Note to self: Cranberry does not mix well with rooibos. This is as unappealing as almost all of Stash’s fruit flavored herbals, even though it doesn’t have licorice. That is almost impressive to me.

This is a pretty good lavender tea in general. Pretty “light” flavor.

I bought this on a whim as I didn’t have any particularly lavender teas. It’s become a household favorite. I like it on occasion. It’s more floral than a jasmine tea would be, and for some it can be overpowering. I was oblivious to the vanilla notes until reading the reviews here. I don’t like citrus bergamot, but lavender bergamot is pretty good!

Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender, Vanilla

[Note: I have the bagged version, but am lazy.] I love both green and black tea, so it’s probably expected I like them together. It’s not the highest quality green tea out there, so it can carry that fishy-taste, especially if you brew it like black tea. Treat it nicely, it’ll be nice back. I love to toss in a cinnamon stick while I wait for the water to cool a bit. It elevates it, hides any aftertastes, etc.

Blegh. Another underwhelming fruit blend by Stash, ruined beyond hope of redemption by licorice. I only have one more fruit tea with this base blend to try. So far I’ve felt pretty much the same about all of them.

Too much cinnamon! It’s listed before the rooibos, which should have been a hint.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger

This was not my favorite chai ever. It’s heavier on the cardamom and lighter on the cloves than I prefer, and it tasted a little bland. I added some sweetener after the first sip, which helped perk it up a bit, and brought out the cinnamon, but I still didn’t love it. If you’re a big fan of cardamom, you might want to try it.

This is a little better than Stash’s other fruit flavored herbals. It has a strong fruity flavor, and I don’t taste as much clashing from the herbs. It still has a licorice aftertaste, though. I don’t really like it, but it’s somewhat more drinkable than the last few I’ve tried.

I had a cup of this while I was out at dinner last night. I really like peppermint, so I knew I wouldn’t dislike it, but I will say that this seems like a good quality peppermint. It had no bitterness to it, just a refreshing minty flavor, unlike some lower quality peppermint I’ve had in the past.

This is the first white tea I’ve had. It was rather bland and just a bit bitter. I couldn’t taste much of the raspberry flavor at all. Maybe I should have steeped it longer at a lower temperature?

The lower water temp will make a huge difference. Steeping a white tea in boiling water will usually cause bitterness.

Thanks. What temperature is good for a tea like this? The bag didn’t say, which is why I just used boiling water.

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.

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.

sad day. dragonfruit is yummy…

rosebudmelissa

I’ve never had it. I’d like to try it someday. I mean how often do you run across a fruit that cool looking, and with such an awesome name.

Skysamurai

I know right! Have you ever had a rambutan?? Now that’s a weird looking fruit but the inside is sooooooo good!

This is… kind of gross actually. It really clashes with itself, it might be the rooibos. I’m having really bad luck with my Stash teas today.

I’m not impressed with this one at all. It smells like blueberry, but it tastes more like licorice than than anything else, and is really rather bland. I really don’t think I’ll be buying this again.

I really didn’t like this one. It tasted strongly of artificial cream cheese flavoring, which was really off-putting to me for some reason.
