Loved this tea! I was weary of the lavender at first, but it’s not overwhelming at all. The bergamot really works well. To be fair, I absolutely adore earl gray teas, so putting bergamot in any tea can’t really go wrong for me. All of the flavors of this tea go really well together.

Very pleasantly surprised by this tea, I was expecting the peach flavor to be overwhelming but it is actually just right. Very much enjoyed this tea!

Holiday Tea-son! This was a teabag I found in the Discovery Teabox, so thanks to Skysamurai for organizing and all participants of the box! I haven’t tried this before and it fits my holiday tea theme, and though I usually switch to herbals in the evening, white tea is pretty light on the caffeine and it hasn’t gotten too late yet so hopefully this should be okay. I’ll definitely switch to an herbal pot right after this cuppa!

The brewed tea looks and smells like a cup of peppermint herbal tea, which I suppose isn’t so bad considering this includes ginger root, since a lot of bagged teas tend to way over due it with the ginger (and tend to have a somewhat nasty sort of ginger taste, too… at least, many of the bagged grocery store variety citrus/ginger teas I’ve tried have had that problem). The aroma actually has a sweet minty scent, and I wouldn’t even suspect there is ginger in this tea.

Honestly, I don’t notice much difference in this from drinking a peppermint tea, other than it tastes a little sweeter, which I am going to assume must be some mild floral aspect from the white tea, since there is no indication any flavors have been added to this tea. I do appreciate that the mint isn’t quite so strong as many mint herbals are, it comes off a bit softer and sweeter, but otherwise it’s just a mint tea. And I am appreciative that the ginger is no where to be found in the flavor. The mint/ginger combo, however, would make a nice tummy tonic, so maybe that is why it is included?

Very nice ginger tea with the perfect balance of peach

I really enjoyed this tea! Only one warning, this tea is STRONG! I feel like there are is a lot more tea in these tea bags, so I suggest making a large up, or steeping for less time. That being said, this tea was delicious and not overpowered by bergamot, which is what I find to be my issue with most Earl Grey teas. I would totally recommend this!

Stash is discontinuing this flavor, so I figured I’d try it before they did.

It’s alright, but really not that great. It might be better if they didn’t try to cram way too many different things in it. There’s chocolate flavoring, white chocolate flavoring, tiramisu flavoring, and coffee flavoring in there along with cocoa shells and cinnamon. As a result, it’s hard to pick anything out; it’s a muddle of chocolate, white chocolate and cinnamon with a vague hint of coffee in the background and oh yeah, some tea and possibly tiramisu. Maybe if they left out the cocoa shells, chocolate flavoring and tiramisu flavoring, sticking only to white chocolate, coffee and cinnamon it’d have been better.

I’ll drink the rest of what I have since it’s not terrible, but it’s not like I’d stock up on it before it’s gone.

For my birthday I decided to indulge in two things I love: tea and videogames. Subscribed to WoW and FFXIV for two more months each, and put in a pre-order for KH3. I would have liked to add Code Vein to that list, but sadly it’s been delayed to who-knows-when. Thanks, Namco Bandai. Anyway.

Unlike the white chocolate mocha which was mediocre at best, this is really good. I followed the package’s directions and steeped it for 3 minutes at 175 degrees. It tastes just like honeydew. There’s supposedly guava flavoring in it too, but I’m not picking up on it. All honeydew, all the time. The green base isn’t overly bitter or grassy, and just sort of fades into the background. I could probably drink this every day.

I’m really not of a mind to make iced tea right now, but I imagine this would make for a really nice iced tea come the spring and summer.

Tabby

I love this one so much. I have a big box of it on my Amazon wishlist, haha.

Kingdom Hearts 3. sigh. I have been waiting for this game forever but I will sadly never catch up on game systems. I also sadly haven’t been playing video games as much lately. I hope KH3 is awesome for you though! Happy birthday!

Orphia

Thanks! From the trailers it looks like it’s going to be good. A little disappointed that we didn’t get a Gargoyles level, but that’s always been wishful thinking on my part.

tea-sipper

I remember a trailer from YEARS ago where Sora is riding a wave of heartless, and that sold me!

Orphia

I remember that one! I don’t know if anything like that’ll be in the finished game, but I hope so.

What I’d really like is a bonus boss other than Sephiroth. It was fun the first couple of times, but I’d like to fight another classic baddie. Kefka, for example. FF6 was always my favorite installment in the series.

drank Moroccan Mint by Stash Tea Company
265 tasting notes

Stash’s Moroccan Mint Green is well balanced and pretty smooth. I appreciate that I can taste the green tea – Young Hyson – which I’ve never knowingly drank. I think I got a nutty impression from it. The spearmint and peppermint are both present and mingle appropriately, never overwhelming. The lemongrass is thankfully light and adds just the right amount of citrus touch. Pretty good for a bagged green tea and nice to have after a second Thanksgiving meal.

I was not expecting to like this tea much – I’m not a great fan of herbals, and the description of chocolate was not doing my impression any favors. But I was pleasantly surprised. The chocolate made it feel a bit like black tea in how my mind processed it. Rich flavors, warming, and very enjoyable.

I’m actually pretty impressed with this tea. I like that it has some matcha, and I will probably drink it again.

Growing up, I drank licorice tea all the time. This is my first time trying the version from Stash. I’m happy to report that it tastes like the flavor I love and expect. I do not like licorice mixed with real tea, but as an herbal, it’s so lovely. It’s sweet on its own, it pleasantly coats your mouth, the flavor is strong. I’ll say that I didn’t notice where the “spice” comes in. Maybe the slight warming in the mouth is from a hint of spice… But anyway, it’s been a few years since I’ve had a licorice tea on my shelf, and I’m happy for its return!

You may be one of the only other people on Steepster I’ve seen besides myself and Derk that likes Licorice Root! (It seems to be one of those ingredients along with Hibiscus and Stevia that seems to be universally abhorred around here, heh). I love it, too! (I also like fennel and anise which have quite licorice tasting notes to them!) I’ve never had this tea, though I did have a nice licorice spice blend from T2 once, and my favorite sore throat tea, Margaret’s Soother from TeaSource, is peppermint, clove, and licorice root, and it’s amazingly tasty, such a simple blend but each comes out just right (and if you do have a sore throat, the mix of menthol/licorice and touch of clove really is such a nice balm).

AJRimmer

Licorice so good! (And stevia and hibiscus are also good :P ) I always had Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat growing up. I’ll have to try those others if I come across them! It’s always fun to see the different combos brands come up with.

So this isn’t my first choice for morning cuppa, but I woke up at 3:00, gave up on sleeping around 3:30 and decided this was the best I’d be able to manage until I’d had SOME tea and could work on making a second cup of something better.

It’s not bad. But it wasn’t memorable. Possibly because I was distracted by Stardew Valley, or by being grumpy about not being able to sleep in until 4:15 as I’d planned, but either way, it’s not a bad tea. And if I hadn’t dumped so much cream in, I might have discovered more flavours.

There’ll be other cups so I can report back in the future.

I got this from Lexie Aleah as a surprise! I love pear teas, so yay! Though this was packaged as Asian Pear Harmony. I hope they’re the same thing. If not, please correct me and I will make Harmony a page.

Anyway, this is another one that I fell in love with as soon as I smelled the bag. Lovely and realistic pear aroma and flavor. Sort of like the flavor when a pear is soft, about to be overripe. It’s fruity and juicy and brews up to a cat’s eye green. The dragonwell base they used is very mild, mostly hidden under the added flavor. I could see it being wonderful both hot or iced. It’s definitely something to consider when I start thinking about spring teas…

EDIT: I tweeted at Stash to see if Harmony is the same as Dragonwell. We’ll see what they say.

EDIT 2: Stash tweeted back saying “They are similar flavors and both are green teas, but Asian Pear Harmony is bagged tea and Asian Pear Dragonwell is loose leaf.” So… yes? They are the same, it just depends on the packaging?

EDIT 3: I asked Stash if it was just the packaging, and a different rep wrote back that no, they use different green teas as a base. They use Premium Green for the bagged and Dragonwell for the loose leaf one.

Flavors: Fruity, Pear

I think they are the same but I’d wait to hear back from Stash. Stash recently has redone the packaging design on their boxed teas. So I assumed the name changed as well.

Earlier today I was seething inside about how every company out there is pushing Christmas so hard already, and how everyone needs to chill the eff out, and then I went and saw this in the story and bought it. Hypocrite much? (Maybe, but likely not).

I took the time to update my cupboard here and sift through what I have. Sorted my iced teas and herbals into grab bags I can poke into when I’m in the mood, and left my caffeinated blends out in easy reach – I don’t have enough! I think at least half my stash is either herbal or meant for iced tea. I barely have any pure black teas and only a handful of blends. O.O But before I get carried away I’m going to sip away and get into a groove with tea again – cut back on the coffee and make more tea at work. The tea press helps because my office doesn’t have easy access to a sink to wash leaves etc.

Anyway this is an okay tea. I was curious about how lavender and chocolate would work, but it does? Both flavours feature prominently but balance out. I’ll probably pawn most of these bags on my child, but ocassionally this might make a nice way to end the evening.

drank Sweet Honeydew by Stash Tea Company
664 tasting notes

I got this from Lexie Aleah! Thanks again!

I have a thing for honeydew melon. Real melon, melon candy, melon boba, you name it. But I haven’t really explored it in tea form until now. (Which is definitely something I’m going to have to correct.) So, I when I opened the packet, I was delighted. It smelled like straight up Bath & Body Works in there.

The tea came out to a bright yellow with the slightest green tint. It smells a bit more like guava than melon, but the melon flavor is very prominent. It’s what I had hoped it would be. Fruity and a little exotic, with a mild green tea base. Not a fall tea in any way, but after all those spiced and heavy black teas, this is very refreshing. The taste really does remind me of Bath & Body Works’s Cucumber Melon, though. I’m having flashbacks to my very early teens at the taste of this. Going to have to get more…

You should PM me your address so I can send you Lupicia’s Melon Oolong and Golden Honey Dew to try!

Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!

This morning begins my journey into the world of tea. A few years back I visited the Russian River Valley in Sonoma. There I stumbled across a little tea shop called Mr. Trombly’s Tea. I felt like Alice stumbling down a rabbit hole. The teas were absolutely intoxicating. Tea drinking is a experience that I would like to learn more about.

I found a box of Stash Ginger Peach green tea with matcha in my cabinet. While the aroma is lovely, the taste is a bit grassy but still a lovely way to begin the day. Stepping away from Starbucks.

One of my favorite treats with milk and sugar. Definitely tastes like chocolate mixed with something a little tangy and red. If I tasted it without knowing, I don’t think I’d call it red velvet, maybe more like a chocolate berry? I really enjoy this though.

Having a cup of this and it is still amazing.

So I just wanted to make a note to share something I learned today. Apparently The owner of Steven Smith Tea also created Stash tea and Tazo tea as well.

Got this box for $2.50 on sale and couldn’t resist as It’s a new flavor as far as I know. I’m not a fan of the texture of honeydew but love it as a bubble tea flavor. Stash is a local tea company where I live but it’s also really well known across the US.

I tend to add some sweetener to fruity green teas for some reason. Even though I don’t add any to plain. So I added a lil bit of agave. It definitely helped bring out the melon notes. I made this hot but I bet it would be excellent iced as well. I don’t taste any of the Guava that is mentioned but my only reference for Guava is juice. The flavor here has a slight floral quality to it as well.

Flavors: Honeydew, Melon

I would definitely recommend Golden Honeydew (green rooibos) and Melon Oolong from Lupicia if you’re a honeydew fan! ❤

Lexie Aleah

Thanks! I think I have those two on my wishlist. (:

Tabby

Ooh, I want to try this…

Lexie Aleah

If you’d like I’d be happy to send you a couple bags of it.

Tabby

Oh, sure! Is there anything in my cupboard you’d like to try in return?

Lexie Aleah

Sure! I’m open to anything without lemongrass in it and that’s not too hibiscus heavy. (:

My boyfriend was given this tea by his buddy at work. I was excited to try it as I LOVE the apple and cinnamon combo. This tea smells sweet like apples and cinnamon. Such a lovely scent. However, I don’t taste much apple or cinnamon as it is overpowered by the taste of hibiscus. Hibiscus is pretty much all I taste actually. This is so not my cup of tea. But it was nice to try!

This tea is great for a sore throat or stuffy nose. I would recommend drinking it in the winter time or iced on summer days. Since it was an herbal infused tea it wasn’t my favorite because I’m partial to black teas and true green teas. All in all a solid tea.

Double bergamot earl grey by stash.

I don’t usually drink bagged teas, but this is really yummy. Zesty like oranges, sweet and all around yummy. If you’re into tea bagged teas, I suggest you give this a go.
