drank Cold Season by Yogi Tea
757 tasting notes

Thanks, Jackie T, for sending me a variety of individual yogi tea bags! I was curious about them and this beats buying whole boxes of tea bags any day. Some of them weren’t bad either, although this one.. I think the level of of spices and ginger assume that you’re pretty plugged up already if you’re drinking this. It can be sharp and zingy, but it has its niche.

Licorice, peppermint, and eucalyptus really stick out to me here, with the ginger and spices creeping in at the end. There is a fresh-sweet aftertaste. This gets huge points for being refreshing.

yogi is a great brand… my fave is their egyptian licorice.

I was pleasantly surprised by this brand. Even though I typically have a strong dislike for licorice, I enjoyed it a lot when it popped up in the yogi blends.

I’ve been eyeing the licorice flavor in the grocery stores. I like their peppermint teas

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

White teas, roasted/fired green teas, and the not so roasted green oolong varieties are my favourites.

Currently looking for the most buttery and sweet green oolong I can find.

Ingredients/flavours I enjoy (in moderation): anise, butter, caramel, cedar, cream, floral, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lime, maple, marshmallow leaves, melon, mint, orchid, pine, rice, rose, vanilla.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike: apple, cocoa nibs, licorice, marine, peach, stevia

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

91-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

86-90: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-85: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and combined with stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
