Recent Tasting Notes

I really liked this tea with little cream and sugar, tasted exactly like a blueberry muffin! It was fantastic to have during the kids nap at work ;)

Backlog:

Not bad, but not the best rooibos chai blend I’ve tried, either. It’s a bit heavy handed with the cinnamon, but I do also taste cloves and ginger. It needs cardamom. I think that the spices would taste more rounded with it.

It’s very one-note … which is not the best way to describe a chai. Know what I mean?

I want a job at Stash. Their blend masters are geniuses. I love love LOVE this tea. It has all my favorite things in it. Smooth and fruity and sweet with just a twist of mint. If the word “mellow” had a flavor, this would be it.

Delightful!

Thought I was done with tea for the evening, but low and behold the clock ticks “3AM” and I wake up with an insatiable thirst for this tea! At least it’s bagged, so it made for a really easy to make/no effort cup, because I was so tired I doubt I could have measured anything.

But anyway; super cravings for this one! And then, once I have it, I’m sorta really let down by the flavour. This is my sleep addled brain talking, mind you, but it just tasted like “red”. The brain and body are weird sometimes, guys…

LOL, go back to sleep!

I did eventually; I managed to get a whole five hours in before work :P That’s a lot, for me.

I bought this just before I started getting into loose leaf. I drank it quite often when I first bought it but haven’t had it in a year or so. It is still quite pleasant. The vanilla really comes through with milk and sweetener and the spices are just an afterthought, which I really like. I only have a few bags left so I think I will restock this.

I love black tea in the morning, but I can’t have caffeine right after breakfast (diet rules), so I’ve been looking for good decaf blacks. After trying all of H&S’s offerings and not being impressed, it’s nice to find one that is cheap and easy to pick up at the grocery store.

This afternoon/tonight I mixed a bag of this in with some Raspberry white tea from Cuppa’T Specialty Teas for a cold brewed “Raspberry Lemonade” sipdown. For the full details of that, you can read the tasting note here:

A little mild for my taste, it’s definitely on the more subtle end of the tea spectrum.

Caffeine-Free/Decaf Traveling Tea Box

1 bag + 8oz of water brewed regularly and then placed in the frig to cool

Even though this has licorice in the ingredients list, this isn’t bad! It’s not nearly as good as Davidstea Pink Passionfruit but it was drinkable without adding sweetener. Not something I’d probably buy though.

It’s not bad. I made it with some Splenda and a little hot cocoa mix (I do that with other chocolate teas). I can taste the hazelnut, but I think the chocolate is a little weaker taste.

My tummy is all stuffed and gurgly from tons of tea consumption today; and I still have two nearly full things of tea in front of me. I think making so many rich teas (and then adding milk to nearly all of them) was likely a poor idea. I need a tummy calmer like a Genmaicha right now…

Anyway – this + milk and then coupled with a small bowl of Red Velvet Ice cream stolen from Tre is delicious and so indulgent and rich. Maybe a little bit too rich? The “cream cheese” icing flavour in this cup milk be a little too much for me tonight with my jam packed stomach.

Urghh…

I only slightly regret the choice to have such rich foods/drink.

VariaTEA

Oh no. I am sipping on Soba which makes for a nice smooth cup.

I hope you feel better soon!

I experience this as a pretty sedate lemon, and I need more pizzazz in my lemon teas. But my friends like it.

This is my “go-to” peppermint tea. Fresh, great for a sour stomach.

OK for waking up, but it didn’t do much for me.

I really love Stash. I don’t know how they do it, but somehow all of their teas manage to be dynamic and interesting, despite the fact that they’re bagged.

This is easily one of my favorites by them. Today, I got more vanilla and bergamot, and the lavender took a bit of a backseat. It went wonderfully with my cinnamon waffles.

Will be buying this again!

Rosehips

This sounds like an interesting blend. I may have to look into getting some.

teaqueen

You should! It’s lovely.

My husband received an array of bagged Stash teas from a coworker for the holidays (in a mug which was the only thing he was interested in). He gave me the teas.

This wasn’t too shabby! Usually, I’m not the biggest fan of mint teas, but this wasn’t overpowering; it was pretty smooth. Pardon my briefness, I had this at work about 8 hours ago at this point. I got a decent first steep out of my bag, tried a second – a no go. Not something I would expect from your typical bagged tea in any case. Anyway, this is good and I’d accept another bag but probably wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase.

Sipdown!

This was my final tea from last night; bagged because I didn’t want to wash out an infuser, and caffeine free because it was like 3 AM…

Overall, not too bad. Again, the strawberry was flavourful, but the pomegranate not so much. And overall, I thought this cup was kind of weak tasting so I was a bit let down.

Oh, my goodness! Easily my new favorite bergamot blend! The lavender and vanilla round out the sharpness of the bergamot without diminishing it, and the black tea base has the perfect amount of presence! This by far and away outstrips any Earl Grey I’ve tried thus far. Seriously.

Good on you, Stash! A+

Thank you to Naylynn and Brandon! I’m loving the Double Bergamot tea that you sent! I could just sit here all day and smell it. It’s even better when I actually drink it! Considering that a few months ago I had never had bergamot, it is really amazing how much I love it! Now I have something to carry with me when I go out to restaurants and other places. I never really like their teas. Of course, I might not get to sleep at night with all the caffeine . :-) Thanks again!

Bagged tea and pop tarts for breakfast, because it’s quick/easy and I’m still so exhausted from last night/work this week. At least I have all weekend off!

I’m really happy with my tea choice for the most part though; I’m just slightly regretting not picking something with lots of caffeine like a mate; maybe that’d be just a touch more helpful with feeling “bright eyed and bushy tailed”. At least this is tasty!

Tre just got up and immediately started bitching about the dishes not being done. Excuse me!? I’ve been doing all the dishes for the last month: you want a frying pan so you can make eggs? Fucking wash it yourself.

Kat_Maria

Haha, the joys of having room-mates (“apartment-mates”). Been there, done that!

keychange

hahahahahahaha bright eyed and bushy tailed! I loved this note.

Fjellrev

Man, I don’t miss having a roommate.

Tabby

Ugh, some people are so entitled..

Sami Kelsh

If it makes you feel any better, I had a boyfriend whose flatmate once called him out on never volunteering to clean the bathroom. He said he thought the bathroom never needed cleaning because it always looked fine.

He was seriously shocked when she told him that it was always fine because she cleaned it every week. He thought it just stayed magically clean on its own without intervention. He lived alone when we were dating. You could totally tell that the whole not-cleaning-the-bathroom habit was one that died hard. Sigh. It’s not that hard to wash a pan. I’m pretty glad I live alone.

CelebriTEA

The pan issue sounds like my Very Spoiled son…grrr…
He thinks there is some magic "Cleaning Fairy who runs behind him
smh! He is 19

Roswell Strange

The roommate in question here is 20. I kinda get why he doesn’t want to do dishes; it’s his job – but he still has to take his turn every now and then or not get pissed when I do them at my pace.

In tonight’s steep-off chez sherapop, Stash Lemon Ginger is going sniff to sniff, sip to sip against Yogi Lemon Ginger, both in the filter bag format.

First observation: the Stash Lemon Ginger liquor is much darker, almost orange, than the Yogi Lemon Ginger, which is a cloudy yellow color.

Second observation: it might be the safflower in the Stash (not present in the Yogi), but something is muting the ginger in this blend, making it much less spicy and piquant and quite far from a fresh ginger infusion—my reference for excellence in this category.

Stash Lemon Ginger is potable, but nowhere near as likeable as Yogi Lemon Ginger. Yogi wins this round.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec
