This does taste calming to me but only when I get enough of the stevia flavour in my sip. Otherwise, there’s a strange, slightly sour note that I’m not a fan of.
Not too many tasty herbal blends out there (that I’ve tried anyway, regardless of teabag or loose leaf) but I think the St John’s Wort blend by Yogi is a better alternative if you want something supposedly calming. That, and the Bedtime tea.
Will finish, but not repurchase
It’s been raining all week, and my energy has been totally zapped. So, I went looking for an afternoon pick-me-up. I wanted something that would be refreshing and relaxing at the same time. Found this stashed in my cupboard, and tried it again. It fit the bill for a Saturday afternoon.
Aroma is very heavy with anise and licorice, with some cinnamon, cloves and pepper notes.
The taste is obviously quite sweet, really peppery, with strong anise and cinnamon.
Can be really good with a splash of milk.
Flavors: Anise, Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Clove, Licorice, Pepper, Spicy, Sweet
Cardamom, cinnamon, licorice, black pepper and orange peel dominate the aroma.
The taste is distinctly sweet from licorice, with strong cinnamon, cardamom and orange peel notes, with a little ginger in the background.
Nice and warming.
Flavors: Black Pepper, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Licorice, Orange Zest
Okay this tea is a big mixture of everything. This has to be one of my least favorite teas, that i have ever tried. It did not give off a good smell to me and the taste was more burnt caramel, that was not soothing at all (to me). I;m not big on herbal teas, so this might just be a personal taste issue.
Yogi tea seems to blend ingredients that are more medicinal than taste-focused, which I’m a fan of.
I think being able to enjoy something good for you in a soothing and delicious way is powerful.
Thus, drinking copious amounts can affect your health, as previous reviews have mentioned. The way I see it, it’s like cough drops. You CAN eat cough drops when you’re not sick – but the medical ingredients in it might throw you off kilter a slight bit, if there’s already nothing wrong with you (or if you’re sensitive to it in a specific way). That being said, I don’t think anything bad would happen if you just drank one cup of this.
If you finished the whole box in 5 days, then you might feel some effects. But none life-threatening.
As for Kava, it tastes pretty strong. It’s like licorice+cinamonny. I did not expect this, and don’t prefer it. I bought it soley because I’m stressed a lot. Personally, drinking this straight up just makes my mouth feel all spiced up, not relaxed.
However there is a trick… it tastes pretty good with milk!
The milk softens and compliments the spice, and creates a creamier (though watered-down) version of it.
After adding milk, I enjoyed this tea several times until the box was almost finished.
Flavors: Anise, Biting, Cinnamon, Clove, Spicy
Okey first time i try this just tasted like pure dirt. But i haven’t learn my mistakes from my past and bought a whole BOX!……. So i tried it again this time it was bad but not as bad as the first time probably cause of the amount of sugar i put on it, which it kind of defeats the purpose of the detox LOL…… Ok 3 time i added milk and creamer and sugar its still taste like dirt but a parable dirt. I original got because i really enjoy peach flavor anything. Thinking a detox peach might not be bad the thing is theres no note of peach i can’t taste it or smell it. know i have a whole box minus 3 teas GREAT this one will sit on my cupboard for a while.
I’m smitten. This tea does it’s thing, and it does it well. I have been drinking for about 4 months now and I really believe it is a game changer (for my body at least!). I drink it sporadically for about a week before, and a bit during, and it helps astoundingly. Mood swings, better. Cramps, 100% better. General period time, so much better. I’m extremely satisfied with this tea.
As for taste, I truly believe Yogi has some quality control issues. Which may explain why some people so ardently hate the taste, and others enjoy it. I have purchased about 5 boxes now, and I can confidently say that some boxes taste actually heavenly, while others fall so flat. I’m not sure what is missing/added to make this flavor change happen, but I will drink it regardless of the flavor. The physical benefits out-way any momentary unappealing taste.
Very pale, but that’s not surprising, given the contents.
The aroma is very gingery, with only very subtle lemon notes.
The taste is spicy, really gingery, with slight liquorice sweetness. lemon is hiding in the background, barely noticeable.
Not bad, very refreshing and warming, but misleading, bcause the lemon component is too weak.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon, Licorice
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
I haven’t been logging as many teas lately because I feel like I’ve been drinking the same ones over and over. It’s my first time to try this particular tea though so here we go. This is the first Yogi tea I’ve seen that actually has tea in it. My husband had a cup and absolutely loved it so I’m trying it today with a little honey and cream. It’s bitter but I let it steep too long so I’m sure that’s on me. The honey helps to tame it. But it’s more like a bitter root than a bitter tea so it may just be one of the ingredients. The flavor is good, though there is not as much chai spice as I had hoped. The description says this tea energizes without the jittery side effects but I actually do feel a little jittery.
Yogi Thought of the Day: Live through consciousness, not through emotion.
Consciousness: the state of being awake and aware of one’s surroundings; the fact of awareness by the mind of itself and the world.
This Yogi quote is actually quite relevant at the moment. We’ve started doing yoga these past three weeks (our yoga “practice”) and our teacher has really been stressing being mindful of our bodies and staying connected and grounded. I’ve also been reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and thinking not only of what will make me happy but also of what will make me a better person. Yoga is one of these things. Taking care of my body through yoga, eating healthy (green smoothies!), and basic care is becoming more important to me as I get older. Also on my list, learning patience and finding kindness again. Reconnecting with my faith and my church. I think it’s just coincidence that this falls around the new year as I’ve been working toward these goals (one at a time) for the past few weeks. I want to be a good person, the wife my husband deserves, and a kind and supportive friend to those around me. I’m being mindful and making it happen. Words have weight and I am trying to focus on speaking them with awareness and not just mindlessly.
