I will be stocking up on this and Christmas Morning this season. They are often 2 for $5 or $6 at the grocery store.
So, I though I’d switch up my “at work” breakfast today a little bit (typically, I get hashbrowns and chocolate work from A&W) – mostly because the walk to work was especially cold and I just wanted something to heat me up. So, I opted for tea instead of chocolate milk. It couldn’t hurt, right? All the tea my local A&W serves is Stash brand – and as far as bagged tea goes that’s typically a favourite brand of mine. So, strawberry pomegranate it is!
Dry, the tea bag smelled very much like strawberry kool aid drink mix: sweet and fruity, is a bit artificial (but in the best way – who doens’t love strawberry kool aid?). The was also a nice sort of tang to it, a sharpness if you will. I steeped the bag for five minutes in whatever temp. water it was that A&W had given me. The liquor is a very red brown colour and smells like sharp, tangy strawberries and… oh, what is that?
I’m smelling that signature rooibos smell right now. Hmm… I thought this was a herbal. Time to read the ingredients listed on the teabag now. So, the teabag says “herbal” on the front, but in the back ingredients there IS rooibos listed. I mean, it’s not like I dislike rooibos tea – it’s just not what I had expected for breakfast this morning.
The taste is initially very tart and tangy strawberry – like stawberry kool aid tastes before you dump in that crap load of sugar it needs to get sweet. Then, it gives way pretty quickly to a VERY woody rooibos taste. Considering I’m a fan of rooibos tea in general, I’m not minding the rooibos here but if you’re NOT a rooibos fan you probably really want to stay clear of this one. Finally, the aftertaste is a short lived mellow strawberry. I’m not totally sure where the pomegranate is fitting into this: it’s not really standing out at all.
Overall, this is pretty nice for a bagged tea, but I’m not really loving the “false advertising”. I like rooibos, but this morning I was in the mood for some straight up herbal deliciousness.
This is one of my husband’s favorite teas but I hadn’t tried it until now. I like it! The tea bag smells very peachy and the tea smells peachy as well. It definitely tastes best to me when sweetened and with milk added. The sugar brings out the peach flavor more, I think maybe because peaches are naturally sweet so peach flavor without sweetness is kind of incongruous. The milk smooths the flavor and texture. Also, I’d like to note that although I love the fruit, artificial peach flavor is not something I enjoy, but I liked the peach in this tea. Maybe that means most of the flavor is real vs artificial?
All in all, I would drink this plain, but it’s definitely nicer with milk and a little sugar. This tea isn’t super remarkable or memorable to me, but pleasant for sure.
This tea was very mild. Well, really it was just weak. Granted, I might not have gotten the water to /exactly/ the right temperature, because I don’t have a kettle or or stovetop with which to boil water right now. (I rely on cruddy microwaving techniques to get by. Oh, dorm life…) This tea was minty with a hint of citrus, and I caught the faintest bit of vanilla as well. Even so, most of these flavors were subpar, even the mint. It was almost as if they weren’t even there. (As far as the aroma goes though, it had a lot of minty zing.)
But it’ll certainly give you fresh breath!
I likely wouldn’t try this again. If you’re a fan of mild minty teas, this might be for you.
Today’s work shift just flew right by! I mean, that’s probably because I was training today so I had someone to talk to and lots of cover which gave my something to do consistently – but still. Actually, I sort of talked myself hoarse. Oops. Also, I officially sent out my swap with LovelyLotus today, so I can actually say good riddance to the last of that tea! I’m so very happy to be rid of it, and I genuinely hope that it’s much more appreciated there than it was here.
I made some of this in the morning and had it at work. What I did was use two bags for two cups of tea steeped for five minutes each in boiling water. I tried lots of Moroccan Mint teas, but honestly this bagged version is my favourite and one of few bagge teas that I feel I need to keep around.
I drank this at room temp. just like I’ve been doing with most of my mint teas lately. It was very pleasant and a great balance between fresh spearmint and peppermint and light and grassy (in the good way) green tea. Yum! Sorry other tea companies, but Stash just does this one RIGHT. It’s my go to when I want a ‘lighter’ but still flavourful mint tea.
This was the tea of the afternoon. The BF and I had some tea at a cafe en route to the Berkeley Art Museum and the only teas they had were from Stash so I decided to try this.
When I think of Christmas flavors, I guess I think of cookies, eggnog, gingerbread and things of that nature. This is a white tea with ginger and peppermint. It didn’t really remind me of the holidays at all, but it turned out to be a good after lunch tea because I think it helped out with digestion as well as my overall perkiness levels. I do not think I would buy this for myself, but certainly wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered.
Another one of my holiday favorites. One sip of this tea and I am filled with this cozy feeling that I love. I love the way the mint intertwines with the vanilla, it kind of lingers around after each sip. The aroma is sweet and spicy and smooth. I love it.
I think this is what I am drinking right now. Its freezing cold here: 31 degrees, so I finally turned on the heat, and its only sort of working. I’m having oatmeal and tea to stay warm. I love chai.
i’ve also been saving this sample from KallieBoo! for a while now, and today turned out to be the perfect day to drink it.
the slight vanilla notes make a chai even better for me. kinda mellows things out around the edges. a friendlier chai. plus the bonus of no caffeine. the sky is full of clouds and i’ve felt a chill all day. in my second cup i added a bit of half & half, just to really turn the comfort factor up to 11.
this past weekend i hiked Old Rag here in Virginia. it’s a pretty famous hike. tina fey mentions it in her book for instance. and let me tell you, it’s hard. i’m still sore. and it was an awesome day. i drank some green tea on the summit.
Good, sensible, plain old Chamomile. I drink this to relax or if my stomach is acting up. It keeps me nice and relaxed through stressful times. When the stress is high, I throw 3 bags into my Nalgene, brew it up and sip it throughout the day.
This is my favorite herbal tea. It is zippy and easy on my stomach (I have acid reflux). It’s best iced with honey.
Hmmm. I’m not getting vanilla, in either the aroma or the taste. Just honeybush. And I’m not that big a fan of honeybush. I just wanted to try this one on the off chance that vanilla flavoring would make it tolerable for me. It might have, if I’d been able to taste it. :/
A review of Premium Green Tea by Stash Tea Company
Company: Stash Tea Company
Tea Name: Premium Green Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: light golden brown
Water Temp: 170 Fahrenheit
Time: 2-3 minutes
Green tea seems to consume my day of late. When I am not having a cup of powdered juice than I am having a cup of Stash’s Premium Green Tea. I used freshly boiled water, after placing of one tea bag in my cup, and having added the boiled water into the cup, I leave it to steep for few minutes. The tea’s aroma is like that of seaweeds and astringency. As I sip of the tea it is warm on my palette and as I swallow there is that slightly bitter after taste. It is not unpleasant at all. I rather expect for it to taste exactly as it does.
Overall tasting notes: freshly of the sea, salt, marine algae are what come to mind.
Cup’s characteristic: cup of medicinal tea and very astringent
Liquor color: light golden brown
Taste: This tea has a great ‘umami’ taste that is reveal with each sip or throughout its entirety; the flavor comes through and through, it does not dissipate.
One of my coworkers gave me this to try. Steeped, with a bit of milk and sugar, it smells exactly like pumpkin pie! The taste is watery though, with no actual pumpkin flavor and some spices in the background. Kind of disappointing, but not a bad tea.
One of my favorites from Stash. Being a sufferer from acid reflux, due to it being a side effect of my blood pressure pills, this tea soothes and lessens the impact from that problem. It also tends to make me sleepy, so I drink a cup about a half an hour before I lay down for a night’s sleep.
This combination sounded interesting, so I decided to pick up a box. While the tea has a pleasurable taste, I found the dried Blueberry scent very oft-putting. It just doesn’t smell natural and kind of dampens your enjoyment of this blend.
I used two bags this time and i was able to get a pretty good chocolate flavor. I’d say this tea is pretty enjoyable, actually.
