A really, solidly good tea. Refreshing, soothing. AND THERES A NARWHAL ON THE INSIDE
I bought some more of this again when I went to Trader Joe’s today because I was worried they might sell out. It is pretty hard to beat the price of this rooibos and I like it in the evening time or as an after lunch tisane. When liquid stevia is added, it becomes much more like a dessert tea. Upped the rating slightly.
A basic black tea with a slight fruitiness pretty much covers it, nothing remarkable. I’ve been pretty sick this week, and shout out to this tea for being easy to make and being able to take the addition of honey and cough drops well without tasting strange.
I found this wonderful Rooibos at the Joe’s I visit. I got one can. Returned a week later and got another for myself and one for a friend. Another two weeks-ALL GONE! I haven’t been able to get again-they are not sure it they will be getting more in. This was a big hit they said. Basically it is a blend of rooibos, natural pumpkin flavor, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I will say that I personally taste cinnamon and nutmeg the most. I drink this without sugar, or a scant if I am enjoying after dinner, for dessert. Value of this is wonderful, 20 sachets for $3.99. You also get a cool tin-which I will proudly say I am going to use to put Teavana Tea in. I am also going to tell them that, when they try to sell me a darn tin-for the 20th time-and that is on just one visit!
So I heard this tea was quite tasty from Tealizzy and I got some today! Well she was right…it’s quite good. Made a cup this afternoon while cooking up a batch of roasted butternut squash soup. It went great with my Pfeffernusse cookie from TJ’s (love that store!). I added a little honey and steeped for about 3 minutes and was surprised how nice it was as I usually don’t like rooibos teas much. It seems to remind me of something I currently drink, either Oatmeal Raisin Cookie or Monkey Bread from Della Terra. Not sure why but might be the mix of spices. I recommend trying it.
This tea is okay….I usually drink my tea with honey or agave, but today I tried this tea with some eggnog. I don’t like my teas with milk, but the eggnog gave it that extra “kick” it needed.
After getting used to loose-leaf tea blends, this one seemed pretty dull. It’s not very strong, being an herbal tea, but it usually just comes out tasting like hot water that someone dropped a mint into. If you steep it for long enough and add the right amount of sweetener, it begins to taste like tea, but it seems too difficult for a simple bagged tea.
Backlog from last night. I saw this at Trader Joe’s and had to buy some, considering the price ($4) which also includes the tin.
I’ve been looking for a nice pumpkin tea and haven’t been too impressed with the options out there. This is a pyramid tea bag which has plenty of tea in it unlike some companies (ahem, Republic of Tea) which are skimpy.
This was pleasant enough but I really did not get much pumpkin flavor. I do get the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves but in that respect it’s like practically every other rooibos chai spice type of blend I’ve had. This is a pumpkin pie spice tea. It’s okay especially considering the price but I might need to go back to “Sweet Autumn” by Lupicia.
It’s too bitter for my taste, so unleas u like bitter & a strong taste, I would not recommend it.
**A review of Green Tea by Trader Joe’s
Company: Trader Joe’s
Tea Name: Green Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: light brown
Water Temp: 180 Fahrenheit
Time: 2 minutes
I have been enjoying this green tea since rediscovering it again after my herbal tea trials and tribulation as it now seems to have been. I mean that herbal teas, is a difference experience all together and at times not with good results. Anyhow, I am back to drinking plain green teas. Using freshly boiled water I put one tea bag in my cup and leave it to steep for two minutes. The tea’s aroma is clean and fresh and the tea’s color is light brown; almost the color of honey. I take sips after sips of this tea savoring the tingling sensation on my palette and upon swallowing of the tea there is that slight after taste that lingers reminding me that this is how green tea is meant to taste.
Overall tasting notes: crisp and clean with slight tingling on the palette.
Cup’s characteristic: fresh and mildly astringent
Liquor color: light brown (honey colored)
Taste: mild to very astringent if steep for longer
This is my every day black tea. It takes lots of milk and some sugar well. It’s strong, and while I like that, I steep it for a very short amount of time. It is strong, but smooth. Great in the morning to wake me up! Good with the occasional dash of cinnamon!
Waybacklogging here… I had a tin of this last fall/winter. This stuff is pretty good, especially for the price. It doesn’t taste at all like pumpkin, but it is a nice spiced rooibos. The rooibos itself is on the gentler side, without that awful pipe tobacco flavor it sometimes has.
Really enjoy this tea despite the fact that its bagged. Noticed it tasted almost exactly like stash premium’s pumpkin spice tea. However, I like this one a little bit more & find it has a fuller taste.
Whats good about this is the vanilla, I’ve realized. Cinnamon in tea can be overwhelming, but the addition of vanilla is a mellowing agent to that. I like this. I might get it again when it rolls around, but for now its a Sipdown!
