This is actually pretty good. It has stevia in it, which I usually loathe, but it is barely there. The flavor is spicy, I can really taste the cinnamon, and not unpleasant. I bought it for the relaxation claims than the taste, to be honest, but the taste isn’t too bad. I wouldn’t repurchase for taste, but I did like how effective the relaxing effect was. With all the warnings about kava, I don’t intend on consuming this more than a couple times a week, but I am glad to know it works.

I wasn’t particularly enthralled by the first cup. But when I steeped my teabag for a second cup, I began to feel a tingling in my throat and tongue. Previously, I had only felt this with a tea that contained hazelnuts (a known allergen), but I looked at the ingredients on this one and this doesn’t seem to contain hazelnut. But it was the exact same feeling—not a good tingling, a “stop drinking right now” tingling. So now I have to figure out what exactly is causing this reaction in me.

Anyway, be cautious drinking this tea if you’ve experienced similar reactions to some teas in the past. This one might trigger it for you too.

blueberry, yes…..but i could swear there’s orange in here!

like something of a candied orange flavor, once you get past the idea that what you’re drinking is ‘blueberry’.

I recently had an epiphany about filter bags. Their true destiny, I now see, is to be used for cold brew! I gave away a slew of filter bags when I moved this past spring, but I still seem to have hundreds lingering around, so I’m going to try to use them up this summer for pitchers of iced tea.

Today’s sip-down of sorts was a liter of Yogi Green Tea Super Antioxidant, prepared last night right before bedtime. It makes a decent pre-sweetened iced green tea. I usually do not add sugar to tea, but the licorice root gently sweetens this brew. I drank the entire pitcher in lieu of my usual big tetsubin of mid-day green. It is simply too hot for anything but iced today.

I use my tea bags for cold brew also. However, it does seem that they multiply inside the cupboard. Maybe they shouldn’t be left alone in the dark without adult supervision. :D

That is so true, carol who! It’s like the opposite of what happens to socks in the dryer! lol

I like this tea a lot! It’s very flavorful, and if you put the tea bag in carbonated water after you’re done with it, it makes some pretty good ginger ale!

It is officially my birthday! This is the least excited I have ever been about it, I have been 20 for 20 minutes, and I am already missing being a teenager ): life seems so much bigger and scarier at 20. Oh well, in reality I’m only a day older. At least I get to have birthday tea!

I got this tea as a single serving from my first ever swap with Hapatite, and it’s probably its time. I drank this to get a sipdown, and because I wanted a relaxing herbal as it’s pretty late. I was a little wary about it, as the main focus is ginger and it is one of my most hated flavours. Reading through the ingredients, though, I was a bit more hopeful as there are a lot of other ingredients in it too, which I was hoping would dampen the ginger down a little. The bag smelled mainly of peppermint, which made me even more hopeful. The sachet it came in actually smells of that vapor rub stuff you use to clear your nose when you have a cold, which is not really something I want to be drinking…

Brewing, the ginger takes over, followed by the licorice root and a bit of mint coming through after that. I expected the taste to be pretty similar, but it’s actually not, which is kinda confusing as you’re drinking it. The ginger is definitely less prominent than expected, which is great for me but would probably disappoint a ginger fan who chose it for this reason. I found the predominant flavour was the pepper, which surprised me as it was the last on the ingredients list and I assumed it would be more of a ‘hint’. The ginger adds a nice heat to it, without being so strong a flavour that I can’t enjoy the cup. There is a little liquorice aftertaste and sweetness, and the peppermint rounds the whole thing out pretty nicely. On a whole, I’m glad to have tried it, but it’s not one of my favourites.

Sipdown! (1/144)

Happy birthday! I like drinking this tea when I have an upset stomach, not as much for the taste. Hope you like being 20, I’m almost done with the 20s!

Nattie

Thank you thank you for all the birthday wishes everyone, they were so lovely to read, especially as I wasn’t particularly looking forward to this birthday. Thanks for the advice, too, MissLena and Veronica! Made me feel so much better.

Nattie

Hapatite, I can imagine it would definitely help an upset stomach, fortunately I don’t get sick too often (:

I found several bags of Yogi Green Tea Super Antioxidant tea and after yesterday’s felicitous experience with Tazo Thrive, I decided to try the Yogi iced as well. I brewed this tea hot and reviewed it fairly extensively at my perfume blog (salon de parfum) a while back:

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

Today’s batch of iced tea I prepared using the cold brew method, with 6 filter bags in 1 liter water stowed in the refrigerator overnight—many hours. How did it turn out?

The liquor is golden and the flavor is quite strong. It seems that the cold temperature is really augmenting the licorice so that it now is more marked than the jasmine. I was debating whether to use more than 6 bags, but now I recognize that this was perfectly sufficient. The iced tea tastes so sweet that I can definitely recommend these bags prepared via the cold brew method to anyone who prefers sweet tea but is wary of all of the sugar. No sugar here: just lots of licorice sweetness on a refreshing green tea and herbal base!

Backlog. Got this sample from my MIL.

This was very strong ginger tea. To be fair I brewed it really strong (10 min) but it was too spicy for me. And I think it could use some different flavors added in. I am not a plain ginger fan. If you like plain ginger then this would be a great tea for you!

drank Throat Comfort by Yogi Tea
2307 tasting notes

Took a walk down to the farmer’s market today, maybe getting loaded up on fruits and vegetables will be good for my immune system??

Anyway I decided I was going to pick this up on the way home and drink some today. Here’s the ingredients list:
Licorice Root
Fennel Seed
Wild Cherry Bark
Cinnamon Bark
Orange Peel
Slippery Elm Bark
Cardamom Seed
Ginger Root
Mullein Leaf
Clove Bud
Black Pepper

This is like a cornucopia of spices, but not exactly pleasant tasting. It seems like a spicy licorice soup if you ask me. Aside from the licorice there’s also black pepper and ginger that seem really strong. It’s a bit like a chai but not nearly as palatable. I would not recommend this solely on the basis of the flavor, but it is a medicinal tea after all. Hopefully it will do the trick and help dispel my germs. I used two teabags for a large mug of tea.

My goodness, if that list of ingredients doesn’t make you feel better, I don’t know what will!
Feel better :-)

If it wasn’t for that nasty licorice :) Unfortunately, I think that’s the key throat-soothing ingredient.

TeaBrat

I don’t hate licorice as much as other people seem to. It does always overwhelm everything else in a tea though.

Amariel

I hate everything licorice-like, so that includes fennel and anise as well. Some types of cinnamon too.

Amariel

But yeah, it’s a key factor in the sore throat stuff.

I hate this tea.
I don’t know if I’ve ever had a tea this terrible before. I cannot even bring myself to take more than a few sips. It just tastes weird. Sweet, kind of bitter, and has this sharp odd flavor I can’t pinpoint. I don’t know what to do with the rest of this box, but the trashcan is looking a bit inviting.

Tamm

I’m just sad because I was so excited to try this! I’ve only had one other Yogi tea that I didn’t really care for. But it sure wasn’t unpalatable!

Made a big pitcher of this iced the other day, because I’m feeling like I need a detox. I wont be making that mistake again, cold, I tasted a licorice after taste that I didn’t notice before. Confused, because I don’t remember tasting that before. And sure enough, licorice root is one of the last ingredients. I don’t know if it’s because I cold steeped it overnight which gave the licorice root more time to infuse, or if its just more prominent cold. Either way, I drowned my cup real fast, and dumped the rest. I won’t be doing it like that again. I only have 3 bags left, which I’ll eventually drink because hot it just tastes cinnamon and spicy. But I won’t repurchase

Loved the floral taste of this tea. It reminded me of oolong, but I haven’t had much oolong so thats not a reliable comparison. Unfortunately, I won’t be buying this since it’s only in teabag form, which isn’t cost effective for me. If anyone knows of a loose leaf herbal with a similar taste, please let me know!

I came across this lone bag of Egyptian Licorice while cleaning out my purse, & so of course I had to include it in the sipdown extravaganza!
I’ve loved this tea for a long time, & will probably restock at some point, because as far as an evening tea is concerned, this is among my most favorites, oozing with licorice, ginger, & a variety of other spices.

This tea has a nice cinnamon, spiciness to it. I didn’t taste any peach. I was pleasantly surprised, I didnt think I would like this too much, I figured it would taste really medicinal. I’m really glad it doesn’t, because I plan on drinking a cup a day for the next 2 weeks. I might try it with a dash of milk tomorrow.

drank Aztec Sweet Chili by Yogi Tea

From the HHTTB2

I actually had this tea last night. They have apparently changed the name from Mexican to Aztec Sweet Chili. My tea bag had the Mexican Sweet Chili label.

This herbal is odd. So very odd. The smell is strongly of licorice and fennel. The initial sip is watery followed by a lot of sweetness from the licorice with the spices – cinnamon, clove, and cardamom – kind of blending in. Right behind the sweetness is a savory punch from the fennel and anise, and then there is the heat from the ginger, pepper, and cayenne. This is all in one sip. The heat builds in the back of the throat with each sip which I liked, and the licorice coated my throat pretty well which made me think this might be good to keep on hand for sick days. It’s a crazy mix of flavors though, and nothing really blends. And I couldn’t get past thinking this is a strange tea.

Not a tea I would purchase, but it was fun to try. I will admit I was laughing while I drank it because it is so not in my wheelhouse.

What is HHTTB2? Sorry if that’s a stupid question. ;-)

It’s the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box #2. I’m just to lazy to write that each time. :)

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.

drank Green Tea Kombucha by Yogi Tea

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.
