasted quite similar to chamomile. So overall, this is mostly a chamomile tisane with a little bit of extra. There’s definitely a honey note, and something that reminds me of sweet pastries.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tisane, and I could definitely see myself keeping it around as a nighttime treat.

When you open the package, its as if your opening a box of girl guide cookies! YUMMY!! But then you add the water and your sugars. (I usually like my tea with out milk) And the water made it smell of weed. The smell usually makes me have a headache. But i think Oolong teas are meant to be drunken with milk? I liked it much better once i put the milk inside. Made it seem like i was drinking a melted cookie!

I thought this one would open up my stuffy nose a little with the spices and lovely aromatic scent.

It did not.

Instead the spices irritated my throat.

Made up a round of Stash bagged teas on, uhh, I think Wednesday? Wednesday and Thursday are kinda blurring together for me right now.

I wanted tea, but I didn’t have the strength to put in the effort to make nice, loose tea so lots and lots of bagged stuff. This one wasn’t really agreeing with me, though I normally adore it. It just sat funny on my tongue and left a weird sour taste in my mouth. During the sip it was nice creamy caramel, though…

Bleh.

I tried the bagged version of this. It is quite good. It has a nice blend of spices, and just a hint of pumpkin to give it a unique twist. The underlying tea flavor was smooth and not at all bitter. I wish the pumpkin flavor was a little stronger, but I think I’ll be buying more regardless.

The fragrance and flavor of this tea really underwhelmed. There was no hint of orange or spice…I really only tasted the black tea. I’ve had this sample in my stash for awhile so maybe it was old. Wouldn’t recommend unless you simply need a hot beverage with little flavor.

I was feeling lazy and wanted something super quick and warm to curl up under the blankets with while it rains and I read, and seeing this on the counter, it fit the bill. I received this and a few other dessert teas samples from Stash, because stash used to be one of my favorites before I became a tea snob, and I never knew they had this kind of variety. So curiosity got the best of my and I requested some.

Because this is a tea bag, I’m not expecting great quality, just something quick and dirty and sweet. That being said, this isn’t half bad. I’m not getting much in the way of tea, but what I’m really getting is tiramisu. Cinnamon, espresso, and chocolate. I can see this being loved by someone who’s not a big tea person, or by someone looking to cure a sweet tooth guilt free, or even to throw in you bag for a quick fix in an emergency.

This is something that if I can find in stores, I would buy a box and leave it at my dads for when I visit for the day.

I love tea, curling up under a blanket and reading a book. :)

I tried the bagged version of this. It’s a pleasant chocolate tea, but I couldn’t taste the hazelnut at all, which disappointed me. It is decaf, which is a big plus for me, since I’m extremely sensitive to caffeine, but it didn’t taste as good as Stash’s Black Forest Cake – it was a bit bitter, and didn’t have as complex a flavor. I’ll probably buy this again though, unless I find a decaf chocolate tea I like better.

This was a rather interesting tea. The smell was somewhat medicinal, so I was a bit concerned, but it tasted good. It was a very mild tea that reminded me of granola – cinnamon, nuts and oats. I think Celestial Seasonings’ Bengal Spice is still my favorite cinnamon tea, but I might end up picking up more of this as it’s a VERY different experience.
