8 Tasting Notes

This tea is a keeper. I love the blend of peppermint and spearmint with chamomile. There isn’t much of an aroma but it has a nice minty flavor that stays with you after each sip. The mint isn’t as robust as Stash’s Moroccan Mint but it’s very close. When I called Stash for a recommendation for a caffeine-free option to replace the Moroccan Mint, this is was what was suggested (and they sent me a free sample). This tea is very soothing and quite enjoyable.

The aroma is wonderful, very spicy and sweet. The tea itself was a little underwhelming. I steeped it longer than usual based on other reviews so that it would, hopefully, have a more robust taste. It has a light sweet flavor but it doesn’t taste like either cinnamon or vanilla. I mostly taste the chamomile and rooibos. I would drink it again but not if I was specifically craving a cinnamon tea.

if you still have the box would you be willing to share just a sample? :)

This tea is not what I expected. The fragrance was divine. You could definitely smell the pumpkin and all the lovely spices – it almost had a chai scent. However, I couldn’t taste any of those things. It just tasted like plain black tea to me, which was a bit disappointing. I will drink what is left in the cupboard but I’m not sure I’ll purchase it again. Maybe I’ll try it with a little honey and see if that brings out the flavors.

I love this tea. One of my favorites. It has a lovely fragrance and a very robust mint flavor. I only wish it came in a decaf version.

Not the best mango tea I’ve ever had but still nice. It has a lovely fragrance and color. The taste isn’t overly sweet and there is no bitterness. The fruit flavor is more of an aftertaste then a full flavor. Despite other people’s comments, I prefer this tea hot. It seems a little sour to me when it cools. However, I would drink this again.

I love this tea. It is very soothing with a sweet, fruity kick. A perfect tea for just before bed. My only complaint is that it is so difficult to find in stores.

This tea was okay. I am looking for a tea with a great deal of mint (like Stash’s Moroccan Mint) but without caffeine. This tea just didn’t do it. The mint flavor was very weak.

I have spent a great deal of time searching for the perfect caffeine-free mango tea. This was not it. It was quite sour and left a very bitter aftertaste. I’m glad I only purchased the sample size.

Bio

I’m a writer and reader – completely obsessed with books. I also have an over-the-top love of music. I’ve always been a lover of tea. There is nothing like it to soothe the soul.

Sadly I gave up caffeine one year ago. I am finding it very difficult to find caffeine-free or decaf teas that are as wonderful as my “caffeine-full” favorites. I am most often drawn to mint and citrus flavors. I also love chai, vanilla, chocolate, and chamomile. But I am willing to try anything. You just never know what you might find.

I’ve begun a process of trying many different types, flavors, brands, etc. to see what new faves I can find. I’m not picky regarding loose leaf or bagged. For me, it’s all about flavor.
