This is an okayish Chai. It isn’t the worst but I had a lot that I consider way better.

Not at all a great tea, but honestly who cares. Not all tea has to be a patrician masterpiece. It’s cheap and easy, you get what you pay for.

I caught a cold a couple days ago and have been finding it a bit difficult to breath . I’m not a fan of Vick’s vapor rub but I mean I’ve GOT to breath. This tea always helps open up my nasal passages and also helps calm the headache that comes with the constant sneezing. I love mint teas and this one in particular is one of my favs so far as it has both spearmint and peppermint combined.

Excellent cup of tea. Simple, but the bergemot gives off a wonderful aroma/essence. Great tea for all times of the day – usually have it in the evening. Has caffeine apparently but I did not notice any effects. For the price and convenience this is a great tea.

Flavors: Bergamot

I thought this combination of flavors could potentially come off harsh and bitter, but it’s actually quite delicious. It’s definitely not as astringent as I expected— the pepper hits you first but it’s pretty mild, then you taste the green tea, and then something savory and herbal. I drink this plain… it might taste weird with sugar. Green tea can sometimes give me an upset stomach, but this one doesn’t.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec

Quite a daring combo! This is the kind of tea I would be to afraid to try without making sure that somebody else had tried it and lived to tell the tale.

June Wedding! This something borrowed came from one of the volunteers in my department at the library, RoseAnn. She was cleaning out her cupboards and gave me some bagged teas to try some time ago. Thank you, RoseAnn! I thought I only had a single serving sealed foil bag of this, but somehow found another one inside a box with a different flavor of tea.

I was pretty tired (been working on transcribing a manga, and those Japanese kanji radical sheets are getting to my head!) so my first cuppa I just dropped the teabag into my cup and used the steeping suggestion on the bag of two minutes. Big mistake. I can’t stand the taste of paper teabags, and in hindsight, I’m not sure what possessed me to even drop a paper teabag into my teacup when I know full well I can’t stand the taste of paper teabags. The cup tasted of nothing but paper to me, and the tea itself was super weak, at that. Bleeeeeeeeeeech. It was immediately poured down the drain.

So. One teabag of this one remaining to try again…

Even after removing the tea from the paper teabag and steeping it in my gravity well steeper this time, it still tastes like paper somehow! This time I doubled the steep time to four minutes, and the tea is at least stronger this time around. It also has a sort of sour, acidic flavor, with a hint of orange mid-sip and an overwhelming unnatural clove taste at the end of the sip. Nothing about this is pleasant. On top of that, the tea was a fair bit on the astringent side as well, leaving quite a bit of drying of the mouth after the sip. I’m not ruling out that age may have been part of the problem with this one (I have no clue how old these gifted tea bags may have been when my volunteer gave them to me, since there were no dates on the foil sleeve around the bags), but that lingering paper/acidic flavor does not leave a good impression regardless.

Flavors: Artificial, Astringent, Clove, Medicinal, Orange, Paper

On the other hand, Constant Comment teabags are offered for free by company at my office. And in countless other offices. But yeah…

Fruit is not overbearing or too artificial, base could have more flavor. Tasted better when I accidentally let it cool down.

Drank this while waiting at my dog’s Cardiologist appointment. They usually have a good selection of teas but were running low. There were about four options left two of which I’ve reviewed before (Sweet n Spicy, and Stash Lemon Ginger). The other one that I chose not to try was Bigelow’s Earl Grey Green tea which sounded like an unpleasant flavor combination. They had more in the back but I didn’t feel like asking. I realized this as we were leaving. Her appointment went really well but I always seem to set myself up by wishing for a miracle.

This tea is more mint heavy than I anticipated with the grass notes just peeking through every so often. It’s a pleasant enough tea but not one I’d reach for.

One of my favorites from before has once again reminded me of why. I absolutely love this tea by itself (as is the case with any teas), no need to add anything. Wakes me up and gets me through the morning at work. Love it!

Drinking this instead of the Bigelow Cranberry Apple that I usually choose when given an array of their teas to choose from at a restaurant. It’s good, but feels more like a winter tea and I’m ready for spring/summer. Going for I Love Lemon next.

Flavors: Orange, Spices
