339 Tasting Notes
I usually stay away from Bigelow blends, unless it’s either the straight chamomile or the straight peppermint ones, because they tend to be WAY too fast and loose with the hibiscus in their herbal blends. But for some reason, I don’t seem to mind it in this one.
This is mild and sweet. Just kind of generic and meh. I’m gonna down it because I want the chamomile to do its thing and make me feel sleepy.
I happen to have a lot of this tea because someone gave me a whole box of it as part of a gift. But I daresay that when I finish these bags up, I won’t be restocking it. I’ve had much better bedtime blends from other companies.
I thoroughly enjoy this one. You’d think that it would be really bitter and unpleasant, but it is actually very smoky and mellow. This morning, I chose it because mate helps me to feel full (thus, I don’t feel the need to overindulge with mid morning snacks) and because it is super efficient at waking me up without giving me jitters.
I tasted burnt toast notes, chocolate, and earth. Absolutely wonderful idea to mix mate and black tea together! They really work well as a blend.

Peppermint tea is one of those simple pleasures in life. I like it because it’s such a warming, soothing herbal tisane that has so many health benefits.
Today, I’m hoping that it helps lower my blood pressure- we had a plumbing issue this morning that got fixed, but has now become a leaky ceiling problem.
So I’ll just continue to sit here and sip my tea, hoping and praying that everything works out okay.
Decided to try this one again. I think as long as I only drink it once in a great while, it’s no worse than having a few beers. (Which again, I only do once in a great while.)
I really love the flavor. The hazelnut and carob are wonderful together. I adore hazelnut coffee, so it makes perfect sense that I enjoy this one. It’s like having dessert, without the calories and sugar.
Except that this drink does exactly the opposite of what hazelnut coffee does! I definitely feel drowsy, and my tongue tingled a little while I was drinking it, although I’ve been assured that that is normal while drinking kava. I’m definitely only going to drink this one before bed or when I know I don’t need to drive or be anywhere after.
This is easily the best-tasting tea from Yogi that I’ve ever tried. I’m glad I decided to give it another chance.
I went to scoop some leaves out for a cuppa tonight, and… Uh-oh! I scraped the bottom of the tin! Why did I go through this so quickly?
…. Oh right, because it’s delicious.
With a spoonful of organic honey, this is the perfect health drink. The honey, which has antimicrobial properties, takes the bitter edge off of the hibiscus and cranberry, and rounds out the elderberry, currants, rosehips, and rooibos.
I need to restock this stuff!
200th tasting note! Wow.
A mug of this stuff, steeped at exactly 170 degrees F for three to four minutes, and stuffing copious amounts of processed junk food into my mouth is how I’m choosing to deal with that excruciating phone interview I just had.
Being a college senior looking for a job sucks. Especially if you happen to be painfully shy and not good at interviewing. Stammered, repeated myself, and rambled.
Well, this blend is good, as always. Yogi herbal blends are hit or miss, but their green tea blends are always right on. Yay for minty, fruity, sweetness!
