I like this one, but again with a little bit of bias because of the blackberry leaf and the lotus flavor. It’s really fruity, and very refreshing after a workout. As for the recovery angle of this tea, it’s specifically talking about recovering IMMEDIATELY after training, and after breathing your lungs out and beating the crap out of your body. It only helps to build muscle by lowering inflammation and giving you a wake up jolt after wards. My muscles weren’t so sore after I drank it, but it’s no magic medicine or supplement like creatine (which you can argue whether or not such supplements are good for you).It’s honestly better with honey, but not bad at on its own. The turmeric really brings out the flavors, and is the source of its body. Really, the quality and the ingredients with their health benefits are the reason for my higher rating. I’d recommend it, but not highly and NEVER to a connoisseur. Someone who likes to try something new smooth and fruity would like this one.
Flavors: Blackberry, Ginger, Green
Wow, this is MINTY! Mint is really all I smell when I open the bag, and I’m honestly glad. I saw licorice on the package and was worried because it seems like all of the Yogi teas I’ve tried have either licorice or sarsaparilla. I’m really not a fan of either of those. The taste of this tea has the cooling effect of mint but not really the flavor. It’s more of an herbaceous flavor and definitely artificial tasting like it has an artificial sweetener in it or something. It is also a little bitter, but I did steep it a little longer than recommended. Honestly, it’s like chewing on a backyard weed. Whether or not it helps with memory, I don’t know, but I know I won’t be drinking more of it to find out.
Flavors: Artificial, Bitter, Herbaceous, Mint
I dunno how I got this tea. Figure I give it a shot as I have a bag of it and I’ve gone 2 days with like 4 hours of sleep. Taste? BLEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Tastes watery with a pinch of random herbalness, ramping up to a licorice and over stevia sweet nightmare. So much stevia! The weird sweetness stays for a few minutes, leaving a funky herbal flavor after that.
OMG why so much stevia? The aftertaste of this tea reminds me of that bland, unsatisfying minty, kinda sweet, gritty toothpaste the dentist uses to polish your teeth – including metallic dental tool flavor – but hella sweeter!
This is not an actual tasting note, as I haven’t been able to brew a cup and don’t intend to.
I was given a box of this tea, or it wouldn’t be in my house. I don’t know why Yogi seems to think licorice goes with everything, but just the scent of the stuff makes me gag. Perhaps I’m super-sensitive, but I’m getting a nauseating licorice whiff from the sealed box. I note that licorice is the second item on the “Proprietary Blend of Herbs,” right under peppermint. Frankly, there is not enough peppermint on the planet to negate the nasty yuck factor of licorice.
If you hate licorice, avoid this tea like the plague. If you love licorice, you’ll probably be delighted. Me, I’m planning to foist this box off on the first of my friends that expresses an interest.
Good and soothing. Strong taste of chamomile, valerian, mint, and lavender. Maybe some cinnamon or light ginger? Light, floral kind of taste with a satisfying bite.

This is my first tea review here. I had hoped to develop my tea palette a bit more before chiming in, as I’m still new and experimenting. But I thought I’d write this as a warning.
This tea has a late taste of what I can only describe as moldy hay. It’s fine on initial contact, but has an extremely powerful “something” that I found to be pretty darn objectionable.
I only tried this tea as a relaxation aid, as I’m having a bit of difficulty passing a tactile test and seem pretty nervous on my previous attempts. I’m just one opinion, but I certainly would not want to go to bed with this taste in my mouth.
The only redeeming quality was that it “worked,” in that it gave a pretty deep REM sleep.
Flavors: Corn Husk, Licorice, Plant Stems, Wood
This was…ok. The aroma was great. I got mint, Chamomile and various herbs and everything worked together nicely. I tasted it and it was surprisingly sweet, as others have mentioned. I got the mint again, some earth and the herbs. But as I swallowed, I got a cooling feeling that was kinda weird. I have since finished my cup and my stomach is now upset. Not really digging this tea anymore. Hopefully it at least does what it said it will and enables me to get a nice night’s rest. I’ll keep you posted.
I don’t get why this tea gets so much hate. I personally like it. While it is room temperature, it can taste very bitter and the mint doesn’t make it any better, but otherwise I like the taste while it is freshly warm. I find it to have a very relaxing and calm aroma and very “natural” sort of taste although the honey-ish flavor at times can be overpowering.
I played a gig tonight with my trio, 2 hours of Beatles music on flute, harp, & cello. Then I came home & spent the last couple of hours with my son Drew, watching the 3 episodes of Dr Who that I hadn’t seen yet, plus all the previews of the upcoming special. A perfect ending to a perfect day :)
Oh, and Sipdown!
