Before I drank “real” tea, my hot beverages of choice were brewed from a few varieties of herbal unsweetened teabags from Yogi tea. Lemon Ginger was among my top three favorites.
After sipping a Rishi tea with a similar flavor profile (Ginger Lime Rooibos), I revisited Yogi Lemon Ginger.
This was a wonderfully flavorful tea, far more punchy than the Rishi. It’s bright, spicy, and naturally sweet, since this blend also includes licorice root (and evidently a larger amount and/or more potent source). The peppermint leaf and black pepper, both near the bottom of the ingredient list, are barely there — I doubt I would have been able to place them without having read the label.
There are plenty of teas that captivate me now, but I’ll hang on to these old teabags, especially for those times when I’m sniffling or away from home.
I’m still battling the tail-end of a cold, so decided to give this tisane a try at work today. Based on the name, I was expecting a straight ginger tea. But to my surprise, I’m also picking up on some lemony notes and a peppery kick at the end of the sip, followed by a licorice-sweet aftertaste. On an ordinary day, I think I’d find this mish-mash of strong flavors way too overpowering, but on a sick day, I’m actually finding the strong flavor rather enjoyable. It’s also proving quite soothing to my throat. I may need to add this one to my list of teas to keep on hand for illness!
Flavors: Black Pepper, Ginger, Lemon, Licorice, Spicy, Sweet
I just went through my tea collection to figure out what to put in the Herbal and the Holidays TTBs when they get to me and I found a lone tea bag of this that Yogi sent me a little while back.
I’m actually not sure how I feel about this, there’s a lot of different flavors and I can’t pick them out well (though it doesn’t help that I’ve never had a dandelion tea before!) I can definitely taste some spices, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg(?) – it tastes like spice bread in a really strange way. There’s some cocoa notes, this might be okay with some cream too. I’m not totally opposed to this (surprisingly!), probably wouldn’t pick up a whole box, but if a tea bag or two came my way, I’d probably drink it.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Nutmeg, Pepper, Spices
On the 18th day of sipdowns..
Okay. I got this today from a promotion Yogi was doing so they sent me two teabags, this and their Spiced Dandelion Detox so it only really half counts as a sipdown because I only had one teabag as it is.
I didn’t actually read the package so it was a surprise when I pulled out the teabag and it was a black tea (I expected an Herbal) but it could work.
My first impression was…soapy. I can’t taste much of the raspberry flavor but there is a bite of ginger towards the end of the sip. It could possibly be flavored with raspberry leaf, which I can’t identify as well. I taste a little bit of peppermint and overall it tastes like herbs – something I’ve come to expect from Yogi and part of why I tend to steer clear.
Overall, I won’t be buying this, but if I’m not feeling well and need a pick me up tea, this could fit the bill.
I just read the ingredients and was interested to see that theres pu’erh in this tea. I didn’t taste it and don’t usually care for pu’erh so this gives me hope that maybe sometime I’ll find a pu’erh I like :P
Flavors: Ginger, Herbaceous, Medicinal, Peppermint, Soap
Aroma: peppermint, licorice, lemoongrass not noticeable.

I’ve been looking for a good bagged rooibos chai, so I ordered five different kinds from Amazon. This is probably my least favorite. I really don’t like cardamon, which is the second ingredient after rooibos, and it has stevia, which often bothers my stomach and tastes unpleasant to me. Even with milk, the cardamon flavor dominated. This may be just what someone else is looking for, but it’s really not for me.
Flavors: Cardamon, Spices, Sweet
I used two bags with 14 oz water. Directions recommend a steep time of 5-10 mintes. Delicious, soothing blend. Sweet with notes of cocoa and vanilla. Also detectable are the sarsparilla, cloves, and cinnamon
Flavors: Cloves, Cocoa, Sarsaparilla, Sweet, Vanilla
I don’t know how helpful this necessarily is for the immune system, but it’s a decent tasting tea, and perhaps it helps some. A lightly sweet green tea/herbal blend with layered flavor. Contains elderberry, which has been shown to support respiratory health.
Flavors: Green, Herbs, Lemongrass, Spearmint
