drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
244 tasting notes

I drank too much coffee (fell off the wagon again) so I made a cup of this to force myself to chill. It was delicious as always. I brewed it at a cooler temp, so the kava was very strong. My tongue tingled, and I felt verrrrrry relaxed.

Good stuff. The carob and hazelnut together are divine.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon

drank Green Tea Kombucha by Yogi Tea
244 tasting notes

Sipdown! I made a pot of this to use up the last three teabags, and I’m planning to drink it cold. That’s how you’re supposed to drink kombucha anyway, isn’t it?

I won’t be restocking this one. I mean, yeah, it tastes good, and it’s a nice cheery cup of fruity and minty happiness, but since purchasing these teabags, I’ve discovered that I prefer real kombucha instead. If I want kombucha, I want the full, vinegary, effervescent experience, not this heavily-disguised green and herbal blend.

Don’t get me wrong- this tea tastes REALLY good. But it isn’t what I need when it’s kombucha I want.

So I really need this tea tonight to relax. I’m listening to Yoga music, too tired to actually do Yoga tonight. Need to unwind, I had an incredibly exciting day today, and not much sleep last night. Last night I read until the wee hours of the morning.

I prefer the caramel Yogi Bedtime tea to the regular, it tastes better.

I just want to relax and fall to sleep.

Homework lost the battle tonight, due to stress. I’m gonna unwind with a cup of this stuff (I’m hoping it will counterbalance the near pound of cake frosting that I ate straight from the jar today… Oops) and just revisit the assignment tomorrow.

It’s sweet, it’s gentle, it’s warming… Just what I need.

drank Ginger by Yogi Tea

I reach for this tea when I’m feeling under the weather but not up for a pu-erh. Or rather, am lazy and only want to deal with tea bags.

This is very aggressively spiced, which I like. The spice is warming and bounces between ginger, pepper, and licorice. It finishes with a little sweetness and I find that the bottom of the cup is more sweet (and less enjoyable) that the beginning.

drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
244 tasting notes

Decided to try this one again. I think as long as I only drink it once in a great while, it’s no worse than having a few beers. (Which again, I only do once in a great while.)

I really love the flavor. The hazelnut and carob are wonderful together. I adore hazelnut coffee, so it makes perfect sense that I enjoy this one. It’s like having dessert, without the calories and sugar.

Except that this drink does exactly the opposite of what hazelnut coffee does! I definitely feel drowsy, and my tongue tingled a little while I was drinking it, although I’ve been assured that that is normal while drinking kava. I’m definitely only going to drink this one before bed or when I know I don’t need to drive or be anywhere after.

This is easily the best-tasting tea from Yogi that I’ve ever tried. I’m glad I decided to give it another chance.

drank Calming by Yogi Tea

This stuff really doesn’t taste great… It smells like wet clay. And it tastes bitter and medicinal.

I’m only drinking it because I’ve heard good things about gotu kola. We’ll see if it “eases my mild tension,” like it promises to.

I went to the store looking specifically for a sleep blend. I picked a few up but chose this one as I love caramel. Unfortunately, I do not taste any caramel. But it does have a nice spicy yet sweet flavor and after one sip I felt relaxed. Time will tell if it helps my slumber.

200th tasting note! Wow.

A mug of this stuff, steeped at exactly 170 degrees F for three to four minutes, and stuffing copious amounts of processed junk food into my mouth is how I’m choosing to deal with that excruciating phone interview I just had.

Being a college senior looking for a job sucks. Especially if you happen to be painfully shy and not good at interviewing. Stammered, repeated myself, and rambled.

Ughhhhhh.

Well, this blend is good, as always. Yogi herbal blends are hit or miss, but their green tea blends are always right on. Yay for minty, fruity, sweetness!

Oh gosh, I’m sorry you’re so anxious about this. Looks like pretty much my entire dash (myself included) is experiencing job-related stress. I just hate it so much. I hope things look up soon for all of us.

teaqueen

Me too… Peace, love, and tons of tea. I’ll send happy thoughts your way :)

And back at you!

drank DeTox by Yogi Tea

Funny thing about Yogi- they’ll make a tantalizingly delicious blend full of herbs that are horrendously bad for you (looking at YOU, Kava Stress Relief!) And then make a terrible-tasting blend full of herbs that are good for you.

Like this one. Which I am only drinking because of this afternoon’s kava scare.

Here’s to a happy liver and unhappy taste buds tonight. Bottoms up.

I reviewed this tea from Yogi a while back at my perfume blog. Here’s the link:

http://salondeparfum-sherapop.blogspot.com/2013/12/quick-sip-and-sniff-yogi-green-tea.html

Today I brewed up a cup thinking that I’d do a steep-off with Touch Organic Green. That proved to be an ill-conceived scheme since they are completely different kinds of tea! Oh well. The Yogi is heavily scented and packed with non-tea additives, all intended to augment the anti-oxidant and other salubrious benefits of drinking green tea. I find the jasmine scent a bit heavy, but jasmine tea lovers might enjoy this cup.

drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
244 tasting notes

This stuff is delicious… Chocolate and spice and everything nice.

Except that apparently kava kava root can wreak complete and utter havoc on your liver.

I sure wish I’d read the label BEFORE I bought the whole box. I got a few sips into my first cup before I read someone’s review on this tea about how risky it is for your health, and had to dump the rest out. No clue what I’m going to do with the rest of the box.

Stress relief, my foot. Stress-INDUCING, more like. I’m surprised Yogi would even use an herb that has been banned in some countries because of the health risks associated with it.

drank Ginger by Yogi Tea
125 tasting notes

I’m having a little of this to try to get rid of a lingering cough. I know ginger is usually for stummys (and I have had a little of that too), but I thought the spice might help with my congestion.

This is sweeter than I remember, did they change the formula? Picking up much more licorice root than before, which might also be good for my throat.

Overall, I still enjoy it!

When I’m looking for some immune support, I can slurp this stuff down like crazy. I probably wouldn’t seek it out for the taste alone, although it’s pleasant enough.

The smell makes it hard to drink, and there is too many flavors going on to taste anything!

drank Egyptian Licorice by Yogi Tea
244 tasting notes

The idea of a licorice tea has been buzzing around in my head for a while now, and I’ve been hesitant to try it because I despise licorice. But today I finally decided to try it. I think my sore throat, coupled with the fact that I’ve been reading up about how ridiculously beneficial to your health it is, pushed me to do it.

The dry bag smells like roots and earth- very similar to Yogi’s Detox blend, which contains dandelion root. No dandelion here, but I’m starting to think that maybe there’s a “rooty” smell.

Sipping… Actually, not bad. It tastes like the dandelion root too. The cinnamon and orange peel make it very sweet. It gives off a pleasant, warm aroma.

I think I can tolerate this for the sake of my health.

drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
397 tasting notes

First time in forever spending the night with my cousins on a weekday, only becausE WE’RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND TOMORROW.

I didn’t bother bringing any teas with me to their house tonight or to last me during Disney all day tomorrow, so I’m left with my aunt’s very limited tea selection.

I am so out of practice with teabags okay. I remember the last time I had a teabag, I had no idea what to do. 5 minutes in boiling water seemed like a lot! Same with this tea. There’s a fairly strong aroma that comes out when I ripped the package open and I’m thinking a two second infusion would be sufficient. I’VE ONLY HAD LIKE 4 TEABAGS IN MY ENTIRE LIFE OKAY.

Umm this tea is okay? I’ve never had a full-leaf tea that tastes quite like this though. A good tea to drink if I have no other choice ahaha

(I’m sorry. I just really don’t like teabags okay. My roommates and close friends always make fun of me because I’m the sassiest tea drinker they know)

Backlog:

Wow … so a quick perusal of the tasting notes on this tea, and the reviews aren’t very positive. As for me … I actually liked it. I like chicory and chocolate together. The spices are warm and pleasant.

I do wish that it didn’t contain stevia. That’s a common complaint for me when I try teas with stevia in them … I wish that companies didn’t do this. I want to be able to choose to sweeten my tea or not to sweeten it … and I want to choose the type of sweetener I add if I do choose to sweeten it. I don’t usually sweeten my teas, but, if it’s a spiced blend like this I do like to add sweetener because I feel that sugar and spice belong together and it creates a harmonious taste. But, I don’t want stevia anywhere near it.

Anyway … I didn’t hate this. I would rather it be loose. I’d rather it not have stevia. But I still enjoyed it.

For a little while now there has been a box of tea sitting in our cupboard that I have been somewhat timid of trying. As it stared me down when I opened the cabinet doors this morning I decided it was time I tried it out. It is spicy and sweet! Such a weird sensation. I don’t mind the flavor but it isn’t something I could drink everyday. It has the same color as apple juice which really throws me off.

Update: Even though I don’t live with my parents anymore now I still find a box of this in their cupboard when I go home.

drank Raspberry Ginger by Yogi Tea
512 tasting notes

This entry in the Yogi Ginger infusion series, Raspberry Ginger, is rather heavy on the hibiscus. In fact, the raspberry flavor is pretty much overwhelmed by the tart hibiscus. Ascorbic acid is also listed among the ingredients, which no doubt enhances the lip-puckering effect.

As a ginger brew, is this is a bit less appealing to me than Yogi Lemon Ginger. The ginger is there, augmented again by the black pepper (a favorite ingredient chez Yogi!), but I would say that the overall effect is at least as close to Raspberry Zinger as it is to Raspberry Ginger!
