I was really smooth and dumped nearly a full timolino of good jasmine green tea all over my desk at work (luckily just on the desk and no important papers or electronics). I didn’t pack any other green tea today but I seriously need a boost today so I picked up a bag of this at the caf at work. This stuff is pretty decent-better than the Tim Horton’s green tea (and cheaper since I just bought tea bag and not a cup of hot water as well (although I still hate paying over $1 for one tea bag!)). This’ll be my new go-to tea if I ever forget my green tea at home.
Cup #2 of tea at work. The pickings for herbal teas are slim. I knew reading the ingredients on the bag this tea wasn’t going to be great but my goodness this was bad. When I took the bag out of the package it smelled like vitamin c chewables. The taste was like orange drink (you know- the kind made with crystals?) heated up in a mug. I took a couple sips and dumped it down the sink. Yuck.
Flavors: Artificial, Orange
Mate is just one of those flavors I have a hard time getting behind, so I was definitely okay with not being able to taste it in this cup.
The cocoa is more of a scent than a present flavor, but the licorice root is just enough to make it deceptively sweet, so if you close your eyes you can definitely imagine the flavor. The blend of peppermint and spearmint adds an element of depth without being overpowering.
All the pick me up of mate without the mate taste. Count me in!
Due to some recent financial issues, I’ve decided to drink my way through my current tea stash before buying any more. Today for my before-work tea, I found two lonely Zen tea bags at the bottom of my tea drawer. It had been awhile since I’d drank it. Zen has never been a favourite, but I didn’t remember disliking it either. I decided to do it latte style. I carefully steeped two bags according to my tea steeping app in roughly 3/4th cup of water, and warmed a bit of soy milk on the stove. I then threw the soymilk in my Vitamix for about a minute on high, producing a lovely foam.
I then mixed and sweetened with agave. (I’ve been doing this all week with various types of tea with great success)
Maybe my tastes have changed. Maybe my frequent trips to DavidsTea has put me into a new tea bracket. Or maybe when I wasn’t looking lemony cleaner fell into my mug.
I drank it, it wasn’t horrible. But, I’m definitely glad those were my last two bags.
(Though its quite likely I’ll find more because my one year old recently went through a phase of opening the tea draw and carrying off tea bags)
I find it odd that this does not taste at all of green tea.
Flavors: Lemongrass, Spearmint
I completely stayed away from chai teas when I first started drinking tea regularly, and incorrectly assumed that I would never like them. I’m visiting family, and they offered this tea to me. It’s pretty good for a bagged tea…decent black tea strength, with nice chai spices. It doesn’t overwhelm you with either…or maybe I’ve just become accustomed to strong Assam teas, haha. I had been thinking about giving chai another shot, and this made me want to look for some good ones. I’ll try some Masala chais, some green chais and maybe a rooibos chai next. I’ve finally realized never to say I don’t like a whole huge group of teas, because I’ll most likely change my mind and love them later. :P
Quite a spicy one!
When I brewed it for the first time, it tickled my nose.
To be honest, the best thing you can do with this is add a bit of sugar, pop it in some popsicle makers, let it freeze and you got a good, cold summer snack!
When brewed, though, it was a bit too spicy for my tastes. I could barely taste the green tea.
A bit expensive for a tea to make popsicles with, but you could try to replicate the mixture and make a large batch. (luckily, I got it as a gift.)
At the boyfriends today, trying to play Don’t Starve Together, which is proving a challenge. But I have tea from his well stocked tea bar!
This is actually really good. Creamy, lush feeling. I’m liking it. When I’m allowed to buy teas again, then I might get some of this.
As it stands, though, I need to be on a buying hiatus for a while, in any case.
This smells simply like strong, black tea. From what I can tell, the tea leaves are small and broken in the bag, but now powdery. It reminds me of the Lipton I normally use to make sweet iced tea.
I got distracted (again!) and let the tea steep too long but it’s still good. It has a slight artificial taste after adding honey and cream, but I think it may be due to over-steeping. It’s even good after cooling off.
This tea is amazing plain, with sugar, or sugar and milk. I love to make a 16 oz cup using two tea bags. Followed by two tablespoons of pure sugar and then filling the rest of the cup with Vitamin D milk and stirring till all sugar is dissolved. So amazing to drink in the morning and such a better alternative to coffee. Chi tea really is a calming yet awakening experience.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger
So sad this is no longer available at Starbucks. This has been my go to tea latte for years!! And of course being a tea newb back then it never occurred to me that instead of paying $4+ per drink, to just buy the tin and make them myself. The fact that Teavana took over Starbucks recently and swapped out the Tazo tea was the ‘kick in the butt’ I needed to purchase the tin. To be honest I have 3 tins of this at home… Whoops. It was hard to come by so I wanted to stock up!
I’m happy I stocked up as I love this tea! I tried it as just a straight plain tea tonight and it was still delicious (even though I’m used to the latte version). Its got sort of an apple=y taste. Not just straight vanilla but delicious none the less and will always be a favourite. Going to try it as a home made latte next time :)It tastes rather sweet and most of all like … Vanilla Rooibos Parfait: one of a kind!
Flavors: Apple, Rooibos, Vanilla
