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.
This tea tastes excellent — exactly what I would hope for out of a “cranberry spice” tea. Very warm and soothing, and the taste is especially perfect for fall/winter. It does seem to help a bit with digestion, too. I also like that it has just a little bit of caffeine — perfect for when I want an extra boost of energy without it affecting my sleep or making me feel jittery.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cranberry
From what I’ve read, Kombucha loses many of the properties it’s known for when it’s boiled, so I’m not sure how effective this is from that standpoint. It gave me a little bit of a stomach ache, so if you have a sensitive stomach ache I’d recommend drinking it on a full stomach.
As for the taste, it was fairly mild and pleasant, and almost tasted a little carbonated (I’m assuming because of the kombucha).
Very strong cocoa aroma, subtle mint notes, a lot of spices in the background. Energetic bouquet.
The taste is quite mellow, rather watery, with a slight ginger spicyness being the most discernible aspect. The result is simply boring, not minty enough to contrast the cocoa background.
Flavors: Cardamon, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Cocoa, Ginger, Spearmint
My panic disorder has been flaring up these past few weeks… I don’t for one second believe that this bagged tea is curing anything, but it does seem to help me sleep, which is a plus. And it tastes so good. Lavender is the most perfect herb on the planet.
I appreciate this blend especially because I recognize all of the ingredients. Yogi likes to put weird stuff in their teas (what the hell is a schizandra berry?) which makes me a little apprehensive. But this one is just what you need when you’re anxious: soothing, mild, naturally sweet, no funky random herbs and berries. Reliable.
Flavors: Flowers, Honey, Lavender, Milk, Sweet
I’ll start off by saying that I do not generally enjoy floral teas, so in terms of the flavor, this Skin Detox Tea would not be my first choice. As mentioned, the taste is very floral — particularly “rose”-like. If you enjoy rose flavor, you’ll probably enjoy the taste of this tea.
Having said that, it’s definitely not disgusting, even for someone like me who doesn’t like floral flavors very much. I do feel like it’s helping with my skin, so that’s a huge plus!
Flavors: Floral, Rose
This tea is a great alternative to coffee, for those who want to add some energy to their day without the side effects of coffee. It definitely makes me way less jittery than coffee, despite having a pretty high caffeine count (about 80% of the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee). Helps me concentrate without inducing too much anxiety or stomach aches.
As for the taste, I really enjoy it. It has the sweet/sour raspberry flavor, without being too overwhelming — I’m not always a big fan of fruit-flavored teas, as they can be too intensely sweet, but this is a nice balance.
I really enjoy licorice in real life, but this tea is just too sickly sweet for me. That being said, It is a pretty solid choice for those who like licorice root teas. You can also taste some other spices like cinnamon, orange, clove, lemon, maybe nutmeg or cardamom, ginger, and something else (citrus rind?)
Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Zest, Cloves, Ginger, Herbs, Lemon Zest, Licorice, Orange, Spices, Spicy, Sweet
Well I sort of liked it until I really looked at the ingredients: Ginseng and eleuthero root extracts, garciinia cambogia fruit extract, blend of green tea leaf, bilberry lea, hibiscus flower, green tea extract, stevia, amid fruit, belleric myrobalan and cherubic myrobalan fruit. AND … organic orange , blueberry and licorice flavor. Way too much stuff. I’m used to my “medicinal” teas being a bit less complicated. I guess I also expect that a tea called Blueberry Slim Life would actually have blueberry in it not just as a flavor listed second to the last out of 13 ingredients.
I wasn’t sure what Ginseng eluthero and garnica cambogia are so I looked them up and found that I can’t have ginseng eluthero because of a side effect with some medication I am taking. Bummer!
I’m not saying it’s a bad tea but I was just expecting a more green tea with blueberry. The taste isn’t bad at all. I have to admit that I wasn’t hungry and I did feel I had a bit more pep than I would expect. If it wasn’t for this sort of big drug interaction I would probably drink it.
I stopped by a health store the other day and as I was browsing around, I came across the tea section. I wasn’t really looking for something in particular but this one caught my eye because of its claims of energy. I recently started going back to school and my Monday classes start at 7:30 AM. Yes, super early classes at the start of the week are so agonizing! Anyway, to my surprise it did work!
Now mind you, I’m writing this review after only trying it once so this is just my first impression and I’m hoping that it won’t change over time. I steeped it in a re-useable venti Starbucks cup that was about 3/4 full of hot water and used two tea bags. I let it sit for about 8 minutes. Though I did not add any sweetener or flavoring, it tasted great! I actually didn’t add any milk and oddly it tasted like I was drinking a chai latte. The only downside is that it did taste watery and the vanilla flavor was very faint, despite using two bags and steeping it for a considerable amount of time.
I do recommend that you eat something while or before drinking this because if you’re easily affected by caffeine (This has 80 mg in one cup, so x2 I had 160 mg. Coffee has 90 mg in one cup) you’re going to want to counter the jitters or at least decrease them by having something in your stomach. I drank this during my research class on an empty stomach and I was very jittery and restless, but I did feel mentally alert. It’s been 4 hours since I drank this and the energy is still coming.
This is my first Yogi tea and I do like it and would be open to trying their other products. However, although it did stick to its claim and tasted perfectly spiced, I wish that there was more body to it.
Flavors: Spices, Wet Wood

The rooibos here is not so great. It’s a bit stronger and more smokey than I prefer. The apple flavor is light and sweet. It would probably be more authentic with a bit of tartness, but it’s a pleasant sweet apple candy sort of flavor and not too strong.
Flavors: Apple, Smoke, Sweet, Wood
Strong ginger and nice lemon grass in aroma, slight peppery notes, a little liquorice.
Very subtle green tea in taste, disctinct spicy notes from ginger and pepper, a lot of lemon undertones.
Good, balanced, the adjuncts only slightly dominate the proper tea, very refreshing.
Flavors: Lemon, Lemon Zest, Lemongrass, Licorice, Pepper
Would ya believe I actually went on a hunt for this tea? I’ve enjoyed other Yogi brand teas I’ve bought before, so I went to their website to read the ingredients of various blends and see if I could find one to suit my current situation, which is that I need some herbal teas to drink late at night to help me relax without the caffeine. I also only have one herbal tea right now, another Yogi brand, and just get a little tired of drinking the same one every night, so I wanted to find another. I wanted to find something that wasn’t fruity, minty, or spicy, so that was a challenge aside from just going with the boring old one-ingredient herbal teas.
Well, enough with the anecdotes and on to the review. This tea is pretty unique compared to other herbal teas I’ve tried. The aroma of the dry bag is definitely strongly of lavender and sage. It’s a really refreshing and cool aroma. The tea tastes savory and sweet, with sage and lavender being the predominant flavors, and in fact, I would say the sage is a little bit stronger than the lavender. The aroma and flavor almost suggest pine a bit. The taste isn’t woody like I might expect from a tea like this, and there are some really light smoky hints that I attribute to the chrysanthemum flowers in it. The tea is also very sweet from the stevia leaf in it. Well, I say very sweet from the point of view of someone who very rarely ever sweetens his tea.
All in all, I think this is a really relaxing tea. It really gives me thoughts of a forest lush with trees. I’m also reminded of the clean smell of cold winter air.
There seem to be three types of herbal tea blends that are really common on the market… fruit or dessert flavored ones, minty ones like those with mint or tulsi, and spicy ones that have ingredients like ginger, clove, pepper, and chai spices. I was looking for something that didn’t fall into any of those categories, and I’ve definitely found it with this. It’s not the best herbal tea I’ve had. I’m not overjoyed by it, but I do find it unique and really refreshing, so I think it will find a good niche in my humble stock of herbal teas.
Flavors: Lavender, Pine, Sage, Smoke, Sweet
Bagged and herbal teas are usually not my thing these days but I’ve been suffering some unfortunate physical effects from caffeine late at night and wanted to try something to calm me down more before bed. Picked this up because I love lavender and the list of ingredients was nice.
The lavender scent is most evident on the dry tea bag unfortunately, and in the pouch after you take the bag out. After you steep the tea, the lavender blends with all the other herbal aromas and is hard to discern. It also doesn’t have anything that I’d call a honey taste or aroma. Mostly I taste mild sweetness from the stevia leaf, a bit of the woodiness of the rooibos that’s in there, a hint of lavender, and some mint.
Unfortunately, when there is mint or holy basil (tulsi) in an herbal tea blend they have the unfortunate fate of all tasting rather the same to me, albeit with slightly different character. This one is really soothing and lightly sweet and does have a very relaxing taste and aroma, even if the lavender doesn’t stand out. I feel a noticeable calm and sedating effect whenever I drink this tea, similar but opposite to how caffeine hits me. I think this blend of herbs may actually have a good combination to biologically induce this, rather than just through enjoyment and aesthetic, as I feel the similar body shift into a more relaxed and lulled state every time I drink it.
The effect part of the tea’s name (stress relief) is a bit more accurate than the flavor descriptor (honey lavender), but I actually really like this tea. I can see myself buying it again. It does what it says it does, for me at least, and that is why I bought it, so I’m a happy big cat.
Still looking for a wonderful herbal tea that soothes and has no mint or tulsi though. I really love things with lavender, but maybe I should veer away from lavender a bit and look for something on the rose flavor spectrum.
Flavors: Lavender, Mint, Rooibos, Sweet
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.
