73 Tasting Notes
I have been having some heartburn with the second half of my pregnancy, so I decided to try this tea. It had a mild minty/herbal flavor, and did provide some short term relief. However, I think the spearmint in the tea actually aggravated my heartburn in the long run. Chamomile tea seems to be a better choice for me, as it reduces my heartburn by a small but noticeable amount for a significant length of time. I may try marshmallow without mint in the future, but I won’t be buying this again.
Flavors: Herbs, Mint
I tried the bagged version of this. It is quite good. It has a nice blend of spices, and just a hint of pumpkin to give it a unique twist. The underlying tea flavor was smooth and not at all bitter. I wish the pumpkin flavor was a little stronger, but I think I’ll be buying more regardless.
Flavors: Pumpkin, Spices
I tried the bagged version of this. It’s a pleasant chocolate tea, but I couldn’t taste the hazelnut at all, which disappointed me. It is decaf, which is a big plus for me, since I’m extremely sensitive to caffeine, but it didn’t taste as good as Stash’s Black Forest Cake – it was a bit bitter, and didn’t have as complex a flavor. I’ll probably buy this again though, unless I find a decaf chocolate tea I like better.
This was a rather interesting tea. The smell was somewhat medicinal, so I was a bit concerned, but it tasted good. It was a very mild tea that reminded me of granola – cinnamon, nuts and oats. I think Celestial Seasonings’ Bengal Spice is still my favorite cinnamon tea, but I might end up picking up more of this as it’s a VERY different experience.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Nuts, Oats
I’ve been a fan of Bigelow’s vanilla chai since college. The cafeteria stocked it, so I drank it with some regularity. The problem was that I am very sensitive to caffeine, so I couldn’t drink it as often as I wanted to. So I am very pleased to find a decaf vanilla chai that I enjoy. I might even like this better than Bigelow’s. The vanilla comes through very will, and it’s very smooth, not bitter at all. I will definitely be getting more of this.
Flavors: Smooth, Spices, Vanilla
I don’t know if I just got a bad batch or what, but this tasted like honeybush with a chemical or alcoholic aftertaste. It didn’t taste like peanuts, or chocolate at all. I did not enjoy it. I’m very disappointed, since there are some reviews that make it sound really good.
Flavors: Alcohol, Artificial, Wood
