Admittedly, I’m not a big fan of Rooibos flavour in most Rooibos based tea. I can taste it in this tea but it doesn’t bother me here. It seems to mingle well with the cinnamon/vanilla combination. I find this tea to be calming and enjoyable. I didn’t buy this tea myself, it was given to me as part of a Christmas gift from a friend. I’m really grateful she got it for me because I don’t think I would have bought it due to the fact that I’ve tried other teas with cinnamon and with vanilla and generally, I’ve been left disappointed but this one lived up to it’s name, having solid flavours. I was pleasantly surprised. Another caffeine-free herbal tea that I can drink at night and not worry about it keeping me up.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Rooibos, Vanilla
Someone at work bought Stash’s herbal sampler for everyone to drink and I couldn’t help but go through it to see if there was anything that caught my attention. Turns out, of the blends that were left after the employees dug in this was the only one I’d yet to try! So, got on that after the dentist. Of course, I wasn’t allowed to drink anything hot that day so I had to brew this up and then let it cool down to room temp before I could drink it. Licorice Spice is definitely an accurate name; the dominating flavours were anise and licorice root but they were supported by notes of cinnamon and clove. Also, I found this just a touch peppery. Pretty nice overall.

This tea contains some of my favorite ingredients (bergamot and lavender) but it was just too strong for my tastes. It was very pungent in odor and flavor. I kept decreasing the steep time and at 2 minutes it made an alright breakfast tea. I am a huge fan of earl grey but this tea was nothing special.
Recommended for people who love a strong breakfast tea.
Brewed using 2 bags in 24 oz of boiling water with a 2 minute steep time.
Flavors: Artificial, Astringent, Bergamot, Citrus, Floral
Grabbed a box of this for work since I’m been through the majority of the grocery store tea section and I just keep being disappointed. I’m only going to be able to drink a limited number of cups of tea in my life and I can’t help but think of all the nice things in my cabinet at home that I’d rather be drinking.
I’ve had a lot of bagged stash tea in the past…actually just about all of it since I had at one purchased their “year of tea” so I was a little apprehensive about this since I remember not being fond of their earl gray.
This is surprisingly pleasant. The black tea isn’t very upfront but at least it isn’t bold in a bad way, and the bergamot is much better quality than most. I imagine they must have reformulated sometime in the last decade or that I’m thinking of their double earl gray which probably isn’t for people who don’t take milk or sugar. Ibe been wary of earl gray for awhile now since I’ve had so many bad ones, but now it looks like I should pick some loose leaf up.
My wife bought this tea for me about a year ago. It found its way in the back of the cupboard for awhile, and I finally decided to finish it off today.
This is a good tea for a rainy/cold day. The ginger notes are pretty strong. I can’t really taste the lemon (maybe it comes out more if I added sugar), but the overall flavor is nice. Despite the ginger notes, it’s pretty light and refreshing.
My mother-in-law loved this tea more, so the majority of it was sent down to her. However, it got me through last winter, on the cold and bitter days, and I’ve finally decided to give it one last sip. It’s pretty bittersweet, but I’m glad to start drinking the old stuff, before moving on to buying more tea. Which will probably happen anyway. Ha. Ha.
Note: This is a review of the loose leaf and not bagged.
The loose leaf does not contain cinnamon like the bagged variety does. This is a very noticeable difference which I did not realize until I took my first sip.
The bagged Orange Spice has been a staple of mine for over a decade. I was so excited when I realized it was available in loose leaf. I was very disappointed.
I’ve been wondering about this tea for a while now, and so I picked up a box. I really enjoyed Celestial Seasoning’s True Blueberry Tea done up iced so I was curious about this tea.
Wow, what a disappointment. I brewed it up just like I would the other tea: 2L of water, cold brewed with 5 tea bags for approximately 24h. Instead of the TRUE blueberry taste you get a little bit of a blueberry followed by a sour taste that reminds me of Stash’s Meyer Lemon Tea. I will use up this tea by throwing 1-2 teabags in with Celestial Seasoning’s Blueberry Tea but will not repurchase.
Honestly, this is close to the 10th tea from Stash I’ve tried and I only cared for 1 (raspeberry Hibiscus). I think I will discontinue trying anymore from this company.
This tea is exactly what the name would suggest: a strong, chai-like spice blended with a licorice flavor that leaves a lingering sweetness in the back of your throat. Personally, I find this one too sweet to drink on an everyday basis, but I could see myself really enjoying it when I have a cold.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Licorice, Sweet
This may be the best bagged Earl Grey tea I’ve ever tried! The bergamot flavor is bold without being overpowering and the black tea base is robust and super smooth. I almost always take Earl Grey with milk, but this one was lovely with nothing added: plenty of flavor, but no bitterness or astringency. I may have to pick some of this up when I finish off my Republic of Tea Earl Greyer, because I like this one even better and it’s about half the price!
Flavors: Bergamot, Smooth
I got a massage this morning which was amazing and saw that the Massage Envy location I was at had these teabags. Cranberry Pomegranate is one of my favorite flavor combinations in other companies so I decided to pick one up and take it home to review it.
First, upon opening the packet it smells hopeful. However, it does not smell like pomegranate or cranberry at all. Instead it smells of blueberries. It’s almost like Teavanas blueberry pineapple in smell… I wonder if it will taste as such? This is ironic because it is a mix of rooibos, hibiscus, and cranberry and pomegranate flavorings so why would it be giving off that aroma? I do not know.
After steeping it I was very disappointed. It wasn’t the worst thing to ever grace the planet but it was not close to great either. I was a cup of blaaaaaaaaaaaaah and didn’t really taste of anything remote to cranberry/pomegranate.
Oh well, I have more teas to love.
Taking down our Christmas decorations this morning (finally), and thought this would be appropriate.
I’ve been spoiled by loose leaf tea. The CTC method produces a taste I just can’t really compare to other teas. It’s its own flavor, I suppose. Nice in a pinch/busy morning where I’m bustling about, passing by my tea cup every five minutes for a quick sip.
