Mmmm! I was expecting the coconut to be totally overpowered by the chai spices, but man was I wrong! The coconut is light and sweet and perfectly balanced with the cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Delicious!

I really like this one too. :))

I’m a huge fan of coconut!

drank The Earl Grey by Twinings

A very nice bagged EG. I like to drink it with dinner. Perfectly balanced, and I think I’m getting licorice notes as well.

drank Sweet Dreams by Bigelow
243 tasting notes

I think I’ve put a few holiday pounds on, so from now on I’m going to drink cups of tea whenever I feel the urge to snack.

This box was given to me as a gift a few weeks ago. It’s sweet and simple. Bigelow’s herbals are usually pretty failsafe, if unexciting. This one was good enough for tonight. I’ve been stressed to the max lately, so I’m going to reach for my stress-relieving blends first as I try to get my weight back to where it was before break.

drank Green Tea Kombucha by Yogi Tea
243 tasting notes

This tea is simply beautiful. Sweet, light, fruity, and perfectly balanced. I can taste the plum flavoring very clearly, and I also detect notes of passion fruit as well.

Good for the taste buds, good for the soul. A+, Yogi. Easily the best blend I’ve ever tried from them.

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this. It’s good! A nice black tea blend. I only added honey to it, but I could taste notes of cinnamon and an earthy quality which was lovely.

Maybe Tazo has stepped up their game a little.

This tea tastes like… Olives.

Ewwwwww. I hate olives to begin with- why is my fruity tea tasting like them? I blame the rooibos. And the hibiscus.

Once the olive taste wears off, I’m left with a slightly cranberry-like aftertaste. No pomegranate to speak of. It’s like a shadow of what this tea might have tasted like if it were blended better.

Ughhh. This is exactly why I despise both rooibos and fruity herbals.

This tea is pretty straightforward. Chamomile and mint with hibiscus. No surprises, not complex or difficult to make. It’s a perfectly agreeable blend. I drink it sometimes to cure occasional restlessness, or if I just want a nice after-dinner cuppa.

Housemates have redeemed themselves a little in my view by presenting me with a large gift basket for Christmas, which contained three different kinds of tea, including this one.

How did I not know that this tisane existed? it has chamomile, spearmint, peppermint, tulsi, lemongrass, cinnamon, grapefruit, and guava. It was practically blended with me in mind!

It’s minty and fragrant and delicious. It smells almost like vanilla, and it has vanilla notes in flavor, too. I’m definitely getting the guava and chamomile, too.

Spectacular!

Housemates are being idiots again. I can’t wait to go home for a month.

This tea is a new source of comfort for me, even though I really had no business buying ANOTHER box of tea. I’m glad I did it anyway.

This is just delicious. Sweet and a little spicy, smooth and chocolatey. The smokiness of the yerba mate is virtually eliminated by the spices, but they’re not overpowering. It’s expertly blended. It feels like a dessert tea. Like, I feel like I just drank a warm, homemade, fair trade, organic, non-GMO, South American chocolate spice cookie.

Will be restocking this when my box runs out!

Profile

Bio

Hello! I’m an American college student, trying to find my way in the world. I love literature, politics, and tea.

Favorites: black, oolong, and white teas (anything with chocolate, nutty, or spice notes!); pu- erh, yerba mate, chamomile, tulsi.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re blended with floral notes.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base for me to really enjoy it.

Dislikes: Plain green teas, rooibos, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
