26 Tasting Notes

Alongside another Yogi tea, I received this tea as a sample from the company. I didn’t really know what to expect, as I’ve never had a tea with lavender in it before, and honestly, I almost expected to hate it. I assumed it would taste too artificial and overpowering.

How very wrong my expectations were though! The tea, once brewed, had a very delicate smell. The honey and lavender were apparent, without being overwhelming, in terms of smell and flavor. There was a hint of mint and a slightly sweet and fruity taste as well.

I felt that it lived up to its name as well as being a good tea for stress relief. I felt much more relaxed and calm after drinking this. Overall, I did not expect much from this tea, but after trying it, this is definitely something I’d keep regularly stocked at home.

I received a sample of this from Yogi Tea and waited eagerly for it to arrive. Being a fan of caramel teas, I had high hopes for this tea. I wasted no time making a cup as soon as it arrived.

Though I wouldn’t say it’s horrible, I’m slightly disappointed, as I didn’t detect any caramel at all. Instead, what I tasted the most was chamomile and nutmeg and the usual “herbal” flavor that all Yogi teas seem to have. Regardles, I finished my cup and would probably buy a box of this tea to keep around, because, even though it didn’t taste as I expected, it was still a very relaxing tea to have before bedtime.

It’s hard to find my favorite black decaf, PG Tips, where I live and was excited to see a possible alternative at my local grocery store. Despite reading that the decaf British Blend was better, I decided to give this a try.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with this tea. I had to steep a single cup for about 10 minutes just to get some flavor. As per my usual cup, I added a dash of milk and no sugar, but this didn’t help much. Overall, it was just bland, bland, bland.

I may buy this if I’m completely desperate, but I’d much rather wait until my PG Tips Decaf becomes more widely available.

drank Apricot Vanilla Creme by Tazo

I haven’t sampled many Tazo teas, but when I passed this one in the store, I just had to try it. I’m so glad I did, too!

The flavor and aroma is light and fruity. The apricot tastes natural and fresh and blends in well with the vanilla. This tea has a lot of depth, and I can’t imagine myself getting bored with it. It just tastes so wonderful!

drank Sweet Dreams by Bigelow

This is such a nice tea to drink when you’re stressed, feeling anxious, or just needing to wind down before bedtime. It tastes great sweetened with a little honey, but it’s great plain too.

The smell of this tea is very warm and inviting. The flavor is somewhat sweet on its own and tastes mostly like mint with chamomile undertones. Nothing about this tea is either overpowering or dull. It’s just right.

This is my favorite peppermint tea. It smells and tastes so wonderful; both being very light and refreshing. I drink it mostly when my stomach is upset and it always makes me feel better.

I’ve been in the mood for blueberry teas lately and decided to give this one a try. The smell is pretty nice, but I feel that the tea itself lacks in flavor. It reminds me of when you’ve been chewing a piece of fruity gum and almost all the flavor is gone yet you can still taste just a little if you chew enough. I might finish the box off, but I wouldn’t buy this again.

I am obsessed with anything and everything peach, so I was really excited to try this, expecting it to be just as good (if not better!) than the other Lipton white tea flavors.

Unfortunately, though it smells amazing, the flavor is less than desirable. The first flavor that you taste is the peach, but a bitter, unpleasant artifical mango flavor quickly appears and leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Just because I hate to waste money and food, I might be able to finish off the box, but this is definitely not something I’d ever buy again. I’m sure there are a million better teas out there than this one.

I really wanted to like this tea, because it smells pleasant, but I think it tastes too artifical and nothing like what I was hoping. The apple flavor isn’t too bad, but I found the cinnamon to be overpowering and the underlying flavors were weak and inconsistent. I definitely wouldn’t buy this again.

This is my first white tea, and given the fact that it’s your basic grocery store tea, I’d assume it’s not the best quality white tea, but nonetheless, this tasted very good and is something I’d definitely buy again.

It smelled amazing before I even opened the box, and the wonderful fruity smell only intensified as it steeped. The taste was light and delicate, and the blueberry was definitely the star of the show. This was a nice alternative to my usual strong black tea, but was still just as satisfying.
