I was excited about this tea the moment I opened the tin – it smells AMAZING, and it tastes just as good! It’s just spicy enough, and the coconut is nice but not overpowering. After reading some other reviews I may have to try my next cup with a splash of milk (so fitting during Indy 500 qualifying!).
38 Tasting Notes
I got this as part of a little 4-tin set, each with 4 tea bags – when I took the plastic wrapping off the stack of tins, I was a little alarmed that it ALL smelled like peach. I thought it would be totally overpowering and too synthetically sweet and fruity, but thankfully it’s proving me wrong – it’s nicely peachy without being over the top, and the ginger lends a nice little bite to it.
I got a bit of this as a sample, and have been pleasantly surprised – the lemon smell is lovely, and the ginger adds just the right amount of spice.
I’m about 3/4 of the way into my cup, and definitely feeling a lot more relaxed – not quite ready to doze off, but it’s definitely doing its job. The taste… eh. I’m not a fan of chamomile, but there are enough other ingredients with it to make it tolerable.
This is a fantastically strong tea that makes a perfect accompaniment to breakfast on those mornings some “get up and go” is needed.
This tea not only smells fantastic, but it tastes great, too – the fruit flavors are there, but not enough to overpower the tea.
So, it tastes terrible – there’s no two ways about it. If it tasted more of licorice, I might enjoy it more. But, it HAS been kind of helpful. I just wish I didn’t have to bolt down a cup to get the benefits because I can’t stand the taste. I’m keeping my box as a last resort, but honestly? I’d rather treat my symptoms with a Snickers, Excedrin and a cup of tea I actually like.
I seem to be one of the few who actually likes this tea. It’s got a nice light flavor, slightly minty, and definitely sweet. And it does its job well – it’s great at bedtime, and has helped me get to sleep on many a rough night.
The flavor of this tea is definitely more subtle than the (very lovely) aroma, but it’s quite enjoyable. The strawberry is definitely the most obvious bit of it.
I’m usually not hugely into herbal tea, but this one is quite nice – the ginger adds just enough spice, and can be helpful for an upset stomach. The lemon flavor isn’t overpowering, and it smells wonderful.
I was initially a bit concerned about how “synthetic” the lime and mint flavors would be in this tea, but I needn’t have worried! It tastes wonderfully like a proper mojito. All it’s missing is a little bit of rum! Today’s cup is providing a bit of escape from a difficult writing assignment – one sip and suddenly I’m back on the deck at my favorite beach-side restaurant, enjoying the sun and the breeze with a mojito and a good book!
A good strong cup to get the brain turning over as I sit down to formulate discussion posts for class, and wade in on some required reading material (and something to read for fun as a reward!).
This has been the perfect cup of tea to calm down with after a night of writing a paper on a particularly unpleasant topic. It smells wonderful, and I’m pleasantly surprised by the taste – it’s not overpowering like I thought itm ight be.
One of my best friends sent me a big box of this when I moved house & had to leave my tea stash behind, & I’ve been enjoying it ever since – it’s a proper “get up and get going” cup of tea. Early race mornings, late-night homework and writing sessions, the mid-afternoon doldrums… they’re all no match for this tea. One of my favorites, for sure.
