I perpetually bounce around with my feelings on this tea, because I think it’s weird. My attitude on whatever day determines if that’s good weird or bad weird on a given day. Tonight is good weird.

There’s a lingering licorice root type of sweetness to the cup that counteracts most of the spice in the cup, but leaves just enough cayenne kick to tickle the back of my throat. There’s a lot of ginger flavor here as well, but the licorice is easily the dominating flavor. I like the cup a lot more as it cools as the sweetness lightens slightly and the cayenne packs more punch. I don’t really get much in the way of cocoa, but I want to try brewing this up in a cup of hot chocolate some night to see what that does for me.

interesting, licorice and hot pepper flavors up front with ginger and cinnamon following after.
i dunno about this one, i wanna like it but i kinda don’t like it but i still wanna buy some more just in case i might like it.
After reading other reviews i decide i’ll get some more and maybe try it some hot chocolate :)

Thomas Edward(Toad)

This kinda seems like something I would enjoy, but no… at first I thought teabags were to blame but I cut them open and so brewed it like loose leaf tea. There is a strange bitter-sweetness I don’t like here. I checked the box a few times to see if it had stevia, roobois or something of that nature. I think it’s just a bad combination, the licorice is fighting with the other ingredients and the result is a toxic mess that I need to hold my nose to finish drinking…. ewwwww. Just don’t go there!

I find that licorice hides in a lot of herbal teas, which is one reason I shy away from, and I think Yogi uses a lot of licorice.

TeaBrat

I don’t mind licorice but perhaps this one was overkill?

Tabby

All of their blends have licorice in them, I swear. D:

Eibhilin

I’d agree on the licorice, but I’m never sure if it’s that or the stevia I don’t like. X_X

Lisbet

I didn’t like this one myself, and I like Yogi Teas for their effects a lot of the time.

TeaBrat

it was truly icky…

Lena sent me a bag of this in a box with some other stuff and I’m actually glad that she did because I always thought this tea sounded interesting, but I wasn’t brave enough to buy a whole box.

The smell of the dry teabag was kind of…unfortunate. It’s like ginger, licorice, and cayenne pepper all had a huge orgy or something. It was just so many strong scents at once that it was overpowering. Luckily when I added the water it toned down and there was actually a bit of a cocoa scent that creeped in aswell.

I was afraid that the tea would be hideously spicy, but it actually wasn’t bad – certainly not any hotter than a straight gingerroot tea might be. There’s a surprisingly sweet taste at the beginning – probably from the licorice root – and the heat follows behind it, although it’s slow to build up so it almost seems to creep up on you. It’s a very intriguing tea but I’m not sure the various ingredients mesh that well. Glad I got to try it though!

Just like I get frustrated with hibiscus-happy fruit teas, I dislike spice teas that lead with licorice. I’ve tried this, and if the licorice were left out, it might not be bad.

Jillian

The licorice isn’t that bad in this tea, even though it is quite noticable. It’s nowhere near my utter loathing of hibiscus though.

This is surprise in a cup. It lingers in your mouth. It warms you up from the inside out. I want this as a latte pronto. I must drive to the store after work tomorrow and buy this. I hope they have it! They better have it! I love it! It’s like Mexican hot chocolate with spice! And tea! A lot lighter but I love that kick! Thank you! Yay!

moraiwe

Yay! I’m glad you like it! I wasn’t a huge fan myself so I popped a couple bags in the box in hopes that someone could show it some love!

Yogi tea LOVES LOVES LOVES their ginger. All I smell in the unsteeped tea bag is ginger. After brewed (5 minutes, hot water, no sugar) all I still smell is ginger. The taste is, you guessed it, predominantly ginger, but there is also a spicy burn, brought on mostly by cayenne and cardamom. With each sip, you smell the ginger, then taste ginger with sweetness, finally before it is gone, you are left with burning brought on by cayenne pepper.

I like it, it’s definitely different, spicy and strange, but I like it. Would definitely be better if it was blended with either a black tea, or a creamy flavored (like vanilla or coconut) tea.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me an envelope of this tea.

This is a very interesting spice blend – The chili offers some spice but the chocolate and anise counteract it just enough to make it not spicy – it is actually SWEET. A nice, licorice-y flavor to it, but I think that the licorice flavor sort of overwhelms the cup just a little bit, making this a licorice tasting tea, not a chocolate-y spice flavored tea that I anticipated it to be… not that it’s bad, just not quite what I expected it to be, and I am a little disappointed there.

But I am really glad I got to try it.

I once went to a Mexican restaurant and ordered the hot chocolate. I assumed they would have a ton of spices in it. Instead, I’m pretty sure they just took a plain package of hot chocolate and mixed it with water (they could have at least used milk). But the rest of the dinner was boring too. This is kind of the spiciness I wanted the hot chocolate to taste like. I actually steeped a bag of this in some hot chocolate once, and it wasn’t bad! I originally got a free sample of this and liked it so much, I bought a box. Very sweet and spicy! I don’t usually like ginger very much, but the other things in this tea kind of mask it.

This clever cup is a cocoa, cayenne pepper, cardamon, and ginger herbal. Very very exotic. The blend of flavors is perfect and I feel excellent. This is spicy and it will get you ready to enjoy the evening. You can call this Mexican herbal tea, or Southwestern.
