GCTTB (roung 6) entry
Ick! I should have known better than to think this wouldn’t be sickly sweet, but some brilliant tea maker thought sickly sweet licorice root should also have stevia accompanying it. Absolutely disgusting, I don’t know how anyone can enjoy this, and that’s coming from someone who prefers the taste of artificial sugar/diet soda. This isn’t a sweet tea with sugar added sweet. This is full blown stevia in overdrive sweet. It dries my tongue out too.
The licorice root is nice and licorice-y, herbaceous, distinct taste of medicinal herbs and root. The mint is fresh and not vegetal.
Flavors: Anise, Herbs, Licorice, Medicinal, Metallic, Mint, Sweet, Taro Root
Bought this among a bunch of other tisanes the other day to drink when I don’t want caffeine and want a large mug of something to keep warm. Tried this the other day when I wasn’t feeling great and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. It didn’t taste the way I thought it would. I realized afterward that this has added natural flavoring, which may be why I feel meh about it. And one of those flavorings is hazelnut, and while I like hazelnuts, I am allergic to them so that may or may not be a bad thing. I clearly didn’t read the ingredients on this one before I bought it.
Sweet, fruity, hibiscus-y; would do well as an iced or hot tea (or room-temp tea). Very pleasant taste makes it one of my go-to teas when I can’t decide what to drink. Added benefit of containing herbs that are good for the skin, like burdock and dandelion.
Flavors: Berry, Hibiscus, Mint, Rose
The taste is fine, but nothing special — mostly like mint (and a little bitter). I wouldn’t drink it for the taste alone, but the ingredients are beneficial for aches and pains. I haven’t noticed a huge difference in pain level after drinking it, but it seems to be a little effective.
Flavors: Peppermint, Spearmint
A decent tea, full of proven detoxing ingredients. As for the taste, it has a very “chai”-like flavor profile. I don’t love the flavor itself (I don’t enjoy chai tastes, and it’s somewhat spicy), but it has that soothing/warm feeling that I look for in any good tea, so I would still drink it again. I also enjoy the health benefits.
This is my go-to tisane. I’m crazy about ginger, so I enjoy the gingery and peppery spice in this. The licorice adds the slightest hint of sweetness, and I find the lemongrass and peppermint to be understated. As I am moving back away from using bags at all, I will be trying to replicate this recipe on my own. It’s not a mind-blowing tisane by any means, but it’s a very familiar one and it really has the spice I seek, which leads me rate it higher than I probably otherwise would.
Flavors: Black Pepper, Ginger, Licorice, Spicy
I really dig this one. Normally I avoid Yogi teas that have weird herbs that I’ve never heard of (shankhpushpi and ashwagandha… wut?) because I’m very careful with any medications, FDA approved or otherwise. But the ingredients list on this one, those two aforementioned ayurvedic remedies aside, was too diverse and interesting to pass up. Black tea, mate, green tea, lemon myrtle, tulsi, and lemongrass, all in one blend? I sort of see the rationale— black tea provides just the energy, and mate and green tea provide energy without jitters and soothe you. Lemon myrtle, tulsi, those two weird herbs, and lemongrass all promote a relaxed feeling. So I think the Yogi blenders were going for “relaxed but alert.”
You’d think this would result in a medicinal, sickly-sweet, nasty witch’s brew of herbal mush. But it doesn’t! It actually tastes like real tangerine somehow! They did a really awesome job blending it. Even the stevia is at the perfect level, and that’s saying something because stevia is usually a huge deal-breaker for me.
This tea is coming to me at the point in the year when I am just starting to feel the affects of S.A.D., so the timing is spot-on. I’ve been mediating with Headspace, taking Vitamin D supplements, and plan to start using my S.A.D. lamp again soon because the mornings are darker. But this tea is also helpful— I got cussed at by a customer yesterday and didn’t get half as upset about it as I normally do. I don’t think it was a placebo effect either because I had completely forgotten about drinking this tea until after I noticed my lack of anger and sadness.
Score 1 for the weird herbs that work, and 1 for the awesome, awesome taste!
Flavors: Citrusy, Pleasantly Sour, Sweet
This is one of my favorite teas, and definitely my favorite to drink plain. It’s naturally quite sweet. I can’t say I drink it regularly enough to have noticed any effects on my skin either way, but the flavor by itself keeps me buying this. I typically just leave the bag in the cup while I’m drinking it.
