A family member brought me home some tea bags and sachets that her coworkers had brought to work. One tea bag of this tea was included. My expectations were not high at all considering that this is a rooibos tea. My last rooibos tea was a loose leaf vanilla rooibos from Trader Joes and tasted horrible.
I prepared this unsweetened with about 2 TSPs of milk
Taste wise: This tea is excellent! I can taste notes of the vanilla bean, it’s a very light feeling tea but rich at the same time. The cacao notes come into play making each sip rich yet light at the same time. I was extremely impressed. It has a velvety feel to it throughout each sip.
After trying it I looked at the ingredients and saw that it has honeybush and rooibos in it. I’d never had a honey bush tea only rooibos ones.
My rating system is pretty messed up in terms of how other people rate teas I would say that using their scale it would closer to a 85.
Don’t expect a heavy chocolate flavor because again it is a very light tea that has some richness. This isn’t a tea that would make a good latte.
The flavor overall is too light and it would be easy to add to much milk to.
Very easy to accidentally cover up the flavor. You definitely wouldn’t be able to taste it when you have a cold.
Flavors: Cacao, Cocoa, Smooth, Vanilla
Thanks to the Travelling Tea Box, I’m trying some of Numi’s flavoured puerhs that have been on my wishlist for a long time (years!)
The pu’erh is from Yunnan, but tastes like poorly stored ripe tea. I get lots of the typical mushroom and Earthy tones, but I also get some fishy smell from the brewed tea. Hints of wood and mineals. The cardamom is delightful and there is also some metallic liquorice taste from the green cardamom. This is actually a really tasty tea, but I wish they had used a less fishy puerh.
Flavors: Cardamon, Earth, Fishy, Licorice, Metallic, Mineral, Spices
When I cleaned out my tea cupboard, I found this teabag I had forgotten about.
It was an ok chai with the typical chai spices. I wasn’t blown away, but it was drinkable. Some cinnamon, clove, cardamom. The black base was a bit too strong for me (could have used milk or sweetener maybe).
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Spices
After a long time, I have decided to get away from coffee and soda to get back into tea with thanks to my fiance for insisting on picking up two boxes of Numi pu-erh tea.
I have discovered that I like the Numi pu-erhs brewed with one bag for 8 oz of water and have them brewed for at least five minutes. I like taking them to work because I can overbrew them and they don’t turn bitter or gross on me. In fact, I like them brewed stronger because they have more flavor.
This one has to be drunk when it is still hot or else it has a bit of an aftertaste. It isn’t my favorite, but it is quite tasty when it is hot.
I LOVE THIS TEA! And thank God for this tea all the time!!! Thank you God! :)
Seriously though, any tea with ashwagandha and tulsi is bound to be amazing in flavor and awesome properties.
It is sweet and so soft. I find that drinking this tea during any time of the day can help unwind. Nevertheless, this tea can help strengthen your reasons for why you are a tea enthusiastic.
Flavors: Licorice, Tulsi
My mom loves this tea!!! Thank You Jesus Christ for this awesome tea! :)
I am always so very careful when preparing white tea because it is so precious and delicate.
The water temperature must be at an appropriate temperature (not too hot and not too cold). Also, I am sure not to pour the water directly onto the leaves but rather on the side of the cup (since white tea is so sensitive).
And, goodness!! This tea, once steeped (wait three minutes and then remove it from your cup), smells like love!! Absolutely delicious and so healthy for you. I think of pure unconditional love when enjoying this tea with family.
I highly recommend that you purchase this tea and taste for yourself because you will note the gentle rosebuds with every sip! Amen, and may you have a blessed day in God, :)
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
This isn’t exactly a sipdown because this was just one teabag I picked up from a cart outside of a conference that finished (unwanted wrapped teabags are great for keeping in your purse for emergencies!) They sell a cup of tea using a Numi teabag for $2.65, but give professors free choice of coffee and tea (+ lots of food) in all their meetings (catered, of course). Anyway, this isn’t really a sipdown but it is me having one less tea in my cupboard.
I really like the brown sugar/molasses vibe that honeybush has. Plus, that maple woody aftertaste is delicious. Even though honeybush is a bit plain, I still enjoy it a lot.
Flavors: Maple, Molasses, Wood
Just finished my first box, last cup right now. Turmeric has numerous health benefits and I wanted to get some of them-so why not through drinking a turmeric tea. I was skeptical of the taste. But it’s not bad actually. You can definitely taste the turmeric, along with a pleasant hit of vanilla. I do wish the cardamom cake through more, but what can you do? Overall it wasn’t terrible, thing I love enough to buy again and again, but I don’t mind it. If you are interested in the health benefits I would rxccomend giving it a try. A spoon of honey is this teas friend.
NOTE: This review is on the LOOSE LEAF version of the tea.
I enjoy Numi’s organic black teas, in bags or loose leaf, particularly their Chinese Breakfast selection. They also offer some of the best prices I’ve found for a pound of loose leaf tea during their periodic sales. A sale was going on this week so I thought this would be a perfect time to try another Numi product.
The tea leaves in the one pound bag were short and black. The smell was rich and tea-like. No specific aroma jumped out at me.
I steeped the leaves at 212 degrees for five minutes. The brewed aroma had a slightly sweet vegetable quality to it. The color was bright amber.
My whole cup of this tea maintained a pronounced and distinctive taste throughout. The flavor reminded me of sweet potatoes lightly sprinkled with maple syrup. The overall effect was quite smooth and only slightly sweet. I didn’t detect any harshness. The aftertaste was brief and appealing.
This Numi blend turned out to be even better than I hoped. The achievement made the extremely reasonable sale price that much more delightful. I am going to add this brew to my official morning tea rotation. I predict that I will be ordering another pound before this time next year.
Flavors: Maple Syrup, Sweet Potatoes
I’m pretty new to chai and not big into the strong spice but this one is actually pretty good . It feels smooth as you drink it and the spices are not too overpowering. I would buy this again for when I want something with spice but not too much
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Smooth
