The tins for these four gift teas are so pretty, but since they’re plastered with the name of the tea they’re pretty much useless for anything else. That always rubs me the wrong way. What do you expect me to do with these tins when I’m done with them, Teavana?

Anyway, I’m trying to get into the habit of drinking something warm before I go to bed, and as I find sleeping very pleasant, I figured decaf herbals would be a good idea for this time of the year. Rooibos isn’t very springful to me.

I’d like something marshmallowy and vanilla-esque, maybe fruity? I’ll look for forum hits later – I figure there have to be at least a few threads on herbals.

Anyway, this is still pretty nice, but the tartness continues to make me a little squinty.

I have also wanted to get into the habit of drinking something warm before bed, and I still want to, but getting up to pee in the middle of the night is so annoying.

Anna

I was going to write, ‘Oh, I never pee.’ but that would be inaccurate. I have a magical bladder, though. Surprisingly helpful – so very little have-to-find-a-restroom stress in my life.

keychange

You know, it’s funny you mention this magical bladder, because mine tends to be that way also—although mine isn’t so much magic as it is that I probably don’t drink enough-because I pee like three times a day and apparently that’s messed up. Late night tea drinking may be my undoing, though.

cteresa

Put washi tape in layers over the tins. Or paste Japanese paper or other pretty papers. No wasted tins around here.

i hear you on tartness & feeling ‘squinty’. i just had a blueberry superfruit tea by Stash. very hibiscus.

if you’re looking for marshmallows & herbals, Teavana actually just released Marshmallow Macaron (herbal). have you heard of it? it also has fruits. ingredients: apple, raisin, papaya, toasted coconut, creamy marshmallow, hibiscus (uh-oh!) & orange. from what i’m able to gather.

gmathis

Along with Dr. Sheldon Cooper, I can confirm that repeating “I am the master of my own bladder” is ineffective. (Especially from midlife forward. You all have so much fun to look forward to!)

pyarkaaloo

i love Sheldon!!

Anna

pyarkaaloo – Thanks! Yes, I’ve read some reviews and I’d consider trying it out. However, considering how quick Teavana’s product turnover is, it most probably won’t be something I can rely on to remain in stock. Plus, and more importantly, no Teavana in Europe.

Anna

gmathis – Hahaha, thank you for putting some pep in my step this Birthday Week. It’s always good to know there are still body surprises to look forward to.

Queued post, written May 25th 2014

I took this one out of the EU TTB round 2, and I’ve been looking forward to trying it. It’s the raspberry that appeals to me here, even though the combination with mint strikes me as slightly odd. It’s not something I would have ever thought to put together myself. I’ve been waiting for a good time to have it, and I believe now is it.

The colour is borderline disturbing and there’s a smell of spearmint in this that made me actually recoil. I tried smelling the wet leaf inside the pot as well and there was a distinct aroma there of human… Nevermind that. I don’t think that’s a thought I wish to continue with.

It doesn’t smell like raspberry or any other kind of fruit though. Mostly just spearmint. Granted that’s a strong smell, a stronger smell than raspberry, so all is not lost.

It doesn’t taste like raspberry either. It tastes like hibiscus. Not surprising given the red tint to the colour. Or the grimace on my face everytime I try to sip it.

Hibiscus is not a berry. It does not taste even remotely like any berry ever. Stop trying to foist it on people claiming it’s a berry flavour!

Hibiscus tastes like blood to me. Metallic and sour and disgusting. Spearmint tastes like toothpaste, basically.

What I’ve got here is a cup of blood-flavoured toothpaste.

No thank you, says I.

Sil

lol blood flavoured toothpaste…. gross

KiwiDelight

Holy smokes that’s a first I’ve heard, hibiscus tasting like blood.

Angrboda

Sil, isn’t it just?

KiwiDelight, it’s the metallic tang that gives me that association. Probably also to some extent the colour.

KiwiDelight

It actually does remind me of blood as I see the color of the water change. Makes a perfect association in my mind because (warning: tmi) I drink hibiscus when I’m menstruating (since it’s loaded with vitamin C).

teaqueen

So the wet leaf smelled (literally) like crap, and the tea liquor tasted like blood flavored toothpaste? Ewwwwww! I’ve not been impressed with Teavana myself. I have a blackberry mojito green blend that tastes mostly like bitter hibiscus swampwater. I think Starbuck’s should stick to coffee.

Angrboda

Teaqueen, I can’t actually rightly remember now what it was it smelled like, but it was definitely some sort of… discharge. :/

Angrboda

Kiwi, I don’t think I change my habits much during those times, although I’ve attempted it. As a small experiment I have lately tried to remember to avoid caffeine and choose herbal things on the first day, because I’ve been told that caffeine can have a negative effect on cramps. I can’t say that I’ve noticed much of a difference there, though.
