It’s 33 degrees celcius today, more with the humidex. I am just relaxing with a glass of iced Moroccan Mint tea.
It’s a deep yellow colour, more yellow than the green tea alone. I have tried their premium organic green tea as well (see review) and the quality is excellent, so I was interested how the addition of mint would change it.
The combination of lemongrass and peppermint and spearmint reminds me a bit of lipton’s
Chamomile tea. All in all it is a cool and refreshing drink.
I used double bags and 200 mL of water for 2 min to boil this.
I enjoy the heat, and this drink reminds me of Turkish people sitting around with small glasses of mint tea.
I had a cup of tea this morning and decided to try something new and bizarre to highlight the flavor of the tea and cover any over steeped green tea flavors. I always hold my green tea down on the bottom of the cup while it’s brewing with a long spoon. When it was done brewing since I wanted a brothy flavor I added some of Penzey’s roasted garlic powder, and Penzey’s the now curry blend. This spice blend gave it a rich green tea savory curry broth flavor. The Penzey’s curry blend I used has a bunch of spices in it so it does not taste like plain curry powder.
Flavors: Grass, Salty
My first time tasting this tea I used about 8.5 oz of water and added nothing to it it was horribly disappointing, this time around I used a little under 8 oz of water and steeped it for at least 7-8 minutes using boiling water. Then I added a bit of ceylon cinnamon, penzley’s spice mixed cinnamon , and a bit of Silk unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. I found that this method really brought out the tiramisu/white chocolate flavor undertones. It is a soothing sugar free dessert at bedtime.
Flavors: Caramel, Cheesecake, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Creamy, Mocha, Rum, Sweet, White Chocolate
When I was in Paris a few years ago, right before bedtime I would head to the little cafe around the corner from my hotel to people watch and wind down with a cup of chamomile tea. It was very good chamomile tea that I often drank with a sweet. I learned that chamomile tea is especially good with just about any French pastry! By the end of my stay the waiter would see me, smile and exclaim, “Ah! Monsieur Chamomile!” Happy memories!
Anyway, this tea is absolutely the best chamomile that l’ve had since then. It’s appley sweet like chamomile is supposed to be. No off or bitter flavors that I have encountered in lower quality brands. It’s organic too. If you’re a Monsieur or Madame Chamomile like moi you will not find better! Now, maybe un petit peu de chocolat. Bonne nuit mes amis!
Flavors: Apple, Sweet
I received a single bag of this with a fiber arts swap. Have a mentioned that I have had a consistent slight sense of smell for a little over a month? It’s very slight, and a lot of the time I can’t even tell what it is that I’m smelling (although somehow I always know what I’m smelling when I clean the cat box) When I tore open the packet, I could smell cinnamon. Mmmm. One of my favorite scents. Really, it smelled delicious. It smelled good brewing too. The taste, however, is disappointing. I can taste cinnamon, and I think I can taste a tang of apple, but I’m not a fan of chamomile, and I think that might be what tipped this for me. Also, I get a sort of dry mouth feel that I sometimes get from cinnamon. All in all, glad to have tried it, but I won’t be buying any more.
I was really impressed by the quality of this tea. The first thing you notice is the aroma. The colour is a really nice yellow. The taste is really good too.
First and second steepings really good. I recommend this tea.
I brewed this using 2 tea bags and 200 mL of water and left it for 2 minutes at around 170 to 180 approx.
Last night I was doing virgin cherry koolaid shots. I mention this because the bright red colour of this tea reminds me of that. Actually, there is strawberry in it too! Lol
On the first 120 mL shot of this, I get a lot of the berries acidity. On the second steeping, a lot more of the aroma of perhaps liquorice and whatever else they are putting in it.
On the third steep most of the colour is gone, now it is brownish. It’s a warm flavour now, not unpleasant.
Also note that there isn’t any goji berry in this, just flavouring!
I hate this tea. I think the coconut ruins it for me. I was all in for mango oolong and then coconut came along, and I was like, no thanks!
Trying to drink it in a shot glass to see if that makes it better. Maybe I will cool it down to kill the flavour.
One minute steepings are enough.
I got a couple bad of this tea from one of my teachers, and thought I’d give it a try. Stash is one of my favorite tea companies, so I ignored the fact that it is a black tea and breed it up. Needless to say, I fell in love with this tea. It had just enough vanilla flavor, and the chai was spicy enough. I ended up getting different vanilla chai options due to the fact that my local grocery stores do not care this variety of stash.
A sample from Roswell Strange. This has to be one of the oddest combinations ever? I mean, mate, black, herbal…? Surely it’s hardly herbal if it’s got both mate and black tea in it, neither of which are renowned for their caffeine free-ness. I can get behind the idea of mate and black, though, and caramel works well with darker teas as a flavour, so…maybe?I have another question. What’s monk fruit? Please don’t say fruit eaten by monks. I could google, but the people at work would think I’m odd. Or odder than they already think I am, anyway. Maybe that’s one for later.
I gave the bag 3 minutes in boiling water, and it’s brewed up to a medium golden-brown, no additions. The initial taste is very heavy on the mate – quite earthy and pungent with a burnt coffee-like aftertaste. There’s also something smoky, although I can’t pinpoint exactly what. Maybe the mate? The monk fruit? Ha. I didn’t get much caramel initially, but as the cup cools I can begin to taste it. It’s a little on the artificial side, but not too badly, and there is a hint of salt. The salt actually works really well with the savoury flavour of the mate and the smoke – somehow it helps to bring everything together. Then with the underlying richness of the caramel, it actually makes for a pretty decent cup. I’m not even sure how it is that earth, coffee, smoke, salt and caramel taste good together, but they kind of do so there you go. My befuddled morning brain can’t make any more sense of things than that.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Maple, Medicinal, Root Beer, Sarsaparilla, Spices, Sweet, Vanilla
I do find the cinnamon a tad sickly sweet, which is dislike. It does taste like real cinnamon though, rather than that artificial flavour. Otherwise, I really like the spices and rooibos, however I wouldn’t mind a stronger rooibos flavour.

Monday – Green Tea / Day 2 of Lion’s Tea Challenge
Very basic and generic grocery store quality bagged tea. I do find this a bit astringent and a tad bitter. The green tea is fairly mild, not really vegetal or grassy, but it tastes like a green tea.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Green
