A little harsh because of the cinnamon oil for me. This tea bag also contains stevia leaf which I found gave it an artificial sweetener taste. There are other herbs including chicory root, cardamom seed, ginger root, clove bud, and black pepper. It does contain cocoa powder but it’s not a main ingredient and doesn’t come thru in the tea. Definitely drink this alone because it will overpower a cookie with it’s cinnamon oil.
I dont like the taste, lots of spices and licorice but it does work. I keep on buying it because i do get really bad gramps and for me it helps. And ill try anything to get rid of pain.
Hubby had already raided the tea bags josiejade sent us and decided to try Tazo’s Passion tea. Not my speed, especially not hot, so I went for something different.
After looking at a couple of reviews here, I decided on this because many describe it as spicy and sweet… much like my favorite teabag from Good Earth teas (Original Sweet & Spicy). This was my first experience, to my knowledge, with licorice in tea. I have been one of few in my family to actually enjoy a black jellybean now and then, so the name didn’t scare me. I have to admit when I opened the bag I was a bit underwhelmed by the fragrance. It was earthy w/no spice. Upon steeping, I felt the same way. I expected a bit of a sweet scent with either licorice or cinnamon coming through.
First sip, mild flavor, not spicy… not like I had hoped or the name suggested. Hard to pick out any distinct flavors even after a few sips. Then I began to notice after I swallowed, a mild bit of spice in my mouth and the sweetness. The sweetness would linger for quite a long time. As it cooled, the flavors didn’t intensify or become distinct, but the sweetness did.
Not really sure how I rate this one yet, but glad to have tried it for the experience of the sweet aftertaste. Luckily there is one more teabag in the box so I can try it again. :)
This tea is interesting. Not something I’d go out of my way for, but if given wouldn’t refuse. I can’t place the smell. I know I’ve smelled it before, but it was probably so long ago the memory is fixed in with all of the other seldom smelled things. I’ll just say it’s alfalfa and move om.
You can taste the lemongrass the most. That’s probably for the best seeings as my last Green Tea tasted pretty unremarkable. I received a sample a while back and the only thing back I can say about the Yogi brand is they try a bit too hard with their health branding.
I want to say I’ll revisits this tea, but probably won’t.
As you might recall, yesterday I took a walk in the frigid air to the store (for milk and hair dye, life’s necessities) and I believe I picked up a new friend when I was out. Yes, there is a squatter in my lungs, a friendly little cold or some sort of irritant, meaning this is a perfect opportunity to test an herbal tea while taking a break from my spriting. The Perler inspiration bug has bitten very hard.
Today we are looking at Breathe Deep by Yogi Teas is a blend of herbs to support respiratory health and includes Licorice Root, Eucalyptus, Basil Leaf, Ginger Root, Cardamon Seed, Cinnamon Bark, Thyme Leaf, Elecampane Root, Peppermint Leaf, Mullien Leaf, and Natural and Organic Flavors. Opening the wrapper you get a nice slam in the face of eucalyptus, hello cooling fumes for my lungs! Mixing that aroma with mint and licorice it makes for a sweet blend with a very strong cooling effect for my sinuses and lungs, it is very refreshing. If you are not a fan of the aroma of eucalyptus and mint, walk away now because it is crazy strong!
Steeping the tea has turned my bedroom into a lung soothing sauna, or a jar of Vapor Rub. The aroma is mostly mint and eucalyptus but there is also an undertone of green, herbal aroma with a hint of savory herbs. It is certainly a good aroma for breathing in when you are unwell.
Holy Mary Mother of Mudkips that is intensely sweet. I was not expecting that level of sweetness, it is the strange sweetness of licorice root that gives it an almost artificial taste, if you have ever chewed on licorice root you will immediately recognize that flavor. For once I actually wish a tea was less sweet, I really must be unwell…or it really is just that sweet. The mouthfeel is refreshing and cooling with a delightful tingling as it goes down. There is a medicinal aftertaste that is not very pleasant. I can certainly breathe easier, so it does its job, but the taste is not exactly pleasant. I am not sure if I actually need to drink this tea in the future, I think that breathing in the steam from the tea did most the easing of my lungs.
Random Teabag Sipdown
There are a lot of flavors going on with this tea, which is pretty typical of any yogi blend. It was a little odd tasting and tasted very strongly of licorice and chamomile. The other flavors surprisingly enough didn’t really stand out.
Dandelions! Who knew?
This one has a little more of a bite to it before it sinks into Yogi’s usual slightly sweet, aggressively herbal aftertaste. The spice can be easily accredited to the cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper.
I have no idea what Burdock, Long Pepper Berry, Phellodendron, Coptis Root, or Winter Melon are, or what they do, but I’ve been drinking this tea for a while, and I seem to be fine, so I’m going to assume that they’re at least harmless, if nothing else.
This is the best bedtime tea I’ve ever had, in terms of how well it works. I only use it when I’m really really super restless, like last night.
The tea just makes me feel a little more relaxed and open to clearing my mind. I drank it before I did some yoga, meditation, and prayer, and it definitely helped get my mind in the right place for those things.
Yogi teas all taste basically the same to me, so I’m not making a plug for its flavor. It tastes like a sweet, apple-y, herbal bouquet of so-so-ness. No caramel that I can detect, despite what the ingredient list claims. But it really does deliver on its promise of “supporting a good night’s sleep.”
Very typical Yogi blend. Sweet-tasting, thick mouthfeel, wheaty- aftertaste, verrrrry long list of ingredients, some of which have funky names, etc.
I was feeling a little panicky before I made it, and after I sipped on it for a bit, I felt better. Would I go so far as to give this tea all the credit? No. Did it maybe help take some of the edge of? Yes.
All in all, pretty good. I wouldn’t buy a box of this unless I had a coupon or it was on sale, though.
I got this tea in a sample pack. The tea smells nice, but it’s a tad weak. I might try this tea again to get a better feel for it.
My throat needed this.
idk why steepster is broken on my computer but will work on my phone. I haven’t been able to make regular posts in days. And posting from my phone is not fun and full of typos.
I drank this tea as still another agenda of drinking even the dreg teas of the house. At least once.
I do not like the flavor. And it surely didn’t relax me. Hah
Another “alien mystery bag” that supplied a pleasant surprise. Usually I avoid Yogi because of the ridiculously cloying licorice that shows up in most of their blends. No licorice in this one—and it does have a nice, light, fruit-juicy quality. Like Juicy Fruit fruit-juicy.
Just finished up with a 2.5 hour rehearsal with cello & flute, all Beatles music for a gig we’ll play this thursday night. Earlier today I practiced a few hours for a gig accompanying the choir at one of the colleges I teach at. That concert is on Monday evening. I’m definitely all played out for today. Now to try to get in an hour of writing, & then sleep….sweet sleep….
This is one of my favorite non-caffeine teas, perfect for the evening. I love licorice, I love all the chai-like spices. It’s a naturally sweet treat.
I did a lot of loud talking yesterday, so I definitely needed this for my throat. Definitely steeped it for just the right amount of time, as it comes across light with hint of sweetness, not cloying or waxy.
I really want to like this tea, because it smells wonderful, but I just can’t bring myself to enjoy it, no matter how I prepare it. Whether served plain or with milk and sugar, the flavors seem somewhat bland and boring to me. There is nothing that special about this tea, but there really isn’t anything too horrible about it either. This is one of those teas that you just have to try for yourself.
ah another tea from the back of our cupboard.
but you know what’s NOT boring…?
i hope you all voted today!! (when applicable)
Almost like a coffee.
Smells great and is very smooth, but I split the bag between cups and I think it’s a little weak.
