Recent Tasting Notes
Consciously under-steeped this one a bit in order to avoid any sourness, since in my experience Stash herbal teas get puckery pretty quickly.
Not super-sweet like many bagged fruit teas, but lacked any authentic blueberry flavor. It reminds me of a warm Vitamin Water.
Also when I left my empty mug sitting out, my husband thought I was secretly drinking wine, which was funny.
Flavors: Blueberry, Hibiscus
I enjoyed this chai more than I expected. While I do not enjoy green teas (especially cheap bagged greens), the spices stash uses makes this one of the better chais out of the ones I have tried. There are strong flavours from the ginger, cinnamon, clove, and cardamom.
Flavors: Astringent, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Cloves, Ginger, Spices, Spicy
The smell of this teabag when I opened the was frankly awful, I’m not sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t something that smelled like spoiled cheese. I almost threw it out right there and then, but I decided to give it a chance. The flavour is tolerable, but not really what I’d call salted caramel. It’s mostly a smokey mate flavour with (very) burnt sugar notes. I’m glad I only grabbed one teabag.
The description sounded scrumptious so of course I had to try! I was a little underwhelmed in the beginning. I added a splash of milk and could only smell the cherry. The chocolate flavor I was only picking up as an aftertaste. However, I was hit with the black forest cake flavor once I got through a little more than half the cup of tea. It was very nice and would have paired well with a chocolate dessert. I probably won’t reach for this tea often and I’ll have to play around with the length of time I let this one steep. But overall, it wasn’t bad!
Flavors: Cherry, Dark Chocolate
I found this tea to be pure delight in my cup of breakfast tea this morning. It reminds me of lady grey tea by Twinings but it goes the extra step of pleasing me with the added lavender and vanilla. I added a little half & half and just a drop of vanilla extract to really bring out the lavender/vanilla and gone down the bergamot. This will definitely be something I drink regularly!
Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender, Vanilla
Before I formally begin this review, allow me to offer a warm thanks to S.G. Sanders for providing me with an opportunity to try this tea. I am planning on doing a side-by-side shootout between this and the loose leaf Harney & Sons Paris this weekend. I like both, but there are some subtle and not so subtle differences between the two.
I prepared this tea using a one step Western infusion. I steeped 1 teaspoon of loose material in 8 ounces of 208 F water for around 5 minutes. Obviously, I did not attempt any additional infusions.
Prior to infusion, I noticed that the dry leaf material produced a pleasant aroma of vanilla, bergamot, and lavender. After infusion, the lavender, bergamot, and vanilla aromas intensified. They were also joined by a subtle toasty character and a hint of cocoa. In the mouth, the notes of lavender, vanilla, and bergamot were most definitely dominant. I was able to detect fleeting impressions of toast, cream, and cocoa beneath them.
I like this blend. It is not nearly as fruity as the Paris blend from Harney & Sons and is very smooth in the mouth. There was not a tremendous amount of body, but I did not expect there to be. Flavored teas are usually a little light in terms of body, at least in my perception. Anyway, this is a nice, straight-forward blend. I would have no difficulties recommending it to fans of flavored teas.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cocoa, Cream, Lavender, Toast, Vanilla
Hey Steepster, I’m back. I miss this. Life has been so all over the place with school that I barely have time to breathe.
These days it’s very hard for me to collect and experiment with new teas, but this one is growing on me. I bought a box at random when it was on sale at the store, and it’s proven to be a comforting and easy choice when I’m low on time and/or energy. It’s nothing special, but I’ve always enjoyed the combination of warm ginger and sweet fruit. There are few bagged teas I truly enjoy, but this is one I would buy again.
Flavors: Fruity, Ginger, Peach, Spices, Sugar
I might be in the minority here, but when it comes to price and taste, I think I prefer Stash’s Jasmine Blossom green tea to other pre-bagged jasmine green teas. the jasmine flavor comes out more than in other brands. I’m not great at writing reviews (yet), I’ll leave it at this for now.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine
This was one of the teabags packaged as a sample with my Stash order. Should be renamed “clove water”, or maybe “double clove chai”. That’s all you taste and all you smell. Cinnamon? Ginger? Nutmeg? Nope! All clove, all the time.
With sugar it tasted like purple jellybeans, which, admittedly, I like. Not enough however, to ever seek this tea out again. Stay away if you don’t like a lot of clove flavor.
