This is not bad for a rooibos tea. It has a bit of that smokey/medicinal flavor, but for the most part it tastes very much like strawberry jam. It’s sweet with a bit of tartness, and has a very pleasant strawberry flavor. The strawberry and rooibos flavors actually blend surprisingly well, too. I don’t know that I’ll buy more of this, but I’ll enjoy drinking this cup.
Flavors: Jam, Rooibos, Smoke, Strawberry, Sweet, Tart
This is just not my day for sampling teas. This is minty and somewhat fruity, but I don’t like the way the flavors interact. It’s just kind of weird. It seems I don’t like many of Stash’s fruit flavored herbals.
Flavors: Fruity, Mint
I’m finally getting around to trying the rest of the Stash samples that I got several months ago. I picked this one today because I wanted something fruity, but not a Hibiscus tea. While this does have some Hibiscus in it, it is what I was looking for. It’s very lemony, a bit tart, but not too tart, and faintly herbaceous. I like it, and I’ll probably end up buying more in the future.
Flavors: Lemon, Lemongrass, Rosehips
The company I work for is putting together the Christmas loot bags for our clients and tea is part of the bag. They had some left over and it’s how I got to score a handful of different Stash teas. I’ve been meaning to try Stash but at the same time didn’t feel like spending money on it because if I didn’t like them, now I’d have a whole box of it to drag around my cupboard.
This one’s ok. I used double the water this bag could take. I knew I wouldn’t want to get out of bed to resteep so I did double the quantity from the get go and I just left the bag inside seeing how it’s herbal.
It’s definitely convenient. I haven’t done bagged teas in so long I forgot now nice it is sometimes to not have all the accoutrements dragging around, cleaning them after and … stuff. It gets messy in the morning when one reaches over to snooze the 4.30 am alarm and knocks over the kettle or the infuser with the spent leaves. Now there’s nothing but a mug! And yes, it’s not too bad. I don’t feel like I’ve sacrificed my evening tea pleasuring (heh) for the sake of convenience.
(But something in this tea makes me sleepy. I should have gone for caffeine.)
I won this tea as a door prize! For a bagged Chai, it really wasn’t bad. Not nearly as spicy as the name would suggest, but I found the combination of spices pleasant and it took milk pretty well. Not something I’m going to be purchasing, but I’d drink it again in a pinch.
I wasn’t a big fan of this. It smelled strongly of artificial caramel with a bit of apple and cinnamon, but it tasted really bland. Something about the dissonance between the smell and taste was really off-putting to me.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Cinnamon, Wood
I tried a few sips of this clear, and it seemed quite spiced — I think I might have to have a proper steep of it this way sometime and see what I think. However, my main objective was chai with milk and sugar today, and so that’s what I’ve made.
The spice is pleasant and comforting, though I wish there was a stronger flavour overall. I’m not sure what exactly, but it feels like it could do with one thing more to just make the flavour pop and really be delectable. But as is, it’s good, spiced, relaxing.
This is one of those teas that just smells like OH MY GOODNESS. If this tea was available as a scent I would probably buy it and let it aerate throughout my room when I was in an apple-y, harvest-y mood.
Unfortunately, while the scent promises an apple caramel maple delight, the taste doesn’t quite deliver. The maple comes through a lot more than the apple, but it is mainly scent over flavour. (I actually said, when I smelled it, that I hoped this wouldn’t be the taste, but oh well.)
Still, it doesn’t taste bad, just not anywhere near as delicious to the scent. I bet that, if paired with a slice of pie or something harvest-y, it would be a really nice complement. On its own, however, it could do to be stronger.
This tea is a wonderful, full bodied, wake me up, kind of tea. The taste is brisk with a smooth, rounded, malty taste. Irish breakfast is a mixture of several Assam teas and is best, I think, served straight up, piping hot. It’s best consumed in the morning unless caffeine doesn’t bother you. A great way to start the day!
Not bad for a bagged tea…just something I got on a whim after seeing it in a store, smells good , medium level of bergamot , mild flavor , smooth black tea in the background with hardly no bitter notes . Good for when you feel like making something fast and easy and nothing involved.
I’ve been avoiding drinking this one for awhile because I thought for sure that it would be bad. as I opened up the package and interesting smell wafted to my nose. I’m still not quite sure of what it was or how I really felt about it. As it has begun to cool down, it’s actually tasting better than I thought. It’s almost like a smoothie.
Holy crap. So, I’ve always felt like the tea bag version of this was decent, so I impulse-bought a bag of the loose-leaf kind a while ago, and didn’t actually open it until now. Smelling the open bag is kind of like being punched in the face with spice, and not in a good way. There’s definitely clove oil, but my little bottle of clove essential oil smells mild by comparison, so I’m guessing the rest of the face-punching is cardamom oil and “natural flavour of cinnamon”. I brewed 1tsp in 8oz of water for 4min and immediately added some sugar and milk, but it was still overpoweringly spicy and I could barely taste the black tea. I initially tried a 3min 2nd steep, but that just created slightly spicy hot water. Now the leaves are back in the hot water and they’re over in the corner of my kitchen having a time out and thinking about what they’ve done. I can’t win with this tea. I’m considering blending a little with a sturdy black tea to see if that balances it out, maybe simmer the whole thing in milk on the stove and add plenty of sugar. If all else fails, I think I could put a little in my essential oil diffuser and use it as a home fragrance. WTF Stash, I think of you as one of the better grocery store brands, how is this so bad?
This smells like vanilla and honey, definitely. On tasting, I get a rooibos-y flavour that I guess is the honeybush base, citrus, and a bit of honey. It’s nice, but it’s not like, rocking my world or anything. :) A good evening-but-not-bedtime sort of tea.
Flavors: Citrus, Honey, Vanilla
