Had this twice today. First with boiling water. In my defense there are no directions on the envelop. The taste is cooling peppermint with a light hit of heat at the end from the ginger. Kind of neat. I can sort of taste the white tea but not really except I taste tea in the aftertaste. It just seems muted – even with some sweetener added.
The second cup I used 160F water. The flavor of the tea is fuller and sweeter this way. It is still somewhat muted from the bag but otherwise a simple pleasant cup on a bitter cold snow blowing day. Days like this, I don’t miss work at all (OK that’s pretty much everyday).
Hmmm, a Stash tea I have never tried. Back a little more than half dozen years ago, Stash was as close to high quality tea as was available locally. Goes to show there really has been some progress around my little town.
This is a bagged tea. It is predominantly peppermint in taste. Maybe I catch a hint of the ginger or probably I just think I do because I know it is in there. Kind of the same with the white tea base – except I actually do taste tea, just not well enough to say it is a white tea. Nothing amazing but pleasant enough. Thank you Ashmanra for the retro cuppa.
Non tea stuff – my 85 year old dad had a knee replacement Tuesday before Christmas. Surgery went well. His knee looks good considering, but his leg looks scary. I didn’t want him to do this during the holiday as doctors and the regular crew are hard to locate. When we do corner them, they aren’t saying much. I think he has a major infection. It doesn’t seem to be in the incision at this point but below his knee to his ankle is really concerning.
I like trying out the herbal teas that come out around the holidays because I get to enjoy some fun Christmas-y flavors and still fall asleep at a decent hour. The chocolate and peppermint flavors in this tea are nice, but the addition of lavender turned this from ‘just ok’ to something I’ve reached for multiple times over the last few weeks.

I think I’ll even bring a few tea bags of this with me when I go visit my family for Christmas. It’ll be nice for those evenings when I want to stay up and chat and (hopefully) avoid the candy and cookies that will inevitably be out no matter what hour it is. :)
This is a very fruity tea. After drinking the tea I looked up meyer lemon to see what it was and it is a fruit native to China that is thought to be a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. I notice that the ingredients don’t actually have any meyer lemon but it tastes like I imagine a meyer lemon would taste like.
This was very good and I plan to buy some next time I see it in the store.
Flavors: Lemon, Orange
After yesterday’s Twining’s Lemon Ginger I found some of this in my parent’s cupboard and figured I’d do a comparison.
This one is much smoother – the lemon and ginger flavors are combined better compared to the Twinings where the cup starts as a strong lemon and ends with a kick of ginger. Where that one was much more like lemonade, this one is very gingery (maybe even more so than Davids’ Ginger Beer.) However, the ginger isn’t as sharp in this one, a bit tingly and spicy but it’s much more mellow compared to Twinings. When summertime rolls around, I’ll have to cold brew this and see how it turns out.
Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Lemon, Spices
Double Bergamot Earl Gray Black Tea, not surprisingly, smelled and tasted more like the bergamot oil than black tea. My only complaint with this tea was that the bergamot tasted a bit bitter (an orange peel type of bitter) and I am not a fan of bitter.
Many earl grey teas capture the citrus taste without any bitter taste. I did enjoy this a bit but unfortunately not enough to recommend it.
Flavors: Bergamot, Bitter
I was looking for an alternative to hot chocolate with peppermint extract, and came across this one.
There is not much of a chocolate flavour in this tea; the mint is very overpowering. but I like it anyways. if you’re looking for chocolate tones, it’s not there. But if you like mint, you’ll like this one.
