Happy Friday all! We have an upcoming Snow Apocalypse us. I’m kind of excited about being snowed in with just me, the boyfriend, Netflix, and of course my tea! Excited to have a sip-down kind of weekend and see what all I’ve currently got. So while I sit here at work dreaming of the fun that is to be had, I decided to grab this beauty to get my day off and going.
This is a delish treat that I adore. This green tea is sweet without needing anything extra to it. It has that almost melon flavor to it and the green tea just mingles so well that you can hardly tell it is a green tea. Plus, this one is great for your digestion and all the other health benefits that Kombucha provides. Recommend this one for an easy cup anytime!
Flavors: Green, Melon, Sweet
Somehow this made it into my bag of tea that I took with to Regina, and then home with me. I don’t really know how; I certainly didn’t grab a bag of it from my Mom’s cupboard. Best I can reason is that, since it’s one we were looking at/considering making tea pop with, someone – in an effort to “tidy”, tossed the bag we were looking at for ingredients into my stuff?
Anyway; I drank it – because that’s what you do, right? I wasn’t impressed with it at all though; it reminded me of a crappy, bagged tea version of DT’s Bravissimo, sorta. Mostly it tasted like weak, watery licorice root? And maybe some spices like cardamom. But very unimpressive and flavourful overall.
Free sample from the company. I’m usually not too fond of Yogi teas – too many ingredients. This one has a fairly reasonable quantity of ingredients and I like that they’re organic. What I really like is that the cocoa shells dominate everything else in both scent and flavor. There’s also hints of roastiness, pepper, and cinnamon. Buuut mostly it’s cocoa. Yummy yummy cocoa. This reminds me a lot of Herbal Infusions’ Cacao Tea, though I think I slightly prefer that one.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cocoa, Pepper, Roasted
This tea is like a chameleon. Some sips it’s a mildly spicy Mexican cacao, others it’s a mildly spicy ginger with a smooth fennel/anise, yet other times I get the coolness of mint, and it always ends with the sweet smooth fennel/anise. Chili? Not to me, not at all, but I can see how this might be “spicy” for some.
Flavors: Anise, Cacao, Ginger, Mint, Spicy, Sweet
Well, this didn’t suck.
I know that’s not the nicest way to start a review but….I really expected it to suck, so it’s a better start than it sounds like. It was nearly too sweet, though, since I almost never sweeten my tea. I hadn’t realized that licorice could be so sweet! The rest of it is something that could grow on me, especially if it left me feeling better. We’ll see.
Flavors: Licorice, Sweet
I bought this tea on a whim at my local whole foods. I have asthma and I figured, “hey, why not?”
This goes in the ‘not’ pile.
The scent of thyme is strong in this tea. I don’t particularly care for thyme in my teas, nor in my cooking. The second time I steeped this tea, I forgot about it for a minute too long. The licorice root became angry and it’s flavor was very syrupy-sweet at the tail notes. The eucalyptus was also a bit much. I did get some of the ginger as well as some indiscernible herbal flavors. Maybe the elecampane?
Another note: I don’t think it did anything for my lungs anyway.
I don’t want to give up on blends for respitory health, but I may just give up on this one.
Flavors: Ginger, Herbaceous, Licorice, Thyme
I have to agree with other reviewers: there’s not much hazelnut or vanilla flavor in this tea. It’s much more of a cinnamon/herbal flavor, with little nut/vanilla taste to go around. As a spiced herbal tea, it’s decent. But it fails to convey the two flavors that it lists on its box.
My first review in the new house :) I have a lot to do so this teabag comes in handy for a quick sip down. The bag smelled rather dry and spicy with prominent clove and pepper tones.
It says to leave in boiling water for 5-10 minutes so while I wait I will read the little quote on the teabags tag. ‘Have wisdom in your actions and faith in your merits’. Also gives me time to quickly check the Cyber Monday deals on a few cross stitch websites. Already bought myself a Marilyn Monroe kit and teapot kit.
Once cooled slightly (enough to sip) the flavour is very thick and herbal with a linger spice aftertaste. It tastes almost chemical, there is something in it that is unpleasant, it could be the licorice root as I am not a fan of it at all. Besides the licorice root I can also taste: clove, pepper and cinnamon. They blend together and the licorice taste takes over, very thick and refreshing though plastic like.
Unfortunately it is not pleasant to drink BUT I have a wave of tiredness come over me. My eyes are heavy and I’m yawning all of a sudden. It’s either the tea, my rush around this morning had latent effect or the result of listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (which is my favourite album). Or perhaps a combination of all three. So not a great tea but drinkable, though huge warning label if you don’t like licorice.
This mixture has very good energizing and digestive properties, and it is excellent for relieving stress fatigues and calming nerves during particularly strenuous periods . I like to enjoy this tea early in the morning to start a good day, or at night, especially after a particularly hard to digest dinner. I love this tea both hot and cold, and I usually do not use any sweetener to not change its particular flavor.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fennel, Ginger, Herbs, Licorice
This is an ok rooibos chai but not really a favorite. I’ve come to realize I like chais that contain both fennel and pepper because I like the spicy kick that comes with that. this chai is on the sweeter side, with cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and clove. It also contains stevia, which is a bit on the strong side for me. When I sweeten with stevia, I use a bottle dropper and one or two drops because it just gets so overwhelming if you use too much. After I drink this I get the “too much” kind of taste in my mouth.
Anyway I am sure I will finish the box, but can’t tea makers just let you add your own stevia or sugar to tea after you’ve brewed it?
