The green rooibos was the appealing part for me. I’ve never tried it before.
I sniffed the dry bag and had a mini panic attack— surely they wouldn’t DARE put stevia in this tea! I reread the ingredients and breathed a sigh of relief. It’s just naturally sweet from all the fruit.
The hibiscus somehow doesn’t make my lips pucker with disgust! It’s a miracle. I taste lots of cherries and jam, and even a echo of wine in the aftertaste. Not bad! I’m starting to reconsider Tazo.
Another sample from The Cookie Lady! I’ve tried quite a lot from Tazo, but I don’t remember ever seeing this one before. (Maybe it’s discontinued?) Anyway, it’s lovely! I don’t notice the base tea at all, but the apricot flavor is spot-on. The vanilla is more subtle, but it definitely imparts a nice creamy mouth-feel to the blend. This is one of those teas that tastes like you added milk to it even though you didn’t. I would definitely drink this one again!
Flavors: Apricot, Creamy
I liked this a lot more than I thought I would!! The mint and lemongrass complimented the green tea perfectly… I never think I’m a big fan of green teas but then a tea like this comes along and I really like it… probably because of the addition of the mint and lemongrass. It’s just a nice, soothing blend, perfect for getting down to work in the afternoon.
Notes: Teabags, Made specifically for pitchers of tea
Leaves are tea fannings
Dry leaves smell strongly of orange peel, cinnamon, and hibiscus
Pouring hot water over tea bag resulted in immediate dark red liqour, resembling Kooaid
Brewed tea smells like hibiscus and oranges
Brewed leaves hardly expanded
Head Notes: Hibiscus
Body Notes: Tropical Flvors
End Notes: Orange
Tea is extremely sour. I ws not expecting the astringent and tart flavor.
I added a little bit of unrefined cane sugar to my glass and it made the tea sooo much better.
With Sugar, the tea is light, fruity, and refreshing.
I would share this tea with my friends on a summer afternoon.
It would have ti be a really hot day for me to truly appreciate and enjoy this tea.
I give this tea three stars because I like the packagin, the liquor, and the flavor.
I probably wouldn’t buy this tea again.
Flavors: Hibiscus, Orange, Tropical
My husband picked up a box of this but really doesn’t like it. I’m hoping I will so that we’ll be able to finish it off. The dry tea is very strong and smells like orange zest. It’s very powerful. There is also a sweetness there so my fingers are crossed that this will taste just like a warm orange marmalade.
It definitely seems more tame while steeping. It does smell like marmalade and also a bit like orange juice. I can also smell a touch of mint. The color is a deep, deep orange. It’s almost red. The taste of the tea is very tart so I think next time I’ll try steeping this at a lower temperature for less time. Maybe I’ll even add some raw sugar and vanilla, or maybe make some vanilla sugar, to see if I can make this taste similar to my favorite marmalade.
Oh wow, this is even worse once it has cooled. I’m going to have to do my research on this one to see if I can find other ways to make it. I reheated my cup and added some heavy cream thinking it might be something like an orangesicle, but apparently even the cream doesn’t want to play nicely with this one. I thought with the heavy cream it would be fine, but nope. They’ve just gone their separate ways inside the cup. It looks grainy but doesn’t taste bad. I think it might have even helped a little.
Flavors: Mint, Orange Zest, Sweet, Tart
Well, I was thrown off my Daylight Savings more than usual. As a result, I rushed out of the house without my mug and other tea things that I brought home for the weekend. So I had to make do with teabags and paper cups at work. I don’t think that this tea is necessarily that terrible, but the paper cup really makes it taste like malty paper. I guess the upside is that the tea is not bitter at all! I wouldn’t buy these teabags for myself, but it was a nice quick fix at work this morning.
Noooope. I yoinked a bag of this from my office mate just to try it. I hated the caffeinated version of this tea but somehow thought the decaf option might taste better. I was wrong. Even rice milk can’t salvage this mess. Who puts black pepper in a chai anyway? That’s all I can taste here. Down the sink it goes, even though that means wasting what used to be perfectly good rice milk until this tea tainted it.
Flavors: Black Pepper
I am graduating from a strictly herbal tea drinking to having some black tea! Hopefully it means that I’m at least feeling better even if my cough isn’t gone yet. I am coughing less and I am convinced that my cups of chamomile are helping with that because even cough drops weren’t working that well for a while.
This week has been a very stressful week for me. This past weekend, I managed to pick up this tea when I was sick with a headcold and the mix of vanilla, caramel, and ginger has been a dream come true to my sore throat and my morale.
But that wasn’t the hard part of this week.
Tuesday, I received news that my Alma Mater Sweet Briar College will be closing its doors for the very last time in August. People may think that a women’s college is nothing more than a finishing school and isn’t worth getting worked up about, but to many women (and their families) it is more than just a school. It is the place where they first found out that they can do more than what they thought they could do.
When I first received a pink letter in the mail during my senior year of high school, I was intrigued. What type of school would send out their material in a pink envelope? Little did I know that this letter was akin to my Hogwarts letter into a school that would finally let this shy, sensitive girl develop into a strong, independent woman. But, even more than that. When I was young my family moved around a lot. We weren’t military, but we had to move because of my dad’s job. I never grew up in a place that I called home because I was constantly being uprooted and having to start all over in a new place. My four years at Sweet Briar ended up being a place that I felt comfortable enough to call home for the very first time and mean it.
The Alumnae are trying to save our school because we all believe in a woman’s education. It is hard to describe a place where all of your ideas are taken seriously by everybody there. Sometimes, it is hard to get that in a regular co-ed college or university, especially if you are in the sciences or engineering. It may seem strange, but when you don’t have to worry about what other people will think about how you look, it is easier to remember that you are all there to do the same thing: challenge yourself and strive to become the best that you can be.
So, without dragging this on for too long, if you know of somebody who would like to help save Sweet Briar College, please feel free to visit www.savingsweetbriar.com.
Sorry for sounding a little bit like an advertisement, but thank you for listening.
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
