484 Tasting Notes
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!
I’m obsessed with chai blends lately. I guess I’m waiting for winter to finish up around here and let spring have a chance.
As I’ve remarked before, nothing particularly special about this one. Choice is a pretty failsafe organic option if I’m ever on the go, but I’ve yet to try a blend from them that is really memorable, save for their lapsang souchong Russian Caravan. I wish the spices were just a little bit stronger in this, but it’ll do.
Funny thing about Yogi- they’ll make a tantalizingly delicious blend full of herbs that are horrendously bad for you (looking at YOU, Kava Stress Relief!) And then make a terrible-tasting blend full of herbs that are good for you.
Like this one. Which I am only drinking because of this afternoon’s kava scare.
Here’s to a happy liver and unhappy taste buds tonight. Bottoms up.
This stuff is delicious… Chocolate and spice and everything nice.
Except that apparently kava kava root can wreak complete and utter havoc on your liver.
I sure wish I’d read the label BEFORE I bought the whole box. I got a few sips into my first cup before I read someone’s review on this tea about how risky it is for your health, and had to dump the rest out. No clue what I’m going to do with the rest of the box.
Stress relief, my foot. Stress-INDUCING, more like. I’m surprised Yogi would even use an herb that has been banned in some countries because of the health risks associated with it.
I can just tell that this tea is full of good stuff. It tastes like Sleepytime tea with echinacea, which is what it is. Just a good tea to have on hand in case anyone starts to feel a cold coming on. I don’t think I’d drink it for pleasure, because it’s a pretty straightforward medicinal herbal blend, but for its intended purpose, I’d give it a gold star.
I really love Stash. I don’t know how they do it, but somehow all of their teas manage to be dynamic and interesting, despite the fact that they’re bagged.
This is easily one of my favorites by them. Today, I got more vanilla and bergamot, and the lavender took a bit of a backseat. It went wonderfully with my cinnamon waffles.
Will be buying this again!
