Sipdown! (13 | 360)

I’m not sure when or why I bought this one, but it was a terrible idea. I don’t generally like honey-flavored teas (even though I like honey) and this also has licorice root…

Given all of that though, it’s not bad. I sipped through the whole box without complaining, if that tells you anything. Mostly it tastes like chamomile with some extra sweetness. I do get a touch of that licorice note in the background, and the accompanying sweetness at the end of the sip, but it’s pretty minimal. The honey is quite mild as well, and it’s contributing more of a light clover-y floral note than anything?

So overall, mostly chamomile with a touch of licorice root. Not something I would buy again, but it was fine to sip on as my last tea of the evening each day.

Flavors: Anise, Chamomile, Clover, Floral, Honey, Licorice, Licorice Root, Nectar, Pollen, Smooth, Sweet, Thick, Wildflowers

Strange VariaTEA TTB: Tea 24

The box returned and it’s huge. I really wanted to have something from it but it’s late and I’m super tired after leaving the house before 6 am. Plus, I developed a subtle cough at work and now my throat is feeling slightly off which could just be because I’m tired. That said, when my throat feels like this, I don’t necessarily pick up on more nuanced flavours so this tea seemed like the right call. Mint tea. Warm and soothing and I know what to expect. It’s not overwhelming mint, but it’s clearly mint and it’s helping my throat.

Michelle

Sounds like the right tea at the right time, a soothing cuppa.

drank Elderberry & Echinacea by Pukka
1714 tasting notes

The berry flavor is pretty pleasant. Unfortunately, I don’t know that I’m as big a fan of the echinacea and other herbs in here. They make it a little too savory and herbal. I’ll always try a new Pukka flavor in a TTB though!

drank Love by Pukka
1714 tasting notes

I taste licorice and some mild fruitiness, but it’s not super deep or delicious. It’s really just thin and a little too herbal/savory for me. The fruit isn’t very authentic. I’m glad I only grabbed a single bag from a TTB!

The lemon and honey combine to make a nice gentle tea. It’s not sour at all, and I also don’t taste any ginger. There’s some sweetness from the licorice. It all combines in a really soft, pleasant way. I’m drinking this cold, and I really wouldn’t mind some more if I come across this one again. The reviews for this one are brutal and in my opinion undeserved.

drank Vanilla Chai by Pukka
1899 tasting notes

Thought I’d have a nice caffeine-free chai in bed tonight, but this was not nice at all. It smells of cinnamon and tastes like licorice. Way too much licorice root. There is a faint cinnamon flavor, but that cloyingly sweet licorice aftertaste is too much. The liquid itself is also very light. Not a fan of this one at all.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice Root

drank Three Ginger by Pukka
1714 tasting notes

This has a nice strong ginger flavor. It’s good sweetened, but nothing special. I think I still prefer straight ginger, but I am enjoying the little extra something that’s here. It’s not that spicy. I like it cold and sweetened. I wouldn’t have minded grabbing another bag or two of this from the TTB!

I need to keep an eye out for this one because it sounds like it would make a great tea soda that would taste like Gingerale.

AJRimmer

That’s a great idea!

drank Turmeric Glow by Pukka
1714 tasting notes

I didn’t realize this had green tea in it, so I brewed it like an herbal, but that seems fine. I taste the turmeric most strongly. I also might taste something else fruity or herbal. It all combines decently pleasantly. It was nice warm or cold, but I wouldn’t really choose to have it again.

Skysamurai

Sounds like a good one to save for when youre under the weather.

AJRimmer

True! Luckily I only had one tea bag of this one.

drank Elderberry & Echinacea by Pukka
296 tasting notes

A comforting, fruity tea, like a bowl of warm, tart berry jelly you can eat with a spoon. Well maybe not quite that sweet. I do tend to grab this when I see it in a store because I know it is a soothing cup, even if it is pricey for a bagged tea. I can use one bag in 12-16 oz of water and not be disappointed with a weak tea.

Flavors: Berry, Smooth, Tart

I haven’t found a Pukka tea I like, but your note gives me hope. I have a few bags of this one in the cabinet I haven’t tried yet.

This is the only pukka tea i’ve tried. I’ve been contemplating getting a sampler to try more flavors because I liked this one so much… but several of my friends have said that most of their teas are just ok.

drank Feel New by Pukka
2902 tasting notes

So I was involved in a Yarn and Tea Swap. I was paired with a swap partner across the country, and we sent each other some tea and some yarn and a few other holiday treats. I know she got hers (I sent local yarn and local tea), and my package arrived today, which is lovely.
She sent me an entire advent from Pukka, which is lovely! A new tea every day, and as I didn’t get a tea advent this year, this excites me.
The first tea in it was this “Feel New”, which was a very delicate brew. It tasted mostly of the fennel, so it was very herb-y.
I have a few cups to catch up, but I’m excited to have a little treat this month!

Aww that’s so sweet! I thought about trying Pukka’s advent, but I have too many already heh heh…

Another little sample excursion from Michelle—these have been fun little diversions at work, and boy, was this a departure from my normal afternoon break choices! There wasn’t quite as much fennel as the time my husband accidentally dumped a half jar into the spaghetti sauce, but it wasn’t far behind! With the cinnamon, the spice mix reminded me a lot of the Christmas pfeffernusse I’ve mentioned having as a kid. Probably not one I’ll hunt down, but it was fun to try and fired up a different set of synapses.

AJRimmer

Oh the thought of that spaghetti sauce makes me shiver!

That one is in our Hall of Fame of Kitchen Disasters, right behind The Turkey Pan that Exploded and The Slug That Shorted Out the Stove.

Drank the single teabag I had. Truthfully, this is terrible and I couldn’t drink more than a couple of sips. The fennel and licorice is just so strong. Combined with the chamomile…just not good.

Flavors: Chamomile, Fennel, Licorice

I wish I could actually taste the fennel seed here. It’s all chamomile and sweet licorice root, softened by vanilla flavor and honey flavor. Too much of tastes I’m picky about (chamomile, licorice, honey).

:(

drank Three Mint by Pukka
1313 tasting notes

Steeps darker than any mint tea I’ve had. When it was still very hot, I thought the flavor muddled and muddy. As it cools, it’s a subtle blend of mints, fresh from the peppermint, some light spearmint (moreso in the aroma), a touch dried cut grass and quite mineral. I don’t know what field mint is so can’t comment on its contribution. Like the flavor clearing up as the tea cools, I notice some body coming out, especially as I swallow. Sweetness in the back of the mouth and throat develops over several minutes.

While it’s not something I’d seek out since I prefer pure peppermint teas, this was a nice change of pace for a bagged mint blend.

Flavors: Alfalfa, Cut Grass, Mineral, Peppermint, Spearmint, Sweet

drank Elderberry & Echinacea by Pukka
1313 tasting notes

Layered rich, warm and spicy-sweet aroma with a strange something – I think it’s the echinacea. The sweetness on the tongue is more mellow than expected, considering licorice root is the first ingredient listed. It is also liquidy brown sugar tasting rather than cloyingly sweet. Its thickness hits on the sip where it transitions to the taste of echinacea-mild orange peel mixed with subtle tart and earthy berry-type flavors and then swallows with the elderberry syrupy flavor and mild ginger mixed with licorice root; lingering tart aftertaste.

Simple conclusion: good enough bagged herbal tea but…

Flavors: Berry, Brown Sugar, Earth, Elderberry, Ginger, Herbs, Licorice, Orange Zest, Sweet, Tart, Thick

Two of my sniffle-season favorites.

Sounds good, especially the lingering tart aftertaste :)

Great combination of flavours. The vanilla gives a creamy note which softens the harshness that I normally find with chamomile.
