398 Tasting Notes
I love this tea so so so so so much. It’s full of beautiful, warming spices, and it tastes like chocolate without being sweet, somehow. It’s delicious. It lingers on the tongue and warms the belly. The smoky taste characteristic of yerba mate is diminished, which is fine with me.
It has less caffeine per sachet than the Traditional Mate, but that doesn’t bother me any, because the taste is far better.
Ooooo-eeeee, as a former coffee-drinker, I can say with utmost certainty that this is the closest thing to it that the tea world has to offer. High-test stuff. The flavor is a very strong and robust nutty-astringent combo that hits you like a brick wall. Personally, I like my teas straight-up, but adding a splash of milk and/ or some honey definitely doesn’t hurt this one.
I treat this tea like I would my boss. With respect.
Ughhhhh freezing rain! Horrible.
I still maintain that this is the best wake-up tea in my collection. It’s so rich and warming. I’m getting chocolatey notes this morning, too, which complement the bergamot wonderfully.
Here’s to hoping this steaming mug of healthy glory helps chase away the cold!
My first foray into the world of pu-erh! This is lovely. It has an earthy quality and smell to it, but at the same time is very sweet and very fragrant. No milk or sugar needed! The rooibos is there, but takes a bit of a backseat to the cloves and cinnamon. Very nice! This tea is ideal for helping me lose my post-holiday weight. Also- it’s certified organic! A+ for Lifestyle Awareness teas.
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.
