Huh. Interesting. A friend of mine gave me a couple of bags of this tea to try and it’s okay. I definitely get the chocolate and just a tad of fruitiness and, yes, cake. Definitely red velvet. Not something I’d want to drink every day, but a tasty little experiment nonetheless! Had mine with a bit of milk and honey.
10 Tasting Notes
I was very skeptical when my friend gifted me a few bags of this unassuming black tea. Color me impressed! So nice with milk and honey. I’m a fan!
I waited several attempts before reviewing this, and I’m not in love. I think I was expecting it to be more citrusy and refreshing (along the lines of Tealuxe’s Unity Blend that I enjoyed the other day) and no such luck. I’m a tea newbie, but I’d say it’s more savory than I would’ve like. Also, since I prep this tea in my tumbler and drink it throughout the day I have to add: this tastes like swamp water when it’s cold. Definitely try to enjoy it while it’s still warm!
LOVE THIS. It’s refreshing – like an herbal lemonade, but you definitely feel that distinct zing from the ginger! It smells like a melted lemon drop candy and would probably taste great iced and with honey. However, I enjoyed this hot with no sugar. Absolutely divine.
A bright almost orange-flavored chai – no orange in there though! Has a good amount of spice to it. I had it chilled, without milk or sugar. (Tea is how I convince myself to drink enough water every day!) I like that it’s rooibos, so I won’t oversteep it and make it bitter.
Thanks to Rachel for recommending I try a rooibos-based chai!
Sickeningly sweet. I enjoy the spicy and sweet notes of Yogi Detox, and was hoping that this herbal tea would be a nice alternative. Unfortunately, I think they went overboard with the Stevia Leaf. I feel like it coats my mouth with each sip. That being said, I am drinking it cold, so it might be more palatable when hot.
UPDATE: Tried it hot. Much more tolerable. Improved my score.
Ooh, I remember trying this in April! I was visiting a friend and grabbed a bottle of this to go with my deli sandwich. I really liked it. I’ve had a few bottle kombucha drinks and this one didn’t disappoint: fizzy, sweet, but with a bite to it. It feels like a “grown up” drink to me. It’s not super sweet juice or soda, or a beer (not up my alley) – just light, tasty and refreshing.
I’m not an expert on tea, but the natural sweetness and spicy notes of this tea has made me care about what’s in my cup! It’s veeeeery smooth.
I’ve joined Steepster to get recs on teas that I’ll enjoy as much (and hopefully more!) than Yogi Detox. Enjoy in good health!
