From Yogi Tea

Embark on a journey to the ancient Mayan temples, where prized cocoa beans were ground and mixed with spices to create a sacred beverage that symbolized fertility and prosperity. We’ve taken this combination into the modern era by combining cocoa shells, which supply powerful antioxidants, with the traditional Ayurvedic warming and cleansing spices of cardamom, clove and organic cinnamon bark. The result is a perfectly balanced blend of flavor and health.

Delicious, chocolatey smell. Taste is subtle and slightly bitter.

It has been a long time since I last had this! I’m having this as a super late night cuppa. This tea was something that my husband actually liked a lot. So I just found out I wasn’t out of it and I figured I’d give it a run.
It is warm and spicy, but not overly so. I like the slight chocolate. I think a lot of the Yogi teas I’ve had lately are very cinnamon-y. Which isn’t bad at all. This has an underlying flavor I can’t quite put my finger on. But it is all pretty good.
I seem to like all these Yogi teas everyone hates. lol

This is the only Yogi tea I can say I really like. It’s nice with milk.

Tamm

I will have to try that! I still have about five pouches of this left.

This is the first and only Yogi tea I’ve tried that isn’t annoyingly, cloyingly licorice-y. As a matter of fact, licorice doesn’t even show up on the ingredient list. The sweetening evidently comes from stevia, chicory and cinnamon. Not bad straight, no milk. Worth finishing the cup, but don’t know that I’d do a rerun.

Jillian

Is it quite spicy?

gmathis

I’d give it a 7 on a 1-10 scale.

Update: I HAVE FOUND THE SECRET RECIPE, MASTER! MASTER, IT IS ALIVE!
[/end Frankenstein’s Igor voice] …Ahem. Yes, I am odd.

Try this so-called tea, double bagged, in combination with Tazo’s Decaffeinated Chai, a little half & half, and some Splenda. The inscription of “herbal supplement” on the box should really mean “do not drink this without real tea,” because if you pair it with a strong black, then I don’t think it’s not half bad, kiddles!

Tea Tag “Gratitude is the open door to abundance.”

The instructions actually call for sweetener and milk or milk substitute! I fail to follow directions apparently.

I was expecting a stronger flavor, but this is a very nice spiced chocolate tea (tisane). It is very tempting to make this with some black tea and honey though so it’s a bolder body.

This was a gift from a co-worker who heard me and my mad science experiment with the milky way packet and coconut chai earlier.

Strange taste…almost artificial. The cocoa tastes almost like leather…milk&honey don’t do much good either. And what are those oily spots that swim on top of my brew?Actually I start to feel kind of nauseous.
Oh God…and still a whole bag to go.

If it’s that bad, you are allowed to throw it away!! Or maybe find someone who likes it?

Cofftea

The “oily spots” are actually a very good thing! Those are the essential oils leaving the tea leaves. When you see those you know you’re getting the all the stuff that’s good for the rest of your body, not just your tongue.

If you check the ingredients,cinnamon oil, cardamom oil, and ginger oil are all in the list… and “Cofftea” is right for actual TEA products… it’s the sign for ceylon tea in particular that it was processed correctly and stored well; for this, it’s the cinnamon/cardamom/ginger OILs though… and even chocolate has fat in it—good chocolate will leave an oily residue, too, when melted in water.

Kind of a weird duck. Not tea, not hot cocoa, not creamy, but not totally watery, has some mouth coating/filling quality. Not traditionally chocolaty, but reminiscent of a chocolate cocoa-y flavor. Boardering, on but not quite medicinal.

And yet not bad. It grows on you. I think it would be good late at night when you don’t want caffeine and might otherwise have a cup of something by Celestial Seasonings, but want something fuller, more flavorful and mouthfilling. But without caffeine or calories. Best with sweetener and warmed milk added.

I’m a fan of reading ingredients before I buy stuff… I know licorice and I don’t get along, for instance, so most Yogi teas are out (incidentally, people with high blood pressure or on blood thinners shouldn’t consume licorice)…

I’m confused by the migraine and wouldn’t blame tea—especially as the neurological signal from sip to brain would take about fifteen minutes with even the most intense triggers like MSG. Fluorescent lights are a bigger risk than ANYTHING on this label. My background is in neurology AND I have migraines at times… they come with hormone changes (females especially at the start of a cycle), they come with free glutamic acid, and then environmental and stress triggers… maybe if the person were SUPER SENSITIVE to ginger that could make for a reaction, but not the amount in a tea bag.

So yeah, I read the ingredients… chicory has a chocolate mimicking taste-it’s what makes the chocolate Fiber One bars more chocolatey than normal (and it has fiber). This isn’t truly decaf, and for me, it requires 2 bags… but more often, I’ll make 12-16 ounces and use 2-3 bags vanilla hazelnut by Yogi and 1 bag of this (this one’s much stronger but still not especially strong). It MUST have milk—it’s awful without—and sugar, too, is recommended (it says upfront add sweetener and milk or milk substitute—this too makes doubling the bags a must)…

That said, I don’t fault Yogi for this phenomena, but tea bags almost NEVER have the amount of tea/spices that you’d actually use (even if your “loose” tea was crushed like this, it’d still be more than this)… so be prepared to use more with most bags if they aren’t abundant in “flavors” which could be anything and which almost always are extremely concentrated, unlike “real” ingredients.

I like it. Whether I should or not is debatable… I make it very strong, again typically mixing it with the vanilla hazelnut (which is oddly named as it’s also more like a vanilla chai flavored tisane whereas this is a chocolate chai type tisane)… but this came first, long before the vanilla hazelnut one was introduced, so I’ve plenty of experience with this… oh, and it’s also really neat to use steeped cocoa spice tea as the base FOR actual hot cocoa—droste cocoa, milk or cream (the latter if you’re like me), sugar, and a very strong concentration of this—4oz or so—and boom, you’ve cheated on your spicy cocoa and don’t have to stir and simmer anything on the stove.

This teabag was a gift from Lisbet. I luckily read the reviews here before I made it. I made a smaller cup with this teabag than I otherwise might have to increase the strength and I added a couple of tablespoons of rice milk to it. I don’t think I would have liked it at all without the addition of rice milk. It’s ok. Drinkable. I taste a mild chocolate flavor and a fair amount of cinnamon. It’s been a snowy morning here and this is a nice mid-morning treat.

You know, when I first bought this one I really liked it. By the end of the box I found myself hating it. I think I’m off chocolate teas right now.

Watered down cocoa with mild spices – doesn’t taste as bad as it sounds. Kind of a sleep-inducing potion, nice on this freezing evening.

I am trying to finish most of my bagged tea… to be free of it!

Lovely evening listening to Donavon Frankenreiter with a cup of this and reading through my blogs. I love the bit of cinnamon that is present in this tea.
